Dear Veron,

I am totally impressed with your compilations of all things beautiful. You are truly awesome. Keep up your good work. I have always enjoyed reading your emails and just wished I had subscribed to Sparklette sooner.

Thanks for the review that you have written on MetroCakes! It generated quite a bit of buzz and sales of our miniatures.

Reading Sparklette past 9 PM should be categorized as a sin. For I am human and have no power against the goodness it delivers.

Veron, you are an absolutely fabulous writer!! I have already read your reviews before heading off to any new restaurant I want to try out …. and sure as anything, I’m thinking of exactly the same things you observed during your visit there!!

Anyway – love your pictures, detailed reviews and most of all the attitude of this website! You should really start a daily column in the newspapers … Seriously!

I stumbled across your blog months ago, and well you have my word that I was hooked on since then. Reading your posts have been a little ritual for me every single time I surf the internet. And I don’t actually live in Singapore, I’m an Indonesian.

And when I visited Singapore about 2 weeks ago, your recommendations have been sort of my bible or guidance of unusual and superb delicacies. Thanks for every and each of your posts, Veron! That was pretty much my best trip to Singapore, thanks to you.

Your blog really amazes me, not for anything but for the quality of your reviews, and maintaining them refined even if your writing style is so casual and sporadic.

We leave for Siem Reap & Saigon in 2 weeks. As I was checking out feedback / reviews on hotels & places to go to at night for dinner & drinks I happen to stumble on your blog. After seeing more than 2 dozen write-ups about Siem Reap/Angkor Wat etc., I find your blog to be the most descriptive, animated & informative. Fantastic pics too!

Thank you for such an informative, entertaining & pretty blog! I’m looking forward to reading more about your travels.

I have been a follower of your blog since 2006. When I first came in, it was the design of your page that caught my attention. Eventually, it became the food reviews that kept me coming back. My family use your blog as a guide for our weekend dinners.

I love your food photos and those little chicken drumsticks that you use as ratings! Cute! I get hungry whenever I visit your site haha. It’s so interesting to read up about life and food in Singapore!

Look forward to more culinary adventures!

I stumbled upon your blog purely by coincidence one day and I kind of got hooked to reading your entry. I must admit that I like your food, drink and chillout outlet reviews. Being a person that I who usually hardly have the time to check out such places due to work, I now refer to your blog as a guide on the latest updates of places to check out. It’s no longer the same old same old cafes again all thanks to you.
