Experience IT Review – Khatsalano fest

On Saturday we went to Khatsalano Streetfest, a 10 block street festival with lots of stuff to do! It was great to experience it with you. Thank you for coming!

First we were amazed by how big it was, since it was held on 4th avenue and they closed 10 blocks of the street off for this festivity. There was enough to look at: bands, food trucks, beer gardens and other vendors. We decided to start at MacDonald, and just walk all the way to Burrard to see what is going on.

We saw people doing all these different games to win amazing prizes so Iris and I, like real Dutchies, decided to get involved in this as well. First we spinned a wheel and got a free keychain. As second we were in the running for free waxing, but unfortunately we didn’t throw the ball in the golden bucket. After that we stood in line to throw Blundstones in a bucket 20 meters further, to win a pair of Blundstones. I came quite close, but didn’t make it.

After these exciting games we strutted a bit more down the streets and felt like we also deserved some food in our tummies. So we ate one of the best ice creams I had so far in Vancouver, with a fresh waffle cone. Of course I couldn’t handle it very well, so after the ice cream I continued with some chocolate stains on my shirt.

Luckily we found the beer gardens quite fast, so we could enjoy some nice refreshers in the sun. Although some people left at that point, I went on till the end of the festivity and made use of the variety of food trucks around dinnertime.

I had a great time with the people who joined  and I hope to see you all at PuB NiGHT or at the Vancouver Folk Music Festival!

Smart Saver Vancouver

 

As this weekend was quite expensive for some of us, it might be a good idea to save some money again. Especially now that there are a lot of events and trips coming up.

An app that will help you save money is Checkout 51. Through Checkout 51, you can save money on certain brands. This is how it works: sign up via the internet or download the app through the App Store or Google Play. After this you make a photo of your bill and upload it at this app. If the amount of $20 has been reached, the company will send you the money. Our PR member, Danielle has been using the app in the Netherlands as well and confirms that it really works. The app has different offers every week, which will be changed every Thursday. You can see these offers at the app or at the website. One of the current offers, for example, is buy 3 Pringles and get $2 back. There is one catch though, for some of the offers, the items have to be on the same receipt.

You might have passed it already while going to our office in the International Village Mall. This is of course about the one and only Yoko Yaya! Yoko Yaya is a Chinese store where you can get almost everything you need. From beauty products to kitchen wear, you can find it there. A lot of their products is only $2, so if you just moved in, this is the place to be!16650234_10208214332296985_405893829_n

As most of us cannot survive the morning without a coffee, this offer cannot be forgotten. If you buy a cup of coffee at Tim Hortons, you can win several prices such as a television, a car or a coffee. Most people only win a coffee. However, me and Danielle had the bad luck to not win anything at all. This is mostly a chance to save money for people who buy coffee anyway and therefore have the chance to save money. Furthermore, the coffees at Tim Hortons are not even that expensive, so it might be an idea to check it out anyway.

Try to save as much money as you can, so you can spend it on our Kelowna trip!

INTERNeX Canada: Upcoming events!

A beautiful sunny Monday morning in Vancouver…I can’t wait for the summer! But wait, what’s planned for the upcoming events?

Sushi Dinner Night 

Don’t hate me, but I think sushi in Europe cannot compare to the ones in Vancouver. Seriously, we have the best Japanese cuisine and all-you-can-eat sushi! I know some people might not be a fan of seafood…or anything that tastes fishy. But trust me, it is so delicious. If you’ve never tried them…it’s about time, don’t you think? Try california rolls, dynamite rolls, terriyaki chicken, spicy tofu, spicy tuna, and so much more! After all-you-can-eat sushi, everyone I know including me says they’ll never eat sushi again…of course that’s a lie. It’s so addicting!

When: Saturday April 20th 

Where: TBA

Find out more information here on our Facebook event page!

Richmond Go-Kart!

wow so intense…the guy in the back looks like Mr. Smith from the Matrix O_o

Do you think mother nature will finally give us a break and show some sun? Join us next weekend as you get to drive around the track, racing your friends! Boys…you know you’re gonna love this! And girls, don’t worry…when you win against the guys, just imagine how sweet the victory will be as you laugh at their faces. Prove them wrong that girls CAN drive…better than guys 😉

Where: 6631 Sidaway Road, Richmond

When: Saturday April 27th

Visit here for more information to be updated soon!

If you aren’t interested in these events, don’t worry, there will be plenty more in just a few weeks! Besides, I think it’ll be sunny more often now.

Cheers,

Flora
