In Hathaway's Flash Chapter 6: Landfall, the shuttle Haunsen is diverted from
its usual landing in Hong Kong to Davao, which coincidentally is where Kenneth
Sleig has been assigned.

In Chapter 8: Hotel, Hathaway Noah and Gigi Andalusia take up residence on the
36th floor of the 43-story Tasaday Hotel in Davao.

In Chapter 15: Circe Hunt, Hathaway gets a permit for a shopping trip in
Mindanao.
