Neverland Vegan High Tea

Image
 I won a gift card for Neverland Tea Salon and Foodie Buddy suggested we go there because they have vegan high tea. Regular price of the tea is $50 per person which for Vancouver is a reasonable price. We were a little late to arrive as we commuted by transit. The place was very crowded but we were seated and given the menu. The server explained that we could have as many teas as we wanted but you could only one at a time. I ordered an apple black tea for the first one they also have a variety of plant milk choices I requested almond milk.  I ordered the Vegan high tea and Foodiebuddy ordered the traditional. Our platter came with all the vegan items close to me and the other items on the other side. The server explained what everything was but I still had to look up the menu online.  I started by trying the scone. The vegan ‘cream’ tasted like the coconut whipping cream you get at the grocery store. We were only given one container of jam to share but foodie buddy let me have it. The

Small Business BC Vancity Seminar and Instagram

I have some catching up to do on blog posts and there will be some catch up posts in the next couple of weeks. I took a vacation and also took one from blogging but I have a lot to write about. I am going to start with a quick update about today.

Today I attended a free seminar that was put on by small business BC and Vancity. I really initially signed up for it because the location was a short walk away and free breakfast. It ended up being a great networking event I met a few people I have actually met from other seminars or events I have attended in the past and met a few new people that are involved in the business community. If I was actively involved in a business currently which I am not,  I would have made some great contacts today and found some potential new clients. I highly recommend attending community networking events if you have the time. These networking opportunities are invaluable. I know they are very intimidating if you have never been to any and you go by yourself. I actually used to be a very shy person and going in to a room full of strangers was not my favourite thing to do. I used to try and get friends to go with me but they are busy and I do meet more people when I am on my own. I always seem to meet people and usually their are people I know from other events but if I am ever in an awkward situation I just get some food or go to the bathroom and wait for the event to start.  I didn't win any of the door prizes this time but they also have great prizes and a limited number of people to win them. I did get a free promo code for a course at small business bc that is $50 regular price.  I also had an excellent free coffee and muffin provided by cafe Divano and a really good free lunch provided by Pasta Polo.

The other great part about attending this event is I met someone who worked for a company that I have had some issues with. This person remembered me from just being around and she was actually able to make me a little happier with the company by giving me a credit and listening to my problems which I didn't get results on by dealing with head office. It really puts the company in a better light when their employees have the power to resolve issues and provide great service when you aren't in the place of employment.

The other highlight of the day I have been avoiding getting an instragram account for awhile now but it seems to be the new way to get contests or free samples. I met someone in marketing today that suggested that Instagram is just a necessity now so I finally did it. Follow me on livingvancouverloca.
