The Fake Asian

Thank you for dropping by The Fake Asian, the creative outlet of myself, Mee-lin aka Mee (May). You will find a lot of talk about cakes and other sweet stuff as baking is my #1 passion. Because I’m a true believer of having your cake and eating it too, I’m at your disposal to help make your dream of cake become reality! So don’t be afraid to contact me and together we’ll make it happen!

Amsterdam is my hub and home aka the place where most of my magic happens. I’m a lover of DIY, travel and yummy tasting food so I shall be sharing some of that as well. Oh, and if you’re wondering “Who, what, why?” Yes, I am the fake Asian! You see, ever since I was a little girl, the world has identified me as some kind of Asian; Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Filipino and sometimes even Japanese. In reality I’m a simple girl from Surinam, with a very mixed ethnic background which includes a teeny sprinkle (about 25%) of Chinese blood. Hence the Fake Asian ;)

Please don’t be shy or scared to reach out. I’m always available for questions, suggestions or collaborations so drop me a note and I’ll be sure to reply asap.
