INTERNeX Canada: Culture Shock !

Hey guys,

How are u? I hope u’re doing well !! Today I’m gonna talk a little bit about my personal experience here in Vancouver.

Let’s talk about one thing that shocked me about Canada: Tipping!

tips For Canadians, it’s really natural to tip whenever they get some kind of service, and I don’t know why. Why do they tip whenever if maybe the service was not as good as it should have been?

In Spain for example, we don’t usually tip. I don’t mean we never do it, but we just tip when the service is really good. We don’t feel bad if we don’t tip and the service won’t get mad at you because you don’t do it! Simple, right? (Also if you’re a student it’s obvious you can’t afford tipping everywhere and everytime)

By the way, they usually tip between the 10-20% of the price. Isn’t that hard to believe?

I think that’s just their way to be: nice and kind people!

I don’t know if you agree with me or not, but I think it would be easier if the tip and the taxes are included in the final price, so I would’t have to use my calculator everytime I go out for dinner for example.

What do you think about this guys?

Best,

Mercedes

INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday!

1657_10151370372966850_287530237_nOne thing I will miss working as a PR intern is being able to make friends with people from all different places in the world. Actually not only that but also being able to learn about their culture, right at home, instead of going to a different country.

I’ve learned so much from everyone that I have met during my internship! For example, the most delicious dutch chocolate sprinkles is called Hagelslag, and you sprinkle it on bread. It can be found in a local Dutch grocery store here! I am just in LOVE with this stuff -so tasty! Another thing I have learned is that there are so many different traditions for birthdays and holidays! For example in Denmark, you have to bring breakfast/food for your coworkers on the morning of your own birthday! Like what is that? Really? I think it should be the other way around, you should be pampered on your own birthday!

Of course you can find out these kind of information by searching on Google and reading up on it. But it’s just so much better when you can sit and have a conversation with a person from that country and learn through them.

I can’t believe my internship is coming to an end in just a few days! Join us tonight at our pub and club night, it will be held at Morrissey Pub and then partying it up at VENUE! Click here for more information (remember to bring your PASSPORTS!)

Cheers,

Flora

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
