1.What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small amount of data, often including a unique identifier, sent to the browser of your computer or mobile phone (referred to here as a "device") from a website's computer. It is stored on your device's hard drive. Each website can send its own cookie to your browser if your browser's preferences allow it. To protect your privacy, your browser only permits a website to access the cookies it has already sent to you, and not the cookies sent to you by other websites. Many websites do this whenever a user visits them to track online traffic flows.

On the Channel Digital website, our cookies record information about your online preferences so we can tailor the site to your interests. You can set your device’s preferences to accept all cookies, notify you when a cookie is issued, or not receive cookies at all. Selecting the last option means you will not receive certain personalised features, which may result in you being unable to take full advantage of all the website's features. Each browser is different, so please check the "Help" menu of your browser to learn how to change your cookie preferences.

During the course of any visit to our website, every page you see, along with a cookie, is downloaded to your device. Many websites do this because cookies enable website publishers to do useful things like find out whether your device (and probably you) has visited the website before. On a repeat visit this is done by the website’s computer checking to see, and finding, the cookie left there on the last visit.

Latest Blog

One of the most important and major financial undertaking that an immigrant will face is buying their first home. It was nine years ago when our family bought our first home or what we consider our starter home. I once shared that experience in this blog.
A Filipino Immigrant’s Realization Canada has been “home” for our family for a decade now and if I were to go back to that year when I am still deciding whether I should complete our application for skilled immigrant through the Manitoba Provincial Nominee Program, I will still take the same path.
We arrived in Winnipeg with our entire life packed in just 6 balikbayan boxes. As I mentioned in my previous post, the grass on the other side is not always greener, life away from home can be really lonely too. New beginnings can really be exciting but it is also overwhelming.
I was going through the photos in my phone and I saw the photos that I took for my son’s birthday dinner and I thought of sharing our dine in experience in my blog.
More than a year ago, Winnipeggers (especially the Filipino community) were all raving about the news that Max’s fried chicken is coming to Winnipeg. It was initially announced that the Filipino’s favorite friend chicken restaurant will open in Fall of 2018.
While I was browsing posts shared by my friends in Facebook, I chanced upon a post shared by a friend that really made me smile as it brought so much happy childhood memories to me. The post I am referring to was about the return of Christmas on Display (C.O.D.) in Cubao (Quezon City, Philippines).
