The opening ceremony for the launch of the Filipino cuisine buffet was attended by members of Davao media, together with Marco Polo Davao General Manager Dottie Wurgler-Cronin. “Celebrating our country’s national day or Araw ng Kalayaan is very timely and important in our times today. Food is a representation of our freedom and culture as Filipino from where you can taste the influence of Spanish, American, Japanese and Southeast Asian countries,” Miss Dottie said.
