Happy 2nd Birthday



It's official - Masak-Masak is now two years old. Wow, time flies and as usual I almost forgot about the blog's birthday. Since last year I celebrated with a Bakerzin cake, I reckon traditions should still continue.

This past year has been interesting with so many food blogs popping up in the blogosphere. Feels like there's a new one everytime I do a Google Blog search on a particular food item or when I scour Project Petaling Street for new updates. There has also been mini gatherings with food bloggers or floggers. Incredibly nice to meet people who think alike - camwhore the food versus themselves! This year to celebrate the blog's second birthday, I decided it should be marked by the first ever food bloggers gathering to be held next week. Hopefully (crosses my fingers and toes) that works out well so look out for reports on that event. It's currently by invitation only since it's just a small event. If it's successful, I guess it has the potential to grow into a public gathering.

Other things to look out for in the blog - I'll be launching an index of the food places I have reviewed; sorted out by area and by food item by end of this month. Hopefully that will mean easier searches for all when you're looking for something to eat.

Thanks so much for reading and supporting Masak-Masak.
Pssst, by the way could you also vote for me at the Bloggers Choice Awards. Just click on this link and scroll down the pages to look for the blog. You will need to log in to vote. Sorry for the shameless pimping of votes but mustn't look too shabby among the world's food bloggers.
