A year that was.

I am hoping that this coming new year will bring more exciting cooking moments for me. I will have my second anniversary in October. Yay for me! I have been reading other food blogs and and realised that we all do the same thing for different reasons. I do think that for a lot of us, my foodies friends on Twitter, it is just because we have bottomless stomach and we blog for the love of the food. I do admire my new found foodies friends who have been doing it for years and are still actively involved and I'm almost ashamed to say that I am talentless compared to them. Yes, I am in awe of you all, just to name a few.

Billy, A Table for Two
Suze, Chocolatesuze
Ellie, Almost Bourdain
Thang Ngo, Noodlies
Bee, Rasa Malaysia
Rita, Mochachocolatarita

They support each other and have gatherings at Food Festivals, parks, even during the festive season when they are spending time with family and close friends. I believe that in a way, we are all one big happy hungry family. LOL ;) I love how we continually torment each other with food photos and share stories or new found places.

This post is just a reflection of my thoughts, as to why I started my food blog. Firstly, I was inspired by Bee from Rasa Malaysia. Her website and food recipes brings Malaysia home to me. It's not easy living overseas. It makes it harder when one is lacking all the food comforts from home. So I make do with what I can find from Woolies and Coles Supermarket, on the Asian food aisle. On that note, can somebody PLEASE open up an Asian grocer here in Wagga Wagga already? I am dying here.

I have found that, the one thing that makes me, the happiest is when I am cooking or baking. It doesn't matter if it was an epic fail or a success in the kitchen, cooking and taking snapshots of food or just inhaling the aroma of whatever that is cooking awakens my senses, awakens me and this is why I blog about food. It doesn't matter that I am not as famous, YET...hahaha.... just by doing this, it gives me a purpose. A goal. The challenge of the day is not burning down the kitchen ;) so to speak... for me!

So to end, I'm awaiting eagerly for my pie tee mould and rosette mould to arrive from Malaysia. This is what they look like. I bought these moulds on Ebay at Do you remember my jam tarts that I made last year? The pineapple jam tarts? Well, I bought the cookie moulds from this same seller.

Hurry up Austpost! I can't wait to try out the pie tee recipes from Rasa Malaysia.
