Vanilla-Banana Herbalife Shake

Filed under: Food To Ponder, Shake's & Smoothies — Tags: , , , — scarletnii @ 4:38 am

One of my colleague in our company introduced us about Herbalife products.  Herbalife is another networking business about healthy products. I got interested and tried their Herbalife shakes which caters different flavors  such as  vanilla, strawberry, chocolate and more. I have tried their strawberry mixed with banana but it doesn’t taste that good. My choice among the flavors is vanilla mixed with banana. It’s  mouth watering and  I can’t resist zipping  until the last drop. And what’s good most is that it’s healthy .This is  my lunch meal when I’m in the office since I’m eager to lose weight.(heehehe)

Why not try this Herbalife shake. It’s good for your health and delicious at the same time.

CDO White Water Rafting Adventure- Advance Course

Filed under: Travel Experience — Tags: , , , , , — scarletnii @ 6:59 am

After a very tiresome and exhausting day during our team building activity last July 9, 2011. The Gearyseo team from CDO and Davao dive into another exciting adventure, the white water rafting advance level. I have been waiting this experience since I started working in CDO, yet it’s hard to find such time and group of people who are interested in this kind of adventure. So glad, time has come and I’m very much excited, happy and nervous at the same time. This was my first time to do rafting and automatically go into the advance course.

Ready or Not???

Orientation-Serious Mode

The group meets up around 5am in Divisoria, CDO and travelled to the rafting place for an hour then started the race around 8:30am. We are all set now with safety gears after that,  a short instruction from our guide. I’m definitely excited and nervous that time, I could see the heavy waves splashing with big stones.  I started screaming and shouting again (this is it!! whooooooooooooooo…) that’s all I can do just to release all my unexplainable feelings and thoughts.  Fear of water? Thumbs up, I’m the most coward because I don’t know how to swim. Good thing during that time, the guide said “if you’re away from the raft don’t try to swim just go with the flow of the water”. WEeeeeeeeee.. I’m happy to hear that because I don’t know how to swim but their was a life vest then.



We now started the first rapid, I thought all 21 rapids that were gonna pass through are of the same level but sad to say it’s not! Expect the most challenging and fearful rapids our guide has told us. In our raft were all 8 in the group including our guide. Most of us were first timers, but all are willing to experience that unusual adventure.  As we set for the trial rapids waves of cold water was starting to splash in our raft.  How could I explain my whole experience that day? Well, I’ll only highlight those unexpected event happened and that is when our raft turn and all of us in the group got drown.  Believe it or not! It was intentionally done by our guide just for fun? Crazy he was! But I admit it was incredibly fun never have I regretted that he did that (hahaa). The 21 rapids have its unique name, but I can only remember the elephant back rapid.


Nice one James..hehe

Here are the other group..go..go..Patet! it’s YOU…hahaa

During the advance course of rapids, I have not tried paddling; I have no guts  to try at all. Only our boys in the group did and the girls were cheering the paddlers. But when we’ve pass through the advance level, I’m now curious and eager to try paddling on the beginner’s rapids level. And guess what? I did! Adrenaline rush as I started doing happy I have done such achievement. I started paddling on the 15 rapids down to zero.

Weeeeeeeee…it’s me paddling on the right…hehehee

The experience was amazing, intense, exciting and nervous but when your in that moment, you could only say “this is it!..break a leg!” no left turn anymore. Expect the unexpected, your raft might flip, or you might even fall, expect those things to happen caused our group experienced that. And it was all worth it! This is what I get during that rafting adventure, if you really want to try such challenging adventure and you know that something bad might happen, don’t think about those possibilities during the raft but instead challenge your self to do your best, specially your strength and think what might happen with the group if you’re not responsible and brave enough to the best paddling that you can do.

Under the water falls 🙂

Were really having FUN!!!

A tap on my back  for being brave and over passing those different rapids. It was a cool adventure and thankful enough I’m with cool people from Gearyseo Davao team. By the way, guys they have extreme level of rafting, would you go for it? Me? Why not..hahaaa…it’s another and more suicidal experience to conquer.

Love it!! at last were done…love the adrenaline rush adventure 🙂

Seaside Bible Camp-Team Building Experience!

Filed under: Travel Experience — Tags: — scarletnii @ 12:59 am

July 9, 2011,  Sticky Media Solutions Inc. created another  team building activity, held at Seaside Bible Camp, Opol Cagayan De Oro City. The event was composed of three departments’ gearyseo, and valorebooks. Never did we expect that it was a burst of fun since that place was considered to be a sacred and solemn place. We are all band to say cursing words, no smoking, no smooching and all there 300 rules to follow while we stay in the place. And yes! We did it!


The team building activity was composed of indoor and outdoor activities. During the indoor activities it was just light and relaxed. But when it comes to our outdoor activities oh it was full of fun, shouting and screaming. Imagine, we did board walk, pick the donut, tag of war, volleyball using super big ball and lastly my most remarkable experience that day, the confidence coarse challenge. Yes, all our strength was tested, group coordination, strategies and most of all the fighting spirit was all kicking. I couldn’t imagine myself joining those challenges, all my strength was poured out. But so fulfilling! The spirit of unity was there, it inclined with the talk of an intern pastor before the activity started, that “unity is through humility”.

Volleyball with super ball 🙂

Everyday is unique gift and whatever opportunities that is open and free I’m grabbing it! It’s only happens once and I don’t want to miss it. Experience is the best part of living and I’m enduring all my experience that day. It might be that simple and ordinary activities but I super love it!

Hey, guys I can’t get over with my confidence coarse challenge. I want to embrace that feeling of fear again mixed up with excitement. You know what, when I feel that mixed emotions I’m definitely going crazy as if I’m out of this world..wahhhhhhhhhhhh…I  do shout, scream and jump before  I’ll do such level of adventure! It was definitely high but there was a protective harness being put in your body. The scenario was you need to jump from one place to another but you need to walk within the wood board and jump with 1 meter distance to the other side of the board. Whoooooohhhhhhh, a tense feeling was there, the board was so shaky that you need to balance well. Lucky me! I got to jump to the other side successfully. The feeling was awesome, relief and fulfilling. Fight your fears! The key is confidence..hehehe..

The board is really shaky! Relax..relax..

The other side of the board now. I made it! Yehey!

Going Down!!!..slowly, easy and dropped!

All in all the activity was a blast of fun. I may say it was exhausting, crazy, suicidal experience (hahha) but there are lessons I’ve learned from that team building activity. We may fear, fall and doubt life sometimes but what makes its amazing is that we keep on fighting. And that is why we end up winning those battles in life with FAITH! 🙂
