10 Malaysian Food Bloggers To Guide Our Food Adventures With Reliable Reviews by VulcanPost.My

Today I would like to write about how thankful and happy I felt as my Blog ~ FollowMeToEatLa gets recognition by Vulcan Post.my as one of the '10 Malaysian Food Bloggers To Guide Our Food Adventures With Reliable Reviews'.

As I have written on my blog that I'm foody at heart, ever ready to try out new food and dishes whenever I chose to eat out. My family of foodies loves eating - they practically live to eat and is always on a look out to try KL/PJ best places to dine.

Our love for good food got my blogger hubby who blogs at Bestrestauranttoeat.blogspot.com, Uncle Hong compiling a personal list of the best food to eat for value and money. I also love reading food reviews and checking out new recipes to feed my ever hungry family. My foodie family often goes on a 'culinary trip' or 'food tripping' out of KL to check out Malaysian cuisine.

Besides that, my daughters are part of the reasons why I chose to be a food blogger. Both of them are lifestyle bloggers, especially my eldest daughter, Carmen Hong who actively blogs at www.carmenhong.com since she was still studying. My second daughter, Clarrisha Hong also blogs at Clarrishahong.blogspot.com was a great influence for me too. They inspired me to write about my dining experiences thus joining them on the bandwagon as a food blogger

Blogging together with my family has brought me lots of fun and happy-bonding time with them especially my two girls. I enjoyed many perks as a blogger besides the free food-tasting but most of all, I get to spend lots of  quality time and bonding time with this blogger family of mine, especially with my two lovely daughters. I am very lucky and blessed to enjoy a close mother-daughter relationship with them since I started my hobby in blogging.

Nothing was easy at the start for me. Imagine a full-time home maker, a stay-at-home mum who only knows how to cook, clean, care for my family for the last 17 years and now have to start learning how to use the computer to write, blog and shares my blog post after every food sessions. But with many hiccups like missing draft posts, different fonts in post, alignment all out thingy.... I have to learn everything from scratch with great help from my family of course.

The 'Hong Blogger Family' ~ We hang out, we chill, we ate, we blog and be merry together and the coolest part, is that Auntie Lilly get to be friends with their bloggers friends too. Blogging has brought me immense happiness and satisfaction, now that I have a wide circle of friends or my 'Makan Kakies' gang as I called it. My daughters' friends called us Auntie & Uncle every time we met at food sessions, so therefore we decided to use it as my blogging names as Auntie Lilly & Uncle Hong ever since.

The blogging world also opened up many opportunities for me to meet and talk to successful business owners of restaurants and passionate, creative famous Chefs as they shared their passions and dreams of working in the food and beverages industry. It was an enriching and eye-opening experience for me as well. Many friendships have been forged too through blogging and I have many friends and associates from F&B. PR and media industry.
