So again, I took a bite.
But I am still here.
At least for now.
I could go on and on enumerating one by one some of the biggest events in my life from the year that was, but unless you’re in for a novel reading, who wants long narratives, eh?
It was also the year when happy and great things transpired. Met few good souls, pleasantly surprised by the news of welcoming new member of the family, reacquainted with long lost passion and revived my love for it, fulfilled some dreams, created another dreams, and wrote part of a book that got published.
It was not so easy to sound so perky and lively even if you are just dealing with written words when everything around is falling spectacularly apart.
Events last year changed me a lot. It has changed me a lot that my voice here sadly could no longer keep up. And if the chase continues, it will feel like a disservice to those who up to now still take some of their precious time to visit and read my blog. It will be a disservice to me.
I am not a food critique; I am not anyone's palate.
Although it is a noble job, I am not in the position to give rankings to restaurants.
I only have respect for those who continue to master their craft in creating wonderful dishes to feed people and make money out of it.
That explains why I never wrote bad restaurant "reviews" here on my blog. I only share wonderful dining experiences. There is too much negativity lurking around the world wide web, there is no space for that here.
But I'll be honest that sharing only the good things has its drawback, some blog posts sounded like an advertorial even if most of them are not.
I apologize if ever I gave you that impression. That is not my goal for YedyLicious. Never was, and will never be.
I guess that is what disclaimers are for. Trust me, five years and I still haven't gotten everything figured out. While it is ideal that everyday I am learning, sometimes it is better to stop and take the best reroute.
I am a story teller. Now more than ever, I mean it when I said that.
There might be a different story.
Different, albeit still delicious stories.
