July 10. A prize claimed

So I held a small contest for family and friends, in which an officemate won. Mechanics were pretty simple; it was mostly to celebrate my yearlong stint with Appetite magazine and my 4-year old blog. As prize, I cooked a special dinner for her and two friends, plus two more of our office mates (since our boss was in town). Here are some pics they uploaded on their IGs (I was too busy cooking and plating haha). It was a super fun night! Deepest thanks again to all my supporters and followers. Here’s to more awesome years ahead! :)

Happy 3 years to my blog! Must admit that it went by pretty quickly. Even though I don’t get to post as often as I did three years ago, I’m still happy with all the little triumphs we’ve achieved. Thank you, my dear readers, for all the support, and may you serve awesome meals from your own (small) kitchens as well :)

Cheers!
