The 2nd edition of the Trick or Treat (otherwise known as the SPi Family Day, albeit informally) went so well last October 28, 2006 that the Employee Relations have decided to do it on this scale every year. The parents and their kids were all agog over the orchestra of activities laid out for them - games galore, a best-in-costume contest, a talent show (which lacked pizzaz but could hopefully be improved next year), and storytelling sessions.

Kudos to the following for a job well done:

- for brewing something this big. We have to give it to you, people!
HR - the staff were everywhere anticipating every need. Cheers!
Writers Guild of SPi / Alitaptap Storytellers Club Philippines - great stories! Here's to more sessions! Wacko and Ethel, see you guys again sometime soon! Thanks, JP Canivel, for coordinating the visit of ASPI to SPi.
Toastmasters Club of SPi - nice job, Espie and Perps. Now if only we could bring in all the rest of the officers to help.
OBRA - face painting was fab as always.
Security - They may have forgotten to send you food but hey, thanks so much po for making everything so orderly!
Facilities - Thanks so much for helping us set up the entire 5/F!

Anyone else we forgot? Kick us in the shin so we can correct this entry. Congratulations once again and cheers!
