Thank You! Over 1K Subscribers on My Youtube Channel:)

My Youtube Channel has just got over 1K subscribers last month. I want to say a big "Thank You" for everyone's support!

I still remember my first video was uploaded back to Dec 2012. It's been a long time to grow because I only worked it in evenings and weekends. All my videos are based on our Chinese home cooking, most of them were I recorded in my parents' kitchen. Limited space and sometimes poor lighting as well. So it still has a lot to improve, but glad to see so many viewers liked them. I will continue to do more and better in the future.

You may check my Channel, share or leave your comments, thank you for the support! :)
