What to do on the Weekend?

Another Friday has come around and I would love to let you know the exciting things we have happening here at INTERNeX.

As you might have seen on our Facebook page that the weather wasn’t really in our hands this week so we have had to have a few changes but don’t worry!! Ice Skating on Robson – Square will be happening on Sunday, another great way to enjoy winter in Vancouver. Saturday predicts some showers but Sunday looks like it may just be overcast (what more to expect from winter in the beautiful Canada ahah).

For those looking forward to Skiing, it has been rescheduled to 14th of December.

As one of my first weekend events I’m very excited to spend it Ice Skating with the christmasy atmosphere of beautiful Vancouver. In Australia it is about 31 degrees at the moment and yes, we do spend out Christmas day in our bikinis. This is my second Christmas in the winter and I love it. I hope you all share the same excitement as me and will hold my hand as we have a romantic time trying not to fall over.

However that’s not all that happening for me over the weekend, I will be checking out the Christmas markets if you would also like to check them out they are open from 11:30AM to 9:30PM so I will most likely be filling up on egg nog (a new discovery of mine that I have fallen in love with). A bit of history around it, its the 10th annual authentic German-inspired Christmas Markets where there will be traditional food and beverages, live entertainment and the opportunity to ride downtown Vancouver’s only Christmas Carousel. Don’t forget to buy your tickets online (adult is $12.99, Youth is $6.99).

If you are looking for a bit more of a romantic evening then I would suggest Stanley park, since Bright Nights has been available for the public. If you love Christmas lights then you will not be disappointed if you go.

Wishing you all the best for the weekend and make the most of it 🙂

xoxo

PuB Night Review

Wow, wow, wow. You guys are crazy! But I love it! It was my very first PuB Night and I was definatly not expecting the turn up we had. I was lovely meeting so many new faces and it makes me love Vancouver so much more knowing I get to spend my Wednesday nights with you!

IMG_5234.jpegThis PuB-Night started off to be a bit more classy than the usual PuB-Nights are. We went to the Old Spaghetti Factory, which is a restaurant and not a PuB, but you know … sometimes we do crazy stuff and break the rules ;-D!

Spread across two full tables we enjoyed a 3 course meal; entree, main and dessert along with some sneaky cocktails to wash it all down. The service was brilliant and were always asking if we needed more drinks (which is always necessary for PuB Night XD) The drinks were surprisingly cheap as we had Long Island ice tea on special and yummy banana mamas for only $6.

There was many discussion around the table about how late we were going to party till tonight as last Wednesday was quite late.

IMG_5252.jpgTime didn’t seem an issue as the night went on and we moved to The Cambie . It’s difficult to go home when the group vibes are too good. Beer Pong is always a great way to bring the group together and have a tournament. We were clearly having too much fun as other people around the bar wanted a turn and soon became friends with strangers. It was the last game, the finale and it was INTERNeX V.s Australians, sadly, they won but they gave the winning money to INTERNeX who turned the money into …… you guessed it, FIREBALL SHOTS. We thank those random Australians for their good sports.

The Cambie wasn’t the last stop, as the night went on we moved the party to Roxy where we shared more drinks and danced the night away. Overall it was a great first PuB Night and we thank those who came along to join the fun.

It was my first PuB Night and I couldn’t have summed it up any better. I love spending time with my INTERNeX group and you all made me feel so welcomed! I will be looking forward to many more crazy nights with you!

Newest Addition to the PR – Team

Screen Shot 2019-12-03 at 2.47.42 PM

My name is Sabrina, I am 22 years old and I just started working here at INTERNeX.

I love my home country Australia but I also love to travel and experience different cultures. I study my Bachelor of Business in my home town Brisbane and I am working towards gaining experience in Human Resources and Public Relations.

I am currently in my first year of studying but I love to get out experience things in the real world (that’s why I couldn’t wait to travel). Since starting my Bachelor of Business I have also been involved in a university society where I have had experience in event planning and team building exercises. I am very excited to work with the INTERNeX team over the next 2 months.

In my free time I like to go to the beach, spend time with my friends and relax at a park. However, when I travel I love the winter and I can’t wait to see snow and go skiing.

Please don’t hesitate to come say hi at the upcoming events, I’m very friendly and I don’t bite! And I will happily tell you about how we ride kangaroos in Australia J

I am looking forward to meeting you at all the Pub-Crawl events every Wednesday!!

See you soon!

How was your Weekend?

And it’s Monday once again. But since it’s December now, turn up that Christmas music and make the best out of it!
Personally, I had a great weekend to look back to and I hope you guys did too. Friday was my day to relax. As me and my roommate had friends over this weekend we just spent most of the time catching up and talking over a glass of wine at night. Saturday was a bit more adventurous after all. Starting with taking a look at Yaletown transformed into Candytown. And Saturday was also the day to meet my new Co-Worker Sabrina. I am pretty sure you guys are gonna like her just as much as I do. So pretty much anyone who knows me by now, could figure that this ended up in a night going out. We went to a Irish bar/club and danced to Christmas-music all night long. Also Sabrina got into the joy of her first fireball here in Canada. Obviously ;-).

