IMG_9874Karen is my name but I have been using the nickname strawbeari3 for as long as I can remember.  I was born in Malaysia, where I spent most of my early childhood and teenage years.  I came to Brisbane solely to get a university degree, but ended up falling in love with the city.  The rest is history…..

Married with three kids: a furbaby who thinks she is a princess and two boy who are treated like princes.  Our furbaby has her own Instagram page.  If you are a pet lover like us, click here to visit Fluffball McNuggets on Instagram and follow her doggy adventures.

I started blogging to share my travels in Canada with friends and family.  Upon returning to Brisbane, I decided to continue blogging about my passion for food, both creating and eating.  I don’t claim to be an expert in food critique and have tried to provide an unbiased view based on my own opinions.

Aside from blogging,  I enjoy baking and cake decorating.  I’ve taken several lessons in cake decorating and have baked for family, friends and various fundraising events.
