Havaianas Playback 2012 in Siliman brings back Pinoy Street Games

By Miong - Monday, March 12, 2012

Parlor Games or Parlour Games, Street Games or Childhood Games are our kids favourite past time before but the fast-paced technology changes the game play to iPad and Andoid Tablets where Angry Birds or Fruit Ninja is more preferred. This year, as Havaianas celebrates 50 years, fun and fair play brought back big smiles in the missed street games: Bato lata, Chinese garter, Patintero (tubig-tubig), Sipa, Agawan base (bahaw-bahaw), Lakad bunot, Tumbang preso, and Piko in the 3rd Havaianas Playback Invitational at the Siliman University West Quadrangle in Dumaguete City last February 25, 2012.

Havaianas, in cooperation with the Siliman University Student Government and Council of Student Organizations, gathered 12 student organizations: Sigma Rho, Medical Technology, Zambo Sur Sillimanites, AgusanSillimanites, Pan Hellenic Society, Ang Sandigan, Tau Gamma Phi, Omicronian Society, Kadugong Bol-anon (KADBOL), Philippine Institute of Cumputer Engineering Students (PHICES), Renaissance Youth Leaders Forum (RYLF), and College of Education Student Organization (CESO).
The best rubber flip flop in the world turned back time for the day with a retrospective on well-loved Filipino street games. The day kicked off with the Parade of Colors and a cheering competition between all the participating groups. With the help of the Cebu City Sports Commissioners, these beloved childhood games proved to be no child’s play with serious cash prizes for the winning teams:
  • Champion of the Havaianas Playback 2012 Invitational - Sigma Rho (trophy and P20,000 cash)
  • 1st runner up - Renaissance Youth Leaders Forum (trophy and P10,000 cash)
  • 2nd runner up - Tau Gamma (trophy and P5,000 cash)
  • Happy Squad Special Award - Agusan Sillimanites (Plaque) - the team with the happiest and loudest cheer and chant.
  • The Most Loved Team Award - Ang Sandigan (Plaque) - the team with the most active fans
  • The Early Birds Award - The Omircronian Society (Plaque) -the first team to complete registration.

In a flurry of artistic expression, 15 Art students converged suddenly at The Terraces, Ayala Center Cebu giving mall-goers a taste of sunshine with Havaianas Street Fun, a welcome break from the oppressive weather lately. Capoeira Artists and drum beaters quickly joined in the fun in the unique flash mob activity with a chalk art drawing representing Havaianas in the middle of the Terraces. Drumbeaters made passers-by sway to the beat of summer while capoeira enthusiasts showed off awesome high-kicks and acrobatic moves that combined martial arts, music and dance.
