Ika-74 Araw ng Dabaw

Today marks the City of Davao’s 74th Foundation Day. Davao is a blessed city: a vast land that is rich, a climate that is enviable (if a bit too humid at times), and a people who — though not possessing a long history vis-à-vis the Philippines’ major tribes — do come together as Dabawenyos and […]

Mayor signs Kadayawan 2009 E.O.

Here’s a copy of Executive Order #13, signed by City Mayor Rodrigo Duterte, creating the steering committee that will oversee the organization of this year’s Kadayawan sa Dabaw festival. These are very capable and dedicated people in the steering committee, and the private sector, as always, is very supportive. Ergo, we can expect an even […]

New emergency response center

Davao City still enjoys the distinction of being the only city in the Philippines with an emergency response center available on call 24 hours a day. Just dial 911 on any landline or mobile phone (toll free) in case of emergency. Recently, the Davao City 911 Emergency Response Center opened a new operations hub in […]

Walking tour of Davao at night

I’d hoped we could chance upon good shots […]

Concerto — an indie film

From my family mailing list, I got a heads-up about an independent film by Director Paul Alexander Morales, Concerto. According to the trailer and blog, the film is about a family in Davao and their ordeal during the last part of World War II. To the right is the movie poster, which I got from […]

Davao City: most competitive in RP

Another metric by which Davao City can proudly affirm her status as a major player in Philippine industry is the Philippine Cities Competitiveness Ranking Program (PCCRP) of the Policy Center of the Asian Institute of Management. Results of the PCCRP’s biennial study (2007), presented in Makati last 4 July 2008, declare that Davao ranks Number […]

Local government modernization

With all the Internet-based services and new technologies available to the global audience, it’s rather frustrating that we still don’t have a full-service mapping system for Davao City. All we have available are tourist maps that aren’t even to scale, and road maps that aren’t really road maps at all. The city government actually has […]
