New Year, New Beginnings…

2009 was a year of deliberation. Indeed, there were many life decisions to be made. For all who still do not know, HFB have quit his job of almost 3 years and finally took a step of faith (well, some called it stupidity) to sign up a 15 months full time culinary course. You see, it has always been his dream to start a food establishment of his own, and he reckons it was time to work towards it.

That being said, 2010 is therefore a year of putting words (and thoughts) into action, and tons of excitement awaits. And fret not, he would somehow still find time to update this beloved blog despite his new hectic schedule – just for all you faithful readers out there.

Change is good... well sometimes. And hopefully, 2010 will also mean a revamp blog template for HFB. Maybe a 3 column, maybe WordPress – we shall see. But hopefully he can squeeze some time to look into it. Otherwise, any web experts out there who would like to volunteer their expertise is gladly welcome! You know how to reach me.

And if you also have not been kept informed via his Twitter updates (yes, you can find it at the side bar), HFB have been travelling for the past one month around various parts of Australia including Melbourne, Sydney and Tasmania. Plus his trip to Perth earlier this year, this would mean one should also be expecting a “Taste Down Under” series on this blog coming real soon.

So sit tight and feast well in 2010… Bon appétit!

I quit my job 1yr4mths ago, while looking for other job, had the inclination to switch career to culinary area but still undecided as I'm afraid, it's encouraging to see a living example from you.

Any advice? Like what school do you reckon in S'pore, what to expect and stuff?

Thank you! HAPPY 2010 to yoU!

@为食主义, Harris & dotinabox: Thank you!

adel & elaine: I am pursing my diploma from @sunrice.

The timing was right for me, that's why I decided to take the plunge. Do think through very carefully before making your decision, and do read up and do ample research.

WDA is offering a 90% subsidy for singaporeans and PR with a condition of 1 yr bond in the F&B industry. You should go check out their website if you are really keen.

Good luck!

Did you happen to find yummy Singapore hawker treats while travelling in Australia?

His Food Blog said...

Haha... I am surprised you asked... not yummy but something I found darn amusing... but that wld need some time before you get to read it..

Really running on a very tight schedule in school now... :(

I imagined these might be the things you'd miss most about Singapore.
Sambal chilli? Fried pork lard?

I do know a couple of vendors who bottle and sell chilli ;-)
