My World#36 Mindanao Trade Expo

It is now officially Kadayawan week and there are several activities going on around Davao City. The festival officially started August 17, 2009 but several events already kicked off prior to that date.

I made it a point to check out the Agro-trade fair (located at the back of SM Davao Mall) last Saturday afternoon. The highlight of the fair is their Horticulture Exhibit which showcases the beautifully exotic flowers of which Davao is quite well-known for.

Earlier that day, I went to see the Mindanao Trade Expo at the Central Bank of the Philippines compound. The trade expo featured the products of Mindanao towns. I saw some quite interesting products there aside from the usual items I have seen the previous years ago.

One of the interesting products that I have seen are the hereunder flowers that are made of bread crumbs. It has a wax-like appearance and they are really pretty.

I bought a bottle of vinegar made in coconut juice and also, went around the event area trying out food samples like jams, candies, salads and snacks. Compared to the previous years' expo participants, there were few participants that came this year from all over Mindanao. Nevertheless, it was still pretty interesting. I shall post more pictures in my subsequent post/s.

The interior of the Davao Hall is lovely. But flowers made from breadcrumbs? Astonishing! They look so beautiful.
