Happy 1st Birthday 'Irene's Getting Fat!'

Hip hip hurray!
DSC01085

I really can't believe it's been one year since I first made Blogger account and publish my first post. When I was thinking of making my own food blog, I wish to just share my culinary journal, which has not changed until now.

I wasn't expecting anything major from this food blog of mine, all I wanted was just some comments from my fav Aussie food bloggers such as Suze from Chocolatesuze and Helen from Grab Your Fork, to be really honest with you. But oh boy, so many great things have come to me through this blog.

It is crazy how internet can bring us so many unexpected surprises. One of the greatest advantages I get from blogging is the people. It's amazing when people are just commenting at each others' posts at first and finally become good friends. I have met awesome humans which I know I may not be able to meet if it isn't for this blog.

I remember when I was first invited to my first food tasting ever, I was completely excited. It's also great to see how much I have developed my writing and photography skills, which need more and more improvement I believe. Sometimes I wince when looking at my old posts' photos. So it's kinda relieving to see something looking like this:


...has become to look like this:

And yes, both of the photos above were taken with the same camera.

I am so grateful that the father had decided to invest on a bigger, better DSLR camera, and he kindly let me get a hold onto it even until this moment. I prefer snapping pics with the DSLR than my small Sony dig-cam, as the results are significantly different and with the DSLR I don't need much editing-photos skills. I am not really good at Adobe, really. I am really happy to improve something like this:


...into something like this:

The best part I have received is the support. Every comment or critique from all of you, my dear readers, makes my day. I love the feeling of knowing that this little journal of mine has been read by other people, and I hope from the bottom of my heart that all of you enjoy it. Thank you very much for supporting me all the way until now, and I promise to provide you more food porn.

I am truly sorry that I can't do giveaway which is usually done by birthday blogs, but I will do it when I am on a more stable grounds. I promise! To make it up, I'll make something so unique and cheeky, I'll post it on Wednesday. Stay tuned.

From now on, Irene's Getting Fat! will just get better so that all of you guys can enjoy it even more. The writing style will be improved, and hopefully I can improve my photography and photo-editing skills as well.

Thanks again and cheers!

Hip hip hurray!
