Davao Spots

I got tagged by Raine.

Instructions: A tag for Davao bloggers! Honorary Dabawenyos, feel free to jump in!This tag game is about your favorite haunts in our beloved Davao City. Where do you go for much-needed relaxation? What about for working out those flabs? Where do you find yourself when you’re with someone you want to impress? Let’s bring all of these Davao places out in the blogosphere!

Here goes my list:

COFFEE : Figaro

DATES : What ? Mhmm dates? Treat me lavishly... Eden Nature Park. Bwahaha. or La Toscana would be fine. Di naman ako demanding.


BIZ MEETINGS: Our home is good for biz meetings. Actually I don't know... Uhmm prolly Marco Polo.. it's the best hotel in town and perfect for almost everything (expensive nga lang).

HANGING OUT : Lachi's, Our home (again, I don't hang out that much eh, I hang-in most of the time.. ayy ang korny!), and Jack's Ridge very windy and not that far.

PARTYING : I don't know. I don't go out. I never went out.

PIGGING OUT :

Breakfast: Paradise Beach Resort (I tried getting up early with the family just to have breakfast at the island).

Lunch: Bigby's (for big appetites), or for eat-all-you-can places? Cafe Marco(Marco Polo)

Dessert: Lachi's or Bistro Rosario *my fave Mango Charlotte*(for cakes or desserts)

Dinner: Dusk till Dawn (for people who love native chicken *they open from dusk pm till dawn am), Ah fat Seafood Restaurant(Chinese resto, yummy food. you can order ostrich dishes or even peking duck if they have one available) & Sen Ton Whan.

Catering: Leandro's

MASSAGE : I never had a massage session.. but I do have a card at some massage center that I did not use.. Heck, I even forgot the name....

WORKING OUT : I don't work out... but there's one place where most of my classmates go "Holiday Spa".

WINDOW-SHOPPING: Chimes

GETTING AWAY FROM IT ALL: Seems like Davao is a place for getting away from it all... Salumay (it's still part of Davao City), Samal Island (be it Pearl Farm, Paradise Island or Malipano *very private*), Loleng's Mountain Resort and Eden Nature Park.

Im tagging everyone who resides in Davao... na hindi pa na tag... and of course to those who visited Davao who wants to do the tag. I'm sure Kenneth would love to do this... will you? Hehe.

Interesting post. Nagka idea tuloy ako kung saan ako pupunta in case na mapadpad ako sa Davao. Heard about Eden Nature Park, para daw syang equivalent ng Sonya's Garden dito

mukhang masarap yang Mango Charlotte. sa isang sikat na bakeshop laging mango cake ang binibili ko. di kasi masyadong matamis.

oh man that mango charlotte looks goooo-ud! :9 Wow I wish I could go to Davao, if not for that cake, then to see all the cool stuff there. I always wanted to go just to see the Philippine Eagle. My brother and mom went to the Pearl Farm there, they ate sea urchins straight from the ocean! Hope to see you in Davao one day Tina
