Working can be tiring.

Playing is fun.


I have written quite a number of articles based on my studies and research here. And it’s good that I always get responses from my readers. However, I have decided to take a break! As a grandmother like me, I like to write, but you know, age is catching up on me. I still feel energetic though, but sometimes, I have to rest.

Anyway, I’m joining my son in his teambuilding singapore indoor event this week. I’m not working in his company, but he invites me along because he would like to let me see how’s he’s doing at work, plus its time for family participation as well.

Through my work in the science filed, I hardly have time for all these activities. My team back then are teachers, are researchers, and mostly, my students. Oh wait, I’m from the old era where there is no Facebook. hence, my students and friends are not in the hundreds, but they are close to me. Since we are so close, we don’t really go for team building events.

So what am I expecting this week? I’m not really sure.

From what my son told me, there will be activities that involve young adults around 20 over years old, and oldies like me as well. When I heard that, oh yes, that’s good! I guess there won’t be too many physical activities which I have to sit out! I would prefer much more meaningful games which I can interact with everyone.

Speaking of that, I remember seeing team building games being held that requires you to run all over Singapore. It’s like the amazing race TV show. You have to run to different places in Singapore, from the east to the west and so on. When I look at the people in the team, they seems to have fun. But when I look at the oldest member in the team, he looks tired.

So I guess this kind of races are more suitable for young fresh grads who have lots of energy to play with. So if I were younger, I don’t mind running around!

Alright, I will let you guys know how my team event goes!
