Langkawi Teambuilding Trip

I am back from my teambuilding in Langkawi and here's the updates of the wonderful and tiring trip. I really lack of sleep during this 4 days but managed to recover during the weekend. Here's what I did during the 4 days.

Day 1 : 28th Oct 07

We took the 11am flight to Langkawi and reached around 12.30pm (AA didn't delay, so, that's really good). Our first activity of course is to fill up our tummy, so, we head for the Orchid Ria Restaurant in Pantai Chenang. Food is good but we make a mistake on ordering the Tiger Prawn coz that is really expensive!!

After that, we went to the airport again to get the 2nd batch before we start our mini tour around the island. We only stop by 2 places and the rest is just looking tru the bus window :p.
Here's our first spot : Cable car ride at Oriental Village to Gunnung Mat Cinchang. The cable car ride is scary (drizzling & wind) but thanks to the group, I dun feel the fear of height during this trip. I totally enjoy the run to the Cable bridge (suspension bridge) and posing for special effect photo (being blown by the strong wind as shwon in the bottom photo).

After that, we stop by Pantai Pasir Hitam (Black Sand Beach) but the beach is not as beautiful as during 2001 visit. It look a bit polluted and only my colleague dare to touch the balck sand while I snap photo for her and my other colleague captured this photo.

Day 2: 29th Oct 07

This is the day for serious stuff such as meeting, presentation and brain storming for the 2008 goal (it's a very long day as well, more tiring than physical activities). Though it is serious by day but during our lunch and dinner, it is another light & easy mood for everyone. Do you notice our nice baby blue t-shirts? It is custome made just for our team building *wink*

Day 3 : 30th Oct 07
After a day of long meetings, today is a day for physical challenge coz we are having Andaman Sea Pirates Challenge. Sad to say that the weather is not on our side (we have to face the heavy rain and the rough sea in a small boat and also not able to capture the photos of the entire challenge).

We are divided into 2 group, Yellow and Blue and are given 4 task to complete while we did island hopping. It's quite fun (minus the rain) and I enjoy the ride and the sight seeing. I get to jump into the Lake of the Pregnant Maiden (a wise choice coz the water is very warm), fishing in the last island (I caught 2 fish) & lastly, soak in the sea water while waiting for the storm to go away so we can get back to land safe.

Here's the task that we need to do :
  1. Quiz challenge, Charade
  2. Hunt for 'Turtle Eggs' and Chicken Egg and cook the Egg in 15 mins.
  3. Find the fishing bait in the Lake of the Pregnant Maiden (Pulau Dayang Bunting)
  4. Fish as many fish as we can to win the challenge.

After we set foot on land again, we had our lunch and some light games that brings the kids out of everyone of us. The games that we played came with interesting name such as Harry Potter Race and Mad Bull Race. In the end, we are very happy and even enjoyed a few games of beach volleyball before the BBQ Dinner.

Last day : 31st Oct 07
We have to check out at 12pm and catch our flight back to KL at 2.15pm. So, I had a short morning to do what I want & I decided to go for a dip in the swimming pool with 2 other colleague before packing our stuff.
