"Work Hard, Play Hard!"

Allow me to share you a glimpse of my experience when I was in Bali working on a wedding. Wait, wait…. Work? Wedding? Yes, you read it right. In addition to my job as an Account Executive at Trendreader, I am also one of the wedding organizer crew in Excellent Wedding Organizer.
It's not my first time going to Bali, but it's certainly the first time on going to Bali for work. So, let us begin. Prior to the departure, the team has discussed and planned on the event. With principles of work hard and play hard, we planned for a fellowship, gathering and a trip with the team after getting the job done. Not just for fun actually, but it's also to strengthen the bond among the team member. Before we go to the fellowship, let's talk about the job first. It was fun! Thank God, the event was a success. The weather was great and the hotel and vendors were well-cooperated. The reception was held on the coast of the beach. Thus, we didn't wear formal shirt, blazer, suit, or shoes as usual, but we wore more casual clothes, such as beach shirt and short for men, and casual dress for the ladies.
At the end of the day, the bride and groom, as well as their families continued the day to an after party at Potato Head, while we chose to rest. Nevertheless, we remained to help in arranging their transportation to Potato Head.
On the next day, we had a breakfast with the bride and groom (most certainly remembered to take a photo with them), checked out from the hotel and had lunch, as well as checked in to the hotel where we would be staying in the afternoon.
Now, let us begin with the real fun! On the next day, we left at 7:30 AM and headed to Bali Marine Walk on Jl. By Pass Ngurah Rai. As we got to the destination, we gathered and were briefed and were given several instructions by Bali Marine Walk staff on the activities that would be done. Afterward, we left by boat, hit the water once we reached to the spot for a marine walk. Some of us chose for snorkeling around the area while waiting for the turn for the marine walk.
After the Marine Walk, we had lunch and were given two options for the next activity, which were having an adventure by riding in a boat or cycling around the village. Meanwhile, I preferred to cycle around the village. Really tiring and exhausted, but it surely paid-off! What a total fun.
Finally, on our last day in Bali before returning to Jakarta, some of us strolled around the Kuta Beach after breakfast and sought for the one thing that cannot be missed when going to Bali: temporary tattoo! Ha!
Well, that's a wrap! Back to the office, to the daily routine and meeting. See you on the next "trip"!
