Grateful: 1st Anniversary


Chicken Teriyaki Sushi by Kimono Ken

This blog just turned ONE year old! :)

It's unbelievable that I've written over 150 posts in a year, improved a lot on food photography, got invited to events by reputable businesses and met wonderful people along the way. 

I made this post to thank the following who inspired me to work on this blog (though ideas of getting into a diet sometimes intrigue me). :D 





1. I would like to thank Albert Einstein of How to become an Einstein for giving me an opportunity to do my first guest post (though he actually called me a 'foodiot', which just doesn't sound right). If you're a blogger and would want to do a guest post, just check out his site. :D

2. I would also like to thank Pinay Thrillseeker of Love Conquers All for including this blog to her Top Ten Emerging Influential Blogs for 2012. It is deeply appreciated. :)

3. My deepest thanks to the following establishments for dropping by my blog or Facebook page or by helping promote my blog posts to show their appreciation: Johnny Rockets, Cafe de Bonifacio, Clucky's, BRGR: The Burger Project, Bugsy's Bar and Bistro and to other restaurants I have failed to mention (sorry, memory lapses!). My heart melted when Yabu and Manang's Chicken posted 'blurbs' of my reviews on their walls. You guys rock!



Thanks to Richie of the The Pickiest Eater in the World for this picture!

4. I would like to thank the following for inviting me to their events: Seattle's Best Coffee, Globe Telecom, TLC - Discovery Channel (through Alfred of Fried Chicken for the Soul, thanks a lot!) and Openrice Philippines. My deepest apologies if I had to decline some of the invites (I work full time for an IT company). I hope I will get invited to more events in the future.

6. My special thanks to PEx Gluttony Society (or PEx Food Club), college friends, Indramates for the food discoveries, food trips and laugh trips! :) Thanks for understanding that a 'wait period' is necessary before eating the food because I still have to take photos. Hahaha!

7. Thanks to my fellow bloggers who never fail in dropping comments, giving suggestions and sharing my posts! :)

8. And THANKS TO YOU, my dear reader! You're one of the main reasons why this blog is still running! I do hope this blog is helping you discover food places and encourage you to appreciate different cuisines. 

Hope I could keep another year or more. Wish me luck! :D
