2010 has been an especially awesome year for this little site. In the past month Sparklette saw some great momentum, maintaining a consistent daily traffic of 7,000, and exceeding 9,000 visitors on certain days. Now that’s a new record, all thanks to you sweet readers!
It takes plenty of resources to continually bring you fresh content, restaurant reviews and contest giveaways. This would not be possible without the following companies and friends that support Sparklette.
I would like to thank all valued sponsors and partners for the month of November 2010, and tell you a little about their background. Please support them by checking out their websites, products and services.
Hotel Re! is a modern retro-themed boutique hotel perched on Pearl’s Hill. Their rooms feature the pop culture of the 60’s and the 70’s, decorated with eclectic motifs of stars like Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe. Re!Fill, the hotel’s flagship restaurant serves daily themed set meals that I personally love and have highly recommended even before they became a sponsor.
This December, they are offering a great festive set meal at $23.80++ that includes the very juicy grilled beef tenderloin with foie gras red wine sauce pictured above.

Book your holiday accommodation online with Agoda, a website that I use to make all my hotel reservations. They have built us a nice hotel search engine on Sparklette so you and I can all find a hotel easily and conveniently from here.
Without Saad Kamal‘s generous hosting and tireless support (once, he even got up at 3am to help me get the site up), there would be no site here. Saad is an internet marketing expert who shares various tips on search marketing and social media on his website. It’s been an absolute privilege learning from him personally. And trust me, I have learned loads.
Follow Saad Kamal on Twitter.
I would also like to give a shout out to Joyce, Jasper and Razlan for contributing excellent content to Sparklette. Write to us if you would like to guest blog on Sparklette and be read by thousands of readers.
