One of the benefits of having worked in the media in Hong Kong around the time of the Handover was that there were so many great journalists, photographers and other industry professionals living there, or running in and out of the place all the time. One of the guys I became friends with and came to respect immensely was an Asiaweek writer named Joel Tesoro. Since our days in HK, Joel has gone on to write a book that was named a 2005 Kiriyama Prize Notable Book in Non-Fiction and is now slogging away at Harvard Law School (yah, real underachiever, eh?). Joel is also a contributor to Harvard Law’s Global Voices blog. Earlier today, Joel posted an article that he wrote on a few Southeast Asian bloggers, yours truly included.

Thks for sharing the article, CH. Very interesting indeed. Also, it gives your ardent readers here a little insight on S & yourself.
I’ve been wondering….since you guys are such great cooks. Have you consider opening a cafe or restaurant some day? I will be de one of many of your ardent supporters to patronise it. 🙂
Ha! CH you’re indeed our Celebrity Food Blogger! Way to go!Cheers!

no shame in telling the world of something good 🙂 it’s good to be read and promoted! if only others had more guts to promote themselves…

I stumbled upon your wonderful blog through the Global Voices Blog. I am very glad they featured your site! Excellent pics and excellent topics. Keep up the good work.

Wonderful! There’s nothing wrong with a little self-promotion. As you said in the piece, I feel like some of the work being done on food blogs is far more compelling than the food magazines. A little heightened awareness for all of us? No problem.

Richly deserved. Now, about those 320 cookbooks….
