Team-building CAP-DAS!




The ride to Bataan took 3.5 hours, we left Makati about 5:40am and then pick up Lau, Gino and Frans from the north at Trinoma. Left the last pick up station at about 6am. Mikhail and I were late to the meeting point. We thought that the meet up was at 5:45am, it should’ve been an hour before instead!

We made a pit stop at about an hour into the journey there. Stopped at McDonald’s and got myself a happy meal with Despicable Me toy!

Then it was a ride all the way to Bataan. The place is not too bad, pretty clean but unfortunately there were open burnings which really spoiled the fresh air out of town theme for me.

Our first activity when we got there was to walk around blind folded but having some of them without blind folds guiding the rest. It was fun despite being a simple activity. We just really needed to have someone with very clear and specific instructions to guide us.

After the blind fold, we played a game of Rabbit, Wall and Archer. It was kind of a Rock, Paper, Scissor kind of game but the catch is that we had to all stand in just 2 lines facing each other and we needed to be synchronized and have the same action. We were separated into Team A and Team #1. I was in Team 1.

Then again we were blind folded but this time we switched with those who weren’t blind folded the first time and again led to another area where we had the unforgettable-unmove-on-able tongue twister game of Fuzzy Duck and Ducky Fuz. I did not like that game cos it makes people cuss unintentionally >.<

After that game, once again we were blind folded. At this point Niza was becoming restless and felt that the facilitator was just dragging time. I totally agree too. Then we had a game of shouting the whole 26 alphabets backwards! It was boring really but we finally managed to get all alphabets done without anyone shouting the same alphabet together at the same time.

Lunch time! We even managed some karaoke while having lunch.

After lunch, it was on to extreme sports area, which wasn’t as extreme as I had hoped it would be. Going down the robe from a high place was only for those afraid of heights so while 6 of them get to enjoy that, the rest of us just stayed down and watch them.

The next activity was the “paint a picture” where we had to act a scene out and freeze. Niza had to be the judge which kind of sucks cos she doesn’t get to join and be part of the team where the whole point of getting a facilitator is so that everyone in the team can participate!

After all the acting and drama, it was the tire moving game. Which again, not everyone could participate in. But that required small sized people to join since they had to all stand on the tires and move about and hug each other tightly. Talk about squashing up with lots of sweat and bad B.O!

After the tire, we all got to compete at the obstacle course that was available there at the location. Although my team didn’t win, took us almost 7minutes to finish all the obstacle, it was still fun nonetheless.

But if I say, “I will not mention his word or speak anymore in his name,” his word is in my heart like a fire, a fire shut up in my bones. I am weary of holding it in; indeed, I cannot. (Jeremiah 20:9 NIV)

Like a Fire – Planetshakers

Like a fire shut up in my bones
I want the world to know You are God
With a passion burning deep within
I want the world to know that You live

Let Your presence come and saturate
Every part of me, make me new
Let Your Spirit come and move within
Fill me once again ’cause I need more

Jesus I’m desperate for You
Jesus I’m hungry for You
Jesus I’m longing for You
‘Cause Lord You are all I want

Come like a flood and saturate me now
You’re all I want
Come like the wind and sweep throughout this place
You’re all we want

High School Life – Sharon Cuneta

High school life, on my high school life
Ev’ry memory, kay ganda
High school days, oh my high school days
Are exciting, kay saya

There are times, may problema ka
Kung ang homework, left undone
Pray ka lang, ‘wag tawagin ka
Upang di pagtawanan

High school love my one high school love
Not infatuation or crush
Tunay ‘to s’ya ang buhay ko
Di n’yo lang alam ako’y nagba-blush

Bakit nga ba ang first love ko
Ay di serious, so it seems
Kung alam lang ng first love ko
He is always in my dreams

Ang saya ng high school
Same in yours and my school
Di na mapapantayan
T’yak ganyan ang buhay na sadyang makulay
Alaala kaylan man

High school life, on my high school life
Ev’ry memory, kay ganda
High school days, oh my high school days
Are exciting, kay saya

High school life, ba’t ang high school life
Ay walang kasing saya?
Bakit kung Graduation na’y
Luluha kang talaga?


Heard this oldie but goodie in the cab playing on the radio while on my way to work. It was so mesmerizing I couldn’t get it off my mind. Since I didn’t know who sang it, I just recorded it on my phone and played it back to my sweet colleagues who were more familiar with the local songs here and found out the title and artist.

Don’t know why but its just so catchy and cute. And I may not fully understand some parts of what the song was saying but I guess I’ll get there. I’m gonna put this in my song study list!
