Christmas Party

Christmas is just around the corner. It is only 13 days to go. Christmas party is one of the traditional ways to celebrate this holiday season. On December 10, we held our party. Highlights of the event were Miss Produ 2011, announcement of parol-making contest (made of recycled materials), games and raffles, and most of all food and drinks.
Parol-Making Contest - I was happy enough, because one of the major prizes goes to our group. Yes, we won the contest! Parols were judged based on uniqueness, creativity and durability. Visit Momayes Diary for the other entries.

Miss Produ 2011 This is the first time to held this type of contest in my 9 years of celebrating Christmas Party in our company. Contestants were not ladies but gentlemen (hahaha). Unfortunately our group doesn’t have a representative. I was chosen to be one of the judges and have the opportunity to ask questions during the Q&A portion.

 We must remember that this season, we are not celebrating for fun but we do this in the essence of our JESUS CHRIST'S birth.
Our team, QA Laboratory Department also held our annual Christmas Party. Simple yet fun. (Visit Momayes Diary for details)

Our parol was purchased by one of our workmates and will be submitted by her son in their school.
