ARROW@10 Party!

ARROW has stayed strong throughout the years, starting out with 5 AgentsĀ and growing to what is now a flock of high performing people that act as gears to continue the legacy of Remote Operations. In it’s 10th year anniversary, there came a battle between 2 teams on August 4, 2016 in which sparked the interest of over 200 people to side with their chosen squad and defend their loyalty. Team Marvel vs Team DC.


In order to join, you must have at least an apparel orĀ at most a full blown costume depicting what team you were in and part of the registration is to say which character you are from and what team is your character included on. The venue of the event took place in Central BBQ Boy Grill which was at Sheridan St. Pioneer, Mandaluyong City at 4pm. Early birds are encouraged as they will be awarded with prizes. Without further ado, let the battle begin!


The eventĀ was a combination of laughter, applause, cheers, pictures and smiles. With the hosts Madix and Keith up in the stage, sure enough it had anĀ engaging program with the people grinning from end to end. Starting out with a game of finding the correct ARROW logo within the venue in which 10 logos were scattered in the obvious and subtle ways possible. In around 30 minutes, the winners were awarded and everyoneĀ got settled with their seats with their friends all around the table. The shout outs from different projects was next and specific people raised their hands when they were called, and right at the lower left of the stage, there was a non-stop line on the Photo booth. And then everyone glanced behind…


They saw Superman, Spiderman, Thor, Cat Woman, the real beings as they walk through the hallway at the center. Worn by Long Thao, Jay Yen, Matts Thekkanal and Leah Sta Ana, everyone was wowed and the venue became ecstatic with all the noise. Jay did the opening remarks for the time being while sporting his Spiderman suit inspiring the geeks on cultureĀ and thereafter the hostsĀ talked about the history of ARROW where 5 Agents started it all. Agent #1 is Glenn Viola, Agent #2 is Rez Tutor, Agent #3 is Mark Mendoza, Agent #4 is Shaundy Castilar and Agent #5 is Michael Ulep. Not long after, the hostsĀ urged us to get our food and enjoy eating. Raffles were done in between this giving away gadgets to the people lucky with their numbers.


A quiz bee was also set up which was about the history of the different tools that the projects used over the time they started. Fortunate enough there was a group of people that won with two of their members from the starting 5 (Rez and Shaundy) and everyone laughed and chimed as we were dumbfounded and insightful at the same time. Nicki Certeza also was crowned as Best Costume with her CatĀ Woman attire. Next agenda that we had was the video presentation that showed the quirks of the different projects in ARROW. People could not contain their laughter as Agents and Operations Support alike were dancing, singing, emoting, and acting out as much as they could in their program. The winner was Project JUMP and everyone applauded their jolly video. Recognition came soon, where the Top Operations Support were given certificates of their achievements throughout the FY16 and inspired many in the venue to become high performers. We also heard the voices of the Leadership Team greeting ARROW for it’s 10th Anniversary, those who came and those who could not. All in all, the people enjoyed the celebration, bonded with each member within their project and even friends outside the project as Ex-ARROW members were invited. All under one same roof, the best in the business, the gears that keeps our business afloat, the people that make Accenture Remote Resolution OnlineĀ Workforce outstanding.


Oh by the way, DC wins as 70% of the attendees picked Team DC.


Where art thou, Confidence?

It’s been long day, without you my friend… (ehem). It’s been a while, right? Working my ass out, playing like never before and lounging out with my significant is majority of what’s happening in my life nowadays. What’s new, you ask? Well, I am thinking about a lot of events within the next months. Majority of them will comeĀ from work butĀ there other are plans that I need to think about. (JAPAN PLS!) I guess with all the days and nights passing, I do feel like I’m aging more and more each day. I wish time would stop so I can at least catch up, don’t make me too old to appreciate things XD


To be fairly honest, the environment in work is excellent, and in a way I know for a fact that I aidedĀ in that. I’ve probably made a name for myself, a persona, someone that they know and rely on and yet I still can’t comprehend how I did it. Maybe because there’s still a part of me that don’t believe it. Nonetheless, I hear it once in a while, which is good for motivation. I am trying to reach out to people to at least take care of something that I know is the biggest hindrance in moving up. Confidence. Whenever I do a task/experience something and get a feel of it, I tend to become more and more confident in which makes me reliable in that subject matter. But for more movement, I need to be active in doing more tasks and reaching new heights. But where do I start? How do I finish? How will I keep going? Can I do it? Will it stress me out?… I have these questions every single day.


It’s late in the evening. I need to walk this out and contemplate on what to do next. I need to find the spark that can let me meet confidence, eye to eye, face to face, and maybe, just maybe I may be able to incorporate it in me. Ciao, 11:40pm.
