Wow what a whirlwind of a year...2012 was definitely a significant, eventful and busy one. Not only did I turn 20 but it was also the year that I started my food blog - precisely on the 3rd of March 2012. I then became acquainted with Instagram somewhere along the way and ever since, it has acted as a sort of food/life timeline for me.
I have been so lucky this year to have eaten so much delicious food - both savoury and sweet! So what were some highlights?
It was the year I attempted cooking...oh god...:P
I do see a good future potential though...

It was the year that I tried to be healthy? :P
Honestly it is almost impossible to diet when you're a food blogger. In all seriousness though, Mero Mero from Westfield Pitt St Mall and The Galeries Food Court does the best salads hands down. When I need to tone down on my crazy eating, I turn to this place.
|I went through a phase of eating healthy...a short phase nonetheless |
|Produce at Mero Mero super fresh and tasty - you can make your own salad or try their fab combos!|
|Did I really think all that dressing was healthy? :P|
It was the year of happy holidaying/eating during my annual trip back to Shanghai - and a quick visit to HK again as well :D
|High Tea @ The Peninsula Hotel (HK) - nothing but a fancy affair|
|My favourite Asian/Mango desserts - Sago obsession!|
|Awesome buffet at the Shangri-La hotel|
