So today I went over to TTDI Plaza (not before getting lost ... again) after work to support my colleagues at this Heineken event where the winning team gets a trip to Krabi. I was prepared to just sit there, have a couple of beers and cheer/laugh at my colleagues.
Turns out that there was a last minute pull out and I had to fill in the spot for the third and final member, wtf.
Reluctant at first because I thought it was a football-related game but turns out that it wasn't. Divided into three sets, the first game had you directing a truck to a store to deliver Heineken, the 2nd had you doing a Mexican wave (virtually) and the 3rd, you had to catch a bottle sliding across the bar.
So we played the first round.. selamba je... just for fun right?
When we ended up in the top 4 teams out of 10, the competitive streak in me went into overfriggingdrive. That's a 1 in 4 chance of winning a free, 5 day 4 night, VIP trip to Krabi!! Sun sea sand and beer!!
ZOMG. OK MUST FOKUS.
My heart was beating in the semifinal and I was really annoying to my teammates. I kept screaming, cheering, jumping around the console, freaking out ... but it worked and we made it to the finals!!
We lost by 3 seconds to a team of bloggers because Adrian dropped three of his bottles in the last and final set. Omg nailbiting stuff for real!! *shoots death stare at boss*
You should have seen Didi's and my face when we returned to our table. Didi was red and I was so hot I had to remove my jacket. And Adrian suffered our wrath mwahahahaha.
SIGH. So close yet ... so faaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaarrrrr. I hate being second. Is the worst position to finish!
Later on the drive home, I got a text from boss.
"Sorry guys, well do krabi as company trip. :)"
I'll hold you to that Adrian!! :P
Oh my sincerest congrats to the winning team. I may be competitive but I'm no sore loser. Alco all arouuuund!
