On October 27, TOA Global’s Clark and Manila sites were transformed into one huge fairy tale book to celebrate Halloween with the theme “FesTOAval of Fairy Tales,” which also served as a competition on designing the best workstations.
Entering the company’s doors was like opening the pages of a ginormous book, filled with colourful characters and wonderful storylines. Kids and adults alike were treated to a wonderful journey to the fictional worlds we’ve all grown to love, from Agrabah to the depths of the ocean to Emerald City as they walked through the halls of TOA Global’s offices.
In Clark, the production floor became the setting for an epic fight between the villainous Captain Hook and the eternally youthful Peter Pan.
Dorothy wandered away from the yellow brick road for the meantime. Her ruby slippers took her to Clark where she met with the rest of her crew to give kids a fun time.
The Support Team pulled out all the stops and reimagined the kingdom that fell into a deep slumber after Sleeping Beauty pricked her finger. She was awakened by true love’s kiss. When her Prince Charming found her, Prince Aurora spread the love by giving away candies and treats to the excited kids.
Maleficent, the fairy who put a curse on Princess Aurora
The King and Queen, along with the entire kingdom, fell into a deep sleep when the curse fulfilled itself.
After years of waiting, Prince Charming finally found Prince Aurora and gave her a kiss to break the curse.

Stepping into a different part of the production floor is like turning a new page on the fairy tale book. This time, we’re taken under the sea, where the enchanting voice of Princess Ariel from The Little Mermaid echoed through the underwater kingdom.

We can’t blame Hansel and Gretel from taking a bite out of the gingerbread house because it just looks tasty.
Right after the tour of the various fairy tale worlds, the kids were gathered for a movie screening.
The fun doesn’t end there. In Manila, Little Red Riding Hood courageously entered the woods to visit her grandmother–even if a deadly wolf lies in wait.
From the dark, scary woods we were taken to a castle high above the ground where a family of giants conceals hidden treasures, which Jack was able to get his hands on thanks to a bag of magic beans.
Our guests were then taken on a carpet ride to the city of Agrabah where Aladdin and Princess Jasmine are living their magical romance.
Genie definitely worked his magic by giving away lots of treats for these kids.
Then it’s storytelling time!
“FesTOAval of Fairy Tales” was a success especially with the impressive effort provided by all team members in setting up their workstations. The judging committee then selected the best trick or treat booths from both sites. The winners were:
1st place: The Little Mermaid
2nd: Wizard of Oz
3rd: Beauty and the Beast & Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs
Along with the fun trip down fairy tale land, TOA Global also held a photo caption contest where all team members were encouraged to submit their most creative photos and caption. Here are the five winning entries:
“The daily grind at work can always have a fairy tale ending when you sprinkle it with some pixie dust of happy thoughts, a dash of creativity, and a dose of enthusiasm. At TOA, there’s always a “happily ever after” at the end of each work day.”
Ma. Jezza Lyn Bugua
“Once in a while, right in the middle of ordinary life, love gives us a Fairy Tale”.
Raissa Gail Pillo
“FesTOAval of Fairy Tales lets you travel back to the sweet memories of your childhood days.”
“Tick, tock, TOAclock! I have only until 4:00pm.”
“Cinderella is proof that a new pair of shoes can change your life forever.”
Here at TOA Global, Halloween, along with other special holidays become even more special because of the exciting events cooked up by our management and the eagerness of every team member to make each event memorable.
