Older and Wiser (?)

2 years already!

I can't believe it...
Wow, it's actually been roughly 730 days since I first started this blog and now, I've slowly amassed about 105 food/ restaurant reviews.

I've had a lot of fun so far : ...trying my best to set up a little database of honest reviews of Malaysian restaurants from a layman's point of view. Sure, it's been pretty damaging on my bank account (since I also have a layman's salary) but hey, I love food anyway so I'm not complaining.

To everyone who has been visiting, thanks for all your support.
(I don't see a lot of comments here but I can see my stats sloooooowly climbing so I know you're out there somewhere....)
Also, a big thanks to all of you who have linked me on your blogs too.
(I'm honored that you like my reviews enough to link me)

Oh, and on the day just before my blog's birthday, I managed to make a small appearance in the in the Star Newspaper's Sunday Metro section.
(Ok, so it's not much... and I didn't get remunerated for it at all but it's kinda nice to see my review in print lah)

to babe_kl:
I just hope that one day I can learn how to be a good a cook as you too so that I am not just another "girl who only knows how to eat"...

to b:
Thanks ye kindly Sir B.
I will try my best not to disappoint.

to "joe" who is constantly craving:
Such sweet compliments! I am very flattered.
(Thank you, thank you! You are too kind....)

I do try my best to be honest... but I still dare not guarantee your satisfaction 100%... Tastebuds vary too greatly from one person to another - for example : I hate durian, and I love spicy/ sour/ salty food.... So, if you love durian and hate spicy/ sour/ salty food then we may have a HUGE disagreement on my recommendation....

to mycoffee:
Thank you for your support!
I will try my best to see whether I can maintain this blog until I am 88 years old and can only "chew" porridge.

to meiyen:
Thanks, meiyen!
You keep up the good work on your blog too, ok? I need to have plenty of yummylicious photos to drool over.

to jemima:
My 15 minutes to fame mah.. So, of course super happy lah!
(It could be my only claim to fame EVER, who knows? Haha)
Anyway, thanks....

to kampungboycitygirl:
Thank you both...
I will do my best to continue to makan,makan,makan.
