PerutBesi's 4th Anniversary

>> Sunday, January 31, 2010

Yes, to my disbelief, it's been FOUR years since this blog stepped into the blogosphere!


Looking back, it's been a delightful & appetizing journey since the day this blog began. Nope, I ain't some famous celebrity-blogger like some of my blogger buddies, but I'm enjoying this passion of mine no less! :D For this 4th anniversary, I would like to take the opportunity to thank some people who have played a part in the success of this blog. Here it goes!

Note: List is not in any particular order.

1. Anne Khor
My all-time supporter & ex-co-owner of this precious blog :) Thank you for your support & help in the design & posts for this blog!

2. All readers of The Ruthless Eater
Without your overwhelming support, this ruthless eater would not be able to present even better food posts as the years go by! Thank you for staying tuned to PerutBesi!

3. Joey Ong
Girl, you were this blog's great supporter when it first started! Without your ideas & encouragement, this baby wouldn't have gone so far in the blogosphere :)

4. Aaron Phua
My #1 supporter; even when you're so hungry, you still waited for me to take some good photos of the food first, before poking your fork into the dish :P Thanks for your all-time encouragement, ideas, comments, & support in my hobby!

5. My university classmates & juniors
There are too many of you to name, but you know who you are...thank you for supporting myself & Anne in this initial hobby, which is currently more than just a hobby, but a platform for me to share information & meet up with other foodies around the country! I miss you all!

6. My mum
Thank you for your excitement whenever I post up a blog post. Your encouragement & support (even though you don't know much 'bout the internet & computer :D) spurred me on!

7. Alex Chua & Kiew
I must give credits to the both of you techies ;D Thank you for helping me in improving this blog, especially with ideas to include maps, interesting tools for blogs, & bearing with my craziness in events/usual lunches, just to capture food photos!

8. Rao
You're my best reviewer! Thank you for alerting me on the typos & strange formatting that appear on my blog posts :D

9. My DHL colleagues
Those of you who read my blog & give me comments & ideas from time to time, thank you very much! Thanks also for giving me loads of opportunities to capture food pics during meal times with you all :D

10. Hans & Chris
*hugs!* Thanks to the both of you, my food blog has gone way beyond what I imagined it to be :)

11. Jek Tan & Frat Mustard
I enjoy hanging out with you & the rest of the foodies :D Would really love to meet up with you all once again...thank you for the invitations to food events & the most importantly, for inviting me into theQguides.com!

12. All foodies/food bloggers/lifestyle bloggers
Thank you for the newly formed friendships & the lovely companionship at events & meals :) ... for the encouraging comments & the occasional ideas on how to improve my blog & which places offer great food!

13. God
For giving me the joy of writing & capturing photos of food; for giving me a good sense of smell, taste, feel, & sight... for giving me opportunities after opportunities to experience the richest of His blessings each day!

The list is endless! There are still so many people to thank & I won't be able to contain them all in a single post :P Please forgive me should I have left out your name. You know that you mean a lot to me, especially in my blogging 'career' :)

I sure hope to keep this blog alive, interesting, & 'addictive' for all my readers :) It's been really fun 'serving' all of you & journeying through this gourmand path together with good food, family, & friends!

- Ruth
