Thanks to Davao Rescue 911

My very industrious mom climb to our roof gutter to seal a hole there using a ladder made of wood.Yes, mom is a master of all...she can be a plumber, a carpenter, it, she can do it! It has been raining lately and there's a leak in there so she wants it sealed. But alas! She fell off from the ladder and she had a wound in the back in her head which is bleeding profusely. She also had many bruises in her arms. So she called up rescue 911 so that she'll be brought to the hospital. Few minutes after calling, rescuers from rescue 911 arrived and they right away had a first aid on her. And then they brought Mom to Davao Doctor's Hospital.

Thank you so much 911 rescuers. They had been serving to the people of Davao for several years now and they are very efficient. If you are in Davao and there are emergencies, you can rely rescue 911. If you need ambulance, police assistance, or fire track in cases of fire, just dial 911 and they will respond to your call. Even when your cellphone does not have load, you can contact them. Rescue 911 is a project of the City government of Davao in coordination with Davao Light and Power Company. Mabuhay 911 rescuers and Godspeed.

Pretty Christmas Decors

We went to Gaisano mall of Davao last time and I can really feel the Christmas atmosphere of the mall. There are lots of displays of Christmas decorations in the bazaar at the atrium. Most people are putting up already their trees and decors in their homes, offices and even in stores. Christmas time is fast approaching. Countdown this morning says it's 37 days more to go and it's already Christmas time.
I love Christmas. I don't know why but Christmas time gives me that special feeling of joy and happiness. I can already feel the gentle cold breeze of the weather outside. And what a delight to hear those beautiful Christmas songs and carols over the radio in the early morning dawn.

People are busy buying Christmas decorations at the bazaar

An array of beautiful Christmas decors ranging from the low- priced ones and the really pricey huge trees...

Me and my girl enjoying the bazaar, looking and posing through the many cutie displays...

Few lanzones fruit this year

I have been waiting for the lanzones fruit to drop down its price to around Php20-30.00/kilo this year but it never goes down. Maybe because of its few production this year. A Php40.00 - 60.00 per kilo of lanzones is just too pricey for me. Hopefully there will be more lanzones next year to satisfy my cravings.LOL

The lanzoness fruit is covered by yellowish, thick,leathery skin. Underneath the skin, the fruit isdivided into five or six slices of translucent, juicy flesh. The flesh is slightly acidic i ntaste, although ripe specimens are sweeter. Green seeds are present around half of the segments, usually taking up a small portion of the segment although some seeds take up the entire segment's volume. In contrast with the sweet - sour flavor of the fruit's flesh, the seeds are extremely bitter. The sweet juicy flesh contains sucrose, fructose, and glucose.

New Look, New feel

Hello friends! I have changed my template from that cutie pinky one into this new, simple and lightweight template. It's a 3-column minima. I just changed the colors of the fonts and border. I decided to have the color pink as a dominant color to retain the femininity of my old pink template:)

My new template

My old template...I can't anymore get a big pic of it ...

Why I changed?

  • For a whole new look.hehe. I want something new...something that I have a personal touch on it.
  • I noticed that my old template loads slower. So, I decided to have a template that has a lighter weight.
I hope you guys will like it! Have a great weekend everyone!

Harana Restaurant

We celebrated Keona's first birthday at Harana Restaurant along F. Torres St., Davao City. There are lots of reasons why we love Harana restaurant. Aside from the delicious food they serve, the waiters and waitresses are very courteous and attentive to the needs of their customers. And the ambiance is really cozy. If you have kids, it's the right place for you because it has a playground with swings and slides.

We locally call this grilled bagaybay

Sinuglaw - short for sinugba and kinilaw - raw tuna fish mixed with grilled pork mixed with vinegar, cucumber and radish


This restaurant are owned by the Lizada's. Here is the Harana history...

The Harana Story (I got this in their menu book)

Harana started in the little garden at the back of Atty. and Mrs. Fermin Abella's residence at Juna Subdivision, Matina Davo City in 1966. A small affair made up of few open nipa huts sheltering bamboo tables and rattan chairs. And under the branch of a young mango tree stood the small barbecue pit. In the evenings, the place was lit with little gas lamps. It's specialty then, and now were fried rice and spare ribs, the original recipe of Mrs. Rosario Abella Lizada. It's original staff consisted of six (6) personnel, most of whom are still with Harana today.
In 1970, the Abella's need a little garden and Harana had to move out. Its new home was thew site of Harana 1 along McArthur Highway, Matina, Davao City. The place was spacious and the owners thought of a new approach in the restaurant business, thus, the playground concept - complete with swings, slides, bars- was implemented.
on June 29, 1970, feast day of St. Peter, patron Saint of Davao, the new Harana opened with the colorful playground equipment and flowers in the garden. On its opening night, the restaurant was filled to capacity with the children's laughter ringing as they played. From then on, the Harana was loved by the families and the community as a whole.
On June 29, 2009, a second Harana was opened along Florentino Torres Street to serve the growing demand of the fast developing city. At that time, F. Torres was dark and avoided by motorists at night. There was not a single bulding alongside Harana. There was only "kangkong" fields, wild reeds and clusters of unkept banana shrubs. When harana at Torres opened, F. Torres was no longer the same. Instead of darkness, the place was festooned with bright lights and the sound of music and the children's laughter echoed. Now, F. Torres has become the number one food street in Davao City.
