Finally, our team had our first ever summer outing together last May 27-29. As far as I remember, the last team activity that we held out of town was back in 2004. Connie was still here then.
Our team outing was in Antulang, Dumaguete. All of us joined except Sel, who went to Palawan for their honeymoon.
I’m so lazy to describe the whole place so I’ll try my best to comment on the things which we failed to capture with our cameras. 😉
- Their food is so-so. The most that I enjoyed was their breakfast meals.
- Their service is overly slow! When we realized this, we learned our lesson. What we did was, if we’re having dinner at 7pm, we go the restaurant and order at 6pm then we leave and wander around. So when we get back, we’re sure that our food was ready.
- They scrimped us on ice. During one of our dinners, we told the waiter to just leave us a bucket of ice so that we don’t have to call them anymore. His reply was something like “Pwede po pero kelangan po kayo magdagdag ng 20 pesos per bucket”. Our reaction was “What?!”.
So much for that. Here are the pictures instead.
We had brunch in their restaurant because we arrived at 11AM. After that, we were supposed to settle to our rooms but the only room that was ready was our Boss’ room.
We had a three-hour long meeting, which we tried to enjoy despite the heat and the call of the pool.
The next day, we rode a yacht to APO Island for more swimming and snorkeling! First yacht ride and snorkeling. That island is divine!!! Its marine life is awesome and a true feast for the eyes! There was a school of huge fishes swimming around me and for a while, I thought they will bite me! I super duper enjoyed my first snorkeling adventure.
