Calling all those on a quest to find the secret to happiness. Finland, which was named the world’s happiest country for the fifth year in a row by the United Nations’ World Happiness Report, has just launched a contest to help a few lucky winners discover the country’s essence of happiness.

Dubbed the Masterclass of Happiness and launched by Finland’s tourism office, the four-day retreat will bring the 10 lucky guests to the Lakeland region of Finland, where they will stay at the all-inclusive Kuru resort. All participants will have their private rooms, and the masterclass will cover expenses for travel and accommodation.

During the stay, guests will take a dive into Finland and its lands, and they will fully immerse in nature by exercising in forests and lakes, learning about nature crafts, and discovering the essence of authentic Finnish culture and way of life. Ya know, a taste of all that happiness secret sauce.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
