INTERNeX Canada: Upcoming events!

A beautiful sunny Monday morning in Vancouver…I can’t wait for the summer! But wait, what’s planned for the upcoming events?

Sushi Dinner Night 

Don’t hate me, but I think sushi in Europe cannot compare to the ones in Vancouver. Seriously, we have the best Japanese cuisine and all-you-can-eat sushi! I know some people might not be a fan of seafood…or anything that tastes fishy. But trust me, it is so delicious. If you’ve never tried them…it’s about time, don’t you think? Try california rolls, dynamite rolls, terriyaki chicken, spicy tofu, spicy tuna, and so much more! After all-you-can-eat sushi, everyone I know including me says they’ll never eat sushi again…of course that’s a lie. It’s so addicting!

When: Saturday April 20th 

Where: TBA

Richmond Go-Kart!

wow so intense…the guy in the back looks like Mr. Smith from the Matrix O_o

Do you think mother nature will finally give us a break and show some sun? Join us next weekend as you get to drive around the track, racing your friends! Boys…you know you’re gonna love this! And girls, don’t worry…when you win against the guys, just imagine how sweet the victory will be as you laugh at their faces. Prove them wrong that girls CAN drive…better than guys 😉

Where: 6631 Sidaway Road, Richmond

When: Saturday April 27th

If you aren’t interested in these events, don’t worry, there will be plenty more in just a few weeks! Besides, I think it’ll be sunny more often now.

Cheers,

INTERNeX Canada: PuB NiGHT Review!

Last night, we had our weekly pub night at Ceilis Irish pub! Everything was awesome, except for one thing…people were being turned away at the door because they needed their passports if they didn’t have a BC ID.  I was not very happy about it, as you can already imagine.

So I’d like to apologize to every one who came out last night and were turned away because they didn’t have their passports with them. I was not aware of this until yesterday.  Places such as Ceili’s and Cambie require everyone who is international, to show their passports as their first piece of ID.

To make matters worse…my phone died earlier that day. So if you tried to reach me, you know why I wasn’t replying back. Although it was a disastrous night, there were some good parts too. Like for example, the cheapest and the most delicious wings ever!! Ann-Christin and I shared, and we each only had to pay a toonie! How awesome is that? And $4 beer and $4 tequila shots? Life cannot get better than that, my friends. 

For next time, I will make sure if there is a policy like this and let you all know way in advance. And don’t be discouraged about last night…next week there is going to be a SPECIAL pub and club night 😉 which you shouldn’t miss out! 

Cheers,

Flora

INTERNeX Canada: PuB NiGHT Review!

look over here!

Last pub night, we listened to live music performances, drank, and played darts at the Railway Club! At first, we were seated right in front of the performance stage so we couldn’t talk to each other at all! But then we moved to the back where we were all able to chat and still listen to the music.

Railway Club is a really unique and cozy place! The inside is nicely decorated with musical instruments, hanging lights, and has a western feel to it! We decided to play a game of darts and I lost…miserably. I let others take my turns (hoping they’d win some points for me), but I think they actually made it even worse. Let’s just say, you shouldn’t be drinking if you want to win at darts! But I did get one bulls eye…so that makes up for it! I also talked to some new members of INTERNeX yesterday which was awesome! To those who are new, welcome to our pub nights! Keep coming out to these events, you’ll definitely have a great time and you’ll get to meet cool people…like me! 🙂

The food was also awesome, And seriously they have the most delicious mouth-watering, I-would-do-anything-for-a platter of pulled pork on buns…I can still taste it now. But maybe it tasted so good because I was hungry…and when you are hungry ANYTHING tastes great! That’s why you never should go to a grocery store if you are hungry.

Erik playing a game of darts!

And on Thursdays, they have a Ukele night so check that out if you’re interested!

Missed out last night? Come join us this Saturday at our INTERNeX office for a night of games and movie! Bring food as well! Click here for more information!

Great Food At INTERNeX Pot Luck

Yesterday’s Pot luck at the INTERNeX Staff House was a huge success!  A Pot Luck Party consists of everyone preparing a dish and bringing it with them.  Because there are many people living in the house, this meant that the kitchen was very busy all day with people preparing their dish.

