GoSAKTO lets you create your very own promo for your Globe Prepaid account

Globe Prepaid’s GoSAKTO Create Your Own Promo

The current competition between local telecom companies to catch attention from their subscribers has become stiff, that it often leaves me confused in differentiating the promotions they offer each time. Unlimited text messaging, unlimited calls, unlimited browsing, all day in Facebook, Twitter or what have you. How many texts was that again and for how many days? And what about texts and calls for other networks?? Good luck to my memory. And please, don’t ask me the text codes to send and the corresponding numbers to send these codes to. I am THAT bad in memorizing them. Chances are, it is not just me who has this kind of dilemma. Good thing, Globe Prepaid has introduced a unique way of allowing us subscribers to create our own prepaid promo called GoSAKTO Create Your Own Promo. With this, Globe prepaid subscribers will now have the freedom to choose and create a […]

Home to Davao tourists since 1948

The Apo View Hotel: Soaring To New Heights at 65

You don’t need to be a historian to say that one of the pillars of Davao’s thriving tourism industry is The Apo View Hotel. With the distinction as the city’s first hotel, and as the Philippines second oldest operating hotel (next to Manila Hotel),  the Apo View has carved a name for itself since it first opened its doors in 1948. Over the years, it has stood amidst the challenges of the times and reinvented itself to continually cater to its patrons and to the increasing number of tourists coming in to Davao. The Apo View specially takes pride in its employees who serve as its backbone in providing guests with world class experience that is truly and distinctively from Davao.

The Philippine Madrigal Singers : Going For Gold Show In Davao City

The Philippine Madrigal Singers Seranades Davao As They Go For Gold

I had a rare opportunity to sit at the front row to watch The Philippine Madrigal Singers live last March 6 at SM Lanang Premier here in Davao City. They were here as part of their Goin’ For Gold Outreach Tour in line with their 50th Anniversary. Back then, I could only hear and watch in the news that they have been doing stellar shows here and abroad, bringing accolades for the country. Watching them perform live is indeed a different story. Every song and every performance is sang flawlessly well. And boy, they were entertaining too! For those who think that classical and traditional music is bland and boring, well, think again. Aside from their repertoire of Filipino novelty and traditional music, they also impressed the younger generation when they sang their version of a current local hit, “Pusong Bato” ( revived by the Kulaog band in 2012). They […]
