Fuel.Ph – More Than Just A Place To Hang Out


I finally met with my dear friend Monica again today – and guess where – at FUEL.PH! The last time we met was I think September 2011 – too long ago! If you check out my old blog posts you’ll learn that Monica works in Manila which is the reason why we don’t see each other often. She goes home once every 3-4 months. When she does go home she of course spends time with her family first. And sometimes we don’t get to meet because I have work too. But today we finally got to spend time together. We met after I was done with a number of meetings related to my new job. Oh about my new job, I’ll share about it here soon when we officially relaunch in Iloilo! It’s a very exciting and fulfilling job that fills my days with awesomeness! And those are too many adverbs in one paragraph!  LOL!

So back to the reason why I’m blogging now at midnight. Tim and I met with Monica at Fuel.Ph. It’s this new place at Smallville where people can hang out. But wait scratch the word hang out. It’s actually not just a place to “hang out”. Fuel.Ph is more than that.

It’s Time for Davao Food Appreciation Tour 2012

DFAT 2012 Logo by Mark Cabrera of http://www.markable.me

I know I have not been actively blogging this past few months and my usual excuse is work, travel, work, and work but I think it’s about time for me to forget work for a while and have fun. That’s why I’m so glad to be a part of this year’s Davao Food Appreciation Tour – or more popularly known as DFAT. Let me just say that I am very privileged and fortunate to be one of the chosen bloggers so thank you DFAT 2012 Organizers!

This is going to be my third time to visit Davao. The first time I went there was for my company’s Christmas Party last December 2008, and the second time was May last year with Jane and my younger sister Dainah. Looking at this year’s itinerary for DFAT, I think I will finally be able to see, experience, and taste the real Davao. I know it’s going to be fun because our guides will be the local Davao bloggers. Jane only has positive words to say about these guys so I’m taking her word for it. Hahaha! Anyway I’m excited to meet everyone including other bloggers from the whole country. Davao is one of our (Jane and I) favorite places and we just can’t wait to go back!

Below is the itinerary for the Davao Food Appreciation Tour 2012. Sharing it with everyone so that when the time comes for you to visit Davao, maybe you can follow this itinerary too.
