Fun and Finds at Expo Mom 2016 – Davao

Expo Mom Davao 2016

I look forward to Expo Mom Davao every year because it’s another chance to discover and patronise local goods.

But the last time I’ve been to Expo Mom was in 2014. I’m sure I wasn’t able to attend last year’s expo though my memory of it is vague. I’m not sure what the reason was – I think I was either sick or busy or out of town.

So because I wasn’t able to go last year, I made sure I was able to attend this year’s. It was still held in Abreeza and still didn’t disappoint, but I must admit I bought fewer things this year. Which is most probably a good thing, lol! Look at these pictures I took from the Expo Mom 2015 in Davao.

Upon registration, I was given free Caltrate samples.

And almost immediately upon stepping inside, Yuri ran toward the Stockbridge booth

I remember that their booth in the 2014 Expo Mom was smaller. Also, there were more teachers this time and they were really teaching the kids for free! I asked Yuri if he’s okay on his own (there were a handful of teachers manning the kids and I made sure they remember Yuri’s guardian’s face – which is mine lol). He almost didn’t hear me because he was already so engrossed so I called his attention again and he nodded. I left him there while I explored the other booths. Here are some of the booths that caught my eye:

And here were my finds:

Kai Artisan Chocolates S’mores (P65 each)

(I first had a taste of Kai Artisan Chocolates at last year’s Christmas Bazaar.)

Believe me, these are everything I bought! So far, I’ve already used the Citronella Home Spray (for the office), which worked quite well, and have already eaten the S’mores. Well, my sister ate 1 and a half, leaving half for me haha. It was soooo delicious, but you must eat it in the comfort of your own home because the chocolate melts fast!

    Hi Maan!

    We almost bumped each other pala during the expo mom in Abreeza… I’m Jeany from Tagum and I started reading your blog posts just recently after I discovered it in mommy bloggers… As an expectant mom, I made sure na maka attend ako ng expo nila so I took a leave from work and devoted my time from morning ’til afternoon at the activity area. Sayang di kita napansin dun. It’s an opportunity sana to meet you in person. hehe.