We arranged the dining room with one long table so everybody could sit together. Because we started out a bit later than planned, everybody was very hungry. As soon as the meals were put on the table, everyone started eating!

You would have thought the house was a five star restaurant. Each dish was amazing! In total there were about 12 to choose from. The homemade Goulash in particular was a huge hit with everyone. Goulash is a Hungarian stew with beef, onions, vegetables, spices and paprika powder. Another dish everyone couldn’t wait to try was the camel and kangaroo meat. Some of the other dishes that were prepared were: spaghetti with meat sauce, pasta salad, roasted potatoes with rosemary and Frittata – an egg-based dish with ingredients such as cheese, spinach, and vegetables.

In addition to all of these wonderful dishes, we also had people who cooked something popular to their country. There was paella from Spain and a German dish called Kaese Spatzle, which is similar to Canadian macaroni and cheese.

Even though everyone was pretty full from all the delicious meals, no one wanted to miss out on dessert. With desserts such as red fruit crumble and pancakes, everyone could really enjoy themselves. But perhaps the biggest hit of the evening was the homemade chocolate chip ice cream! For the people who wanted a healthier dessert there was also a delicious homemade fruit salad.

It was the first time that we organized a Pot Luck but I certainly hope it won’t be the last one! The evening was filled with fun conversation and good food!  We got to know some new people, which is always good.  Of course we made lots of pictures during the evening. Click here to check out the pictures!

Missed out on the Potluck?  Not to worry, INTERNeX organizes lots of events were you can meet new people. On Thursday June 10th we will be holding a PuB NiGHT at the Blarney Stone. Hope to see you there!

Great Day at the Barbecue Kick-Off!

Wow! It was great to see so many people come out for the barbecue on Saturday! I loved seeing new faces and hope everyone had a great time. Congratulations to Kim, who won two tickets to the Vancouver International Film Centre!

I also wanted to say thanks to Johan, who helped cook all the burgers, sausages and hot dogs for everyone! They were absolutely delicious! It was too bad the weather wasn’t nice, but I think everyone had fun playing poker and card games inside! The glow sticks in the dance room were a cool effect and fun to look at!

If you didn’t get the chance to make it out, there will be plenty more events and trips coming up, so keep an eye out for those. The next INTERNeX PuB NiGHT will be June 10, at the Blarney Stone in Gastown. More information about that can be found here.

Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory

Even the name sounds delicious. This store is amazing… but if you have a history of cavities or an upcoming dentist appointment – stay away from this place! Why? See for yourself.

This place could be your worst nightmare or your heaven on earth. If you’re like me… somedays it may be deadly to walk in here! I can be quite an impulsive shopper on an empty stomach. When I visited this store the other day, I walked out with an Apple Pie Caramel apple. It was absolutely divine! Everyone should visit this store while in Vancouver! They do have shops in other cities, but come on! Just look at all the goodies!

Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory is an international franchisor, confectionery manufacturer and retail operator in the United States, Canada and the United Arab Emirates. The Company is based in the charming old-west town of Durango located on the western slope of the Rocky Mountains in southwestern Colorado. From its 53,000 square foot factory, the Company manufactures an extensive line of premium chocolate candies and other confectionery products to supply its many franchise locations, delivered fresh by its fleet of refrigerated trucks.

The factory typically produces approximately 300 chocolate candies and other confectionery products, using proprietary recipes developed primarily by its master candy maker. These products include many varieties of clusters, caramels, creams, meltaways, truffles and molded chocolates. Individual stores prepare a variety of caramel and candy apples, fudge, chocolate items and confections in full view of the customer using traditional cooking utensils such as copper kettles on gas-fired stoves and marble slab cooling tables.

Neat huh? I’ll leave you with a few more pictures. If you would like to visit their website, click here! The location I visited was at 1017 Robson Street. They even had cute little piggy candy apples. They also serve fudge, ice cream and truffles. If you’re good you’ll show up just in time for samples 😉 …

That’s all for now guys! Gotta jet, I’m hungry…
