Planning to Retire Soon!
If you are planning to retire in the Philippines soon, I suggest you visit several excellent websites on pro's and cons of retiring in the Philippines. However if you want to retire in the provinces, where life is simple, standard of living cheaper, less traffic congestion and pollution, availability of fresh seafood and vegetables compared to the big cities, my island province is the place for you! If this is your first time in my site, welcome. Please do not forget to read the latest national and international news in the right side bar of this blog. Some of the photos and videos on this site, I do not own. However, I have no intention on the infringement of your copyrights.

Balanacan Convention Center, Mogpog
A new resort and convention center is now open in Balanacan, Mogpog. It is located 1 KM east of downtown Balanacan. It is owned and operated by Frank and Flor Irlandez. The Irlandezes were my classmates in college and graduate school. Both Frank and Flor are from Batangas, but Frank fell in love with Marinduque ( particularly the Balanacan Cove area) when he visited the province about 4 years ago.
Construction of this convention center started about two years ago. It has magnificent and mesmerizing views of the cove. It has limited rooms for overnight stay or longer. There is dancing with a live band on Wednesday and Friday nights from 8 to 11PM. The entrance fee is 100 pesos per person. For additional information, call 0920 268 8953.
Thank you Frank and Joy for the lunch yesterday and showing us your beautiful resort.
