Happy 3rd Anniversary to My Humble Blog!!!

I used to pen down tried-and-tested or yet-to-be-tested recipes in paper notebooks and sometimes on loose sheets of paper, and more often than not, I would forget where I have misplaced them. 

So 3 years ago, on 30 April 2010, I started this humble blog as a way of digitising my tried-and-tested recipes so that I could prevent myself from losing my precious sheets of recipes which would either disappear into oblivion, or torn into pieces by my child(ren). I remember my first 2 blog entries on that day were a Easy No-Bake Tiramisu from a neighbour and a Lasagne dish from a good old friend.

Picture of the chocolate rose cake I baked for my hubby's birthday, came in handy for my blog's 3rd anniversary.

I never thought I would go this far in pursuing my interest in baking, cooking and maintaining my food blog. I never thought I would meet so many fellow blogger friends who share the same interest as me and who would unreservedly share with me their tips and tricks in baking and cooking.  Last but not least, I never thought I would be able to continue my blog after one year. But the truth is, this blog of mine has been on-going for 3 years! After 3 years, I am still at it. Unbelievable!

I am hoping that one day I will be able to pass down my recipes to my children. My mum has never taught me how to cook, she would often chase me away the minute I stepped foot inside her kitchen so that I would not make a mess and a fool of myself in her territory. And it wasn't easy learning how to bake or cook without any guidance from dear mummy who lives so far away in Singapore. I hope this blog serves as a small legacy for my 2 kids, and one day I would be able to ask one or both of them to search for a particular recipe in my blog and bake or cook it the way I described in my blog. Seriously, that's my humble wish for the next 10 years. By that time, his Majesty will be 14 years old and Her Majesty will be 11 years old. It's never too young to start. :)

Is anybody reading my blog? I dunno, I hope so! Will I still be at it after another 3 years? I dunno, I hope so! Am I rambling to myself? I dunno, I hope not! :)
