Last June 28, 2014, we celebrated the Social Media Day 2014 at the Mam Bebs Bakeshop. As I quote, "Mashable launched the event in 2010 as a way to recognize the digital revolution happening right before our eyes. Each year, thousands of people organize hundreds of meetups across the globe. From Australia to the Philippines, all the way to Sri Lanka and Morocco, countries come together every June to participate in this global movement."

Snoe Beauty Abreeza Grand Opening, Davao

Snoe Beauty Abreeza Grand Opening, Davao

Last June 15, I was one of the invited bloggers to participate the Snow beauty launching at the Abreeza Mall of Davao. The event took place at the second floor, fronting Watsons. Upon arriving there, they served some food from Rancheros. Hmmm. The food is perfect.

Snoe Beauty is a proudly Filipino brand which just reached Davao and uses the best ingredients available to their products. In addition to this, the packaging is a vintage inspired and spunky, which make them more interesting.

Movie review: Artificial Intelligence (2001)

Movie review: Artificial Intelligence (2001)
A poster I got from the internet

Haley Joel Osment as David
Robots these days are widely known to the human race ever since. Simple robots became complicated in structure as time passes, as the inventors try to imitate the human body and the brain. It is not shocking, with these advances we have today, that one day, human race might create a robot that can also act and has emotions like a human. This movie depicts the future of our technology. Could robots replace the human race? What would happen if the human race will extinct? What will happen to the future?

Jake Thomas as Martin Swinton
Artificial intelligence is an intelligence what machines has. Software is also under this kind of intelligence. A human-like artificial robot was adopted by a couple who has a son whose condition is critical. As time passes, certain disadvantages has come up a long the way.

The robot, whose name is David, has to surrender back to the company for disposal. Unfortunately, Monica, his "mom" developed an affection and care towards David so instead, she abandoned the boy in the forest along  with the teddy bear who is also a robot. 

David met Gigolo Joe along the way and exprienced adventures. At the end, what the boy wants is to be real in order to be accepted by Monica, his "mom".

This story is about a real love towards a boy to his mom. This story is an adventure of an A.I boy who wants to be a real boy to be accepted. His love is real but he is not.

Carmen's Garden Bistro

Carmen's Garden Bistro


Davao is a progressing city. Different business stalls are emerging in Davao City, especially the food related businesses such as Yakimix and Vikings. With regards to this, one of the newest restaurant in Davao City which offers fine dining is the Carmen's Garden Bistro. This is just a small restaurant nearby the main streets of Quirino, Davao City.


Last May 30, we had a blogger’s dinner at the Carmen's Garden Bistro, Ping Low Building (fronting Javajive Quirino), Davao City. I am not familiar with the place so my sister and I took a time to find it. It is near from the Barbecue Boss, Quirino. Well, if you are facing the Barbecue boss, Carmen’s Garden Bistro will just be a few meters to your left.

DFAT2014: The White House Fusion Cuisine and Wine Lounge

DFAT2014: The White House Fusion Cuisine and Wine Lounge
May is the month of Davao Food Appreciation Tour (DFAT). Last May 18, 2014, I was invited by Ria Jose to join this tour which was held on the The White House Fusion Cuisine and Wine Lounge, located at the Camella North Point, Bajada Davao City. The White House Fusion Cuisine and Wine Lounge is situated on the right corner from the entrance of the North Point.
Upon arriving at the venue, the guard escorted me to the restaurant. A very friendly receptionist greeted me as I entered the luxurious restaurant. And there they are the Davao Bloggers in a long table. I arrived late so I sat on the side most part of the table. As I take a look into the place, I find it cozy and comfy. No wonder the other guests are having fun on the other table. This restaurant offers a variety of lush dishes and each dish was made with care and has a very detailed presentation. You can even take a look on how the chefs made each dishes through a mirror. This restaurant offers a fine dining which would let you taste the finest food available in the city.
