Office Team Building at Palm Beach Resort, San Juan, Batangas

After one postponement, our office’s team building activity/strategic planning workshop/summer outing has finally pushed through last May 6 & 7. It was held at Palm Beach Resort in San Juan, Batangas. Since it fell on weekdays (Monday and Tuesday), our enjoyment was doubled. Having escaped work for two days straight was the best thing ever. Haha.


Palm Beach Resort in San Juan, Batangas is a lovely place. It’s also more private and less crowded than the other resorts in the popular Laiya beach strip. (It must be the fact that it’s in a different barangay already and is tucked behind the mountains.)

Vacation Mode

Lately, I’ve been noticing that my mind wanders when I’m at work. Busy or not, it happens. It’s like I want to be in a different place, like in a beach or something. I dunno, but maybe my body wants me to stay on vacation mode as I just came from a fantastic weekend getaway in Tagaytay (see my previous post). Haha. But the nearest vacation, or summer outing to be exact, that I could have won’t happen until next week. It’s our office outing, a sort of team building activity to be held in a beach resort somewhere in Batangas.

Speaking of our office outing, I just remembered I have yet to pack my things. Good thing it’s holiday tomorrow (hello, Labor Day). Since it’s just an overnight trip, I should pack light. And I better remind myself not to bring the house with me, like I always do when packing for a 3D 2N out-of-town trip with the hubby. (The man is actually the one on vacation mode right now as their office outing started yesterday and will be ending tonight.)

First Summer Outing

If plans will push thru, I’ll have my first summer outing in April. And it’s gonna be a team building activity of our office. My officemate and I took care of making the reservation in the resort. Right now, I’m waiting for the quotation to reach my inbox.

After reading some reviews online, we settled for this beach resort in San Juan, Batangas. Aside from the nice view and the good accommodation, what I liked about this beach resort was the price. You know, everything has to fit in our budget. I would have liked the place better if they had a swimming pool (I’m okay if it doesn’t have new pump and filter hayward parts so long as it’s clean), but it seems they didn’t have any. Or I just didn’t see one on their website. Whatever.
