The Nuffie Challenge has already become some sort of annual ritual to the Nuffies, and gives us a chance to loosen up a bit from the pressure of work through (friendly?) competition. “Having fun while getting the work done” has been one of our favorite taglines – which is true considering that we we’re actually working while competing in the challenges at the same time.
|If all else fails, I can be a magbubuko.|
This year’s challenges were scattered across several months, and ranged from the physical (never wear shorts on a paintball challenge) to the mental (I’d love to have another game of riddles!). The culmination was held earlier this week at Camp Benjamin at Cavite and man we had such a great time! Allow me to take you through all the fun in pictures:
|lalaloved our welcome drinks!|
|We had to start with the formalities|
|The first task was for each team to paint their own flags.|
|It’s easy to guess which one won 😉|
|Now the real team-building starts! This part was supposed to promote team work…|
|…but I’m not so sure if we’re doing it right|
|So much fun nonetheless|
|Getting DOWN and DIRTY..literally|
|With three acrophobics in our team (myself included), no wonder we sucked in the zipline station.|
Sadly, the team I was in for the team-building activities lost the game. BUT, the overall winner for #NuffieChallenge2015 hasn’t officially been announced yet so I’m pretty hopeful about our standing 😉
The fun didn’t end at Camp Benjamin. After the team-building we drove to Tagaytay and checked-in at a quaint but pretty mini-hotel (I’m not sure what to call it but it’s pretty, really) to have our strat-planning. It’s like one huge slumber party (with some serious planning involved, of course)! There were drinks, great food, and we even had a home-service massage! I was having lots of fun and great conversations that it felt like it was a weekend.
Unforgettable moments like this one is part of the reasons why I’ve stayed as a Nuffie for almost three years already. Even simple activities would feel much more fun when you’re with the right people. The people I work with and the culture of my workplace should help me brace myself on my Year 3 as a Nuffie 🙂
