Among those my eyes laid upon at the buffet selection, personally this has to be my fave… salmon! I was so happy even with just this! My fave indulgence in seafood buffets is the salmon. It was the first to be gone from the displayed buffet choices. Diners there that night sure love salmon, just like I do!

My boys and I were blessed to be among those who had the first glimpse through an exclusive tour on that day before the public opening. Grateful for Ms. Charisse Puentespina’s invite! 🙂

The Puentespina’s Malagos Chocolates from Davao City have become popular and has continued to gain recognition even abroad.

SINGLE-ORIGIN CHOCOLATES
Our farm, Malagos, takes its name from malakas na agos, which means “strong flow of water”. It is located along the equator where cacao thrives best. Here, the soil, the sun, the climate – our environment – come together to create the unique terroir that gives our beans their identity, an individuality that cannot be replicated anywhere in the world.

Cacao beans sourced from our unique terroir and singular locale carry with them a more distinctive and pronounced taste. Chocolate connoisseurs know that exceptional chocolate is one that can trace its origins and can be produced consistently.
We are proud to say that ours is single-origin chocolate.
Our beans come from only our farms and its immediate environs,from small farmers who also care for their trees themselves. We teach them good agricultural practices so that we get the beans that give us good chocolate. We observe fair trade to make sure everyone benefits from what we believe are one of the best.
