Mindoro Palms Beach my Private Paradise Soon to Open for YOU!

Beach view of the Patio or I call it Porch area of our Main House. Finally looking all put-together. On the foreground is the spoiled brat hubby’s sailboat. I love the green camouflage cover of the house! Beachgoers are surprised to see a house in this spot. It’s funny when some German tourists come and sit on hubby’s boats and light a cigarette! Hubby goes batty!! 😉

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA Courtyard of the Main House. To the right is the main door (not showing), to the left is my Dirty Kitchen. Suited for all kinds of party preps!

Visit our Contact Us page for more information and call us for any questions.
Come one come all!
Make sure YOU attend the Opening, and especially the Closing Party!

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA This is the Divers Hut. I call it that because the long wide living room area flooring is done in bamboo slats and so it perfectly accommodates divers’ wet equipments. Full bathroom with hot shower.

pt.1 Retirement and Health Care: Comparative Emergency Room bill USA v. Philippines 5

Healthcare comparison- USA to Philippines. USA has excellent healthcare if only it stays that way AND is affordable. No more. The Philippines is emerging out of its shell in technology and medicine. Good thing as the Philippines becomes a haven for American and European tourists who then fall in love with the environment and decide to stay. One of the most important decisions these foreigners have to factor in is quality healthcare that’s affordable. In my personal experiences, Philippine medical is not bad at all.
Saint Luke Hospital is one I like very much. It is much cleaner than the one I had in California- I’m sorry to say that. Attention is immediate, at times in California you had to wait. Take notice of the amount for lab work: minimal USA= $445.00 + monthly. Comprehensive tests and lab work Philippines= $159.00 no monthly premium, no deductibles.
For exactly the same health problem in these two bills there just is no reason to pay so much! More…

Looking For a Few WW2 Heroes.. 3

The day for leaving draws near– by the end of October we will be leaving the US for the Philippines. For some reason I am sad about this… We will be gone for 1 year. Except for a month or so in May 2012 where I will be back Stateside to see my Son off to his deployment to Afghanistan, I will be gone for the year. We will not abrogate our responsibilities to our country– we will be back to VOTE!

This post is not starting right– I don’t know why but I’ll go on with it..

Most of YOU my Friends on Facebook know we are building a resort in the Island of Mindoro. There is an airport- the San Jose Airport, as it is now known, that serves commuters to the island from Manila and different points in the Philippines. What you may not know, and I did not know this either until my research and accidental click of a link, above, that San Jose Airport used to be “McGuire Airfield” used by the Army during World War 2. The name “McGuire” was in honor of ace fighter pilot of a P38L Lightning, Thomas McGuire. He was, according to Pacific Wrecks, KIA/MIA on January 7, 1945.

In a brief correspondence with the site Pacific Wrecks, I had been asked to provide updates or pictures of the airport as it is now, or any other pictures I may have of the island. I surmised from that, that some people are interested in how the Island look like now. It gave me an idea…

As a “THANK YOU”, I want to take this opportunity to offer the Veterans of the Units mentioned in the link- it’s a long list, to come back to the Island and check it out for themselves. Pictures I can submit no problem there, but I’d rather they take their own pictures, at a time when there is peace, when they might perchance enjoy the beauty, as compared to a time of danger of war. That serene environment which urged hubby and myself to decide to live there is owed to the sacrifices of the men and women of our US Military and their Philippine counterpart.

I am looking for the Military Veterans of WW11 who belong to the units in the link above. Please look it over and if you know of anyone who might have belonged to these units, or their families, please give them a link to this page. I would like to invite them to revisit the Philippines one more time, and to please allow me to express a sincere THANK YOU for your service. I have many other reasons, one of the most importance is the fact that I am an American today.

As an expression of that thanks, I would like to offer a free stay at our Resort for 1 week for two people, in which one or both belong to these Military Units, or the families of those Soldiers who were at one point or other, were stationed in Mindoro Island. I must apologize that at this time I am only able to offer the free stay and not the air fare itself. I wish I can.

As for dinners- well.. do you like Adobo? Do you like Lumpia? I make a MEAN ONE! You ain’t tasted it until you tasted mine no bs! 😉 Do you like Pancit? I can arrange all that. As my guest- you only need enjoy. At our Grand Opening “tentatively” set for June 30 – July 7th 2012, we will celebrate the Fourth of July Independence Day with fireworks and roast pig, commonly known in PI as “lechon” or “litson”. We can do it Hawaiian-style if that’s what you prefer. Be there!

A heartfelt invitation to join us- is extended to ALL Members of the Military, Active and Reserve. I would like nothing more than to party with you on Independence Day! My Navy Corpsman Son will not be there, so you come on his stead. That will bring a smile on his face!
