Hello, my name is Bee. Founded in 2006, Rasa Malaysia is a recipes website with over 800 easy recipes, from Chinese, Malaysian, Japanese, to Thai, Vietnamese, Indian recipes, and more. The site also offers many baking recipes, dessert recipes, and American recipes catered specifically to my American readers and audience. All recipes on Rasa Malaysia are easy, delicious, tried, tested, and work. Many readers cook from my recipes on a daily basis and have wonderful and delicious results. Currently, Rasa Malaysia has a social media following of over 2 million fans across all channels.
I am also a cookbook author, professional recipe developer, and content publisher. I am currently based in Irvine, California, USA. Born and raised in Penang, Malaysia, I was exposed to all sorts of cooking styles since I was little. My first cookbook “Easy Chinese Recipes” is currently one of the best selling Chinese cookbook on Amazon, and constantly ranked number 1 in its category. As a recipe developer, I work brands such as Mizkan America, Red Boat Fish Sauce, WorldFoods, Betty Crocker, and more. Rasa Malaysia is the biggest Asian recipes and cooking blog on the Internet.
I work with many brands on product endorsement, recipe development, advertising, sponsorship, giveaways, product reviews or cooking demo. To work with me, please fill in the contact form or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. (Media Kit is available upon request.) To join my growing fan base and community, please check out Rasa Malaysia’s Facebook Fan Pages here, follow all my boards on Pinterest, join me on Twitter, Google+, or Instagram at @rasamalaysia.

“Rasa” is a Malay word. Derived from Sanskrit, it means “taste.” Rasa Malaysia is a culinary journey through Asia’s rich, complex, and intoxicating gastronomic delights—taste of all the flavors of Asia. Launched in July 2006, Rasa Malaysia has since expanded to cover all Asian recipes and beyond Malaysian cooking. You can find many regional Asian recipes on Rasa Malaysia, for example: Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese, Japanese, Indian, Indonesian, Filipino, and more. There are also baking and non-Asian recipes on the site. Here is the complete Recipe Index.
