It has been 2 years of fun since I started blogging with the4MOOSE, sharing gourmet experiences, meeting fellow food enthusiasts, gaining insights from chefs and self-taught cooks, savouring a myriad of flavours, aromas, sounds, visuals and textures from all kinds of food…
Over the past 2 years, I have shared my first encounters (and love) of Kyoto, the news of the first two Singaporeans to clinch the Berkeley PRIZE Essay Competition, the NS reflection by Mu Yao, the insights from Chef Millar at One Rochester or Chef Derick and Chef Ratha from Dezato and Black Sheep Café respectively or a delicious find in Singapore or Hong Kong… all of which I thought were worth sharing even it has been a tasting session (a controversial topic, my views are similar to what Peter has wrote about the topic.)
This blog has been and has always been a realm of personal expression, a platform for sharing my encounters with food, my love for art and travels for the past 2 years. However, fatigue has caught up with me. The competiveness, the dominantly solo journey, the possibility of strained friendships, the politics in food blogging is draining the life out of me. Therefore, I have decided to take a break from blogging and focus on the stuff I love.
I hope you have enjoyed the past two years of travels, food, art and photography that I have brought you and thank you very much for your support. While am going to take a break from blogging, the4MOOSE will still be here except it will be the3MOOSE now.
Do browse through the blogs in my blogroll some of which are my favourite blogs such as Camenberu, Yumyumformytumtum (a truly honest blog) and a new blog by a friend, the Study of Nomnoms.
