Taal Lake ViewI happened to pass by this low profile Bakery in Tagaytay City Philippines so many times in the past but I never bother to even enter.   One day, my wife’s Doctor requested that we brought her one of the special biscuits from this bakery upon our return.   Since then, I drop by frequently not just for my wife’s Doctor but to buy also the bread I like.  IMG_20150614_160733IMG_20150614_160836IMG_20150614_160801IMG_20150614_160927This small store basically offer a number of different items other than bread and pastry.  I noticed yesterday that it even sell roasted coffee beans (liberica variety and other blends). IMG_20150614_160718 IMG_20150614_160721 IMG_20150614_160725There are so many types of offered breads, cakes and pastries, roasted coffee beans, snacks, drinks and whole lot more.  I believed, the mostly bought is the “Jacobina” (small biscuit type better eaten while drinking coffee during snack or breakfast.

Be Sure Before you Buy a Property

Cover for Blog2

Experience really is the best teacher but there is no substitute to counter checking, especially before buying a property.  Scam victims are always those who don’t check and and over trust.

Last week I assisted a buyer.  I know that my client knew that Tips are readily available in the internet.  But instead of just providing procedural theories, I offered my personal services by way of counter checking every detailed of the property being offered to her.  I did not just rely on computer, rather I did actual site visit, field research, documentation and the most important, I requested for the verification direct from the government agencies governing realty estate where it is located.

There are critical steps and actions I personally include on my checklist of actions to undertake.  It start with the basic information and detailed gathering of information.  It became very useful as I documented all that is necessary including images, tips, procedure and after sales requirement.  As a result, my efforts provided the needed assistance to my client.  As such, it saves time, money and energy.  I can offer my services to others who are planning to acquire a property.

Profitable Feasibility Study

My latest work:  Feasibility Study re Cavendish Banana Production with Post Harvest Facility

Feasibility Study Cavendish Banana - Cover Feasibility Study Cavendish Banana - page 2

I am willing to offer a copy to interested Agri Investor/s and other Foreigners who wish to do business in the Philippines.

Quote from Voice of America article:

The Philippines may surpass China to be Asia’s fastest growing economy this year, but its bigger challenge is working out how to sustain and share the gains of the past five years to secure longer-term prosperity.

Since President Benigno Aquino came to power in 2010 and embarked on a reform and governance push, the Philippines has become a hot investment favorite and one of the fastest-growing economies in the world.

Investors now want to know how the Southeast Asian country will be able to sustain fiscal and economic policies that have spurred growth and reduced poverty after Aquino’s term ends next year.

“We think that 2016 is critical in terms of the long-term outlook of the Philippines,” said Eugenia Victorino at ANZ bank.

The Philippines defied the region’s slowdown in the fourth quarter by regaining momentum, bringing full-year growth to 6.1 percent – the fastest expansion in Asia after China.

This year, Aquino is aiming for growth of 7-8 percent, while China’s growth is expected to slow to around 7 percent.

Yummy Pancit Malabon

Pancit Malabon3

Who would have thought that “Pancit Malabon” would capture hearts and minds of Filipinos and has gone a long way and soar far greater heights.  Like chicken-pork adobo and other known Philippine cuisine, you can see this noodle dish from Filipino gatherings not just in the Philippines but across the globe.  Where there is a Filipino abroad (overseas Filipino worker/migrants), there is “Pancit Malabon or Pancit Palabok (variation).

The ingredients are simply fat rice noodles, squid, oysters, smoked fish flakes, pork cracklets, shrimps, special sauce, chicharon flakes and duck/chicken eggs laid over.

It obviously originated in the town then Tambobong Malabon Philippines (now divided into two Original eaterymunicipalities, Navotas and Malabon).  It is actually common then since the 1880s and the locals called it “pancit bame.” However, it was only at the onset of 1900’s that Manileños (primarily celebrities) discovered this authentic dish noodle variety when dropping by for food to and from location shootings. They called it “Pancit Malabon” referring to the (only) place where it is found.

The dry firm fat white noodles were made of 70% rice and 30% flour.  Historically, this type of noodles were manufactured then in a particular Bulacan factory (Philippines) till to this day.  The noodles where delivered to small eating sheds on the shoreline where travelers, mostly, buyers and sellers on their way to the market, wait for small boats that transport them.

The pondahan of Caligays developed into a famous and growing chain of restaurants.  The nine enterprising sons and daughters of Pedro and Leonora who took it to themselves to manage the branches.

The Caligay eatery was established in 1911, was in brisk business until a few years after Second World War. It was only closed when no more Caligay clan member was enthusiastic to continue the endeavor.  The Caligay thought that was the end of their “pancit bame” business.

But in 1965, Impong Inay’s grandchildren and now her great-grand children revived the old business this time in the far municipality of Marikina. Before 1965, this family was involved in fishing and patis making. No one ever thought of establishing eateries until Jose saw the potential of the residents in shoemaking, which was then an infant industry (the eldest, who became a monsignor and parish priest of Marikina). Rosa and cousin saw the need for a food booth. They established a food corner, sold “pancit bame” and thereby introduced the townspeople to the dish they started to call “Pancit ng taga Malabon.” After the fair, the residents loved the special noodle dish so much that they ordered from Rosa and cousin for special gatherings (Rosa, the only girl and foundress of Pancit ng taga Malabon chain of restaurants). Because of the food response from the people and the numerous orders, Rosa decided to open a small restaurant along the parish (side) church. Take home food were placed in native bilao of varying sizes.

As years goes by, they innovate both the ingredients and packaging.  Times change but the tradition continues.

From 1966, when the first restaurant “Pancit ng taga Malabon” was opened, several branches were developed one after the other. The first branch along Aurora Boulevard corner Harvard Street came two years later in 1968.  At present, they have seven (7) branches and many copied their recipe and put up their own restaurants and eateries offering this specialty dish.
