APD Summer Outing 2017

We just recently had our company summer outing in Buracai de Laiya in Batangas. It is the third summer outing for most but it will be the first time for me. I wasn't really excited and didn't have plans to go at first, because most of my friends are not joining the outing. But when a few of my friends changed their minds and decided to go too! I got all excited and I immediately packed my bags!

The call time was around 6AM. Me and my friends got there a little early but the bus had a few problems getting a parking slot. As usual most of the people arrived at around 7AM. We left Makati before 8AM and while on the road we were given our summer kits! We have our summer shirts, bandanas (color depending on your assigned team) and color coded ballers (to determine who knows how to swim, who doesn't, members of the safety and fun committees).

Travelling to Laiya Batangas will take 4-5 hours depending on the traffic. I think we got there before lunch. And since we were supposed to get there earlier, breakfast was already a bit cold, but still it was scrumptious. Or maybe we're just hungry!

Room assignments were announced and the girls of SEO team will be staying with the SMART group which is of course composed of all girls too. These girls are really great! They can be loud and kikay, but sure they are all fun to be with. We placed our bags on our beds, changed to our summer outing shirts and headed down to our assembly.

We were introduced to our summer teammates then we were asked to come up with our own cheer! I'm not really good at this and I'm happy I'm teammates with Gala! Gala gave us instructions and a few other girls also pitched in!

After the cheering competition, we played tug of war then we had our lunch! We had so much food and it was great! Specially the lechon! Yummy! Unfortunately, everybody was too hungry to take photos of the food!

Before 6PM we were asked to get ready for dinner. So we changed to our coachella clothes which was our summer outing theme by the way. Dinner was served by the pool and it was very filling too.

After dinner, we all gathered by the beach and we are on to our final game. We have a lip sync battle. The managers were the first to present, although they're not included in the competition. Their song was 2 Become 1 by the Spice Girls. The song assigned to us was Buttons by the Pussycat Dolls and unfortunately, among the other teams that will compete, we are to go first. Luckily, we still have Gala on the team who led the choreography! Yay! Other teams sang Quit Playing Games with my Heart by the BSB, Dancing Queen by ABBA and What Makes You Beautiful by One Direction.

The next morning, we all had breakfast together and we were given more time to swim and explore the place. Yesterday's games overall winners won a banana boat ride!

This summer outing was really fun! We all had a great time, spent 2 days with fun people and also had good food! It was indeed a summer to remember. I look forward to next year's summer outing in APD. BTW, here's a short video of our summer outing.
