Magnaga Waters Beach Resort, Compostela Valley
(Sep 30 - Oct. 2, 2013) With my Camiguin option not materializing, it was timely that Ciara (my Tagum benefactor), offered 2 nights in their beach resort in Pantukan, Compostela Valley. Magnaga Waters Beach Resort is a vast 14-hectare beach front that spans a 2km walk on the beach...more »»

Goodbye Davao...Again! traveling
Goodbye Davao...Again!
(Sep 28, 2013) When I left Davao January this year, I felt defeated. I had no intention of coming back. But life, as always, threw a curve ball that got me aborting my scheduled stint in Siargao to be back in Davao. But it's a different Davao this time. That's something I like about a place - it's never the same way twice....more »»

Wine and Cheese at Malagos Farm House food
Wine and Cheese at Malagos Farm House
(Sep 27, 2013) I thought European-style cheese would have to be imported - not until I came upon Malagos Farm House here in Davao where cheese artisan Olive Puentespina makes cheese magic with the likes of European monastery cheeses from soft pungent to hard types with crusty rinds. With a bottle of wine to wash it down, it was a gourmet party that tittilated the epicurean taste buds....more »»

Yoga in Davao
(Sep 26, 2013) The one good thing about Davao is having a healthy yoga community. If and when I drift into Davao, there is Holiday Gym that can squeeze me in to teach my Karma Yoga, or there's People's Park where I can teach free yoga in an outdoor setting. Sometimes, free yoga is offered at Abreeza Mall, back to back with a Zumba class. It's all good.....more »»

Pending US Invasion of Syria lucid
Pending US Invasion of Syria
(Sep 7, 2013) Rhetorics are now high in selling the US invasion of Syria to the American public for Syria's alleged use of chemical weapons against its own people. Haven't we heard that same saber-rattling before? About the WMD that never was? About the incident at Gulf of Tonkin that did not happen? Is the US trying to dupe its people and the world again in order to go into a war economy and for its military industrial complex to sell more weapons? Isn't this another commercial war to fuel money lending by the global financial cartels?....more »»

Back Into the Black
(Sep 1, 2013) Since I stopped dying my hair black and now sporting my natural salt 'n pepper look, a strange thing started happening. The women I meet, specifically the minimum wage earners I casually get into conversations with as I eat in restos and do my errands, they tell me things with the same recurring theme....more »»
