My Blog Turned 2!

After passing the one year mark, I wondered if I could make it to the 2nd and I did! I actually wrote my first post on Feb 22, 2006....Feb 22 has come and gone ( I didn't post about this due to some reasons then) and my blog is already over 2 years old! As I have mentioned a few times, it started out as a personal blog and I was taking photos with my little Samsung camera back then. As a matter of fact, the first time I posted pics of food in this blog was on Mar 20. It wasn't even a food review then though I mentioned a bit about it, but it was more on life (more so, when my good friend Jen who partly inspired me to start blogging, passed away). Then I had my Panasonic Lumix since July 2006 and my first post with it was Dim Sum at Chynna, KL Hilton, dated 30 July. So I guess my blog should have two birthdays! Let's see what happens on 30 July later ;o).

From posts with zero comments and now to having a comment box of lovely people, I smile as I think back. Comments from strangers turned into ones from friends as we got to know each other better through time and even gatherings. I look forward to having more strangers leaving comments in my blog so that in time, we'll be friends! I want to thank all my readers and friends for still visiting my blog after these couple of years! This blog has given me many new friends, here and everywhere of which I am thankful for. Here's to more good food, great company and new friends! Maybe another specific wish for good food that won't add on to my weight??? LOL!

A moment's pleasure on the lips, a lifetime burden on the hips!

Here's some thumbnail food or food related photos that I've captured throughout these two years.....and counting!

Thank You All, Once Again!
