Last night, June 29th, the company I am working for, NCO RMH Teleservices Inc. celebrated its 5th year anniversary at the AFP Theater. The theme was like MTV Video Music Awards, where several departments prepared a piece like an actual music video and will then award some recognitions like Male and Female Star of the Night, Best Male and Female Performance, Crowd Choice Award, Best Director and Best Video. I was actually a bit hesitant to join at first because I don’t go to office parties that much, but when I found out that a friend of mine Gelli Victor of RX 93.1 will be the host again and this time with MYX VJ and also RX jock Igi Guerrero, I decided to go.
I first went to the office around 8pm to meet up with two of my officemates Mayet and Paul. We then took the shuttle the company provided to take us to the venue. When we arrived at the AFP theater, the program had already started. But before going inside the theater, we had our dinner first. While munching on some pasta, fresh lumpia and something else I forgot, Oliver, a QA approached and asked me if I can assist in helping our team with the props for the performance since I’m wearing black. Since Mayet already volunteered for that, I agreed. So after dinner, off we went to the backstage and took charge of the props with two other volunteers.

I didn’t get to take a picture of our team’s actual performance on stage because I myself is on the stage assisting on the props. But it was a fun performance! A possible Crowd Choice winner, since a lot from the audience enjoyed and cheered for it. After the applause and after putting back the props on its proper place, I then went backstage to see Gelli and Igi to say hi. Gelli was surprised to see me! She forgot that I am working for NCO, because the last time she hosted for us was last December for the company’s Christmas Party. She also mentioned that I didn’t get to visit them at the station anymore, like before. The last time I went there with some friends was December last year. I just told her that we’ll find time to drop by soon.

After the photo op with them, Mayet and I finally went to where our friends are. And the photo op continues! Here are some of the shots we took on that fun night:
and my favorite, a shot RJ took:
And since we all got busy with the seemingly endless photo op, I didn’t got to witness the announcements of some winners. But my ex-boss Tam told me that we won for the Best Male Performance. I made it on time for the announcement for Crowd Choice award, and our team won! Well, it’s actually a triple tie since Amazon and Xbox also won. After that, the final award for the night was given, the Best Director and the Best Music Video which was both won by the Xbox team! Sayang, but it’s ok, we still have the title for two consecutive years winner in the dance competition anyway. The hosts Gelli, Igi and Laila chikadora finally said goodbye and introduced the highlight of the night, Kamikazee and Parokya Ni Edgar! Kamikazee played first and we all enjoyed it! The vocalist Jay is so funny! After that, it’s PNE’s turn to rock the night! It was equally good! Never fails to make the crowd go wild. Jay even joined Parokya and did three songs with them, galeng! Here are some of the shots I took of them:
After getting stoned with some rockin’ music, it’s time to drink and dance the night away! But since most of us are already tired, we didn’t stayed longer to drink and dance. Around 330am, I went home with some friends while the AFP theater is still buzzing with laughters and banging with the sound of a band. This is probably the most fun office party I joined! 😉
