Personal Ability Development (PAD) Foundation, Inc. is a non-stock and non-profit organization under the N.T. Group of Companies. Established in 2007, it is accredited by TESDA for Technical and Vocational Education and Training (TVET) to provide Japanese language training. PAD Foundation conducts classroom-based lessons to develop speaking, reading, writing, and listening skills. Review classes for Japanese Language Proficiency Test (JLPT) are also offered. Aside from textbooks, audio-visual and other reading materials are also available for the trainees’ use.
While the cool December breeze is yet to be felt, PAD staff and faculty seized the chance to enjoy a weekend getaway to the beach.
Approximately 3-hour drive away from Manila, the province of Batangas takes pride in their beautiful waters, which attracts local and foreign tourists alike.
This year, PAD employees enjoyed their overnight stay at Kabayan Beach Resort in Laiya, Batangas last December 7 & 8, 2018. Just like any other company outing, fun games liven up the mood and prizes were given away to lucky participants. After a day of activities, a sumptous meal was served to replenish everyone's energy. The night grew deeper, but the mood was never somber, as the merriment continued after sunset.
Before heading back home, the group did not miss the chance to try one of Batangas' specialty food: Lomi.
We look forward to more fun games, more exciting prizes, more delicious food, and more fun memories in 2019!
