Welcome to the DURIAN REPUBLIC!!!

After an 8-hour land trip
over steep mountain passes in Bukidnon,

torrential rains and pea-soup fog, and
a narcoleptic driver who almost drove us off a cliff,

the STI National Youth Convention Team
safely made it to our Final Stop,

the Largest City in the World:


(total land area of 244,000 hectares,
Davao is 7.8 times the size of Cebu and
three times that of the entire Metro Manila)

The High Point of the Road Trip?

Literally, High Up in the Mountains of Bukidnon,
in the vast Pineapple Fields of Gold of Del Monte Farms
(I think the plantation is larger than Singapore!!!),

our team stopped over for steaks from cattle
raised on... what else, pineapples!!!

We had the best Pineapple Shakes ever...
from the soil direct to the blender!!!

>>> Taclobanon,

sometimes, bloggers get OC
about a particular post,
specially when they have
so much content.

we just want to make sure
that we make the the best
post possible.

my Tacloban post is coming
out next week, and i think
you'll find that it was
worth the wait ",)
