Where Are You?

by Marketman

The last time I asked this question was late in 2005, when this blog was just about to turn 1 year old, and when the readership was probably 1/10th of what it is today. In the first year of the blog, it received roughly 2,000 comments, many from readers who still seem to be around today! But Marketmanila.com has grown and today the blog gets some 2,000 comments a MONTH, instead of a year. I went back and eyeballed the folks who responded to this question the last time, and roughly 30-40% of them still comment on the blog today… talk about loyalists! :) At any rate, whenever I get a comment, I am always a bit curious where the reader is logging in from. And I am sure other commenters are thinking the same thing. And because there are so many commenters these days, I sometimes lose track of their locations even if they have mentioned it to me once or twice before. So I thought it might be nice to as the “Where Are You??” question again, so everyone has a chance to “locate” themselves for the benefit of other readers…

While I am aware that a huge number of you are in Metro Manila and scattered all over the United States, I also know there are readers in Ireland, Sweden, England, Portugal, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, South Africa, India, The Maldives, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, Japan, Canada, Mexico, Jamaica, Turks & Caicos and Brazil. There are folks in Davao, Zamboanga, Cebu, Bohol, Iloilo, Bacolod, Leyte, Sorsogon, Baguio, Dagupan, etc. as well. So please, if you are inclined, and equally curious, kindly leave a comment and the city/country where you are based or logging onto the website from. Thanks! And folks who did this 2.5 years ago, if you are still around, you all get Marketman’s special “suki” award… thanks for sticking around and being a part of marketmanila! :)

  17. Chris says:

    Q.C. still. There is another Chris (or there could be several?) who leaves comments here and in other food blogs. The comments and grammar seem sane and sound naman so I don’t mind sharing my name, heheh. The name’s pretty common anyway and I don’t have a monopoly over it. Although the blog owners can identify me by my my email address, the other readers do not, so perhaps I should use ChrisB from now on. This is the Chris who attended the 1st and 2nd EBs =)

    I married a Filipina over 32 years ago in Makati which means I have a large extended family living in many Philippine locations but mostly in Makati.

I have read your blog most days for the past 9 months!

I’ve traveled to a lot of the same places you have (in Europe) and enjoy recreating the memorable dishes from these trips at home. Inevitably, however, I end up craving the filipino food that I loved growing up, so your site gives me the best of both!

    Started to read two years ago while I was still working in Singapore and brought back the habit when I joined hubby in Bacolod City, Negros Occidental (which, by the way is ranked #1 by Moneysense as the best place to live in the Philippines and I agree :P). I still visit my hometown of Jaro, Iloilo City occasionally.
