(The) Not Extraordinary Story


I used to think that blogging was for people with too much time on their hands.  But now, I don’t :) .

In a real sense, blogging is good for your life.

Most people know the basic benefits of blogging:

  • you can make more connections,
  • you can make an exploration of the world,
  • you can become part of a community,
  • you can learn something new.

But for me, blogging is an online record of your life. You are post thing that you are thinking about and that interest you.

This is the place you express your thoughts and feelings, you share you ideas and knowledge with others.

The most important thing is to be honest and write about what matters.

If other people find your blog and enjoy reading about your life, that’s fine.

If it’s just a journal or diary to keep a record of your thoughts for your future reference, that’s fine too.

This blog is a photo oriented blog that focuses on me in general and food :) .

This is also a place where I express myself to my handsome man or to those who might stop by to read what I post :) .

I will say what I really feel and what I really think and leave it at that.  Enough for the intro. Now on to the meat of today’s entry.

When I thought about what I wanted to name my blog, the name gemuk came to me instantly. It’s an easy name to remember and related to a person I love so much.

The word Gemuk come from Malay language means fat. Gemuk carry a sense of cute name that I find appealing :)

Some girls love to call their boyfriend with cute nicknames like snuggleable, cuddles, cuddly bear or honey bear but I like to call my man Gemuk.

But he is not fat. LOL.

This is a cute pet name to tell him that I love to be close to him all the time.

And it’s also a pet name for one homeless cat I’ve adopted.

The cat is a  fat cat.

Well, maybe this picture will help you to understand why I call my blog what I do.
