The Great Davao Experience

It’s been a week since our last trip to Davao and believe it or not…I still have not moved on. There’s so many things to do…kulang ang 3 days. It was sobrang fun. First, let me thank the very kind REYNA ELENA for this trip. Yes, I scammed REYNA once again! Hahaha. Truth is nahihiya na talaga ako but he was insisting that I join the Davao tour, lol, else…hinde magiging masaya ang amo ko dahil walang uutus-utusan yun at walang taga masahe and everything. Secondly, I wanna thank the ever gorgeous Manay Beng for the very warm welcome. Thank you manay sa pag-aaruga.

So in true Chuvaness fashion, let me reiterate to you all our 3-day trip to Durianland…this is gonna be a long entry so sit back, eat popcorn and enjoy!

FLY TO CEBU…LAND IN THE PACIFIC!!!

Nag-aalsabalutan palang ako when I got a call from Reynz, around 2AM….pinapupunta na ako sa erport. Pressure. I got there past 2AM, eh di naman kami pinapasok agad kase ang nilagay nun nag pa book sa tiket na name is Reyna J. Elena, Pinoy T. Ambisyoso and Chuvaness S. Miller…hinde match sa ID na dala namin. Anak ng tokwa e di naman nakasulat na real name noh nun pina book. So we had to go back to the ticketing office para ipapalit ang name and everything. Sino ba kase ang nag pa book. Hahaha

So after few hours, we’re finally settled. By 4:30, we boarded the plane already…at exactly 4:45…we were flying!!! I almost palpitated mga ka-bords, because to tell you the truth…that was my first airplane ride ever and there was a turbulence ahead. I thought I was gonna die! My gosh, nag i-spark yung right propeller nun airplane. Haha…yeah, I was overreacting. Sanay kaya ako sa ferry boat noh. LOL.

eto na naman tong pinagbiyak na ewan

It’s amazing how the world was created di ba. What a wonderful world talaga! Like during our flight, sa left side namin…the sun was rising already and then sa right side, makikita mo pa yung mga stars pa. Charing lang.

So after 1hour and 15 minutes, we arrived at Davao International Airport. Tell you, it’s beautiful. World class. It was so nice to see the very bubbly and beautiful ManayBeng again…really cute, she was jumping dun sa labas when she saw us

parang I don’t like that ‘thing’ in my background hahaha

Our first destination ever is bakery dahil sobrang gutom na gutom na talaga kami…shucks ang C2 small sa erplane is 100pesos! Skyflakes is 50pesos!!!

The first thing I did was to make my amo a cup of coffee

In less than 1 hour, manay Beng was able to cook a hearty breakfast for us. Sarrrap!

DAY ONE: THE PEARL FARM DAVAO

Around 8:00AM, we headed to Marina Wharf for a short boat ride going to the Pearl Farm.

If I’m not mistaken, 1500P per head ang day tour dito. It was all worth it, am telling you.


Fantastic view

 


Upon arrival, the staff will give you a pineapple drink tapos may orientation on the side

nag pa picture agad ang mga turista

nag pi-picture taking sila…

hahahahha

The Pearl Farm is really an ideal place for honeymooners like these 2…bwahaaha

Feel na feel!!

Manay Beng and Reynz drinking Weng Weng

The beach and biatch, lol

hmph, wag masyadong mainggit…hiniram ko lang yan kay manay

masarap ang buffet lunch nila

Ang totoo kaya kami nagpunta sa Pearl Farm eh para sa pictorial ni manay

anshorrrayy!!! magaling mag project!

haaay..this is life…sarap mag relax!

Around 4PM, we had to leave the place na

to get back to Marina Wharf

shucks! may annex ngapala ang opis namin dito…magpalipat kaya ako?

By 6:30PM nasa bahay na kami for the ultimate bonding moment.

anak ng tokwa! puro tisay ang masahista mo ha

dinner time!

DAY TWO PA LANG: NAUTICA TURNED NAUSEATICA

This was our breakfast on the 2nd day…with matching DILIS and of course sinangag.

Carabao Dive Center

parang sisters lang di ba

TEAM NAUTICA sponsored by Banco De Reyna

this is Carlo, our diving master…ka-gwapo jud, lol

attentive ang Reyna sa pakikinig, lol. Yah know what’s really funny was we were throwing up all over places. Nakakahilo kase naka float lang yung boat for like 30 mins. And it wasn’t that type of suka na konti lang…I tell you, sabi nga ni Manay, lahat ng dilis na kinain ko bumalik sa pinaggalingan. It was really yucky. And I was throwing up right there on the same spot kung saan nag ta-take off yung mga divers hahahhaha

meet ULTRAMAN!!!

O di ba???!!!!

Shucks ang macho mo reynz!!!

