A couple of weekends ago, we had The GUIDON EB Transition Seminar. Here, the old EB turned over pertinent documents and ~ancient wisdom~ to the new EB. Also we had a lot of fun.
The day started in Rustan’s Katipunan, where Ceej and I picked up some groceries for the trip. Got some pasta for dinner as well as some snacks.
I rode with Pia, Pao-pao and Luther on the way to the house we rented in Tagaytay and we were singing some pretty sad shit on the way there. There are webcam videos to prove this.
We stopped for lunch at Rack’s in Paseo (which has some pretty awesome outlet stores). Here, we surprised our Design Executive Editor Shanice with a chocolate cake that had her favorite hashtag #somanyfeelings because it was her birthday the next day.
We proceeded to the house right after. The place itself was really pretty and homey and had some gudgud vibes. We chilled out for a while before starting the turnover.
The turnovers were bittersweet. Ceej turned over Features to Alex, and they kinda cried. Kinda lang. #FEELINGS
I got some pretty cute tokens from Angie, the previous g Magazine Editor. She gave me all the g files, as well as a pipe and hipster glasses, because I’m a hipster. I gave her a mixtape of songs that start with the letter G, because I’m puntastic like that.
It was also at TranSem where Ceej and I made our “Busy” video, which I’m really proud of because we played the perfect fake couple and it’s not half bad for a video shot and edited in less than 12 hours.
I also helped Ceej cook dinner (as shown in the video), which was really yummy. Her puttanesca recipe is simply luverly.
We had some really fun group dynamics care of Mikee, last year’s Training & Development Manager. The new EB now has some cryptic lines to keep us going throughout the year, like “Remember the nails,” or “Remember the Lego.” Hehe. I can’t explain, ’cause izzasecret.
There was another GD which involved forming a circle of people sitting on each other’s laps. It was super fun. There are no pictures because we were all too busy trying not to fall. Haha.
After we finished all the activities, they brought out the drinks and the New EB celebrated with a champagne toast.
This then developed into some really amazing karaoke by Jose Cua, which was nothing short of amazing.
All in all, it was a great way for the new EB to start the year working together and the old EB to close their year. Stay tuned. I’ll definitely be blogging about EB 2012-2013′s crazy Baguio PlanSem later this week.
In the meantime, here’s our first group picture ever (sans Kara and JA).
