Indeed. Just when I thought my birthday is already over and all that was left in me is the thought that I'm stronger and better at 26, here I am surprised again by a God who loves me.
I didn't know what I did to deserve these countless blessings. All I can remember was that I succumbed to strengthening my faith in God and surrendering to His will in the darkest moments of my life and instantly, He has shown me the light in the form of gratitude. Indeed, life is great!
Thank you Lord God for the amazing things coming my way. Thank you Adidas PH and Nuffnang Philippines for this wonderful post-birthday gift. To check out my entry, you can read it HERE.
P.S: Not to brag about it, but I am truly thankful that in the 5 contests I joined in Nuffnang, I won in these 5 contests, too. Thank you Lord God for an amazing life. When it rains, it pours, so learn to dance in the rain!
Considered as Davao's pride as the very first hotel in the city and the second longest running hotel in the Philippines, Apo View Hotel will celebrate its 65th anniversary on March 23, 2013.
To celebrate this milestone, Apo View Hotel will host a thanksgiving party for its industry partners, valued clients and friends. Lavished spread of cocktails and tapas by the hotel's highly lauded Food and Beverage Team led by Chef Pablito Villanda, together with entertainment from the country's most talented musicians like Jay Durias of Southborder, vocalist Jinky Vidal of Freestyle and famous jazz singer Angel Balbin await guests on this iconic landmark's momentous occasion.
During this event, Apo View Hotel will also give due recognition to loyal employees who have devoted their loves to provide excellent service to the hotel and hotel's guests. The awards will be accorded by Apo View Hotel President and CEO, Chris Pamintuan, who took over last year and belongs to the 3rd generation of the Pamintuan family.
From its origin as a modest lodging house way back in 1948, the hotel has grown into a first-class facility with over 150 rooms, two dining establishments, a bar, a casino, and a wide range of convention and banquet facilities.
With the new leadership supported by an experienced staff, Apo View Hotel celebrates 65th year with the assurance that the hotel will continue to raise Davao's pride by providing locals and guests a uniquely Davao experience with each visit.

I cried when I received the phone call. This time, it was tears of joy. It was the best phone call I received in days.
I even missed the first phone call. I was already starting to get used to not checking my phone all the time but I was startled when it rang to the tune of Sweet Disposition by Temper Trap. A feel good song, isn't it? Unexpectedly, it was an unknown number. It was actually AJ from Nuffnang Philippines. At first, I thought it was just something regarding my Boracay trip I also won months ago but I got back to my senses when he said something about this:
50K. BEST.BIRTHDAY.GIFT.EVER. Thank you Lord! You are an amazing God!
I already told myself not to sign up for events which happen on a weekdays, most especially when the venue is almost 10 kilometers away from where I'm working and I only have an hour of travel time.
But I broke this one when I signed up to watch the Philippine Madrigal Singers' Goin' for the the Gold 50th Anniversary Outreach Concert Tour last March 5, 2013 at SM Lanang Premier, Davao City. It was my first time to watch and hear them sing live and I was truly in awe of their world-class talents. For those who have no idea who they are, the Philippine Madrigal Singers is the Philippines' best chorale group, comprising of highly talented individuals. The Philippine Madrigal Singers have long been already showcasing their singing prowess around the world.

"Well then, if you don't want to try the real durian fruit, how about some durian in your coffee?"
Many of my friends from Manila would always cringe to this idea believing that these two aromatic substances can't be mixed together. However, for the past few years, I may have a difficulty of making them taste the real durian fruit but it has always been easy to convince them to try the durian coffee just by bringing them to Blugre Coffee at Matina Town Square. And would you believe there was even a time when I had to hand-carry a cup of the famous Durian Gatchpuccino to Manila so that others can have a taste of it?
Blugre Coffee is the pioneer coffee shop when it comes to offering the famous durian coffee and still considered to be the best durian coffee in town even though a lot of other coffee shops have replicated the mix. Truly, the original is the best!
Now, the good news is, I will no longer be bringing a cup with me to bring to my Manila friends for Blugre Coffee has been grilling the idea of a very wide expansion of this coffee shop, not only within the Philippines but they are bringing Davao's pride to the world. In a recent meeting with Mr. Benjamin "BMC" Cuaresma and Ms. Joanne Sy, the great minds behind this famous coffee brand confirmed their expansion plans to major cities in the Philippines like Manila, Makati, Cagayan de Oro, Pampanga and Baguio and even to other places like Singapore, Thailand, Kuala Lumpur, Las Vegas and many more.
Of course, the famous Durian Coffee is not what only Blugree Coffee could offer. They also have a lot of coffee and non-coffee drinks available to choose from. Not only that, to complete your coffee experience, Blugre Coffee has added a lot of exciting and delicious offerings to their cakes, pastas, and even breakfast meals. With a lot of branches to frequent to, you will surely have a very good time at Blugre Coffee.
Still the undeniable King of Coffees, Blugre Coffee's vision of being a global brand and a lifestyle is slowly becoming a reality.
