After 21 Days

IM BACK! After 21 days of touring the US and Canada, being blessed with the opportunity of witnessing God’s wonderful creations first hand and all the beauty He made with nature, searching out the popular food joints in both countries and tantalizing my taste buds with delicious foods but most importantly, just being able to spend the last 21 days with my family- real good quality time, with no distractions and bonding with them all over again.

omy.sg Singapore Blog Awards 2012

I was very excited to receive an email two days ago informing me that Gninethree was one of the top ten finalists in the Domino’s Best Food Blog category of Singapore Blog Awards 2012!

I have not had the opportunity of blogging frequently the past week as I am currently globetrotting around the world with the family after attending my sister’s commencement ceremony at Columbia in New York City.. So this entire post is constructed on my iPhone 4 and I apologize for my lack of resources in posting a more creative and photo-filled post.

BUT I promise I will be back with many travelogues of yummy food places from both the US and Canada once I reach home!

And these are a couple of E-interview questions omy.sg has for the finalists!

10 Things You Should Know About Food Bloggers

I recently came across this post by Not Quite Nigella about 10 Things You Should Know About Food Bloggers and I just had to share it because it is so TRUE!

And sadly if you do know me in real life, I think many of you will find that most if not all of the 10 things hold true for me. Let me know if you find yourselves nodding when thinking about my eating habits as you read on!

1. Be prepared to eat early. Like a reverse Vampire, we love the light as more light means better photos. Eating dinner at 4pm? Sure, no problem, the light will be good then. Similarly, you’ll also find us seated near the window more often than not as the light is better there and we only use Flash in extreme circumstances or in closed blogger-friendly company.

2. We’re shy and hate to be stared at, especially while we are taking photos. However if it’s something exciting, we retreat into a haze and snap away uncaring. That’s called the “Paparazzi Brangelina moment”, when we descend into a frenzy of snapping.

3. Most people react to romantic lighting positively. Not the food blogger. We will utter things such as “crap, not this moody, romantic lighting again. What about my photos!”. Because as you know, it’s all about the photos ;)

4. We love to share food. The equation is straightforward: the more food shared, the more food sampled and the more we can write about.

Resubscription

Hey everyone and especially my wp followers who have subscribed to my blog (to receive email notifications whenever I blog),

I have recently moved to http://gninethree.com which technically redirects when you type http://gninethree.wordpress.com anyway but the difference is when I start posting in my new blog, you wont receive notifications anymore. If you are still interested in following me (which I hope you are!), could you please resubscribe at the sidebar in the box on the right?

Sorry for any inconveniences caused! God bless and have a lovely weekend!
