Happy first birthday Hey, It's Alyssa Yu!

I can't believe it's been a year since I started this blog. Looking back, I barely recognize this quiet girl who only kept to herself, too embarrassed to tell the world who she was and what she was capable of. I admit that there had been so many changes in my life and this blog helped me to improve and change for the better. This blog means a lot to me and this is why I'm celebrating my blog's first year in the online world! :)

There are so many things I have to be thankful for. I wouldn't be in this place without my readers who give me constant inspiration to keep posting in this blog. I want to thank my boyfriend, Ryan, for being ever so patient with me especially if I have to tell everyone to stop and pause at the most inconvenient of situations just so I can take a picture of it, and for the endless suggestions he gave me to improve this blog; to my sister, Via who I always ask to proofread my blog posts (I was never that good in grammar) and the one I turn to for help every time I have to choose one picture over another; and to my friends who supported me all the way (shout out to Phya, Fran, Marianne and Cindylene!) I experienced so many ups and downs- there was even a point when I wanted to shut down this blog because I thought that this was not going to be long term. But hey, people sacrifice for the things they love doing. And blogging is definitely one of mine.

Thank you so much to my followers and for all the comments you left on my posts. Thanks to my sponsors- Fab Manila, Feet for a Queen and Twinkies Inc.. I never expected that my blog will be this successful and to tell you the truth, that it will last this long.  I learned so much from this experience and I wouldn't be here without all of you. Again, thank you! :)

We tried the Peanut Butter Brookie but ate it all up on our way home. We also ordered the Valrhona Flourless Choco Cupcake (my favorite!) but the photo didn't do justice to it so never mind, haha.
