Sherman Chan. Food Blogger at Sherman's Food Adventures. Who am I? Well, nothing more than a guy that loves food. I love playing hockey and softball. Often, my teammates become guinea pigs on my food adventures. I’m not a professional food critic; but I do know food. From an early age, I have been exposed to many different cuisines by my parents. This probably led to my love for dining out. I am game to eat almost anything – from dives to fine dining. I take pictures and I blog about my meals, specifically in the great city of Vancouver, B.C. (but not exclusively). I give my honest opinion, no exceptions. Sure, I try to be nice and fair; but in the end, if there is something to be said, it will be said.
Raj Thandi. Fashion Blogger at Pink Chai Style. I’m Raj, the girl behind Pink Chai Style. If you’ve landed on this page I’m guessing you want to know more about this blog and me (and I’m flattered!) Pink Chai Style is about making everyday sparkle through fashion, food, and DIY’s. I also talk about life lessons, parenting, and sparkly things that catch my eye sometimes. Throughout the blog you’ll find practical outfit ideas, DIY projects, life hacks for busy moms, and inspiration for the everyday woman. I write the same way I would talk to my favourite girlfriend….so get cozy with a cup of chai and join the conversation!
