Blues vs Stormers

Thanks to the Blues who are sponsoring our “Picture of the Week” competition, Philipp and I went to see the Blues vs Stormers.

Unfortunately the Blues lost the game in the last minute but we had a nice entertaining evening.

Together with a group of ten friends we went to see our first professional rugby game!

If you are keen on winning Tickets for the next home game of the Blues send us your picture of the week and maybe you will be the next lucky winner!

Have a great week!

Cheers

PuB NiGHT 5.0 – Review

Last night we started our night at The Bluestone Room, which was very crowded at that time and we decided to continue our evening at the Rakinos where we met more friends and INTERNeX – members!

After a snack and a couple of drinks we picked up some friends in the Globe bar and finally ended up in the Provedour, down at the harbour.

 

Thank you all for coming and having a great night out together!

Enjoy the rest of the week and see you at our next PuB NiGHT

Cheers

Stray-Mazing Race

Last week INTERNeX New Zealand was invited to a networking event by our business partner Stray travel. As one of approximately 15 other companies we went to the Stray office, but there was one issue we had to deal with before starting the evening.

We needed to be dressed as one of the bus stops of Stray in New Zealand (www.straytravel.com). Therefore we decided to dress up as sheep from Rotorua. Well actually it was not really necessary for us to name a city because you have sheep all over the country, but finally we were three male white sheep and two female black sheep.

for more pictures of the evening check out our photostream on flickr:  http://www.flickr.com/photos/42564157@N06/sets/72157626693358976/with/5708694716/

We started the evening with some welcome snacks and drinks in the Stray office and some interesting chats with other companies from the Auckland Tourism Industry. The main event of the evening was the Sray-mazing Race through Auckland. The goal of the Race was to be the quickest team in solving funny riddle hints and succeeding in four different bar games. The race took place around the central queens street down and ended in the cool bar 1885.

Absolutely exhausted and sweating like pigs – we arrived at the final destination and from now on it was time for waiting until all teams arrive and the organisers of the race would announce the fastest two teams. In the meantime we enjoyed the big gesture of the Stray team to provide us with delicious food and an open bar.

Finally the two winning teams were announced and surprisingly our team was one of them. The prize was a all-inclusive weekend stay in the awesome Blue Duck Station down in Whakahoro for the whole team. We will tell you about this experience after the next weekend when we will be back in Auckland.

Hereby we would like to say Thank You to the whole Stray Team for an absolutely amazing evening with a lot of fun.

We hope that you all have a good week.

Cheers

What did you do on your weekend?

Hi All,

I hope you all had a fun and exciting weekend!

My weekend started with a great night out which included watching the Royal Wedding, checking out some nice bars, meeting a many friends and having a lot of fun!

After that massive party night I decided to get out my flat and visit one of the most famous memorial places in Auckland – One Tree Hill – a 182 metre volcanic peak.

I heard about this spot a couple of times and I always passed the hill on my way to work when still used to live out of town.

Finally a friend of mine and I decided to climb this hill.

On our way to One Tree Hill we stopped in Onehunga where you have a great shopping opportunity because they have a big factory outlet shopping centre with sweet as reduced clothes. (check out www.dress-smart.co.nz if you feel like spending a day in a shopping mall!)

After a nice and successful speed shopping experience,  we continued our journey even if it was a very windy and rainy sunday. We walked up the hill through the beautiful parks which surround the hill and after a 30 minute walk we reached the top of the hill.

On the top you have beautiful view over the whole super city and the sea.

For detailed information about the history of One Tree Hill I recommend to check out www.cornwallpark.co.nz while listening to the song One Tree Hill by the famous band U2.

I absolutely enjoyed this walk and especially the view on top of the hill and I definitely recommend it to all of you guys if you haven’t been up there already!

Have a great start into the week!

Cheers

Three weeks full of laughs

Do you know the feeling of not being in the mood of doing anything outside especially now where the number of rainy days is constantly increasing?

Here is an awesome suggestion for how to stay away from the bad weather while enjoying first class comedy entertainment.

In the upcoming 3 weeks (29.4-22.5) the New Zealand Comedy Festival will take place in Auckland and Wellington. In addition there will be a Comedy Convoy touring through the country in order to bring the Comedy shows also to the regional areas.  The offer of shows seems to be endless and the average price for a ticket for one of all those shows, events and performances is just over 25 bucks!

The Comedy Festival will have its Kick-Off Event this Friday, the 29th of April in the ASB Theatre in Auckland where the VISA Comedy Gala will be held.

For further information about the Comedy Festival 2011 check out the official webpage:

www.comedyfestival.co.nz

Hint: Check out the SPECIALS section. Maybe you will find a special offer that fits you perfectly.

Take this cool opportunity to enjoy a fun night out and forget about the bad weather!

Cheers
