Restart

Again, another unintended and unplanned fresh start.

So. This is another great opportunity to start afresh, except there really isn’t much to rebuild, since I was rather inactive on the previous version of this site anyway. Suffice to say that this site has not been receiving the attention it deserved for the past 4 years or so. At some point in time, it did ever cross my mind to shut it down for good – not because it costs a lot (in every sense) to maintain, but more so because a blog without new posts is as good as dead.

That was until a very dear friend asked me one day if I would resume regular blogging – she said that she missed seeing new photos of my bakes for she loved looking at them when she needed some cheering up.

Her comment gave me pause. I didn’t know my blog had that effect on her, or for that matter, perhaps other readers as well. You see, getting nothing but requests for recipes from some passerby readers could become quite tiresome.

I decided to put things into perspective instead. Not everyone who visited my site wanted to push my buttons and test my boundaries. Through the blog, I met several like-minded bloggers and also had a regular group of readers which I had unfortunately lost after an absence of 4 years. I enjoyed the interaction and the writing. More importantly, I really do enjoy the baking and photographing.

All previous posts and comments are completely gone. Forever. I didn’t back-up. Rather, I chose not to back-up although I did save all the posts in pdf format for reference. In retrospect, it was less painful than I thought.

I don’t intend to re-use the old posts much, in fact, none if I could help it, so it might take a while to rebuild the site again. If you were a faithful reader from the blog of my previous ‘era’, you would already have a glimpse into my personal blogging style. If you had liked it, then I would like to invite you to stay tuned for more.

To my new readers, let me extend a warm welcome to you! To start off, you may wish to begin with some house rules first.
