As someone who doesn’t know how to drive, I have always relied on taxi cabs to take me to places where I need to go, especially when I am in a hurry. Now that I am living more than an hour away from downtown Davao, it has become a bit more challenging to commute, especially when my husband is not around to drive for me. Thankfully, Grab Philippines is always there to come to my rescue. I can easily book a cab and wait for my ride outside of my doorstep – so convenient and hassle-free.
Also, not only does Grab save me from my commuting problems, but Grab Food also saves our hungry tummies when I’m not in the mood to cook. It’s safe to say that I am one happy Grab subscriber and I couldn’t be happier that this ride-hailing service is available for us Davaoeños.

Nokia will always have a special place in my heart. Like the rest of the world, my first ever mobile phone was Nokia – a fancy 3410 with a mint green casing. I’ve also owned several other models like the 6310i, 2100, 6070, and the last one was the Nokia 5310 XpressMusic , which I still have up to this very day. It’s barely breathing now but I couldn’t throw it away because it was the first ever phone I bought out of my own salary.
Anyway, enough nostalgia. I’m just happy to share that the new Nokia Smartphones – Nokia 7 plus, Nokia 1, New Nokia 6 and Nokia 8110 4G – has arrived and they will all be available in Davao by mid-May. This awesome news was confirmed by HMD Global during a press launch last April 26, 2018 at Seda Hotel, Davao City.
Have a closer look at these new gorgeous smartphones.
Going through a huge hurdle in the beginning of the year was tough. I welcomed the new year with high hopes and a fresh start, only to be dragged down the pit 18 days later. I tried to keep myself busy; if only to conceal the longing I have inside. I got too busy, that at some point, I felt like it was draining the life out of me.
On the outside, It seems like I’m okay and that I have fully adjusted to the “new normal”. But inside, I know something in me will never be the same. I lost a part of me that I know I’ll never get back. They say people who laugh and smile a lot are the saddest people. I never really truly understood that, until one day, I found myself smiling through the palpable pain. It may not be true all the time, but at the moment, it is my reality. Most days, I wake up, smile, and just hope for the best.
I am all over the place, I know, but I am far from being cynical. I still have a life ahead of me. So here I am, slowly trying to get back on track. After all, it’s only been six months since I lost my sister.Read More »
