On January 30th, I decided to go to Davao via an L3, an enclosed jeep. I got off the L3 at the Annex SM City. Once I arrived there, I found Krispy Kreme. Yes! Krispy Kreme! It’s in Davao and guess what the donuts taste like Krispy Kreme donuts. I was beyond delighted because up until that day, I thought J. Co had the best donuts in Davao, but I was proven wrong by Krispy Kreme.
I ordered Klassic Brioche Ham because I had never seen something that looked like that in Krispy Kreme. I thought it was some sort of crazy donut at first, but it was a breakfast choice with ham and melted cheese on top. And of course, I had to order my fave, ice cream filled donut. It was as delicious in Davao as it was in America.
After I finished breakfast at Krispy Kreme, I decided I wanted to go to a movie at SM Lanang. Instead of taking a taxi, I decided to brave it out and take a jeepney. I was so proud of myself! I took a jeepney from Annex SM to Claveria and then another jeepney from Claveria to SM Lanang which had a sign for Sasa. Once I arrived in SM Lanang, I decided I wanted to see Mortdecai. It was a fun movie with Johnny Depp, one of my fave actors and Gweneth Palthrow, one of my fave actresses. Overall the movie was good, but it did seem to drag on and on.
Once I finished watching a movie, I decided I wanted to have lunch at Jaloopz Cafe. I ordered sweet and sour lapu lapu fish and my cousin ordered a chicken sandwich. My meal was delicious, but her meal did seem a bit boring according to her. After lunch I decided to head off to Abreeza. I found a cool painting of Audrey Hepburn! Yes! I found fine art in a mall in Davao! I was super excited I had to take a picture of it. After exploring Abreeza some more, we decided to go to TGIF. I decided to order chicken quesadillas and my cousin ordered Grilled BBQ Chicken. The quesadillas were delicious as usual, but I fell madly in love with the grilled BBQ CHICKEN!!! As in MANOK nga MANOK!
Once I left TGIF, JunJun and I decided to stay at Pinnacle Hotel and Suites just to see how cool it was cause it looked really cool on their website! Guess what! It was awesome! I loved the ceiling when you walked in. The bed was comfy and their shower had a shower curtain. Yeah, apparently shower curtains are not a must in hotels in the Philippines. For example, Tune Hotel did not have a shower curtain. The 5th floor of the Pinnacle had a pool and a small garden. I took a stroll in the garden at night and enjoyed the view of the city from the garden. I did not have a bathing suit with me so I was not able to try the pool, but I’m sure it would have been fun.
Very close to the hotel was Ice Giants Desserts and Snacks. I got to have my first halo halo during this trip in Davao. I know there will be more halo halos to come, but I don’t know if the other halo halos can beat my ginormous halo halo. It was yummy! As in LAMI GYUD! Check out was 12 pm at the Pinnacle, but I woke up much earlier and was able to enjoy their awesome breakfast. I had a fresh fruit shake for a drink, mango of course and I ordered a pork tocino meal with scrambled eggs and garlic rice. And that concluded the Davao fun for this time. I hope to blog about more coming soon. What an adventure I had!
