Happy First Birthday!



Happy Birthday to my blog! Can't believe it's already one year old as I am hopeless in celebrating anniversaries and birthdays. I almost forgot it's one year birthday until yesterday when I checked through my old entries. We decided a little celebrating is needed hence we bought a teeny weeny cake from Bakerzin i.e a Coeur Noir. Since we will be celebrating Splashie Boy's birthday soon, I got him to blow the candle out.

The past year has been great fun and I still can't believe I actually have fans for this blog. When I first pondered on starting the blog, I knew I wanted something to let out some writing steam plus force myself into trying new things. We are both horrible creatures of habit and tend to stick to certain places or food items to eat. With the blog, I tend to explore the food trails in Malaysia and everyday I discover something new and fascinating about Malaysian cuisine.

Even after one year, I'm still shy about the blog - not many friends and relatives know about it. I have been lucky as I made lots of friends through the blog who are just as interested in food. Another great plus point is when I meet strangers who ask why I take pictures of food and I mention the blog's name - they actually nod and say they have read it on the Internet. Wow! That really makes my day. Hope I make your day brighter with my daily entries and thanks so much for supporting my blog.

P/s the cake was super yummy! The moment I took it out from the box, I got hit by the smell of the delish bittersweet chocolate.
