Visiting our friends in Cebu

Teaming is an important part of Tiqqe. We like to work distributed, where the talent is, but sometimes you need to meet in person to develop a really close relationship. That’s why we decided to move the office to Cebu in the Philippines for one week to meet our friends.

We took off from Copenhagen the 2:nd of March for Cebu. The best travel route included a night in Hong Kong, which is an awesome city. We had an evening in Hong Kong where we visited a nice Italian restaurant for a team dinner. Also managed to squeeze in Victoria Peak, the best place to have an overlook of Hong Kong. Besides great food and scenery, the formula 1 taxi drivers was also an interesting experience.

When away from your family, you should stay at a nice place – that’s part of a nice workplace we believe. We all stayed at the SAS Radison Hotel in Cebu which is an amazing 5 start hotel with all the comforts you need. Great food, nice gym and of course clear blue pools for relaxation.

Our partner, Arcanys, office is located in the centre of Cebu. In Cebu, you start working around noon and work until midnight so we adopted their schedule and had time for relaxation in the morning. We enjoyed a warm welcoming from our friends and it was great to meet all the people in person. Everything was prepared so we were quickly split into the teams we operate in on a daily basis.

The week included a lot of hard work but also time for dinners, teaming activities and fun. A couple of guys from Sweden tried out the local delicacy balut and survived.
