Annual Staff Tour 2013 – Munnar
After an exciting year of activities and events, We the family of QMIS needed time to relax as mentioned rightly “a well rested field always yields in bounty”. As a token of love and reward to us ,our Management has sanctioned a two days wonderful trip to Munnar on the 5th and 6th of May 2013. A team of 12 staff members with their kids started their journey on 5th of May at 5.00am. Although many of us have visited the spot earlier, they cherished this trip much as this time it was made special by their friends. Enroute to Munnar not only gave us a visual treat but also wonderful memories to hold dear forever. Our Team reached The Blue Mount Regalia cottage at noon after several view spots to relish the nature and capturing the scenic beauty. The luxurious decked cottage added the excitement of the team. Despite of hot water arrangement by the cottage, the team greatly enjoyed the Chill breeze which refreshed them. After the yummy lunch at Saravana Bavan the Team visited Hydel park and enjoyed the flower show. Without much cloy, their photo session continued at the park and came to a halt with the park's closure hours. That Dark Night glowed with sparks as we set camp fire and made our stay more memorable. Expression of wonderful skills of the team set a burst of laughter which was reverberating the night jungle around us. The next day started with a real treat for our tongue to taste various keralite delicacies Puttu, thaengaai paal, aapam and kadalai kari. Team moved to maduaptti dam and stopped at elephant show spot. The show tempted us to take a ride on the elephant which was abandoned on seeing the crowd. Our next spot was at Madupatti dam and lake. Team went on boating to enjoy the sight of elephant family in the jungle. The echo point tested our decibels. After loading our minds with memories we bagged with souvenirs from Munnar, team started reroute to Madurai at 2.30pm on the 6th of May 2013 and reached at 9.00pm.
