Angkor Thom: Victory Gate, Bayon Temple, Terrace of the Leper King, Terrace of the Elephants, Prasats Suor Prat, and Phimeanakas
If you're awaiting a response to a comment or email, I must apologize for taking so long to get back to you. I've been remiss in visiting my friends' blogs too. :(
As the blog grows and grows, it has become more time-consuming to update each post. More photos to sort through and organize before I even get to uploading and then blogging. I have to manually insert links to each restaurant or recipe into their respective categories afterward. Old recipes to edit and re-photograph. Content thieves and other stuff have just really bogged down my usual blogging habits. Aiyah! I'm such a whiner!
Then when I get emails or comments from people who clearly spent no time looking for that information themselves, I get annoyed and snarky. Oh, I so don't want to be mean on the blog. It's supposed to be my reprieve from the cold, cruel world! But dude!!! If you email me to ask how much I charge for shipping sausages and whether I have locations in the Bay Area, you clearly did not read! Why are you wasting my time, and yours even, to email me to ask, when if you spent one second to even look around, it's fairly clear that I do not sell sausages!!!
Well, that was obviously an exception from a lazy person who stumbled upon the blog and not a reader, but I don't want to resent my readers! And I really feel badly that I have not been able to get back to you within a reasonable amount of time. So, I'm starting an "Ask Wandering Chopsticks" section. By no means does this serve to replace my actually responding to comments and emails. I still intend to do so when I can. But the last weekend of every month, from 11:59 p.m. Friday to 11:59 p.m. Sunday, I promise not to get snarky. So yes, once a month, you can ask me whether I ship sausages. The answer will still be no, but I promise not to get mad at you for asking. ;)
This does not replace my expectation that you use the searchbar or look through the archives. However, I realize that I have a lot of posts and the queue of recipes and restaurants is too long. If you want to dig through my brain or ask random, non-intrusive questions about recipes, restaurants, or whatever, drop a comment in this post or email me with the title "Ask WC." I will update this post if email questions come in. Responses to comments are in the comment box as usual.
Thanks for your understanding!
