Ok, it's been almost a week that I didn't have any post. Two reason, one is because the Blog of the Week Contest is running and two is that I don't quite have Internet access and been thinking of what to blog in the coming CNY, which my holiday will start on the 6th Feb and end on the 16th Feb.
Back to this week's Blog of the Week. Yes, you see the title. This week Blog of the Week selection is non other than kyspeaks.com.

Now, I don't think I have to do much introduction about kyspeaks.com. I'll do a how I get to know kyspeaks.com rather than who is KY.

Two years ago, I was working as a sales executive, and as in sales travelling is a must. Then one fine day I got to go to a place to meet up a customer in a place that I'm not very familiar with. So, as what I usually do with unfamiliar road or places, I google it. I always add in map + location in my search. In the result, there's a website that got a map for that area that I'll be going to, so I clicked it and to my pleasant surprise, this site is something like a food review site. Yes, I've found kyspeaks.com.
After reading a few post and I got hooked. As I am a food lover myself, the urge to know where to get some good food is strong. I've read from the latest to the archived. When I am having trouble of thinking where to go for dinner or lunch, kyspeaks is a good stop for me.
What do I like about this food blog?
1. It's categorized by food type, state, and down to a typical area. For example, you can look for food from Sea Park or PJ Old Town.
2. The KY style map. Reading about good food but don't know how to go to the place is like saying to a girl you like, I bought a diamond ring for you but you'll have to find the way to it yourself. With a map provided, I can find the food reviewed with ease without me having to google it again.
3. The no-nonsense collate style photos that let you see about 4 dishes in one picture rather than 1 picture of each dish will save the loading time as you anticipating how is the food look like.
After a few months of reading the post in kyspeaks.com, I've also decided to start my own blog so born the now defunct simonseow.com. I failed as a food blogger because I don't have a camera to take the picture of the food. Who will read a food blog without any pictures? That's why Simon Says start without any food post but soon it may have some food post because I can now borrow my cousin's 3.2 megapixel digital camera.
By the way, I just found out from kyspeaks.com that kyspeaks.com turned 3 year old on the 1st of Febuary 2008. So, this post is posted just at the right timing LOL. Here, I wish Happy Birthday to kyspeaks.com and may you continue to blog about good food for a glutton like me. So, let me present to you Simon Says Week 2 Y08 Blog of the Week; ***drum roll****
