...hence the start of a new chapter in my life

Looking back at the ups and downs that I have been through for the past 12 months, I said to myself 'I will remember this year, 2007'.

Reminiscing the things that have stepped in and out of my life this year, I was abit overwhelmed at first but then I started to learn that this is 'life'. Though it is beyond expectation and knowing that there are many more hardships to come, it is the journey of life that I have to move on.

Work wise, I have just accepted a job offer based in Singapore. Yeap, it is a big step for me to make. Having stayed in the legal line for a year, I decided to venture out of my comfort zone and move into an industry that is new and fresh to me. Not to mention that I have to be physically parked in Singapore at least for the next 2 years. Will be moving there soon. And yeah, I will still continue to feature food, food and more food :p from Singapore of course.

I will definitely miss my dear malaysian floggers. You all are more than welcomed to visit me there and go for makaning sessions. LOL...sounded as if I'm not coming back anymore. Aiks, the flight only takes 35 mins wei. I will be back to fix my hankering for Malaysian food.

Till then, cheers to the start of a new chapter in my life and year 2008 in 2 weeks time.

P/s: Nope, I'm not closing down my KL food blog, more KL food reviews coming up :)
