3 Places With Best Durian Deals in Davao City

Aside from the fact that the current President of the Philippines Rodrigo Duterte came from Davao City, it is also famous for another thing, Durian. The phrases "king of all fruits" and "taste like heaven but smells like hell" all refer to Durian because of it's pungent smell when ripe. This fruit is famous in Southeast Asian countries like Malaysia and Thailand. And as indicated earlier, here in the Philippines, Durian is indigenous in Davao region.

So if it happens that you're in Davao City between the months of August and November, here are three places where you can have the best deal for this incredible fruit.



1. Magsaysay Park

There are fruit stands outside Magsaysay Park, a piece of land named after a former president of the country. Here, you'll find different types of fruits depending on which part of the year. But during the Durian season, the notorious fruit dominates them all. You can get to eat Durian for a price of 60 Pesos (1.20 USD) per kilo.

Each vendor offers a set of tables and chairs where guests can eat in front of the stalls. And since many claim that Durian is best eaten with soda, you can also buy a liter of soda for 35 pesos (0.70 USD).

2. People's Park

Another place where you can get a good deal for Durian is in People's Park, another public park in Davao City. You can basically get a Durian here with the price of about 80 Pesos (1.60 USD) per kilo.

3. Bangkerohan Market

Bangkerohan Market will likely give you the best deal for Durian. You can get it for as low as 50 Pesos (1 USD) per kilo. Depending on quantity and type of Durian, it can even be bargained for a lower price.

Other Fruits at a Lower Cost

Mangosteen and Pomelos are also cheap in these locations especially during their seasons. Harvest season for Mangosteen is usually from July to September while Pomelo season starts August and ends in December. So to catch these fruits altogether with Durian, better be in Davao in the month of September. You'll see abundance in fruits at crazy cheap prices.

4 Steps to Replace Stolen or Lost Passbook

My passbook (inside my bag) was recently stolen inside a local grocery store, and I would like to share the steps I took to secure my account and get a new passbook.      By User:Aerous ", CC BY-SA 3.0 , Link The steps outlined here are for a BPI savings account, but generally, the procedure will be very similar to other banks in the Philippines. 1.

Resigning? SSS Will Deduct Your Loan Balance from Your Last Pay

The purpose of this article is to inform the public about this policy of the Social Security System (SSS), the government-owned insurance company for those employed in the private sector. I just learned about this a few months ago when my company announced a workforce reduction program. Among the sad discussions is about this policy of SSS regarding loans in cases of resignation or retrenchment.

In other words, y ou will be required to pay the rest of your loan (including the interest) when you change employer or employment statu

How Much Does a MRI Scan Costs in the Philippines?

My dad needs a Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan for his prostate problem. I did a little research on how much does it cost to have one. Well, it depends on many factors, such as which body part is to be scanned. There's also this technique called "MRI with contrast," wherein the patient will be injected with a chemical to make the scan clearer. For your information, this technique of adding contrast is known as  Gadolinium Contrast Medium . It adds cost to the procedure, but with more clarity, the more you can trust the diagnosis.

We got it in  i-Scan Healthcare Inc.  here in Quezon City. The cost is  13000 Pesos . Please take note that the amount was just for the scan, and a separate professional will read the result. Some laboratories offer this service (i.e
