Filipino office Christmas parties are in a class all their own. I have attended Christmas parties all over the world and none of them come close to the sheer fiesta mentality that takes over any Pinoy office party! And for some reason, there are always games, prizes, contestsâ€¦ Last weekend I had to fly down to Bohol to host (together with my two brothers) a party for 40 or so employees of the family companies held at a small hotel on Alona Beach, Panglao. These are some of the photos for your amusement and for the rest of my family who live abroad and couldnâ€™t experience it first handâ€¦of course there was dancing on stage for various groups vying for the top prizeâ€¦
There were the maintenance crew gyrating to their version of the musculadosâ€¦
And how can we forget the grass skirts in a classic rendition of â€œpearly shellsâ€â€¦
And finally, the crowning of Ms. Cross-dresser 2005â€¦
The food was superbâ€¦4 lechon de leche Visayan style, 20 kilos of prawns, fried chicken, giant lapu-lapu, fruit salad and a LOT of beer!!! And tons of prizes, gifts and food baskets for all! I had a great time!!!
