#UberEats Unveils South Africa's Favourite Pancake Toppings @Uber_RSA #1900thBlogPost

Hi Friends, 

With Pancake Tuesday tomorrow, what better time to uncover the most popular topping our locals request on a firm South African favorite, pancakes! It's been a battle for the ages on whether pancakes should be served sweet, with a sprinkle of sugar or cinnamon, or savoury, loaded with chilli and cheese? 

Locals have decided, and the pancake has flipped in flavor (see what we did there) of one side, as Uber Eats releases its most popular pancake toppings by South Africans! 

The most popular toppings on pancakes by local eaters are: 
  1. Onions
  2. Cream
  3. Sugar
  4. Chocolate
  5. Nutella
  6. Syrup
  7. Banana
  8. Ice Cream
  9. Cheese
  10. Strawberry

While savoury wins, 8 out of the top ten toppings is sweet, so the better question is, are the onions caramelized? No one knows, but what we can confirm is that the Uber Eats app, saw an increase of over 440% in orders of pancakes from 2017 to just last year! Other region's favorite toppings include: 
  • Sweden - Whipped Cream
  • France - Nutella
  • UK - Sausage
  • Belgium - Chocolate
If you know have a hankering to try out the onion trend, or simply want to celebrate that your fav toppings made the list, why not give these restaurants available on the app a try: 
  • Rather Tart in Johannesburg 
  • The Junk Yard in Durban 
  • Cal Cacchio's in Port Elizabeth 
  • The Korner in Cape Town 
Tantalize your taste-buds and enjoy in the Pancake Tuesday!

Cheers!!!

@FlightCentreRSA Annual #TravelExpo20 Goes National Near You! @CruiseAboutRSA

Hi Friends, 

The largest consumer travel show in southern Africa, Flight Centre Travel Group’s annual Travel Expo, returns for its tenth year in 2020, but in an exciting new format. The 2020 Travel Expo #TravelExpo20 will be a pop-up event, with deals available at all 121 Flight Centre and Cruiseabout stores across the country. The event will run for three days from 28 February to 01 March 2020

Last year’s Travel Expo, held at the Ticketpro Dome in Johannesburg over one weekend in February, reported 30,000 visitors and over R50-million in travel sales. 

“To mark the 10th anniversary of the Travel Expo, we have decided to extend the Expo’s reach across South Africa,” says Andrew Stark, Flight Centre Travel Group Managing Director, Middle East and Africa. 

This is in response to the event’s growing popularity – and requests by customers to bring the expo to other cities in South Africa. 

“By going national, more people will have the opportunity to book unbeatable expo deals, just in a far more convenient space and accessible way. The same great deals will be available at all local Flight Centre and Cruiseabout stores, as well as online on our website. These will be over 500 exclusive deals that can't be found anywhere else. Think the same great deals with far more convenience,” says Stark. 

Stark confirmed that the 2020 Travel Expo will be a three-day event held after payday, so consumers have more days to take advantage of the deals on offer.

Last year’s Travel Expo saw a 40% increase in attendance. Sue Garrett, Flight Centre Travel Group (FCTG) General Manager, Marketing and Product, reported that over 70% of bookings made at the 2019 expo were for international travel. 

Top destinations included Mauritius, Thailand, Australia, the US and Indonesia. Garrett predicts that once again rand-friendly destinations, package holidays, cruises and guided holidays will be bestsellers. 

“Demand for cruises have increased year on year,” adds Sara Park, Marketing Campaign Manager at Cruiseabout, a division of the Flight Centre Travel Group. “Cruising remains one of the most value-for-money holidays, with a huge variety of cruises to appeal to every age and interest. Local and regional cruises are always immensely popular. Still, we predict more interest in alternative options, such as river cruising, boating holidays and bucket-list trips to eco-conscious destinations such as India, the Amazon and Galapagos Islands.” 

Domestic travel is also predicted to be popular. 

“Given unpredictable exchange rates, and the huge diversity of tourist attractions in South Africa, our Local Breaks and Stokvel Travel initiatives aim to get more South Africans exploring our beautiful country.” 

“Travel Expo has become synonymous with South Africans planning their holidays for the entire year,” said Stark. “We are excited that the 2020 pop-up Travel Expo will reach more South Africans than ever before, either at their local Flight Centre store or online.”

A Memoir - This Month Last Year - Feb 2019 www.thelifesway.com #TheLifesWay #PhotoYatra

Hi Friends,

February is the month of Love and Marriage anniversary for me. I got married on 11th Feb and it's been 12 years since we got together. People celebrate Valentine's Day with full enthusiasm and we too celebrated our anniversary this year with a trip to Dubai, UAE on our annual break. This was my first International flight in many years as I only took a Garden Route flights earlier in 2019. 

1. 5 Years of Life in #Johannesburg #SouthAfrica #6YearsofTheLifesWayhttp://www.thelifesway.com/2019/02/5-years-of-life-in-johannesburg.html - I completed 5 years last year in Johannesburg, South Africa and felt great about the same. I shared my experience of living in the city and how my life got shaped in the last 5 years in the city of Gold. I think now I have completed 6 years so shall I write a new post or just update the old one. Let's see what's in store! 

2. 21 Years of #Engineering Degree #TheLifesWayReviews #6YearsofTheLifesWayhttp://www.thelifesway.com/2019/02/21-years-of-engineering-degree.html - It's been 21 long years since I did my Electronics and Communications Engineering from 1997-2001. I recently met my first best friend from engineering on my recent trip to India in 2020 and it was great to share the bond of friendship with this guy. He is my lifeline and I really loved meeting him after a gap of many years. Whatsapp needs to keep us connected now in 2020 and beyond.

3. #TheLifesWayReviews @Xiaomi Mi Home iHealth Thermometer @TheGearbesthttp://www.thelifesway.com/2019/02/thelifeswayreviews-xiaomi-mi-home.html - Gearbest sent me this product to review and I totally loved using the same as it's easy with my 2 years old kid to just check his temperature if any at any moment of the day. It's really a useful product and every home where kids live shall have the same. It's easy to order from GearBest and it can be shipped to South Africa easily.

I am very grateful to all the brands and PR agencies to work with me and I am going to do whatever I wanted to do and could not do in the last many years. The blog posts which I always wanted to do and the products I love to use I will promote and share. I will continue to share my experience with all my readers and the brands I love.

Cheers!!!
