Kagayan Experience Food Tour (KExTour) Day 2

CDOBloggers hosted the first ever Kagayan Experience Food Tour last November 13 - 17, 2018 and I was able to visit only two places on the first day. On the second day of the tour, it started at Krispy Kreme in Limketkai Center. They offered limited edition of holiday donuts. I was extremely happy when they gave each one of us a box of half dozen holiday donuts coz my kids love them!

Our second stop was at Chinkee Tea. The place was instagrammable. I mean, you can take lots of picture perfect with a very good angle in your cameras! They have several branches but we went at their Velez-Gaerlan branch. Chinkee Tea has a very nice ambiance. It has this feel-good view or a classic-meets-modern scenery. Since I was in a hurry to pick up my youngest child at school, I decided to take out my Wintermelon milk tea, which apparently, was one of their bestsellers.

I wasn't able to join the 3rd and 4th stop that day. My fellow-bloggers went to Mykelli's Grill located at Pueblo. Their 4th stop was at Samgui Korean resto in Corrales. I had a busy afternoon and did some motherly duties so I excused myself.
3. Seda Hotel Centrio

I was only able to join the group on their 5th stop at Seda Hotel. However, I arrived a little late for the Stellar Christmas Tree Lighting Event due to heavy traffic. But at least I was able to catch up the remaining parts of the program and took some pictures of what was left on the food.

4. Superstar KTV Lounge and Club - The last stop on that night was at Superstar KTV Bar located at CTC. We were welcomed by the owner and treated us with really good food! We had fun singing that night but I need to be home before midnight so I went ahead with the group. Overall, our busy day ended with a super fun night.

Kagayan Experience Food Tour (KExTour) Day 1

The bloggers of Cagayan de Oro, or CDOBloggers, hosted its first ever Kagayan Experience Food Tour last November 13 - 17, 2018. It was so timely because it was also the organization's 10th year anniversary. The Food Tour was more memorable because another group of bloggers - Iligan and Manolo Fortich bloggers - joined in the fun.

The first day of the tour started last November 13, 2018. I wasn't able to join other tours as I have some motherly duties to do earlier that day. I think they went first to Bigby's and then Cucina Higala. I was only able to catch up in the afternoon despite the heavy rains. Anyways, below are the pictures and summary of the tour that I joined:

1. Pane e Dolci - "Take a break from the ordinary". Pane e dolci is known for their Sylvannas and other yummy Cakes (I love the Opera cake!). They also offer Meals, Civet Coffee and Specialty Coffee.
During the tour, they showed us how their famous coffee was made. They served to us the coffee with ensaymada. Thank you for the treat and for the Sylvannas giveaway :-p

Coffee...anyone?
Sylvannas - Simply the best!
2. Boy Zugba - a Filipino restaurant that offers Sinugba, Bilao, Boodle, Kinilaw and many, many more. The latest addition to their menu is called SOSPA or Sisig Oh Salad Pa.

It was the last stop that night for our Food tour. Below were some of the foods they served for dinner. Boy Zugba is really the best place to go if you're looking for a Filipino food. They have the best Pancit (Pancit sa Pulis), cheezy chorizo, grilled food and kinilaw.

Hello December 2018!

 It's December once again and lemme greet you in advance a MERRY CHRISTMAS!


This picture was taken at Sophie Red Hotel in Jasaan, Misamis Oriental. How I would love to spend an afternoon here but maybe next time. The place is good for sight-seeing the scenic view of the ocean while eating at the restaurant located by the seashore.

Inside the hotel (where I stood), you can see this huge and beautifully decorated Christmas tree. I was only there to check the place and took a break from a long journey with friends. Hope to stay there longer when I come back.
