Winnipeg!! Beat the summer heat with Panda Tea!

But first let’s talk about the spot! The smell, the music, the atmosphere is calm and relaxing. The tea shop is very cosy and quaint!

I’ve never seen this of a small bubble tea cafe style spot with no line. Customer line up is often right to the door. I’ve order many things from the menu and haven’t found one I didn’t like yet.

Panda Tea have what I was searching for here in Winnipeg. Their menu had endless choices of bubble milk teas, bubble tea slush and bubble tea yakult! Customers have the option of sugar and ice levels of their choice. We are also able to choose various toppings to go into the drinks.

The presentation of the deserts is quite elegant; however, the deserts themselves are overpriced, and could do with more flavouring

One time I bought a custard desert from Panda Tea.  The custard container was quite nice, but the custard itself is almost flavourless, but the texture was perfect for my taste.  Additionally, I am shocked at how much the desert cost, especially for the small size.  I would expect something much bigger, for the same price.

When you compare it to other places, like Asia City’s bubble tea which tastes more of an artificial flavour. Rather than at Panda Tea where you can taste that hint of tea in the slushes that it should have in it, hence “bubble tea”. I love! love! love! the taste of their bubbles, sago and other toppings they offer.

Let’s face it: You can’t beat the summer heat with just water. So why not visit Panda tea. 

Enjoy!

The Strong Badger supports and is supported by the local community in ways that make it much more than just a sum of its parts. There is a communal spiritual magic that is alive and happens every-time a customer, a friend, or a passerby asking for directions walks in that door and is hit with the local charm and heady smells of fresh coffees and pastries and to me, that is why I think The Strong Badger Coffee House is Winnipeg’s best coffee shop.

From reinvented diner meals to refined plates made from Canadian ingredients, here are 5 delicious ways to experience the change.

 

  1. Bindy’s Caribbean Delights– If you are at The Forks Market and craving a flavourful roti as big as a football look no further. They make their own roti shell, their tamarind sauce is nice and tangy, and if you like spicy be sure to try their pepper sauce. With many curried potato and chickpea items Bindy’s is a great choice for vegans, while it’s also one of the few places in the city where you can get a nice goat curry. The price is very reasonable. The portion is huge and the people who work there are so efficient and friendly.

 

2. Fergie’s Fish and Chips– At Fergie’s the batter is as crisp while the steamed fish inside is moist. They have been open since 2004, and are located in The Forks Market. Their crisp chips, creamy tartar sauce, and cream-based chowder bring in the line ups every lunch hour. The quality vs the small price you pay is outstanding! If your dining at The Forks, you won’t regret coming here.

 

3. KYU Grill- Here you will find the best heroshimas in the world, this two-time winner of ManyFest’s Food Truck Wars, have brought their famous heroshimas to the market! These hot dog-like creations are saucy, and overloaded with things such as nori, fried panko, scallions, and many more. You can choose from 6 different bases including pork belly, chicken and tofu. If you’re not interested in that, they also serve Japanese curries, spicy pulled pork poutine on fat crispy fries, udon bowls, and more! When dining at The Forks you are sure you find something to suit your desires!

 

4. Nuburger- Tasty, beautiful, exciting and awesomely messy, Nuburger has won Le Burger Week every year it has been held in Winnipeg. Their delicious burgers are made from free-range and grass-fed meat. They have a massive variety of beef, chicken, and veggie burgers, including the winners, the Shang-Awesome, Summer Breeze, and The Stamos. There burgers are piled high with ingredients like grilled pineapple, aioli, and local cheeses from Bothwell. It is highly recommended for carnivores and vegetarians alike.

 

5. Tall Grass Prairie- They are incredibly knowledgeable about food production and supporting farmers, and it is simply one of the best bakeries in Winnipeg. If you enjoy baked goods made from quality ingredients, you have to stop at Tall Grass and pick up a treat. Some of my favourites are the cinnamon buns and their bannock with jam. It is a lovely bakery where you can also get loafs of bread, granola, sweets, and more, and they have gluten free options!

The Forks is not just the best place to eat in Winnipeg, it is also one of the greatest attractions we have. You can enjoy a beautiful stroll by the river, go on ferry rides, ice skate in the winter, they have a wonderful playground for children, and so much more!

