Hello again with me in Day 2! Me and the group started our morning by visiting Museo Dabawenyo, a must-visit place for everyone wanting to know more about the history of Davao City. I love this place. There is so much information that we can get from here such as the culture of Davao citizens. We also found out that the water in Davao is the 2nd cleanest water in the world after New Zealand and Davao received an award for being one of the safest cities in the world. A funny and unique fact at the museum was a woman statue who citizens believed that touching it would give them children in their marriage.
After we were done with the museum, we went to the Philippines Eagle Foundation - a park-forest for all kinds of eagles. The main rule of visiting the place was that we needed to be silent since the eagles didn't like noise.
Their wings were sooo pretty so I couldn't see the difference between which one was male or female. Hehe. Then I asked my guide and he said the one with the bigger body (which seems to be muscle) was the male. I asked again where all the females were since all eagles that I saw were male. He answered that all the females were pregnant now and so they were moved to a more silent and safe area.
It was great to know how eagles lived in real life, like how the females got pregnant, the types of food that eagles eat, etc. The best thing that we got from this visit was that we met a humble, smiling man who could communicate with those eagles. Because of him we could take a photo with the eagles at a close distance. Thank you Sir! :)
After playing around with the eagles, we headed to Malagos to have some cheese & chocolate tasting and had lunch too since it was already lunch time. Don't worry, it was all Halal.
After we were done with our lunch, we went to find a mosque to take Salat. Sadly, we couldn't find a mosque at the village so we went straight back to the city. We then finally we found a mosque inside the Islamic Centre of Davao. Unfortunately there was no praying dress here so I picked socks to cover my feet up.
It was 35 degrees here so I needed to wear clothes of a good fabric that provided a cold effect, like this batik asymmetric tunic.
The time was already 3 o'clock so we headed to the Pearl Farm Resort - a very beautiful resort in Samal Island. We had a pretty sunset on board as well. Oh what a view! When we arrived at the resort, I was amazed by the resort itself. How they managed one area from another area was pretty cool because it brought a comfortable feeling to all guests.
After having checked in our luggage, the guide brought us to a beautiful area for dinner. Seriously, I didn't know what to say about my dinner since it was so great and yumm yumm! I could eat four plates and still not feel full. Haha.
After eating like a zombie, the guide let us try the famous mango juice. And we were like "Yaa Rabb, why this mango juice soo good?!" Hehe. Trust me guys, it wasn't sticky like other mango juice out there.
Then a surprise arrived. The fire dancers! Oh I loved this performance. Having a dinner in the middle of the island with fire dancers in front us was a really nice experience. We really enjoyed the night. And we closed the day's activities with some plate of raw mango.
Oh what a fun day! I'm happy!
I'll see you guys on Day 3. Wassalamu'alaikum Wr. Wb.
