Our 11 Tribes was recognized on 2010 by our President Rodrigo Roa Duterte, when he was still a Mayor in Davao City. He appointed deputy mayors for each tribe to represent the Muslim and Lumads in the city of Davao.

Davao City is the only city that takes pride the unique and diversified culture of tribes, that is why we celebrate with the United Nation -- the International Day of the World's Indigenous People every 9th of August as we take honor, respect and protect their cultures and traditions.

And as we celebrate Kadayawan this coming August 15 (OPENING happened at People's Park, 5PM), we must also take pride of our tribal and ethnic roots. And to give thanks for a bountiful harvest. Indeed DAVAO LIFE IS HERE.

Starting tonight, August 3, 2016, vendors are not allowed to put their stalls to their designated places. No more street food and drinks, stalls selling shirts, souvenirs, the ukay-ukay and the massage therapist services. The area will be close unless the vendors will follow the rules.

Video here explaining WHY the CLOSURE



From the City Information Office:

Mayor Sara orders closure of 'night market'
Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio has ordered the closure of the popular night market along Roxas Boulevard, citing a number of violations committed by the vendors.
The order to shut down the street bazaar was upon the recommendation of City Traffic and Transport Management Office (CTTMO) Chief Rhodelio Poliquit.
Duterte said that the order will be implemented starting Thursday night, August 4. Around 700 vendors selling food, accessories, and ukay-ukay will be affected by the order.
"I have ordered the closure of the night market because of a number of violations and complaints," said the mayor in an interview Wednesday.
The vendors, she said, have been very defiant of the rules and regulations set by the city government.
The following are the issues and concerns she cited:
1. Vendors refuse to follow the one-family-one-stall rule
2. Vendors insist on their preferred locations
3. Presence of stalls that are run by financiers but managed by dummies
4. Vendors sub-leasing stalls to others
5. Vendors who claim they were able to buy or secure rights or permits over their preferred stalls, insisting on selling their products even if they are not included in official list of allowed sellers
Last year, the city earned P5.47 million in taxes from the nightly bazaar -- over a hundred percent increase from the P2.24 million figure in 2014. From January to March this year, the city has already earned around P1.75 million from the night market.
Mayor Sara said she will not reopen the night market -- even if the city is earning from it -- unless the vendors will follow the rules.
"The vendors must follow our rules. It is not the other way around. If they cannot follow the rules, I will never reopen the night market," she warned.
"Yes, the city is earning from it, but we cannot bend over backward and be soft on these vendors just because the city is earning from their activities. They need to follow the rules," she added. | CIO

Davao City to Host the Southeast Asian Games in 2019 #SeaGames #DavaoRegion #DavaoCity

- No comments
Cheering for another great news after Davao City Mayor Duterte become the first President of the Philippines coming from Mindanao, Davao City to host the 30th Southeast Asian Games in 2019.




With Brunei's withdrawal, the Philippines had expressed its interest to host the said events. In 2005, Philippine hosted the Games and emerged as the overall champion.

Last July 10, 2015, The Philippine Olympic Committee(POC) announced that the Manila will be hosting the Games. However in July 2016, following the proposal of the POC Chair Peping Cojuangco, it was changed from Manila to Davao City and later approved by President Rodrigo Duterte.

VENUE    


Aside from giving Davao a spotlight of this game as a host in sports they want also to give Davao as a general tourism destination, this would help boost tourism progress in the region.

Instead of building new facilities, the Philippine Sports Commission planned to use the existing sports facilities tapping the use of private facilities such as the Mall of Asia Arena in Pasay City and the Philippine Sports Stadium and Philippine Arena in Ciudad de Victoria, Bocaue. And Davao del Norte Sports Complex is among the prospect venues just in case Davao City falls short.

And as for this week, the team is now checking the first phase of Davao City Sports Complex located on a 20-hectare site of the University of the Philippines Mindanao campus and the 10-hectare sports-hub located inside the University of Mindanao and lastly the 70,000 seat King Dome built by the church of Pastor Apollo Quiboloy.

One of the most heartfelt, emotional, and powerful video made by Kuya Sahad Andal Jr. of CinEmotion Digital Films.

I usually don't leave comment in their videos posted in their page, especially every highlights of Mayor Duterte's campaigning days, but I just couldn't stop watching this video now, titled: "SALAMAT AMA" by CLIMAX. It resonated me and I hope it resonates with you too!

Were paying gratitude to our beloved Mayor and now President-Elect Rodrigo Roa Duterte for answering our CRY to run for PRESIDENT and for not giving up our dreams ----during our RUN DUTERTE RUN Campaign until now! It actually made for a pretty unique experience for all "DUTERTARDS" , because majority of the people came from out of town, and from all over the country just to support you all the way!
