I'm gonna share to you guys my 1st DFAT experience.  I'm not a food blogger nor am I that knowledgeable when it comes to food jargons but I love to eat and share what I eat on instagram so I think that's good for starters. So just a disclaimer,  I may not describe the food that well but I hope the pictures would suffice my inadequacy.

The orientation was held at Mam Bebs near Ateneo de Davao University,  I am an Atenean but I never tried the resto near my alma mater, shame on me! Mam Bebs formerly known as La Suerte Bakeshop is not just a Bakeshop that sells yummy bread and pastries.They also serve affordable but quality meals that will satisfy your appetite.



Potato Rolls

Snacks were served namely Potato Rolls, Mango Slices, Apple Pie and Hongkong Pancakes.

Potato Rolls look and taste like mini ensaymada. It will amaze you it's main ingredient is potato. A box would cost 650,perfect as a snack, may it be for adults or kids.



Mango Slices

One of my faves, mango slices! It was chewy and sweet. And did I mention it's addicting?  It's sweet but addicting kind of sweet, it's not too much sweet, just the right amount of sweetness you'll need after a meal. It was everyone's favorite.  50 pieces of this is worth 650, so that's  like 13 per slice.


Apple Pie

I was not a huge fan of Apple Pie before, but when you'll taste a good kind of Apple Pie, you'll be looking for it every now and then. This one has a strong cinnamon smell but the cinnamon taste compliments the apple well, this will taste heaven if you add vanilla ice cream on top but the pie itself is good enough if you don't want to add extra calories. For 550, it's worth a try.



Hong Kong Waffles

Hongkong waffles look cute with the little dots that form the waffles, waffles can be considered  one of my comfort food so this one made me happy,  it was served with confectionery sugar which I think is healthier than syrup because you can dust off the excess sugar unlike the syrup which makes you want to add more of it. Waffles costs 30 and add 5 if you want some chocolate on top which I should try next time.

My top 2 favourites would be the Mango Slices and Apple Pie.


After a few minutes of discussing the schedule on the following days, DOT Region XI Director, Mr. Roberto Alabado III shared to us on how they try to promote Davao City as a tourist destination by providing discounts on accommodation,  different tours, shopping and restaurants.  Visit Davao Fun Sale this year is different from last year, last year's focus was on mall sales whereas this year's focus was more on discovering Davao City.  You can save as much as 50% when you have the Davao Fun Sale passport which is available on malls or you can just download it on your phone since they have an app. I will share to you my Davao city Fun Sale experience on the next post. He also shared how tourism can help a city grow and how much a city can earn thru tourism.

After discussing about Visit Davao Fun Sale and answering our inquires in relation to tourism we had an early dinner.


Flat Iron Steak, Anchovy, Garlic and Mint Stuffed Leg of Lamb and Slow Roasted Turkey


Flat Iron Steak

For dinner, we went to Vikings at SM Lanang which I believe is the biggest buffet here in Davao as of the moment.  They offer wide array of food from Italian, Filipino, Japanese,  Korean, Chinese and a lot more. 


Mexican Spiced Ham Hock


Tempura

Even the drinks are unlimited so for 788+ 5% service charge for weekday dinner  or 588 + 5% service charge for weekday lunch or 788 + 5% service charge for weekend/ holiday lunch and dinner you can taste over 400 different dishes in one restaurant.



Cheese Platter

My heart was stolen by their steak. It was soft and tasty, the peppercorn sauce compliments the beef so be sure to try it on your next visit. I was really tempted to try their salmon since co bloggers were raving on how good their sashimi was but my stomach gets really upset when I eat raw fish so I was really envious.


Biko , Palitaw and Puto


Cassanova

Was searching for new fave korean dish, Galbi Jjim but it was not available so I just tried their banchans but it was not spicy enough for me but it was good.




Their dessert table is a must visit.  They serve kakanin, cakes, crepes, froyo, ice cream, fondue and more. I tried their cakes and froyo but I was really happy with the froyo. It tastes like yogurt, not the sweet version but how yogurt suppose to taste like. I'm a big fan of yogurt if you guys don't know. You can add different toppings to your froyo depending on your palette.


Skewered Chicken


Pizza


They have promos every now and then so check out their facebook page for more updates. If you're a birthday  celebrant then you get to eat for free once during your birth month, better present a valid ID wherein your birthday is printed on it. 



Sushi


and more Sushi

The place is spacious and the ambiance is really nice. Btw, you can request the waiters to sing a birthday song for your loved ones and it comes with a mini cake. Cute right?


And that ends my 1st day of DFAT 2015.

3rd mini album from Got7 has 6 songs in total including the title track Just Right which was composed by JYP himself. The album despite the fact that it has only 6 songs, it has different genres which will be discussed further since I have not listened to the whole album yet.


