(Yes, Davao Portal Team was there!)
The Davao Portal team was one of the invited guests during the brand launching of Godiva Skin Care products held at SM City Davao (Annex) on February 2, 2013. It was really an exciting event for us (we could not afford to miss it) for two main reasons: (1) it was our first business engagement since this website was launched in July 2012, so we thought it’s really a privilege to be part of the said event; and (2) because it was Godiva’s first of its series of product introductions to Filipino consumers ; it’s an honor for us Davaoeños to experience it first – yes, they have chosen Davao for its initial market distribution (the new Godiva skin care product is not yet available in other regions – not even in Metro Manila).
So, how’s our Godiva experience? We have captured some photos below to tell it all!

We got a chance to roam around even before the program started and the above photos show the team taking some shots (with images of those who underwent FREE skin care treatment at the background).
Ms. Claudette Centeno from ABS-CBN, the host of the event, started the program with some exciting announcements – including our chances to win a lenovo phone.
