David Haldane Launches “A Tooth in My Popsicle” at the Ortigas Foundation Library

David Haldane Launches “A Tooth in My Popsicle” at the Ortigas Foundation Library

How do you feel about this story?


What started as a story of desperation turned into a beautiful transformation.

Mindanao Gold Star Daily columnist David Haldane shares his adventures as he uproots himself and his wife, Ivy, to the magical Philippine Island of Siargao in a new book entitled A Tooth in My Popsicle.

The story recalls Haldane’s journey leaving his life in Los Angeles, California, to move

to his wife’s hometown on the famous but oh-so-foreign island paradise. This book is a compilation of essays about his experience from first inviting his now-wife to America for a new life to the beauty of hope with two young children.

“I wrote this book to tell the story of a transformative adventure, sometimes frightening, often frustrating, occasionally hilarious, but always, I hope, entertaining,” Haldane explained.

“I hope A Tooth in My Popsicle motivates other dreamers to pursue what their hearts truly desire.”

Haldane is a former Los Angeles Times staff writer with over twenty years of experience at that publication. His two previous books are the award-winning memoir, Nazis & Nudists, and a short-story collection called Jenny on the Street.

When David’s not writing books, he produces a weekly newspaper column called “Expat Eye,” for one of Mindanao’s premiere news outlets, The Mindanao Gold Star Daily.

Join us March 7–3 pm for some food, readings, discussions, and fun.

Venue: Ortigas Foundation Library located at 2/F McKinley building (on top of Unimart), Greenhills shopping center.
