Davao’s new punch line

Kadayawan Davao Punch Ad 2011

Kadayawan Davao Punch Ad 2011

DAVAO’S NEW PUNCH LINE

Davao City has a new treat for visitors as soon as they arrive in the airport.

From August 11 down to August 21, tourists will be treated to the Davao Punch, a new concoction of non-alcoholic drink with a combination of guava, calamansi and pomelo, which was created by a chef of Center for Culinary Studies Davao (CACS Davao).

This new fruit mix was created in line with the city’s campaign published in selected national dailies which highlights the bountiful harvest of fruits and flora during the month of August, hence its celebration of Kadayawan Festival. It also showcases ten of the most vibrant tribes in the city with a tagline of Ten Tribes, One Vibe.

In a full page ad, a young lass in colorful authentic tribal costume holds a drink in her hand with the caption: “FLY TO DAVAO AND WE WILL WELCOME YOU WITH A GOOD PUNCH. At the Davao International Airport, experience our welcome drink, DAVAO PUNCH, a concoction especially made for the guests of Davao City.”

Get a taste of the city’s new “punchline” and visit Davao during Kadayawan Festival!

    • Hi Bong, we will announce the next workshop. Meanwhile, please visit our photo exhibit of Davao images in Abreeza running for the month of August. Thank you again!

  2. ells says

    wow! nice idea.. also the add would be better if the lass is someone from indigenous tribes of davao..

  3. The punch is a reference to that infamous punch seen all over the world (or on the internets) 😉 You know what I mean hahaha! 😉

    DISGUSTING DAVAO. Making light of a human rights abuse by their fascist queen.

    • To an impostor named, Aaliyah.. I’m sure you’re just using that name to create a connotation that a Muslim bad mouthing Davao. We have a good relationship with our Christian brothers and sisters here. As Muslims, we stand by the principle of Mayor Inday and Vice Mayor Rody. We love them more than they love us. =)

    • Assliyah-Beotch says

      Halika ASS-liyah, Lemme see what you got.
      Praktisin nating yang Human Rights mo – Bang bang bang! 🙂

    • akissa says

      tsk tsk..kawawang Aaliyah, I feel sorry for you. Good luck nalang sa’yo.

      Basta kami dire hayahay!

    • wizbren ang says

      oh yeah? our city was listed as one of the most livable city in Asia. that said, how would your city compare to that?

      Our mayor done what a fine mayor would, be a servant of the people. i bet you are living in a city governed by a sissy “trapo”.

    • Piktut says

      Hey Aaliyah,

      Enough of the hatred. What we are standing by is the thought that one wrong move doesn’t undo the great things this Queen of ours has done to the city.

      And, I guess (where ever you may be from), you have never experienced this kind of public service where the majority of its populace stand by and fight “against all odds” for their leader(s).

    • Arcie says

      @Alliyah… malas mo hindi ka nkatira sa Davao, hindi mo na experience ang feeling heaven while on earth.. we are peacefull loving people, pero hwag mo lang hamunin. basta tga davao isog… 🙂

    • guess what, you’re totally wrong, Davao is nowhere near disguisting. May kasabihan nga “When someone is adored so dearly, their detractors would be so jealous they’ll do anything to bring her down”

  5. Miko says

    OMG! you did not just call her a fascist!
    move on girl, that issue was like you: old and boring…
    @ms jojie: nice shots, you’re awesome! wish i can come to one of your seminars. would really love to learn photography 🙂

  6. @aaliyah: You are hilarious. Let’s see if that happens to you. How would you even react? PLUS! ths blog post isn’t even about that. Its about our tourism ads. Get over it. If youd really want a Davao Punch, youll probably get one. Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it from Santa Claus as an early Christmas gift.

  7. To an impostor named, Aaliyah.. I’m sure you’re just using that name to create a connotation that a Muslim is bad mouthing Davao. We have a good relationship with our Muslim brothers and sisters here.

  8. lorie says

    Hi Ms. Alcantara

    Will you be going to Iloilo Dinagyang on January of 2012? A workshop perhaps while you’re there? 🙂 I will be there this January 2012 Dinagyang and would love to join.

    Kind regards,
    JOhn

  13. Ben Izra Dacudao says

    I was suppose to rant and ****… but No. Sometimes I do not want to share Davao to everyone else. 🙂 That way we can preserve the wonderful things we have. They do not know that we have it all… shhhh…

    – Ben of Dacudao Avenue. 🙂

  16. Winifred Townsend says

    And, I guess (where ever you may be from), you have never experienced this kind of public service where the majority of its populace stand by and fight “against all odds” for their leader(s). wow!

  17. To @Aaliyah,
    What kind of mouth do you have? I’m not a Filipino, but I do love the places here in the Philippines especially,Davao. If you are not a Filipino, then just shut your mouth.
