On the first day of my internship, I was told that we were going to Johor Bahru (JB) for a team outing the following week.
Wait. A trip to JB? With the company?
I was both surprised and excited at the same time.
As I found out, REFASH has a team outing every month to spend time together as a team and get to know one another better.
Personally, I've been to JB many times with friends and family, but this was definitely one of the most memorable trips I've had! Read on to find out what we did (and ate) throughout the day :)
We started the day early and took a shuttle train from Woodlands Train Checkpoint into JB (It's super efficient btw, 10/10 would recommend!!).
By the time we reached JB Checkpoint, we were starving. For our first stop, we headed to Soon Soon Bak Kut Teh - what's better than a bowl of hot soup to warm your belly (and soul) in the morning? We gobbled down our delicious bowl of Pork Rib Soup, which was filled with various yummy ingredients!
After our really satisfying breakfast, we found a nice cafe, 'Let's Eat', to chill (and recover from our intense food coma). The cafe had a beautiful oriental-style interior, which exuded a 1950s/1960s vibe, and we loved the ambience.
Girls being girls, we scoured the place and found a perfect OOTD spot, at the balcony on the second floor, where we took hundreds of insta-worthy photos!
Thanks to the coffee, we recovered from our food coma and were ready for our next activity, which was....
It was my first time playing laser tag at City Square mall and I was so excited! We played 2 games, which lasted 10 minutes each. After 20 minutes of running, screaming, shouting and banging into each other, we were exhausted and drenched in sweat. Still, it was a really fun experience!
Laser tag drained us physically. Next, we headed to 'Lost in JB' to challenge ourselves mentally with some escape room fun! I thought the themes were really cool and the staff working there were super friendly too!
After 1 hour of clue-solving (and asking for 1985712 hints), we finally 'escaped'!
I think we deserve some food after all those activities, don't you? We filled our empty tummies with tasty food and delicious iced teas from 'The Replacement Lodge & Kitchen'. The perfect way to end off a tiring day!
It was time to head back, we squeezed in a small shopping spree at City Square mall before taking our shuttle train back to Singapore.
This sums up our day trip to JB! It was so nice having the whole day to spend time and have fun with each other. Through this trip, I got to know everyone in the team a lot better and it really made me feel like I was a part of the team.
Looking forward to our next outing together!
