RAIN, RAIN ....

After the El Nino here comes La Nina, if you can remember I was posting here several photos of me wishing for the rain to come. And now here it comes. Taken near Agdao Flyover.


MUSEO DABAWENYO

This is our charming little museum here in Davao City, it houses few relics of Davao's past. The city government and some other private entities here are still working to better this museum so that when you come around, we can offer you some place worth visiting.

Museo Dabawenyo is located along Magallanes St., right at the the back of the Sangguniang Panglungsod Building.


INTRICATELY DONE

Just few of the stunning decors inside Krua Thai, it’s a Thai restaurant along Torres St. of this city and their food is great. When in Davao and want to experience authentic Thai cuisine, Krua Thai is a perfect stop.


PEACEFUL AND QUITE

.... Sunday morning along Roxas Avenue of this city.


DAVAO’S BIG BEN, FORGOTTEN

Yeah, this is Davao’s Big Ben, this clock tower is planted right at the front of San Pedro Cathedral of this city but seems like this has already been forgotten. This is a project of the Lions Club as the logo indicates. But when you get to see the clock don’t ever dare to use it as your time reference, but if you wish to let your time stand still, this is your perfect clock.


TOWARDS THE SEA

You are seeing a long stretch of footbridge towards the jetty of pumpboats going to the Island Garden City of Samal. This island is home to various resorts and spas one can truly enjoy when visiting this island.




See more pretty skies HERE.

LURKING

Sen Ton Whan is one of my favorite Chinese Restaurants here in the city; their parking is so spacious fit for a highway driver like me, LOL! It’s about two months already that I had not dined in here. On the night I took this photo I just waited for someone to come out from that resto door.

When in the city and looking for a sumptuous authentic Chinese cuisine? Sen Ton Whan is a must visit, they are conveniently located at Victoria Plaza Parking grounds along JP Laurel Ave.


CHIC DROPLETS

I attended a birthday party the other night held at one of the halls of Davao Convention and Trade Center. While loitering along the hall I spotted a friend who also had feasted on a wedding reception of her cousin’s wedding at the other hall, she had invited me to get inside, well, that’s how it is in the Philippines, I was invited by the invited. I actually did not took part of the eating I just congratulated the newly weds whom I knew some years back. But before I slipped out of the hall I took a souvenir shot of their wedding decoration.

Davao Convention and Trade Center is along Torres St. of this city.

YELLOW TO MONO

This giant umbrella was originally yellow in color, but I manipulated it to turn mono, and love how it turned out. I took this at Yellow Cab, Inc.

AT DAVAO’S RESTO STRIP

I’m back from a 4-day respite due to some technical problems my internet connection had encountered. Out of sadness that I cannot update my blog, we went out for some comfort food at one of Davao’s resto strips at Damosa Complex along Mamay Road here in Davao City. Here you can have choices from Vietnamese, Authentic Filipino, Spanish, Japanese Restos all in one strip, but we opted to have some New York pizza at the Yellow Cab, I will be posting some of the photos I have later, but meantime sharing some of my son’s wacky moments at the strip.



BUSY HOLIDAY

I went out last Saturday to buy something around this area, this is the DCLA complex along Oyanguren St. It was Philippine Independence day, but who cares about independence when people are busy making ends meet.

LONG LIVE, THE PHILIPPINES!

Tomorrow, June 12, 2010 marks the 112th year of Philippine Independence from her colonizers. This country has gone through a lot, although I have lived some 38 years in those 112 years stated in our history books, people of this country has a lot to tell how they fought and struggled to champion democracy.

I hope the Divine will still grant me more years so I can witness history unfolding, more stories to tell about this country. Long Live! My beloved country, The Philippines.

Thank you for supporting this blog.




STA. ANA CHURCH

You are seeing Sta. Ana Parish Church along Monterverde St., here in Davao City. I don't regularly attend mass here since my family don't live around this zone, but last Sunday we went to see a friend near here so we attended the 12nn mass.


IN THE GARDEN

It's only when we truly know and understand that we have a limited time on earth -- and that we have no way of knowing when our time is up -- that we will begin to live each day to the fullest, as if it was the only one we had. - Elisabeth Kubler-Ross

WAITING ...
