There is great opportunity  to be had in Mindoro Island for the resourceful individual or company. 

 

 

 

A- For Americans- earn $98K tax-free on your Individual Returns tax. Take advantage of this opportunity.

B- The ASEAN Nations have integrated- Asia continent plus EU, joined by the USA and Australia. What this integration means is open trading with member countries are quota-free tariff-free.

C- Mindoro Island is all-open frontier waiting to be developed. This aspect is the most valuable treasure to an entrepreneur. The ability to be able to get in on the ground at development phase is priceless entrepreneurial opportunity.
Think of a business that a developing island in the Pacific need and it is waiting.
Tourism, Food retail, Truck stops with Shopping centers, Transportations, Fishing fleets, Mining- nickel, gold and jade, more.

D- A doorway is open into China’s huge economic market.
The ASEAN unification just opened up liberally this giant economic powerhouse in Asia. So many possibilities just on this one topic alone.

E- International realities- the Philippines is considered by many economic experts as an “emerging market.”
Mindoro Island is 45 minutes away from Manila, the international hub.
Manila is getting crowded.

Mindoro Island offers a relaxed atmosphere and an opportunity for business. The entrepreneur who realizes this will hit pay gold.

 

For a good reference and starting point- The Heritage Foundation on the Philippines

INDIVIDUALS, CORPORATION PARTNERSHIPS

Objectives and Purposes:

1- Wealth creation for the Individual or corporation. It is open frontier in real estate in an ecologically green pristine environment

2- The USA Dollar at its highest exchange rate ever v. the Philippine Peso

 

MISSION:

1- To build an American, or Foreign community in the Island of Mindoro Occidental, that

2- Preserve assets in one’s own country [ie: America, EU, UK] by utilizing the strength of said currencies [USDollar, Euro, Pound Sterling] against a weaker currency, the Philippine pesos in an exchange which is at the present the highest ever, and

3- shelter $98,000 of your personal income tax-free in the USA (this amount is probably higher now)

3- To make possible a retirement lifestyle that is well affordable even by the socio-middle class incomes

4- To take advantage of other opportunities in gas and fossil fuel exploration, Tourism, Food Production and distribution- for the most prt Mindoro Island is still agricultural

5- To take advantage of “fire sales” of large swatches of government tracks of real estate readily available from native stake holders- those who are living in the track but without titles to these real estates.

There will come a time when most all of these tracks will be gobbled up by big Filipino conglomerates.

6- To take advantage of ample space, clean living, cheap labor with the vicinity of the big city Manila 40 minutes only by commuter plane, or the burgeoning Batangas City 3 hours by ferry.

7- Lastly but perhaps the most important- bring hope and life to this corner of the world.
a- The local population is in dire need of jobs.
b- The Indigenous Peoples (IPs are a government-protected Native Tribes for their cultural values) need help in the education of their young for their own survival. IPs have a tender place in my heart and I want to bring them hope.

My own personal mission is to uplift them by showing what they can do themselves.
Let’s join hands with them in propagating their culture that asks for education for its survival, yet also tenaciously cling to the cultural heritage handed to them by their ancestors.
Let’s give a heart!💗

Photography Tourism On-Ground In The Tropics Reply

One of the areas of Tourism most neglected because it is readily available is Photography. Photography Tourism is taken for granted as a profession and very few seek out locations to shoot to make money on.

Surely, tropical underwater world accessible only to scuba divers is one of those magnificent shoots.

As for amateur home-grown iPad only camera users which is yours truly all I could manage to take pictures of are sunsets mostly. Oh well..

With these first two shots I thought it was an “ordinary sunset”.

Then I thought the blues were nice…

Just when I thought it’s an ordinary sunset it bursted out colours and showed me!

Never take for granted Nature’s Beauty as it unfold in front of you.
Sunsets are a very true individualist nature; no two ever are alike.
One scene will play out once in a lifetime; this is why I watch out for it every day!

Golden Sunset Mother Nature’s Continuing Gift of Natural Beauty Reply

Golden Sunset shots on a typical day at The Palms Resort Mindoro in mid-June. The images were taken with an iPad Gen 5.

Most of the shots were taken from the porch of the Main House.

The identification numbers denote the series of shots.
The letter “A” mean the image was edited using the “Enhanced” feature of the iPad.
The letter “B” mean the original unedited shoot done right after, without any cropping or any other editing.

Why I used the term “mid-June” is because around this time the monsoon season starts to set. The presence of clouds filled with moisture give off a beautiful refraction and reflection on the seas below.

I want to invite you to enjoy this photographic gold mine which is almost guaranteed to play out for your enjoyment and satisfaction.

Oh yes, don’t forget to bring a camera!😃

Thank you.

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.

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…

The Coach Room
How much- The Coach Room rate here

Now the Coach Room has 2 beds
1 King size
1 Queen size. Save even more and split this cost up with somebody in your group
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. Of course.

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…

Outrigger Tourister and Liveaboard Cruiser at Your Service in the FUN Dept! Reply

We are looking for adventurous souls to go on our maiden voyage of the 4-ton boat you see below. The smaller watercraft will escort her.

She’s in final preps for a motor then a cabin for live aboards, then final paint.

Itinerary is The Palms Resorts- Pandan Island- Coron Bay- Puerto Princesa- then back. The voyage will take about 2 weeks. We will  be crossing the South Philippine Sea formerly known as the South China Sea.

Out on the horizon is the Mindoro Strait shipping lane which also used to be the Japanese Armada choice of waterway when they sailed off to Leyte Gulf to play cat-and-mouse with the Pacific Fleet of General Douglas McArthur during WW11.

Coron Bay is the graveyard of 3 Japanese warships and is now a top destination for hotshot wreck divers. I want to see the much-heard-of beauty of Coron Bay Lagoon where these ships lie.

This boat is Mindoro Palms #3. She’s going to be a 4-ton outrigger cruiser when we’re done with her. She’d shed off her old skin and put on a new one.

IMG_2220 We totally gutted her, made the top wider to accommodate more load. We also made the outriggers longer and more floats to compensate. Soon we will be putting in a new R4 engine.

IMG_2208 We have an excellent boat maker in our neck of the woods. This boat was scraggly and ugly when we got it. After about a month of work, lots of hardwood, lots of marine epoxy glue and paint and soon a new engine, she’d turned into a beauty.

IMG_2206This one is Mindoro Palms #1.

Yes it does take these many people to beach this baby. Altho the new weight is 1/3 more than the old shell now she is more buoyant, carries more passengers with ease up to 10 people with no problem.

IMG_2214 She’s fast too hence the “Tourister” designation.

Here the Capt. inspects for algae and eagle’s claw, a kind of shellfish that attaches itself to the submerged part and eats up your boat. We don’t want that.

Any takers on the cruise let us know here.

I can’t wait!! I DOUBLE-DARE YOU to come with me!! Dramamine’s ready. 😉
