Phuket, Thailand

It's the post you've been waiting for! It took me a long time because I had lofty ideas of what I would write, but tonight after the 1000th time the same wave of guilt washed over me for sitting on this post for so long - I've decided to go minimal.

My life as a food writer

This is me on the job in Port Dickson, at The Verte, taking a photo of a salmon bagel

For those of you who don't know, I've been working as an in-house writer under HungryGoWhere for almost a year now, and I'm always asked plenty of questions about my unusual job. It's fun but it also takes up 90% of my time, so just like any other job, it has its pros and cons. Here are some complex answers to some of the simple questions a lot of you might have for me!

Me and Popek
Hello everyone! My full name is Megan Desiree Leong Xiu Hui, thus "MDLXH" - I've been going by this moniker for many, many years online so if you're looking for me on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, you will most definitely find me under that handle. ;)

I started blogging when I was about 16, but I was never really consistent, so this is my attempt to actually blog regularly about things I like, places I've been to, all that good stuff!

So here are some quick fast facts about me:
  • I was born in 1990.
  • I am fully Malaysian - Nyonya, Hainanese, and displaced Chilean.
  • I got a BA in Humanities focusing on Creative Writing from the U.S.
  • I currently get paid to eat and write.
And you can read the rest from my blog! I hope it will be a wonderful journey for all of us so please keep coming back and follow me on all the social media so we can keep in touch!
