INTERNeX Canada: HiGHLiGHTS of this week!

Hey guys, how is your weekend going?

Here are some of the highlights for this week!

We started the week saying hi to our new PR Intern Clara, who came from Mérida (Spain).

She is a lovely and friendly girl and she loves good films, music and visiting museums and art galleries.

She went to his first pub on Wednesday, so a few of you got to know her!

Then on Wednesday, we went to the Lamplighter Public House for our pub night!!

It was lots  of fun while we watched the hockey match (Vancouver vs San Jose) and drank.

It was super awesome just getting to know the new members of our group as we all as catching up with everyone !!!!

 

I think it was a short week for all of us, but it was wonderful !! (And good weather…yayyyyyy!! )

I really hope you are enjoying this  weekend whatever you are doing.

Best,

Mercedes

INTERNeX Canada: Clara says “Whats Up?”

Hi guys!

My name is Clara Garcia, and I’m the new PR Intern. I’m an Advertising and Public Relation student. I’m from Mérida, a very beautiful city in the Southwestern part of Spain, with a large amount of old Roman monuments and famous for its ham, red wine and other delicious things.

The last four years I’ve lived in Madrid, so I love big cities and I know people from all around the world. About my hobbies, I’m very interested in good films, music and visiting museums and art galleries. I’m very outgoing and cheerful; I don’t like being alone for long periods of time, so I want to make friends as soon as I can!

Now that I’ve arrived at Vancouver I can say it’s a wonderful city! I was a little scared at the beginning, but Canadians are incredible kind with foreigners and there are cool shops and interesting places everywhere, especially in Downtown. One very curious place is the Steam Clock (as you can see in the photo).

Now I’m concentrated on improving my English and having a lot of experiences so please, don’t hesitate to add me on Facebook or ask me anything you want.

Hope to see you soon!

Clara.

INTERNeX Canada: What to do on the Weekend?

Happy November!! How is your week going? This weekend, I will hopefully be going skydiving! (finger crossed that the weather behaves well.)

Though, November is not necessary one of those months that you are too excited about because it’s between holiday seasons. But, here are some important events going on this weekend that will make you change your mind!

DAYLIGHT SAVING ENDS – Change your clocks!

You will absolutely want to, actually NEED TO, attend to this event! On Sunday, at 2am, turn your clocks back one hour (so it becomes 1am).  That’s right change your phone, watch, microwave…whatever! The clocks are going back to Standard time in Vancouver which means that while you are losing an hour of daylight -not that there is much lately – you are gaining one hour of sleep!

  • When? 2am on Sunday or before you head to bed!
  • Why? As days get shorter and shorter in the Autumn and Winter, you want to take advantage of whatever sunshine that is available, so turning the clocks back will allow you to wake up when the sun comes up.

For more information, take a look at this website.

STEVESTON TRIP

Join us on Sunday is exploring Vancouver’s famous fishing village – Steveston! Once home to Canada’s largest fishing fleer of more than 600 vessels, Steveston Village is now an idyllic village where you can eat the best fish and chips and buy fresh seafood directly from the fishermen at the dock for a lower price! If seafood isn’t your thing, there are many cute little gift and antique shops, delicious frozen yogurt and a beautiful garden in the town center. Don’t forget to bring your camera, you will definitely need it!

You know you want to come, so just click attend on our Facebook event!

MOVEMBER

November means Movember in Canada! What does this mean? This time every year, men grow their “Mo’s” to raise money and awareness for prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives! So if you start seeing moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, don’t panic. In fact, I think men with moustaches are quite attractive. To participate, all you men can simply register at Movember.com with a clean-shaven face…. And of course, let the moustache grow!

  • When? November 1st to 30th
  • Where? On your faces!
  • Cost? FREE and for a good cause!

For more information, check out their Facebook page.

VAFF: 16th Annual Vancouver Asian Film Festival

Vancouver has the biggest Asian population in Canada, so why not watch films that are made by some of the most prominent Canadian and American Asian filmmakers. All films are in English or have English subtitles. You might recognize some of the stars such as Sung Kang (The Dark Knight), Harry Shum Jr. (Glee) and Booboo Stewart (The Twilight Saga)!

  • When? Thursday, Nov. 1st to Sunday, Nov. 4th
  • Where? Cineplex Odeon International Village Cinemas
    88 W Pender Street
