Nice Matters

nice_matters

I had the 'Nice Matters' award passed on to me by both Pixie of You Say Tomahto, I Say Tomayto and Julie of A Slice of Cherry Pie. Thanks, ladies! They were the two people I would have on my 'Nice Matters' list to pass the award on to as well but to in the interest of spreading the luurve around the food blogging community, I would like to pass this very pink award on to the following folks:

Little Corner of Mine - her blog always feels very homey and anyone who could serve up such delicious and creative dishes and maintain a food blog with two little girls demanding her attention certainly deserves an award!

Frank Tastes - A lovely blog to read with the stylish design, smooth writing and beautiful illustrations.

Closet Cooking - I'm not sure whether Kevin would hesitate at the pinkness of the award but I love his blog for the wide variety of food that he tries. Very inspirational.

I've only just gotten back to the UK after being away for over two weeks, on holiday in Singapore and Malaysia for Chinese new year. I have eaten way more than I thought was possible just about every single day (heck, it was almost every single meal) and both the husband and I have put on at least 1kg each. I guess that's not too bad given how much we ate; I should be grateful that it wasn't more!

Although I've not had the chance to cook at all for a fortnight, food was an integral part of our trip as I went with a long list of food in mind that I was determined to eat and have my fill off. As Andy said, we pretty much had to eat enough of the food that we love and miss in order to tide us over till our next trip (usually once a year)! Over the next two weeks, I will be posting some highlights of our favourite dishes and cuisine from Singapore, as well as some food items and traditions specific to Chinese new year. Once, I get over my jetlag, that is!

Thanks for thinking of me! It sounds like you had a great vacation. I look forward to hearing more about the food that you had/enjoyed.

Congrats with your nice matter award

Thank you for the award. 1 kg is really nothing, I would have put on at least 3 kg I think... *sweating* Looking forward to your upcoming posts! :)

Thanks for the comments, folks. I hope to get some photos uploaded very soon. It's difficult to organise my thoughts with so many photos taken!

little corner: I got sick as soon as I came back (might have caught a bug on the plane) so maybe I'll lose all that weight again haha...

Thank you for giving me the award, Nilmandra! Sorry about not replying earlier: I had been away and couldn't attend to my blog+comments as quickly as I should've. D:

I hope you had fun while you're in Malaysia and Singapore!
