Lolz by the time the thing happens to you five times or three consecutive times in a day you won't need to keep it in mind. Your subconscious will just be guiding you whenever you need to touch a door
I feel like it happens to some people more than others sha.

You have just made Lufthansa appealing to me with with the luggage allowance thingy but please explain the two boxes to a person thing, does that mean I can have 2 each also for my little kids too even though they are minors (ages 6 and 4 yrs)?
|Re: Living In Canada/Life As A Canadian Immigrant Part 2 by Oakville19: 6:48am On Mar 14|
Children(not infants) are entitled to same luggage allowance as adults on most (if not all) airlines. Usually adults have 2 bags(kg may vary so you have to check that with the airline you intend to use) of checked luggage on long haul flights, therefore children have the same.
|Re: Living In Canada/Life As A Canadian Immigrant Part 2 by titiclassy: 11:36am On Mar 14|
hand luggage- and a back pack ( makes 2 cabin luggage s).
So that applies to adults and children but not infant
Expo: You can have a diaper bag for infant.. use d biggest diaper bag u find in d stores so u can have some enough hand room .
On some occasions , just before boarding..the airline may allow people to check-in their hand luggage as well..which was my experience.

Thank you for sharing, and congratulations on a successful landing.
I want to be like you when I grow up..lol
I'm busy joggling my bags and items to keep my luggage at the acceptable weight limit
|Re: Living In Canada/Life As A Canadian Immigrant Part 2 by titiclassy: 11:55am On Mar 14|
Very true. Some people build up static charge than others. But most importantly what u wear matters as cotton clothes or shoes with rubber soles helps serve as insulators

Please does anyone have a contact at the EMS office in Lagos?

You're not a PR until you land in Canada. Focus on your landing then mother next. But to answer your question immigration canada web site has all the info you need.

Hi, just as @maternal as said you need to be a PR (landed in canada) before you can invite your mum. Another option is for your mum to apply for a tourist visa showing evidence that she'll be sponsoring herself this way you can land together once her visa is granted.
You can check this link for more details https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/application/application-forms-guides/guide-5256-applying-visitor-visa-temporary-resident-visa.html

About the back-end thing, I'd advice you learn both.
Then I read a code snippet of a Node.js back-end + Express and discovered that I could understand what was going on. As in, I could read the code, parse it, understand it and follow the program logic.
Once I'm done building some sample projects for my Github, I'm going to learn Node. Learning Node now for me is like a 20% job because I already understand JS.

Hi eveeyone. I have tried creating a CRA account to no avail. Landed September last year and I keep getting the same error message, we cannot proceed with your request. Has anyone had this issue before and how did you go about it. Thanks
