I'm In Print!!!! MY NOURISHMENT Issue 3

3rd Issue Of MY NOURISHMENT

Oh joy, oh bliss, I have finally been published. My lifelong dream has been realised! I feel like a professor who's had his first paper published, on the discovery of lifeforms and spawning methods on the planet Zazoo or something.

But, that's not the best part. My name actually appeared SIDE BY SIDE with the QUEEN OF THE DSLR!!!!! WOW!!!! I cannot sleep! I cannot eat. I am just beside myself with joy and thanksgiving.



To have your name side by side with the Queen is like being mentioned in the same breath as err....who ah? Mawi? Chis. No la, better than that. Maybe Siti Nurhaliza. Wow, what an honor.

And, I also had MY photos published, for this particular article!!

Anyway, joke aside, yeah, I am rather pleased to have been able to contribute to this issue of the magazine. Quite a number of interesting recipes within that I won't mind trying either. It's available for sale on newstands at RM8-00.
