Hi everyone! I’m back to tell you all about my first trip to a city I’ve never been to—DAVAO CITY!
If you’re more into photos and text, read on! If not, watch the vlogs above. :)
I had a few minutes to spare before my flight so I went to the food area at the airport and got myself a Kopi Coffee and french toasts at Kopi Roti. I didn’t really finish the coffee because it was too hot! And the toasts didn’t taste that great, either.
It was not quite the weather I expected it to be. This was the view I had from my window seat.
Up in the sky! Thank goodness for no turbulence! My flight was rather uncomfortable, the baby behind me screamed and cried for a good 45 minutes and I just couldn’t seem to get comfortable in my seat!
Arrived in Davao safely at 12:19! Had to get my luggage.
Chedelyn’s best friend Olga, and her sister Marla, fetched me from the airport and we went to Harana for lunch!
Beautiful place! I love all the greens!
This is seriously THE BEST fried chicken I have tried!!! Flavor on the skin and the insides! YUM!
Of course, I had to try their spareribs. It was cooked to perfection!!!!!! I LOVE SPARERIBS!
A bangus dish which was also really good!
Tried out DURIAN SHAKE for the very first time! THIS IS SO GOOD!! Very milky and extremely tasty! I love it!
After lunch time, we went straight to Sampaguita Inn where I stayed the night. This is what my room looked like:
Pardon my things already laid out on the bed (hehe) I had a simple bed. NO BLANKET!!! I had to turn off the airconditioning that night because I didn’t have any blanket and it was chilly!
We have a simple table by the side with a mirror on the wall.
Cable TV which I didn’t use because you have to deposit PHP500.00 for the remote control! A mini airconditioning unit at the back, and no view from the window.
Pretty regular bathroom. I got freaked out by the windows when I showered that night.
Work started at around 3PM! We went to Davao Convention Center and I met a lot of beautiful people! Read more about the meet and greet here: http://saytiocoartillero.blogspot.com/2013/08/visiting-davao-city-kadayawan-meet.html
I met fellow Youtubers Anne and Karla!! They patiently waited for my work hours to end for us to go out for dinner! Sweetiebears.
Snack time! Carbonara and a bottle of DURIAN SHAKE omg I just had to get another one. Although this doesn’t compare to the one I had earlier at Harana!
Work ended at around 7:30 and Karla, Anne, and myself headed out for dinner.
I spotted DURIAN ON THE STREETS! Cool beans. I’ve never tried durian before. And I promised I would, on my last day in Davao.
Welcome to Outback Grill! A beautiful, beautiful place I shall never forget!
I love the clever signage they have all over the place!
A wall full of Outback’s customers!
I just love the whole ambiance!
OF COURSE I HAD TO ORDER RIBS AGAIN!!!! This was absolutely scrumptious!!!!
Tequila Sunrise—my favorite drink!
The girls had Acapulco.
It’s my first time meeting these two ladies and we had so much fun! I feel like I’ve known them forever! Thank you Anne and Karla!!!
KADAYAWAN FIRE DANCE AT OUTBACK GRILL:
We took super cute photos with this huge frame! The gay waited (by my side) was HILARIOUS! He posted as he took everybody’s photos!
I shall never forget Outback Grill!!! I LOVE IT!
One of my sweet subbies gave me pastel!!! I had extra noms in my room that night.
Stay tuned for DAY 2 in DAVAO CITY coming soon…
