Well… not so fast. First I’d like to thank all voters who participating in our 2010 food budget poll. Especially thanks to Lululu, Wasabi Prime and TR from Kitchen-OCD who kindly left their comments and gave their supports throughout the year. For other voters who I didn’t write your name here, please don’t be jealous. I’d like to offer you special thanks too. I just don’t know who you are because all votes are anonymous.
Our 2010 food budget poll is a success. We received more votes than I previously anticipated. Although we didn’t get as many votes as the lame, ugly stepsister show “Canadian Idol” did, I’m very proud to see that there are plenty readers out there who actually read my stories and care enough to voice their opinions.
This poll is such an eye opener to me. I now realize what most my readers wants. It was mind-boggling to learn that only 3% of the readers wanted me to “Live like Scrooge.” (THANK YOU!) Moreover, “the Live a little” and “Live it up a notch” were neck and neck in the poll. The winning category managed to edge out the second place by a small margin. Without further ado, the Cheap Appetite 2010 food budget is… (DRUM ROLLS) …LIVE A LITTLE! ($350 a year.) Congratulations to those who got their wishes.
For those of you who voted for the “$300“ or “$400” budget, tough luck! You should’ve voted more. JUST KIDDING:) Please don’t be disappointed. I will try my best to include your wishes in the future stories.
At the bottom of each new stories, I will give you the breakdown of our Cheap Appetite 2010 food budget so you can track it along with me. I hope you will enjoy my new adventures in 2010. I look forward to sharing my delicious meals and new discoveries with you. Have a Happy New Year everyone!
Enjoy and Cheap Appétit.
