Massage, Sauna and Ear Candling at Holiday Spa and Gym
(Sep 17-19, 2016) With very limited resources, I travel as a nomadic guerilla - prepared both physically and mentally to hurdle the hard-knocks life throws at me. Eat live worms, sleep on a sidewalk, ride on a bus bumper in the driving rain, marooned on an island - done it. I default to a lifestyle of endurance, concentration and intensity. But every once in a while, my benevolent universe throws me a bone - pampered luxury in an upscale spa. Hey, you only live once. I won't say no to that....more »»

Downpour in Davao
(Sep 18, 2016) It was a freakish torrential downpour in Davao. Lightning strikes were just nearby with a deafening crack. It didn't take long until the streets were flooded. The open excavations could no longer be seen as the flood waters were black from the overflowing sewer. Then people crossing the street just fell through the big hole in the ground.....more »»

Celebrating Davao's King of Fruits - Durian!
(Sep 11, 2016) If durian were a car, it would be no other than a Lamborghini - the most exotic car that ever was! It's not for the faint of heart. Because of its pungent smell, it is banned in hotels, restaurants and flight hand-carrys. But for the durian lovers, it's an aromatic fragrance you may actually use as body spray if there ever was one. Yes, you can't stay in the middle with durian - love it or hate it.....more »»

The Blast that Rocked Davao politics
The Blast that Rocked Davao
(Sep 2, 2016) After ascending to the presidency, Davao's former mayor Rodrigo Duterte, loomed big as the tough guy uniquely qualified to unite the country with rebel groups willing to sit down for peace talks - CPP, NPA and NDF. Steps were underway for unification. Then on Sept. 2, at 10:17pm, a bomb exploded in a crowded night market in Davao killing more than a dozen and injuring 70. The renegade Islamic Abu Sayyaf group claimed responsibility. Outraged, Duterte unleased his fury - all hell broke lose in the rebel camps and hide-outs. Objective: complete, absolute and total annihilation of the Abu Sayyaf....more »»

Good Eats with Mel Pangan's Davao Food Tour
(Aug 26, 2016) Anyone can do a food tour...just read up on food on a destination, connect the dots and do the leg work. As a DIY budget backpacker, that's how I do it. I could get lost, maybe get scammed, maybe the place closed down, or just couldn't find the place. There are no guarantees. However, I got the chance to actually participate in an organized food tour of Davao by Mel Pangan. Big difference!....more »»

A Gifted Dell Laptop from the Usual Suspect
(Aug. 24, 2016) When my laptop broke down, I was a soldier in the warzone with no gun. How do I survive on the open road? My travels, the roof over my head, food in my belly were all because of my laptop. But there simply was no budget for a big ticket item like that. Almost from thin air, I got my much needed laptop as a gift. From the telltale sign, I knew it was from the usual suspect.....more »»
