Experiencing India, An Auditor's Story

Having a job that I love is a blessing, but being able to travel and explore different places while working is beyond blessed. Internal auditing is a challenging job especially during actual audit fieldworks. However, CEVI has been very generous in sending its staff to different international exposures and trainings to grow in their fields and be the best at what they do. I will always be grateful to CEVI for the opporturnity to travel not just in Philippines but in other countries, meet new people, learn different cultures, and most of all expand my horizon as Internal Auditor.


My recent trip to Chennai, India was beyond my expectation. I have read that Chennai is the only city in South Asia and India to figure in the “52 places to go around the world” by The New York Times and named as one of the top ten cities in the world to visit in 2015 by Lonely Planet. Having stayed there for two weeks, I can say that New York Times and Lonely Planet weren't exaggerating, Chennai is indeed a wonderful city to visit. On the downside, food was a challenge for me in Chennai. I am not a fan of spicy foods, and almost anything there is very spicy. Nonetheless, I survived my 2-week stay and went home happy with lots of memories to share to my family and friends. And of course, I took home with me new learnings which I will surely share to my co-Internal Auditors. - Brenda Amor Castro, CEVI Internal Auditor
