There was a Bomb Explosion? Sep 30, 2016

There was a Bomb Explosion?

Location: Davao City, Mindanao, Philippines
GPS waypoint: 7°03'51.7"N 125°36'27.8"E

Shortly after Jin's arrival in Davao, she noticed the presence of heavily armed military personnel within the city.

Jin: "Why are there many soldiers with assault weapons in the city?"
TheLoneRider: "Oh...a bomb exploded 3 weeks ago killing 14 and injuring 70."
Jin: "I was in Portugal and you invited me here in Davao to join you for durian when a bomb exploded just 3 weeks ago? Killing 14? Injuring 70? (her jaw dropping)"
TheLoneRider: "I thought you read my blogs!"


Durian Death Sep 31, 2016

Durian Death

On her 2nd night in Davao, I took Jin to Bankerohan Market where we devoured 3 durian fruits totalling 3.5 kilos. She felt uncomfortable after the indulgence.

Jin: "Maybe I won't have durian for a while. I feel heavy and hot"
TheLoneRider: "Oh...yeah...people die here of durian. It's a statistical reality. Blood pressure shoots up and they die. Whenever durian is in season and sells for really cheap, more people are rushed to the hospital."
Jin: "People die from eating durian? And you fed me 3.5 kilos? (her jaw dropping...again)"
TheLoneRider: "You didn't know that?"

Not So Great Things Going Against Davao City

  • the weighing scale of fruit vendors specially the durian push cart vendors are a blatant cheat - showing almost twice the actual weight
