New Discovery: geePods Buda

geePods semi-outdoor area and stairs leading up to the rooms.

We were on our way back to Davao from Reel Place (see previous post) when we felt the need for another cup of coffee. I initially wanted to check out Tree House Coffee + Rooms but I was intrigued by another cafe by the roadside. And boy was I glad I made Jun pull over […]

Revisiting Reel Place in Bukidnon

Reel Place Bukidnon's park entrance with rainbow letters and a decorative bicycle.

Habagat season has officially commenced in the Philippines. This means excruciating heat in the daytime and torrential rains at night. So here we are dreaming of going out but can only revisit photos of our last road trip. Our farthest stop was at Reel Place in Lorega, Bukidnon before we turned back to Davao City. […]

Passing Through Jack’s In the Sky

Jacks in the Sky view of the playground and surrounding scenery.

Buda has come a long way in 10 years. This area between Davao City and Bukidnon used to be short of places to stop over and have a nice meal with kids. When we first visited this area of Davao City little Adie, the only thing she enjoyed was the strawberries. Now with Little B, […]

Kidbu Cafe

KIdbu Cafe Dining Area

It’s been a while! With the start of classes and just life happening, our days have been occupied with work, shuttling kids to and from school, preparing lunches and catching up on sleep during the weekends. So when Adie asked for some reprieve from our routine before her first periodical exams, we got in our […]

Bukid Feels in the City at Arbor Farms

Arbor Farms Restaurant and Grape Farm

Davao City is a huge city with parts that can be considered rural. The southern parts of Davao are more residential than commercial but the area is dotted with agribusinesses that have dipped their toes into the restaurant industry. We enjoyed the food offerings of Pasol Mo Luto Ko at Lindo’s Farm on Valentine’s Day […]

Unique Dining at Payag ni Enards

Most of us have had meals by the beach, in the mountains, and even among trees. But I must say that dining in the middle of a rice field is a unique experience that I would want to repeat, soon if possible.

Davao City 7-Day Tour Itinerary

Planning on visiting the Land of Promise? Davao City is your gateway to Mindanao and a visit to Duterte’s city is something you should not miss. But being the largest city in the world in terms of land area, you can’t see Davao in just a couple of days. So here’s a Davao City 7-day […]

Avenue Cafe Davao Review

Avenue Cafe Davao

My sister and I have always loved coffee. When we were little, we would scour the house for coins so we could buy a sachet of Nescafe from the neighborhood store. We’d make the coffee in the morning, put it in the freezer, and enjoy it as a cold treat during hot summer afternoons. So […]

Pasol Mo Luto Ko at Lindo’s Farm

Lindos Farm food

I think most would agree that fishing is a relaxing hobby year-round. Personally, I find it boring but my children take pleasure in catching fish so we do it whenever we find the chance. Fishing in the Philippines can be dangerous if done in open water and with a lack of experience. So for us […]

Casa Julieta Davao’s Charm

When we moved uptown, I started looking for a place we could stay downtown when we need to. I do not want the kids to stay in motels but I also do not want to spend a lot of money on a hotel room. In my search, I found Casa Julieta Davao and immediately became […]
