I was tossing myself in the bed. Obviously I can’t sleep. Rather than forcing myself to sleep, I jump-up from bed and blog. Now is 3:25 am. What was I thinking...well...all the work activities lining up for me with travelling again. This time it will be to some odd places...like Mexico (which I boss had indicated to me today that I need to present smthg there), Mauritania (on a big ship?.... will be challenging one...). Never mind with what will be coming up next...
It was an exciting experience to learn new skill. Over the weekend, last Saturday and Sunday, about 130 of us were transported to Puteri Resort, Air Keroh Melaka for a company event called “Health program”. I must admit that most people were not keen of spending weekend away from family for work. But this compulsory event, there is no escape unless with a very good reason. What I said to myself was “I will enjoy the moment”. Although I know that through out the week I was a zombie like because of putting myself back on track for my “unfinished business”. It was a moment of lonely life, with me and my writing and my notebook. Jumping out of that moment into meeting big crowd definitely need quick adjustment. Anyway, I went with the flow of my body, mind and spirit.
Enjoy the moment was the motto…so indeed…. For that 2 days most of us learnt a new skill of playing kompang… rhythm of challenge is the key event when we had to compete among group for the winner. It is all about collection of individual skill, organization and team work united for one purpose.. to achieve high performance in delivering result. Never mind about the rational behind it… after being in the company for so long and exposed with so many team building activities etc etc…the intention behind all activities had come naturally. For the new comers in the company, this is one of the avenues for them to feel the unity as one organization. But…what really come to my mind was… dream come true. I had wished that one day I could have opportunity to join orchestra and play some musical instrument. Indeed, my wish comes true and I enjoy the moment of rhythm of kompang especially when all 130 of us join the effort to play combination of kompang, jadur and gong. It was really one big Kompang Orchestra.
As the event named is Health program, talk on hypokinetic disease, warming up and stretching, aerobic activity, health check and determine your physiological age were among activities installed for us. As usual I enjoyed the aerobic session especially the dancing part. And from physiological test, my body age is 12 years younger than my calendar age. Thats the advantage of God given petite size and some natural body mechanism to reject any food that the body cannot absorb in some ways..
Kompang Orchestra was my weekend activity…
