Work Hard, Play Hard!

At Garage Society, we work hard….. which means we also deserve to play hard. Which is why I decided to take a quick dip over to the Philippines to escape the city life. Goodbye Hong Kong skyline, hello endless horizons!DW Blog 1Before we left, my travelling companion and roommate told me I’d fall in love with the Philippines, and did I ever! With some of the friendliest people in the world, and the sun always shining, all your worries instantly melt away. My destination was Bohol Island off of Cebu. So off I went to try to fit in as much as I can on my 4-day holiday on Bohol Island. Starting with some ATV action around the Chocolate Hills, then meeting some tarsier monkeys (Yoda lookalikes), then a boat trip and snorkelling around Balicasag Island and Virgin Island, and a zipline over the Loboc River; it all ended with a final day of just chilling on the beach sipping on coconut after coconut

And now I’m back in the Garage, feeling energetic and recharged. I highly recommend anyone who needs a quick dose of Vitamin D to head over to one of the many beachy destinations we have just next door to Hong Kong. Until my next adventure abroad, join me at Garage Society for our event with Sassy next Wednesday night at 6:30 pm. Come and gain some insight on how Elaine (our founder) and Maura (Sassy’s founder) achieved their business dreams; followed by tips from Willo (inspirational speaker) on how to start your own businesses! Tickets can be bought via Sassy Sale (http://www.sassyhongkong.com/youre-invited-sassy-talks-business-garage-society-whatsonhk/). See you all there!  xoxo DW

Author: Pin Cher, Career Coach

 

When you’re considering taking an enormous career leap, it’s easy to be controlled by fear, anxieties, and self-doubt and I wasn’t an exception from it.
