Eating my way through Richmond, British Columbia

Horn tooting. Self-promotion. Or the new humblebrag. Whatever you want to call it, it’s not something that comes easily to me. But it’s something I have to become better at, especially when I’m responsible for my own promotional purposes. Between being an entrepreneur with Food Bloggers of Canada and a freelance writer, I’ve learned that you better be ready to put yourself “out there” and let people know what you’re up to and open for business.

Last year, I wrote for Tourism Richmond who were in the process of re-launching their 365 Days of Dining website and looking for some new content to compliment what was already on the site. I was willing and able to take on a mission to explore Richmond, BC and everything it had to offer. With one of the largest Asian populations outside of Asia, the cuisine was right up my alley!
