Davao City Adventure...

The Unforgettable...



Before Valentine's Day, my phone rings...and it came from one of my favorite climbing buddies, Ivan Laurence, lead man of The Backpackers group, said.."Mommy Weng...do you want to go to Davao City?" and I promptly reply to him...and said "Yes!, yes!...I am very much willing to go to Davao City" ...Being a traveller...such a great offer is precious...Imagine, cheap airline ticket...at di ka na mag iintay ng sobrang tagal ng departure date...Di na dapat talaga pinakakawalan ang ganyan...Agree?

And so, our deal was settled and with the arrangement of I will just go around the city to have my Davao and General Santos City Tour...while the Backpackers Group will proceed to their plan of climbing Mt. Apo...But my phone ring again last Feb.10, I cannot forget it because I was roaming around Chinatown that time celebrating Chinese New Year with some co-blogger. It's Ivan again...he said..."Mommy Weng all things are settled...ayaw mo ba talagang sumama sa amin mag Apo?"...and I just laugh and keep on saying..."ayoko pa mag retire noh"...but saying those words are just an alibi because of the fear I had in mind...But Sir Ivan was over-eager in convincing me to join them in their climb....Guess what's next? Well, I will give you a separate story about what happen to me on sir Ivan's persistency...

At first let me start with our journey on Valentine's Day...what a very exciting day for me!!! This was the day we left Manila to Davao City. Arriving around 10:30 in Davao...we spent our first day at the Crocodile Farm and to its nearby parks...Wiiiiiiii....!

Riding in a Zorb Ball...












 This is the first time I will ride a Zorb...the experience was awesome...I felt like we're inside a big mixer rolling up and down, side by side, and I can't help but to scream on my highest voice...I keep on looking to my buddy, Ms. Clue....I was a little bit nervous about her because every time she's on top of me, I saw her facial expression, she looks like she's holding her breath, and by the time she's at the bottom, she will starts to shout....hahahaha...It was really fun and exciting....

Crocodile Farm and the Butterfly Garden




We had so much fun in these parks...We're like kids running, walking, taking pictures of those animals and doing our own photo opps...

Walking here and there just to see what animals was inside the cages and take each pictures... Pretending that we are a professional photographers and the animals are our models...

At muka namang alam ng mga hayop dun na kinukunan sila ng pictures...hahaha...What a silly imagination I've got...The birds are on their very handsome pose...The flowers looks like talking and saying ....
"give me a good shot, butterflies are on my petals"...

Iba talaga ang feeling pag nasa park ... Di mo maiwasang bumalik ang excitement mo tulad nung bata ka pa...

And our first day in Davao City leaves a very unforgettable memories and experiences...A true relaxation and mind setting for our next adventure ...

After a very exciting day...our hired service jeepney was already waiting for us in SM Davao City to bring us at our accommodation in Digos City to have our good rest for the next big event...
Climb the Majestic Mt. Apo...

Mt. Apo???? Excited...how does it can be...Me, climbing the Highest Mountain in the Phils.? Well....well...well...let's find out how....

Tara...Byaheng Jologs na!!!
