Posted on August 3, 2011 by Aun

First and foremost, I want to thank everyone for reading this blog and supporting me over the past 6 and a half years. It is amazing to think that this blog started as a simple experiment back in 2005.

I have loved meeting readers and fellow bloggers. I have been amazed at the fantastic emails I have received from even more readers. It really has been a thrilling experience, and an incredibly rewarding one.

That said, I am going to be taking a short break from blogging. The combination of my work and fatherhood has prevented me from really giving this site the attention it deserves.

But, that doesn’t mean you have heard the last from me. I hope to be able to relaunch this site, with a new design and a new style of pushing out content, and hopefully with renewed energy, in about 6 months from now.

In the meantime, I will keep tweeting, at least more often than I was blogging.  My twitter handle is aunkoh. Please follow me.

Til then, happy eating and again, thank you.

About Aun Koh

Aun has always loved food and travel, passions passed down to him from his parents. This foundation, plus a background in media, pushed him to start Chubby Hubby in 2005. He loves that this site allows him to write about the things he adores--food, style, travel, his wife and his bouncing baby boy!
