It has been a great weekend once again. This time we were celebrating Chinese New Year with the Chinese New Year parade. Even though it was raining, it was a bigger number than expected. Thank you all for coming and celebrating Chinese New Year with us!
At the beginning we did not really know which spot to conquer, so we just wandered around till we found the right spot for the INTERNeX family. We ended up just in front of the seating of the prime minister of Canada and even got the chance to see him. We were even thinking about asking him to take a picture with us. During the parade, people tried to approach the prime minister and got tackled because of it. Therefore, we decided to take the safe way and not to approach him. Chinese New Year was amazing. It started off with some fireworks and soon after we saw dragons, lions and chickens. Red and gold stand for luck in China and therefore we got lots of red envelopes and golden coins. I hope it will bring all of us good luck during our INTERNeX stay and of course lots of fun.
After a while, everybody was feeling cold and we decided to get into the parking lot to watch the parade from above. A dry, but windy spot was found. As it was a bit too windy, we did not stay at our spot for that long. So what would be the best thing to do when you are cold? Getting a hot drink in the Pint of course! We combined the hot drinks with a brunch, as we got quite hungry as well.
Even though It was raining during the Chinese New Year parade, we had a lot of fun together. Hope to see you all at Blarney Stone on Wednesday! Get ready, because there will be a lot of people joining us.
