Blogging is just like living in the real world wherein it is inevitable to meet new friends. I am amazed at how I started meeting people and becoming friends with them instantly online. I can't explain it but I immediately felt the chemistry and the compatibility even if I have not met them in person. I am grateful to everyone I've met along the way, and most especially my friends who support me and recognize the work I've put together.
Last month I was surprised to receive awards from other bloggers (I know it's long overdue for me to acknowledge them). One of them is Mia of Vanilla Strawberry Springfields. We maybe far apart in terms of distance and age (about 20 years) but our love for life and passion for cooking has bonded us together. I feel like I've known her for the longest time. Here are the awards she gave me, and yes Mia, it's such an honor to receive these from you!
Another blogger whom I have developed a friendship with is Liren of Kitchen Worthy. Liren has become my friend through Twitter. She's new to the blogging world herself but already she has won awards and has been featured in foodbuzz. When you visit her blog, you know she's literally Kitchen Worthy for all the accolades she has received. Liren, I would like to thank you for the Sunshine Award.
As I was writing this post, I was disrupted by 3 loud knocks at the door. It was the mailman delivering a package. A smile came across my face as I saw that the package came from Caroline of When Adobo Met Feijoada. Homemade Meyer Lemon Marshmallows and Strawberry Marshmallows were neatly
packed in two separate glossy white boxes and carefully vacuum sealed
It was a wonderful feeling to receive such a package because you know it was done with so much love. It also gives you a tingling sensation that friends in the blogosphere are now my true friends. Thank you Carol and I hope we're going to meet each other sometime soon.
A couple of weeks ago, I attended my first foodie event in Los Angeles. The whole experience was totally awesome. It was great to meet the people behind the food blogs I read online. The seminar was organized by the founders of Food Blog Forum, Jaden of Steamy Kitchen and Diane of White on Rice Couple. I would like to invite you to take a peak at this video clip: Food Blog Forum Seminar in Los Angeles. I'm thrilled that I had a brief appearance at the end of the video.
And to you my readers, thank you so much for the support and for all the love. See y'all at the blogosphere... Cheers!
