the escapade continues..

Started the day with short prayers at the Sta. Anna Church

Breakfast at Taps- I had baconsilog (bacon,siningag rice plus itlog (egg)) 

After breakfast, we headed to the Pradise Island Nature Resort. For us to get to the island we need to ride a " lantsa"(boat).

Face in hole!lol

Other activities that you can enjoy:

50 pesos of the Entrance fee is consumable so we decided to chill down and grab some shakes.Got to taste the Durian Shake , it tastes good for me considering that I'm not a Durian fan

Explored Abreeza after the Paradise trip, it's very much similar to Ayala Center Cebu.Restaurants which I could not find in Cebu are Ranch and Reef (steak and Shrimp buffet) in which were supposed to have lunch but we reached there at 2:30 pm and buffet is yet to resume dinner time.They also have Sumo Sam, Ranchero and the Seafood Island to name a few.You can also find the Paris Hilton store in Abreeza.

Since we didn't get the chance to experience the shrimps and steak buffet, the craving shifted to pizza so we headed to Picobello which is located 5th floor of the Gaisano Center. 

We were able to avail the Buy 1 Take 1 Pizza.Promo starts from 2 pm - 5 pm but for Dine in only.

Explored SM City Davao and tried Blu Gre Coffee. I had the Durian Frappe and it was so tasty!Paired off our coffee with Cello's doughnuts. It's one of the best doughnuts I've tasted.I was able to try a variety of flavors namely cheese, honey glazed, oreo and peanut butter and everything taste good.Hope we can have it soon in Cebu as well.

NCCC mall tour- This Avatar Guy caught our attention. He really doesnt talk and does not even do the slightest! They had this to promote Avatar in 3D .Had this pose to see if we can get a reaction from him.The verdict?We failed. Good job Man!ha ha ha

Dinner Time at Dencio's which was located at the Hill Top. The last time I visited Davao I just had a picture with the Dencio's sign as my background so I made sure that this time I could dine in and yes! Mission Accomplished!
Specialty Barbecue Chicken
Since they offer unlimited rice for this package, so they will serve you with 2 cups of rice 

Statue of David -This statue was sculpted by Michael Angelo.
FYI: This is just one of the replicas.I really could not recall other places where-else it  is situated but  as far as I could recall Australia was one of them which is in Queensland. Apparently, this statue was located right beside Queensland motel.

Last Day:

Flight was 10:45 am.
Had breakfast at Penong's 

We had pinakbet (the best I've ever tasted),battered chicken, pancit canton and bulalo(not in the picture).

It was indeed a worthwhile stay in Davao. Despite the time constraint, we were able to explore not may be all the places but majority of the places in which a " tourist" should go.
Thank you to Jay's family for the hospitality!Till next time guys!
