Maya on the Block: Lighting up brightly a busy crossroad for Christmas

Christmas is the best season to enjoy the beautiful illuminations that light up the cities’ streets. Colorful lights create a magical feeling that bring happiness to all.

In Davao City, the junction of Mt. Apo and Lopez Jaena Streets has become among the city’s busiest sections teeming with crowds, and vehicles hooting and passing by causing ennui to passengers and bystanders.

But this Christmas season Dabawenyos will no longer be annoyed traversing and passing through this crossroad as the Rogen Inn compound is all lit up for the holidays following the lighting up of its 22-foot Christmas tree.

The giant tree, decked with dazzling lights, multicolored gifts as ornaments, and glittering tinsels, is the focal point of the compound.

“We wanted to share the joy we feel celebrating the first Christmas with our guests and everyone who passes by our address at the corner of Mt. Apo and Lopez Jaena Streets. This is why we put up our holiday tree in traditional Christmas colors in front of the compound for all to see,” said Gene Bangayan, general manager.

Rogen Inn, located along the junction of Mt. Apo and Lopez Jaena Streets, opened in the second quarter of this year. It’s a three-building accommodation that houses 328 de luxe rooms in uniform sizes with each room equipped with tap card access and other necessities for business and leisure travelers.

It is also Davao City’s newest destination for a wide selection of restaurants namely Rogen Lounge, Marinatuna, Habi at Kape, Boiling Crab and Vines, Samgyupsalamat, and Yo Froz, which are decorated for the holidays as well.

“The options are diverse-Filipino, Thai, Korean, seafood to meat, savory to desserts and dining service starts as early as 6 a.m. until nighttime. The food scene at the Rogen Inn compound is very exciting,” Bangayan said.

Along with the lighting of the tree was the launching Elements, a salon and a day spa.
