When I first saw the email, I must say I was shocked. Office teambuilding, over an entire weekend?!?! The whole thing was very mysterious at first, and none of us were told where we were going or what the activities would be until the very day.
No wonder. The first night, we were told to walk on fire.
To be honest, I was somewhat curious but I definitely didn’t feel that it was ever something that I had always wanted to do… I had heard that it was a magical experience, “mind over matter” and everything, but that didn’t stop me from feeling the fiery hot pieces of blazing wood sear right through my foot soles. I actually ended up with four mini blisters!! 😦
Biggest takeaway? Fire is HOT :p
The rest of the weekend was spent in Macau, where we went on a treasure hunt (similar to the Amazing Race), got to know each other better and drank/gambled at night. All that “work” has left me in ruins on this weary Monday morning…

Me: no, i was okay, how about u?
HR lady: come back HK meeting billows
HR lady: Mary & me spew
