1:51 PM

Given the somewhat tight schedule that I run (balancing work+extra gigs+relationship+family+blog) on a regular basis, I always try to make do with what little extra time I do get. A night out with friends or beaching in the weekend is usually enough to stave off my hunger for some much-needed R&R, but at times when the stress is much more than you bargained for and those just aren't enough, then you know you gotta man up and file a longer vacation leave, pack your bags, and jetset!

With that, I knew I couldn't resist my friend Jossa's invitation to head out to Davao City, one of the biggest cities in Southern Philippines.I've only heard remarkable things about it thus far, so I just had to book my flight the first moment I could-and was it a sojourn for the books! The place was visually arresting, and it's a metropolis that still stays close to its traditional roots... it was easy to fall in love with Davao and the warmth and safety that emanates from the place is just absolutely charming.:)

I packed most of my platforms and heels but ironically ended up NOT being able to use them at all and instead opted to walk around in my completely worn-out flats-I may rarely step into them but this time I'm grateful that I did, as it afforded me all  the sights and sounds I can possibly take in of this beautiful city.:)
