My SMI Escapade (1st of Three Parts)

for our rides in going to Tampakan

Socsksargen bloggers, composed of beautiful people of all shapes and sizes, had a grand time last March 6, 2010 during the Discovery Tour sponsored by Sagittarius Mines, Inc.

Bloggers Orman, Avel, Donna, Gilbert, Mandi, Rose, Arnel, Tammy, Dimple, Cindy, Rabsky, Lito, Frances, Van and yours truly together with brilliant SMI people left Gensan for our destination at around 7:00 AM after converging beside the City Hall. On board several 4 x 4 vehicles, the group headed for Tampakan and made a quick stop over in Tupi to pick up Doc Remo and Xyr.

After an almost half hour very fine ride, the group reached our first destination, the SMI Competence Center located at Yakal corner talisay Sts in Tampakan, South Cotabato. Coffee, tea and other what have yous were offered to us as early morning snacks. SMI people present made sure that all our needs are addressed at once.

A brief and concise orientation process followed. Focal persons from different SMI departments were on hand to brief us on everything we need to know. We were afforded the chance to take a glimpse on what and how SMI is , its people, safety practices as well as their projects for environment and tribal groups existing within their area of jurisdiction.
