Ieatishootipost Channel U Feature: Thanks for the support!

Food Specialists Episode 1: Part 1

When I first started blogging, I never thought I would see the day that the blog would be featured in a documentary on TV. I have been on this hobby for four years and even though a lot of people seem to think that it is hard work, for me it’s been a fun ride.

The most gratifying thing about the blog is the number of friends that I have made over the years through the blog. If you look at the makan kakis now, almost all of us have met through the blog. Apart from our usual makan sessions, some of us have even travelled overseas to makan together!

I really thank God for my family, especially for my wife, Rockett Girl, who has been my greatest fan and my harshest critic. You don’t know how many times I rave about something only to get a cursory “its ok lah” from her. I couldn’t have done this without her. I also thank my kids who have been really supportive and would wait patiently while I take pictures and bare the discomfort of eating at a “hot place”.

I am also grateful for my parents who now live in Australia. My parents taught me the importance of excellence in all that I do. When it comes to food, I have my mother to thank. I always remembered her tenacity in getting that Pandan Chiffon cake perfectly sponge-like. Sometimes when parents say things, it goes in one ear and out the other. But a lot of life’s lessons are learnt through inspiration and emulation. As a professional chef, her dream has always to run a test kitchen which she never got to do. I am hoping to get her to demo some of her recipes on video one day!

Of course, this blog would not be what it is but for the support of our kakis. They keep me on my toes and keep providing fuel for the fire through their recommendations in the forum. As you can see from the show, they are quite a bunch! If you would like to join the makan brigade, just join the forum and start bantering!

Thank YOU for reading! Writing a blog which no one reads is as good as making the perfect Tau Huay for only yourself to enjoy. So just by reading the blog, you provide fuel for the fire as well. However, you can give it a turbo boost if you would also write something in the comments! So I hope to hear from YOU soon!

Finally, Praise God who does exceedingly, abundantly above all that we can ask or think! He guides me each step of the way and gives me grace to keep pressing on. In Him, I find my purpose for being.
