"No goodbyes.. just see you around" - Why can’t we get all the people together in the world that we really like and then just stay together? I guess that wouldn’t work. Someone would leave. Someone always leaves. I hate goodbyes.. I need hellos.
This would be our last Team Building with our beloved Manager as she will leave us soon. But as mentioned, there will be no goodbyes..
As we celebrate our last team building with her, we have decided to spend it nearby office. Hole in the Wall and Mystery Manila are the great spot. Both are located in Century City Mall at Poblacion, Makati.
4th Floor Century City Mall
- The place is so stylish. An upscale food court inside the Century City Mall that has 12 food stores. As you enter, it feels like entering into a homey and cozy dining area with mix and matched wooden chairs and tables. It is a great spot for dining with friends if you want to escape from the other crowded and noisy food courts. It feels like you are eating in a theme park.
We ordered different kinds of food. We tried tacos and rice meal at "Posporo" - labels itself as a "Taqueria Filipina," as it puts a spin on tacos by loading them with tasty Filipino favorites like sisig, tocino, chicken inasal and Sarsi adobo carnitas (adobo slow-cooked in Sarsi rootbeer). Try their humongous rice plate (P260) with your choice of meat (mentioned above), plus refried mongo, pico de gallo, ensalada, sour cream, atchara, and salsa.
3rd Floor Century City Mall
Being trapped in 1 room, with 1 mystery, in 1 hour, with only 1 way out gave us mixed emotions as it was equally exciting and nerve-wrecking! Mystery Manila is an activity that allows people to try something new and challenging. You have to choose among several mysteries that will transport you to various themed locations and scenarios. You will discover different clues and objects that will help you solve the mystery.
We have divided into 3 groups and I belong to "Pym Particle' group. It is more of Science and Math mystery but honestly, I didn't solve the problem. For me the game that we have chosen is not my type. So we ended up 'Failed'. But it was fun to try.
I know there are still alot of meetups, chats and bondings outside work. Some of us transferred to other Departments, some left IHG already and some will soon be transferred. But IRC Chat will be the solid and outstanding Department in Rewards Club due to our great working performance.