Sunday was a pretty calm day, till I got to meet the INTERNeX crew again!
Because Sunday was the day, I was looking forward to since my very first day here in Vancouver. The Hockey game!

Screen Shot 2019-12-02 at 2.32.04 PM

Starting this exciting event at the Beaver for some pre-drinks and food before the game. Thanks again to Moose Travel for inviting us over ;-).
From there we made our way to the Rogers Arena. Even if you had absolutely no idea were this is, you would never get lost.
So many people in the Canucks and Oilers clothing made their way to the stadium, so you simply had to follow their lead. Just like a huge colony of ants, the stream brought us right away to the entrance. From here everything went pretty quick. Security check and finding the seats turned out to be super ea
sy and uncomplicated. From there a great show was to be provided.
Starting of with the mascot opening the ice-rink. From there we got to see everything you want to see in an hockey game, many goals, a lot of cheering and so much tension. Even a little fight in the end.
Even tho the Canucks didn’t win in the end, we still had a great time.
This wasn’t the

What to do on the Weekend?

 

Oh sweet Friday – so glad you are honouring us with your presence.
And let me tell you guys, we have a wonderful weekend ahead of us. 
It almost seems too good to be true, but no rain predicted for the entire weekend, so go out and catch as much sun as possible.
There will truly be something for each and everyone of us to be found to keep us busy. 
hockey game.jpgStarting off with one of my personal highlights coming up on this very weekend. Sunday we are gonna watch the hockey game Canucks vs. Oilers! So to the lucky fellows, that managed to seal the deal on tickets with us – we’ll meet for pre-drinks and from there we’ll go to the Rogers Arena and surely see a fantastic game! I honestly cannot wait. Hope you are sharing my excitement, otherwise I’ll be overloading you with it on the day itself.  
But obviously the weekend not only includes the Sunday, but more days to go crazy. 
For the very sweet ones of us, I am very happy to announce a very spectacular event starting today. Candytown is opening it’s doors again! The heritage district of  Yaletown will be turned into a winter wonderland. Lights and Candy as far as you can see. This delicious event starts on Saturday, November 30 from 12pm to 7pm.
Another thing North America is very much known for are the fascinating Santa Claus Parades. Two of them will take place in Vancouver this very weekend.
Sunday, December 1, you will be able catch a look at the Santas right here in Downtown, starting at 12pm. At 5pm the second parade starts at the Cloverdale Town Centre in Surrey.  
If you are looking for a bit more romance, you might want to go to Stanley park, since Bright Nights just started a week ago.
During the entire holiday season, the Bright Nights Christmas Train and the Stanley Park Train Plaza will sparkle with three million twinkling light.
Doesn’t that just sound too cheesy (in a very good way) to be true?!
Christmas and romantic cheesiness just belong together, so consider it by making plans! 😉 
 
So far so good, 
I hope you are having a fantastic weekend! 
 
Cheers,

PuB-Night Review

What a fun night – again. I know I’ve been saying this pretty much every Wednesday now, but I am honestly having such a good time with you guys. Thank you! 

Last night we went to the Beaver again, the place where it all started – at least for me. And I honesty cannot believe it’s been almost two months since then!
One of the best things about the Beaver is also the fact that our 18 year old candidates are allowed to join as well. It’s always so nice to have everyone together!IMG_4828.jpg

So as always, we started the night with a few beers and some fireballs. And yes – of course I went for the nachos again!
And what would a Wednesday night at the Beaver be without music bingo? Considering the fact that we were such a big group, I was absolutely sure the victory will be INTERNeX’. Usually the luck always sticks with the newbies, and since we’ve got three this week, my hopes were pretty high to be honest.
But for some reason the luck was not on our side this time. Nobody got a single bingo .. what a disappointment. But of course our mood didn’t get harmed by this.
So after a few hours we got our stuff together and made our way to the Cambie. Always keeping in mind, that this was the more important match to win … after what happened a few weeks back (still bothering me btw).
But as we got there, no Beerpong atmosphere was to be found! Apparently nobody in there wanted to play a Beerpong tournament at this time, at least that’s what we’ve got told. Obviously this was not a reason for us to give up or even go home.
So after a few friendly chats with the bartenders, we got some cups and balls and since we were enough people to make 4 teams, we just started our own little tournament.
And as soon as we started, so many other people joined in and it just happen to turn out just as big as the usual Beerpong nights at the Cambie.
Anyways, not trying to show off here but the girl power, once again, proofed it’s strength and won the INTERNeX Beerpong tournament. I am so proud ladies, even tho we didn’t get to win the T-Shirts! 
I really hope that someones ego recovered by now :-D.
(I am really sorry for the quality of this picture…. my camera just isn’t really the best :-D)

Anyways I had a fantastic time and a short night!
Thanks again for such a fun PuB-Night, you guys are fantastic! 

So for those of you joining the hockey game – I am very excited to see you on Sunday.
And the rest I hope to see you at next weeks PuB-Night at the 131 Water Kitchen & Bar. 

Have a lovely Thursday! 

Cheers,
