HEART COOKS BRAIN
The one thing that is common and that I had observed with food blogs, serious food/life/family blogs from all over the blogosphere is that the person behind the blog shares a part of them, a part of their life, a part of their world to the world. Mostly all of them are regular people like all of us. All of us have stories to share… a life that somehow, someway we love to share to others (not totally vain in purpose). THIS IS WHAT I LEARNED ALONG THE WAY SINCE I STARTED BLOGGING.
I am just a regular woman, from a small small country called the Philippines, from a small small town not even visible in Google Map. My life is plain and simple and humble… very common and very human. If someone would ask me WHAT DO YOU WANT TO EAT AS YOUR LAST MEAL? The only thing that I can think of and that I would truly enjoy eating is a meal of BOILED RICE, FRIED FISH AND SOY SAUCE (W/ CALAMANSI AND CHOPPED BIRD’S EYE CHILIES). I grew up on this meal, I always feel comforted and grounded eating this meal.
Throughout the last year, as I told a dozen times now, I have met amazing, super creative and kind people from all over the world. A handful touched my heart in so many ways.
Tumblr and the sweet and wonderful Amy Cao recognized my food blog and food blogging/food photography, photographers from all over the world made me part of their community here, other food bloggers from other platforms gave/gives me the kindest compliments for my blog posts and my own recipes. To a very simple girl like me, it is overwhelming, it is a true blessing. So I never get tired saying my gratitude because I am a person who never ever wants to be indebted to anyone… I always reciprocate… I give back as much and as more than I receive. Because personally, I sincerely believe that if ever my life would end today or tomorrow (knock on wood) I will have no regrets and no unsaid words of gratitude- this is the wisest WISDOM I learned from life and from living.
It is January 1, 2012 here. I want to start as THE FOOD BLOG GIRL who is cheery, and smiley and upbeat and positive. So to do this, I first have to kinda do an OVERHAUL of myself. I am going on HIATUS until I can be back Cheery, Smiley, Upbeat and Positive again. Two weeks from now will be my 1ST ANNIVERSARY here as the GODDESS OF SCRUMPTIOUSNESS a.k.a THE FOOD BLOG GIRL. And although I’ll be absent for a while… GOOFY/SILLY/MILDLY GREEN FOOD WRITING ON/OFF for a while. I know I will be back renewed and hopefully totally overhauled for the better.
I will miss you all. Be back soon… I’ll see you when I see you all on my very busy DASH!
Jeannie, Goddess of Scrump (this actually sounds like a female mobster title always to me!) <3<3<3
