Yellow Fin Seafood Restaurant : Lamian Nga Imo Gyud Balikan

A trip to Davao would not be complete without sampling their seafood, particularly their tuna. Thank you to our gracious host Mr. Boy Angeles for inviting our team for dinner at Yellow Fin Seafood Restaurant.

Yellow Fin Seafood Restaurant is strategically located at Quimpo Boulevard, Matina, Davao City. You can find great selections of seafood here cooked in different Filipino style dishes. 

The Place
Just 2 minutes walk from Viajeros Inn, you can already have a taste of Davao on a plate. You will be welcomed with a  karendirya /cafeteria-style dining, take more steps and you can see their separate air-conditioned dining area for customers who preferred that restaurant feel.

The restaurant also features a photo gallery of "Old Davao" which adds to that "mala-museum appeal". Yellow Fin is indeed a pride of Davao.





The Food
For starters, we had imbao soup - a clear clam soup with ginger and lemongrass. It's light and refreshing and a perfect starter for a seafood main dish. A clam soup for the soul.

If you love seafood, then the seafood platter is perfect for you. The plate is filled with an assortment of seafood, such as Tuna Belly, Pusit, Shell fish and the famous "Bagaybay" (a local term for fish sperm....wahhh!) smothered in garlicky buttery goodness that melts in your mouth.

The sizzling meat platter is also to die for. Filled with beef, pork, chicken bathed in that special gravy sauce. Sauce palang ulam na!
Another best-seller is their Tuna Buntot. The locals loves that "litid" part of the tuna buntot. Pero hinay hinay din sa pagkain, it's more on the fatty side and like eating that crispy pata litid.



They also offer a variety of fresh fruits shakes too. We had durian, pomelo, apple, cucumber and mango shakes.


Daghang Salamat Yellow Fin Seafood Restaurant. Lamian Nga Imo Gyud Balikan!

The Breath-Taking Highlands of Bukidnon

If you are traveling from Cagayan de Oro to Davao or vice versa via Bukidnon-Davao route, you couldn’t ignore this area along the highway.

Located at Davao - Buda National Highway, Quezon, Bukidnon, the Overview Nature and Culture Park is worth your time to stop over, take a rest after long hours of driving and enjoy the breath-taking view of the mountain ranges of Bukidnon.


Walk a few more steps and you can see statues of indigenous people which show their way of life.



The main attraction of this park is the view of the mountain ranges, beautiful rolling hills, and plains of Bukidnon. How can you not be mesmerized by its grandeur?
Go down further in order to see the long and winding road. Seeing the 360 degrees view of the horizon while feeling that gentle and fresh Bukidnon breeze is indeed another validation that the Philippines is truly blessed. I am in awe. "Nakakawala ng pagod!"


About The Overview Nature and Culture Park
The Overview Nature and Culture Park is a public park maintained by the Department of Works and Highways (DPWH). No entrance fee, free cottages. What else can you ask for?


How to Get There (via Public transport)
From Cagayan de Oro, take a bus bound for Davao City. The park is along the highway so you can see it right away as you're approaching from either point. Or simply tell the driver or conductor to drop you off at Overview Park in Quezon, Bukidnon.

All-Filipino cast performs on the RWM stage for Chitty Chitty Bang Bang

Press Release

Resorts World Manila in cooperation with Ultimate Shows Inc., opened its latest theater production Ian Fleming's Chitty Chitty Bang Bang for the first time in the country, at the award-winning Newport Performing Arts Theater (NPAT).



Thirty-four years after its movie version was released in 1968, the English musical was the first staged at the London Palladium in 2002 and became its longest running show ever with a three and a half year run. A UK tour also run from 2005 until 2008.

Prior to the Manila production, the musical was also staged on Broadway, New York; the Capitol Theater Sydney; the State Theater, Munich; and Singapore's Esplanade, among others.



Known to deliver world-class productions that champion Filipino talent, RWM showcases another all-Filipino cast led by stage actor Gian Magdangal who comes back to the country after three years of performing theater roles in Hong Kong Disney's the Gold Mickey and Minnie and the Wondrous Book, and as one of the main performers for Universal Studios in Osaka, Japan.

Gian takes on the role of eccentric inventor Caractacus Potts, while young yet seasoned actress Yannah Laurel plays his love interest Truly Scrumptious.

"I was very excited when I got the part. I'm really a fan of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang and it was a big part of my childhood," shared Laurel. "It will appeal to Filipino audiences because it's a spectacle of a show, the music is beautiful, and for those who are unfamiliar, it's going to be an exciting treat for them because every single number is a producton number," added the two-time Aliw Awards Best Actress in a Musical nominee.

For the roles of the Potts children, 12-year old Noel Comia, a two-time Aliw Awardee for Best Child Performer alternates with 11-year old Albert Silos who has also been cast in several stage productions in the past including RWM's the King and the Cinderella.

Isabeli Araneta-Elizalde also returns to the NPAT stage as Jemina Potts, after her breakthrough performance in RWMs Annie which won her the Discovery of the Year award in last year's Aliw Awards. Alternating with Isabeli is Zoey Alvarade who herself has performed in numerous stage productions including It's a Giant World, Jewel of Antilles:Two Worlds, One Island; Seussical Jr; Wizzard of Oz, and Greased Lightning.

Also cast in the production are Mako Alonso as Boris; Reb Atadero as Goran; James Paollei as Grandpa Potts; Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo as the Baroness; Raymund Concepcion as Baron Bomburst; Michael Williams as the Toymaker; and Lorenz Martinez as the Childcatcher.



Chitty Chitty Bang Bang is directed by Jaime Del Mundo, with assistant direction by Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo, artistic direction by Michael Williams, and the musical score provided by the Manila Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Rodel Colmenar.

Chitty Chitty Bang Bang runs until November 12, 2017 at the NPAT in RWM. Visit www.rwmanila.com or call (632)908-8833 for more upcoming news on RWM's 8th musical production.




What to Expect during "Shooting the Rapids in Cavinti Falls" on a Rainy Season

Laguna is also known for spectacular waterfalls. As matter of fact, just in the town of Cavinti alone, there are still numerous falls that has yet to be discovered.

13th October (Friday) - Tropical Typhoon "Odette" entered PAR leaving the Northern part of the Philippines in danger. Continuous rain in the Laguna province also led to flooding on Saturday (14th October) which makes the Shooting the Rapids not safe for tourist. 

Following the "Safety First" motto, we decided to re-schedule our adventure the following day.

15th October (Sunday) - This is my third time meeting this mighty falls, but I have never seen how mighty and powerful she is until this day.

Watch the full video below and see how the boatmen struggle against the water current.


It was an awesome, adventurous, fun and thrilling adventure for us.




Life Coaching 101

Do you think you have what it takes to be a Life Coach? or do you think you need one?


Life Coaching is an occupation where you work with individuals who wish to make a change in their lives by evaluating their lives on a personal, professional, and spiritual level. They also help individuals to make realistic goals and establish the necessary steps required to reach those goals.


I've been introduced to 3 life coaches just this year alone. And I've seen some of my mentors / friends who are also taking this path. I'm not their client (yet), but just having a conversation with them over a cup of coffee makes me think and re-think what is it really for me. I've been thinking about "Opportunity lost" lately and there something inside that keeps on nagging me. Is it really time to check out that little voice?

So I'm sharing with you guys this Life Coaching 101 (Introduction to Life Coaching) talk happening on October 14, 2017 at D'Cup Coffee Republic.
