Hi, I’m Shermine from the tiny Southeast Asian country of Singapore. I’ve lived in Singapore, New Zealand and Japan, and currently live in Brussels, Belgium. I love reading, writing, and telling stories through pictures, texts and music. At Itinari, I want to share with you stories from my beloved country Singapore, as well as from beautiful Japan, a place that holds many fond memories for me. My absolute favourite thing to write about is food culture, because who doesn’t love gastronomic delights? Asia is rich in culinary traditions, with a myriad of cooking styles, flavours, spices and smells. They can be so different, but so delicious. Food brings people together, and through food, we can partake in the sharing of another culture, pun intended. Of course, besides food, I will also share other ways to make the most of your trip to Singapore and Japan. I hope that you will leave with good memories and a greater understanding of these countries. So stay with me and let me tell you about the things which light up my soul. Let’s discover my part of Asia together.
