Not too long ago, we had our offsite meeting held at Carpe Diem Orchard Home and we had a great time! Tucked away at a quiet spot in Rawang, we had a weekend of absolute tranquillity and fun. This spot is quite a hidden gem and if you want to plan a staycation away from the city, this retreat can only be booked online and strictly no walk-ins!
Upon arrival, we were greeted by the caretakers of Carpe Diem and the smile on their faces hinted that our time here would be a great one. After the keys were passed on to us and the indemnity form was signed, we could hardly wait to take a peek at our rooms.
To our surprise, the rooms were so spacious and well kept. We couldn’t be any more excited to explore around the place but first, team offsite meeting!
Being in operations for almost 2 good years, the team finally had time to put aside all the hustle and come together for GoCar’s vision and mission brainstorm session. Where we are today is only achievable by being aligned as a team, with the same goal to improve the urban mobility landscape in Malaysia. Want to know more about GoCar’s vision and mission statement? Stay tuned!
After a great session of team meeting, it was time for dinner. Barbeque was on the menu and as we’re getting everything ready for barbequing, the ever helpful caretakers helped us set up the pit in no time. It didn’t take long for dinner to be served, and it was a great time of fun and laughter. If you were wondering where we got our ingredients from, the NSK Hypermarket located less than 5 minutes away is your one-stop place.
If you’re looking for a breezy and quiet spot to read a book or just to siesta, the hammock outside the common area is where you can savour your moment of solitude. Alternately, you can spend the afternoon with the geese and chicken at the animal enclosure down the road from the main chalet. Be warned, the geese are extremely welcoming with their loud greetings.
A night at Carpe Diem was just the kind of rest we need. Sleeping on clean comfy sheets and waking up to the sunshine are the little things in life that put a smile on your face.
