PuB NiGHT Review: The Relish Pub

Thank you everybody for joining us last night at The Relish Pub for our first PuB NiGHT of the year. It was so good to see that everybody survived the holidays and there were even some new faces!

At the Relish Pub we had some drinks and enjoyed some nice food. Some people enjoyed the daily drink specials like Stanley Park Amber beer and the whiskey deals. After we had some drinks and food we decided to take the bus to The Met to of course close our night with some karaoke.

26610713_1838158142892323_212067677_oSongs like “Hotel California”, “Angels” and “Summer nights” were sang. After some songs and more drinks we decided to call it a night.

Again thanks for joining and we hope to see you all on Saturday for the Lord of The Rings Trilogy event!

How was your weekend?

Happy New Year! Goodbye 2017 and hello 2018! I wish you all the best luck and more beautiful moments during all your adventures. May it be in Canada, may it be somewhere else in the world. Before we can start talking about 2018, I first want to tell you how I experienced the last days of 2017.

The Christmas party on Thursday in the office was a good start to begin the holidays. We drank some eggnog with rum, beers and a lot of food, we were ready to continue our night in the Blarney Stone and later on karaoke in the Bourbon.

On Saturday we met up early in the morning to take the bus to the Rocky Mountains. It was a really cold trip, but what an amazing views! The first day of our trip, we drove to the cabins in Golden. We made S’mores above the campfire and we did a nightly glow-snow-shoe hike in the woods.

The next day we drove early in the morning towards Banff. We saw a lot of beautiful views along the way. The first activity we did today was snow tubing. After that, we stopped at Lake Louis to go Ice-skating. Later we also did a hike through Johnston Canyon to see the frozen waterfalls. We went back to the bus to make our last stop for today, we were in Banff! We dressed up nicely and went to a sushi place where we got served by a train. After the stomachs were filled, it was time to party. We began at a cheap pub before heading to nightclub Hoodoo.

IMG-20171230-WA0005Merry Christmas! It was the time of the year again. We started the day with viewing the sunrise at Lake Minnewanka and Two Jack Lake. Both were frozen and very beautiful. Because the temperature was minus 30 degrees, we decided to warm up in the hot springs in Banff. It was really strange sitting outside in your swimming pants with temperatures colder than your freezer. After we warmed up, we went up to Sulphur Mountain with the Gondola. Here we had a 360 degrees view over the landscape. It was definitely worth the cold. When we were down again, we drove back to Golden to have our Christmas diner. Even Santa Claus came to give us our Christmas presents. I went with our new friends to the hot tub and did a polar beer roll (rolling in the snow in our swimming pants) before going to the sauna. We ended this Christmas day around the campfire. Then the day arrived we had to go back to Vancouver. We stopped at some nice places to take photos and we did some fun games in the bus (which our side of the bus won of course).

You would think that we were exhausted after our trip, but because we are diehards we keep going. We had to say goodbye to two of our friends, Dawid and Maxine, who were about to leave Canada after several months. We met up at Malones for some drinks and went to the Met afterwards for some karaoke.

20171228_183415The next day was the perfect day for Ice Skating. So we went to the Ice rank on Robson to try out the ice. For some it was very easy, for others this was one of the first times ever they stand on skates. Later on we did some games and we ended up in the pub for a beer.

Friday was the last day of Julia with her host family. Because of that reason, her host family decided to throw a party for her. We had a really delicious diner, a cake and champagne. After a lot of laughs it was time to leave Surrey and go back to Vancouver.

On Saturday we decided to go to the Capilano Suspension Bridge. The Capilano Light festival is still going on, so we enjoyed some nice views in the lighten-up park. When we were back in Vancouver, we met again with the rest of the group to play some games. After the games were finished, we went to the Roxy to close our night with some Jägerbombs and dances.

New years day! When the afternoon arrived, we did some games (surprise!) and popped a bottle of champagne. When the evening started, we headed to Canada place to see the firework show. When the show was over, it was time to go somewhere warmer, so the club it was. Once inside we counted down to the New Year with a balloon drop and some more champagne.

And now it is time to say hello to 2018! Let’s be real, no one is keeping their resolutions, so we might as well break them all in one night. So set aside that new gym membership, grab a beer and kick off the New Year with us during the first PuB NiGHT of the year tomorrow!

