* To highlight the cafe's first year in its current location (formerly Arla Diner) and commemorate the official start of our new company (from Cafe Antonio Coffee Corp. to Cafe Antonio Small Town Coffee Brewers Inc.), we went to San Pablo City for a half-day team building session with my father, Ptr. Philip Flores (whom we all simply call, Pop) at the Church of Christ Disciples function hall. The morning began with a light breakfast and started with interactive exercises that developed our teamwork, cooperation, and trust and loyalty with one another. The staff was divided into two groups during the activities. We ended the session by listing down 5 things we learned from the workshop. Pop closed the team building activity with a short study of the Word.
* After the team building, the staff went to Hap Chan in Ultimart for lunch and celebrated our barista, Elmer's 26th birthday.
