Hurray, It's My Blog's 1st Birthday! Let's Celebrate With A Giveaway!

More than 120 recipes. More than 90 food discoveries. Six major dinners.

All covered in about 185 posts blogged within the last 365 days.

Not bad for the first year of this lazy novice cook’s blog, yeah? 🙂

I started blogging seriously about food on June 26, 2010. That was the time when I just came back from the U.S. where I hoarded a handful of cookbooks and decided I will cook at least one dish every week and write a journal about it. I never expected to cook and blog a little more than that, nor join online food communities and a blogging contest. I didn’t expect to meet new friends from different parts of the world who share the same passion for food. All I ever wanted was to share my love for family and friends through cooking and keep a small corner in the cyberspace to document what I cooked, where I dined out, and what I discovered.

Not very ambitious but yeah, that was really all I had in mind 🙂

After one year, I realized I have shared love not just to my family and friends but also to people I don’t even know. Better still, these people share the same love for food and have become my online friends through blogging, FoodBuzz, and Twitter! And these new-found friends even showered me with blog awards though I don’t even feel like I deserve them 🙂

It’s been a great first year and I’m looking forward to counting more. And as my way of saying THANK YOU for inspiring me to keep on cooking and blogging even if I’m not the best blogger you would ever encounter, I’d like to invite you to celebrate my blog’s first birthday by joining my Anniversary Giveaway.

Because we’re celebrating, I’m not gonna make it hard on you by asking you to add me up in Facebook or follow me on Twitter or share this link, although you’d make me really happy by doing so 😛

  6. This is open to everyone… yup, wherever you may be.
  7. I’ll announce the winners not later than June 26, 2011, 10PM (GMT+8). Yup, on the same day that the contest will end. I’m quick, what can you do? 😛

What’s up for grabs?

I will choose two winners who will receive an Amazon Gift Card worth US$25 each. You can use that to purchase anything you like from Hey, just a little disclaimer. is NOT my sponsor. I’m using my own private funds for this giveaway.

P.S. Again, from the bottom of my heart, THANK YOU SOOOOO MUCH!!!
