Ballet Philippines' BRAVO @ Sm Lanang Premier

Founded in 1969, Ballet Philippines already marked its name as the country's cornerstone  in performing arts and Filipino artistry in classical and contemporary ballet.  Thanks to SM Lanang Premier for inviting me and co-Davao blogger Lany to witness a breathtaking performance of classical and contemporary ballet dance production. The show's repertoire includes excerpts from Sleeping Beauty, This is my life, Mutya ng Pasig and a lot more that breathtakingly  wowed , the audience when they  started performing onstage. I was personally blown away by each of their own performances.

Photos i took during the show:

Archipelago 7101 by Barrio Fiesta , a Filipino Dining Experience

Truly, the Philippines is an archipelago surrounded by 7,101 islands- we too are in a tropical country with abundant festive and good food around. 

Last week's invitation by co- Davao Bloggers' meet up with Travel Bloggers visiting Davao in lieu of the recently held Kadayawan 2013, was a total feast. It was my first time to dine at Archipelago 7101 by Barrio Fiesta at Sm Lanang Premier. First to notice is the Filipino inspired ambience inside the restaurant. Immediately i felt it is definitely a top choice for dining experience for  family gatherings, reunion, birthdays or even just a  casual food hangout. Bringing to Davao all the authentic signature dishes from all around the provinces in the country is remarkable.
