Office Camaraderie Through Bowling

Camaraderie outside the office leads to better production in the office. So let’s roll the ball!

Thanks god it’s Friday, let’s go bowling on Friday night!!


Many people may not know that bowling is a very old exercise. The bowling exercise has been a welcomed exercise for several years. Regarding the history of bowling, there have existed many forms of bowling, with the earliest dating back to ancient Egypt. Other instances where bowling was first seen can be traced to ancient Finland and Yemen, as well as in Germany around 300 A.D.

The first bowling game was brought to Taiwan by American soldier 60 years ago. It’s was a very popular exercise where the contestants can even win a sedan car if you score a perfect 300! For an added twist, Taiwanese players invented the “Sibala ball” which spins very quick like a UFO and can hit the pins harder so the bowler can score more. It’s awesome.

It’s important to maintain a disciplined office during the week so that we can better service our clients and provide quality products. Since we work so hard during the week, it’s important that we can enjoy the time we have off. To build a strong team, it’s also important that the members of the team get along and enjoy working together. For that reason, we like to have group activities that the members of the office can get out and “let their hair down” so to say. In doing so, we feel we are a more cohesive group that is better equipped to be productive and work together for a common goal during the week.

So we went to the “Asian Game” bowling hall which is a professional bowling hall, holding several professional tournaments. We divided into 2 teams, “O” team and “X” team. In this competition, the team with a total average greater than the rival will be the winner. Although team “O” scored more then team “X” before the 5th block, the game wasn’t over yet. Remember the story of the Turtle and the Hare? The turtle finally wins the race against the rabbit because the rabbit was too confident and went to sleep! So team “X” won the game in the end because they know the phrase “Never give up”!

It was a really fun evening and we all feel lucky that we have such good colleagues to hang out with on a Friday night. Just like in bowling, I’m certain that we will always be triumphant because we also live by the phrase “Never Give Up!”.

On a side note, we really love Mandy’s neice. She is really cute and looks just like the character “Boo” in Monsters, Inc. Judge for your self.
