Parties to end 2010
What better way to end the Year of the Tiger 2010 than to hold parties to usher the new year of the Metal Rabbit, 2011, not just with chic and style, butwith a bang!
The Bacolod Doctor’s Hospital did just that andmarked its 60th anniversary at the Pavilion, recently, attended by 450 medical staff and hospital administration personnel.
Each hospital department came up with individual theme presentations with Snow White and the Seven Dwarves and Elves, Santa Claus and the Reindeers, and another group as tribesmen.
The departments presented the Lion King and the Safari, Broadway dance musicale, and pop and current musical genre.
Best costume award was bagged byEva Tecson with her magnificent Lady Gaga look, while a male nurse who came as a Christmas tree also won a similar prize.
With owner couple Reynaldo and Mary Grace Eusebio present, about 160 employees and business partners of the Galleon Enterprises wore futuristic-inspired costumes for a yuletide gathering at Sugarland Hotel, Bacolod.
Employees from 20 branches in Negros and Cebu attended. Five employees were named best in costumes while the North Area carted away with the best presentation prize.

Kudos to the Bago City government under the stewardship of Mayor Ramon “Monet” Torres and Vice Mayor Nicholas “Nick” Yulo for successfully staging its third edition of the “Lights of Bago” to greet the new year with fireworks display.
The 15-minute fireworks and splendid pyrotechnics presentation awed not just the Bagoeños but also local tourists who witnessed the event.
We’ll be glad to see more of that next year.*
