Isla Jardin del Mar: A Gem in Pacmanland

Gumasa Beach has been dubbed "Boracay of Mindanao". I beg to disagree. It has its own charm, its own beauty, its own identity. Let's say, those who have been to El Nido or Amanpulo would probably say this place will pale in comparison to those world-class resorts. Nevertheless, Gumasa is still the pride of Glan, of Sarangani and of Mindanao. Come visit this place one day and experience a soothing and relaxing ambiance away from the rustle and bustle of daily life.

Davao Gastronomic Delights

There are a couple of restaurants in Davao we visited recently which gave us a satisfactory dining experience. They are Gerry’s Grill at Gaisano Mall, JP Laurel Avenue and Yahong Restaurant near Davao Convention Center along F. Torres Street. There may serve similar dishes but one thing was common about them. The ones we’ve tasted were good and reasonably priced and would let customers keep going back for more. Let’s see if you will not love these pictures below

Beating the Davao Heat with Ice Giants

There’s nothing like a thirst-quenching gastronomic celebration to cap my 47th birthday than a trip to Ice Giants Desserts and Snacks at the Damosa Gateway Complex in Davao City. They offer a variety of mouth-watering and reasonably-priced ice-based treats from parfaits to halo-halo. They also serve sandwiches, nachos and other short order snacks. The friendly staff matches the gay and warm ambiance of the place, thus making those sweets-loving folks come back for more of their good stuff.

Happily Stranded

It was one of those flights one can only be grateful for not taking. It was PAL Flight PR 813 I was supposed to be on last October 26. The airline people said the plane that was to take us from Manila to Davao at 3 o’clock in the afternoon was hit by lightning. Don’t ask me how that happened but I was simply grateful the flight did not push through or else we would’ve been blown to kingdom come and I won’t be writing this now.

In as much as most of the passengers wanted to go home or take their vacation or business meeting, no one had a choice but to remain in Manila. Since it was the airline’s “fault”, the passengers were either given an allowance for transportation to go home for the night or to billet them at the ritzy Diamond Hotel along Roxas Blvd. (For more information, please visit their website at