WAYS TO TRAVEL STRESS-FREE

“This is for educational purposes only. The author is a student at Robertson College and is submitting this practice blog post as coursework in their program. We are not affiliated with any businesses mentioned in this post and the information herein is purely fictitious, being used only as an example for our Digital Marketing training.”

Travelling is definitely one of the most stressful experience in our lives as it is both uncomfortable and tiring. There are lots of stressful experience that will occur while travelling such as unwanted walking, awkward talking, uncomfortable naps, airplane sickness, and many more that may possibly occur. Here are some of the list that might actually just help you to travel stress-free:

LESS LUGGAGE LESS STRESS

safe, comfortable, travel, tips, less luggage, less stress
Luggage full and ready to travel/ source: http://www.travelsupermarket.com

Bringing all the things that you think you need may not exactly be helpful as much as it seems to be. Some people just cant go out of their house without bringing all the things they could possibly can. Most first time travelers tend to bring a lot of unnecessary things on their trip because they are worried that they might need those things in case of emergency. Some people don’t even have time to organize their stuff so they would just bring whatever they can and put it directly to their luggage.

Tip: Bring only the things that you need and make sure you organize it properly and we can guarantee you a more comfortable and less stressful travel.

SMILE TO TRAVEL WITH STYLE

TRAVEL WITH STYLE AND COMFORT/ source:https://www.pinterest.co.uk/explore/airport-outfits/

Who doesn’t want to look good while travelling?

No one, because everyone wants to look good and stylish while travelling as you may encounter a lot of different people, or you might just meet your future wife or husband, and you might also bump into one of your childhood sweethearts, or run into one the most famous celebrities so you have to make sure you’re in style. Its really hard to be comfortable and stylish at the same time but trust me you can never look good without comfort and little bit of confidence.

Tip: You just have to make sure that you wear something comfortable because flights are really tiring and stressful and you may want to wear clothing that are comfortable where you can move around properly and still look good. Its very hard to put on a smile when you’re uncomfortable so be careful of outfits that you choose to wear when travelling because the most stylish thing you can wear is your smile and a little bit of confidence.

SAY HI AND PUT ON A SMILE

ask questions and say hi to people, for a stress-free travel more comfort and safe travel
SAY HI AND PUT ON A SMILE/ source:https://www.thoughtco.com/giving-directions-dialogues-1211331

A lot of people are afraid to approach other people because they are afraid or shy, especially those people who are travelling for the first time. It’s very difficult and critical to travel so it will be understandable to approach other people and as questions such as directions and information. There are different types of people in the airport that you can approach to ask questions and other information.

Tip: Don’t be afraid to ask questions and be approachable. Its important not to be shy and afraid to ask questions especially if you are a first time traveler. It does not hurt to ask many questions as much as you want as long as its appropriate and you don’t know what to do. You should know what you must know to have a comfortable and safe travel. You might also want to be approachable as there are other passengers just like you who are afraid to ask questions.

Who among us doesn’t like to shop for new hauls, right? But the thing is, not all of it will be used. You will probably wear those newly bought shirts and skirts for three times or even once then tuck it away again in your closet, then months or years after (yep), while cleaning your wardrobe, you will see a pile of neatly (maybe not?) folded clothes patiently waiting for you to be noticed.

A PLACE FOR DESSERTS IN WINNIPEG THAT YOU WILL SURELY LOVE…

Note: “This is for educational purposes only. The author is a student at Robertson College and is submitting this practice blog post as coursework in their program. We are not affiliated with any businesses mentioned in this post and the information herein is purely fictitious, being used only as an example for our Digital Marketing training.”

Who doesn’t love sweets?  

The sprinkles, icings, gooey chocolate sauce, caramel drizzles, roasted marshmallows on cupcakes? Oh my God! seriously? For me, having a love and appreciation for desserts it is a heaven!…

Recently, my husband and I decided to go for a lunch at the Indian restaurant in the downtown area. After we finished our lunch, we felt like we are craving for some desserts. However, we were a bit sceptical on going because we didn’t have any idea which places to go that offer best desserts in town. While searching for dessert shop, we found this local shop named Roll Cake Bakery and Desserts on Google with mouth watering pictures. I was hooked by the pictures and intrigued by their concept of the six senses. So I said, why not to try?

