Where I was born: Japan, Shiga prefecture
When I came to Perth: 2003, as a student to learn English! It was my first time to travel to another country (I had never left Japan before).
What did I do in Japan: After graduating high school I went to a collage to study English and animal science. I love animals and wanted to get a job which relates to animals in some ways. I also had a dream to come to Australia since I was a child as my image of this country is “lots of nature” “lots of wildlife”.
What did I do in Perth: After graduating English school I took Commercial Cookery course for one year. My original thought was taking animal nursing course but I changed to study cooking. Cooking had been one of my big interests since I was little too. I also had other interests such as learning special make-up for film industry making energy masks and creating monster!
My life in Perth: Living with my husband who is from Indonesia, and a baby boy Hiro. We occasionally go back to Japan and travel to Jakarta. Homecoming trip is my favorite part of the year. I love food, shopping, life … everything in Japan, but most of all I miss my family.
<About this blog>
A blog by Ume, a Japanese girl who lives in Perth, Australia.
Started as a food blog, but I write about Japan, Perth, and other things that I’m interested in too.
I love food, both eating and cooking. I don’t like wasting food so sometimes I eat too much.
I eat almost anything, except okura, tororo (grated raw yum potato-slimy), raw eggs… whatever got slimy texture. And, possible some weird food which people eat in China and elsewhere.
Any feedbacks? I’m very glad to hear from you
I started to run this online bakery shop Bagelier since 2009. Personally I like hard, heavy, chewy bagels, but Australian people tend to like soft and light ones. Bagels at Bagelier are more like Japanese style bagels, and you have a variety of flavors to chose from! If you like bagels, why don’t you try Bagelier ?
