(..continued from ONE Perfect Day 1/2)
After the breakfast we were again driven in Eco Cabs(We nicknamed it ManCab because they were all driven by cute boys) to Yoga Lounge for some relaxing yoga class. On our way there, so many people were looking at us in the ManCabs, waiving and some taking pictures-it was hilarious. These Eco Cabs are 100% sponsored by businesses or events so it’s free to ride. I was talking to @everythingmom (who is from Calgary) that these guys will do so well during Stanpede!
Then we had Unadulterated lunch at Pangaea restaurant.
Here they served more amazing food all with Shredded Wheat! And honestly I was happy to eat them all. They were amazing. Kelli and I declared their Pulled pork and Foie gras ravioli “The best thing we have ever eaten”…
Mangala D’sa from Post joined us for lunch and we had a really good talk with her. She is a mom too, and I loved how passionate she is about the product. Shredded Wheat is made form 100% Canadian wheat, and again, it’s made from only ONE ingredient. I could feel her enthusiasm and that is ultimately what really speaks to me. I love to get inspired and love passionate people….I’m starting to learn that it is my thing-you know, the thing what really makes you “YOU”-and I really liked her.
After the lunch I had a good Man Cab ride with Erica. I knew she had a lot to do with the fact I was chosen for this special day, and I was very grateful. Although we live in the opposite sides of the country and have very different lifestyles, Erica said that like minded people attract each other, and I really do believe that’s how we got to be friends.
She asked me about my business and I honestly said I wasn’t sure what I was doing at this moment, I feel like I’m doing all kinds of things right now. I explained what I learned at my business coaching session with @brenthammond, who said that the business is an adventure and as we move forward, we get better picture of where we are heading, and she really liked the idea.
Our last activity after the lunch was most women’s favorite thing-Spa! We were all giddy as we were taken into Stillwater Spa back at the Park Hyatt. We had massage, manicure & pedicure done. It was heavenly! My toes are still in pretty lavender color and every time I look at them, they make me happy.
All good things must come to an end-I really didn’t want the day to end but soon it was time for us to say goodbye. We were running a bit behind the schedule, and it was probably a good thing-I am not great at goodbyes. ☹
Soon I was back in the Pearson airport with @Abusymummy, who was going back to Nova Scotia. This really was a whirlwind tour.
Jen and I talked about how NOT ONCE Ogilvy One and Post people tried to sell us Shredded Wheat, let alone asking us to blog about it. She and I both agreed that we EXPECTED to be asked to write about their product. But no, they were all extremely generous and friendly. All they cared about was if we were having a perfect day. Their attitude and attentions to details thoroughly impressed me, and I was so impressed with the product, now I can’t help but to write about it. Bravo to Post and Ogilvy One!
This is the quote us 10 women keep quoting around Twitter, but this is so true, I cannot stress this enough.

I want to say very special Thanks to Duri Al Ajarmi from Ogilvy One. He is impossible not to like. He’s so personable and engaging, this guy truly knows what he’s doing in Social Media. We are so lucky to have met you.
