Finally! 50 posts in 50 days is now COMPLETE.
I apologize for going radio silent right after finishing the posts. I think I really really needed the break.
It's quite a lot of pressure knowing every night you have to write and publish yet another blog post. I had thought that with the added pressure of having to post every day I would somehow simplify the nature of my posts. It turned out I wasn't really able to change my style. Instead, perhaps posts had more typos than normal (I tried my best to fix them the next morning), and some posts weren't given quite the love and care I would give a normal post if I had more time.
In some ways, it felt like law school all over again (which I also did at night while holding a full time job). In law school, I was always distinctly aware of the fact that I should be studying. It was always hanging over your head. I never felt like I could truly just relax. Similarly, knowing I had to post something also hung over my head, though I tried my best not to let it interfere with any of my other activities (heh, except perhaps with my quantity of sleep).
We now go back to our regularly scheduled program. The holidays might be a bit choppy, but come the new year, I still have lots of stuff to share with you all. Surprisingly, I still have about 20 Hong Kong restaurants in the queue (that continues to keep growing, but I'll try to keep better check of it), as well as trips to Chengdu (Sichuan Province), Singapore, and Macau!
Only a few more days until Christmas!
