A Moment Of Reflection

Almost 4 months ago, I started this blog for a lark. It was one of those spontaneous, spur-of-the-moment decisions.

To date, I have received 3 "awards" - from Cherry on a Cake, Almost Bourdain and Bits of Taste (thank you, lovelies). Now, we all know that these are not real awards ... more like a friendship chain mail :) But this fellowship is precisely what makes it so special - that these accomplished food bloggers think enough of me to welcome me into their circle ... I feel honoured and humbled.

Thanks to this blog, I have had the privilege of befriending so many wonderful individuals - on my blogroll and beyond (Nana, Kenny, Ninette, Tracie, Linda, Catherine, oh ... too many to name, but nonetheless all treasured). You are truly talents. To be in your company is an accomplishment for this Little Teochew :)

Better yet, I now aspire to cook and bake and write and photograph better! Yes, I am always in awe whenever I visit your gorgeous blogs. How do you all do it?!

When I started this blog, I had absolutely no idea where it would take me. Today, I marvel at how far it has taken me. I sit in the driver's seat, with happy anticipation of where the road will lead. I am thankful for the company of these beautiful people ... the reason why my blogging journey has so far been one heck of an enriching and enjoyable ride.
