Are you constantly on the hunt for new excitement in life? Do you have an antsy desire to discover something a little more off-the-beaten path? Is it true that you have a weakness for food and travel? Then you’ll feel right at home here!
Launched in 2013, For Two, Please is a hub for young adventurous adults who want to enrich their lives and broaden their horizons. This is a place where you can find:
- Restaurant reviews & recommendations (primarily in, but not limited to, the Calgary area)
- Foodie events (e.g., food-related festivals, restaurant launches, media events, etc.)
- Travel stories
- Trip-planning tips, advice and resources
- Hotel reviews
At For Two, Please, I strive to foster a trusting community that promotes integrity, openness and honesty. That means you can expect brutally honest and straightforward reviews from me. If a dish tastes bad, I’ll say it’s bad, it makes absolutely no difference if it’s prepared by celebrity chefs or roadside vendors. I also believe you deserve happiness and should live life to the fullest, that’s why I’m determined to inspire you to uncover the (relatively) unexplored destinations and give you the tools to explore the world. After all, you only live once!
So… Who is the mastermind behind For Two, Please?
Hi! I am Cat, a Taiwanese girl, who, not too long ago, left my career in a top global consulting firm and moved to Calgary to start a new life. At that time, I felt lost in life and realized how little thought I had given to what I am truly passionate about. With the help of my husband, Kev, and because of my enthusiasm for travel, food and photography, For Two, Please was born. Quickly it has become my new obsession in life.
Throughout my life, I’ve visited and lived in many cities in the world. I’ve spent: 10 years in Penang, 4 years in Vancouver, 2 years in Taipei, and 1.5 years in New York City. Not to mention my frequent travels back to Taiwan (my home country) and past visits to exciting destinations, such as Palau, Okinawa, Seoul, Palawan, Bangkok, Seattle, Boston, Orlando and many more. The list will never stop growing in the years ahead. Only now that I get to create precious memories with the love of my life!
If there’s one thing I’ve learned through travel, it’s to keep an open-mind. That means, being aware of the world around us, being kind and respectful of those who are different from us, and staying curious and pushing ourselves to try new things. I never once thought I would pick up scuba diving and have the chance to dive in one of the most beautiful islands in the world, or join a local for a home-cooked meal on our trip to Seoul – but I did! With this adventurous spirit, you can expect to find once-in-a-lifetime, wild experience on the blog, which will hopefully unlock the hero inside you.
Along with travel, I have become fascinated with various cuisines around the world and developed a (somewhat) refined palate. Many say that food-tasting is subjective – I agree, but I also believe that we should not settle for the “just good enough.” On the blog, I help you distinguish the best from the bad, so that you don’t have to go through the pain of eating inauthentic, bad-tasting food. Life is too short and you deserve the best.
