Fan mail

Hurry up the Cakes is BACK from Singapore! I know I promised bite-sized updates via my Twitter (@mikeyllorin), but too many things happened over in Singapore, and we hadn’t enough time. Still, follow me anyway.

But now, here I am, tired, full, and happy. It had been a hell of a trip, so expect big posts in the coming days. Mostly about food.

In the meantime, I leave you with this. My iPad was hijacked at some point in the four days we were there, and I found two mysterious letters on my Notes app. I presume they were from fans of Hurry up the Cakes.

The Soderno Report – Friday, February 17, 2012

Every so often, Team Hurry up the Cakes ventures off to the mostly-first-class land of Fort Bonifacio, Taguig, our old  stomping grounds in Alabang, Muntinlupa, to partake in the weekly celebration of gluttony, revelry, and sheer hedonism that is the Midnight Mercato Soderno food fair.

Too many times, people start new blogs with blog posts declaring that they just started a blog. Too many times, people promise to remain faithful to blogging, unlike in their fifteen previous attempts. Too many times, people vomit write blog posts a mile a minute for the first month, and then slowly fizzle out as the weeks go by.

…I will (continue to) do whatever I feel like doing, and if that happens to be writing for Hurry up the Cakes, then so be it.

(I really really want to promise, though. But I can’t. So I won’t.)

I don’t want to wish for this site to be life-changing, inspiring, or even mildly entertaining. If there’s anything I wish for this site to be, it’s that it be regularly updated. Considering the author, though, I’m not sure that’s very likely.
