Thrill and Trail at River Ford Resort

Sunday, April 13, 2008... The weather was gloomy. Out of boredom, my friends and I agreed to spend the lazy Sunday at the River Ford Resort, Catalunan Grande, Davao City. Just about 10 minutes away from my house at Elenita Heights. It was drizzling that afternoon when we get there. Wendel, Anna, Jack and I hurried inside the resort when we get there as the weather's about get worse.

The place is not that really developed compared to those of other famous inland resorts. But if you're looking for a a quite, secluded and uncrowded resort, River Ford Resort is the place to be. It is a home for nature lovers and people who would like to escape from the noise of the city. It is a haven for those who love serenity and peace. That is the reason why it used to be the home of the late national artist NVM Gonzales whenever he was in Davao and needed a peaceful and quite place to stay. Nick Joaquin too stayed a lot a times here. The caretaker said some of the great works of both artists were done here at River Ford. Statue of NVM Gonzales and Nick Joaquin were around the place - proof that they part of the resort.

There are few "kubo" for a night a accomodation ranging from Php 600.00 to Php 1,000.00. But the highlight of our unplanned trip to the Resort was the thrilling trailing down at the foot Davao River. The slopes were a bit slippery. It was fun. We had fun though. Funny, Anna was in her high heels but she had to come down to the river with us. Tagam ang Anna!!!!!!!! Ang Wendel and Jack naman, pabadlong. Walang kamatayang picture taking. Career. Pang friendster daw.

T'was tiring but the green sceneries and the nature around us lessened the stresses we had for day.

T'was late when we were back home. Jack left to meet some friends of his while the 3 of us hurried home for dinner. Phillip came and prepared his infamous LAW-OY. The best law-oy in the whole world. Never tasted a law-oy such delectable as his. A feast in our stomach. Hmmmmmmmmmmm..... It was raining that night, four us had a great time talking about River Ford trip while feasting on Phillip's law-oy.

What a great day!

Good day, sun shines!
There have been times of hardship when I felt unhappy missing knowledge about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright pessimistic person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I begin take up real income.
It gets down to select a proper partner who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real deals, parts and divides the income with me.

You may get interested, if there are such firms? I have to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
