Cagayan de Oro: Food, Friends, and Events

It was our first time in Cagayan de Oro (CDO) over the weekend. +Jomar Tigcal and I were speakers during the +GDG Cagayan de Oro6th Monthsary Meetup.

We were at NAIA Terminal 3 at around 5:30 AM (early for our 6:55 AM flight). Surprisingly, our flight departed on time and arrived CDO on time. By 8:20 AM we found ourselves in the one-month young Laguindingan International Airport. By the time we exited the airport, we found our former colleague +Paul Michael Labis who is now home-based in CDO.

Divine Mercy Shrine Our first stop was the Divine Mercy Christ Shrine in El Salvador City, Misamis Oriental. It's one of the cities and municipalities between CDO City and the airport. Paul dropped Jomar and I off at the entrance of the Shrine and we climbed the many steps of stairs (I should have counted it!). Oh and at the entrance they'll lend girls a skirt that you could wear while inside the shrine compound.

Food Trip in Maginhawa: Fruili Trattoria

Last July 20, 2013, +Jomar Tigcal and I made an effort to explore the other restaurants along Maginhawa Street (few steps away from where I live) in Quezon City. This time we had lunch in Fruili Trattoria.

When the tricycle would pass by this restaurant I would always think that it's some fruit yoghurt store. Apparently, it's an Italian restaurant which serves pizza and pasta.

By far, my fave pizza-pasta place is The Old Spaghetti House. This comes close. It's reasonably priced and they serve really good food.
