I do get this question quite often, so thought of just creating a blogpost! ❤️
Why did I create it?
I used to get DM’s, emails or comments every other day from my followers stating how they wished they were in my shoes or requests to be my +1 for tastings and me, sitting on the other end of my phone/laptop only wanted to make their wishes come true. Thus, I decided to start these tours.
I’m trying to now create a community versus an ordinary blog you follow.
The first set of tours were dedicated to Sushi since I noticed tons of my followers disliked it with a passion. My only criteria for the Sushi Tour was, the majority of the followers I choose, already strongly dislike sushi or haven’t ever tried it. My aim was to change their mind, and so I did.
I would’ve had several more tours every other week, but I work full-time. Thus, please be patient ❤️ I promise there will be more tours! 😀 Additionally, if you have any suggestions/tips/advice on what I could do for my future tours, feel free to email me!
How to be a part of it?
There’s only one-way. I randomly put a post like the below announcing I have a tour coming up and then whoever wants to be a part of it can just comment on the post. After 2 weeks, I randomly choose between 5 to 15 people to eat with me (#EatWithN)!

Who do I usually choose and what’s the criteria?
- Over 80% of the people I choose are the ones that don’t blog since I do want them to experience how this whole blogging world is! 🌎 However, I do even choose budding and already-established bloggers.
- I request private accounts to go public a week or a few days before I announce the winners… for 2 reasons. Firstly, I’ve had people who don’t look the same (as their display picture) or their usernames classify them as females, but in reality, they’re males (and vice versa). Secondly, these tours are specifically for my community, only! I receive so much love from you guys and this is one way I can give back and meet you all. I’ve had 2-3 people who I’ve chosen before because of their participation and then I find out they don’t even follow me… 😑 So, I can only check if you’re following me if your account is public 😊
- I do not choose the same person twice
