OPPO Selfie Expert Robi Domingo hosts ABS-CBN’s “Lakwatsero” web series

Selfie Expert Robi Domingo hosts ABS-CBN’s first online current affairs show, “Lakwatsero.” The travelogue web series documents Robi’s six-week adventure on what could be your next travel destination: Basey and Calbiga in Samar, Iloilo, Bacolod, Mt. Apo in Davao del Sur, Malapascua and Bantayan Islands in Cebu, Bukidnon, Cagayan de Oro, Iligan City. Each webisode lasts 5 to 7 minutes and features each destination’s sights and activities – as well as the OPPO F5 and A83 in action (you need a good phone to document your adventures). “Lakwatsero” starts on January 29.

Fast, Slim, and Fully-Featured – the OPPO F5

Go all out with the OPPO F5. Its fast facial unlock, a 20MP front camera, fluid performance, and its nearly-bezel-less design let you capture the best moments of your travel. For P15,990, it’s an all-in-package.
