Smart Saver Vancouver

It’s Wednesday again, which means it’s time for the Smart Saver! We found some great deals for you to help save some money.

If you would like to go out to watch a movie, it’s a good idea to do that on a Tuesday at Cineplex since they offer cheaper tickets for “Cineplex Tuesdays”. Instead of the regular $ 11.99 admission you will only have to pay $ 7.99, which is a pretty good price for going to the movies. If going out to watch a movie is something you like doing more often I would also recommend becoming a SCENE member, this will give you an additional 10% discount and you can earn points to get rewards.

When you’re doing groceries it might be a good idea to check out certain products at 7 Eleven. They have great deals on soda’s and chips. They also serve food such as hotdogs and pizzas that are cheap and a good option if you’re in a hurry or just looking for a quick snack.

Using a foreign bank account can become quite expensive if you take a look at the fees, so a lot of people choose using cash instead. When you withdraw money there is usually a fee attached as well, but Iris found out that the HSBC machines charge you only $2 instead of the usual $3. However, you might be one of the lucky ones that can use Scotia banks Global ATM Alliance, which means you won’t get charged any extra fees at all. Only certain banks are a part of the Global ATM Alliance, click here to go to their website to check if your bank is part of the alliance.

Going out for dinner doesn’t have to be expensive in Vancouver, you just got to make sure you go to the right spot. Something everybody likes is pasta and we found two great places to go. First off there is Ciao Bella, a real Italian restaurant where you get 50% off on meals every Monday and Tuesday night and everyday at lunch. Then there is The Old Spaghetti Factory, here you can get a three course menu for only $15.

You might have noticed that yesterday was Valentine ’s Day, so if you really like chocolate like most of us in the office do (except for me), you might be able to score some that are on sale!

Hope to see all of you tonight at Tap & Barrel!!

Rockies Trip 2014 Spring Review I

Wauw… what a weekend. There are not enough words in the world to describe this weekend, it was mind blowing. Over the next day we will review the Rockies Weekend trip. Let’s start with the first day on Friday at 8:00am.
We met at Watefront station on Friday at 8:00am and left Vancouver around 8:30am. Before we stopped in Hope for our first stop, we drove by a little town called Abbotsford, also known as the Canadian Capital of Raspberries. The town as one of the highest percentages of Christians in BC. As Lee told us this would make a great city to life in if it would not have the highest shoot-by crime rate and a high teen-mom rate.

Our first stop was in Hope, a small town in BC that is famous for their main street, where First Blood was produced and famous for their annually chainsaw wood carving fest. All the wooden carvings in Hope are made by only using chainsaw. We grabbed a coffee at the local coffee shop to wake us op and made our way into the Rockies.

We stopped at a big mall for some food and to have a quick walk around the fair before we headed towards the Spatahs Falls.

Before we could see the Spatahs Falls, we had to make our way through some rough snow and of course we all were prepared very well with our sneakers on.
The Spatahs Falls are a waterfall that in the summer gets really massive, but when we visited it was still quit, because there was not enough melted snow water yet. However this waterfall is a great place to make some funny pictures, like the waterfall comes out of your mouth or nose. After making our way back to the bus it was time to relax a bit before we arrived in the hotel in Valemount.

Once arrived in Valemount we checked-in to our rooms and went down to the Lobby for a nice Pasta Dinner before heading next door for our night out. And of course to practice the Backstreet Boys dance that Lee showed us in the Bus.

The first day was a big success and we saw so much of beautiful Canada. Stay tuned for the next Rockies review and do not forget to join the After-Rockies-Party by clicking here.

What was your highlight of the first day?

INTERNeX Pot Luck June 6!

Since last weekend’s barbecue went so well, INTERNeX has decided to use food once more to bring people together! Join other INTERNeX participants on June 6 for a Potluck dinner! Come to the INTERNeX house around 6:30 p.m., and join in on the fun! This will be a relaxing evening featuring a nice dinner party.

If you don’t know what a potluck is, then you need to participate! A potluck is a gathering of people where each person contributes a dish of food to be shared among the group. This is a great way to show your cultural background, so bring a dish that best represents your country! It will be a fun way to teach others about where you’re from and learn about other people too! After all, food is a way that cultural groups express their way of living!

Please e-mail me at pr@internexcanada.com to tell me what you’re bringing. This is so we don’t have duplicates of dishes. If you don’t know where the staff house is, also e-mail me for directions!  You can bring an appetizer, main course or dessert! It’s completely up to you! We really hope you can make it!
