Dabawenyos Feb-14 Tips For Young Dabawenyas

Image
The “give her flower” or “gift her with chocolates” are things to be considered an outdated move for young Dabawenyos these days. Especially, this coming February 14. Dont get me wrong, Dabawenyas deserve a flower/chocolate but you need to step-up your game. 
As the generation becomes too inclined with social media, Dabawenyas become “demanding” for a guy’s effort. Real problem. Girls can be naturally envious on other couples’ sweet transactions and that is a real bad news for men. For; as demands go high, the guy’s effort value goes low. What?!
I listed down probable causes of the economics behind these millennial relationships:
1.) K-Drama I will not blame Koreans for this, but dabawenyas nowadays are looking for Oppas. And young Dabawenyos who want to make an impression are trying hard and buying BB creams just to look like one. Eaten by the system (EBTS)

Is Taho Still Your Favorite Dabawenyo Snack?

Is taho your favorite snack?  Or have you eaten one?
The taho is a popular snack in the Philippines which is made from the fresh skin of tofu, sweet syrup, sago, and other variety of add-ons like fruits; banana, jackfruit, etc.
“Tahoooo” this is how vendors usually markets their product on the street or in every barangays by shouting it. Kids or adults enjoyed this tasty snack. 
I could remember when I was still  a child, when a taho vendor shouted from place to place; we immediately prepare our glass or mug for the magtataho to serve our order. The price on that time ranges from php 3-5.
Children who used to play outside before the popularity of computer games were the very common consumers of this delicacy (batang ‘90s). The magtataho used to carry their taho buckets upon their shoulders as they walked around the town and subdivisions. 

Taho today has less recognition by the young generation because the food preference nowadays is more influenced by foreign flavors and style.

It is a 12-storey building and its name was derived from the Davaowenyos iconic fruit; the Durian. It has a complete and up-to-date facilities during its time, and could profoundly accomodate a lot of guests.  
By that time, Davao was starting to progressively elevate in its economic activities and is expecting plenty of tourists, both national and foreign, to have a traffic response in the city. Highlighting the most peak events in Davao; are the festivals like Kadayawan and the Araw ng Dabaw. 

Unexpectedly at the peak of the city's economic boom, Durian Hotel suddenly closed its doors for everyone up to this day. It is a very intriguing subject to think about as to why they abruptly released such decision. What we have in our knowing right now are just mere hearsays of what other people have shared. It is more of a "chismis&q…

Davao City will soon be acquiring a highly advance security equipment which is  intended for checkpoint in the Lasang area. According to the city mayor of Davao, Sara Duterte-Carpio, the request has been made and it will be just a matter of time for it to be utilized.
