's 5th Blog Anniversary Giveaway [Photo Contest]

Exactly 5 years ago, I opened this blog to chronicle my never-ending food trips with Paul. It was no secret how much we love trying new restaurants and we rejoice with glee whenever we hit a gold mine. People would ask me why do I blog and my answer is simple : I love to eat and I love to write..'nuff said.

Contrary to what others may think, I don't blog for a living. I have a full time career that I love just as much as blogging and everyday I thank Him for it. I blog because I am truly, madly and totally deeply in love with what I do. True Love, you may it. I am passionate about sharing my food discoveries with my readers and I aim to do this for as long as I can.

Today, I celebrate my 5th Blog Anniversary. It has been a fun ride since Day 1 as I enjoy hearing from you, my readers.

Now, let the fun begin!

Thanks to my very generous sponsors, I am opening the much-awaited Blog Giveaway Contest where I will be rewarding readers with fun prizes. From gift certificates from my favorite restaurants, coffee shops and food brands to a cool laptop / travel bag and even the chance to have an overnight stay or to enjoy a grand buffet from my favorite hotels too! As Maria and the kids would sing in the Sound of Music..♪ these are just a few of my favorite things! ♪

What are the prizes at stake?
