Christmas around the World

Christmas maybe over but I just wanna share to everyone how SPMC (Southern Philippines Medical Center) celebrated it.  It was a busy month last December but the employees still managed to find time to enjoy some activities..

3rd Place – Headdress (ALASKA)

All employees were required to wear a head dress depending on which department they belong.  Each department represent different countries.  The design of the headdress should be somehow associated with their country.  There are 10 departments/countries: China, Japan, USA (Alaska in particular), Thailand, Egypt, India, Mexico, Brazil, France (Paris), and Africa.

1st Place – Parol Making Contest (INDIA)

There was also a PAROL making contest.  Each Parol should be designed according to their countries.   The lighting of the Parol started on the 1st day of Misa de Gallo.   You can definitely feel the spirit of Christmas in SPMC.  When you enter the hospital you will be welcomed by the 10 gorgeous PAROLS.  Congratulations to China, Alaska and India the 3rd, 2nd and 1st placers respectively.

     Another highlight is the Ward Decor Contest.   Each department / ward really prepared for this competition.  The designs were amazing that when you visit each department you would feel that you’re in a different country.   Everyone wanted to win but… like they always say.. only ONE shall emerge as VICTORIOUS..

Chinese Belen

After the judges have seen the different wards/departments two COUNTRIES stood out.  They got the same average score.  So, to break the tie the five judges voted on who they thought was most impressive ward.   It was a close fight between China and Alaska.

The judges have decided and they voted “ALASKA”.

Other activities that happened last December were Back2Back (Quartet and ICON: SPMC’s Singing Sensation) and Dance SHOWDOWN Season 2. WinnersQuartet (Admin – Janice, Francis, Lita & Jun)ICON: SPMC’s Singing Sensation (Admin – Francis)SHOWDOWN (Surgery Dept)
