Handog TeamAsia

Isinulat ni: Neil Dominic De Luna, Graphic Artist

Noong Hulyo, dumayo kami sa Haven for Children para isagawa ang Pop Up Gives Back, ang programang pang-CSR ng TeamAsia. Ito ay ginaganap taun-taon upang maibalik ang mga biyayang ipinagkaloob sa kanila ng Maykapal at makatulong din sa mga nangangailangan.

Naghanda ng masasayang palaro ang TeamAsia at naghandog din ito ng mga makakain para mapagsaluhan ng bawat isa pagkatapos ng mga kasiyahan. Matapos ang mga inihandang gawain at pakain, nagbahagi ng isang makabuluhang pananalita ang presidente ng TeamAsia na si Monette Iturralde-Hamlin. Pinaalalahanan niya ang mga bata na huwag susuko at magpatuloy sa laban ng buhay.

Unang beses kong makadalo sa Pop Up Gives Back at sobrang saya at makabuluhan ito dahil nakita ko ang ngiti at saya ng mga bata sa mga mukha nila.

Naging bahagi ako ng palaro, nakisama sa mga bata, at nakipagkilala sa kanila. May ilang pilyo ngunit masiyahin, at meron din namang mga tahimik at ‘di makabasag pinggan ngunit game na game parin.

Naging makabuluhan ang buhay ng mga oras na iyon, dahil madalang dumating ang pagkakataon na makakapagpasaya ng ibang tao sa ganong paraan. Iba yung pakiramdam na nakikita mong ngumingiti sila dahil sa’yo. Para sa akin, mas masarap makapagpasaya kumpara sa ikaw lang yung masaya at tumatawa, dahil binibigyan ka rin nito ng ginhawang ‘di mo matatamasa mula sa materyal na mga bagay. Sa bawat sulyap ko sa kanila, mas naghahangad akong makatulong pa sa iba.  Mas nabigyan nito ng apoy ‘yung nagbabaga kong kagustuhan na maglaan ng panahon na tumulong at makapagpabago ng buhay ng ibang tao.

Ganap na kagalakan ang nadama ko noong araw na iyon ngunit mas namayani yung mga tanong na umikot sa aking ulo kung bakit, ano, at paano. Sa ngayon, ang importante ay may nag-aaruga sa kanila at nasa mabuting kamay sila.

TeamAsia invades Conceptrum!

By: Koji Arsua, Senior Editorial Associate

Let’s play a game. Given the three situations, which one would you rather be in and what would you do? Would you rather be wrongly accused of a crime and you have to prove your innocence, find the backup power source that will paralyze a town before time runs out, or to look for a psycho killer responsible for your friend’s disappearance?

 

Through Conceptrum in BF Homes, TeamAsians were able to experience all of these fictional scenarios by going through a series of mission-based game rooms. We were able to test out our investigative skills. And boy, was it fun!

 

Conceptrum has three rooms: Framed, where we had to go through several challenges to prove that we did not commit a crime that was being blamed on us; Blackout, which sent us on a mission to locate the power source before the town is enveloped by darkness brought on by power failure; and Deranged, where we raced against time while looking for a psychotic criminal who abducted our friend.

 

We were divided into six groups, where we tried one of the rooms. I was assigned as team leader for the second group for Deranged. Sadly, we were not able to complete the challenge and only managed to solve 85% of the puzzle. We ran out of time when we were trying to figure out the code for a locked box. It was so hard that none of the groups completed 100%!

 

AC Esguerra, Florence Joy Dela Cruz, and Monica Borja’s groups scored the highest with 90% for Blackout, Deranged, and Blackout, respectively.

Groups 4, 5, and 6 before we entered the game rooms. The atmosphere was a mix of nervousness and excitement because we didn’t know what to expect (especially in Deranged)
