In the Philippines, the hot dry season usually starts in March and ends in May. So before May come to an end before we knew it, our company manager had set a date for our company outing. It’s my fourth job already, but then it’s the first company where in I’ve already experienced a couple of events in just 7 months — from small birthday celebration of every employee, to dinner at restaurants, and to sort of outdoor parties like our Christmas party last year and this summer outing we just had last month.
So on the 28th of May, all of us at work, together with our Japanese boss went to this private residence located over the mountain in Brgy. Bonbon in Busay, in Cebu, City. Getting here from IT Park (which was our rendezvous) wasn’t really a tough ride because we had rented a van. It took us about 35 minutes because our driver wasn’t quite sure where its exact location. Good thing that google map came in handy, and the few people we asked on our way helped us.
Upon arriving, we were totally amazed. There are two buildings in which the first one is rented while the other one is for leisure purposes. There is an infinity pool which is more or less 6 feet deep. The bricks make the houses appear like those houses abroad. There are bermuda grass lawns and mountain ranges are surrounding the area.
To enjoy our outing, we did not only swim but also played some games like paper dance and ate the good foods we brought with us.
Here are some photos I took, myself.
I tried to get over my fear to swim in the deep part of the pool, but then my arms got sore and I was still in my period so it was nearly impossible. However I was almost closed to making it, so maybe next time a few more practice, then I’ll be good. Let’s hope!
We also did some photoshoot in the place since it’s too beautiful to not strike a pose at.
To sum it up, everyone laughed, was satiated, was able to witness such an incredible place, was able to enjoy the dry season before it has ended, was able have some escape from work, created a much stronger bond with each other and most importantly, had created new memories that are worth looking back.
