  • Rainy Day, Radiant Hearts

    Glenda Studio's Remarkable Team Building Getaway Date: August 17th, 2023 Location: Bo Cap Vang Campsite, outside Saigon, Vietnam Drenched in team spirit and eager anticipation, Glenda Studio embarked on a memorable team building escapade on August 17th. Nestled amidst the captivating tropical forests near Saigon, Vietnam, the Bo Cap Vang campsite played host to a day that was as eventful as it was enchanting. Even the rain that arrived after a sumptuous lunch couldn't put a damper on the vivaciousness of the activities that filled our morning. An Energetic Start to the Day As the sun's warm embrace greeted us, our team of artists and management members converged at the Bo Cap Vang campsite. With hearts full of excitement and unity, we kicked off the day with spirited relay races and an inflatable obstacle course that tested our agility and camaraderie. The morning sun painted the sky with shades of promise, setting the stage for an adventure-filled day. Silly Relays: Laughter in Motion The morning hours saw us diving headfirst into a series of delightfully silly relay races, ending in a total water fight. Each activity was a reminder that sometimes it's okay to embrace our inner child and revel in unadulterated laughter. As teammates cheered one another on, barriers seemed to melt away, giving way to shared joy and genuine connection. Mastering the Obstacle Course The inflatable obstacle course on the lake proved to be a thrilling highlight of the morning for the water lovers. Climbing, sliding, and navigating (and falling off) through the course was not only a test of physical prowess and balance, but also a testament to our collaborative spirit. The collective shouts of encouragement resonated through the air as we conquered each challenge, bolstering our unity and determination. A Hearty Lunch and Unforeseen Rain After a morning of energetic pursuits, a hearty lunch provided the perfect opportunity to recharge our energies. As we enjoyed a sumptuous meal and shared stories, the skies decided to join the festivities with a refreshing downpour- well it is rainy season! But did the rain deter us? Not in the slightest. Unexpected Showers and Unwavering Spirits The afternoon brought raindrops that danced upon our spirits. Instead of seeking shelter, we embraced the weather as an integral part of our adventure. Water pillow fights and paddle board races turned into a mesmerizing symphony of laughter and splashes. The rain transformed the landscape into a canvas of shared memories, reminding us that even the most unexpected elements can contribute to unforgettable moments. Poseidon Buffet: A Culinary Seafood Soiree As the sun dipped below the horizon, signaling the end of our day's escapade, there was one more treat in store for us. The Poseidon Buffet awaited, serving as the grand finale to our journey. Amidst a lavish spread of seafood delights, we continued to bond, sharing not only food and beer, but also the bonds of camaraderie that had grown stronger throughout the day. Glenda Studio's team building day at Bo Cap Vang campsite was a testament to the power of unity, shared laughter, and the ability to find joy in every moment. From spirited relay races and conquering the obstacle course to embracing the rain and indulging in a delectable buffet, the day was a crescendo of experiences that left our hearts full and our connections deeper. As we bid farewell to this remarkable adventure, we carried with us the memory of a rainy day turned radiant, a reminder that the best memories are often made when we face the unexpected with open hearts and unwavering spirits.

  • It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

    Even though we don't celebrate Thanksgiving here in Vietnam , the management and staff got into the holiday spirit by preparing the studio for Christmas. That involved throwing away the old worn out tree and ornaments , shopping at the Christmas shop district, decorating the tree, hanging the ornaments and wrapping boxes. It was fun watching the staff pick names out of the hat for the Secret Santa Gift. Hopefully everyone doesn't get bored with the holiday music playing around the clock!! Or with the IT Dept singing along with the carols at full blast!

  • Glenda does Gamescom Asia

    Last week Glenda Studio attended the Gamescom Asia 2022 conference in the amazing city of Singapore. It was our first conference and we didn't know what to expect. Needless to say it was an unforgettable experience. A special thank you to all the wonderful people we met and made us feel welcome. It was so nice to actually be able to mingle and socialize again post Covid, I'm sure no one will take these things for granted again. We were able to meet both talented colleagues in our art industry as well as hopefully future clients from all over Asia. We feel we have made good friends and partners in the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia and of course our home country, Vietnam. We received some wonderful guidance, saw lots of amazing artwork, played some fun games, learnt about other upcoming events, met incredible and fun people and left the event feeling inspired, motivated and looking forward to a successful year ahead. Hopefully next year someone will tell us about the after parties!!! We stayed near the fun and vibrate Haji Lane in the Arabian Quarter, ate some delicious dishes from Mexico, Turkey and India and visited the Historic Sultan Mosque. Our whirlwind visit ended up with a quick tour of the Marina Bay Sands complex and the lovely Gardens On The Bay. Our trip finally ended with sore feet and a juicy burger and shake at Shake Shack in the incredible Jewel at Changi Airport. Singapore... we already miss you and our new friends! See you next year... Keep in Touch!
