Last night we had our RX Christmas party and it’s the best one we’ve had in a looong time, perhaps even of all time. For some strange reason, everyone really prepared for the xmas presentation, which we usually just do for the sake of complying, with very little preparation and even less inspiration. But this year, each team really put their hearts and minds into it, without even knowing that the others were also stepping up their game. So the presentations, which are usually comprised of a parade of embarrassments, all turned out better than what anyone ever expected. Even the bosses were shocked at how much everyone prepared. The jocks were divided into two teams: Prod1 headed by Rico Robles, with Delamar, Francesca, Danielle, Gelli, and Sandy, and Prod2 headed by Christi, with Gino, Tom, Hazel, Cerah, and myself. They had such a hard time awarding the best presentation, that for the first time, they decided to give a cash prize instead! Our team lost, but we made it as a finalist. Plus, for the first time in my many years in RX, I won as best male performer, ehem, ehem. But as Jude Rocha tweeted earlier, we can’t really give details or post the more revealing photos because it involved some “cross-dressing” and “nudity”. If there’s anything RX people know how to do is to party hard!
Plus, our bosses gave us some really nice surprises which got everyone jumping up and down for joy! Let’s just say, everyone felt so blessed for having such a good year despite the economic crunch. It’s been a while since we got so excited and deliriously happy, like kids who got what they wanted from Santa on Christmas morning. So to our bosses: THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts! :-)
It was just a feel-good night for us, something we all really needed. Management appreciated the team, and the team appreciated the bosses. There was a lot of love going around. I guess I don’t say it often enough, but I love my job and I feel great that I’m part of a GREAT radio team!
P.S. The day after, we had a stick-on at Bonifacio High Street and we were all either hungover, sleep-deprived, or both, but we trooped to work, like the happy soldiers that we are. To give you a sneak peek of our team’s performance, here’s a video @cherrythegreat took while we were monkeying around.
