The 1st Microsoft Authorized Reseller Store in Mindanao opened it’s door last August 1 at the NCCC Mall of Davao. I’m glad to be one of the few selected bloggers to attend this event. They had on-the-day discounts for all attendees. The first 30 customers who purchased a Lumia 930, 830, 730, 640 XL and 540 got a FREE Nokia X and a choice among the Coloud Headet, Coloud Speaker, or a Power Bank. Then, the next 50 customers got P1,000 discount on their Lumia purchase.

It was a very good day to buy your new Microsoft device. With all of their promos and discounts, I really pushed my mom to buy at the store right away. Though these promos were only available during the opening day, the store will be selling Microsoft devices everyday during the mall hours.

I never imagined to meet a Filipino representative from Next Top Model franchise. So when Abreeza invited me to join their new Fashion Forum, I never hesitated to say NO. Why? Because their guest was Monika Sta. Maria, the last Filipina standing in the latest season of Asia’s Next Top Model. She talked about her career in modeling and what she learned from the reality show.

  photo Monika Sta. Maria_5_zpsjfhn7rau.jpg

Monika is the 1st runner up in AsNTM Season 3 next to Ayu Gani from Indonesia. She was a volleyball player from De La Salle University and a psychology graduate. She also won the Century Tuna SuperBods last 2012.

During the Fashion Forum, she shared to us her experiences when she auditioned for the show. She actually auditioned for the show’s Cycle 2 but she didn’t make the cut. So when she heard that there will be another audition, she really came in first and proved to the panel of judges that she is really serious in joining the next cycle. She successfully made the cut along with Amanda Chan and a Davaoeña Franchesca Lagua.

A lot of fans were able to ask her questions during the interview. And of course, I stand up and asked a very simple question. Fanboying here. LOL!

photo Monika listens as an audience member asks a question_zpszvmcfyjr.jpg
You were a volleyball player in DLSU, right? Then, what made you decide to do modeling?
“Oh, actually I am into modeling na talaga and then I want to do something in school so, I became a volleyball player. Kaya lang, magkaiba kasi ang diet ng isang volleyball player compared sa pagiging model. Vigorous kasi ang training namin. So I really have to choose.**”

We also had a chance to take pictures with her on stage.

A selfie is mandatory. So here she is.
She’s very tall and skinny but just right. She really loves all of her fans and never lets them down if they asked for a selfie.

Thanks to Ms. Cheekie Albay and Abreeza Ayala Mall for inviting me again in this monthly convergence of fashion and lifestyle.

The Davao’s most anticipated and exciting bazaar is back on its 5th year! The Great Kadayawan Trade Fair and Bazaar 2015 is now officially open at Davao Convention and Trade Center located at F. Torres St. It’s a gathering of Davaoeño businessmen, food shop owners, and entrepreneurs  to market and sell their food and products. I got the chance to visit some shops and booths at the bazaar with my fellow Davao Bloggers yesterday. Here are some of them that I would recommend you to visit.

GET ORGANIZED
photo Kadayawan10_zpsjksn2tvm.jpg

I love this shop! I’ve been eyeing to buy organizers for my travels and even for my not-so-organized stuff at home and in the office. Well, maybe they are the answer to my not-so-organized life. #Hugot. They sell unique, high-functionality, trendy, and affordable organizers, bags, and travel packs for a clutter-free lifestyle. They are also selling in all CHIMES Specialty Stores and NCCC Supermarket.

CAITLYN’S DIMSUM
photo Kadayawan5_zpstzpr0ntc.jpg

They started selling dim sum from the same trade fair last 2013 and after that, they were the talk of the town. They serve the best siomai and siopao right now and I just want to take home some.

They are located beside Caitlyn's so it’s not hard to find them. They serve flavored lemonades in a unique sling pack. You can choose from 4 flavors - Green Apple, Kiwi, Passion Fruit, and Lychee. You must try the Passion Fruit flavor!

KAI’S ARTISAN CHOCOLATES
photo Kadayawan20_zps2z1aigi5.jpg

I must say, this made me happy the whole night! You got to love chocolates and you got to love KAI’S. Why? It’s home-made and it’s made from scratch! My eyes were gleaming when I had a chance to taste all of their chocolates in one seating. The best one for me was the Matcha Chocolate.

THE GRIDDLE

They are the newest in town, but they surprised us with what they have to offer. They serve burgers with 100% pure beef and it’s also 100% delicious! You got to order their Bacon burger or their Homemade Bacon and Mozzarella Sandwich.

SM Lanang Premier presented their latest denim collections from the SM Youth Brands last July 18 in the #DenimCitizens Fashion Show. I was invited to check out the latest denim wear, showcased on the runway by Davao’s top models and the SM Youth Ambassadors.

photo IMG_7518-1_zpsm5du63vp.jpg

There was an ensemble of denim pieces from Tee Culture, Markus, and a lot more. I never thought you can wear denim on denim without looking like your Aunt from the 80′s. Haha! Well, I gotta admit, I’m really not good in style.

SM Lanang Premier was struck by teens and young adults because they know that the guests of the fashion show were the SM Youth Ambassadors, LA Aguinaldo, and Richard Juan. Richard was one of the finalists of Eat Bulaga’s Foreignoy and LA is the AXE Gold Man and the newest Asia Model Star.

photo IMG_7534-1_zpslc5mewom.jpgphoto IMG_7524-1_zpsleao6b8x.jpg

We’re glad that we had a chance to meet the Ambassadors and the head stylist of the show, Mr. Bjorn Medina.

Rush down to SM Lanang Premier to get the latest denim trends. All of their denim wear is located at the Ground Floor near the entrance of SM Department Store.

Thanks for visiting! Have a great day!
