3 Years and Many Moo to Come

Argh. I'm just minutes late and have missed 12th April by a whisker.

Anyway, by God's grace The Hungry Cow turns 3!! Thank you all for your support and wonderful companionship through these years. It has been moo pleasure.

A home dinner, cooked with the parents' love, with family and a few friends over lotus roots soup, steamed Chinese Pomfret!, braised mushrooms, steamed Chinese Pomfret!, fish maw, steamed Chinese Pomfret!, fried flower crabs, steamed Chinese Pomfret!, prawns, steamed Chinese Pomfret! and French beans, is heart (and stomach) warming.

Anyways, this blog has been inspired by many pioneers who have come before me. Chubby Hubby was the first food blog that I've visited and his pics and post have never failed to make me envious of his lifestyle drool.

Some Like It Haute oozes with personality and the other blog that I want to pay tribute to would be Recent Runes with his beautiful and often humourous posts. After a long period of being a ninja food blog reader, I finally took the plunge three years ago.

Chew On This: Over the past one year or so, many PR companies as well as food companies have been engaging food bloggers with invitations to product launches, food tasting etc. While I generally accept these invitations whenever my schedule permits, I certainly don't live or blog because of them. Otherwise, I would have quit after the 1st year of blogging. Haha. And as with all the rest of my posts, I post only things or experiences that I personally find to be relevant, good or memorable. It's about staying true to what I believe.
