I was deeply honoured to be labelled by FatBoyBakes (FBB) as one of the famous food blogger around town. More so when I was invited by him to attend the official launching of myNourishment, a new food magazine.
First, the launch event... it was held at Nikko Hotel few days back. I arrived with my new blog sidekick as what FBB intro him to Joe ahead of the stated time 7pm. Chief Editor Ryan Khang was the first to greet us and showed us around what they have inside the ballroom. Not only that... he started to introducing me as one of the famous food blogger around. Thank goodness the light was superbly dim in the hall that he did not see the blush on my cheeks. Other than Ryan, I managed to congratulate Edyth Ban and Ban Mei Kei for the launch.
If you have been following my blog for sometime, Ryan is no stranger here. I attended my first cooking class conducted by him at The Cooking House. I remember having lots of fun at his salad making class. Not only myself but I can testify that my boiboi had loads too at his cookie class. Up till now he still remember Ryan Kor Kor and asked when can he go again.
Hubby and I were busy checking out the dips at the dip counter. Chef Francis Lim was busy making the 4th dip and that was when FBB came over. We have fun savouring the delish dips whilst catching up.
The next I knew Joe came along, followed by boo_licious as we drank fresh fruit juices, dragon fruit enzyme and wine. When Cumi and Ciki arrived, I knew who are they based on the pics they posted in their blog and I introed myself using my real name hehe so Ciki didn't realised it was the face behind this blog. Anyway, that was amended later on. It's too bad Jackson, Pea, Julian, Nigel and Allan can't make it, otherwise it would have been great. I was also honoured to have met famous chefs, editors and players in the food industries.
Just before the simple launch, Ryan gave his speech, signs the card after the guest Dr Steve... and tadaaa the mag is launched!!!
