Congratulations to  four of our local tourism oriented establishments in the city namely; Bay Tal Mal Restaurant,  Dennis Coffee Garden, Azenith Royale Hotel,  Marcian Garden Hotel and Palacio del Sur  for having been  declared as HALAL accredited. They will be honored on September 6, 2016 by the Regional Office of the Dept of Tourism under the helm of Regional Director Mary June Bugante.

The above mentioned TOEs are recipients of the Philippine HALAL Tourism Project of the Dept of Tourism. Such project is one among the programs pushed by a good friend former DOT Asec  Art Boncato,  who hails from Davao City. He has been the prime mover of the said DOT program. Surely, Mr. Boncato and Former DOT Sec Ramon Jimenez  will be happy to note of the development in Mi Ciudad de Zamboanga.

I want to experience the first ever walk tour in the city. Good luck guys. Surely it’s gonna be fun! Lleba agua y toma el maga maintenance antes de caminar  Hihihi ! — Email this writer at
