Yay.....it's my 200th post!

Yay......it's my 200th post!!!  It might not be a big deal to those who blog 365 days a year but it's kind of a big deal for me (since I blog an average of 3 times a week only).  Anyway, my blog is like my baby....and who wouldn't want to record their baby's milestones (like their first teeth, their first steps, their birthdays...hey, we'd even get one of those height stickers and stick it on the wall/door somewhere and record our little ones height every year....kekeke!!)  Likewise, I like to record my blog's mini milestones too...so, bear with me ;)
I reached my first 100th post in September last year and recorded this very first milestone in my blog.  At that time, I ended the post by saying "see you at my 200th post, maybe?" thinking (at that time) that I might not get to this point!  But I did.....and here I am!

to: my first supporter
(my dear friend who initiated this blog)
thank you for your 'solid' support all this while...
and the first usually has a special place in my (blog's) heart!
Since then, I've gotten a few more 'commenting' readers and it's been a pleasure getting to know you
(and interacting with you)...even if it's just online! ;D

to: my 'commenting' readers
many thanks for welcoming me into your 'circle',
and including me in your blogroll =)
(hope to be able to interact with more blogs in future)

to: the 'one timers'
(those who visited by accident and those who left me a comment...just once
....never to be heard from again)
not sure if they still visit my blog but don't leave comments
or have just stopped visiting :'(
never mind-lah....I still appreciate you dropping by!

to: my dearest friends
thanks for coming with me on my food escapades.....
...but wish it could be on a more frequent basis ;)

to: restaurants & others
thanks for featuring my posts in your websites and Facebook pages

and finally to: my dear readers
a big 'thank you' for visiting my blog and diligently coming back ;)
.....you've helped it blossom to what it is today!

The difference between writing the first 100 posts and the next 100 posts was like 'night and day'.  These last 100 posts, I enjoyed the writing more because of the motivation (through increased blog visits) from my readers whose support and encouragement means the world to me! :-)  Also, at this "200th post" mark, I've been approached (recently) to write restaurant reviews (on a part-time basis, of course) for a mobile app that will be launched in Malaysia soon.  So, I now have a 'paying' hobby (even if it's just pocket change) ;D.....so, if I don't post as often, you'll know why.

I hope to see you all at my 300th post.....and this is one time I'm saying it with more confidence and conviction that I'll get there! *wink wink*

P/S:  Plus I think my furry friend is enjoying his 'mini celebrity' status through this blog! ;D

    1. Thanks....I'm sure you'll still be alive and kicking (you're so young, my dear), but whether you'll still be reading....hmm, I wonder....coz it'll probably take me more than 10 years to get to 1200...LOL!

    1. Thanks, my dearie. You've been my very first (and still constant) supporter and I always appreciate your kind words.

      And hey, I'm not a professional restaurant reviewer *blush blush*...I'm not that good...I'm just a "two cents" restaurant reviewer! :D :D
