I won’t last a day without you…

Day after day, without fail, I would be here with something to share…or as far as circumstances would allow and in a blink of an eye, it has been three years since my very first post on 7th March, 2008.

Sometimes I wonder whether after 1,129 posts, I should carry on or perhaps, I should just call it a day. With over 28,000 comments, I must say that the figure is pretty encouraging – even though some days may be a bit slow but in general, each day, there would be around 20 people or more who care enough to take a trouble to drop a comment. That is the only motivation that keeps me going on as it serves to tell me that there are enough people who are still interested and needless to say, as the song goes, I won’t last a day without you…

However, I must say that 20 is really a small number out of the number of views I get per day – over 300 on the not-so-good days and some 500-600 on the busier ones.

Another thing that is holding me back is that once I stop, I will lose an invaluable avenue through which I could make some very wonderful friends. Undeniably, through blogging, I have made some of the best friends I’ve ever had here, there and everywhere and I would not want to lose that.

Whatever it is, three years have gone by…

Birthday cake

How long should I keep it going? Perhaps YOU have the answer?

  1. Carpenters… brings me back the memories… tsk tsk… I can’t believe I starred in TV Pendidikan when I was 9, dancing to ‘Top of The World’ in a red bird suit. TSK TSK TSK!!! I hope my mum and dad burn that bloody tape liao!!! I hate that to pieces… I looked so ridiculous, and the dance did not do that song any justice at all!

    Gosh! I wonder if it’s available on youtube? LOL!!! Would love to see Auntie Bird dancing…even though I can’t stand Top of the World – every school concert, must have one…and a karaoke overkill!

    1. =.= That bloody costume… so horrible…if I see the small version of myself in that again on the tape or anywhere else for that matter… I’d die out of shame! Thank God my time there was no youtube!!! The horror it would have been if I grew up in FB/youtube era!!! Cannot imagine my parents putting it up for ppl to ‘LIKE’ or blog about it. Damn, that’s what I call a blackmail material!

      U mentioned Carpenters, now oni I remember back those awful times…I really lupa liao…man… my parents ah… really make me swear off singing and the limelight…I din favour being in the spotlight is because of that awful Tv pendidikan! Sobs… dono why they so jahat last time… make me go act for tv pendidikan. *cries* Or all the things…wanna sumbat me act oso pls la… kasi lah… TV3 drama or advertisement or wud… not so horrible.

      God, wait til my kawans hear about this… they’d laugh til golek golek on the floor… dahlah their kids now call me Auntie Little Bird… ish ish ish!

      ps: Happy blog anniversary, by the way. ๐Ÿ˜€

      Thanks. Old baggage that you’ve been carrying all these years. Maybe you need to do it all again and this time, let loose and enjoy it…so as to get over the psychological scar.

  2. P.S Saw your comment on Claire blog… if wanna host a party to dance… dun lupa ajak me… very long I never go dancing liao…. I know how to Twist… *grinz* Grandpa taught me…(just no karaoke for me… later banjir… cuz my voice macam katak call the rain!)

    Ask Eugene. I’m all the way here…how to organise.

  3. My answer is … till our last breath!! hahahaa… yes, we must never stop, let our blogs be a memoir for our generations to come! Both u and i started almost the same time, me in January but never really active till later.. but of course, u have more fans-si than i do.. so… PLEASE DON’T STOP, MR. STP (not Mr. Postman by Carpenters?) lol…
    So 2nd April is the Rock n Roll night for us bloggers? in Penang or where? quick, organise it, STP!!

    Ok…ok…not stopping just yet. We’re in this together. Well, at least, you have the money…but not me. I have more fans? I wish they would post a comment or two sometimes – I need the moral support. As for the rock and roll night, you’ll have to ask Eugene. Anyway, if you’re in Penang, we can always go to Red Garden – they have dancing later in the night, around 10…oldies but goodies – songs like Oh Carol, Diana, Bee Gees, Lobo… LOL!! ;D

    1. Wonder Eugene will read our comments or not.. he will be dropping more hair soon.. lol..
      so u will be in penang 2nd April till ?? I can go on the 2nd but will come back 3rd.. anybody else???

      I’ll be going on the 1st, niece’s wedding on the 3rd night and will be flying home on the 4th – so free on the 2nd night. Eugene! Eugene! Penang Godfather! Where are you? ๐Ÿ˜€

      1. Lets get the ball rolling STP!! hehe… Red Garden or Hard Rock is fine with me.. hhhhuuuu…. Let’s jam!!

        Come one, come all…who’s in for the wildest party of the year? Muahahahaha!!!

  4. Congratulations! I thot it was just yesterday that yr blog had its anniversary! Time sure flies and please do not stop blogging for we do enjoy reading your blog, reading all yr comments and commenting as well :)! So do keep on running your fantastic blog from the Alpha to the Omega!! Have a kopi-O on me for keeping us so entertained all the time! Kopi Cheers!!!

    Yup…time flies and Sibu, being a small town, hasn’t got much to blog about. Well, maybe there is still a bit of this and a bit of that…and hopefully, I’ll have enough to keep going for a while.

  5. Happy blog anniversary!

    STOP?!! Better not kidding?!! Well, you may take a holiday or two, but definitely must keep your blog alive and kicking, keep your passion for food going!=)

    Thanks. I wish I could go into other things besides food though…but it seems that’s what everyone’s interested in and also, it is a safe topic – wouldn’t give rise to any unpleasant sentiments and arguments.

  6. Congrats Mr. STP on your blog anniversary. Your diligence in blogging every single day, sometimes twice a day, has been an inspiration to us that we should not slack in what we are doing. So thank you for being an encouragement to all of us.

