The day before the 2nd Mindanao Bloggers Summit!

I was very excited to attend the 2nd Mindanao Bloggers Summit that I arrived there in GenSan City a day before the event. I went to the bus terminal and there I met Kevin of Pinoy Teens on the bus. So my travel to GenSan was not so boring at all. The travel from Digos City to GenSan took around two hours since the Guhing bridge in Hagonoy, Davao del Sur is still under construction and we have to take a long route just to get to the next town which normally will just take 15 minutes and took us around 35 minutes and some of the roads are not paved at all.

We arrived in GenSan at around 5:30 in the afternoon and a car from the city courtesy of Avel of Bariles Republic picked us up at the bus terminal and Aethen was there to see that we are brought to our hotel.

They then invited us for dinner at the Grab a Crab Restaurant which is one of the sponsors of the event.

We did not know where Grab a Crab is located, we were at the hotel lobby of the venue where the summit is going to be held. Me and Kevin waited there for Aethen to give us a text message if it's already okay for us to got there.

To bad that Aethen ran out of load for his cellphone and the text message came late already and they are already eating at the time. So me and Kevin got a tricycle to take us to the place, But the tricycle driver is not familiar with the place and had to ask another driver for the direction of the restaurant.

The group of Avel are seated in another table and we are so late that they're already finished with the main course and they are starting their dessert. We we're seated in the group where Aethen is seated together with the volunteers for the event.

The food served is very delicious, there are at least 7 main dishes that I could remember and mostly sea foods. Crab is served for sure, shrimp, fish and other sea foods to die for. We are the last one to arrive so there are lots of food that are still left and I was amazed that they did not finish eating it all.

The restaurant staff are very accomodating and the service was excellent. I would recommend anyone who visit GenSan City to go and eat at Grab A Crab Restaurant.
