You could say that Macky Calo's life revolves around food. This Butuan resident is a serial restaurateur, owning a coffee shop, a restaurant, and a beer and wine lounge bar. When not spending time with his family, Macky travels around the CARAGA region in search of secret surfing spots and, true to his love for cuisine, secret sources of local delicacies as well.

Butuan City is located in the northeastern part of the Agusan Valley Mindanao. some folks believe that it takes its name from "Batuan," a local sour fruit, while others say that the City was named after Datu Buntuan, a chieftain who once ruled over the area. Butuan, which used to be the capital of Agusan del Norte, is considered a major city in the CARAGA region.

Other provinces in the CARAGA region are Agusan del Sur, Surigao del Norte, Surigao del Sur and the Dinagat Islands.

 For a surfer like Macky, life is just a series of waves that you have to ride. And just like any surfer, the best way to to do this is to work hard, take it easy, and most of all, have fun.

That's why for Macky, Basta Pilipinas, Rock and Roll!
