    Kitchenesia met Windy Iwandy, food and travel blogger under the moniker of @foodirectory. She spoke of tips to staying in shape while eating heavy and her message of women empowerment.

    An Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw once said, "There is no sincere love than the love of food."

    This maxim seems applicable utmostly to 25-year-old Windy Ivandy, a food and travel blogger under the moniker of @foodirectory on Instagram and blogspot. The Jakarta-based food reviewer and blogger started blogging food as a hobby, and also as coping mechanism to fight stress during final test in college.

    "In 2015, foodirectory rose so fast. You know, it is because foods connect people," said Windy after Mondelez Press Conference at Kembang Goela restaurant, South Jakarta. "I am always grateful for my followers trusting my reviews."

    In less than 4 years, Windy acquires more than 63,000 followers on instagram, and loyal 12,000 subscribers on youtube. For a person who started a career from scratch, this is definitely a big achievement.

    During 4 years gastronomical adventures, Windy definitely has many experiences to share. But she holds two principles that apply in all of her reviews: don't review dishonestly and don't discriminate.

    From food made by three-Michelin chefs to street vendors, she reviews any food she thinks interesting. Incidentally, she also makes those foods viral.
