Goodbye Leng Mou
The coming Tuesday will be the day it all begins.
I've had months and months of planning but all the planning in the world will never be enough to fully prepare me for the challenge I'm about to face starting 8.30am on Thursday.
Yet, before I move on this very uncertain and risky part of my life, it is only natural for me to think again about the life I am leaving behind.
I remember London.
I remember my university and the little internet venture I was a part of while still a student.
Yet, many of you may not realize it but each and every one of you who read this post now were a big part of the final year of my university life.
What began as a blog between two best friends grew beyond our wildest expectations. In less than 9 months, Leng Mou broke record after record for the highest average visits each day reaching a peak of an average of 1500 visits each day.
It was unreal.
Friends of mine tell me that they wish they had a blog that had the attention of so many eyes from London to Malaysia like we did. Little did they know that I had always quietly envied them for their smaller but more personal blogs.
From day one, blogs that are much less quiet have always caught my attention. I've fallen in love with the way these bloggers write that are honest to the bone and how they always attend to each and every comment they get on their blog. It makes me feel as if each blog entry was written just for my eyes.
Yet, the modest popularity Leng Mou had its plus points. I have grown everlastingly attached to the many readers we have. Some which often love to voice out comments and even the more silent participants that I know are there every time I check the statcounter.
The part that saddens me about shutting down Leng Mou is the reality that no longer will I be able to wake up each morning and look forward to reading the often hilarious comments of people like Jackson, Lance, Adrianbaby, Cely, Koyuuken, Jason, Gwenneth and Alynna (if I've left out anyone, please forgive me but rest assured I will always be grateful for all that you have shared with me).
Should any of you miss any part of me, feel free to pay me a visit some time at my new personal blog that I hope will be just like the personal blogs I love reading every day.
I can't promise you that it will be funny like this one, but I can say that I will most probably be able to reply each and every one of your comments in that small blog I will finally have.
Boss Lepton on the other hand has stopped blogging for good so I doubt you'll be able to catch him on the blogosphere anymore.
(But the good news is that you'll probably still be able to catch us both at the Blogger's Meet on the 29th of July at KLCC).
To all of you Leng Mou readers out there, thank you for giving Boss Lepton and I the best 8 months of our lives.
If you could only feel for a day what you've all done for the both of us... then perhaps you would realize how grateful we are for your support.
May others do unto you what you have done unto us.This is Boss Stewie, saying my very last goodbye to all of you at Leng Mou.
