Stunning Eden Nature and Crocodile Parks in Davao

I finally set foot in Davao. The home of the highest mountain in the Philippines, the Mount Apo, and the place where the stinky but delicious Durian fruit can be found. The city is industrially called "The Crown Jewel of Mindanao" mainly because it is the financial trade center and the main hub of Mindanao.

I got there for leisure, to attend a wedding. It was also the best time to do side trips. So we decided to visit Eden Nature Park and Crocodile Park a day after the wedding. We hired a passenger jeep (pakyaw) to answer our transportation needs.

We rented an apartment in the center part of the city so going to Mount Talomo in Toril where Eden Nature park was situated took us a good hour and a half.

When we got there, each of us paid for 150 Pesos registration fee. The place was cold and very large. So large that they are providing transportation services to roam around the beauty of nature. But as nature adventurists as we are, we decided to trek the place.

We trekked about 5 kilometers circling a small part of the area. Good thing they provided us with a trekking map but the funny part was that none of us was able to properly read the map. That resulted to a longer trek than expected.

In the afternoon, we went straight to the Crocodile Park located in Brgy. Ma-a. We had our lunch there before going to the main park. We paid a registration of 150 for the entrance.

To complete our trip, we passed by Jack's Ridge to get a glimpse of Davao on top view.

After this tiring day, I went straight to my hometown, Iligan. That was one unforgettable Davao trip.

199Jobs Review

I am always on the lookout for additional income streams especially when it's online and I can earn it from home. Recently, I have discovered 199jobs.com. This is a website where you sell your services for just 199 PHP. If you are familiar with Fiverr, then this, for me, looks like local version of it. This post is my 199jobs review.

I registered to the site and see if I can make some money out of it. Registration is pretty straight forward and if you have an email or a Facebook account, you are good to go.

I am a certified online marketing specialist. So, I listed my service as a website auditor under digital marketing category. You can see my service here.

On the day my listing was published,  I already received my first order. I finished the task within 3 days as promised from my sales copy then notified the buyer and the buyer completed the task on his end. After that, I received my payment of 159 PHP. 199jobs gets 20% of each completed order. That is how they make money.

Trekking from Budlaan to Sirao Peak in Cebu

The Babag trekking group did another adventurous trekking. This time from Budlaan to Sirao; to conquer Sirao Peak.

We trekked thru the Kabang River in Budlaan then climb Sirao Peak which is approximately 750 Meters above sea level.

How we went there:

We met at sunny hills in Talamban then rode a habal-habal (25 Pesos each) going to Budlaan. Then from Budlaan, we went down to Kabang river and started trekking. We passed by 4 wonderful waterfalls then we   trekked to Sirao Peak. This whole trek started from 9 AM and ended at 5PM(where we reached the summit).

From Sirao, we rode habal2 again down to JY square. Fare is 50 pesos each.
