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.

Thanks to Joie Arevalo for all the photos.

Honda Beat Scooter Review

After using my Honda Beat scooter for a year, I decided to make this review for the benefit of those who are  planning to buy this scooter. I'm not gonna lie, the points you will read below contain more positive statements about this motorcycle simply because I loved it and still loving it. I will try my best to sound unbiased.

[Fixed] Call to undefined function GuzzleHttp\Handler\curl_reset() Error

I operate a couple of job portals that accept online applications. The applications are sent directly to the employer's email. One day, all of the sites cannot send any applications. I was receiving the following error:

Fatal error: Call to undefined function GuzzleHttp\Handler\curl_reset() in /home3/boyiboyi/public_html/wp-content/plugins/gmail-smtp/google-api-php-client/vendor/guzzlehttp/guzzle/src/Handler/CurlFactory.php on line 78

I am using a 3rd party SMTP management plugin called Gmail SMTP Plugin so I contacted them. They checked the error and said everything was fine on their side. They suggested updating my PHP version.

Solution:

So, I went to the CPanel dashboard in my Hostgator hosting and updated the PHP version from 5.4 to 5.6.

It fixed the error for all of my sites.

How to update the PHP version in Hostgator:

1. Login to your customer portal.
2. Go to Hosting and click on Hosting dashboard
3. Click on manage databases and click Home on the newly opened tab. The class…

Claim Your Google Adsense Earnings Through Unionbank of the Philippines Wire Transfer

I have been receiving Google Adsense earnings through Western Union every month for the past couple of years. This month, days before my scheduled payout, I got a notification from Google to change my payment method from Western Union to a wire transfer. Over the years, I only use my wife's Unionbank account in all my online transaction so I am not sure if I can use it for Google Adsense. I can only try to add it so I did.

I use the form below to add the new payment method. I only filled up the name on the bank account, bank name, SWIFT BIC, and account number.


Unionbank SWIFT BIC UBPHPHMMXXX.
On the date of payout, I received an email from Google that they sent the money already. I was anxious because I am not sure if that would go through the bank. The bank did not notify my wife or anything. 
Usually, with Western Union, I can get the money once they sent the email with the MTCN code. But with the wire transfer, the only thing I can do is wait. One full day after I received the…
