Hello...... And welcome to Selby's Food Corner blog!

"Selamat Datang di Selby's Food Corner blog!"

Selba aka Selby is just an ordinary girl who loves food and lives in Jakarta, Indonesia.

She really enjoys taking pictures of food, especially on the streets although it can be quite challenging for her because some food vendors might not really cooperate. Some people/strangers might not feel secure with being captured; or her friends are annoyed because she is too busy snapping pictures of food.

A part of food blogging, she also has chances to meet some celebrity Chefs.

From left to right:

  2. thanachai: Hi Thanachai, thanks a lot for dropping by and also your comment :)

  3. I really enjoy your blog, especially living so far away from Indonesia and missing the food so very much! :)

  4. Dear Selby,

    I'm including your blog in the list I build on Indonesian Food Bloggers here:
    + http://epicurina.blogspot.com/2010/07/indonesian-food-bloggers.html

    As the list is just starting, and I'm reviewing each one of them, you can see for yourself that the list is still quite short. Therefore, should you have any recommendations kindly please inform me and I would include it in my list along with some comments.

    The criteria is simple; it generally contains writings on Indonesian food, and is done in English.

    Best regards,

    Bayu Amus
