INTERNeX Canada: What to do on the weekend.

One Thursday more…and one weekend more is coming ! Let’s talk about some interesting activities for you.

This Saturday, we are going to Queen Elizabeth Park, located at the geographic centre of Vancouver, at the junction of Cambie Street and West 33rd Avenue.

Full of colors and different flowers,this 52 hectare  park is one of the most beautifully maintained public parks in the world. Second only to Stanley Park in annual visits, it receives nearly six-million people a year.

We can find a lot of interesting things there such as:

  • Quarry Gardens: specimen trees, shrubs, perennials, bulbs and annuals selected for their foliage, form and flowers. A stream and cascading waterfall
  • Dancing Waters: the famous fountain is comprised of 70 jets of water using 85,000 litres of recirculating water.
  • Arboretum: Canada’s first civic arboretum. The first plantings were done in 1949. The larger trees are about 60 years old. Among these is the coast redwood, which can grow to be one of the tallest trees in the world.
  • Rose Garden:was built in 1967 to commemorate Canada’s Centennial. It contains many rose varieties.
  • Sculptures: The park’s most famous is Knife Edge-Two Piece by Henry Moore. There are also four sculptures by Cameron Kerr in the plaza.

This is just some of the things we can do in Elizabeth Park, in Vancouver. You can also play tennis, basketball, rolley hockey and much more.

I hope you come with us. Join us in our Facebook event !

Best,

INTERNeX Canada: Smart Saver Vancouver

Vancouver sometimes can be really expensive, and therefore we stop attending places that we used to go when we were at home because they were way cheaper.

Finding a cheap place for both men and women to get your hair cut here can be quite difficult and it’s  way too expensive.

This week, I would like  to show you an interesting , nice and cheap option for those who can’t afford expending lots of money for taking care of their hairs.

There is a hair training centre in West Broadway at Cambie, where you can get a very good price for their services.

For example, for both men and women, Shampoo, Cut and Blow Dry  is $9 dollars for short hair and $10 dollars for long hair. 

Additionally, If you want to request flat iron you’ll pay $15 dollars, instead of $10.

Hair Up and Evening Styling starting from $35.

Conditioning treatments available from $10 ( conditioning or clarifying treatment) to $25 (clear gloss treatment).

Perms and colors are available from $25 and up and hi-lights are also really cheap, starting from $45.

  • The best: It’s very cheap if you compare it with another hair dressers.
  • The worst: all the services are performed by students, but they are always supervised by professionals.

Check here all the services if you are interested.

Name: Future Hair Training Centre

Address : 512 W Broadway, Vancouver, BC V5Z 1E9

Telephone: (604) 709-6055

Hope it helped guys.

Best,

Mercedes

PuB PuB PuB NiGHT!!!!

THAT was a PuB NiGHT! Beer, Games, Friends, Fun , laughter and you! It was the last for the summer season, but not the last for the year – there are good things to come in Winter! Thank you all who came to say goodbye and to the new once who just arrived in Vancouver that now know that INTERNeX PuB NiGHT rock!

This crazy night finished with some driving around the city in shopping carts and unfortunately for one a visit to the dentist;). Ruud won the ticket for Whistler offered by West Trek after a long battle with our lovely German candidates Melanie and Mona and finally won a face to face with Nicolas the French competitor. You should come next time and try to get into the Beer Pond fight for a free trip with the awesome guides of West Trek!

Yesterday was full of colors with crazy people like the old man having dance moves the candidates couldn’t keep up with! There were a lot of funny couples on the dance floor, and your roar of laughter could be heard all over the Blarney:)

Oh! And by the way, welcome to our new PR intern Tracy. She was definitely a great little firecracker last night, and had a lot of fun with you guys!

To see all the photos of the PuB NiGHT, go on Flickr or on facebook to have a look at your crazy faces.

I will truly miss you,

INTERNeX Staff House Party 2010-01-30

Hey, how are you doing??

Vancouver is ready for 2010 Winter Olympic. And as you have already noticed, a lot of the Olympic staff is wearing clear blue uniforms and is working all over the Vancouver area. Besides, most of stores in downtown will be open till midnight or 24 hours during the Olympics. I can not wait to be a part of 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympic and share such a nice time with you. These days, many people go out for parties in order to pump themselves up for such a great event.
I went to the INTERNeX Staff House Party last Saturday. It was so much fun!!! A lot of people who do not live in the Staff House showed up. I really enjoyed drinking and dancing with them and was really that I could expand my network of friends. I really do appreciate them for giving us such a good memory, thanks to the organizer of the party “Anandita” who lives in INTERNeX Staff House. Here is her comment below:

“It’s always fun when friends get together. But when they get together with a theme, now that’s madness. I enjoyed the INTERNeX staff house party this Saturday. The theme was Hippy, so everywhere you saw there were flowers, colours, and oversized accessories. I caught up with some old faces and met some new people, all in the name of peace. It was a great way to let myself loose and enjoy a great time. Everyone was welcomed with beads, colour, music, a drinking game and open arms. Over 30 people attended this awesome blast where friends made more friends. The party started about at 9pm and run on through till 3:30am in the morning. It was just a great experience”

Please check out pictures on our flicker page and face book. You can see how much fun it was.

Thank you!!!
