David Haldane's "A Tooth in my Popsicle" launches this March 7

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 book will be launched on Tuesday March 7, 2023, 3PM at the Ortigas Foundation Library, 2F, McKinley Building (on top of Unimart), Greenhills Shopping Center.
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.

The 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.

David 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.

“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.”

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.