Just Right (딱 좋아)

Mirror, mirror, please tell her
Scale, you too tell her
You don’t need to change a thing, you’re just pretty
You look perfect just the way you are
Just need to be happy, without a worry
Don’t try to look for what isn’t good enough
Turn your attention from the mirror to my eyes
Get off the scale and onto my back
No matter how hard I try to find
And look at you again and again
That unpretty spot you keep talking about
I can’t see it at all
Stay just the way you are are are are are are and I I I I I
don’t want anything more so don’t you change a thing thing thing thing thing
Don’t worry worry worry worry worry worry cuz your everything is all all all all
All right, so don’t you change a thing thing thing thing thing
Just stay (the way you are) oh- (the way you are)
Oh- (the way you are) oh oh oh that’s all I need
Your everything is just right, so you
don’t need to worry, you can
100 percent trust every word I say
100 percent erase all your worries
No matter how hard I try to find
And look at you again and again
That unpretty spot you keep talking about
I can’t see it at all
Stay just the way you are are are are are are and I I I I I
don’t want anything more so don’t you change a thing thing thing thing thing
Don’t worry worry worry worry worry worry cuz your everything is all all all all
All right, so don’t you change a thing thing thing thing thing
Just stay (the way you are) oh- (the way you are)
Oh- (the way you are) oh oh oh that’s all I need
You can’t find a flaw that doesn’t even exist
You shine so brightly, so perfect in every way
To me you’re so beautiful I want you
Just the way you are, you’re the only one
You can’t find a flaw that doesn’t even exist
You shine so brightly, so perfect in every way
To me you’re so beautiful I want you
Just the way you are, you’re the only one
Stay just the way you are are are are are are and I I I I I

Infinite is back with their 5th mini album entitled Reality. Inspirits are excited about this comeback because it has been a while since they saw the group as a whole. The album has 7 tracks including the title track song Bad. No comments yet since I'm still busy spazzing alongside with Got7. Will update this soon though.




Bad – English Translation Lyrics (가사 영어 번역)

Chilled eyes again
Your sharp tongue is digging me
Please stop
I can’t stand anymore


You came and hugged me as with me
You’re disappearing just like a dream
Now obsessed with you, without even touching


I’m afraid I break
You’re probably leave after shake me


Betting on you
I’m Betting on you
Betting on you
Never let you go like that


Bad Bad Bad Bet a bad bad girl
Bad Bad Bad Bet a bad bad girl
Bad Bad Bad Bet a bad bad girl
Look anytime, you’re always strange woman
Bad Bad Bad Bet a bad bad girl
Bad Bad Bad Bet a bad bad girl
Bad Bad Bad Bet a bad bad girl
You are endlessly rasing the stakes on me


Here and there you, Like rollacoasta
Here and there you, So bad


Even lie is sweet
Your lips are warning, Like a red
Whisper around ears
Lose ma focus, in your order
Cleared one and two, I see nothing exclud you
I’m not afraid to face it tomorrow
Come on take me with rough trembling


I’m afraid I break
You’re probably leave after shake me


Betting on you
I’m Betting on you
Betting on you
Never let you go like that


Bad Bad Bad Bet a bad bad girl
Bad Bad Bad Bet a bad bad girl
Bad Bad Bad Bet a bad bad girl
Look anytime, you’re always strange woman
Bad Bad Bad Bet a bad bad girl
Bad Bad Bad Bet a bad bad girl
Bad Bad Bad Bet a bad bad girl
You are endlessly rasing the stakes on me


Missed it again and again as if touching my hand
Also it seemed can see or not
Your answer
Now I can’t turn back
I can’t stop me
I’m betting on you


Bad Bad Bad Bet a bad bad girl
Bad Bad Bad Bet a bad bad girl
Bad Bad Bad Bet a bad bad girl
Look anytime, you’re always strange woman
Bad Bad Bad Bet a bad bad girl
Bad Bad Bad Bet a bad bad girl
Bad Bad Bad Bet a bad bad girl
You are endlessly rasing the stakes on me


Bad Bad Bad Bet a bad bad girl
Bad Bad Bad Bet a bad bad girl

Bad Bad Bad bet a bad bad girl


Never let you go simply

Last July 10, 2015, Krispy Kreme invited a some bloggers to celebrate Krispy Kreme's 78th birthday in advance. It was a mini gathering filled with food and games. We were not lucky enough to win because of my forgetfulness. The game was pass the message and I'm really sorry towards my team mates.

Girls Generation is back with a new track entitled Party. It's a fun and dainty song that makes you want to enjoy summer. The MV compliments the song well with their vibrant hair color and summer clothes. It's not a strong song compared to their past songs but it's a refreshing song.



The song and MV is not too sexy even though they were wearing summer clothes aside from Sunny. Her curves are too sexy for her size.  It's a bit weird for me to see 8 members since I have not seen the previous MV   which was the 1st MV with 8 members. I'm not a huge fan of SNSD but it's sad to know that one member is not there anymore.

Enough drama and  enjoy the MV and single. Pyong~

Let’s go to a white pearly beach with great waves

We love summer
Forget how you were busily running before
Hey turn it up
The blue sky is so perfect
Colored on top of the water oh oh

My excited heart goes higher and higher
