It's November, and guess what that means? We're only a month away from the last month of the year. And that means that it's time for you to start voting in the CHENGDOO citylife Annual Readers' Poll. And why should I vote?, you ask. Well, not only is it good to support and recognize the local businesses that provide you with services and products that improve your city life, but also, as my father told me when I came of voting age: IT'S YOUR CIVIC DUTY.
If altruistic reasoning doesn't convince you, how about this?: Everyone who spares five minutes to fill out the survey will be entered into a random drawing for a chance to win one of more than 25 fantastic prizes donated by local businesses. Prizes include a car rental, Italian shoes, wine, coffee, entrance tickets, lunches, dinners, and thousands of RMB in food and beverage vouchers redeemable at some of Chengdu's most popular eateries.
Curious about who won in years past? Here's a summary:
As you can see, many of the same venues have won two years in a row. Will you make it a third? Only you have the power to crown the 2009 winners!
