ICI Celebrates Acquaintance Party 2011

ICI honors every student by giving them a special day with the chance to mingle and meet new friends. Because of this very reason, the institution with the aid of its Student Body Organization (SBO) celebrates its Acquaintance Party at Mimar’s Springway Resort in Timoga, Buru-un, Iligan City last July 22, 2011. ICI’ans crowded the place as they arrive one by one with their classmates and friends. Every student sign the registration by presenting their ID’s or Certificate of Registration (COR) to ensure that no outsiders can enter the premises and preserve the exclusivity of the place for the time being. Afterwards, they go to their respective departments and make themselves comfortable as they occupy the tables exclusively provided for them. Like any acquaintance party, a programme is prepared for the formality of the event as well as for the entertainment of everyone.

Initially, the emcee for the event calls every student to gather around in preparation for the opening remarks. He is one of ICI’s English Instructors and has been the emcee for many of the school’s events for the past few years, Mr. Sean B. Boglosa welcomes everyone with a cheerful hello. Subsequently, he then introduces the faculty members from different departments as well as the members of the WebX Team.

There is an obvious increase on the number of students this year, all thanks to the great effort of The Marketing Team making it another reason to celebrate. With a huge place like Mimar’s, students can’t help themselves but to wander around and some of them plunge into the swimming pools to cool themselves. Moments later, students once again gather around as one of the highlighted events of this year’s party, the ICI Faces 2011 is about to begin. Loud cheers and shouts can be heard around the place as 9 students from different departments make their way to the center to introduce themselves and greet spectators with their most pleasing smiles. They then amaze everybody as they perform their presentation numbers and dress in different fashion styles that enhance their physical appearance. Consequently, the emcee once again calls the attention of all students so they could participate in different team games. Indeed a great way to mingle and interact with new personalities. Happiness is all over the place as they play with enthusiasm and humor. Prizes are then given to the winners which come in different useful objects.  Freebies are also given such as bags and thumb drives for the lucky winners of the raffle draw.

A few hours later, the awarding of winners for the ICI Faces 2011 call’s everyone’s attention. They then cheer for their department representatives and give them encouragement. Every student has high hopes of their bets winning the competition but only two stand out to be this year’s Mr. and Ms. ICI Faces 2011. They are John Lendun Petallo and Queenie Manta both from the HRM Department.

The whole event ends successfully with new friends and memories that will last for a long time. This year’s acquaintance party is truly a memorable one because it not only show’s how people can interact with each other but also how they can unite as one.

ICI Grand Reunion

ICI Grand Reunion
“Rhythm of the Past”

Last December 30, 2009 ICI’s cherished plan was put to action: It was the Grand Reunion. The main objective of the reunion was to regain acquaintances and connect with ICI graduates. The plan was laid down by Ms. Frances Joan Leuterio- Quiapo, ICI Industry Coordinator together with Mr. Sean Boglosa and Ms. Lovely Lagario.

The theme of the event was “Rhythm of the Past”. The theme seem to fit the objective of the reunion.  ICI wants to re-connect with its graduates and be acquainted with their achievements after graduating from ICI. The highlight of the event was the sharing of the alumni’s achievements and experiences.  The school president was in attendance and listened to the success stories of its graduates.

ICI on its 11 years of providing quality technical education had already produced successful individuals and most likely an indication that ICI is on the right track. In the end, the event only proves that ICI was indeed a monumental instrument to the success of its graduates. ICI will continually upgrade its facilities and offer relevant courses for the ever changing world and will do its best to produce more competitive and quality graduates.

ICI – Your Skills Your Success!

ICI Faculty and Staff Christmas Party

Who could ever imagine that ICI’s AVP and Guidance Counsellor Ms. Joy Real D. Jala and Ms. Vanch Pacutub respectively has a hidden talent in erotic dancing. Such a superficial words yet it’s TRUE.

Held last December 20, 2009 at Madelicious Resto is ICI-Iligan Faculty and Staff Christmas Party. The party was full of surprises that none of the participants prepared for. ICI female faculty and staff don their newly bought cocktail dresses that really made the ladies look gorgeous. Not to be outshined by their superior; student assistants, a big help in ICI’s daily operations, also wore stunning dresses that made the event even dazzling.

The party started around 5 o’clock in the afternoon. But as early as 4 o’clock, there were individuals who came early in the designated venue of the party maybe because they were after the prize for persons who arrived earlyJ.

The party kicked off with a game. The first game was called “Dr. Wakwak” the game is played by untangling the tangled human participants and whoever is the quickest to untangle the tangled participants wins and the husband of Ms. Joy Real Jala, ICI-AVP, was the winner of the game.

Finally dinner was served the food was marvellous. While everybody was enjoying their meal door prizes were given to everybody and the awarding of “Early Birds”, individuals who arrived in the venue early, commenced.

Ms. Karen Dominguez, the game master, called several guys whom she believed is familiar with the next game. The game was called “Tequila Drinking Contest”. The game mechanics was simple whoever drink 4 Tequila shots in the shortest possible time wins. Unfortunately for the crowd favourite Mr. Dhoi Bitas, it was not his time to shine. The winner of the game was Mr. Randy Tabanao and he brought home 200 pesos cold cashJ.

The next part of the programme was undoubtedly unexpected and everybody was awestruck with the talent of several ICI employees. The game master Ms. Karen Dominguez together with the event organizer Ms. Ligaya Sumampong and event host Mr. Gilson Jay Polutan called several gorgeous and voluptuous ICI ladies to participate in the game. The game was called “Sexy Dancing”. The rule of the game was tempting; whoever performs the sexiest dance moves wins. After the exhausting display of sexy dance moves the participants of the game were judged and whoever has the loudest applause from the audience wins. ICI-AVP Ms. Joy Real D. Jala emerge the victor of the game. The game simply indicated that ICI employees, especially the ladies, have the talents and guts to drive people crazy with their sexy dance moves.

After the games, the anticipated portion of the program the exchanging of gifts started. Everyone was excited to receive their gifts. But before the exchanging of gifts, ICI-Academic Head, Mr. Jefferson Obial paid tribute to all ICI Student Assistants.  Thanking them for their great contribution and dedication toward the development and success of ICI for the year 2009.  Together with the school president, Mr. Ladislao C. Tabanao Jr. they distributed tokens of appreciations to all ICI Student Assisttants.

The Christmas Party was indeed a feat notwithstanding the impending financial crisis; ICI management still has the capacity to throw a party. Year 2009 will soon come to pass and everybody is looking forward to a prosperous year 2010 minus the tragic calamities and heartless killings. Keep safe everybody and enjoy the remaining days of 2009.

Merry Christmas and a Prosperous New Year!
