New Year Parties 2014

Have you decided how to celebrate your New Year's Eve yet? New Year Parties could get really expensive, but you don't have to break your bank. There are some parties with reasonable price and free one as well. I came across this website listed out top 10 Vancouver New Year Parties. I would like to share with you.

1. NYE 2014 Waterfront Gala Ball at the Fairmont Waterfront - 25+

Ring in the New Year with breathtaking views at this waterfront gala, which includes two rooms of dancing, a midnight balloon drop, photobooth, and more. Dress "chic and sassy" (jackets for the men).

2. Vancouver Gala New Years Eve Boat Cruise 2014 - 19+

Always a sell-out event, the Pride of Vancouver Gala Cruise rings in the New Year with fine dining, dancing and amazing views of the city at night.

5. New Year's Eve at the Fortune Sound Club - 19+

One of Vancouver Chinatown's favourite local New Year's Eve spots, the Fortune Sound Club is a top spot for dancing with a fun, more-casual-than-downtown crowd.

6. Fire & Ice New Year's Eve at Caprice - 19+

If you want to ring in New Year's Eve in Vancouver with pretty young things, this Granville Strip hotspot is a good bet. Festivities include two theme rooms ("fire" and "ice", naturally), and a midnight champagne toast and balloon drop.

7. Ceilis NYE 2014 House Party - 19+

Located on the Granville Strip--the heart of hard-partying in downtown Vancouver--Ceilis Irish Pub will be ground zero for rowdy, young crowds.
Tickets: $25 - $40

8. Vancouver NYE Club Crawl 2014 - 19+

Don't want to stay in one spot all night? This NYE club crawl is aimed at students and starts at the famous Roxy Nightclub, one of Vancouver's hottest nightclubs. Tickets include front-of-the-line admission to three more clubs, plus party favours and transportation between events (so no waiting in the cold!)
Tickets: $30

9. NYE 2014 at Science World - 19+

Want to party with a huge crowd? Vancouver's iconic Science World has room for over 1,000 partiers, plus two rooms of music on two floors, four DJs, and live performances.
Tickets: $80

10. New Year's Eve at Robson Square - FREE & All Ages

While the rest of this list is dedicated to Vancouver's decadent/glamourous/crazy New Year's Eve parties, there is one celebration in Vancouver that's free and fun for all ages (and doesn't involve alcohol): New Year's Eve at Robson Square. The free fun includes ice skating, live music, roving performers, and an early countdown for kids.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to everyone! Have a fun and safe New Year's Eve!

在溫哥華有很多百萬豪宅(加幣哦!),現在自己當了房屋仲介之後,我可以一棟一棟的去看了!我昨天就把Open house 的名單列出來了,通常在 Main Street 到 UBC 之間的 Open houses 都是在星期二早上舉行,所以如果你想看這地區的房子,最好把星期二早上空出來,不然的話,就要一個個去約時間。

由於現在是接近聖誕節的時間,所以西方人都不太想工作,今早的 Open houses 只有 5 家。今天的前幾家 Open house 都要求脫鞋,進門前,門上貼著 Please remove your shoes ,還好我今天穿的襪子是可以見人的。到了第 4 家, 門上沒有貼要脫鞋,所以我在門關上問了一下,還是要脫,那個仲介是個四五十歲的白人女人,她的態度就沒有前幾家的好,所以我也就快速看完,快速走人。

最後一家是五百四十八萬的豪宅,全新的,在 UBC 附近。挺漂亮的,地板會發熱,窗戶還有遙控器呢!但是這棟在價格上是貴了一點,在這一區有幾棟其他的房子價格定在四百八十幾萬,雖然不是全新的,但也是一年或兩年新。
