A Straits Times Hot Blog!

Yesterday morning, I received a message saying that my blog had been featured in The Straits Times! The alert was from the formidably plugged-in Chubby Hubby, whose own fabulous blog, incidentally, had been glowingly reviewed earlier this year in the same column. I would have missed it entirely otherwise, being the lazy skim-and-scan newspaper reader that I am...Anyways, there it was, in the paper's weekly Hot Blog feature (the curious can click on the picture above for a more legible read). I'm incredibly flattered, not to mention grateful for the very kind review by Selina Yeo, the writer.

Congratulations J. It is well deserved. Your blog is beautiful and the author of the article is right: it should not be read by dieters.

Dear J:
I love your site!
The best food blog I've ever visited!

I guess you are a Japanese.
How come your English is so good?!

Thank you for the great site.
