ACE Offsite Meeting 2016
Our driver took us across the causeway for breakfast in the district of 皇后. We then headed for our chalet at Kukup.
After check-in to the chalet, we visited the neighboring National Park, which is a mangrove swamp. Unfortunately, the park was under massive renovation, we only managed to experience a small fraction of the entire park. Nevertheless, there were ample photo ops.
Lunch’s so good …
Dinner’s even better
The team got together to pen their wishes on the 孔明灯. One of the most memorable wish was to 升官发财, which initiated some discussions among members of the team, including consultation with the all-knowing Google.
The Karaoke machine was kept busy throughout our stay in the chalet, with reports indicating the shutdown time nearing 3am in the morning. It was great fun for both the singers, and also the audience supporting the singers.
In the midst of all the fun, we also had some serious moments. It was during TCSS Part I, where we got to do some self-reflections with respect to Business Grants Portal development, and to share those thoughts with the tribe.
In TCSS Part II, the 3 newly formed squads (Reach, New-Type & Meteor), sat together to strategize on each team’s future, identifying concerns and also contributing ideas on how to improve the team’s performance.
Overall the session was very productive, reflecting on the past, appreciate the present and also planning as a team, moving forward.
Finally, it was time to leave.
Many thanks to Hoon Ling for organizing this trip. I look forward to our next offsite meeting.
Make work so fun, and you will never have to work again!
