Okay, so I’m updating the blog a lot sooner than I thought I’d be. But that’s only because today’s message is SUPER IMPORTANT. Which is that voting for the 2012/2013 edition of The Miele Guide is now open! Over the past 5 years, my business partners, colleagues and I (not at Chubby Hubby but at Ate) have produced 4 annual editions of what is still the only independent and regional restaurant guide to Asia. The guide has grown from strength to strength each year, gaining more and more credibility within the industry–and we very much owe that to you guys. We’re very grateful for your participation. Almost 20,000 of you took part in the public vote last year. And with thousands of restaurants across 18 countries vying for just 500 spots in our guide (not to mention the Asia’s Top 20 rankings), every vote counts.

Checking in — revamp still in the works

Hi everyone. It’s been a really long time since I’ve been active here.

I thought I would share some recent photos with you guys. S and I took off for a super fast 3 day trip to Tokyo last week in order to celebrate her birthday. While we would have loved to have stayed longer, we had to get back in time for my son’s first birthday, which is only 3 days after S’s birthday. Yup, little T is now one year old and he’s the cutest kid on the planet (but hey, I’m biased!).
