Offering Services in Davao

You might be wondering is this an advertisement, and maybe it is. As you can see, I have had this site for about 2 years. Originally, it was a free site on Google BlogSpot. After a year, with some encouragement I purchased a server service and registered my own domain. Now this is not the main reason for this article, but I want to explain a little history. I had dreams of making an income from advertisements on the site. I...

Hamburgers in Davao

Since I have lived in Davao, I have tried hamburgers at some of the restaurants here, some had good points, and some had not so good points. The most consistent in a flavor comparable to America was McDonald’s. I am not saying it was a great burger, but the taste was the same as the Big Mac I would have in America. At some of the better restaurants, I would try a burger and they were ok but not great. Either the meat...

Well as you might know, I am originally from New York where their pizza is famous. So one Saturday Elena and I...

In America I have lived well at times and there have been times I have lived...

American Feast in Davao

Last week, for my anniversary, Elena told me we would go to the Marco Polo Hotel for our celebration dinner. Since we have the privilege membership at the hotel, we get one free meal at their restaurants. Elena checked her email to see if they were having one of the cuisine specials this month and they did. This month they are having “Wild Wild West” American Buffet at the Café Marco. We also have a couple we are friends...

Recollections of Restaurants

The other day as I was writing my article about Bigby’s I started thinking of places and restaurants I enjoyed in the States. I have lived in New York, different parts of California and in Florida. Also I had traveled to many places. I also enjoy good foods and different atmospheres. One of my favorite foods is Italian foods. I enjoy the usual pasta and parmesan dishes but I also enjoy unique type dishes made in the Italian...
