Long weekend!! ❤
Because it’s Bonifacio Day on November 30, Monday will be a holiday and it will be a long weekend. So for us Chiro, (specifically the Training and Expansion Committee) took the chance to schedule the Trainor’s Training Course (TTC) for some/selected ldrs from around Luzon. TTC is the training for those leaders who would like to be a trainor. The trainors are the one who handles trainings of the Chiro leaders in the Philippines.
Here’s the promotional poster. 🙂
The venue is in Bahay SCAn Tagaytay, it was a perfect place specially for this season you can really feel the Tagaytay breeze. Oh btw, Tagaytay is the 2nd highest town/city in the Philippines, next to Baguio. It was a very conducive place to learn, plus the very cool weather.
You really need a jacket when you will go out at night, unless you want to have a flu just like what happened to me. heheheh 🙂 I forgot to bring my jacket, so I just borrow a shawl, but it’s not enough to brace myself from the breeze. That’s why after the night out, my flu started to develop.
Me and Nay Badette (we call her nay, not because she’s senior than us, but because she stand as our ‘nanay’, tagasaway, tagasita kapag may mali na kame ginagawa) travel to Tagaytay via van and bus on Saturday morning at about 5:30 am, we arrived at the venue past 9am. Habang byahe no? Traffic eh and because it’s a long weekend, many workers in the city took the chance to go home. And luckily we are already a trainor, so no pressure (secret lang ) to arrive for the call time, hehehe 🙂 That’s one of the perks!
At night, when Olan (one of the trainors) is on his way to Tagaytay (habol lang sya, he has classes kasi that day) he sends us a shocking news, there’s an accident nearby, I think it was 4 or 5 km away from the venue; that’s why it took him hours to get to the venue. The accident clogged the highway, and because it was really a fatal accident between a bus and a truck; cars and buses need to give way to the number of ambulance that is needed in the scene. As what Olan saw , he said that the driver of both vehicle and conductor is DOS and there are also some bus passenger that is DOS. I’d like to share this story, because if you are reading this, please take some time to say a little prayer for the victims. Thank you.
So to give you a glimpse of what the participants did during the 3 day training, here’s some pictures and day to day recap. I cannot disclose the exact activities and sessions they had because it’s confidential, only TTC participants should know it. 😛

New Trainor’s commitment setting
During the 2nd night, we (just the trainor’s) had this night out meeting at The Lake District
It was nice and quiet place for meeting. We plan to have the seat on the second floor for the view, but because they have advanced seat reservation, it was fully booked. So we settled on the ground floor with this long table fit for us.
The foods and drinks are good and the price is reasonable. Hehehe. 😀

I really LOVE the Tagaytay weather! ❤ And as I write this article, I am missing the Tagaytay breeze. Hoping I could come back there to relax and unwind. (-.-)
