THERE is a property boom in the city. More villages are cropping up and condominiums are sprouting like mushrooms. The idea would be unheard of years back but the metropolis is growing, thus the need for more living spaces on the ground and up in the sky.

DAVAO is really growing and people no longer all converge downtown to have their special treats. This row of restaurants in Lanang beside the Subaru showroom is but a proof of that.

FOR the third time, Pacquiao will be throwing punches at Marquez in the ring and try to beat him to the ground so he can keep his belt. The set of waist huggers will never be the same minus one. But we all know there’s so much more involved than claiming rights to the big-buckled-clinchers —a title, pride, world notoriety and of course, the moolah. Win or lose, both parties the earnings will be enormous—for both boxers.
Boxing has become a (huge) money making venture for the pugilists. The sport has never been this popular in history with one boxer owning seven titles to his name. Manny Pacquiao has etched his name in history.

I WILL forever love 3-in-1. Not so much the coffee prep, though it is handy and a lifesaver when I need a caffeine fix—stat, but that of hotels.

THERE was Sandy, then the snow. It was cold, vey cold, and dark. In the East Coast, it was a chance to get a glimpse of life in the past, void of new world conveniences— candle lit nights when great conversation ruled and smart phones set aside (it’s not as smart minus the power it needed to run), warmth came from not only from throws and blankets but from the company of good friends as well, and “hiking” to the tenth floor (several times a day) was good for the heart, thighs and butt, I said to myself between gasps for air.

TAWI-TAWI was a dream destination for a long time. Cloaked by many intriguing and fearful stories of armed abduction and sea pirates, its elusive beauty has remained inaccessible to tourists due to its proximity to peace-conflicted provinces and stories that the unforgiving media conveys to the world. After a long wait, I finally had the opportunity to reach the southernmost tip of my country. Braver bloggers have journeyed to these distant specks before. I merely affirm their statements of wonder and dispel the myth that surrounds this destination.