Manay’s turn

up close and personal with the corals

I swear, I saw a shark under the sea! LOL

Kathleen enjoying the scenes

Ang sarap ng feeling! It was scary. I was super scared…I even panicked kase nag karoon ng water yung mask ko and I couldn’t breathe. I forgot na sa mouth pala dapat nag b-breathe in and out. The key is concentrate lang sa breathing and relax. We didn’t take up crash course kase it will take days sometimes weeks pa…this is just a scuba diving experience…no need to worry if you don’t know how to swim..mababait ang trainors…basta tamang breathing lang tsaka don’t forget to equalize under water. sobrang affordable! 600 pesos per head lang!

later that night, we decided na mag bar hopping muna.

destination: JACK’S RIDGE! It’s super duper nice! Mas maganda pa sa Eastwood, the Fort etc. Overlooking Davao City! Ang ganda! A must see when you get to Davao…’til 2:30 AM sinaraduhan na kami ng lahat ng resto and bar sa Jack’s Ridge hinde pa din tapos ang kwentuhan and halakhakan namin. It was really a fun experience.

We slept at around 4:30 na yata. This was the master’s bedroom. Dito natutulog ang amo ko….

dito naman ako sa servant’s quarter, lol. Ang lupet ng amo ko….

DAY THREE: GURLS GONE WILD

kaya gusto kong ipalamon sa buwaya..

inferness ang buwaya dito hinde naka uniform…di gaya nun mga nasa maynila, lol

getting ready for our wild water adventure

 

 

This was the best part! Extreme to the maxx! Should you be in DAvao, do not ever miss this one heck of a lifetime experience. You’ll love every part of it. No, it wasn’t scary. The RAPIDS are actually exciting! Medyo pricey sya, around 2000 per head pero naman kahit magbayad ka ng 10,000…di ka makakahanap ng ganyan sa Maynila. With free tshirt, food and CD (pictures and videos).

The whole Davao trip was awesome. Maganda talaga sa Davao. Walang binatbat ang mga taxi drivers sa Manila sa mga drivers dun. Whoever is responsible sa pag di-disiplina sa mga taxi drivers dun, I salute you. Smiling face ang mga tao…great view, kitang kita ang Mt. Apo…and do you know na never sumesegway ang typhoon sa Davao? As in NEVER!

Di ba…you only live once..so you better make the most out of it! Cliche di ba pero trulala talaga. Sabi nga ni ryenz, yung pera pwedeng kitain yan sa PPP…but moments like these…lalo na if you share it with the people you adore….IT IS PRICELESS….you could even spend a lifetime and not find a single person who can make you smile genuinely so when you find one/two or three, make sure you treasure them. I’m definitely coming back to Davao.


Meron kaming nakitang sirena!!! Be sure you watch our live video HERE courtesy of Manay Beng para makita nyo din sya. Medyo matagal mag buffer kaya give it few mins ha…I tell you it’s worth the wait

And another video here by Ambo:

NEXT STOP: The Hundred Islands National Park in Alaminos City, Pangasinan

MOVIE REVIEW: IRON MAN

So darn cool!!!

Love you Tony Stark!!! Ang galing galing mo….with all that nuclear pacemaker and flying cyborg-transformer-robot you created…waaaaaaaah! It’s a fun movie though slightly predictable.

If you’re a fan of marvel comics and sci-fi movies, you shouldn’t miss this one. Aliw sya talaga. My kind of movie – one that allows you to watch it, really see it, feel it and meet it at least half-way. Na-nosebleed ako understanding the techie terms and all that. It’s worth your 200Pesos and 2 hours, I tell you.

Thank you Ruthie for the libre. Hehehe

Review-reviewhan lang to.

LUAU Party, Family Fun Day at 9 Waves

BIKINI OPEN 2008 Finalist (Faerie Edition)

That’s Gloria Macapal-ang-mukha, Sweet, Babe, Jen Rohsendahl, Rhoda (pronounced Rhow-Duh) and the winner (sori, I forgot yer name)!!

We had such a nice time with the annual Family Fun Day at 9 waves last last week…I don’t remember when pero basta this April lang sya. Aliw ever ang mga faeries. Ang kukulit…and infairness, they’re all smart!!! Type ko si Babe…originally from Davao, dating stand-up comedian and sobrang galing kumanta.

Pero walang tatalo sa Fun Day last year kahit na 2 lang ang finalist ng Faerie Edition. Very spontaneous yung Q&A part. There were 5 judges and both of them got 5 questions each. It was like watching Allan K. and Pooh together. Ang sakit ng lalamunan ko kakatawa at kakasigaw. Here are some famous lines I got from last year’s Bikini Open Q&A:

contestant #2 – “I do believe that black is beautiful but over black is CHARCOAL” — pointing to Contestant #1, being blacker than he/she is.

“Ang Dyosang nagmula sa langit, bumaba sa lupa, ang nagpatibok sa puso ni Martin Nievera, Pops Fernandez!”

Kung ikaw ay isang halaman, ano ka?“Kung ang kamatis nakakapagpalinaw ng mata, ang talong, nagpapatirik ng mata” …therefore, talong daw sya.

Who is your ideal person ?“my mother is my best ideal person”
