Davao Escapade - May 2008

Day after the wedding, May 19, me and hubby went to Davao City to rest for a while and spend 3 days away from the stress the wedding brought us. Some call it "honeymoon".

Our trip was scheduled at 12:05 in the afternoon but delayed to 1:00 and further delayed to around 2pm. Upon arrival to Davao City, we were greeted with smiles by locals and were fetched by Kuya ___, Ate ___'s brother in law. We were grateful that we have connections in Davao coz taxis for tourist might cost us huge amount. He then took us to a port where a banca will take us to our ultimate destination "The Pearl Farm Resort". Kuya still have work that day so he has to leave us at the reception area. I was tired na from the long ride and wanted to just lie on bed and sleep but sad news came to us once more when the receptionist told us that the banca just left and the next one will come at 6pm, we were there at 4:15 the banca left at 4pm. The plane got delayed then we failed to ride the banca leading us to the room where we could rest. What a fortune huh? But through all these we have remained calm, why bother eh we have each other naman. Besides the main agenda is to destress ayt? Well we got some nyemnyem's hungry tummy problem, but were solved by ordering a meal at the port's medyo pricey cafeteria.

So at 6:45pm we arrived at the island! So glad. Yey yey! Nyemnyem who gets tired easily, slept upon reaching our bed. But before that, we had our pictorial first
with the swan shaped towel adorned with flowers in our bed! What a welcome treat. The room is cozy and nice! The perfect room to relax!

So snooze it was for me, (to my hubby's disappointment hehe), till 11pm when my tummy calls for food. Buti na lang tinotolerate ni duds ang tummy calls ko siguro gutom na din sya. So before midnight we were munching our adobo, yum yum!

May 20 was spent eating (as i never get tired of eating), roaming the place (which we found super quiet and relaxing, hopping to the nearby Malipano Island to again unwind and last swimming! Pearl Farm is best for couples who want to stay away from their busy routine, it is for people who doesnt need live bands to cradle them at night.

Btw, after lunch we went up to our room to rest a little. To our surprise our room was clean, bedsheets in place and a little turtle shaped towel was on our bed to welcome us back. Funny thing was all our clothes which were scattered all over the room were now neatly placed beside our bed. Hahaha, dyahe sa room service kasi pati panty and brief inayos nya hahaha! Oh well, that's their task and besides di naman namin alam na mag-ruroom service pala sila. Buti na lang our valuables were kept in the locker!

We have to bid bye bye to the island on May 21st. We will have to catch our plane due to depart at 4pm. Kuya once again fetched us and there in the back seat was a box of suha for our pasalubong and consumption. Gustong gusto ko na sya kainin sa kotse pa lang, ang bango kasi. Pero syemps shy girl ang lola mo di muna kumain.

So we were at the airport at around 1:30pm just in time for our 2:20pm flight back to manila. To our dismay, though we were not surprised, Cebu Pacific plane got delayed again for an hour. hahaha. So there at Davao Airport we lounged and almost fell asleep. Nyemnyem enjoyed the cashew nuts we bought at the airport, yummy!

We landed in Manila grounds around 5pm and arrived in San Marcos at 7pm. Three days spent alone with my hubby, I could not ask for more!
