few months ago, i was asked by ShopBack.ph to be one of their endorsers/ambassadors. It was really a privilege for me to part of this awesome company. That was one of the best things that happened to me last year.

They gave me a chance to shop with their partner brands. And I chose to purchase from Zalora.ph - I really had fun online shopping because i know that i can get a great discount in all my purchases.

well if you dont know about ShopBack.ph - you may visit my old blog post to know more. (http://theklydejarabelo.blogspot.com/2015/10/ShopBackPH.html)


SALOMON in partnership with R.O.X brings you the first ever CITY TRAIL RUN 2016. The first in Mindanao, and the first in Davao City. It's not your ordinary marathon where you'll run across the streets of Davao City. This City Trail Run is a 12 Kilometer run that will start at the Davao Rizal Park just beside the Davao City Hall and ends at the famous Davao Crocodile Park. This will happen this coming January 31, 2016.


Last year, i was chosen by the Mango Man staff to be one of the few male bloggers to be invited to their exclusive store launch in Abreeza Ayala Malls. We were given a chance to pick out some of the items that we would like to own, limited to the amount in the gift card given hehe.

This time i chose a navy blue chino pants and a loose shirts since i was about to go travelling around Asia this time. So i wanted something comfortable and easy to wear. 

I actually don't have an exact style in mind by the time i pulled out these items hehe. well here's something i came up with for my trip.

The All New Montero Sports 2016 Launching

KarAsia Motors Inc Davao and Mitsubishi launched the much anticipated mid-size SUV is now out in the market - the 3rd generation Montero Sport last January 9, 2016. It was a night filled with car enthusiasts, loyal patrons of Mitsubishi and people from the media as well as invited guests.

The launch was quite interesting for Montero cars faced an issue that really affected the sales and quality of the product. However, Mitsubishi managed to come up and launch a newly designed Montero Sport. I am not really a car enthusiast, but i am amused by how cars are designed, made and even looks like - both exterior and interior aspect.


During my visit to Cagayan de Oro City last December, i was lucky enough to be able to experience the night life in the city. I'm not really familiar of the night life scene in the city but i really wanted to experience how Kagay-anons party and chill.

I came across this bar only through social media and i think to myself that whenever i visit the city, i would really visit the place, and finally i did!

Somewhere Else is CDO's hole in the wall which offers an extensive collection of local & imported beers & liquor, complemented with the right comfort food and good music.


It's been a while since the last time i visited Cagayan de Oro City. Luckily, just last December, i got to visit CdeO and been able to roam around the city. A lot has changed - for the better. hehe

One thing that I always look forward whenever i'm in another city is to try their food. A friend of mine, Mikko Mahinay, invited me, together with my siblings and cousins, over for dinner in one of the new restaurants in the city - Boy Zugba.

GREEN BANANA HOTEL: Davao’s Fresh Addition to the Booming Tourism Scene

On average, Davao city gets a booming 1.4 million visitors each year. And, with the rise of social media’s positive campaigns and with the efforts of our local tourism board exhibiting how life is truly here, that number is bound to increase yearly. 

This is not a surprise. Davao, being the hub of commerce and industry in the Southern Mindanao region, continues to straddle two worlds – the new and the old. But what makes Davao City different from other cities in the Philippines and in the Asia-Pacific Region that would make it ideal for tourism and investment? A lot, actually, we have affordable utilities, outstanding records in peace and order, equipped for calamity- and emergency- response , business- friendly, environment-friendly and most of all, we have a strong and dynamic local government.


Happy New Year! Finally it's 2016 already. Another year has passed and now we are given another year to start over, set new goals, prepare new plans in life, and continue to live our lives to the fullest! 

To start this year right, i wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone for making my 2015 a great one. It has been a roller coaster ride - full of ups and downs. There are experiences that I must let go and consider to be part of the past already and there are some experiences that i will treasure forever. To those people - my family, friends and social media followers - who has been part of my 2015, thank you for making my year worthwhile. I am so grateful to have you all in my life.

To the sponsors and the brands that I worked with last year, thank you so much for trusting me, and for giving me the opportunity to represent you and the brand.

And of course, my Lord, my Savior, and my God, thank you so much for always being there for me. When i'm at my highest and lowest point in life, you're always there to guide me and always enlighten me to choose the right path for me.

Now i'm ready to take the challenges and to face what is ahead for me this year! I just have to let go of the things that hurt and welcome positivity in my life! Let's get it on 2016!
