Press Release from EON PR

February 6, 2018

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.”

As an added element, useful apps will be pre-installed to help cultivate the utmost Olympic Games experience.

“Samsung’s commitment to the Olympic Movement has increasingly enabled meaningful connections through innovative mobile technologies over the past 20 years,” said IOC President Thomas Bach. “Samsung’s creation of an Olympic Games Limited Edition device reinforces Samsung and IOC’s shared desire to spread the Olympic spirit. 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.”

Samsung to Provide Galaxy Note8 to Paralympians
Displaying a commitment to the Paralympic Movement, Samsung will provide smartphones to all Paralympians at the Paralympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018. Each Paralympian will receive the Galaxy Note8 along with cases that feature the Paralympic Games logo and be exposed to how breakthrough mobile technologies can help make the digital world more accessible for those with disabilities. Samsung has been a World Paralympic Partner since the Olympic Winter Games Vancouver 2010 and an advocate for the Paralympic Movement striving to inspire the spirit of progress and the human challenge ever since.

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.

There's a new museum in Davao City that lets you see a world at a different angle. This newest attraction, The Upside Down House Museum just opened its "inverted" doors to the public last December 21, 2017.

The inspiration of this business venture was from the museum of the same name in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. One of the owners, Ms. Cecille Cayetano-Inventor mentioned that her family is interested to put up a business that is unique and a first in Mindanao.

This kind of attraction was popular in Manila and Cebu last year and we're glad to have one now in our hometown. Ms. Cecille said that they will change the theme and designs every 18-24 months so customers will have something to watch out for.

I've been to art museums in Boracay and Cebu before but this one is different because everything is placed at an unusual angle. You'll see couches, tables, toys, and even toilets on the ceiling or walls. The place is not that huge but they have 12 designs inspired by a usual house. It's like going inside a house but everything is upside down.

It's fun to explore how you will take a picture as if you are floating in the air or walking on ceilings or walls. We had a great time playing and taking photos inside the museum.












Adult - P250
Kids - P150 (3ft and a half)
Senior Citizen - P200

You may bring a pair of socks because shoes are not allowed inside. You can also buy socks for P100*. They have free lockers for safe keeping. Food is also not allowed inside.

If you are looking for a new attraction in Davao, don't miss the Upside Down House Museum. You're family or friends will definitely have a great time.

Operating Hours: 8AM to 5PM / 9AM to 9PM (Holidays)
