Dining in China Town Manchester Trafford Centre

*Collaborative post.

We live just outside Manchester and we do visit the buzzing city regularly. I had the opportunity to dine in China Town Manchester Trafford Centre just before Christmas, and we made the most of it. We love visiting Manchester Trafford Centre as it is filled with lots of great shops and restaurants.  There is also a play centre for kids and a cinema, so there’s a lot to do in Manchester Trafford Centre, which is why we like to pop in every now and again. I like the fact that it is all in 1 building so I don’t have to deal with the miserable weather. Also, there is a free car parking with thousands of spaces, which is another reason why this is one of our favourite spots in Manchester.

In the past, we have had many staycations in Manchester and it is always fun in the city. We usually go for serviced apartments Manchester, and that makes our holiday even more fun. Staying in serviced apartments as a family is a lot more convenient sometimes than staying in a regular hotel. There is usually more space and more family friendly facilities available in a serviced apartment than you would have in a regular hotel room.

We all love Chinese food, so on the day, we went straight to China Town in Trafford Centre Manchester. After browsing the many restaurants, we decided to dine in Yang Sing Cathy Restaurant. It was a good decision. We have dined in the restaurant many times over the years and knew what to expect already. I liked the table we got at the restaurant. It wasn’t too busy when we got there, which is how I like it. The twins can be handful sometimes, so the quieter the restaurant, the better for us.

The food was tasty and well cooked as usual. I really enjoyed the starters and the main course. The kiddies enjoyed their dish as well and the service was good.

We had a great time dining at Yang Sing Cathy and we are looking forward to popping in for dinner or lunch again. The food is always so delicious. You can have a look at some of the tasty food we enjoyed –

After having our dinner, we decided to explore the centre a bit more. Christmas was in full swing when we went so the shops were super busy. It was fun watching everyone and taking in the lovely Christmas decorations.

Give to those who have nothing this Christmas with Solace Women’s Aid

This year has been an odd year for me. There has been a lot of ups and downs, but the downs have been a bit more than normal for some weird reason. I am glad the year is almost over. I am looking forward to the Christmas break and starting 2020 from a clean slate. It is so easy to get carried away this season with feeling Christmassy. There are presents to buy and wrap, decorations to put up and shopping to do, it can be too easy to stay focused on ourselves and what we need.

Give to those who have nothing this Christmas

This year and going forward, I am doing it differently. I am giving the little I have to those who have nothing this Christmas. It is surprising to know how many people go without day after day in one of the richest countries in the world. Homelessness is rising day after day, women and children are fleeing their homes due to domestic violence. These people have nothing this Christmas. Imagine if we all gave the little we had to a charity of our choice. That would put smiles on so many faces.

Solace Womens Aid

The charity of my choice this Christmas is Solace Womens Aid (and this is not an ad). The charity focuses on supporting women and children fleeing domestic abuse in London. I have no ties with this charity. I just think they are doing a great job and I felt like supporting the team through a donation and a blog post. Domestic violence is a major issue for the most vulnerable in the society and it breaks my heart to hear about women and children being forced to leave their home and belongings to be away from male abuse. These women and children usually leave with little or nothing, to start all over again. The fear of the unknown means many women would rather stay in abusive environments than seek refuge elsewhere. Which is why charities like Solace Womens Aid is amazing and your donations can help them do more.

Every month, I plan to donate to a new charity and share a blog post about the charity as well. I hope we all have an amazing time getting ready for the big day this month, and remember those who have nothing this season.

Thanks for reading and donating. Have a great week.

Blogging tip – How often should you blog?

A quick Google search with the keywords – How regularly should you blog, would bring up all sorts of articles with different types of advice. Some advocate for blogging once a day, others once a week and some even recommend multiple times a day if you can. How regularly you should blog depends on your blog niche. When I say blog niche, I don’t mean fashion, beauty, travel and rest. I mean You! Yes you are your blog niche believe it or not, so you should set the pace of how often you should post new content.

How often should you blog?

When I started blogging in 2012, I was posting regularly. I wanted to grow my blog quickly and I was full of ideas, so I went with it. All my hard work and dedication worked out in the end as my blog grew and grew. The blog is still growing and evolving. Growth never stops and my technique for growing steady hasn’t really changed all these years. I still blog regularly as many of my regular readers will know. It works for me as I write really quickly and I always have ideas for blog posts.

So back to the question – How regularly should you blog? It depends on YOU! If you have loads of ideas and time to get them all typed and ready to go, then you may be able to post on a daily basis. However, you should be careful not to overwork yourself and burn out. That will defeat the purpose. You should also be careful not to rush it and then run out of ideas. I always advise new bloggers to start slowly if possible and get into the habit of writing regularly. That way they train their brain to think of blog post ideas quickly and type them out even more quickly. My posts are usually around 500 words on average, and that works for most of my posts.

Bring your unique self to the table

At the end of the day, blogging is all about personal, and you will only succeed with it if you bring your uniqueness to it. Having said that, I always advise my blog coaching clients to blog as regularly as possible in other to have my opportunities to have their posts ranked in the search engines. Google and the other search engines like blogs that post regular unique content, so doing that regularly gives you an edge in the saturated blogging industry.
