Relocating to the Philippines- Retirees or Workers Tips to Consider 2

Do you have what it takes to transplant yourself to a foreign culture that may be 180' different than your own? Would you like a higher quality of life with less buck?
How about HAVE MORE but just different? Be ready because that is what you're going to have here in the Philippines.
Leverage your Euro or USDollar in a $1.00 as to P43.00 currency exchange and live it up.
Medical needs cheaper and in some areas, better. The Philippines is not as backwards as you might think.
One thing you will notice right away is how young the labor force is. This country is being run by “young people.”
Experience the varied cultures brought here courtesy of those “perky immigrants”- Korean, Chinese, Japanese, USA, German, etc. The mixture turns this country into a dynamic oriental exotique! It is one great party place.
Bring your open mind, that "get up and adventure” attitude in your bones, and never look back! More…

Mindoro means “Mina de Oro”, Mine of Gold Reply

“Mina de Oro”.
Mindoro Island’s name meant “Mine of Gold”.

There are many resources abundantly found in Mindoro Island. One I like best is the natural still-virgin swatches of forest. I never thought for the name “Mindoro” to also be a literal meaning- mine of gold.

The latest find tho is Jade not gold. Until I attended an opening exhibit of
the Philippine Jade de Mindoro display and workshop would I have known there dis also jade here.

Made by domestic craftsmen, these gems are an early excavation, meaning barely tapping into the mine. I was told the jewellery quality get richer as the dig get deeper.

The owners are a friend of mine and they were kind enough to show me a room full. A room full of raw jade! I never imagined raw jade to be these huge chunks of rocks but here they are- chunks of rocks. They come in huge blocks, some weighing 70 kilos each. Bigger if it can be unloaded and transported through jungle by man.

Stay tuned for more pictures as the workers polish up their pieces.

For the Ladies; SHOPPING! Excellent Handicrafts and Nature’s art to appreciate. Reply

Above are a sample of Rocks I’ve collected. This one is called simply- “Green Heart” because of its shape. For this picture it was wet with water to show the strains and coloration. And yes, it is spoken for!

These are broken shells that closely resemble the finest art nature could produce.

Collecting shells and rocks is a great way to relax and meditate after work.

These beauties are going to be made into home decors, adornments, jewellery available for purchase in our Resort souvenir store.

These wooden flower vases came straight from the craftsman’s lathe. There has been no finishing applied to these samples. The colours you see are natural to this wood we call domestically as Kamagong tree. Not to be confused with mahogany, this is one of nature’s hardest woods excellent for carving because of its very desirable natural coloration..

Stay tuned as we post more items. We will be posting SHELLS to be sold “as is”- meaning raw, just as it was picked up off the shores so you can do with it what you want it to be.

Get some creative juices flowing!! Now.

Projects: Tourism Business & Ecological and Environmental Issues- Balance & Harmony 1

Environmentalists, Ecologists, and Businesses can and oftentimes do come together for common interest and good. Sniping and unconstructive critiques do not help anyone.. we in the Philippine Islands do need help and locally we are trying to rehabilitate an endangered coral population, protect exotic fishes, and retain flora underneath the waves.

Indifference from political leaders IS the single most deadly aspect of this preservation, more than a starving fisherman going out spear-fishing, or netting…

What’s back pack divers and dolphins have in common?

Plenty really.

The Dolphin Room is our modest priced accommodation available now. If you’re on a “back pack diver” budget but want all the comforts of a Western- style hotel room, this one’s for you.
This room is a bit smaller at 13 feet by 14 feet as compared to our Coach Room, but it has a large closet in it for all your diver luggages.

For a single person you will not want for material comforts in this room. It has all the amenities you want like hot water in a large shower room, Queen size imported mattress with ultra luxe cotton beddings. 

Who says ‘thrift’ and ‘bargain’ is synonymous with ‘poor?’ Definitely you are not. Feel like a King and sleep well- wake up around 5:00 am, open your drapery and look out the ocean.

Do you see “it?” Yeah- there are dolphin pods that come along this bay and get THIS up- close!

The Dolphin Room. You are richly deserving of all those extra pamperings we offer at the Resort, and your plushy accommodation at The Dolphin Room is not a King’s ransom but a bonus.

Hey, what else could you want? Please do tell us, we will get to it!

The Coach Room
How much- The Coach Room rate here

Continental Breakfast included daily for 2

So called because at the time I was putting away the keys I had it threaded on a Coach purse keychain. That pink leatherette label is easy mark even in the dark.
So there you have it! ;) No great secret.

But also that it is the kind of quality that the name evoked is the reason why I stayed with the name “Coach”. It denotes quality craftsmanship, high quality materials, REASONABLY PRICED! For the money you pay.

And to add- “Coach” is a noun which denotes ‘leader’, ‘teacher/ instructor’, guide.. ok feeble attempt. I’ll stay with the first explanation.

When I go on vacation, ‘shopping’ is my favourite activity and the ‘purses’ department is where I pay homage to first. Ok, laugh.

And Coach is almost always what I take home!

‘Almost always’ because I also have a ‘love’ for utilitarian-designed leather Italian purses.

So now you know my mindset. Hey, Woman is who makes Executive decisions around here, and it counts what’s important!

Now you know…
