lakad 2004

we had a team-building retreat last 25-26 at Toledo (somewhere south
of Cebu) called LAKAD. it’s an annual event which started in 1998 that
the company requires to all its staffs and employees. and i’m included
in the last batch of the Cebu Chapter.

we were divided into 4 tribes, each representing the 4 nature
elements: Lupa, Hangin, Apoy and Tubig. with me, being part of the
Hangin (at least our color’s green). we subjected ourselves to the
ATADS (rules) of our MUMBAKIS (teachers) and help our fellow AL’LANGS
(each other) in times of doubt.

anyway, it was sort of like a Survivor Challenge, only a more subdued
and less threatening one (hehe). coz it wasn’t really a battle for
survival. but it was the first time i ever plucked feathers out from a
dead chicken (not something you do everyday).

overall, it was a good experience. considering the fact that it was an
all-expensed paid activity, and we were also paid to be just there and

embarassing moment: i ran as fast and jumped as high as i could at the
pool, only to find out that it was only 4 feet deep. so much for my
‘spotlight’, i ended up hurting my feet. and so the actor in me tried
to pretend that i was really in pain (complete with the ooohs and
aaahhs), but later realized that i wasn’t convincing enough coz my
fellow Al’langs still laughed at me. Sheesh.
still waiting for the pics…
