HAZARD

In the recently concluded Palaraong Pambansa held in Koronadal, South Cotabato, two sports officials died due to the extreme heat.

It’s not true anymore that it is fun to stay in the sun and play sports to stay healthy.

More deaths have befallen the Palaro participants,  yesterday the contingent from Isabela, Cagayan figured in a bus accident, killing two athletes and three supervisors. Forty others are injured. Our prayers for those who have gone away.

On to positive news on the palaro, a Davaoeño kid won a gold medal in boxing. Goes to show that Mindanao produces great boxing proteges. Keep it up, boys.  You might become world champions in the future.  But please, don’t ever think of running in politics when you have success in your heads.

A kite wire reportedly caused an army chopper to crash in Lapu-Lapu, Cebu.  Soldiers are befuddled that a kite can be a weapon of mass destruction.

Araw ng Dabaw

The hard times, plus being election year, may have somewhat dampen the spirit in this year’s celebration.

But still, I and Che was able to see the parade during the Araw ng Davao. The weather was fair so we are spared from the hot sun.

We got to see the floats that presented the history of Davao. Also eye-catching were the parade of arms and tanks of the military.

It was also fun to see celebrities like the Sex Bomb Girls. And being election year, candidates were seen on stage with Mayor Rody Duterte.

It was still an enjoyable day for Davaoeños. Basta dinhi sa Davao, lingaw.

Here are pictures taken from the parade by davaotoday.
