OMy Singapore Blog Awards 2010

25 May 2010

It gives me great pleasure to share the good news that The Simplest Aphrodisiac has just been selected as one of the top ten finalists for the Best Food Blog category in the Singapore Blog Awards 2010. This is a blog contest that is being organised by omy.sg from the Singapore Press Holdings, and my thanks must go to Choong Chiat who was the first to nominate me for the award from the very start. It is indeed flattering to know that the judges recognise the efforts that I've put in for this blog, and while it has never been for fame (it still isn't), such marks of recognition is greatly appreciated.

Of course, I don't fancy my chances all too much, especially since omy.sg is a bilingual agency after all and all I can offer is a good command of the English language. What me and SPH have in common, and apart from a couple of the other finalists, is that I've followed the practice of long-time food critic Wong Ah Yoke by paying for my own meals and not peppering my blog with free food tasting sessions. This way, I've felt that I could write with much more honesty, sincerity and accuracy, as well as being able to gauge the worth or value of the dishes.

So, if you've been reading this blog, and if you like what you've been seeing and reading, show me some love and vote for me please! If anything I think the trip to Hong Kong and/or Phuket is more enticing than the "status" itself haha! Just head on to the Best Food Blog category, register as an omy.sg member (one-time registration, tedious I know!) and click on the tiny "vote" banner on my picture on the left hand column. You get to vote only once per day, so the next time you're voting just click the banner and a login window will automatically pop-up. Easy peasy.

With all that said and done, the other good news is that I would be starting my food posts on my Italy trip... next! I know some of you readers are getting tired of an overdose of Singapore food (or worse, the deluge of free invite sessions by other bloggers) in the local food blogging scene, so here's something for a change for a while :)

Last but definitely not least, a big thank you to everyone for your amazing support! Keep reading, keep eating and keep living life!

Sincerely Yours,
Harris Chai
