Christmas is the season of love which is shown by sharing opportunities, concern, affection or even simple things. But nothing beats a Christmas with the presence of the significant people who painted colors in each of our lives.
Last Wednesday, December 14, Fligno and Logicbase celebrated another successful year in Elarvee, Upper Macasandig Cagayan de Oro City. It was themed as “Paskong Pinoy” which gave another twist for the employees since it is unusual for this generation to wear traditional clothes like “barong at saya”. But the challenge was accepted positively, when in fact millennials dominated the company.
Arriving at the venue, we noticed the transformation of all our ladies and the “gentlenerds”. The ladies wore their beautiful dresses, filipinianas, baro’t saya while looking stunning as they walked down the aisle going to their respective tables. The men followed wearing barong, kamisa de tsino and formal outfits as they looked as their noblest self.
The night was hosted by the former Miss Cagayan de Oro- the lovely Angel Carbajal who wore black and white long sleeved dress that emphasized the curves of her body. And also present were the most important people, the pioneers, the bosses who made the event possible: from Fligno Felix Chua II and Rafael Bergola; from Logicbase Mr. Bryan Joseph King, Mrs. Yannie Briones-King, and Jacob Joseph III Fuentes.
The party was started with a message from the President of Logicbase Bryan Joseph King. Then an inspirational message was given by the Chairman of Fligno Felix Chua II who became emotional while reminiscing the growth of the company and was grateful for everyone’s contribution. A presentation showing the company’s growth and future goals were then made by Fligno Director Rafael Bergola.
The night went well, as we played games that ignited the childish attitude of LBI and Fligno Employees which made everyone laugh the night away. There was also raffle draws with several prizes such as grocery items, gift certificates, wines, gadgets and the most awaited- two flat screen tvs. Special awards were then given to the employees who stood out in the different categories of their work.
After all the festivities, the most “important” part of the evening came- the FOOD. Which consisted of paskong pinoy meals with the amazing taste of lechon and other filipino dishes. Everyone enjoyed the food while chitchatting and reminiscing their time as employees until their improvement to the best version of themselves, sharing their most unforgettable experiences with the company.
To showcase the amazing voices and various talents of the employees, a Caroling Contest was conducted against six groups, who presented different approaches. Some employees had their intermission numbers, and some sung their hearts out melting the audience’s hearts. Indeed, Fligno and Logicbase have so much to show, whether in work or their hidden talents.
The night was concluded with the exchanging of gifts (with a twist) that made everyone happy not only by receiving the presents but by giving it as well. A picture taking was then coordinated to encase the memories of that night forever.
But everyone must not forget the true essence of celebrating this season, the birth of our Savior- Jesus Christ. Let love reign in our hearts. Merry Christmas and have a prosperous New Year higalas!
