Last Saturday, May 26, we had our company summer outing/team building. Prior to that day, I was indeed very excited for that day, since that will be my first summer outing here in TSTP. hehehe! You can’t blame me to be excited. I only knew a few people here in my new workplace, so for me, our summer outing was one of the opportunity to meet some of my colleagues.
When I arrived infront of the TGU building on the day of our outing, there were still a few people who arrived. Faith, one of my colleagues was already there. While waiting for the bus to arrive, we chatted about traveling. She also likes to travel like me. We talked about our travel experience, the places that we have already been to. She suggested a few places that she has already been to that I should also visit. After an hour of waiting, the bus then arrived.
Upon arriving in White Sands, we then registered at the front desk so that we could have the food and drinks stub.(hirap na…walang lunch…hehehe…) After we registered, we again signed another registration which was provided by the facilitators of the activities that we will be having. Before the activities began, all of us put on some sunblock to protect our skin from the heat of the sun.
The first activity that the facilitators introduced was the Marina and Dugong. Wherein we were divided into 2 groups. Group A will be Dugong and Group B will be Marina. I was in Group B. The game is simple, Dugong will try to catch Marina. I really don’t know what’s the purpose of the game. Next activity was we were divided into four groups. I was in Group C. I forgot the name of the game but it has to do with Titanic. For each group, they should have 1 Captain, 3 Cook, 1 Jack, 1 Rose, 2 Staff, I forgot the role of the other 3 members. The facilitator will say the boat is sinking save for example 1 cook, Jack and Rose. So Jack, Rose and 1 cook should not be touch on the ground. So the option is to carry them. Since, I was the only girl on the group, I was Rose. After that activity since, it was already almost 12noon, we then proceeded with our lunch. Yehey!
The food was so yummy. I ate a lot. Hahaha! One of my colleague commented that now he knows why I am channbear because I eat like a bear. Hahaha! By 1PM, the afternoon activities began. The first activity that we did was, with our group(the 4groups earlier), we should come up with a yell. While we were brainstorming for our group yell, I suggested that our yell will just be like this, “Yell! Yell! Yell!”. Hahaha! One of my colleague laughed so loud that I got shy. Hehehe! So I told them to just think of another yell. Hehehe!
After presenting our yell the next activities that we did was, trust fall, pendulum and cookie dough. Pendulum and cookie dough is just like trust fall but different type. Of all the activities that we did, I really like those three. After the cookie dough, we had a short group sharing about the activities and if we learned something about it. Since it was already 3PM when the sharing ended, the team building activities was over. We then had time to go swimming. Weeeeh.
Overall, the outing was fun. I had the chance to mingle with my other colleagues. It was a success for me. But I did not like the activities that the facilitators gave to us. But it was okay.
I don’t know his name, but I really find him so cute. He is the son of one of my colleague. He visited the office a day before the outing but I did not get to take his picture so when I saw him in the outing, I grabbed the opportunity to take his picture. Hehehe.
This is Faith. The colleague that I mentioned above who also loves to travel.
The swimming pool. Who wouldn’t love to go swimming there?
The weather was really perfect for the outing.
I forgot to ask for their names, but they are the kuya and ate of the cute boy above.
My team lead who was taking a nap. My colleague Eric, was the one who took this picture.
This is Eric, the culprit. He really loves his picture to be taken. He keeps on asking me to take his picture. Hahaha!
When you tell the little girl to smile to the camera, she would really smile. After you take her picture, make sure to show it to her. She likes that. Hehehe!
