AIM Student's Christmas Party

Last Friday, December 7, AIM held the Student's Christmas Party at the Zen Garden. The very capable Master in Management (MM) folks were the ones in charge of throwing the party and they did a very good job.

The party's theme was "Mahiwagang Paskong Pinoy" which roughly translates to "Enchanted Filipino Christmas." As the theme suggests, Filipiniana or Filipino-inspired costumes were encouraged to be worn. It was nice to see non-Filipinos wear the Barong Tagalog and Camiza DeChino for a more casual look. I sported a more contemporary look-- a Magdalo Group-inspired get-up. (I'll post pictures and videos as soon as I get them from our designated photographers).

I performed with the band that kicked off the program. While our performance wasn't so perfect, we did have fun playing Christmas songs like "All I Want for Christmas is You" and "Pasko na Sinta Ko," a Filipino Christmas song.

There were lots of giveaways and games. It's good the organizers were able to get lots of sponsors for the prizes. An Apple iPod, tons of trips and hotel accommodations and gidt certificates were raffled off. Heck, I even got the chance to take home gift certificates from Julie's Bakeshop. :P

We'll have our Christmas Break after next week so the Chirstmas Party is a nice kick-off towards that. (Of course, we need to hurdle the dreaded Financial Management and Operations Management exams first!)
