Brother Color Manila Run 2015 Davao Leg

The Brother Color Manila Run has caught Davao and I've had an amazing Sunday since I'm privilege to be part of the bloggers to join the event. 
Honestly, I'm not an active runner,my last run I was not able to finish 3k but this is an excellent first step for me as a newbie runner to experience fun run and the same time, enjoying the color powder throwing as much as I can.
Brother Color Manila Run Davao leg not only brought the colors but also brought in great music and party environment at the same time.
I was at the venue around 5:00 am to claim my kit and registered to run only 3k. To those who go with the 6 kilometers, the finishers received a free Brothers Ink Pillow because it represent the 6,000 pages print output of the latest Brother's New Refill Tank System printer.  

The run starts at the Crocodile Park and proceeds to Diversion Road and u-turn back to Crocodile Park and eventually to the finish line. 
I had fun watching people being thrown with color powder and s…

Why Jollibee Jollitown Funtasy Land brings extra sarap summer in Davao

I am genuinely a kid at heart and nothing fascinates me more than having new or memorable experiences. Last May 9, I excitedly brought my family and niece to a big event of Jollibee, the Jollitown Funtasy Land caravan as it brings an extra sarap summer to Davao at the SMX Convention Center in SM Lanang Premier, Davao City from 9am to 2pm and 3pm to 8pm.

Jollibee prepared hours of fun for energetic young Davaoeños, who slid their way to an exciting experience at the Rainbow Slide and enjoyed bouncing around at the Jollibee House. Their adventure continued as they scaled new heights with the Dingdangdong Clingers and met magical characters at the Enchanted Maze.

Making the Jollitown Funtasy Land caravan even more unforgettable for Jollibee Kids Club members was getting a chance to showcase their talents. They sang to their heart’s content and made their own albums at Twirlie’s Music Studio and shared fun stories with Jollibee at the Jolliphone Booth. The little guests even got up close a…

Why Perch Modern Kitchen + Bar Should be 1 of the favorite restobars in Davao

Where to drink in Davao and what to eat in Davao have become more difficult and complicated. It's no longer a question of how far or what food I crave but now I consider the different experience I'll encounter upon entering a restaurant. 

Yours truly have been invited as one of the food bloggers to dine in this newly opened restobar,  PERCH Kitchen + Bar in Felcris Centrale, Quimpo Blvd.

Upon entering the restobar, it can't be denied the mark of good craftmanship in the details of the interiors. The clean lines, dark wood, polished interiors gives off a welcoming, casual dining vibe. The concept makes it a relaxing spot where people can chill.  For those opting for a lighter fare to go with the drinks, try the Choriburger (Php160), Chorizo patty topped with egg, cheese and perch's signature coleslaw, all these between an english muffin will leave you wanting more.  One of my favorites candied Bacon Chips is definitely one that excites the taste buds with every bite.  Meanwh…
