A Glimpse of the Past: High School Friends Reunited

Fifteen years ago before we meet again. Looking back during in the past, when I was in my fourth year in high school and met this group of wonderful people and eventually become my friends for life. A simple get together were planned ahead and somehow a series of met ups were taken but some of it weren’t realized, thanks to a social networking sites which become our main source of communication.

The day came finally and it was scheduled on a Saturday afternoon in a private inland resort in Davao City. The place is somewhat far from where my house is and I was ultimately force to travel together with a friend in high school. After I gathered the thing to bring in, I was tasked to bring rice. When my friend came, she hired a taxi to fetch us to the resort.  Suddenly I felt dizzy, good thing I brought my white flower balm a long to calm my senses. I felt relieve after I inhaled the cooling scent. I remember my mother bought this at SolsticeMed.com

At the resort, we waited for a while for the rest of the gang to come. Meanwhile, my friend’s son suddenly swam unto the pool to his excitement.  When all my classmates in high school came, we talked about the things we did during our time in high school. What we went through, some questions where still unanswerable but still happy to see everyone.

There are those who promised to come but haven’t showed up due to some more important thing to do. But we understand them as long as we are all happy and excited to see those who came. We stayed at the resort until the guard called our attention. They said its closing time and what we did was to look for other venue to continue with our chit-chat.

We found a small bar which cater small number of people and wants to drinks and dine. A lot of young people were there, some were dressed like they were in a party but on the other hand, and we dressed inappropriately for that matter. As you all know, we went to the resort.

I have to end it right here, wait for the continuation. I have more things yet to be told.

A Night with Friends at the Outback Grill in Davao City

It was a well celebrated night together with my friends Elvin and April. We’ve been away from each other a few months back and now we are back again, chatting and talking our hearts out.  Anyway, I told both of them that I was going to Davao and we should meet because April went home after several months of working in Amsterdam and Elvin passed the Licensure Exam for Teachers. What a celebration, right?

Banana Split

Though we didn’t have much to eat, but honestly speaking, we were so full because of the unlimited rice and the free soup. But when you see their Menu, wow, they have many foods to offer and not to mention their humongous burger. You should try it and enjoy the scenery and the cozy ambiance.

Every Friday and Saturday, they entertained their customer by an explicitly awesome Fire Dance which we captured during our dinner there. Please watch and check it out here.

Hope you enjoy. Come and Visit Davao City for your everyday pleasure!!!!

Traveling is very fun together with the family most especially when it is done with occasion like the Chinese New Year and other important events. Visiting beautiful Traveling is very fun together with the family most especially when it is done with occasion like the Chinese New Year and other important events. places and eating delicious and sumptuous local delicacies is always good to remember.

A good way to document it is by using a good camera. I found this Nikon D5200 24.1MP DSLR w/ 18-105mm VR Lens (Black) available at LAZADA. It has a 24.1 MP lens with high-quality full HD features. Right now, it costs about 41,990 pesos instead of 51,990 pesos. I am really sure that great memories will be stored and captured perfectly using this DLSR Camera.

Another thing to have is a good communication tool. You cannot leave without any cell phone in your hand and I suggest an Apple iPhone 5S 16GB(Silver) with a Multi-touch LED backlit IPS LCD Capacitive Touchscreen and cost around 34,339.00 pesos instead of 38,413.00 pesos.

I think these are just a few, but ultimately it will bring the best out of your trip anywhere and everywhere. Hopefully, your Chinese New Year getaway will bring good luck, harmony and strong family ties.
