10. Ketchup flavored old dutch potato chips *yum/yum*
9. the tight nit community spirit
8. the fact that I grew up there (and am looking forward to walking down memory lanes)
7. the fun days of playing ping-pong in the basement of the Masjid
6. drinking cold slurpees in -40 weather and not thinking twice about it
5. Being reunited with good people who have stuck around in Winnipeg
4. The fond memories of attending sunday school in the basement of the Masjid, learning new surahs/attending halaqahs.
3. The University of Manitoba games room - where we'd go to play arcades.
(man, i'm looking forward to checking out Polo Park and downtown)
2. Taking a stroll through st.Vital park. (is it open in winter?)
[reminds me one time I snuck into the park at night, and I saw a cat. I love cats and thought it was cute. but in the darkness it turned sideways and I realized it was a fox! I ran!]

And the number one reason I love Winnipeg...
1. The super friendly people (and the unban legend fact that our hero Winnie-the-Pooh is also from Winnipeg)

LOLLL, Shaykh this sounds like a zabiha halal version of David Letterman's top 10 except these two were even more comedic

ahhh....that was refreshing subhanallah, just imagining you running is pretty funny in itself. We miss you at Durbah :/

I had baskin robbins once in -40 and ended up in bed for days so I dont do that anymore lol .. I wonder what would have happened if i tried slurpy *yikes*

Cant wait to have you in the city InshaAllah !!!!!

The thing i LOVE about winnipeg is that there is always hope of getting extentions on assignments because of the lovely snowstorms :D
