My One Year Journey (and counting!) with Team DDI

My Davao Digital Influencers family 
Looking back at the events I've been to in the past 12 months with my blogging family, the Davao Digital Influencers (DDI), I can't help but smile with gratitude. And if I were to choose a DDI moment that's memorable for me since July 2016 up to now, it would be such a daunting task for me. It's because I love every DDI event or activity (even those that I haven't attended). Call it lip service but it's NOT. See, I've grown to love being around with the Team DDI. No dull moment with these guys, promise.  We can light the spark even to the most boring of events.

As a community of influencers (bloggers/journalists/vloggers/social media content creators) across the Davao region, we represent diverse personalities but we blend in and become united for one common goal, and that is to be responsible catalysts of change in the niche we choose to focus on. We inspire and motivate each other to be better version of ourselves.

As one of the DDI officers, I find it humbling to be part of the org's decision-making activities. It feels good to help and serve my fellow bloggers.  I am so overwhelmed at the amount of influence we bring in the community and at the same time,  embracing the challenge to be responsible in what I share or write. Beyond that, it is awesome to have an extended family with members that share the same passion for writing and expressing ourselves via the internet and social media.

On our first year, bumps and turns were inevitable but these only made us stronger and united. We are ready to face the challenge of the years to come.

My favorite is the Giant Burger. Burger patty is so flavorful and satisfying. I just went to burger heaven 😍


UNIQLO Opens 1st Store in Mindanao at SM Lanang Premier Davao

After the long wait, UNIQLO fans here in Davao City and the whole of Mindanao can now shop at their favorite store as UNIQLO opened its doors in SM Lanang Premier yesterday, May 26. And that's not it, another store is set to open in SM City Annex at Quimpo Boulevard Davao City on June 2.

As for me, I was happy to be part of  the exclusive media tour and VIP event a couple of days before the opening. It was graced by no less than Katsumi Kubota, Chief Operating Officer of Fast Retailing Philippines, the mother company of Uniqlo.

Say It With Succulents!

Thank you Trust Home Depot and Botanophilic Davao for my very first succulent!

Yesterday, i had a great chance to get into the world of succulents together with my mommy blogger friends. We were invited to A Mother's Day Pop Up Shop called "Say it With Succulents" hosted by Trust Home Depot and Botanophilic Davao. This runs from May 8 until. May 14.

Us mommies were on for a fun-filled, educational mini-workshop where we learned tips and tricks in growing/propagating succulents. Ms. Ching of Botanophilic Davao taught us some do's and don'ts to keep these plants healthy. I can say that it is pretty simple and not that demanding in terms of caring for succulents. 

(Hmmm, I shall see in a few days and observe the succulent which was given to me at the event, lol)
