5 Things I Like About Davao

Davao is one of the cities in the Philippines that I had always wanted to visit, if only to experience the renowned peacefulness there. The Duterte family has been ruling the city for decades, and their strict methods have resulted in Davao being one of most desirable places to live in the country. Imagine how much fun that could be for a visitor! So when I got the chance to go there for a weekend, I didn’t really hesitate. I would pay (and am paying) for that weekend in more ways than one, but it was a good experience. To deviate from the usual way of how I write about my trips, I think I’ll do that things I like about [insert place] here thingie. Here they are, in no particular order.

Housecleaning Bratinella

Now don't get me wrong. I am not that useless around the house. My dad taught me, at an early age, to do stuff around the house. I learned how to fix a leaky faucet. I know (or knew) how to use a saw and a hammer (though my thumb did suffer at some point). I know all about concrete nails and  threaded studs . But, I just dislike cleaning the house. Sure, there is something to be said about manual labor and how it clears the brain and helps you de-stress. I totally agree with that, but having to regularly scrub the bathroom floors and making sure the bedroom floor's free of dust and hair...that's a totally different story.
