I can’t contain myself. A friend of mine, Marian Bacol-Uba has been selected as one of the 5 finalists for Pei Wei’s Blog Asia competition, something I myself entered at the persuasion of another friend. I am so happy Marian got so far and now, we need to help her win it!
Not only was Marian selected out of hundreds of entries but she is the only finalist from California. The winner will travel with the Pei Wei team to 5 countries in Asia, including my place of birth, Hong Kong and spend two weeks, traveling, eating and most importantly, BLOGGING about it.
Marian is a blogger extraordinaire. She’s an elite Yelper, her blog Marian The Foodie is a cornucopia of her food adventures which also includes lots of videos. She hosts her own YouTube channel

Why do I think Marian is the perfect candidate for this? Well, she’s studied and lived abroad in Singapore and Shanghai, China when she was in college. She’s traveled extensively to Thailand, Malaysia, Philippines, Hong Kong and different parts of China.
I know for a fact that she’s very adventurous when it comes to food. Like me, she’s tried so many unique type of food and drinks — she’s even had snake shots (which I haven’t!) to fried bugs.
Marian is extremely outgoing, very attractive so will look awesome on camera and she’s also adventurous in other areas as well. She’s a certified for open water scuba diving, she’s rock climbed on Koh Phi Phi, Thailand, and backpack in Phuket. She won’t say no to trying new things.

So as a friend, a fellow blogger, and someone who knows she will be PERFECT for this, I want to help her along. You can help me, help Marian win this by going to Pei Wei’s Facebook page and leaving a comment as to why Marian is the one to win this!
Come on everyone! Let’s get this OC gal to the finish line!!!
This is amazing Anita. I love the site, plus your photography is impeccable; really brings the food to life. Enjoyed reading and look forward to more.
