We had our Christmas party last Dec 18 at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. It was supposed to start at 3pm, the party started around 4-4:30pm Filipino Time as usual. Some ice breaker were given to start the party.
First game, Scoop and Pass, materials: 1 bowl of cotton balls, 1 empty bowl to place the scooped cotton ballls and a plastic teaspoon. There are two players in a team, one will be blindfolded, the other player will guide the teammate in scooping and passing the cotton balls to the empty bowl. We lost in this game, but we were give P100 each for consolation prize.
Food was served to some of our co-workers, but mine took ages, until it was time for the second game. Hep Hep Hooray! This game was taken from the noontime show WoWoWEEE! I guess you know already how it is played. Just imagine doing this inside the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf and strangers watching you as you act it out. It was a blast! Everyone had a laugh.
After two games it was raffle time, the first batch of raffle prizes are at P100. Here comes the second batch of raffle prizes at P500. I won this time yahooo!
Third game was up, Baloon Blowing, two players in each team, I found it really hard to blow a baloon specially if your laughing at the same time. The first team who blows seven baloons wins the game. It was a tie between my team and another team, even if we saw their baloons not as big as ours. During this time you have to set aside your competitive attitude and just enjoy the games with your co-workers. We were given P300 each, the pot prize was actually P1200. but because it was a tie, we agreed to divide the prizes instead. With all the games and raflles still my food was nowhere in sight.
Now were down to our last game which is the Loop Relay, we needed only strings for this game. Knotting both ends of the string, the mechanics of the game is the string should pass through the body from head going down to the feet, next player will have the string pass first from the feet going up through the head. Keep doing the same mechanics up to the last player. First team who finishes first wins the game. If you are pressed for time, this game is for you, because it's really fast and easy to do. After this game, my energy is going down the drain, and guess what, still no sign of my food. It was time for the two major prizes, 1 small box and 1 big box, i didn't get any of the two major prizes hahahaha.... Speeches from our bosses and some picture taking. Until the party ended, my food was still not served, then I decided to talk to the manager and told her i'll just take it out. I just smiled and waited for my food :)
Board Topnotcher vs. "Just" a Board Passer - I am a board topnotcher myself, but it never really went in my head. What I don't understand is how not being a topnotcher gets in other people's heads... ...
