After refreshing at our official hotel at Ice Castle Experience Hotel. We then start our tour. 1st in our list is Pacman Sports Bar which is just walking distance from our hotel where we Davao and CDO Bloggers accommodated. Going to Pacman Sports Bar is full of excitement since we’ve heard that the first boxer in history to win seven world titles in seven different weight division and now Congressman of lone district of Sarangani Province – Hon. Emmanuel Dapidran “Manny” Pacquiao, hoping we can have a glimpse of him and prolly we can have picture with him. In the later night after our bloggers meetup at Piyesta KTV and Resto Bar, we see Manny Pacquiao playing billiards but sadly we can’t go near him for a picturial.
The 1st Mindanao Food Appreciation Tour and SOCCSKSARGEN Summer Safari started off with lunch at Ranchero Grill Steak and Seafood Restaurant located at Tionko Ave. corner Arellano St., very near the Bangko Sentral building. This is not my 1st time visit, so i’m familiar with the location. I arrived at Ranchero Grill around 12:30pm as per advise by Ria for briefing whats going to happen and plus some reminders. But, I already have my lunch since Ria said almost all of the food to be serve are with pork. Having full stomach doesn’t stop me from eating again, why? because theres sea foods to feast on contrary to all pork menu warned before. I can’t resist indulging myself and i start digging in! yay!
