April 23-29, 2018

Highlights of this week. Two members of the project team I’m handling tendered their resignations. Ones’s last day was last Friday, April 27. The other one is already on terminal leave as of this writing. The other one who just got married on April 1 has plans but she is yet to let us know if her and her hubby’s final plans in the next two weeks.

This is one event which is inevitable and we just have to be strategic about it so as to keep the team sailing.

We also had our team building last Friday, April 27. We went to Quest Adventure Camp in Teresa, Antipolo.

The area is 11 hectares, with 8 hectares already developed. Bet na bet ko ang ganito ng negosyo. San kaya ako makakakuha ng limpak na pera pambili ng kaharian hahahaha.

We got the day tour package which is less than Php 1,500 per person. Not sure if this is a group rate though. That fee includes facilitators, AM and PM snacks, lunch, and use of facilities from 8 AM to 6 PM.

We started the day with warm up exercises and Zumba. We moved on to the wall climbing, rappelling and zip line activities. I did all three. It was my first time to do wall climb and let me just say that it was not love at first try hehe. I have done more hardcore rappelling (in a falls) and zip line (Dahilayan Park, Bukidnon) in the past so I know I will still enjoy these activities.

We had a quick lunch before we started with the obstacle courses. We were divided into 2 groups. There were 13 obstacles on the ground and 2 in the pool. Pabilisan ng oras ito mga bes. The activities also required upper body strength the most.

In the end, our team won yehey! No price, only bragging rights hahaha. They were laughing at our chant in the morning kasi sobrang olats naman talaga. But in the end, kami ang nanalo bwahahahaha!


↑Lots of mango trees. This may be purely a mango plantation before.


↑Trying out the wall climb.

We were back in the office at around 8 PM and we went to Hugo for dinner and drinks because of the teammate’s last day. Ang tagal lang talaga ng service that night. Super gutom na kami.


↑Hugo Grillery for dinner.

On Saturday, ayan na ang body aches. But that did not hinder me and my friend to go out hehe.

We first went to Uptown Mall to try Tim Hortons. I enjoyed their Iced Hot Chocolate and Italanio Bagel. Ang sarap ng bagel.

All schedules for Avengers were full so we went to SM Megamall. Ang haba rin ng pila! We went to Shang where we were able to get tickets for 9 PM yehey! We did some window shopping to kill time. We also had dinner at … to avail of the 10% discount given when we bought the movie tickets hehe. Happy tummy with steaks, saffron rice, chicken, sausage and roasted veggies. Di ko naubos lahat so may instant ulam ako the next day hehehehe.

I liked the movie! Nakakabitin lang hahaha. Pero ok lang. May Philippines sa credit pero baka aerial scenes lang.

I had a massage on Sunday just to help ease all the pain brought about by the team building hehe.

And that’s it.
