Davao Bloggers Eyeball at PAGCOR

Last night, we were in the Pantawan Hall of The Grand Regal Hotel in Lanang, still here in Davao City. We were invited for a bloggers' fellowship night by the DigitalFilipinoClub particularly Janette Toral. The event was sponsored by Philippine Gaming Amusement Corporation (PAGCOR), a government corporation.

It was a great night. We learned some new things, met old (Rex, Bloggie) and new faces (Honey, Myrell among others). The food was great. It was not only great but it's free! Beer is free also! Not only that, there was a band and they have great music!

There was a free poker game which I didn't join because I don't know how to play poker in the first place. I have not played in the Casino every since! Hehehe. PAGCOR, the event sponsor also gave out 500 pesos worth of play card to eight lucky winners.

Thank you to Janette Toral for inviting us and to PAGCOR for sponsoring such a wonderful event.

Adventure in Seagull Mountain Resort

October 5, 2008. We had an escapade. We explored the beautiful Seagull Mountain Resort in Buda (along Davao-Bukidnon Road). Such a beautiful place!

It was a very exciting trip. We got there thru an elf (a light truck) passing the fantastic view of mountains and trees. The view kept us busy taking pictures while the elf is running. Eating cooked bananas while being amazed of the beautiful scenery.

As soon as we arrived the place, we immediately proceeded to the waterfalls. We had our breakfast there (bread filled with pansit canton that we ordered from Dencia's). We were so fascinated with the waterfalls and the very cold pool water. It's like swimming in a pool full of ice. Because of fascination, some of my friends who don't know how to swim and were afraid of swimming, conquered their fear. They grab their life jacket and enjoyed the pool!

We were fortunate also to have met Press Secretary Jesus Dureza who went there at that time with some friends. We had an opportunity to take pictures with him having the waterfalls as background.

When we got back to Davao, we had a massage at the Blinds Therapeutic Massage in Matina.

Indeed, a great day!
