Haribon's R&R

It's been quite a time since I've posted my last blog. I've been busy with work lately...with lots of deadlines to beat especially for project related outputs.

This coming 2nd week of July, Haribon will be having our (long overdue) R & R (rest and recreation) activity. The last one was in Bohol in 2006...three years overdue! But this time, it's a budgeted R&R. Since we are a non-government organization (NGO) we're trying our best to prudently spend our resources yet also trying best to give our employees a fair share of fun.

We're having it at D' Farm Resort in Bacolor, Pampanga. It's a private resort with enough space to house a little bit more than 50 pax. This time too, we can bring along family members, of course at our personal costs.

D' Farm Resort is divided in two areas, the Mangoville and the Heroesville, since we are renting it as an organization, we occupied the whole resort. Both areas has its own adult and children's pool. One area has a basketball court. In between the 2 areas is the billards table which can be used free as well as a separate hall-type conference area to house us in case of rain...hoping though it won't so as not to spoil the "company outing" mood. There is also a videoke machine which can also be used for free. There are some arrangements though being made to complement the needs of the organization.

As early as last week, most of the staff are excited already of this R&R activity as most of the staff now were not yet aroung during the Bohol R&R.

I'm excited as well, since I'm part of the organizing committee, making sure all details are covered to ensure that this activity will be a successful one and meaningful for the staff despite the constraints in budget.
