How was the weekend

Happy Halloween everyone! Another week has come to an end and I am so excited about everything this new week will bring us. But first I want to tell you about my last weekend:

Since it’s Halloween INTERNeX met up at a bar downtown last Saturday and had a costume contest where the candidates had the chance to win a pitcher or a shot for the best costume. It was hard for us to decide so we all won a shot, haha 😉 It was so cool to see how Vancouver celebrates Halloween. Everyone wore cool costumes and looked like they were in an act or something 😉 We had some drinks and fries to snack on while having a nice time celebrating 🙂

Around 8pm we took the skytrain to Burnaby to experience a Halloween event known as ‘Pumpkins after Dark’. It took place next to a stadium in a big park. The event presented a huge amount of carved pumpkins in which well-known characters glow in the dark, it was like walking through a museum with some music and sound effects that fitted the carvings, some of which were quite spooky! It’s Canada’s award-winning outdoor event with over 6000 hand-carved pumpkins and it was definitely a cool experience. Today is the last chance to see them, so if you missed out, you should go and see it for yourself!

The rest of the weekend I was mostly in the area where I live. I was recommended to go to Main Street because of its shopping and great food, so I decided to go there. I found some second-hand stores along the street. I really love the small, cozy stores and I ended up buying a shirt 😉 If you are into second-hand shopping, please, let me know if you know any other second-hand stores here in Vancouver!  

I hope you had a great weekend, I can’t wait to hear all about it on Pub Night this Wednesday 🙂

Cheers

Stand up paddling – Granville Island

Important information: Due to the fact that too few signed up for the Grouse Mountain hike this event has been cancelled. Quite a few of you Internex members suggested to rent stand up paddle boards on Granville Island instead. Great idea! So on Saturday we’ll be having a great time doing stand up paddling. We’ll be using a bit of time on doing the paperwork, then we’ll be given the equipment needed and 10 minutes  of instruction and off we go. Unfortunately all spaces are now occupied.

INTERNeX Canada: HiGHLiGHTS of this week!

Hey guys, how is your weekend going? Here are some of the highlights for this week!

Last Saturday, we went up to Cypress for a day of skiing/snowboarding! It was a lot of fun but also exhausting after a couple of runs! Although we were all at different levels with our skiing/boarding skills, we all waited for each other so that no one would get left behind. Then we watched the fireworks show in the evening as we stood outside the lodge, which looked so pretty against the snowy hill. To finish the day, we stopped at the lookout on the way down the mountain to view the city lights!

Then on Wednesday, we went to the Blarney Stone for our pub night! It was tons of fun while we talked and drank. It was super awesome just getting to know the new members of our group as we all as catching up with every one.

Tomorrow, we will be heading down to Chinatown to watch the Chinese New Year parade! You don’t want to miss this awesome cultural event, because there’s going to be so many fun things to see, eat, and do! If you’re bored and you’re alone at home, you have no excuses but to come out! Check out our Facebook event page! 

Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

Cheers,

Flora
