Readers! I have just been shortlisted for the opportunity of a lifetime, the chance to go to Richmond on the West Coast of Canada for a year, and write about the food there every day. I would be housed, paid and I would be in Canada, a country that I have visited several times, and will visit again next week – *waves at Montreal*. Rumoured to have some of the best Asian food outside of Asia, amongst many other lovely things, I would absolutely love it.
Yes, I know, I have been very lucky. 1500 applied, and I am in the final 12. But, those Canucks have the edge on me, for I have little votes. So, please, take a minute and click VOTE on Facebook. That is all you have to do. You can vote once a day until May 1st when the competition closes. Then it is on to the final leg.
Why? Well, did I mention that I would get to live in Richmond in Canada for a bit? And think of all that great content, the chance to explore an entirely new place, the huge adventure. Think of all of the inspiration from the hundreds of restaurants I will visit. Then there is all of the time that I will have to cook and all the recipes I will be able to share with you. I might even get to start my second book! It would be a dream come true, in truth.
So please, help a gal out, and help send me to Richmond. I promise I will come back at the end of it :)
