200 Not Out

This is my blog's 200th post. It's taken a little over two years to reach this milestone, during which time it has featured:

96 places to eat in London
89 posts tagged with noodles
49 posts on my travels
38 Chinese restaurants in London
12 countries
8 recipes

You can tell a lot from numbers. From the above, you can probably guess that I live in London, like Chinese food (especially noodles) and travel a fair bit. Oh, and that I really ought to cook more!

I must confess I'm finding blogging harder than I used to. After all, it's taken longer to write the second century of posts than the first. But that's not to say I'm giving up on the blog, it's just that I'm slowing down. I hope you understand.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to say thanks to all my readers. In particular, those of you who have left comments - I'm not sure I would've made it to 200 posts without your support.


  1. Congrats on 200 post! There should be a celebration on the no. 100 post of 'places to eat in London'!

  2. That is pretty impressive and kinda scary how much time goes into these things...

    Congrats. Here's to more countries and noodles

  3. That is a great milestone. Keep it up, your readers, of which I'm very happy to be one, enjoy it!

  4. I don't mind a slow down. Just don't stop. Hopefully all it will take is a GREAT bowl of noodles and you'll be back as strong as ever!

    Thanks for all your hard work. It is greatly appreciated by a person trapped in a bit of a boring job.


  5. Hey congrats on your 200th post! I just crossed that milestone as well. And I'm with Frank. Slow is ok. Good posts need noodling time, after all! Just don't stop.


  6. Thanks, everybody!

    Kay - Not quite 100 posts on London eats, as some posts feature more than one joint. But yes, I think restaurant No.100 deserves some special attention!

    Tom - It's the food on my travels that keeps this blog alive!

    Kavey - I'm going to take a leaf out of your book, and broaden the blog's outlook over the next 100 posts!

    Frank - my pleasure. Have you thought of taking up blogging yourself? Might soothe the pain of work.

    Wen - where did the time go? Congrats too on your 200 up!

  7. Mr Noodles - Is this a cricket analogy? In which case you must remember that the humble Brits are whipping the Aussies at the moment! I love reading your posts and hope the enthusiasm remains. Keep it up as long as you enjoy it - it should be about what you want. We will all keep reading!

  8. GChick - it most certainly is! I'm excited at some of the stuff that I'm going to be blogging about.

  9. 200! well done Mr. Noodles! Another 200 to go, I am patient :) Hope to see you soon for some noodle outing, sad I missed the dim sum one.

  10. Ute - thanks! We must definitely catch-up sometime over lunch or dinner!

  11. Oh, I'm so behind on the internet. Congratulations! Love the cricket reference too.

  12. What about the impact on your gut??!
