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.
This is my first time to ride an airplane. Woot woot!!! Thanks for capturing this. 🙂
Jeng, Shindz and me. I’m trying to get the feel of it.
We were supposed to be picked up by a coaster but it left early. We thought that the driver wasn’t informed properly so we had to wait and take pictures! Hahaha!
When we arrived in Antulang, we were greeted with a “lace”. What’s with the cooler? It contains my breast pump. I will be expressing my milk while I am away from Ayex and bring it home.
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.
This is our Boss’ room. Sooooo fit for him!
We had a three-hour long meeting, which we tried to enjoy despite the heat and the call of the pool.
Finally, we were able to settle to our own room after the exhausting meeting! Our room wasn’t big but that’s OK. I was joined by Shindz and Therese.
We went sightseeing after we fixed our things in our room and dressed up for some swimming!
Their beach is not very nice but I’d say, their infinity pool is really great!
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.
We had a day tour of the city before we went back to Manila on our third day. Of course we went to the pasalubong shops too! We brought home Dumaguete’s famous silvanas.
