The winds of change- how adept are we in swaying with it so as not to break?
When I first built this resort the objective was business.
After “what happened”, I needed to re-evaluate my priorities. For right now, it’s “we will see…”
Everything you see in this Resort is the brain thrust of this one crazy woman
A dual citizen of the USA and Philippines, Yes I am that crazy woman.
My being an American I will never trade for the world. USA is the best country to be a citizen of. Pride. Loyalty. Patriot Forever.
At the present, my endeavours bring me to the Philippines.
This is one of my passions- adventure. To travel the Unknown Path. To find that pot of gold at the ends of rainbows!
🌹The Story- How on Earth..?!
The Resort was a challenge which became a dream and now an objective. It is in response to “what now…”
Sometimes the circumstances choose you not the other way around. This was a dare by circumstances. I can adapt beautifully, or break. That simple.
The challenge and the expected result exhilarates. That feeling is what makes this *unknown all worth it.
The Freedom I feel in executing everything according to ME and no one else, if I say it makes me happy is inadequate & an understatement. How do you explain ‘Freedom’?
I bought the property and started construction in 2010. I’ve put in electricity from a mile away, dug a deep well for water, constructed a bridge over marshland 😓😓. NO heavy equipment except the trucks that supplied gravel, sand and cement, a Main House, a luxury two-level 3-bedroom Mediterranean-inspired Luxury Guest House, Staff Housing, Public Accommodations Room complete with tile artwork from my construction crew. Never knew they were this resourcefully talented!
I knew NOTHING about construction let alone developing a resort
My experience is in Fashions
I’ve been a merchandiser, a fashion consultant, an owner of a tailor/ dressmaking shop. I import-exported fashions in the category “Gray Market”. If you knew what that meant legally you wouldn’t dare! Ask me what the government code is for any textile or ready-to-wear fashion classification, I will tell you based on the fiber content of the fabric from a 14-inch thick import guidebook, but never ask me anything about construction.
Never had ANY!
Well now. Here is that opportunity to be a brand new thing.
An opportunity for a life’s dream. This Venture is not by a company. It is by a crazy individual’s foray into the unknown. This might be the biggest and grandest venture dropped on my lap so far which revs up my imagination so am not yet putting a period on Life. 😃 As long as the imagination goes, I go!
Bridging two cultures, American and Asiatic-Philippines IS exciting challenge
Drop off the edge of Earth, fall off civilization for LIFE! Does anyone dare?
No phones ringing although there is internet now. No traffic noise. Instead-
lush green surroundings, outrigger boats, endless water, daily bright sun, and on monsoon seasons- the rainy days which mean *typhoons.
One might call this rainy Monsoon Season the AUTUMN of the TROPICS.
Below- a view of the full sunset as the sun sinks into liquid horizon. Blazing colors Nature blesses me daily.
A fisher boat appears as if an apparition, gliding by on seamless blend of clouds and calm waters. It is subtle distinction that separates heaven and earth.
At the end of the day- peace and quiet.
