This is a scheduled post.
Back to updating backdated entries yet again.
In my many years of blogging, I've neither written or post a gazillion photos about my ex company's annual team building event
I'm not sure why but I just did not think of sharing them here. I've always have a love-hate relationship with team building events. While I love the team-related activities a lot, I hated the emotional ones coz I never fail to shed tears at those activities that ripped the flesh of our hearts and broke us down. Added to that fact is that I don't snap lots of pictures on my camera during team building events.
This year is my last year as a full time staff at my ex company and as I'm writing this post, I'm reminiscing on the good old days. How I miss so many of my colleagues.
For this year, some changes were made. Instead of calling it a team building event, it was termed as a company retreat. In addition, it was the first time the two-day event was held out of the country.
It was anything but a retreat though. The activities were mentally and physically exhausting. Though I would say, gimme the latter any time.
On our way to Malaysia, Desaru via the coach.
We settled down for buffet lunch before the activities began.
Some activities that took place during the two days.
Buffet dinner was a grand feast with seafood like crabs and fresh oysters. The oysters were really not bad. I'm one who is very picky about oysters and I must say they were really quite fresh.
Rooms were assigned according to departments. Here's taking a peek into my department's room.
I spent the night with the Math Department.
By sun rise, I was back with my lovely English Department. Sigh... I'm already missing them while I'm typing this.
The ground was bathed in rain from the wee hours.
Day 2 consisted of some forest adventure and so we needed loads of carb for energy.
We were the first group to complete the forest tasks which included building a raft, constructing jungle survivor stuff from raw materials, overcoming our phobia for heights by walking on obstacles high above the ground and peeling coconuts.
The obligatory shot with the company's banner. Did you really think the banner depicted smiley faces? I was blotting out my ex company's name.
