Zipline Of Love (and Lols)

Photobucket

I had the most awesome time of my life when droves of blogger friends from Manila, GenSan and CDO came over for the Davao Food Appreciation Tour. Part of the sked was to go ziplining on Saturday, March 14. That was, bar none, the funnest part of the three-day event (don't get me wrong, food was great too). *Little* did the others know that they were in for a big surprise -- my friend Jay proposed to my other friend Aileen while she was still attached to the harness! Talk about hung up to dry hehe! But I have to give props to my main man Jay. What he did was ... uh. The sweetiest thing? I'm proud to say that I had a small part in it, even if it meant acting and lying to Aileen's face. (Sorry Aileen LOL)

They're Engaged!!

Congratulations to both of you! Mwahugz!

Thanks to the all of the staff of Excelerator for being the coolest while we were planning this. Kudos to their CEO Matt McNeal for pulling all the strings.

Out of all the ziplines I've been to, Excelerator is the BEST of the BEST. It's also convenient coz it's very close to the city (~20 minutes). Not to mention the longest and fastest zipline in Asia. Excelerator is located in Maa, Davao City. The zipline is a kilometer long and 200 feet high. Cost is P300 per person, P150 if you decide to give it another go. Visit their website: OutlandAdventure.org for more details.

  1. How I wish I can visit Davao soon. I want to try that zipline thingy and of course, eats lotsa food! :D

    What a sweet proposal. I'm hoping you'd propose to someone too in a year or two lol :D

  2. I agree, ziplining was the highlight of DFAT. It was my first time at the Xcelerator, and boy was it uber fun!

    I wasn't able to witness the proposal because I was still on the other side, but I felt the "kilig" even if I was a kilometer away. ",)
