rants and dept. team-building


It’s been awhile since I last blogged. I’m having some problems with my PC the past couple of weeks. I’m not able to login in a quite number of websites including my own website…Argghh!!! I’m not exactly sure what’s wrong. It could be that the security settings with Trend Micro PC-cillin has changed or this PC might have been infected with a virus as I can’t do a ping, ipconfig or trace route from the command line. It’s been acting weird the past 2 weeks.

I think a reformat would really be good to have a clean slate. IE is not working correctly as well too. Although I’m using Firefox, IE not working kinda indicates there’s something wrong with this PC. I’m not sure though when we could reformat as I would need to back up all my files and I would have to wait that my sister will be able to back up all of her files.

For now I’ll have to blog via Flickr instead of logging in my WordPress site.

It’s been a very busy week for me at work and I’m just really feeling tired and drained. I’m glad the weekend is finally here.

Last weekend we had our team building in Hidden, Valley, Lamac, Pinamungahan, Cebu. I wasn’t really looking forward at it at first as it was a weekend and it seemed like I’ll still be working on my day off- facing the same people at work and discussing about work stuff except that we are not inside the office.

If not for Yman begging that we go I wouldn’t have went. I told myself that the only good thing about it is that all expense is paid by the company.

The road going to Hidden Valley was rough and bumpy. We took the Naga-Uling route and then upon reaching Lutopan, Toledo our van turned to the left heading towards the interior mountains. The place really seemed remote and far from “civilization” until we arrived in the Lamac. We were surprised to find many houses and people in such a remote place. My officemates were all saying “No wonder it’s called Hidden Valley!”.

I didn’t realize that Lamac was in Pinamungahan. I’ve heard of Lamac before as my friends in the mountaineering club have been there caving but I didn’t know it was in Pinamungahan.

We were all business in the morning going through all the team-building activities. In the afternoon, it was much more serious as Jan did a 4-hour discussion about work stuff. Everybody was getting a bit sleepy and tired. As much possible nobody tried to ask too many questions so as not to prolong the discussion.After Jan’s discussion, we took a dip in the pool and finally got to unwind.

The next day we woke up around 6:30 in the morning to prepare for some hiking and caving. We were a bit dissapointed that we could only explore 1 cave as we did not brought any caving equipment (headlamp/flashlight, helmet). From the resort we hiked up to the cave which was located up in a mountain. The cave was already dead and there was really nothing spectucular to see. It’s looks similar to the cave in Carcar. Hopefully next time I’ll be able to explore the other caves. I’ve heard from friends how beautiful the other caves are.
