I've had many things lined up for " www.cookingismypassion.blogspot.com "'s birthday celebration happening this Sunday; but uni work and other obligations have set me back quite abit.
My very first post...sigh...it's been awhile...
My photography was hopeless (I blame my 2.0 megapixel camera), my editing was crap, recipes were simple but my way with words has still remained the same. Countless funny moments and memories I share with many who come and go; most of them involving mess-ups in the kitchen, endangering my life with sharp tools and typing up blog entries whislt under the influence of alcohol. *laughs*
Here are couple of quotes from my very first blog entries.
The beginning of my blog
This blog is dedicated to my love for food and
the culinary arts. I wouldnt call my "noob" cooking skills culinary arts..but
its certainly headed in that direction. I am an enthusiastic junior
chef-->yes wearing the apron does make me a chef *cheeky grin*...im still
missing the chef hat! Being bound to my uni lifestyle (mini budget and schedule)
i have very basic tools and ingredients, most of my concoctions i make from
common items at the local grocery store, or the 27/4 gas station down the
street! (when im desperate). Every now and then, i get to splurge on a few
extras like fresh berries and good quality chocolate (still desperate for a
proper pie dish!).I am the queen of improvising! I have to, i've done it for
years and i do it so well! Most of my recipes are derived from lil bit and
pieces of what i have available. I have always been good at craft and creating
"something" out of "nothing" and i dont see why I shouldnt apply that to cooking
*shrug* saves me a $$! hehe. I guess i have learnt most basics of cooking and I
have a good sense of flavour and taste. I love to eat; and i from that, sparked
my love for cooking.I have a long journey in pursuing this passion of mine, to
learn, to experience and to EAT! :P. (29th March 2006)
I compiled a few of my favourite pictures from a week ago to start off the blog. I guess this is where the idea of starting a blog came along, i began taking pictures of yummy looking food with my lil camera and wanted a journal to keep myself on track; see my progress...yadda..yadda. (29th March 2006) LINK
I wonder if there are anonymous readers who've stayed with me throughout the entire year. I remember a few individuals .... Mom, dad, sis, Ashibee, Kristen, Jess ...okay; I don't remember as many as I thought I did. >.<...my apologies if you havn't been mentioned.
It's a love hate relationship with this blog of mine. There are days where its the last thing I want to think about; and there are times when there isn't anything else I rather do than BLOG. It frustrates me...it disappoints me...makes me proud and keeps me sane all at the same time. Juggling uni, holidays, cooking, casual jobs, cake orders, catering, *currently (magazine writing) has certainly pushed my blog's priority back a fair bit. If I had any sense. I would abandon this journal of mine. But of course, I have hardly any sense at all. ;)
plus.... I love you guys too much... :')
Thanks so much for all the support...Thanks for the 800-900 blog readers a day mark on my site meter and thanks for all your annoying questions. ;) They make my day *heee... XOXO
I'll be having something special on Sunday the 1st of April; to mark my 1 year anniversary. Something along the lines of a special cake for myself, some chatting and a live streaming broadcast of me in my kitchen. Drop-by to see what's cooking; and for those who have always wondered whats happened to that email in 2006 they've sent me; my dog probably ate it ;). Just kidding...I appreciate all that 'attention' clogging my mail box every morning.
Hope things work out this Sunday; will be up in the morning fixing it up. Can't wait!
