Tampisaw sa Davao

When we speak of Davao, we can always think of Durians. But of course, there’s more than that!

Tampisaw sa Davao was like the fire starter of my travelling adventure. And Davao is one of the places that I want to go back  from time to time. Parang simple lang kasi ang buhay dun at hinde ganu naghahabol ng oras di gaya sa Manila.

I’ve had my vacation there last September 19 until 28. So it was like 10 days of being a total bum…an sarap lang (hehe)!

Now if you’re gonna ask what Davao has to offer you in terms of food, better try these:

Durian Shake

I think this is available to almost all restos and carinderias there.

Masarap promise! Painumin niyo na lang ako nito kesa kumain nung prutas.

Tuna Kilawin

I got to taste this when we stayed at Costa Marina in Samal Island.

You may also try Pork Kilawin ‘coz both tasted really good and you won’t smell the rawness of its meat.

At yung ibang pagkain eh wala ako picture, like their chicken inasal, barbecues, durian made candies and pastillas. By the way, don’t also forget to bring home their Suhas or Pomelos. Da best din ‘to kase tamang halo ng tamis at asim ang matitikman mo.

Ngayon, kung ikaw ay tipid mode naman but still want to have at least good dining experience, explore “eat-all-you-can” chains. I’ve tried Kuya Ed Restaurant for Php99 only. Siyempre marami pang iba na nakakalat sa tabi-tabi, so lakad lang at tingin-tingin din lang.

Not to mention, Sarah Geronimo also dine here during her Next One – Philippine Tour on 2009.

In terms of place, I know there would be a lot of hotspot that you can go to. Kaso dahil wala pa ako gaano alam nun at medyo tipid mode rin, ilan lang ang napuntahan ko.

Crocodile Park

…and their zoo.

Plus, the Parkridge, na overlooking and may kainan. Meron din silang Baywalk kung saan itinayo ang malaking statue ni King David. And at the same place, you’ll also find a bid pond housing a large number of small sharks.

Last but simply the best of all is the Samal Island.

Got a chance to stay overnight at Costa Marina Resort where you’ll find the sands are very fine too – parang pulburon. Taking dip into the water of Samal shore is indeed cool, refreshing and very relaxing – parang pwede rin for soul-searching moments.

I think I should have a lot thing to share, kaso since last year pa yung experience, eh medyo nawala yung momentum at excitement sa pagkukuwento. But for sure, I’ll take time to visit Davao again ‘coz I know I’m still also missing a lot.

Babalik ako Davao and wait until we meet again (big smile)…
