Going Random 1

Nothing exciting is going on... so I might as well bombard you with Information today... and share five random nothings that might be something. I'll be having this kind of segment when the mood strikes me.. hehe

1. I.T. Parks

Cebu just had their I.T. park... and I was really eyeing Damosa's progress ever since then. I know it would be proclaimed as an I.T. park one day... and it was. Damosa (Davao Motor Sales), is a place here in Davao.... and it is being developed. New establishments opens almost every other week.

2. La Toscana - A taste of Italy

I finally got the chance to dine at La Toscana last April 1, 2007. It is an authentic Italian restaurant... with the Italian owner as it's chef. Lovely, cozy place and yummy authentic Italian dishes.

So, if you visit Davao and you are craving for an Italian dish... drop by @ La Toscana

Review over the place: HERE

3. Photo-Reading

I saw a video about Photo-Reading last night... I got three techniques that I need to work on. I know it's not enough, but-hey I will perfect it and when I get the whole Photo-reading module.. I'd be photo-readig everything! Woohoo.

So.. Watch out my Mushroom Book Stands.. I won't be buying loads of books.. I'd photo read them in a couple of minutes and see whether I want to buy it or not.


Ive seen loads of Korean business people ever since last year. They've been investing loads of money here in Davao, in fact they have already overtaken the investment of the Japs here.

In fact one of our hotels, Apo View was rented for a year by the Koreans... they opened up a Korean barbeque... hmmm that's one place I would love to try.

Info here: Korean Business Chamber in Davao


5.A Mount Apo hiker dies

I saw the news and the video of his drowning. Yes, he drowned at Lake Venado, just below the peak of Mount Apo . The natives in Apo believed the Lake is enchanted, and it was not it's first incident. Many hikers have died when they tried to swim the lake.

Come on, who wouldn't? The lake is 20 ft deep and cold, for crying out loud. The hiker was recovered after 3 days.

So, before you jump-in... safety first guys. :)

I prefer Italian than Korean food. So I hope the Italian business people will follow the Koreans!
Sad story about that hiker on Mt. Apo.

Angelo said...

I heard about that photo reading technique. Let me know if it's effective, maybe I should look into it coz I always have a lot of reading to do Not reading for leisure, but for work and aral purposes, so it's not fun.

Wow that's a deep lake, sounds pretty dangerous. Ingat Tina, and have a great week!

Cat said...

morning tin

you're from Davao pala Heard you have great beaches there

just reading your post made me imagine Davao: real nature and the urban jungle rolled into one!

Davao is a very big place,and catering and creating more attractions and services will make Davao more diverse and interesting.

about the accident. Many of us are oblivious to the danger but we take chances and ignore the danger signs. but I cant help myself feel pity for that person.

nakakalungkot yuung hiker sa mt apo, malamig nga sa lake venado at dahil di naman flowing ang tubig ay talagang ma-burak ang ilalim ng lake. at may mga canal yan na malalalim, hirap ma trap sa mga canal na yan.

Mari said...

Sorry to hear about that guy who drowned in the lake. 20 ft is deep, but doesn't matter, some people drown at 5 ft deep if they don't know the water--river or lake. Cool resto you got here.

Shari said...

Italian, for me, means pasta. And anything pasta is delicious. Although I've never really dined in an Italian restaurant before. I'm more of a foodcourt person. Davao Tuna Grill? :D

Koreans. They're here, they're there there, they're everywhere.

I'll just rephrase this:

So, before you jump-in... safety first guys.

So, before you jump-in... don't jump in at all! :p

It's always sad to hear that another fellow mountaineer to die during a climb. Minsan talaga kahit gaano ka kaingat, di mo maiiwasan ang ganyang pangyayari.

Dami na palang karagdagang mabibisita sa Davao. Kelangan ko na talaga mag sched ng trip dyan.

yung nalunod? in my own opinion, siguro dahil sa sobrang lamig, baka nagka leg cramps, bikog! hehe.. so yun siguro.. a.. e.. ewan..

I think the IT park in Cebu was built since 2000 or something like that. But it was populated with classy bars and pubs.

I havent been to Davao yet but I hope I can soon.

hi tina, drop by from fingertalks' site.
looks like there are a lot more to see in davao, when i went there five or six years ago (work related) i've only been to the airport, marco polo, client, the venue, marco polo, the tiange fronting the hotel and then airport again. masyadong exciting davao trip ko no? hehehe.

hope to go back again and explore the place.

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never imagined that there weren't any need in big initial investment.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I started take up real income.
