Paul Santos. Museo Dabawenyo.
Museo Dabawenyo guide Paul Untal proudly points out the finer details of the triptych "Tri-People" by Desiderio Satorre, Jr. The mixed media piece welcomes visitors to the center, which exhibits and flaunts the rich heritage and culture of Davao City. Satorre's artwork recognizes and honors the diverse, multicultural identity not only of the city of Davao, but of the whole Mindanao itself. Christian, Moro, and Lumad features and representations (okir and ukkil patterns, the cross, and repeating geometric arrangements) form a singular composite face, in harmony with all the elements.
Lorena. Radio Producer.
In her spare time, radio producer Lorena Sullano assists visitors around her city, especially during periods of festivities and events. In a moment of respite in between scheduled activities, she unwinds against a sarimanok mural by famed visual and performance artist Kulai Millan in one of Davao's malls.
Davao Street Food
Dod's. Touted as the best street food in Davao City.
Panga. Isaw. Sinugba. Usual fare made extraordinary by genuine hospitality and the common touch and comfort reminiscent of lola's kitchen.
Just real food in a no frills setting. Among real people.
