It’s becoming a yearly tradition yet we were not prepared! Scouted for the venue on the spot. Good thing we found a table for us at… Fridays! 🙂
Attendees: Ms. Lolit, Ms. Grace, Ms. Donna, Ms. Minnie, Ms. Sonia, Leigh, Jane, Myself and the significant other. ❤
And for supper, I ordered the Black Calamari Pasta. ❤ We also tried exchanging gifts and three things, like every year. We had to bring Php 500 worth of any gift.
I received a black wallet from XOXO and I gave a Zara Perfume. We also won a bag of cheetos from the Three things which the boyfriend ate on his own. 😦
Until our next Christmas, Loves. ❤
It feels good to be able to spend a Christmas get together with my previous officemates. Never in my 5 years in BOC did it cross my mind that I would actually miss it. But my sentimental twin is acting up – and I am quite grateful for this.
A simple get together at Max’s on a busy Monday to start the week.
The whole group, the old dela costa people.
Some of the group pictures from the night.
White Long Sleeves Top from my previous boss, 3 kinds of peanut from Ms. Minns, A beauty brush set from Ms. Donns, a kultura pouch from Ms. Gracious, a colourful pouch from Ms. Lei, a navy blue pouch from Virge and a chocolate from Jane.
Thank you for the gifts, friends!
To all the faces I see for 2.5 years, I am grateful for the friendship, work ethics and all the learning I gained throughout the years. This is my first home and will always be a benchmark to all my succeeding ones.
I may not be vocal enough or it might just be my ego getting in the way of my tears but do know that I really will miss everyone and the habit of going to the office and bullying each of you and I will treasure all of my BOC experience.
BMO signing off. 🙂
I guess this shouldn’t be under the ‘everyday’ category as this doesn’t happen everyday. So, meet our President, the President and CEO of Bank of Commerce, Roberto Benares. We were all lucky to be graced by his presence. 😀

The disparity among the Operations and the Marketing Team cannot be kept any longer.
Issues, Faults and Concerns have been raised due to the increasing gap between the two teams.
This afternoon gathered all the Operations Officer, Marketing Officer and the Branch Managers.
The ties have been broken. We are called upon to settle our differences.
Budget has been released. Exceptions and Deviations resolved.
Praying for a prosperous and a bountiful 6 months ahead.
It’s a BSP Policy. A Bank employee should be rotated every five years to avoid fraudulent activities. And now that the 100 days is over, time to say goodbye again.
We ordered Buttered Shrimp, Calamares, Crabs in Oyster Sauce, Tempura and Sinigang na Tanigue. Oh my Seafood Right? Gahhh. And we all ate rice at 4 in the afternoon. What? Haha. Don’t judge. Who can resist?
Well, I’m glad that I didn’t listen to all the warnings and all the hearsays. They’ve been a lot of bad comments, but I do find her really friendly and accommodating and sincere. We’re both officers. But the other BOOs treat me like I’m a child since I’m the youngest officer but this one, she never made me feel any different.
Thank you and See you around, Ms Beng! :))
Would you have guessed that I have to attend 3 Christmas Parties where I work?
Branch Marketing Officer, Branch Manager and the Branch Operations Officer.
Area Christmas Party – which was held at Ayala, a small get together of all the branches in Makati.
The Second Christmas Party was for the whole Branch Banking Group. It will be attended by all the 123 branches of Bank of Commerce. BIG BLAH. The Makati Area was tasked to wear jeans and a red polo shirt – with the Red Hat – which looked a lot like a Magician’s Hat. Boohoo.
Disclaimer: They always want a pose – left and right much like a pageant pose. No. I’m not in it. I refuse – If I had a choice.
And the Branch Party itself. Our Color Coded Kris Kringle
Ms. Donna gave Rommel his Oven Toaster as he wished.
Rommel gave Jane her Hair Iron.
Jane gave me the 3 lipsticks I requested.
I gave Ms. Lolit her Kanebo Foundation
Ms Lolit gave Lei her MAC Lipstick
And finally, Lei gave Ms. Donns her steamer.
Merry Christmas from DCA Branch,
These are just day to day what-nots.
