J.Co Colors Up Davao City!



J.CO Donuts & Coffee finally makes a royal splash in the Crown Jewel of Mindanao. With the past 2 years seeing it make its mark in key cities in the Philippines, J.CO finally opens up its first store in Davao City on November 6, 2014 at Ayala’s Abreeza Mall. 



Opening with a tremendous welcome by the DavaoeƱos, J.CO perks up the Davao metro hub with surprise give-aways of free fonuts for the first 50 customers of its newest store. Bringing the long wait to an end, excitement flooded the Abreeza Mall branch as J.CO-ers flocked to the store.










DavaoeƱos can now find themselves enjoying and indulging in the unique and dynamic J.CO lifestyle concept with a fully innovative range of donuts showing off with their quirky names, full-bodied and comforting cups of J.COFFEE beverages, and cool, fresh servings of J.CO’s very own J.COOL frozen yogurt.  Senses were filled with the enticing aroma of freshly-made donuts and the energizing scents of hand-crafted coffees and beverages. Bestsellers and favorites like the Alcapone, white Belgian chocolate with sliced roasted Californian almonds on top of J.CO’s signature soft-bite donut, and the Jcoccino, J.CO’s signature cappuccino, made their presence known at every table as skilled bakers churned them out by the dozen and the baristas brewed away at the coffee bar.




What started out as a concept by Indonesian entrepreneur Johnny Andrean with a first branch in Jakarta, Indonesia in 2005, J.CO Donuts and Coffee has since opened up branches in Malaysia and Singapore with the first Philippine branch opening last 2012.

With its most recent venture into the south’s urban metropolis, J.CO is sure to mark another milestone as it continues to be Southeast Asia’s fastest-growing coffee chain.


Thank you so much for spoiling me, Jco!

Tokyo, JaFUN-ventures

As promised anticipated, here is what everyone's been waiting for.
No more words, Japan is breathless.
Enjoy a virtual tour through photos that I rummaged from my DSLR to my iphone photos plus grabbed photos from friends! So please bear with the different photo qualities.

Obligatory candid slash tourist shot








































Meet Dani and Raph, two of my best buds during the trip.
So this is a semi caution coz the next succeeding photos will be bombarded by their faces! Lol






I observed that most of their establishments have hangers. What for? For their trench coats and suits ;)














Meet the Team Escape Route: Hubert, Rap, Dani and me!




And of course my first photo with the "Squammies" (Rap coined this term that means squaters or poor) my clingy buds everywhere I go. And mind you, we are from different schools/ regions and we are still so clingy!
From L-R: Me, Rap, Pat, Van and Dani




Shibuya!




Hokkaido group




























I forgot the term in Japanese so I coined it the "holy smoke" where Japanese myth believes this smoke can enhance any part of your body depending where you apply it.


This is by far my most OJ moment in Japan seeing my bestie giggling this overly served ice cream! I literally laugh for more than 5 minutes or so because of this.


Hachiko 


One thing I also loved about Japan (Idk if you've noticed already) is I can take photos of shops and stores! Unlike in the Philippines, it's not allowed. For instagrammers like me, this is a bonus!














NY in Jap?










Temple in Asakusa





Thank you Jenesys 2.0 for the opportunity!
Japan for the lovely place
and friends for the fun!
