Weekend Trip at Davao

by Tanchi | 11:16 PM in |

It was already 6 am when I felt that someone is waking me up, finally I realize that it was my mom ditching again my sleepyhead. Waking up from a frequent moodswing the other night was hard, and I was not in the mood again to stand up and fix my things.

My dad had just arrived from Cagayan de Oro, he's always travelling to the other part of the country. I really don't know whats the point of strolling and visiting Davao, I just agreed to go with them, what else could I do, if I know that the best part of it is, another allowance?

8 am when we started packing our things for a one-day visit in Davao. My dad was working in a Coca-Cola Company, giving the us the reason to be in the largest city many times, and the fact that we would just visit their and stroll around their large and cozy places. One thing I never forgot in visiting Davao when I was a kid was the Mcdo Chicken, the first time I've tasted it.

Later on we realized that we haven't took our breakfast, so the best thing to do while travelling was to order foods through the Jollibee's "drive-thru", t'was never been hard.

After a 2-hour travel we finally arrived, and I was pissed off by the behavior of my digicam, on and off habit while having empty and grounded batteries, the reason why I haven't documented things most of the time. Fortunately, I captured some. Then, the mall-strolling started.

The photos I captured in VGA can explain our experiences in Davao. Sorry for the low resolution though:
My excited sister (sorry no shot for my bro and my mom)

My dad busy concentrating on the road

another branch of Gaisano Mall aside from Gensan (sorry for the bad shot, the car is moving)

Rosary at the car

Davao Central High School (correct me if this is a Chinese school?)

One thing I'll never forget (bottomless Iced tea)

I've got a shirt from Mr. Bean and a black skinny jeans

...and a "Sperm Monkeys" shirt by Flush Art

The last day:

starting the day with tocino, fried egg, and a java rice at Dimsum Diners.

See, it makes me smile after the meal.

On the way home, getting a peek at the "Pomelos" (too bad I forgot the durian)

A stall with varieties of fruit along the highway

The monochrome odd shots:

"Window-knockers" as they call them, on a burger stand.

    Just started reading your blog and will be clicking more of the archives.

    Question, where did you buy the Mr. Beans shirt here in Davao? I'm always on the lookout for cute and funny shirts for my 2 brothers and the shirts you got are perfect for them. Thanks!

    Keep on blogging!
