When we first started out, moving into our humble little office was an achievement in itself, much less growing into a team. But here we are now, jostling for elbow space and playing pranks on each other- and it is a milestone worth celebrating.
This August thus marked our very first annual company retreat. Taking our wanderlusting souls along in our pockets, we dived straight into the heart of enchanting Bali, away from the frenzies of our sunny city. Don’t get us wrong; we love our jobs and we’re immensely passionate about what we do. But like most individuals, the need to unclutter and seek a refreshed outlook on life every once in awhile keeps us whole, and we yearn to discover new things with our own eyes.
As days went on, we immersed ourselves in nature’s salty bath and basked in the summer heat, sharing stories and learning little details about each other. We rejoiced and endured as one. Climbing Mount Batur was a significant highlight of the trip; it was a first for most, and arduous to say the least. Nevertheless, we guided each other through every step, sharing jackets, jokes and words of encouragement. And when we reached the peak, half-numbed by the cold, we were overwhelmed by the view of the sunrise- treasured more so for the bonds that was strengthened between us.
From photographers to writers, cinematographers to designers, we celebrate this family by learning different crafts and achieving different milestones. As our company grows, the people grow with it. This thus marks the start of a new tradition, one we’ll look forward to in time to come.
