Stress has reigned in the atmosphere at work for so long. Laboratory activities and paper works have been piling up non-stop. All of us obviously needed a breather. Hence, our team building activity has become one of the most highly anticipated events in our department. This year, we had the great opportunity to hold it at Eagle Point Resort in Mabini, Batangas from August 2 to 4, 2017.
The National Tuberculosis Reference Laboratory (NTRL), the department I work under, celebrates the anniversary of its inauguration once every five years; and this year, it has remained standing strong for a decade and half. As it rejoices for its 15th birthday, NTRL has assigned the unit I belong to, the Laboratory Services Unit (LSU), to organize the programme (together with the Program Support and Quality Management or PSQM Unit) and to physically arrange the venue. The party was held at four in the afternoon on 22 March 2017 inside the NTRL Courtyard.
