at the plane, wondering what's store for us in Davao, excited!
We really had a blast in Davao! The food were superb and surprisingly affordable. Can't get enough of their fresh fruits and Penong's Barbecue Seafood and grill,  a recommended restaurant for everybody. We munch mangosteen, rambutan and lanzones while waiting for the conference proper. Lola Abon's candy fruits are recommended "pasalubong" for those going back home. Did I mention that they have the best tasting pomelo's and smelly durian (super sweet smell it kinda stink)? Well kinda say durian has a personality of his own, once you've landed Davao airport, it will hunt you wherever you may go. lol. I'd like to go back to davao to check those things that I have'nt done there yet. So many to mention but my priority is to visit Pearl farm at Samal island... a'm a pearl lover.... Pearl of the Orient Sea, can't wait to conquer you.....now am dreaming, sigh.......

Hi there Luv. I'm from Davao and nice to hear you had a blast at my hometown. Yes you are right, don't believe in everything you hear about Mindanao.

For the benefit of everyone, coming from a Mindanao local like myself, believe me when I say Mindanao is fun and safe. For one, the entire Mindanao is predominantly Christian (90%) and only 10% Islam, especially in Davao provinces. Second, not all Islams, like what we presume about them, are war freaks, in fact, most of them are friendly and peace-loving people. I have a lot of Islam friends and they are all very good, compassionate people. So come ye all to Davao and Mindanao and have fun!!!
