Skywatch#52 Davao Muslim Mosques

We visited two Muslim mosques and a Catholic church last weekend. It was my first time to get inside a Muslim mosque and I was really quite curious. Both mosques were not that large and in fact quite simple in design.

The first one was located among the slums and while it was small, the people we found there were quite accommodating and curious with us. The 2nd one was larger but the mosque was closed after the worship hour and the caretaker wouldn't let us in. He did let us took picture of the perimeters of the mosque though.

My World#91 Canon Photomarathon 2010 – Davao Leg

Davao City had its first Canon Photomarathon just this weekend. It was well-attended by photography buffs who came complete with their photography arsenals. The venue was held at Davao Convention Center.

The photomarathon had three themes for the day. The participants then were given two hours and a half to submit their entries. Top prize was the latest Canon DSLR EOS60D aside from that, participants were given t-shirts, caps, free printing from Canon PIXMA printers and more fun giveaways.

And these are the participants on their way out of the venue to look for their first theme entries.

Skywatch#51 Changing Colors

I took these photos in a span of just a few minutes from each other. It's just amazing that the colors of the sky change so fast in just a short time.

Photos were taken at Brgy. Lucap, Alaminos, Pangasinan. The place is the jump-off point in going to the famous Hundred Islands National Park.

My World#90 Who Can Climb The Highest?

I first heard them shouting while playing on the playground right next to the tennis court. While we were having a break from our game, I peeped out to check why they were so noisy. It turned out that they were having a mini-contest on who could climb the highest on those trees.

It was quite dangerous and we asked them to stop. I took the first shot while they were climbing down.

I think, this is a better height to climb on than those tall trees, whadya think? :)

The kids stayed for awhile and watched us continue our tennis game. During our breaks, we  learned that they were actually gathering firewood and was just taking a break to climb trees. Ah, kids!

My World#90 Paintings On The Wall

I found these paintings hanging on the wall of Royal Mandaya Hotel. Both paintings have a local taste in it such as one painting shows a colorfully decorated boat carrying local people in their traditional clothes.

Photobucket

This one is a painting of a Philippine eagle, which is one of the things our city is known for, with the waterfalls in the background.

It's too bad that I was not able to get the name of the artist of these two paintings. I could've shared their names here.

Skywatch#49 On Our Way to Mt. Pinatubo

The roads to Mt. Pinatubo were not only very dusty and hot but also dangerous. Roads or some sort of roads were entirely covered by thick layers of ash. It was easy to get lost out there and local guides really helped a lot.  The lahar landscape was beautiful and at the same time, surreal.

My World#89 Philippine Eagle Center

Photobucket


The Philippine Eagle Center is where the Philippine eagles are being bred in captive with the hope of saving them from getting extinct. There are about 36 Philippine eagles in captive and 18 of which were captive-bred. Some more bird species were there (a lot of them are being treated and rehabilitated after getting hunted by people who didn't know any better), some mammals and reptiles.

Philippine Eagle Center,Mindanao,Davao City
The eagles are the real crowd drawers though and the center has always been a must-see for Davao City visitors.

Getting there is easy enough..

Just ride a bus from the Annil bus terminal for Calinan located at Bankerohan Market, San Pedro Ext.-Quirino Ave.. Bus fare is P30 and it's an hour ride from the city. Tell the bus conductor that you're on your way to the Eagle Center and they'll drop you off at the pedicab terminal going to the center. Fare is P7 per person and it's about 20 minute ride away from the Calinan poblacion.

Photobucket
Two different entrance fees are charged before entering the premises. Not to worry. They are quite minimum and are being used for the conservation, preservation and maintenance not only of the center but also the watershed the surrounds it. Davao City Water District which maintains the watershed area charges are: P5.00 for adults and P3.00 for kids. The center itself charge fees are: P50.00 for adults and P30.00 for kids.
