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.

Sad News for the Economy and Tourism in Marinduque
The other day, I heard the bad news that Zest Air is trimming their daily service from Manila to Marinduque and back after October 28. At first I thought that by trimming, Zest Air will still revert back to their older schedule of every other day. However, today a FaceBook friend in the Marinduque Tourism business confirmed that the word trimming really meant stopping and not reducing their schedule flights. What a sad, sad and depressing news to Marinduque and its tourism business.
Is there a way that the Provincial government and its officials, as well as the office of the Congressman and of course the newly formed Marinduque Tourism Council paved the way and helped encourage other airlines to serve Marinduque? To encourage other airlines ( Air Philippines, Cebu Pacific, SEAIR and PAL) to serve Marinduque, a high priority of fixing the airport is needed immediately. I do not want to see Marinduque go back to the dark ages.
To all my Kababayans all over the world and particularly the members and officers of the newly formed Marinduque Tourism Council, let us joined hands in solving this depressing event in the history of modern Marinduque -the province known over the world as the Heart of the Philippines
Let your voices be heard so that our Provincial Officials( Governor and Congressman) place a high priority fixing Masiga Airport immediately. In doing so, it will encourage other airlines to serve Marinduque. Zest Air last flight is scheduled for October, 27, 2012. Any comments on this posting will be appreciated.
