DMBLGIT and Happiness ...

DMBGLIT April 2010 - Winner, Aesthetics, Orange Tian

The last few days have been hectic, sometimes frustrating, sometimes rewarding and wholly sleepless as I finally figured out my domain issues after more than half a year dormancy and started the arduous and unending process of tweeking the look and feel.

But, finally, I think I am ready to show it to the world. Lo and behold, Fork Spoon Knife, my baby, now has it's own domain, www.forkspoonnknife.com. The feeds, you have subscribed to, should be automatically updated, so you won't really notice much difference other than the layout aspects....

And.... What better way for a new start than with an award, eh?! I cannot tell you how high up in the air I floated, when I saw the mail from Julia, host of April's edition of Does My Blog Look Good In This (DMBLGIT), starting with "Congratulations...."!! My Orange Tian had won in the Aesthetics category!!!!

I had just woken up and this jolted me instantly into the stratosphere. I came back briefly to earth to read the rest of the mail, check out all the winners, including lovely Meeta of What’s For Lunch, Honey and inspiring Kris of Bake in Paris. Then, I was up there again... am still up there, touching down briefly now and then for, you know, chores, and other inescapable stuff.. :)

Photography is a new passion for me. I have learnt much from a friend who is a photography buff and also from fellow foodies' gorgeous clicks. I am still learning... there is so much room for improvement. So, it is an awesome feeling to be patted in the back for my work. I am super happy, honored and much grateful to Julia and the judges Dominque, El, Giao and Mowie and Andrew of Spittoon , who started it all, for making this a very, very happy weekend! :))

  1. Asha!! Congrats on your well deserved win!! Whoohoo!! How cool is that? And congratulations too on your new domainname.. I am currently redesigning my Dutch blog and it is giving me headaches. And is also the reason I have been rather absent lately but hopefully I should be back soon.
