INTERNeX Canada: Free Food Samples & Almost Free Activities

Okay so as you all know, it is so expensive to eat out and do awesome things all the time in Vancouver. I mean sure it’s great  if you have a decent paying job, but for me, let’s just say it’s not that easy. So deals and discounts always seem to catch my eye, especially when it comes to food. So yesterday, I was looking around and I came across some things you can do for free and if not, almost free. Oh how convenient.

Free Food Samples at T&T Super Market

Now if you never been here, this place is like Asian food galore. Hallelujah! And the best part is…you can snack on free food! You just got to go around and find ladies with little food tables cooking away. You can sample dumplings, noodles, and a lot more. But make sure you don’t make it too obvious that you’re only there for the free samples, and don’t be too greedy either! Which means you can’t satisfy your starving belly, but hey, think of it as a little afternoon snack 😉
