It's me... NicolaHi there, I’m Nicola, the person behind Wots For Lunch?

I live in the City Bowl of Cape Town in a little flat with my boyfriend and our crazy cat.  I work as a software developer and try to pack a lunch for myself at least three times a week.

The beginning of my journey that resulted in this blog began with the book Memoirs of a Geisha.  After reading the book I developed a bit of an obsession with all things geisha which turned into a fascination with Japanese culture in general and eventually Bento and sites like Cooking Cute, Just Bento and Adventures in Bentomaking.

In 2007 I created a blog on 24.com and started posting pictures and descriptions of the lunches I packed for myself.  I connected with a great bunch of bloggers and foodies there, some of whom I’ve had the pleasure of meeting in person. Now I’ve decided to take the plunge and try my hand at self-hosting.

Now that you know a little more about me and my blog I hope you’ll stick around and join me in my regular lunchtime adventures.