During our visit,  I was dazzled by the appearance of the store. It looks fresh, clean, bright and elegant. Aside from that, the choices of desserts are quite overwhelming. They have varieties of cakes, cupcakes, macaroons, truffles, cookie, waffles and are offered at a reasonable price depending on size and type of the dessert. As I mentioned earlier the six sense that intrigued me means that the store offer desserts focused on:

  • A fresh scent of cakes
  • Attractive looking
  • Delicate and moist in texture
  • A touch of sweetness

As the story goes,  I ordered 1 mocha cupcake and 6 pcs of macaroons in different flavours. The appearance of both desserts was nice and presentable. I love how they designed their cupcakes because it looks so special and how they match the macaroon colour to its flavour. The cupcake had a fresh scent of vanilla and squeezed lemon, while the texture was moist, spongy, smooth, and light.  The macaroons texture was crispy outside and soft when you bite. The sweetness of both desserts was just exact and not too overpoweringly sweet, just what I wanted!. Way back my college days, I remember when my sweet friend Joana used to bake cupcakes for me and this cupcake reminded me of her.  Here is the picture of what I had ordered…

The experience I had at Roll Cake Bakery and Desserts didn’t only satisfy my cravings but also brought back old sweet memories. I would highly suggest trying their cupcake as it’s really amazing and the customer service was excellent too. By the way, they also offer gluten-free, eggless, dairy-free cakes and products that do not contain nuts. If you want to know more about their products just click the red button below for more information.

Winnipeg Transit is the public transit agency in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada. It has been in operation for over 130 years and carries hundreds of passengers on a daily basis.

Since I have started school at Robertson College I have become a regular passenger of the City bus. I’ve learned a lot and one thing in particular is that the bus Driver needs to be acknowledged. I see many people walk past them without a look, a smile or a “hi”. Remember to bring your manners with you next time you ride the bus, and say “hi” to your bus Driver.

Image result for manners with cute animals
Good Manners to use while on the bus

Here is a very simple list that may help passengers to be more friendly:

  • When you enter the bus you can say – Good morning, hello, salutations, top of the day to ya, hello beautiful lady.
  • When you exit the bus you can Say – Thank you, have a nice day, good bye.

I apologize if my  list is too complicated. Here is another list that may help. If you love cute animals then click here to learn from our furry friends and see how they are doing it.

Luke Green 19, Drafted to the Winnipeg Jets

Luke Green at the 2016 NHL Draft
Winnipeg Jets Luke Green selected 79th overall in 2016 NHL Entry Draft

“ [The Winnipeg Jets] should have a breakout season this upcoming year”, says Luke Green, a player currently on the Sherbrooke Phoenix, a Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) team. Luke Green is a 19 year old elite prospect, and a 3rd round, 79th pick for the Winnipeg Jets in 2016. Born in Bedford, Nova Scotia, Luke started playing hockey at the age of 5.

Luke has always had a passion for hockey and big dreams of playing in the NHL someday. In high school, he attended Newbridge Academy, a private hockey school located in Lower Sackville, Nova Scotia. Luke feels Newbridge gave him the superior coaching and practice needed to further develop his skills and talents, such as intense on ice practice, and specialized off ice training and workouts. Both on and off the ice he always gives his best and never gives up. One of the biggest challenges Luke overcame was that there was no off season, “Even in the summer I train almost everyday, so I can be better for the next season.”

Luke Green playing for the Saint John Sea Dogs 2016
Luke Green- Saint John Sea Dogs 2016

In 2016, Luke was drafted to the Winnipeg Jets . “I was very excited when I was drafted and being drafted to a Canadian team made it that much better.” Luke is hoping this is his last year in the QMJHL before he becomes a full team member playing with the Jets. He is continually working to be the best he can possibly be. Just watching him practice, you can see the passion he has for the sport. For Luke, good is never good enough, he takes every opportunity to learn and grow as a player.

This upcoming season looks very strong for the Winnipeg Jets, and there seems to be a lot of talk about whether or not they will make it to the Stanley Cup finals. “I think they are definitely on the rise. They have so many great young players and should have a breakout season this year,” says Luke. This is a very exciting time for both the Winnipeg Jets and Green. I think he will be an exceptional addition to their team in the near future.
