Maybe an intro is in order :) my name is Serom (pronounced like Jerome but with an S instead of J), and my love language is good foodddd 😋 I’m an associate clinical social worker by day and full time mommy of two boys and wife to my sweet hubs who does the dishes after all my food prep at night 😍 I’m currently on maternity leave, but returning to work in just a couple weeks and re-joining the many working mamas out there whom I respect SO much. . . I live in a multi-gen, multi-cultural household with my first gen Korean immigrant parents, Mexican/German husband, and an always hungry toddler who will only eat what tastes good (the best taste tester ever); the baby is getting good mama’s milk but missing out on so much yumminess - I’m promising him he’ll join in on the real stuff sooner than later. . . There are a lot of mouths to feed with different preferences in this house so I’m always trying to think of the middle road and what will appeal to everyone. Most times, it’s a win 😋. . . When I was living abroad after college, I learned that one of the words for family in Korean (sik-goo) actually means to eat together. And isn’t that so true? Thank God for our 5 senses and how we can experience food with our entirety! No wonder food brings us together and we cherish the memories of what we’ve shared around the table and whom we’ve shared our tables with. . . And now I’m sharing my table with you through this platform! You’ll see mainly my favorite - brunch! But so much more, from crowd pleasers to fancy meals to Korean and fusion food. You’ll also see meal prep ideas and toddler friendly food. Eventually, I plan to incorporate in more mental wellness tips as well. If there’s anything in particular you’d like to see, feel free to shoot me a message! Thanks for following along! ❤️ . . P.S. photo is from our first trip to Korea, wearing traditional wedding attire 🇰🇷 #brunchidea#intro#hello#newtoinstagram#workingmom

Luego de haber almorzado y caminar un poco por el centro de Pereira, me dirigí al lugar donde debía esperar el bus que me llevaría al colegio en Las brisas y con un poco de susto, de ese que tienen todas las personas que están en una ciudad desconocida, de ese miedo turistero, me dirigí a la parada del bus y a la primera persona que vi le pregunte si por ahí pasaba el bus número 35, esta señora con cierta incertidumbre y amabilidad me dice que por ahí pasa el 25, pero que no tiene ni idea, porque se dirige para el otro lado de la ciudad al que yo me dirigía. Tras una larga espera, bajo un paradero de bus, con el sol justo encima mío y con el calor característico de esta ciudad, vi que el bus volteo a media cuadra de donde yo me encontraba, me toco salir corriendo con mi maleta y el paquete que llevaba para no perder ese bus, no me iba a aguantar otra media hora de espera bajo ese calor tan espantoso. Ya en el bus, luego de casi cuarenta minutos de recorrido por calles estrechas llegamos a Las brisas, donde el panorama de bienvenida es una variedad de casas, una gran parte de construcción indígena, a lo alto de la montaña. Este barrio se caracteriza principalmente porque allí vive un gran porcentaje de personas pertenecientes a comunidades afro y a comunidades indígena (embera en su gran mayoría) que llegan desplazadas por la violencia de su territo en busca de seguridad. Justo a la entrada del barrio nos encontramos con el colegio "compartir Las brisas" donde muchos niños de estas comunidades y de los sectores aledaños reciben educación, cursan primaria y bachillerato, muchos se educan en esta multiculturalidad mientras crecen lejos de su lugar de nacimiento, recuerdan sus tradiciones, juegan, se tejen las trenzas entre amigas, hablan el embera entre ellos y por sobre todo crecen soñando lo que algún día quieren ser o quieren hacer. #transputamierda#everydaymacondo#colombia#pereira#multicultural#storytelling#noor#photojournalism

Speaking to Vanitha about what Tamil means to her, allowed me to reflect on what this adopted language has meant to me, and that was special in itself. The important takeaway from this interview was that the best Indian (Malaysian Indian) food in Sydney can be found at Sydney Marina in Pendle Hill. I took her advice very seriously and that was my first stop after this interview. ・・・ #repost @whatcanwedo.podcast I interviewed fellow Singaporean Vanitha, owner of @vaaranambooks, on the challenges of being a migrant parent and the challenges involved in preserving one's mother tongue in places where there may not be mainstream access to the language. This was an interview that brought back memories from my own upbringing. My parents speak Malayalam, one of many Indian languages, but because there was no access for me to formally learn the language through the education system in Singapore back then, I don't speak it today. However, all was not lost - I gained another Indian language, Tamil because of Singapore's bilingual education policy, which has given me access to so much in terms of people, culture, films and perspective. . . . . . . . #podcast#whatcanwedopodcast#whatcanwedo#tamil#languages#multicultural#singapore#singaporean#malayalam#indian#migrants#overseassingaporean#singaporeaninsydney
