Eden Park, Croc Park at iba park - Davao Day 3

It's our third day in Davao! We had longganisa for breakfast, and I'm not sure if it was market bought or homemade by Auntie but I can say that it was one of the best tasting longganisa I've had. Anyways, we left after the sumptuous meal and headed to Eden Nature Park. From city proper, it took roughly an hour to get there.



Entrance fee is PhP200 inclusive of plated snacks (if you want their lunch buffet, it would be PhP470). And we also availed the guided tour of PhP120. The gays thought that Kuya TourGuide resembled my ex-jowa, so he was given the nickname Jifjif. Lol.



So here's Zaicy, Jifjif and me :)
So we rode the tram and went thru with the tour around the park. Nice to know that the "forest" is 95% man-made.. and as Kuya put it, "Man can work with nature to create something beautiful". Nice thought, no?

Our first stop is the Rainbow Park..



Saw this beautiful flower..
And this weird looking Mickey Mouse Fruit!

Our next stop is the Tinubdan which means origin or source. The owner had this made as tribute to the original settlers of the mountain where the park is located.


With Cutie TJ
Touch ni Zai pwet-pwet ni Bagani.. Manyak much! :p
Pictures kasama ang mga batang nabubuhay pag gabi.. chos!

And our last stop is at Lola's Garden.. 


Si Lola Aw at ang kalabaw!
Ni-harana ako ni Zaicy! Pinahabol ko siya ng itak kay itay! Chos!
Siyempre hindi nawawala ang jumpshots!

We enjoyed the tour that lasted for almost an hour. We then walked to Eden Sports Field.



Andame kuto ni TJ.. eeeww!
Parang si crush.. malaki ang arms! ;)

This is my favorite place in Eden Park! So calm and relaxing.. We stayed here for a while and had our lunch.


The skies are for you, Mommy Joy!
For lunch - spaghetti, toast and yummy macaroons

And TJ went horseback riding.. So given na inggitera kami ni Zaicy, we also tried it. We both got nervous and got off after the first round though, lol.


Nag-enjoy ang bata!
Another first for me!
Isa lang yun guide, lagi pa si Zaicy ina-assist.. hmp!

And then we tried Indiana Jones! It's hard to explain how it works so just watch Zaicy's short video. I had so much fun with it and just watching the video makes me laugh again. Or maybe, Zaicy's laugh was just contagious, lol.



Starting position; slight kabado



After our adventure in Eden Park, we then went to the highly recommended and controversial.. Statue of David!


Another one for Mommy Joy! Parang heart di ba? :)
A term I got from Lili - Na-cock-kaloka! BTW, I miss you Lili! :)
Nagtago sa ilalim ng puno..

Now I don't know if it's the sun or David, but it was scorching hot that time. So we left few minutes later and went to Davao Crocodile Park! Entrance Fee is PhP150.




We walked around and saw other animals aside from crocodiles.It rained while we were there and thought that the show won't push thru anymore. Good thing we waited a little a more and had fun watching the Bird Show and Friendly Animal Encounter.



Pictures habang naghintay ng show!
Fed some crocodiles!
Kuya feeding the crocs inside; sobrang takot ko na baka madulas siya - praning lang ako
Meet Pangil, bestfriend ni Carlo - pinaliguan siya ng wala sa oras! :)

After the show, we went to SM Lanang to stroll a little and then had dinner at the newly opened Max's restaurant.



We ended the night with coffee in the coffee shop across Auntie's house! :D


Please stay tuned for our finale day in Davao! Mwah! ♥
