Hello!

I'm Juliana Loh, also endearingly known to my friends as J-Loh.

I'm the editor-in-chief @chickenscrawlings and a seasoned, well-travelled freelance journalist covering stories about travel, food, culture, motherhood, luxury hospitality and design.

I'm on regional F&B panels and deeply interested in how trends evolve and was a regular contributor to WGSN and Trendwatching networks.

I'm married to a chef (*** Michelin) and mum to a spirited, fun-loving 3-year old. We divide our time between Hong Kong, Singapore and France. Before you ask, it's almost always me doing the cooking at home.

As a retired corporate hound, I've previously lived in Treviso, Beijing, Macao and Hong Kong the past 20 years, which involved alot of travel. In between, I survived cancer and had a baby, and am currently focused on raising my pet human.
