After more than 3 years, I was back in Davao. First time was in 2007, I was with my relatives there for the holy week. Now I went back for a work-related, official thingie... hehehe...
I found a major transformation since the last time I was there or maybe my comparison is irrelevant since I've only seen Matina, G-mall and SM the first time I was there. Now, I've seen most of Davao ( I'd like to think and convince myself this! ) since we did a tour around the city as we visited company's gas stations in the area.
I was able to go to Davao Crocodile Park and met the stars there: Carlo the Orangutan, Silver the White-breasted Eagle, Datu the Tiger and Rocky the Crocodile (which I dared to carry)... I chickened out when it came to carrying the pythons though (much to the extent that I even imagined it similar to carrying a snake skin bag. hahaha)
I also got to enjoy swimming in the pool of Chateu del Mar for one night as we had a simple get-together party with our counterparts there in the Area...
Things I love in Davao:
1) The taxi upgrade (as compared to my last visit)
2) The food: Durian coffeefroccino @ Bo's in Torres, Lachi's Cherry and Blueberry Cheesecake
Now, can't wait to be back in Davao. Next time. Eden and Samal... Humanda!!!
