I am Vivien, born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Am previously blogging under http://ho-jiak.blogspot.com, but decided to have my own domain after a year of blogging under blogger’s blogspot. Also credits to someone who promised me a domain when my unique reader per day averagely over 50 🙂 and helping me to set up this domain, choosing of web-hosting etc

Why Dish with Vivien? Previously was blogging under ho-jiak which is a local food show, but ho-jiak seems common and impersonal, i wish for a name which can relates to me, food and malaysia, all three if possible, and finally settle with “Dish with Vivien” which is also a cooking show, hosted by a Singaporean host named Vivien… duh… anyway, welcome to my blog.

Contact me at vivien_1223{at}yahoo{dot}com

for below opportunities:

– Food products which you wish to provide me for review. Example of review i have done for Sri Kulai microwable meal.

– Delicious new openings around klang valley (kl & selangor)

– Due to feelings of obligations to give invited reviews good ratings, most time i will not entertain mass blogger or impersonal email sent by marketing agencies. However, any food tastings or testings to get feedback (even without having to write blog post on it) are welcome.
