Time to get muddy and dirty

This morning, I stumbled upon some pictures of our department's team building activity last September 24 at the Caliraya Recreation Center, Lumban, Laguna. Well, all I can say is this: It was a great experience! Actually, I'm not really into those kind of activities (outdoor games, etc.) but since we were required to take part, I had no choice. Anyhow, it also made me happy because it means a break from work.☺☺☺

We were divided into teams and I was part of the blue team. The activities include cheering competition (yey! we won here), follow the leader (sort of a warm-up exercise), tiger boat race (we also won here), and tug of war. In the afternoon, we did the theme song competition, slide pinoy, and mud slide.

Mud slide was a blast! At first, I was really nervous and I was thinking that there's no way I would try it out. But seeing other people enjoying it and of course, the encouragement of my friends, I realized that since I was already there, why not just try it and enjoy the experience. And so I tried and I conquered! And it was definitely an amazing experience!

Presenting the Mud Slide! This looks easy on the eyes but it's actually different when you're out there.

This is where it all begins.

And this is where it ends. In other words, the essence of it all.

With my friends and colleagues. It felt like we were in a roller coaster ride!

Splashes of muddy water on our faces!

The competition proper. I was serious already, thinking of ways not to spill the water in the glass we're holding.

Having some smiles on our faces

Yey! We did it!
What would have happened if I didn't do it? Probably I would have gone home thinking of what would have been. Once again I learned that conquering one's fear is one of the most rewarding experiences in this world.
