Favourite Places – Vancouver – Cafe Zen

I lived near Kits Beach for many years. Kitsilano is located in Vancouver, BC, Canada. It is a lovely community that is just minutes from the big city downtown hustle and bustle.

Across the street from where I lived a few years back, was a great little restaurant called Cafe Zen. I was a regular there. So being in Vancouver and having successfully avoided the ferry breakfast, I stopped in at my old “haunt”. I was happy to see that it still exists.

It hasn’t changed a bit. The food is still incredible and wonderful. Nice to see that some places never change. It always had great service (still does) and great quality (never had a bad meal there).

I had my breakfast, sat and enjoyed my tea, and wrote this post. Relaxed and looking forward to the rest of my day…

No matter how you look at it Cafe Zen is delicious!

My latest instalment of life is in need of your help. Nothing major, I just need you to vote for my new documentary. The voting site will be available on Monday July 30th. Starting at noon, you can visit the site to cast your vote and if I get a good turnout, Telus (Storyhive) will award my project with a $50,000 grant!

Fifty thousand dollars sounds like a lot but to produce a real documentary with a real crew and real promotion, it’s pretty much just a great start. Telus will also assist my production with mentoring and other support.

I will share more of the documentary’s content soon. All the details are on the voting web site. Which will be available Monday, July 30, 2018 at 12 noon PDT. I will share that URL when it is time. I really do not want to have a lot of false starts as you will just find nothing at the link.

I have produced over 80 episodes of TV content, and have worked on countless numbers of documentary, training, and film scripts in the past 15 years. I can do this. You’ll be proud of this one. But the only way I can receive the documentary grant is via the voting process outlined by Telusfund. No other way. Please… take a few minutes out next week to help me out. It not only helps me, it helps the many other new motion picture people out there. This project will help over 20 other people get their names in the credits via this documentary grant!   Contact me if you need more info or want the ‘hidden’ link in advance to put in your reminders list.

More later… Martin
