DAVAOENO bowlers seem to have enjoyed a hometown advantage over visiting players. Davao City's very own bowlers are in abundance in the list of top players in the games played in Dover Lanes last April 29, the opening day of the 36th FEDBOP Annual National Duckpin Bowling Championship.
For the youth categories, Edmark Ventic of Tagum's Daproba topped the 7-9 male age group, racking up 179 points. Two Davaoeño bowlers secured the two following spots, however, with Roy Cabael and Homer Amsirabi both of Davao's Daciba scoring 155 and 148 respectively.

IT'S the unknown that lures everyone in, repeatedly. Who drives for an hour across barren land to have a taste of some dish that made it to the most popular list? Perhaps those who wish to uncover a secret, or those who have become devotees that whatever it is that got them addicted doesn’t really matter. Let the secret remain a secret.

ONE is incumbent, the other is fully supported by the man whom Dabawenyos have constantly given their full support. That’s how it is in the city’s first district. While a different fight is going on with two women candidates in the second district, although again, one contender has the constant support of Acting Vice Mayor Rodrigo R. Duterte.
How will the Dabawenyos vote for the first district congressional race in Davao City? We can only wonder.

ORLANDO, Florida — Google Now is often compared with the Siri voice assistant on Apple’s mobile devices, but its power lies in giving you information you need to know before you have to ask. It works best as a supplement to Siri, rather than a replacement, now that it has expanded from Android devices to iPhones and iPads.

IT’S all about personal taste—some like their desserts packed with sweetness while others don’t, some find beauty where others cannot, and what is seen as fashionable may not necessarily be viewed as stylish.

NOPE that is not my age. If you want to know I am by God’s grace, fifty-four. Fifty-five is actually the level I am currently right now in Candy Crush.
A few months back, I promised myself that I would never play Candy Crush but promises are meant to be broken, so here I am. Struggling and occasionally cursing through the various stages of Candy Crush.

THE Abiera Museum of Arts in Barangay Tunga-Tunga in Maasin City is every Maasinhon’s pride, something that the locals would willingly “brag” or share to any history buff, visitor, or acquaintance.
In the fast-paced Maasin City life, the museum not only stands as a premier place for people who may have lost grip of their sense of history but also serves as a solid reminder of the dedication, diligence and desire of one Maasinhon luminary: Salvador “Boy” Abiera.

THE Cordilleras are known for their rich culture and ethnicity. Urbanization and industrialization may be a few of those factors that quite changed its core and façade but the customs, traditions and the way of life it celebrates even before the advent of foreign oppressors have never changed. The Cordilleran culture continuously transcends time after time.
Many philosophers in beauty and aesthetics wrote during the early times that the cultural implications of beauty are prominent in every society and have a strong influence on how it is perceived.

IT’S a small restaurant on the side of the road I pass so often but never got the chance to stop and try the offerings that’s has been receiving good reviews. When this joint went on a trial run, it was only open at suppertime and I dared not enter knowing that I would be in for a very hefty meal. And then it opened for lunch….
I met Camille Porras in Boracay but didn’t know she had ties in this city until she set foot in Davao. I didn’t know she was into cooking either, and that came as a wonderful surprise most especially when she, along with two other partners- Carlos Veloso and Bob Lacaya, opened Sea Green, a cafe and lifestyle shop.

A NEW taste for coffee lovers, but this one is healthier than coffee. Why? Because it is made with herbs and not coffee beans; no caffeine added too.
Tazza De Le’ Brew offers you something you had never tasted before. The special herb that they use is Ganoderma Lucidum, a medicine that they used in China 5,000 years ago. It is known as the “magic herb,” “mabuting gamot” and “gamot ng buhay.” Ganoderma Lucidum is also called “panacea,” and it is now called the “supernatural eastern mushroom” from the east.

I WILL never forget my first ever overseas trip with the family. We went to Japan and I was eleven then. Tokyo Disneyland just opened the year before, and to be able to visit a Disney theme park was an absolute childhood wish that came true. It was such a magical time!
In 1999, I went back to Japan again as a delegate of the Filipino Youth Invitational Program sponsored by Japan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

SUMMER is the season when people spend their time going out for relaxation and recreation. It is when people go swimming, picnic, hiking, and do their preferred adventures despite the heat of the sun.
Aside from trips and adventures, diseases are also in during summer.
Mainstream not in the sense that we like them but for the reason they are inevitable. Going out during summer has now become a risk because of the extreme heat.

WHEN someone wounds you, two things happen. In the book by Lewis Smedes he said something like two obstacles are placed on the road to reconciliation. The first obstacle is the one that you put, the pain obstacle, The hurt wall. That is placed by the aggrieved person. If you were the person hurt you put up this wall. In our experiences when we are hurt we throw this obstacle in front of us and the person who wounded us.

EACH footstep has a story. On each turn there is history.
As somebody who has yet to fulfill her dream of travelling, it feels as if I cannot only conquer the world but time as well. Walking along the narrow alley of one of the oldest infrastructures in Baguio built during the Japanese regime brought a zenith of realizations. And I never thought my simple encounter with Mike Zarate will result in a change of perspective.
