Masungi Georeserve

Wednesday, August 17, 2016

Just few days before my anniversary at TaskUs, a team building just appeared. Tadaah!
Dalawang beses na kaming nagplano magBaler. Di natuloy parehas. So, biglaang pa-book ang naging solusyon namin sa team building naming di matuloy-tuloy. Di naming alam kung bakit di kame matuloy sa baler, pero tanggap na namin dre.

It was at start of shift when they planned for an adventure at Masungi Georeserve. I was goofy during those moments and I’m not even listening carefully at the plan, then they booked it.

I don’t know what to do. I’m not interested in the activity and I’m afraid of heights. Plus, I declined my girl when she asked me to go with her at that rope-filled-place. And one of my close teammate cannot go with us for some reasons. Yeah. I hated those parts. Dapat lahat ng gusto, makasama. Sayang eh.

Then, guilt almost ate me whole. May problema. Dahil sa ginawa ko, kulang sila. I’m broke, I’m torn apart, so I talked to my girl, Jassiee and asked her to come with me. I expressed my sincere apology and share my excitement. What a turn of events, she agreed, my closest teammates are on the go, we have a driver and we’re on our way to Masungi Georeserve.

Jasmin and I, started the day at 12:30am. We went home together to prepare the clothes and the food assigned to us. Took a short nap and we’re on our way at the meeting place, Guadalupe.

We’re 1 hour early, so I let her nap at Jollibee while we’re waiting for others. Well, of course, the lates. Can’t blame anyone simply because it’s part of any team building.
After waiting for another few moments, I can feel my sweaty hands being in nerve and my mind in pain. Am I really going to do this?

Everyone is trying to convince me to be strong in front of bebs. But I cannot. She’s stronger than me and I love the way that she accepts my fears and laugh at it. -.-


We arrived at the place too early. So, here’s what happened:

We had our lunch and our initial picture taking. We’re few moments away from the ropes and there’s no more long waits because here we are, at Masungi Georeserve.

So, Carlo, Weng, Ada, Marj, Ann, Jojo, Jassiee and Jabes starts their adventure.
From Stage 1 – Stage 2 – Nanay – Tatay – Gusto – Kong – UMUWI NAAA! HUHU. ANG TAAS! NAKAKATAKOT. KAYA KO BA ‘TO?!

Mashaya siya, promise. Halo-halong excitement, kaba, pagkamangha. Ang galing ng pagkakagawa. It’s one of the great adventures with your pals. Naramdaman naming mabilad sa araw at maulanan, umakyat – baba, tumulay, humakbang ng may kaba at magpanggap matapang (Lalo na ako). Pumasok din kame sa cave, pinadaloy sa mukha ang tubig galing sa kalangitan, nagawa ding magtawanan at magbiruan sa kabila ng halos 5 oras na adventure. Yung 1.5k plus fare and food is totally worth it.

Medyo kulang yung pamVlog ko, kasi nalock sa zipper ng bulsa ko yung phone ko in the middle of the trip. I had fun, I haven’t totally overcome my fears just yet but during those moments, I feel free.

Thanks for staying!


Work? Work!

Hi there!

Hi there,

Thanks for stopping by. Let me share something.

We all have that special moment where you feel that you want to appreciate something. And for me, this is a special moment. You see, when I met you guys, I wasn’t expecting anything, but for sure, I don’t know what to do. During the early days, I’m afraid, I don’t know anyone, and I’m full of what ifs.

What if we don’t get along? What if there will be some compatibility problems. What if I’m not really qualified to do the things that were assigned to me?
I have some issues. That’s sure.

So, during breaks and lunch times, I eat alone and do stuffs alone. I even walk around BGC to pass time and I re-evaluate what’s happening. Will I ever be happy with this new team? I’m missing my old team. 

I met you one by one; I talked to you during coaching and tried to sneak myself in your circle. I know that I’ll fail. But I didn’t fail entirely. I also succeed. So, to those who welcomed me and invited me in, thank you.

To my teammates that have weird-mixes-of-everything, you know who you are. I just want to say that because of you, I felt some freedom, I became confident to share who I am, that *sebajisoka and this is my story; you took me out of my shell. You guys are the reason why I’m still in the company.

I’m so thankful that you are my teammates, thanks to all the fun and the laughter. To all the nagging and bullying and the teasing, I look forward for more adventures with you. Thanks for the pump. Thanks for trusting me. Thanks for calling me friend – for showing me that we’re close – for sharing your problems and sharing your life hacks and tips. For laughing at my jokes, for sharing your time (let’s just assume that you have a choice). For asking me if I wanted to be your kuya, for being pasaway, for all.

I just want to express my appreciation because tomorrow maybe it’s too late, because some of you have plans of leaving, I wanted you guys to stay because I just met the best team, but yeah, I know that you have your dream jobs and other life goals. I wish you all the best pursuing those things; I just can’t contain the sadness and the feeling of missing someone in the team. Am I being clingy? Haha! Anyway, Iloveyouguys and I mean it. 
Until next time? I hope that you’re still here and if so, I appreciate the time you spent here. 

Let me know if you need anything.
