Momo is located in Gastown (375 Water Street). The restaurant itself is fairly small, which makes it cozy. However you can also order take out. They offer great portions of food for a really decent price, for example the price for a big sushi box incl. Miso soup, rice and green salad are $7.50. Also you get a Jasmin tea for free.

INTERNeX Canada: How was your Weekend?

Geez, Monday again!… I’m the only person who think that time goes so fast here? Especially during the weekend! The feeling that I have during the week can be described like this:

MOOONDAAAYYY TUEESDDAAYY WEEDNESDAAAY TURSDAY! FridaySaturdaySunday!!… MMOOOONDDDAAYYY…

So, I have two tasks right now: drink the huge cappuccino that I have in front of me and tell you how was our weekend.

It was a very beautiful Saturday morning, the sun was shining and the birds were singing, and we went to Hi-Vancouver located in Jericho Beach to have our beach party!

It’s was the first time for me in that part of Vancouver and I have to say that I’m so happy to have attended to this party because I could discover that fantastic place. The hostel is surrounded by the rain forest, a soccer field… very nice place!

Firstly, we had a BBQ! I was so hungry because I was sick on Friday day so I only ate chicken soup during the previous 24 hours… you can image my face when I saw the hamburgers and the chips!  Because we, the Europeans can be very proud regards food, but with hamburgers… there aren’t competitors for the hamburgers in North America and Canada.

Then we played some funny games (like try to hit one watermelon blindfolded) and we won a lot of things! Four people of INTERNeX won trips! We are so lucky in this kind of events.

Then, we decided to go the beach to laze a little bit. It was almost the sunset, and this place is so beautiful, with the mountains in the background… I felt very sad, because I have to leave Vancouver in two months, and those moments I realized that I’m completely in love with Canada. And love hurts. But I’m going to stop because if I want, I can be very cheesy and I don’t want to bother you with my weepy histories.

Take care,

Clara.

c) Even if you went there, it wasn’t the 125th anniversary.

There are a million of things that we can do in Celebrate!

FREE CONCERTS IN PORT MOODY

If this Sunday, you don’t have any plan, and you are thinking is spend other lazy Sunday at home, don’t do that! Enjoy free Blues, Soul, Funk, R&B and Reggae concerts, every Sunday at Rocky Point Park, in Port Moody. This weekend, the scheduled group is Brickhouse (jazz). As you can read in the website:

For over 16 years, fans have hummed, sung, and even lived the songs that bring them back, time and time again. Singer Rob Bracken invites you into the ‘kitchen’, where sights, smells, and sounds are tossed on a groove and served on a platter. Never without a house gig, always a good time.

  • WHEN: Sunday, 25th August at 2:00 pm
  • WHERE: 2800 Murray St. Port Moody, BC. MAP

If you finally decide to stay at home, here you have some delicious music to deal with the hangover. And don’t forget the secret of the Caesar Cocktail!

Take care

Clara.
