Acquaintance Party at Green Isle Resort

Last weekend, we had an acquaintance party at Green Isle Resort in Samal Island, (Island Garden City of Samal). The resort is not as famous as the other resorts in Samal but we chose the place as a venue because the owner of the resort is a former colleague and so we were able to get a discount for the payment in using the place. We have never been to the place as well, so for a change, we had our acquaintance party at Green Isle Resort.

Green Isle is just a medium-size resort and its developments are still on going. They are constructing now a new building in addition to the existing beach house and a number of closed cottages made of native materials. In the lower portion, near the seashore, there are a number of open cottages which is very cozy if you want to get closer to the beach. I love the fact that the place is generally cool. You don't feel the heat of the sun because there are still plenty of trees surrounding the place.

When we were there, we had the place exclusive for us which made me more appreciate the Green Isle Resort. The space is just fitted for us numbering about a hundred. We enjoyed a lot playing volleyball and a lot of parlor games.

I also brought with me my little girl and it was her first time to go to the beach after being prohibited by her surgeon after her operation for fear of infection. My little one is enjoying a lot, dancing with the videoke music, cheering together with some colleagues when each team were playing volleyball in the field.

We had our food catered by Green Isle. Our food consist of pork fillet, beef afritada, pancit, lechon and fruit desserts like watermelon and pineapple. We had so much fun. And I was very happy that my little girl was enjoying a lot too.

Native Delicacies

When I went to a trade fair in the city hall with hubby, I was amused to find these foods that I have never tasted. Some of the foods look familiar but there are also those that I find really rare. You can never see them sold in malls or department stores. The booth that display those delicacies are owned by our Maguindanao, Tausog and Maranao Muslim brothers. Aside from foods, their booth also showcased some native products made by them.

Hubby, the ever curious one tried to buy some of these foodies and he loves the taste of the sweet ones like dudol . Have a great Saturday everyone. Happy weekend:).

Motor Week at Gaisano Mall Davao

Guest blogger: Raynan of Raynan's World

Its my first time to do a guest post, and I'm glad to do it here in Davao Delights. I had no work on Monday so me, my wife and Keona went to the mall so I can have my hair cut. When we arrive at the mall I notice plenty of people gathering at the atrium. There was an exhibit of different motorcycle or motor bike. Hmmm.. I'm not that sure whats the correct term for it. The different designs of the bikes were nice. Although I'm not a big fan of this type of vehicles, but I do appreciate the people who are creative in designing their bikes. Here are some of the photos of the exhibit.
