It was time again for the annual SCB Christmas Party. However, this year's party was more low-keyed compared to the previous years. For one, the prizes were not as grand but they did not scrimp on the food and the open bar. Party was held at the PICC Forum Food was catered by Via Mare. Our table was also very nicely placed. Our seats were preassigned and it was a nice surprise to see that we're seated behind the CEO table, near the stage exactly in the middle.
Contrary to what other people think, I just proved that pregnant women are not necessarily lucky in raffle prizes. They gave away 100 winners of 1000 pesos, 20 winners of 5000 pesos, 5 winners of 10000 pesos, 1 winner of 20000 pesos, 1 winner of 30000 and 1 winner of 50000 and I did not win any of those. There were minor appliance prizes and I didn't win any of that too! Oh well.
We didn't have trip prizes this year (we used to have prizes for trip to the US, Europe, Australia etc) probably due to the economic crisis and we somehow understood that. It was fun though even if I was not able to join my team in the round of drinks (the tequila shots just keep on coming) and the dancing. I think my baby enjoyed it though as he kept on kicking during the live band performance.
