International football super star Cristiano Ronaldo, an Herbalife Nutrition-sponsored athlete since 2013, was recently named “The Best FIFA Men’s Player” for the second consecutive year. 

The award was determined through a combined voting process that included the votes of team captains and managers from national teams all around the globe, an online public ballot of football fans, and votes by a select group of global media representatives.

“Cristiano proves once again that his dedication on the field and commitment to nutrition has elevated him to the top of his game, earning him one of FIFA’s top honors, The Best Men’s Player Award,” said Rich Goudis, CEO of Herbalife Nutrition.

Ronaldo, named the most famous athlete in the world by ESPN, adds to other major awards and accomplishments in 2017. He won the 2016/17 UEFA Men’s Player of the year for the second consecutive year, after once again leading Real Madrid to the UEFA Champions League title and finishing as the top goal scorer, as well as helping his team win the Spanish La Liga cup. In 2017, he also became the first player to score 100 goals in UEFA Champions League and European competitions. He currently holds four Ballon d’ Or titles, the annual football award presented by France Football, and is in the running this year for his fifth.

Herbalife Nutrition-sponsored athletes use Herbalife® products before, during and after training and games. As part of its ongoing commitment to improving sports nutrition and performance, Herbalife Nutrition launched Herbalife24® CR7 Drive in collaboration with Cristiano Ronaldo, a sports drink designed specifically to meet the nutritional needs of the global soccer legend and benefit athletes of all levels.

Our Davao weekend Escapade, 3 days is not enough to experience the attractions and activities. Davao City has many activities  to offer so I suggest 5 days  much better to explore the place.

Like us we included Samal Island on our itinerary since we are in Davao , most travelers often make it a point to visit Samal Island to maximize their vacation in Davao.

Being an employee with limited leaves and have toddler to travel is sucks, but for me and my husband we always make things possible for our passion to travel even for limited time.

From the Airport we took taxi Going to Sasa Wharf or local called it “onse”, ride Barge going to Samal Island . We spent overnight at Samal Island.

And after Samal Island , we go to recreational activities at Eden Nature Park and stay there until 3pm on our second day. After Eden we go back to City we stay at RED Planet Hotel.

Last halfday in Davao we reserved for City Tour and Pasalubong shopping. we try fresh delicious durian instead of bring it in the hotel , we ate durian as much as we can at Bangkerohan Public Market. guest are not allowed to bring durian inside the hotel.

I was Surprise of the high prices of mangosteen Php 500.00 per kilo, durian 100.00per kilo, Pomelo 600 per box 9 pcs.

before flying back to Manila on the next day .on our last night we decided to have dinner at  Jack Ridges and drop by at People’s Park it is open to the public for free lots of security in the entrance of the park.

Jack Ridges one popular destination when it comes to dining and recreation. great place to dine with family and friends, their in-house singers serenade you while you are eating , I love the panoramic view of the city light its so relaxing while we are having dinner , during the night it’s a great spot to chill similar to Antipolo.

Davao is safe to travel  ,most discipline and progressive. The city was cleaner than Manila  and it felt safe to walk around people are very kind and accommodating. even some are hard to speak tagalog.

Unfortunately we skipped Philippine Eagle and Crocodile farm on this trip because we don’t had enough time may be next time . our trip was hectic.

 thank for dropping  !!!


When you are in DAVAO make it a point to visit Samal Island and  take a side trip to this lovely Island,  from the Airport  it is just kilometers away to Sasa Wharf, it just around 15 minutes sea ride from Sasa wharf  and you will reach Samal. we didn't have an itinerary and we  just have only one day to stay and  visit Samal so we wouldn't be wasting any time.

The modes of transportation on the island are tricycles or trikes for those backpackers and budget travelers like us, Habal-habal is the most convenient.  We hired a Habal-habal to take us around the island as we look for a place to stay first we go to Costa Marina but i was fully booked so Kuya suggest us the Fernandez Resort but before going to Resort, we explore around the island with this habal habal kuya charges us for minimal fee.

As soon as we arrive at Fernandez Resort i considered one of the most affordable resort in Samal that you can spend for the backpacker like us. actually so much space to play around,,, playground for my son, cafeteria,,, lots of cottages  and swimming pool if you don't like to swim at beach,, because beach wasn't that nice and its low tide during our stay. for us that's fine because we did not intend to stay for long we just want to experience Samal we will go back to City on the next day.

Outside our resort there is a terminal of motorcycles so there's no problem getting around exploration Samal Island offers a wide array of activities. also from our resort quite near to the bus terminal of Island City.

if you are in Samal Island don’t forget to drop by at Ryan Special Native Bibingka, Ryan’s Bibingka is made from rice, fresh coconut meat, and coconut milk. All of the ingredients are natural. so delicious bibingka !!!one of their stall is just across the bus terminal of Island City Bus.

we tried V Farmers restaurant outside the resort walking distance or you can ride tricycle if you want. quality food and huge serving for affordable price.

There are so many places to go to in Samal,  we were not able to experience all due to lack time. We just stuck on one  area at PeƱaplata . may be next time !!!

thank for dropping !!!
