Originally from Medan in Northern Indonesia (near Aceh) Hendrik Wijaya came to Australia 3 years ago, his wife arrived 12 months ago and they now have a beautiful 6 month old baby girl.

Having taken over the family business in Indonesia after the death of his father, Hendrik helped turn this around to be one of the best restaurants in his city.

He then came to Australia with no job, business or family support and has made it all work.

Not only is Hendrik now doing his PHD in Engineering he also runs a small business, teaches engineering and has a 6 month old baby.

He gets up at 6:30am each day and goes to bed around midnight to get everything done.

As an ex-body builder he also gives us a few health and fitness tips.

Makes me tired just thinking about it.

Is the modern man a hunter or a gentleman? A manual labourer or a technophile? In today's culture the modern man usually is a mix of many things. The modern man must be adaptable.

Gender roles are changing and blending together and the stay-at-home dad or part time dad population is growing.

More fathers than ever are participating in their children's nurturing and upbringing.

The thing is that fathers and mothers come into the parenting process differently though. For the mother, the connection is biological. It's a part of her.

Fathering, on the other hand, is less so. Therefore, it's important for men to learn the skills they need to be a good dad. For some guys it's more intuitive, like kicking a football, but most guys need a coach or some direction.

DADDY EATS LAST discusses what it means to be a man and a father in modern society and all the issues that comes with both.
