CCK Year End Special 2018

- Juan Alejandro Josue

To celebrate the growth, the formation of the new departments, and the establishment of the company’s new Pangasinan Branch, CCK hosted its Year-end Party last November 30, 2018 in 500 Shaw Zentrum’s Events Pavilion.All employees who contributed to the company’s improving success were invited along with their family members. CCK President Shacho Sumiyuki Kawahara was also present in the event where he was seen gleefully interacting with other employees and tapping his feet to the beat of contemporary party music.

The event kicked off with the “Disney Sing, Dance and Act” competition where five groups from CCK’s different departments competed to showcase their artistic talents. CCK Pangasinan opened with a Little Mermaid themed dance with an amazing Ursula cosplay to boot. The Contact Center followed with a gyrating Hawaiin Hula performance much to the delight of the audience. The next performers were from the Data Entry Department whose performance was separated into three acts. The first one was a Beauty and the Beast inspired number where the performers lip-synced the title song accompanied with theatrical movements.

The next act was a dance number to the tune of famous song mashups that made the guests erupt with laughter. For the final act, they had one of their members sing “Walang Iba” by Ezra Band which was met with cheers. The penultimate group from the MLD channeled their inner gleek through a musical performance while portraying as Disney villains. The dashing gentlemen from the IT Department were the last to perform and made men and women alike swoon with their acoustic renditions. Ultimately, MLD’s astonishing musical performance won the judges over. They took home cash prizes and bragging rights whenever they bumped into each other in the hallway.

Guests were then treated to an all-you-can-eat buffet of Filipino food and a beverage station which was tended by bartenders who could create alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks for them or let them experiment and create an original concoction. Various prizes like home appliances and gym mats were also given away with the most coveted prize being a 50-inch Smart TV which was won by an employee from CCK Pangasinan. Before the event ended, the president gave an appreciation speech thanking all the employees for their hard work. After the speech, the lights got dim and changed from white into a blinking assortment of colors. With drinks on their hands, everybody started dancing and enjoyed themselves with people they consider their second family.
