I'm excited for the Olympic Winter Games this February 9. I really want to see sports on snow or ice. I usually watch it online or free TV coverage at home. I got more excited when I learned that Samsung partnered with the International Olympic Committee and PyeongChang Organizing Committee, and they will deliver over 4,000 devices to all Olympians as well as the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic family, including IOC and POCOG staff allowing them to lean on Samsung mobile technology for a fun experience and connect more conveniently.

This includes the newest Galay Note 8, with the innovative bezel-less 6.3-inch Infinity Display that fits comfortably in one hand. Trust me, I was able to get a hands on of the Note 8 and I fell in love the first time. Exclusively for the Games, the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games Limited Edition will showcase a shiny white back glass to celebrate the winter theme, and gold Olympic rings - inspired by the Olympic Torch – an expression of the Olympic Movement with the union of five continents, and unity worldwide.

 “Throughout our 20-year legacy as an Olympic partner, Samsung has showcased our support of the Olympic Movement by helping spread the Olympic Spirit and enhance connections through our latest technological innovations and immersive experiences,” said Younghee Lee, CMO and Executive Vice President, Samsung Electronics. “We’re proud to provide the PyeongChang 2018 Olympic Games Limited Edition to all athletes in an effort to help them to stay connected, capture and share one of the most memorable moments of their lives.”

It’s because of dedicated partners like Samsung that we’re in the position to provide unforgettable experiences at the Olympic Games time after time.”

I found a new barber shop in town that is truly homegrown Bisaya and gives you that ultimate grooming experience. CHOI Barbers is an upscale barbershop that upholds the true identity of a fearless and confident man. It was founded on the vision of a CHOI man. "Choi" is a Visayan slang word for a confident man, fearless yet charming. So they are committed to giving finest materials, seasoned barbers, and upscale service for that total grooming experience.

I've been to different salons and barber shops but CHOI Barbers gave me an all-in experience and I've been 100% satisfied. From how they accommodate you from start to finish, how good their barbers are, and the sleek overall look of the shop, you can really say that this is the perfect place for a CHOI man.

A regular haircut starts from P240. This is their CHOI Cut Bundle and I think this is the best package I got from any barbershops in town. You will get a haircut, shampoo, a hot towel, and a rejuvenating hand, back, and head massage. This is not a promo because you will get it every time you'll have a haircut from CHOI Barbers.

I never had a relaxing haircut in my entire life until I visited CHOI Barbers. I even fell asleep while having a massage! The best part of my experience was the relaxing head massage. The menthol feeling on my scalp relaxed me. I'd give two thumbs up for that!

They also offer beard trimming or shaving, foot spa, manicure or pedicure, and threading.

I would definitely recommend CHOI Barbers to you. I've been recommending this to my family, friends, and workmates. You will get a hundred percent premium service all in.

They are located at JJ's Commune, Loyola St., Bo. Obrero, Davao City. Just beside STREETS Lifestyle Bar.

Contact Number: (082) 327 3153
Operating Hours: Monday-Sunday 10AM to 8PM

Thanks for dropping by and have a great day! - Jexx
