I was ecstatic to say the least when I noticed some traffic referral coming in from 9Rules blog. Then I remembered that I had submitted this blog for consideration into the 9Rules community during the 24 hour submission period sometime early this month. You see, 9Rules is an exclusive blogging network which only accepts blogs which are of certain (high!) qualities – 9 to be exact. When it dawned on me that this blog has been accepted into this network, you can’t imagine how elated I was (not also to mention that this morning, the feed subscribers have shown an all time high of 422 readers – if you have not subscribed, I urge you to do so. It’s free). Despite the current round of acceptance, there are only 7 Malaysian sites in this network including mine and Hochiak is the only food-related site.

So, what will happen to Hochiak! Delicious Asian Food since it is now admitted into 9Rules? As quality is in essence, you should expect higher quality posts (especially photos) to be featured. You will also notice the beautiful 9Rules leaf logo on this site. Notwithstanding the promotion into 9Rules, I will still remain as friendly as ever to you – my readers. Afterall, it’s your repeat visits which make this venture truly meaningful and exciting.

For those of you who have just arrived here from 9Rules, a big warm welcome to you and I do hope you will feel free to surf around for some useful and delicious asian recipes.

    I have been visiting your site for nearly two years now. Your recipes have been saviours. The last one I made was porkleg hoisin stew and you are right, it yummy. The kids loved it. Check out my new blog if you can. It is only a few days old.
