What makes Team East Asia (comprised of Team Philippines, Team Singapore and Team Indonesia) different is that we have gone through a regional finals. The East Asia Finals of Schneider Electric’s Go Green in the City was held last May 15 – 17, 2013 in Jakarta, Indonesia.
Schneider Electric Philippines flew us to Indonesia in style via Singapore Airlines.
We had to stop by Singapore before we headed to Indonesia. It was nice getting to walk on Singaporean ground (again) for a bit 😀 Ms. Gerilyn Baltan of Scheneider Electric Philippines was with us on our trip to Jakarta.
Considering that I wasn’t able to sleep prior to the flight, I was generally awake the entire flight. I made the most out of the perks of being in an SQ flight. Hahaha! That includes food and drink. I even had a sip of Chardonnay.
Ms. Arifa Lubis of Schneider Electric Indonesia welcomed us upon our arrival. The first new set of friends we made were from Team Vietnam.
We then headed to Hotel Mulia where all the participants stayed. I kind of tested the feel of the bed before heading to the lobby to meet up for dinner. >:))))
Schneider Electric hosted a welcome dinner Kembang Goela. I say that this was when “the click” happened. We sat with Team Malaysia and it just snowballed after that. 🙂 I can’t explain it but we just got along so quickly. 😉
We were then brought back to the hotel. Team Philippines prepped until around 2 am.
P.S. I was not mad but I was just a little groggy because of the lack of sleep! :)))))
