Last November 15, 2013 at 5 o'clock in the afternoon, SM City Mall had their Grand launching of Christmas held at the Atrium. There was a mini-chapel built in the area where people can pose and take pictures as souvenirs. The event was hosted by Ms. Cagayan de Oro 2012 and graced by none other than the City Mayor Oscar Moreno and his wife Arlene. People from different sectors also attended the Christmas Festival. The UCCP Choir, Kids choir (I forgot the name) and XU-College Glee Club rendered different Christmas Carols.

The unveiling of big Christmas Tree and life-sized Nativity was the main event that night. After which, people were given tasty Filipino delicacies such as kutsinta, empanada, cassava roll, chokolate and orange juice. And oh, Santa Claus was there, too, and game enough to pose with the kids and those kids at heart.

I wanted to Congratulate my eldest daughter Chloe for winning the Elocution Contest for the 2nd time around. She won the gold medal last year, and this year, she grabbed the gold again (or 1st place).
I was there this afternoon to watch her recite her piece in the platform. So far, she was able to nail it. And I thank my friend also who helped me in honing my daughter's skills. Everyone thought my daughter deserved the award, some students were betting for her to win and she did.
I thank the Lord for answering our prayers. I thank Him for guiding my daughter and He did. Thank Lord God for everything!

If you are having a big event, make sure you use the right materials needed for the program and even the props. It is even better if you use water resistant trade show tablecloth because this will help you save time in case something just spilled out of nowhere. You can easily clean it very quickly without even leaving marks. If you want to use this kind of tablecloth, you can order this online or even the store near you. What's nice about this is that you can make even print the name of your company as a way of promoting it. To know further inquiries, visit their site now!

Krispy Kreme finally opened its 44th store in Cagayan de Oro City on November 15, 2013. It is also the 4th branch and 2nd Hotlight Store in Mindanao.
Prior to its opening, Krispy Kreme had a Media Launch and Blogger event on November 13 and VIP Night on November 14. I was one of the bloggers who attended the event and we were privileged enough in tasting the yummy doughnuts before the store opened in public.
Krispy Kreme showed to us how they neatly prepared and pack their doughnuts. After that, those interested to 'make their own doughnut' lined up and I was one of them. I named mine Sweet Cookie :-) We also tried their drinks and how I love the taste of Chocolate Choco!
Making my own doughnutOriginal Glazed doughnut is my top favorite in Krispy Kreme but I found another favorite, Four Cheese! Try to taste this once you're at their store. I'm sure you'll yearn for more.
With Ms. Nadia
The event was a memorable and just like before, the staff and the crew warmly welcomed us. Ms. Nadia Lee, Assistant Marketing Manager, and other heads were also there greeting and entertaining us. Freebies were given to us before we went home. Oh, how I just love them!
As you all know, Krispy Kreme opened on November 15, 2013 at 8:00 o'clock in the morning. We blogged before what to expect on the opening day. The 1st one to line up will get one year supply of Krispy Kreme plus their signature coffee, 2nd in line will receive 6 months free supply of Krispy Kreme and coffee and the 3rd in line will get 3 months free supply plus coffee. This also applies to Drive-thru customers. If you're on the 4th-100th line, you still get to receive 1 month free supply of Krispy Kreme.
CDO BloggersThe day before the store opened, some people already lined up outside vying for the prizes. And I would like to congratulate all who got there early especially those who won the top 3 prizes.
