Smart Saver

It’ Sunday and it’s time for Smart Saver. Here are a couple of tips for how to get through your week without having to spend a whole lot of money. But of course you also want to enjoy life. no problem. Check out these suggestions.

Check out some of the most delicious burgers, waffles and doughnuts in town for prices that you won’t believe. Everything for the price of just $5 or less! Let me give you an example. At 1391 East 41st Avenue you’ll find Duffin’s Doughnuts. This place is open 24/7, and is selling burgers and of course doughnuts for under $5… fantastic! Check out a longer list of different places to go for cheap eats here. If you’re not so much into burgers, waffles and doughnuts then have a look at Ninja Bubble Tea. This is the place to go if you want to get yourself a nice bubble tea for a reasonable price. Bring a student card and you’ll save extra money. The Ninja Bubble Tea store is located at1696 Robson Street.

After a filling yourself with delicious doughnut you probably want to get a bit of exercise 😉 No need to worry. You don’t have to pay a fortune for this. Just go to Robson Square where the public ice rink is now open. It’s for free if you bring your own skates but you won’t have to pay more than $4 for skate rentals. Check out this site for more information.

Finally you can finish off a great and cheap week by taking advantage of free wellness workshops at Polo Health + Longevity Centre on Saturday, December 13, from 10am till 2pm. This will be your perfect mini workshop that will teach you the basics in how to live a healthy life. This wellness centre is located in New Westminster, but remember that you can go through all zones on a one-zone bus ticket during weekends. Have a look at this site to get more info and to view the precise location of Polo Health + Longevity Centre.

Thank you for everything

So, my time has come to say goodbye and hopefully I’ll see you again some day. I’ve had a fantastic time here in Canada, and sharing my experiences together with awesome people just made my experience even better.

Of course I want to say thank you to a lot of people. Thank you to Tim who gave me this great opportunity to work for INTERNeX, and who together with Simon and Mina supported me all the way through my time here. A big thank you to everybody at the INTERNeX office. I’m truly amazed by the efforts you’re doing to give everybody their time of their lives. Thank you to Alexandra and Selina for introducing me to my different tasks and thanks to Sophie for your great help. And of course thanks to all of you guys who participated in all the different INTERNeX activities… you’ve given me experiences that I’ll never forget! I hope that I’ve been able to give you something in return. I feel truly lucky to have found INTERNeX. I can’t believe how much I’ve gained both professionally and personally during the last couple of months.

I’ve travelled to a lot of different countries before, and I’ve also tried to lived in another country before I arrived here in Canada. I can definitely say that this country is like no other I’ve visited. My first trip to the Rockies showed me how beautiful this country is. Stunning mountains, lakes and waterfalls. And I’ll never forget Vancouver. This city really has it all: nice beaches, lots of great events to see and activities to do, and the great outdoors is just around the corner. And with another trip to Portland I also got to see the US. Watching hockey matches, basketball matches, doing stand-up paddling around Granville Island, watching a couple of crazy and entertaining parades, and not to forget all of the pub nights and much much more. What a fantastic time I’ve had here!

Once again thanks to all of you who have given me a great time here, and thanks to Julie and Lina for overtaking the arrangement of the pub nights for the next period of time. I’ll bring all of the great memories with me back to Denmark, and hopefully we will meet again somewhere, someday… who knows 🙂

All the best,

your INTERNeX PR-Coordinator Henrik.

Review: Vancouver Giants hockey match

Last Saturday we went to watch a great hockey match at Pacific Coliseum. We met up around 6pm and walked the last way to the stadium. We went to watch Vancouver Giants against Saskatoon Blades. The Giants are the younger hockey players trying to get their breakthrough to the Vancouver Canucks and the NHL. So it wasn’t the Canucks, still it was amazing to see how big the stadium is and how many people went to watch the match. And the atmosphere was fantastic. We got some pretty good seats behind the goal not too far away from the ice rink. The match had an awesome start with lots of intensity. All of the players gave it all they got, and the match really had all the drama you could possibly imagine… plenty of goals, a fight between two players, extra time and finally a penalty shootout.

And we also got to experience the teddy bear toss. A lot of people had bought teddy bears at the stadium to support kids in need. So, after the Giants scored their first goal teddy bears came flying onto the ice rink. What a fantastic moment! Teddy bears came flying from everywhere and it seemed as if it would never stop. During the breaks we were entertained by small kids plying hockey and a lot of different competitions.

The final score was 3-2 to Vancouver Giants after a nerve-wracking penalty shootout. Thanks to you guys who joined in for this great match!

What to do on the weekend

It’s weekend again and it’s the first weekend of December, so of course we’ve also included some Christmas events worth visiting. Let’s just call it a Christmas special. December is always an expensive month, so these suggestions will help you get through December without getting totally ripped.

This Friday, December 5th, a big Christmas tree will be lit up by 64,700 light bulbs! This will happen on Jack Poole Plaza in downtown Vancouver right next to Vancouver Convention Centre. It’s the 8th consecutive year that this event takes place, and it’s being said to be bigger than ever. Imagine the Rockefeller Christmas tree in New York… this will be something similar, so there’s definitely something to look forward to. The event will also put focus on the improvement of the mental wellbeing of children and youth. And it’s for free! Click here to get more information.

A lot of great markets are open during December, and luckily most of these markets have free entrance. Go to the Lonsdale Quay Christmas party in North Vancouver. Here you can buy special Christmas presents, you can enjoy live music and of course you can also visit Santa Claus. Check out this site for more information.

Another free event is taking place on Sunday, December 7th. It’s the River District 2014 Winter Craft Fair. Here you can support local artisans and do your Christmas shopping. Ok, so it’s not totally free in case you choose to buy something but you’re not getting charged any annoying entrance fees. Aaand of course it’s up to you how much you want to spend. Check out the location and get more information here.

Finally on Sunday, December 7, it’s time for the Santa Claus Parade. Get ready to watch this massive parade together with around 330,000 spectators!  Of course it’s for free. The parade includes more than 3,500 participants and has 65 marching bands. The parade will start at 1pm in downtown Vancouver. Click here to get more detailed information on the route of the parade.

Enjoy your weekend.
