Cafe 52 Restaurant Davao

So we recently visited this Café and Restaurant and I was dazzled by the atmosphere of the newly found place with three of my best food buddies.


We usually end work at around eleven and Fridays aren’t the best days for our bank accounts too, well, just saying. We were starving, almost getting broke and but yet still willing to cut off some bucks to add some photos to our Facebook walls before we go to sleep. I mean, when you’re limited in life you tend to want more, give up the shackles and feast the bounty of a week-long hard work at a Korean Resto, yet eat western style Hawaiian Pizza with Mozzarella Cheese Overload! Yes, I love Pizzas. I never even tried to shuffle the menu furthermore because the place was getting better as you stare at it all the more.

My friend, as Asian as she is, got Kimbap for her late evening snack and the other was Chicken Cutlet, which then tasted as savoring as you munch it the second, the third and the more munch times as you can. T’was definitely yummy.

As we waited for our food, we took a million shots with all our faces, it was a built-in photo studio of all style and razzle-dazzle. But I’ll be showing you some shots I borrowed from their Facebook page Cafe 52 (thank you). And, the place is a complete runway too! You can show off your best pose anywhere you like, any niche and nook will help your beauty to be as acceptable as it can be, lol, you need not use camera 360 for this one trust me.

And yet like any other Restaurants, the food price ranges from about 50-350 per course, depending on your meal. Their Ice Green Tea Matcha, was heaven, and 160 pesos per beer mug too; its design was intricately adorable. It was a bit pricey but it was surely soul uplifting at the same time. You would actually want to steal the mug once emptied. I tried that, but nah, XD. The staff service was amazing too, they had this call-for-service button or maybe I just don’t know what to call it, so if your table needs something or too lazy to get a table napkin or what, you can just press the buzzer and the food counter will announce a big resounding alarm that will mean you are too lazy to do something and yes it was savvy enough for me somehow in some ways. Lol.

Then my Pizza, or OUR pizza came, and the presentation of the overloaded cheese just melted all our hearts away, it was like every bit of scene you see in TV Commercials! We awed to its grandeur and beauty and lost our humanity we ate it by hands and stole the forks and knives away, nope, not actually. My fingers felt the soft crust and the aromatic cheese created a web of threads and it made me feel so special, I was about to cry.

We got bulging tummies by 12:30 and as Pinoys as we truly are left a slice of Pizza on the table, we couldn’t just handle another bite at all. We were full and paid almost a thousand peso bill and of course, stayed for awhile to spread the good word with smiling billion photos and satisfied stomachs online. The wifi connection was synonymous to The Flash, my friend uploaded more than thirty single photos in less than two minutes. It was heavenly satisfying to the core you need not to waste a single second. But yet as time as it is, we need can’t stay long and shouted our goodbyes.

And there’s an open mini-bar outside too, the usual drinking session you can have ending up at around 2AM. And the best thing is, the place is actually somewhere hidden in the heart of Davao, Torres Street fronting the left side of the Davao Wisdom Academy and at the back of Caltex Gas Station. Plaza de Bole, F. Torres St., Poblacion, Davao City, Davao del Sur is the exact address.

The Feeling of Life

That time when you learn
Why friends don’t really care that much,
not because they don’t really care at all
but because they know you’re strong enough to take care of yourself.
That they see, they may actually need you more than you need of them.
Once a psychologist said: the strongest person cries the most.
This is I guess, because every time he is reminded of the slightest memory
of all the sufferings he’d been through
he doesn’t have anymore choice but to cry.
And that would mean you’re a survivor,
a very strong survivor.
Reality sees you as the epitome of irony.
If reality could speak it’d be sarcastic enough to ask why you’re still alive?
And this adds up to your resume as a person.
Another qualification of maturity, another step to future.
Thus, move forward. As they say, it’s the only path to take.
Yes. And but I say choose what path is worth taking for.
Do whatever makes you happy.
Tomorrow is a mystery,
such a very nice and beautiful mystery,
I will never know what you will be capable of doing.
So, cheers to tomorrow!
And pray that it may be so good not to provide you
all that you want in life but just enough.
Just enough.


Okay, so I really don’t know how to start this. I mean, hearsay as it is that blogging comes with money nowadays, really? Well, how?

Actually, I’m not into the bucks and greens. I’m here to write something about how I think of how I should live my life. If you disagree, well, can you point me someone who knows how to live life?

Well, that’s what I’ve thought so too. Anyway, eight unproductive years ago I’ve seen this novice blogger linked from a friend’s friendster account and I’ve gone fancy about it since the blogger wrote on things about his life and I, as a natural human being, was envious to try one.

But then again, I was poor. My parents were too, so I never got the luxury to come back home from school and flip-open a laptop nor press an AVR to discover the realms beyond the Internet. I only got to ask for a few pennies and travel downtown then rent a computer from a Net Cafe in order to use one and be frenzied by the Net, the scams, the “You’ve won blah blah blah” and everything under almost anything at all. As it usually goes here on developing countries.

Like friendster (may it rest in peace), I would have wanted a blog that can be customized to your heart’s content. Change the layout, background, color, text colors, add photos and everything else you can experiment in and out and poof you are then happy!

I never had the problem with how to comprehend how the Internet works, you just go ahead and click whatever you can and as long as the monitor didn’t shut out or turned black then I guess I’m doing it all just perfectly fine.

Now, life came in between from then and now, I got busy for a few years and but now, oh no, you’re wrong, I’m not filthy rich, but the thing is at least now, I have the luxury to fulfill my long lost broken dreams of yesterdays (puke): to create my own blog and hope that the world doesn’t end tomorrow so I can see if somebody actually read this or not.

Well, I hope I can meet someone worth having friendship here. That’s why you have blogs, right? Am I doing this right? Please tell if you have violent reactions, comments and no suggestions, I wouldn’t follow it anyway.


Blog it all away!
