Davao’s Best for the Insane

Our five-day stay in  Davao was meaningfully foodgasmic. Meeting a friend unexpectedly in durianparadise made explorations easy as pie. That’s one character of a place: it makes one remember friends, names, other places.

After getting the camera, Virhenia and I had to go back to the office to get it.

Address: G/F South Arcade, Banilad Town Center, Banilad, Cebu City Telephone Number: (+63 32) 239 0800 / (+63 32) 239 0999 Camera: Pawlito, a Nikon 3100 with 18-55 mm lens  Roast Layered Pork  Thankful. My college years would not have been easy without my crazy Titing, my paternal uncle.  I did not have any curfew, so I often went home  past midnight. Although I often made his wife, Ate Flor, worried, but I just shrugged it off. I spent the evenings browsing the Net at Ang Suga office and walked the eerily silent and loud streets to Sto. Niño. I sometimes […]
