INTERNeX Canada: Highlights of the week

I just realized that this week, I’ve been working for INTERNeX for one month already. When I look back to all the great stuff I’ve gotten up to in this short period of time and all the people I’ve met already, it makes me happy because I know now that my decision to go back to Canada was the best thing I could ever have done. It was on Thursday morning when Irene and I went to Queenie’s graduation ceremony at SFU and her class representative held such an inspiring speech it gave me goose bumps. Her words just fit so much to everything I was feeling when I graduated a couple of months ago. She mentioned that freedom was something you will only truly value when you have experienced it yourself and during her extensive time abroad she learned to appreciate uncertainty and accept change as a part of the way to reach the vision for her own life. All the great planning is pointless, just go with the flow, make tons of mistakes and you’ll end up where you really belong. Seriously this girl was so good, she sounded like she had a degree in Communications or something. 🙂

You see, talking about the future is way too hard sometimes, so let’s rather have a quick look back on what we did last week! Sunday was filled with unexpected experiences when we entered a Sikh Temple as total noobs and then ended up immersing ourselves into this fascinating culture: Covered our hair, took our shoes off, sacrificed a quarter at the altar-like center of the prayer room and had some spicy Indian food for lunch together with the Sikh community. What a special thing to do in Canada!

Another highlight was the Karaoke night at Toby’s Pub & Grill on Commercial Drive. Some amazing and definitely a lot of horrible singing happened that night but nevertheless, we were happy to see some many new people as part of the INTERNeX crew!!

I can’t wait for all the cool things we have planned for you in October and November! Especially the Thanksgiving dinner, our trip to Whistler, the Halloween party and the Rockies trip in November will for sure be some more days to remember.

Cheers

INTERNeX Canada: PuB NiGHT @ Toby’s Pub & Grill

It’s always fun when the INTERNeX crew gets together but it’s even better when we can welcome many new faces to our little family over here in Vancouver! Last night, about 15 people came out for a great night on “The Drive”. We had chicken wings and beers and diet cokes 😉 and enjoyed the casual conversations but at one point, the group split up into the ones that “did it” and the ones that didn’t. You want to know what I’m talking about? KARAOKE!! As opposed to the recent Danish predominance, last night was very German and this might be a reason why it was the only nation representing INTERNeX on stage. Four brave girls started off with Bon Jovi’s “It’s my life” but only after it had taken them about an hour to find a song everyone knew and somehow agreed on. I was on stage myself so I probably shouldn’t judge but I am almost positive that this was one of the best acts of the night… 😉 The “Single ladies” performance by two single ladies who danced rather than sang was only topped by Sebastian’s highly interesting version of “Clocks”. Coldplay would have loved it for sure!! 😉 Still awesome he had the guts to step on stage all by himself and stick it out all the way through the high notes. Great job! It was especially great because last night was Sebastian’s last PuB NiGHT ever! We are sad he’s leaving us and he will definitely be missed as a friend and as a crucial element of almost every INTERNeX event in the last couple of months. Thanks for the good times, Sebastian! Take care and safe travels back to Germany!

So next time I want to see EVERYONE on stage though, okay? There’s always someone worse than you. 🙂 Fortunately, our upcoming events do not require any kind of talent whatsoever, so you should definitely join us!! There is going to be a scrumptious Thanksgiving Dinner on Monday, 8th and the Whistler Trip on Saturday and Sunday 13/14th. Make sure you sign up on facebook until tomorrow, Friday Oct  5th, 12:00 noon the latest! This is the very last call for both events!

Have a wonderful and sunny weekend!

Cheers

INTERNeX Canada: PuB NiGHT announcement – Karaoke @ Toby’s Pub & Grill

This week is like no other. It’s not going to be the usual Wednesday in Vancouver but even better. Are you ready for it? Get yourself prepared for our epic KARAOKE NiGHT on Wednesday! As some of the world’s best singers like Celine Dion, Bryan Adams and most importantly Justin Bieber (!!) are Canadian, we should definitely try and sing their songs too! I can totally picture you guys yelling “My heart will go on” at the top of your lungs…so just skip the thinking and let’s go for it! If you’re more the silent listener type of person, that’s cool as long as you take care of the beer supplies to ‘oil’ our voices with. 🙂

The location is called Toby’s Pub & Grill and it’s right next to the Commercial Drive Skytrain Station (Expo and Millennium Line), which should be easily reachable for everyone. They host legendary Karaoke nights every Wednesday and we’re going to be part of it next time! Awesome!! Their Wednesday food and drinks specials are 12 Chicken Wings for $3.00 and Alexander Keiths IPA for $4.70 per sleeve or $14.40 a jug. Sounds good, doesn’t it? Join the event on facebook!

Here are the details for you:

Where? Toby’s Pub & Grill, 2733 Commercial Drive

When? Earlier than usual because Karaoke already starts at 8pm!! We made the reservation for 7.30pm, which gives you some time to brace yourself for the big performance! 🙂

Completely out of tune? Everything but in sync? You are born to be a rockstar!!! Come out on Wednesday and show us what you got! 😉

Looking forward to rocking out on stage with you! See y’all there.

INTERNeX Canada: Review – Karaoke & PuB NiGHT @ Darby’s

Yesterday we had another PuB Karaoke Night.  About 30 people followed our invitation to give her vocal talents to the best or listen to the others singing.

For many vocal numbers we could only be positive amazed. I was impressed by Lies and her amazing vocal performance from Abba`s famous song “Thank you for the music”. Little person big voice!

The others vocal performances were also surprisingly good and we were swaying and singing all the evening along and had a lot of fun together. 🙂

All other pictures you can see on our Flikr page. Check this out!

Many thanks for coming! My last night with you was overwhelming!

Cheers, Maria
