Christmas Party at 1A Express Hotel

CDO Bloggers celebrated its Christmas party here at 1A Express Hotel (or 1 Avenue Express Hotel). This hotel is quite new, and it is located at the center of the city. It is very nearby the malls (walking distance actually) like SM Downtown Premier, Ayala Centrio Mall, Limketkai Mall and Gaisano Mall. It is just along the high way so transportation is very accessible.

Anyways, CDO Bloggers’ party was fun, chill and relaxing. Even my kids who were with me enjoyed it. Oh, my eldest daughter, by the way, is also a blogger so it was only my little one who tagged along 🙂

So if you are not from CDO and wish to stay in a hotel where you can relax but at the same time, go to exciting and nearby places, you can always stay at 1A Hotel. Better book a room now especially when they are still offering discounts 😉

The Hungry Plate Resto

It was still early for lunch but we were all hungry after a short visit from my children’s pediatrician. Since there are so many newly-rise establishments in our city, we tried dining at the The Hungry Plate. I was hesitant at first because I knew it was a fine dining restaurant, meaning, quite expensive compared to our go-to restaurant. But my husband wanted to try it…and the kids were also famished. So, off we went and voila, we were their first customer that day, hehe.

But they have a nice ambiance. Their staff were friendly and accommodating. While waiting for food, they have this area where kids can play so my little one didn’t waste her time playing. Their menu was not really that expensive yet not so cheap.

When our lunch was served, we were delighted to see that their good for 4 menu was more than enough for us. And the food tasted good! Overall, we enjoyed our good meal and all were fully sated. It was worth trying in that new resto and we definitely want to go back in there to dine again!

If you want to try this place, visit The Hungry Plate at Corrales St., Cagayan de Oro City.

Oh, I just love their tagline – “We are open when you are Hungry” (“,)
