It Has Been A Great Year Indeed
Gosh how time flies... we're on the closing week of the year already, with a bright new year awaiting us in 2 days time. Let's reminiscence why 2010 have been so great to me at least.
When it comes to blogging, I guess nothing beats getting to know more people and making friends along the way. What more when FOOD is always the focus of our attention whenever we meet each time :p Food really does unites people!
It also never ceases to amaze me how many people, mostly strangers, have told me "OMG you're Babe_KL??", "Your blog is Babe in the City - KL? Ohhh I do read your blog."... well it's not only me but Capt'n Hook gets equal attention too *chuckles* He got one just yesterday when he called up a distributor and the person asked "Ohhh you must be Capt'n Hook?!!!" after informing him that he's a food blogger.
This is the year where we finally got ourselves exposed, no longer hiding behind Babe_KL or Capt'n Hook. NST featured us as their cover story with our photos plastered on the cover of Life & Times plus centrepage spread. I nearly 'died' when I heard big boss had read the article and I wondered how when he was away on holiday? Luckily he was receptive and looked happy holding the paper telling everyone that "Hey she works for me and look how famous she is to appear on 3 pages!".
As for work, I was offered a VSS after working for donkey years with the company in August. It was sad but at the same time I was really really happy looking forward to a long break. I'm still on my so called sabbatical break which a lot of people are envious of.
I guess things do happen for a reason. When a group of us food bloggers were invited to Bayan Indah, never would I ever dream of Rohani Jelani offering me to work there when she heard of my VSS albeit it's on a part time basis. So these days, if you attend classes at Bayan Indah, you might see me there assisting in the kitchen. Not only that, I was given to opportunity to work with her team on developing recipes and coming up with new themes. What more could I ask for going to work in such a lush surroundings that come with fresh air and chirping birds?
BoiBoi is growing up nicely to a fine young man. A lot of times he really surprises me with a lot of things. Perhaps it's the thing about growing up with mostly adults, he's far more matured than his 8 years of age. Progressing all right with school but of course with lots of growing up pains as usual with friends in school. He's a real sweetie. Watch out all the gurls out there!
There's also something in stall for both of us as well, hopefully by next year it will blossomed into something great. We're really looking forward to the new year, praying that it will be kind to us again and may all of us be in good health, holding more goodies our way and be blessed with the great company of friends and of course delicious food.
We want to take this opportunity to wish all of you a splendid New Year with all the good tidings in your way!
Happy New Year!