    One thing for sure, all your readers are not ready for you to retire just yet. We want you to REFIRE. So keep it going. I need my daily dose of readings with correct grammar structures and your blog is one of those few that provides just that.

    We need writers like you to rise from our future generations.

    God bless.

    Thanks. Aha! A new commenter, just what I need. Thank for your compliments. Whoever you are, do keep dropping by – I won’t be going anywhere just yet. ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. You know what, it has been a great pleasure to know a Suituapui as you, and you are one of those bloggers that i know that are to me “sincere ” even in your blog as in person..

    Tina says,,,”Simply the best, better than……………..”please fill in the blanks”

  10. Congratulations to you for your 3 years of hardwork….thumbs up. Feels life has just started and I bet it is too early for you to call it a day. Agree with me?

    No way, you can stop MR. STP….hahahaha…

    Sincerely hope you will keep your fantastic blog alive and kicking.

    Thanks. Too early? Gosh…all those bloggers that were around when I started have called it a day butI guess I’ll keep going…for want of something better to do. LOL!!!

  11. the spirit of writing should never die. You should continue as many of your friends get updates about you from your blog.

    Providing them a service, eh? Ah well, as long as people don’t get bored and tired of this old man rattling on and on every day… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  12. don’t stop yet…as long as you have something to write…just keep on writing ๐Ÿ™‚

    As the song goes, “…here I’ll stay…until it’s time for me to go…” ๐Ÿ™‚

  13. Go on forever and ever !! ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve just started blogging 4 months ago, and seriously, I wonder if i can be like you 3 years down the road with consistent 1 or more posts a day! You’re my idol! XD

    And you’re my No. 1 fan! Muahahahaha!!!! The way you’re going – will be among the No. 1 Malaysian bloggers very soon!

    1. Hahahaha, I didn’t give you chocolates for that comment. Super sweet !! Hehe.

      Anyway really glad on your consistent contents. Love it! Every morning before driving to work, I’ll drop by your blog first. How’s that for being your #1 follower. LOL

      Ooooo…so sweet! Must be from eating all the chocolates! LOL!!! Must get you some more. ๐Ÿ˜€

  14. Such a heartwarming post! Of course you should not stop writing! It’s a gift! And having so many readers loving your work should motivation enough to keep you going, on and on and on… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yes…and I have not had the opportunity to meet you yet…and Saucer. Maybe after that, I’ll retire. LOL!! ๐Ÿ˜‰

  15. Happy Anniversary to you and me…3 years today I call NZ my home. Before that, Malaysia was just a pit stop as we were like nomads, living out of our luggage all over Asia! Never stop writing, Arthur..your blog is my poison!

    Oh? What a coincidence! The day you settled in NZ,I stared blogging. Interesting. Gosh…I’m poison – a bad influence, getting people to (cook and) eat and grow fat like me. LOL!!!

  16. Happy Birthday… to your blog..of course, you should carry on writing your blog.
    Nice blog that you have and always share good info about food and have lot of nice pics.

  19. oh…dont stop…. when am out of ideas what to cook.always go to check in your blog.

  22. why wanna stop?

    I enjoy reading your blog Sir.

    Brings fond memories of my childhood and schooling days back then in Sibu. I will always miss my hometown.

    Do hope you continue to blog. It has been a fabulous journey since following your blog!!

    Keep it up and god bless!!

    Ok…ok…with all the support I’m getting, I certainly will keep on going. Thanks, Rommel…

  23. CONGRATULATIONS on your blog’s 3rd anniversary!!! i must say that it’s really not an easy task to maintain your blog with a new post daily.. my blog is coming to 5 next week, and i think i just have as many posts as you, haha..

    well, i’ve been asking myself to do daily updates, but then i realise blog is to share and not to force yourself, that’s why i only write a post for few days or when i have idea nowadays.. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Wow! 5! You’re one of the longest around. Thanks for your wishes…

  24. I’m just glad I found your blog last year. Thanks for sharing, Arthur!

    Welcome. Glad to have you for company every day…or almost. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  25. happy 3rd anniversary STP! ๐Ÿ˜€ ppl love ur foodssss!! :p

    My Stories

    Thanks. Ya…that’s why most of my posts are on food – people do not seem so interested when they’re on other things. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

  26. Happy 3rd Anniversary to “Still Crazy After All These Years” and hope you’ll continue to “crazy”… ๐Ÿ™‚

    Yup…as crazy as can be! LOL!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

  27. Wow! Those statistics are amazing! Congratulations on your blog anniversary. I really salute you for having the diligence to blog on a daily basis…so much to share. One can always tell if a blogger is sincere and passionate or just blog for monetary reasons. Judging from your fans’ and friends’ comments, you can rest assured you firmly belong to the first category. Thanks and keep on blogging! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Thank you, thank you. I’m so flattered by your nice words and compliments… ๐Ÿ™‚

  28. Congratulations on the 3 years!

    One advantage of being slow to comment is I can look ahead to your “future” posts, LOL. I think you answered your own question with a small modification to today’s post “blogging is something to enjoy and when it spells w-o-r-k, it becomes a chore and Iโ€™m sure nobody likes chores.” Unless of course this has become a labour of love, in which case we will have many more years of STP adventures in culinary discovery!

    Thanks, Bob. Ya…that love element must be there in all that we do in order to sustain interest and keep us going. As far as my love for food is concerned, that certainly goes without saying – eternal, love that can never die. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  29. Rarely i do comment but just for once, I’m doing it to show my support. Go on blogging tiger.
    Your blog is definitely more interesting than the lots.

    Thanks, andie… That’s a very nice thing to say. ๐Ÿ˜‰
