Thank you Veronica [Minty's Kitchen] for nominating my humble blog for The Versatile Blogger Award. The nomination itself is truly inspirational and encouraging for me to carry on food blogging from this point of time.
What I have in common with Veronica is our passion for cooking and baking. I was attracted to her blog for its’ simplicity of recipes and especially love looking and admiring at the beautiful photos in her posts. They are really tempting for one to quickly bookmark them in my ‘Must Try List’. 

If you share the same passion as me, do visit her here.

VBA has some basic rules  for you to follow after you have been nominated.  They are:
A] briefly thank the person who had nominated you for the Award;
B] post the award badge on your blog;
C] list and share 7 facts about yourself; and
D] nominate 10 blogs that deserve this award and inform them 
Please visit this website if you like to know more about this Award
Here are Some Facts About Me
1 – I’m a Penangite from the ‘Pearl of Orient’. My late Granny was sort of a Peranakan Nyonya, wore Batik sarongs and Kebayas with ‘Keronsangs’ all her life. I remembered she had her hair neatly combed and secured with a net and ornate pins as decorations. She was a good cook but too bad, I did not have the chance to learn cooking from her because there are too many ladies in the house. I’m the youngest lady in the family then. 
2 – I do not know why I started cooking and baking. It has to be something that happens unnoticed or is it a duty to fulfill when you are married into a big family. Perhaps, it is an expectation that daughter in-laws must know how to cook. It’s not an easy task especially when your mother in-law cooks well.
3 - What prompted me to blog about food from my kitchen was the need to put on record somewhere my aging mum’s family recipes. I was afraid there will be a day my family will miss her awesome dishes. She is in her 80’s yet still busy in the kitchen. My mum is a good cook, her recipes are without exact measurements [it’s all by handfuls or pinches].  Do check out my posts in 2011 for most of her recipes.
4 - I have a collection of food magazines and recipe books which must be put to good use, tried and tasted more so to be shared.
5 – ‘Monotonous’ way of cooking/baking is not my style, meaning cooking and baking the same thing for the family within a fixed routine. It’s boring and I believe there is a wide range of food to choose and enjoy everyday.
6 - Healthy yet yummy food is my main consideration when selecting recipes, best are those with easy cooking/baking preparations and methods since these days people are always busy. Me for one.
7 – Meeting with as many fellow food bloggers on the screen is a daily chore which I look forward to. In a way, I learned a plenty from these visits. One of my greatest achievement in blogging is getting to know many people, friends from all over the global. 
Last rule to fulfill is my nomination of deserving bloggers for The Versatile Blogger Award. Here is the list:

Ann Low of Anncoo Journal
Cheah Soke Hah of No-Frills Recipes
Jasline of Foodie Baker

My congratulations to the deserving nominees

This post is getting too long and it’s time to express my appreciation for being nominated for VBA [VBA website]. My sincere thanks to all blogger friends for their generous share of experiences in cooking and baking. Most of all the valuable comments and feed-backs from readers and visitors which is the needed force to continue sharing my journey about food.
Thank You.

Hi Kimmy,
Congratulations on your blogger award! It is nice to know a little more about yourself. We have something in common, I'm a Nyonya, from Malacca! :)
Thank you so much for nominating the award to me, really appreciate it!
You are such a good cook, Kimmy! Your family is so lucky to have delicious home-cooked food. Sorry for not visiting as often lately. Due to family commitments and time constraint, I have not been posting as often as before.
Thank you once again!

Kimmy said...

Hi Jasline, you have done a lot too in food blogging. Thanks for visiting me so often.

Kimmy said...

Hi Joyce, thanks. I'm not sure if I'm a Nyonya cos' my attire is not at all a Nyonya. I have the sarongs and kebayas but felt odd when I wanted to wear them for some formal functions, kin of a very matured lady, hehehe! Yes, food blogging requires much of a time and the facts must be correct, too. I love trying out new recipes, luckily most of them turned out well enough to be shared.

Madeline said...

Congratulations Kimmy. You deserve this award. Thanks for sharing all your delicious recipes and your prompt response to my queries 😁.
Your hubby and family are so lucky to enjoy the good food u cooked for them. Wished I am your neighbor :)
Look forward to more of your yummilicious recipes. Take care.

Kimmy said...

Thanks Madeline, there are many more that deserves this award but the limit is only 10 for each nominee to name. I'm lucky to have the support from you and other readers who take the time to comment and feedback. These are much appreciated. So long as I'm energetic enough, I will continue to try new recipes and share them here. Most of all to enjoy them too, hehehe!

DG said...

First of all, thank you ... thank you so much for the nomination :) so happy :) I enjoy reading your blog with your generously sharing yummy recipes with us. You truly deserve this award.

Kimmy said...

Hi DG, I love visiting your blog for the baking recipes. But sometime due to time constraint I didn't leave any comments or feedback. I must overcome this problem....hehehe!

Chloe said...

Hi kimmy. Congratulations. You very well deserve this award for the versatility in both your cooking and baking. I also want to commend you on your dedication to your readers in your prompt response and sos especially with poor cooks like me
Heehee. My to do list from your blog is getting longer and longer! Keep the recipies coming! All I need is more time. Chloe

Kimmy said...

Hi Chloe, must thank Veronica for the nomination. I try to share simple recipes that are easy to follow without compromising it's tastes [best if the food is healthy, too]. There are good and poor cooks but the status changes with time. With your interest and dedication, you will one day be a good cook too. Don't worry, so long as I'm still active in the kitchen, the recipes will be on coming cos' I don't like to cook the same dishes all the time. As I said, boring meals....Thanks for your support. Happy cooking.
