10th Davao Trade Expo

23 10 2008

This morning I went to Davao Convention Center to view the 10th Davao Trade expo. My presence at DavCon was just out of curiosity, but I was amazed at the wide array of products exhibited. Flowers of different variety are showcased, native crafts and furniture abound, there are even meat products sold! Agricultural products were also exhibited. And there were also booths by some of the industries and travel agencies here in Davao. The exhibitors come from different places in the country. To name a few: Pearl growers from Zamboanga, fruit growers from North Davao and North Cotabato areas, meat producers from Davao, entrepreneurs from Cebu, plastic manufacturers from Panabo, and even IT firms from Manila.

My visit to the Trade Expo caused me to realize and appreciate all the more the potentials we Filipinos have. Our country is blessed with a lot of resources, natural and human alike, and the quality of our products can compete with the products from other countries. This I already know, but being surrounded by the beautiful crafts and artworks of our local people I can’t help but wonder at the pure and raw talents Filipinos have.

My congratulations and thanks to the organizers of the expo, and to the plainclothes and uniformed police officers for keeping the area safe and secure.


Digital Filipino Club Event

22 10 2008

The Digital Filipino and Bloggers event was held last night at the Grand Regal Hotel. The event was sponsored by PAGCOR (Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp.), who is a member of Digital Filipino Club.

The objective of the event is to establish network of bloggers all throughout the country. The event promotes blog awareness and shows the fun and opportunity in blogging.

The top 100 bloggers in the country according to ratified.org was presented. I am proud that my friend’s blog, jehzlau concepts got first in the list. Congratulations Jehz! I wish I could also enter the top 100 bloggers. Please help me in! hehehe

I met friends and schoolmates in the event. I also came to see Davao bloggers. It was an acquaintance. The venue was great, the food was great, and the crowd was great.

At the end of the program there was a live band performance, a mini poker tournament (I wish I know how to play poke, I could have joined), free food and drinks. Casino game checks were given to us.

The event was successful. Congratulations Digital Filipino and PAGCOR!

I am looking forward for more events here in the city.
