This time we visit Nasi Lemak Korner – Como. It has Malaysian taste. I came here with my husband and my two boys, they are really fans of Asian food. The place is nice and quite cozy. We order nasi goreng and nasi lemak. Those foods that we ordered are really nice. And for the drinks we ordered raspberry mocktail and three layer tea. Love them both. They sometimes have special menu and also special dessert. Lately i’d like to try their durian strudel, but you have to call them first to make sure they have it on the day.
Address : 18 Preston Street, Como, South Perth, Perth, WA

The menu are quite variatif. See the menu on Zomato before you go there. Or you can also see their food menu here.

4 Tips for my fellow Foodie Photographer
Taken food photos for “foodie” blogs or websites, or just to share with friends now becoming popular since social media are growing. We usually taken photo that served in a restaurant when we had breakfast, lunch or dinner. Here are 4 tips for my fellow foodie photographer:
1. Lighting is important.
Window light is a great light source. It is large and when diffused it can wrap around your subject nicely. When you’ve got harsh light coming through the windows, incorporate shadows into your composition. When available, a skylight makes an ideal large, diffused light source.
Here are some photos taken when i went to a restaurant. All photos taken using natural light.
2. Composition is everything.
Since the food on the plate, bowl or glass is the star of the image, limit the distractions in the background. Using a fast lens will allow you to use the shallow depth of field to your advantage in throwing the background out of focus. Just like people often feel they have a “better side” to photograph, so does food. Turn the plate around so you can see which side is best to shoot.
3. Keep it simple.
When you’re shooting in a restaurant, be polite to servers and fellow diners. Stick to available light. Bump up the ISO if you have to, and shoot at wider apertures. Here’s where a fast lens can make all the difference as to how quickly you can shoot.
Do some experiment when you shot in a restaurant, try some different angle and use everything that you can use to support your food photo like serviette, spoon, salt and pepper jar, flower vase, etc.
It’s my first time going to Dome Riverside at Fremantle. It’s located near the river, the view was fantastic. I fall in love for the first sight with this restaurant. Their interior decor actually have not much different with other Dome but because of the location make it stand out compare to the others. And it had a lovely ceiling decoration.
I had calamari salad and lemon lime bitters this time. The salad was nice and it came in big portion. The price is reasonable. My friend had chicken masala salad and it was nice as well. Just a lil bit accident with the staff where she spill my friend coffee, but my friend said it’s not usual that the staff not nice and friendly. But I still want to go back there again. Hopefully next time it wont happen again.
Lovely place, lovely day, lovely ladies, lol.

Martabak manis is Indonesian pancake, you can easily find it on the street market in Indonesia. It’s originally from Jakarta and Bandung area. Some people also call it Kue Terang Bulan.
