CDO: What I love about you!

Last April 12, we went to CDO for some business matters. We stayed at the Marigold Hotel with the help of, toured CDO and we ate our heart OUUUUUUT!!!!

We arrived in CDO around 7 in the morning. We rode the Rural Transit Bus from Davao. The only bus that brings Davao closer to CDO, so we have no choice! Road trip, it is!

Fare cost: P575 non-stop (aircon/6 hours travel time), P510 4-stop (aircon/about 8 hours travel time) and P475 (non-air). I think the last trip from Davao is 10 or 11pm, daily.

First stop: Agora Terminal (East Bound)

From Agora, you can ride the "rela" or better known as tricycle to get to the main streets of the city. Around the area, it only cost P7 (seven pesos) for one-way. Anyway, from there, we went directly to our hotel located at Velez cor. Luna St.

Check-in time!! We we're gladly assisted by the friendly staff of the hotel. Sign some docs and then, we were given the key to our room. I'd like to share this. Two days ago before going to CDO, I booked the hotel via an online website, we we're charge P2,500++ for two nights, not bad. However, the hotel staff  told me that we will only be charge P2,076 for a night and they will get P500 security deposit (which is refundable). Nothing -- just like to share how cost-efficient this place is! Hehe. Btw, request a room with no windows, it lessens the noise since it is located in a very busy street :)

This is our room. Clean, cozy, huge enough (w/ refrigerator, aircon unit, built-in cabinet, hot and cold shower and so many stuff) -- for only P1000/night.

This photo only shows half of the room.

Work and Lakwatsa mode: Divisoria to Cogon Market up to anywhere!

Enough for "rela," we then rode a jeepney. All the jeepney of CDO can take you around the city. Great value, right? :)

Food Trip!! We only got some pictures because we we're too busy eating and enjoying the food.

Missy Bonbon - Limketkai Branch

The Pastel of Missy Bonbon is quite different from Vjandep. The filling tastes good but medyo konte. But I enjoyed it a lot! Look at cute blue-yellow box, isn't is so lovely? Add up my fresh orange juice, namnam!

These huckleberry pancakes are oozing with flavor. Another namnam. It goes perfectly with blueberry syrup, butter and powdered sugar as well as with the fresh fruits. The taste is light yet the flavor that brings the after taste is so yummy! Five-star for the soft and fluffy pancake! :)

The cutest cat of Missy Bonbon, staring at me. The interiors of the store is wonderfully blended. The colors are attractive and adds up a cozy yet comfortable feeling.

Butcher's Best Barbeque - Hanes cor. Corrales St.

Indeed, it's the best Bbq CDO has to offer. Affordable and full of awesomeness!!! :)

We haven't got any picture apart from this because we we're too busy eating. The price? It's so affordable.

Boneless Chicken - P15/stick
Pork Bbq - P14/stick add P2 for hot & spicy
Sisig - P85
Solo Sisig - P47
 RICE (you will need a lot of this) - P10 only!

It's tasty and for sure, these meat on sticks will let you crave and comeback for more!! Your P100 will go a loooong way! :) Definitely, a must-try in CDO!

Alberto's Pizza - Divisoria, CDO

No photos. Just check out their website and see what I mean --

Stuffed our tummy with two flavorful pizza + mountain dew with a price of P200. Fun, right? :)

Side trip - CDO's night life

Weekends (Friday and Saturday) - Proceed to Divisoria. From Ukay-ukay to steaming hot grilled stuff, you'll find it there! But be ready to join the crowd! :)

Weekdays - We hanged out at Star Mart, Caltex Station at Velez St. until 11pm I guess. A lot of people we're drinking there as well. Cool place to chill and relax after a busy day. Lexi's Grill (the rela drivers know this), it's a grilling station that serves all your liquid needs! :D

Enjoy your CDO trip just as much as we enjoyed it!! :)

Now, all I can say is -- It's more fun in the Philippines!!!
