Shots of laughter and nuggets of life lessons were the order of the day during the fun pilot session of DILG Pampanga's K K P BA? (Online Kapehan, Kwentong Pandemya, at iBA Pa) launched on August 20, 2020.
Even with the current work-from-home set-up , the Provincial Office still found a way to get everyone together in the same room albeit virtually. The regular agenda of reports and deadlines was replaced with a two-hour program of motivational talk, sharing, kamustahan and interactive games that revealed the many talents of DILG Pampanga personnel. The online get-together was capped off with everyone singing along to the tune of Umagang Kay Ganda.
PD Myrvi Apostol-Fabia, in her message, acknowledged the importance of keeping a healthy work/life balance especially during these times. She said that a couple of hours to de-stress and unwind through an online kapehan is a necessary investment to help the team reset and refocus.
"The current pandemic is really taking a toll on people's mental health which is why we need this kind of activity once in a while to ease some of the pressure and remind everyone that we have each other."
