Prologue: Davao Food Appreciation Tour 2012

It was around October of last year when I got a message from Kusina Maria. "Be part of Davao's sinful event. One slot has already been given to you. Good luck."


Foodgasm


K. CHALLENGED ACCEPTED.

I have heard about DFAT a year ago and I never thought that I'd become one of the organizers of this event. And yes, it's not easy to become one. During the planning stage, we wanted it to become bigger and more 'fun'.

The Davao Food Appreciation Tour (DFAT) is an annual event organized by Avatar Media and some officers of Davao Bloggers, Inc. This year, the team is composed of:


The tour aims to promote not just the Davao-based restaurants but also the whole region. Last May 4-7, the participants did nothing but to eat, to tour and to explore the best of Davao Region. And to quote Kuya Orman's famous quote for this event, "It's the only time of the year when gluttons rise and diets fail."







This year, DFAT 2012 is composed of:

Our heartfelt gratitude to our sponsors:




Four days of gluttony.
Twelve restaurants.
Thirteen participants from different parts of the country.
One goal.

Let the hunger games begin! May the odds be ever in your favor.

  20. Ang galing naman ng event na to. Sana mafeature nyo ang madami pang lugar na may masarap na pagkain. Ang saya lang pag fellow bloggers ang kasama parang may sarili lang kayong mundo na kayo kayo lang ang nakakaintindi. That's how I feel pag kasama ko ung mga blogger friends ko. =)
