Snippets of Suri

Food | Travel | Photography



Welcome to Snippets of Suri!


A little bit about myself:
My name is Suri. I am originally from SelatPanjang, Riau Island, Indonesia. It is a very small town with no cars, no airport, no shopping malls. We travel by bikes, motorcycles and tricycles! and we use ferries or boats to travel out of town. Interesting isn’t it? If you want to see some photos from my hometown, Click Here. I left my hometown for Singapore when I was 13 years old for education. Lived in Singapore for 4.5 years then moved to Melbourne, Australia for university. I am currently living in this beautiful city, Melbourne, Australia for close to 9 years now. Although far away from home and family, I still love my life here very much and hoping to stay put.

Currently, I am a PhD Candidate studying the metabolism of turmeric by the gut bacteria in the University of Melbourne, Australia. This study encompasses multidisciplinary areas such as chemistry, microbiology and biochemistry. Currently writing my thesis and hoping to graduate ASAP! When not working for my PhD, I pursue my other passions in life!

My passions for food and photography!

Loves being adventurous with food, be it eating out or experimental cooking myself. Loves photography especially landscape, urban and historical sites. I enjoy taking photographs of friends and family too! It is no wonder why I love traveling because well you guess it, I could try new food (cuisines), experience new places and hence the thousands of photos I could take!

This blog started the same year as I embarked on my PhD journey. It is kind of a de-stress for me from PhD but also to share with everyone about my passions for food and photography.

So Snippets of Suri is to share my food and cooking adventures; photographs of this beautiful world, people and anything that God had created and given and also some traveling experiences. Occasionally, I also share some of my journeys as a christian and life in general. I am very thankful to God for everything that He has given me.

I am hoping to post something new each week. I’d love to hear any comments/feedback/questions! Email Me by clicking here.

Follow this blog! and Please share it with your friends and families 😀

Once again, welcome! Look around! I am sure you will stumble into something you like 🙂

Thanks for visiting!

      Thanks so much Indah for your kind words and encouragement! I appreciate it very much! PhD is really tough and challenging! Cooking and photography helps to de-stress sometimes 🙂 & blogging is just to share these passions. I did take close to 2 years break when I was very busy with research. But hopefully I am back for good now! I am hoping to write more posts too! Actually, I am having my final PhD presentation in 2.5 weeks time!!! Will definitely keep everyone posted 😀 cheers…
