Who would want to see a movie about my "foodie life"? But apparently there were enough of you who did that I was nominated for a Foodbuzz Blog Award. Yay?!
If you'd like to do so, please go HERE to vote for me, and while you're at it, check out all the other great blogs that were nominated. You don't have to be a blogger to vote, you just need an email address. Voting ends on October 29.
In other news, Christine of Kits Chow nominated my blog for Zlamushka Spicy Kitchen's Tried & Tasted food event, in which other bloggers and non-bloggers cook recipes from a featured blog.
This month's featured blog is yours truly. Trupti's Food Corner is hosting the roundup so please check her blog if you plan to cook or would like to cook something from Wandering Chopsticks.
Thanks to Ksenia of Tales of A Spoon for the great logo. Deadline to be included in the Wandering Chopsticks Tried & Tasted event is October 31.
And lastly, my "Goi Ga Bap Cai (Vietnamese Chicken Cabbage Salad)" was featured in "Best of the Web" on Saveur.com on September 9, 2009, which means Wandering Chopsticks gets listed as a "Site We Love."
Oh geez, I better stop or I'll get a swelled head. According to LA Weekly, there were 3,500 nominations for the Foodbuzz awards? Whoa! And 'fess up! Who was crazy enough to want to see a chubby girl eating? What would a movie about my "foodie life" entail?
I need a virtual broom so I can sweep and pretty up my blog for all these guests! ;) Thank you so very much for nominating me, for cooking my recipes, and simply for reading!
And the day just got even better! My cousin, Phong of MidnightMare (who also designed my awesome banner), was named as one of three Fashion Angel Awards' "emerging designers" for Fashion Week LA! Whoohoo! You can see him in this clip on CBS2/KCAL9 or on ABC7, and in the LA Times' fashion blog "All the Rage." I got a sneak peek at the new line and it's pretty fabulous!
