da bow davao - saturday

waking up 30 minutes behind schedule, we had to haste things up in order to catch the boat to Pearl Farm. Returning to the main land port we had to wait for a while because there was only 1 'daungan' for us to go. We asked if the boat could just head straight to the port to Pearl farm,which was just some knots away, and the bankero (ano ba tawag sa driver ng bangka?) gladly obliged.

but lo and behold only 1 daungan was also available on that port so by the time we went back to the first port we now really had to rush things up. So after docking we ran to Cheche's car, which took a while because we carried a lot of stuffs and then after driving to the port to Pearl farm we had to stop to register and they took my pack of Cloud 9... huhuhuhuhuhu... because they don't allow people to bring food to Pearl farm.

Actually the first two paragraphs where there just so that I could rant about them taking my Cloud 9. Now on with the photos... bwehehehehe.... (which would yield 1000 words per photo from the formula of the band Bread with the song 'If')

yes we really did go to Pearl Farm...

and the girls were jumping with joy!

so with extreme fun under the sun...

even the shadows can't help smiling!

au was pretty much enjoying herself...

and me without a clue!

tulong tulong sa pagsulong

the end start...

da bow davao - friday

after some lite sleeping our destination was Chema's by the sea. The port to Chema's was way way better than what I was expecting.

Chema's at last

Chema's was very serene. Indeed if you were to stay in Davao for some decent R&R this would be the place to be.

after waiting...


and waiting...

our food finally came. They said that the delay was because they had to get the eggs from the main island. I would've complained more if the food wasn't great, good thing it was.

Halo halo Mais con Yelo (pala) ni Au na kuha ni Au.
Au has an eye for photography.
All she needs is her own SLRs. ^__^

after resting for a while... The beach at last!

I was really looking forward to a nice sunset but alas the clouds were not in my favor.

so after the whole afternoon dip we had some very tasty chicken, sisig and other non-diet helping dish.

then videoke till sleep finally caught us.

da bow davao - thursday

it was the 6th of july, thursday. Straight from the office, we went to a domestic airport, having purchased Cebu Pacific Promo tickets for only Php10.00 (+tax), all of us were giddy. Our destination, davao.

the plane came 1hr later than expected, Cebu Pacific you failed me! Way back I think they had an ad about their planes being earlier than usual diverting from the Filipino maƱana habit.. Boo!

well after the wait we were seated at last and a few minutes, Mushy and I were napping... I woke up shortly after some turbulence and maybe because subconciously I felt that the snacks was being served.

After distributing all the snacks, the stewardess started some q&a games in which I won a tout bag! Cebu Pacific you've redeemed yourself! (Question: What was the name of the stewardess on the back of the plane. Answer: Lovely [It was purely coincidental that I read her name plate earlier before boarding... promise... and no.. I'm not guilty.])

2:45hrs later... Davao airport.
at last after more than 3 months of waiting we were in Davao at last. Cheche, a very friendly and hospitable friend (salamat sa free lodging at masarap na pagkain Chechers. ^___^) of Mushy was nice enough to tour us around Davao and also Gen San. (more on that later)

From the airport, we went straight to Jack's ridge. I too don't know Jack, but the overlooking was great!

after some more photo-taking from the group, which from here on we will call the company (para favorite na rin ni kitie) we went to Checher's apartment.

flaunting some booty or the lack of it. =P

After eating some sisig with mayo and repacking some stuffs for the next day we went to sleep.
