Upcoming events…Sept/Oct


It’s been almost two and a half weeks since our last event – SAMA Family Day 2016. Thanks to our SAMA members, family and friends who came and spent the day (and overnight) of (lotsa) food, drinks and fun with us.

We also had a very interesting presentation of completed projects where BIM was used. Kudos to Engr. Sonny Andalis for doing the presentation and showing the technical details involved without being boring. Both his technical and non-technical audiences voiced their appreciations and further clarified parts where they found very interesting e.g. air conditioning using solar energy, many more. We really appreciate the time you’ve spent with us. Unfortunately he didn’t have the chance to enjoy the pool afterwards. Anyway, binawi na lang niya sa food hehehe.

Now, this September, we will have two sports events – basketball and bowling.

We hope that some of our basketball enthusiasts and friends will be able to join us in this year’s 3-on-3 Basketball Games! In the tradition of our badminton event last May, this basketball games will have a similar inter-school concept. Contact us via the link or thru Mr. Shaun Acasio for details. [Update 18/Sept: 3-on-3 will be held on 1st October in November 2016, tentatively instead of this September, due to schedule conflicts with other basketball tournaments.]

Meanwhile, our weekly bowling tournament will have it’s Masters Event this coming Sunday, 4th of September. Details are posted in our bowling group’s fb page. Cheerers and clappers are most welcome to attend. Our bowlers will surely appreciate it! Interested parties may also contact us thru our contact page or thru Mr. Rico Cordero for details.

This coming October, we will be preparing for a Seminar for our members. The details are still being finalized and we will post it soon here. [Seminar details in the recent post: Industrie 4.0]

Lastly, we are also looking for volunteers to help us with some heavy lifting activities for the Bayanihan Center in October. This will be happening in two or three weekends depending on the turn out of volunteers. More volunteers mean faster completion of the job. Interested parties may contact us thru our contact page or drop a message to Mr. Edwin or Ms. Joy for details. Everyone is welcome. Let us do this the ‘bayanihan’ way.



Goal Setting seminar – event highlights

SAMA has completed its first seminar series for 2016: Goal Setting this 2nd of April.  Our guest speaker was Pastor Ramon Alingalan. It was attended by a number of our alumni with their friends and families. The seminar was held in AIA Alexandra building which was arranged by our Sec-Rochelle. We were also graced by our partner sponsors SMDC-Team KMAC represented by Ms. Kaye herself and BDO representative Mr. Lucas.

The program arrangement and hosting was done by our IVP-Vhines and welcoming talk and introduction of our guest speaker by our EVP-Shaun.

Our guest speaker, Pastor Ramon Alingalan.

Some of the presentation slides worth noting…


A GOAL without a PLAN is just a WISH


Make S.M.A.R.T. goals

After the workshop, SAMA awarded Pr. Alingalan a Plaque of Appreciation for his time and effort in doing the workshop with us.

Group pictures were taken which drew the seminar to a close…


Thank you for coming and we hope to see more of you in our next seminar series this 2016.
