It’s my blog’s 5th year anniversary!

5th_birthday_candle

Happy anniversary to my blog!! What started out as a way to show my food pictures to my cousins abroad has become a full time hobby. 

For me it’s still a hobby since I love to eat and I do enjoy taking pictures. I also find pleasure whenever I get a comment or email thanking me for introducing them to a new dish or restaurant. 

Every year I’m surprised that I still blog. There are some days I’m too lazy to write or I get too caught up playing Pet Rescue Saga or Farm Heroes Saga but most of the time I still manage to come up with a post a day. 

I just want to say a few words to all of the new bloggers or those thinking of starting a blog. It’s never to late to start. Just write something you’re passionate about and most importantly do it for yourself. I treat my blog as a journal of my travels and meals. Somehow writing about the places I’ve been to makes me remember it more. I often look at my older entries to remind me about the countries I’ve visited. 

If you’re new to this blog or if you’ve been with me for the past 5 years keep on reading because I’ll be around for a long time. I would love to hear from you specially all the lurkers. 😀

  1. Happy Anniversary! I super love your blog! I feel like I know you already from reading your posts! I think I’ve read every single article you’ve written, and I eagerly wait for your new post every time. I am in the US, BTW, in a small rural area in Missouri. I’ve been abroad for 12 years and it’s been 4 years since I went back home, so reading your blog keeps me updated with the food scene in the Philippines. Though, sometimes, I try to stay away when I’m on a diet coz I always end up hungry after looking at your pictures…hehehe..:)

  3. Happy anniversary! Ever since I googled Becky’s Kitchen in 2012 and your blog post was one of the top searches, you’ve been my source for the best eats around Manila. You’re one of my favorite food bloggers in the world! 🙂

  4. I may be a bit late, but here goes . . . a very happy anniversary!

    I’ve only started travel blogging myself. (Well, I’ve done bits and pieces for years now as a side thing on my anime blog, but only since last year on a purpose-built travel blog – and not very well at that!) I remember coming across your site a long time ago whilst trawling the net for airline trip reports; now I’ll have both those and your food posts to keep coming back for.

    Cheerio, and my very best wishes to you for the years ahead.

        Hardly on the cutting edge of blogcraft, but it’s a start. I hope I’ll get better as time goes on.

        A lot of it’s about Japan (been there 5 times and planning to go back at least once a year) – frightfully addictive country. That’s what I get for starting out as an anime nut. (^_^)
