Who’s a DKLo? (WHAT’s a DKLo?) And what in the world is a ‘makan’?
DKLo (pronounced Dee-Kay-Low, and NOT Duck Lo as some people have suggested) also known as DK/Darren/”That Guy”, is me! An Indonesia-born, Canada-residing, Singapore-loving speaker/presenter/marketer who’s the latest person to take the plunge into the whirlwind that is food blogging. I’m a newbie in the world of gastronomy consumption and I don’t necessarily always know what the hell I’m doing, but I’m going to enjoy every bit of it.
Born and raised in Jakarta from Chinese parents, I quickly realized that I have several core passions in life, one of them being food. Known in the Indonesian language as ‘makan’, the activity of, well, eating played a big part of my growing up and I soon realize that it is something of a regional pastime in Southeast Asia. It is only 14 years after my arrival in Canada did I make the decision to gather my random musings and experiences in culinary crusades into one unified blog.
Having answered the two questions that most people would most likely ask when looking at the title of the blog, I’ll leave you guys to it and hope you enjoy reading my posts as much as I enjoy writing them.
So without further ado, MARI MAKAN! (Indonesian for: Let’s Eat!)
