Here is my mini interview with Shella and some photos that she wants to share with us. Check out the photos of Korean dishes that she made! Her vegetable pancake (yachajeon) looks golden brown and crispy.  No wonder she gets lots of compliments from her friends when she makes it. Happy Cooking, Shella!

1.What is your name and where do you live?
My name is Shella Rianita and I am from Indonesia but currently i am residing in Sydney Australia.

“This photo was taken in Bali, Indonesia. The architecture behind us is the iconic Hinduism temple located in the area called Bedugul. It was a magnificent view since the temple was surrounded by a beautiful lake. Those three other girls are my younger sisters. The two little girls in the middle are my little twin sisters and the one at the very right is my second sister, so that makes me the oldest sister in the family.”

All of you look so cute! Your twin sisters are wearing the same kinds of yellow rim eyeglasses! Everybody looks fashionable! : )

2. What do you do and how many family members do you have?
I just graduated from Macquarie University and now I am working in Sydney. I am the oldest daughter in the family with 3 younger sisters and of course with my mom and dad.

3. How often do you cook Korean food following my recipes?
Ever since i found your website and youtube channel, I have been experimenting alot with some korean dishes. I probably could cook korean food two or three times a week.

4. What are your favorite Korean dishes? Choose 3, please.
Well, so many to choose from but if i have to choose, my 3 most favourite dishes are japchae, rice cake soup (ddukguk) and lastly, my guilty pleasure, Samgyeopsal gui (grilled pork belly BBQ). haha