Candidate Exposé – Klara Krieg

Klara KriegMy name is Klara, 21 years old and I am from Germany. Currently I am studying Business-Engineering. I decided to go to Canada for the international experience and because I have a fascination for the country.

I found Internex through my university, since they have a collaboration. I am doing an internship here at the moment and I really like it! For my internship you need to be able to work independently and be open-minded as a person.

My first impression I got when I came here is that the airport looked nice but small and that Canada is absolutely beautiful. I still feel that way now. The PR-team organises events and activities and I think they are really good. I love the events and the girls do a very good job organizing everything! So I kind of attended nearly every event in the last 3 months.

What I like most is that Canada is just a beautiful, fascinating country with a lot of different attractions. The nature is stunning, especially Vancouver with the beaches, mountains and city centre!

A difficulty I had to face here is that I am living in Surrey, which is too far away from downtown Vancouver… but that is kinds of the only negative part about my entire stay here. The most memorable things for me are the hikes I did and the great people I’ve met.

Internex was helpful for me to give me a good orientation, good support and the events helped a lot to meet new people and to have a great time in Vancouver. I would definitely recommend it!

This experience definitely inspired me to travel more, but I don’t know where I will travel at the moment. When I get back in Germany the first thing I will do is eating bread and CHEESE! And meeting my boyfriend and family again!

PuB NiGHT Review: 131 Water

We’ve come a long way from where we began. Oh, I’ll tell you all about it when I see you again. So sad this was already the last PuB NiGHT of the year. No, just kidding. We will be back next year with new pubs, games, bingo, beers and karaoke.

25674687_1566724663416199_2038943092_o

This PuB NiGHT was a good one to close this year with. The game Cards Against Humanity was on the table again. And because we had a birthday girl called Linda at our table, we sang Happy Birthday in every language. After the cheap happy hours beers it was time to go. As we already warmed up our throats with the Happy Birthday song, we decided to continue our beautiful singing in the karaoke bar.

Everybody sang some nice songs. Or at least they tried. After all the fun was done we decided to go to get some food. Luckily for us, the DJ was hungry as well. So he brought Rebecka and I with his car to the Roxy. We drank one more beer before eating the very delicious chicken wings. Then, later than expected, the night was really over now.

Thank you all for joining us this PuB NiGHT. Because you will miss the karaoke so much next Wednesday, we will be there singing our favourite Christmas songs all night long. Yes Sebastian, you can sing Lady Gaga again if you want. Happy Christmas and I hope to see you at our NYE party!

Smart Saver Vancouver

It’s only a few days away from Christmas, which means that most of the people will be doing a lot of Christmas shopping right now! But wait there is something much better….. It is the Boxing Day Sales!! Keep on reading to find out how you can save money on some really cool things!

Boxing day is primarily known as a shopping holiday in the UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand and it’s much like Black Friday in the United States. On this day different kinds of shops will hold sales, often with dramatic price reductions. So to give you a good impression on what kind of deals there are going on right now, here you will find a list of stores that are having Boxing Day sales.

Best Buy

Best Buy is a store where you can buy all kinds of electronics, appliances and more. During Boxing Day, Best Buy will possibly have some really good deals when it comes to cameras, phones, laptops and much more!

Hudson Bay

23427910665_69436eda11_zAlso one of the biggest department stores will have some online and offline Boxing Day Sales. At Hudson Bay you can buy a lot of different things like for example clothing, beauty products, jewellery & accessories, toys and much more. Most of the brands that Hudson Bay is selling are pretty expensive so definitely worth to check this one out if you can maybe find a good deal on that watch that you have always wanted!

Costco

Costco is a big warehouse where you can buy a lot of different things from food to mobiles. The products sold at Costco all come in big bulks since most of the people who shop there own a store or something like that. Costco will have a Boxing week savings beginning on December 26th. Unfortunately you can only visit Costco if you have a membership card.

Also checks out the other department stores like pacific centre and metro town. A lot of shops are located there and will probably have some good deals.

We all wish you a Merry Christmas and we are looking forward to see you for our last PuB NiGHT and the NYE party!
