Celebrate Kadayawan at Home with Grab PH

Kadayawan Festival is that one week in a year where Davao City celebrates its rich culture and bountiful harvest through street dances and food indulgence. The global pandemic may have put a temporary stop to all the festivities, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate at home, can we?

Basic Baking Workshop at the Philippine Baking Institute

I grew up with a mom who loves to bake. When I was still a kid, she would always bake me a chocolate cake covered with colorful sugar icing for my birthday.

The Davao food scene has been abuzz these past few months as several restaurants and coffee shops recently opened in the first half of 2016.
