  • Philippine is now the 2nd Largest Exporter of Bananas in the world.
  • The majority of these shipments are destined for the growing regional markets of China, the Middle East and, to a lesser extent, Russia to satisfy their demand for fresh produce
  • Exports of Philippine bananas for the last quarter of this year are expected to rise following China’s lifting of restrictions on Philippine exports early this month.
  • Below are the 15 countries that accounted for the highest dollar value worth of bananas exported from the Philippines during 2015:
  1. Japan: US$176.9 million (40.2% of total bananas imports)

Concerted efforts over the past two decades to expand banana production have led to the commodity becoming the country’s most valuable crop as well as its most profitable agricultural export.
  • The past years, the yield dramatically been reduced due to destruction brought about by the strong typhoons that hit the country particularly the major producing areas in Mindanao. Another calamity was the most recent “El Nino.”  Nevertheless, these are not typical and Mindanao is not a typhoon belt.
  • Overall, the average annual growth rate was 0.26% and 16%, respectively for production and area for the six-year time period.
  • The farms are generally small in size (1-5 ha) with minimal care resulting to low yield.
  • Big farms are typically managed by Cooperatives, Organizations and Investment Companies

Art with a Heart

I admire how the new Philippine government strive to clean the mess of the past.  I believe people will admire them the most if they simultaneously allow Filipino culture be expressed again in landscapes, architecture, billboards, malls, movies, shopping, festivities, agriculture, manufacturing and so on and so forth.  This is the essence of People Power — and the people at this point only awaits to be empowered by their government.  If you can read between the lines, the silent majority and the new breed of Filipinos are just waiting to be utilized.

In the Philippines, preparation for the coming Christmas season is I think one of the best time to promote moral and cultural programs for national building. Filipinos start to observe as early as first day of September.  Filipinos calls it the “ber” months.  Unlike in other countries, Christmas carols are already played in the airwaves and that adds to the inspiration.  The mall owners knew how to exploit the emotion of the people so they go with the flow.  Hope our present leaders  will also use this opportunity to both motivate and mobilize many without spending much.  Filipinos themselves will surely contribute in the preparation and cultural propagation through utilization of arts, craftsmanship and voluntarism.  Below are some of the highly acclaimed Giant Christmas Lanterns showcase every December from Christmas Capital of the Philippines — Pampanga shown in my own art form:

Hope the government and private sector collaborate or individually sponsor those who can promote Filipino culture incorporate to Christmas spirit.  A single giant lantern on display alone can attract more tourist and provide income opportunity for small businesses.  How much more if a bigger place is decorated or transformed to a viewable display as what was done in the past at Policarpio Street in Mandaluyong City.  You need not consult a genius to figure this out.  Hope the Giant Christmas Lanterns be also displayed on major cities, streets, airports, terminals and places we all love them to be seen.  It need not be expensive.  Craftsmen and Artists only needs funder or supporter.

May the Filipino values and culture also complete in the billboard and public arena The public and private sectors should support.

Awesome Archipelago

If picture paints a thousand words, Philippines is beyond you can imagine…




These are just tip of the iceberg.  Visit Philippines and see to believe.

Philippines is so rich in tourist destination and natural resources.  Sad to say, its people only need capital support.  You may inquire at denissalvatierra2yahoo.com for details.

Singapore is Remarkable!

It’s been a long time since I visited Singapore but my photographs still has its life of its own till to this day.  One of my favorite place I visited is Republic Plaza  and/or the whole Raffles Place.  I could not forget when I personally enter the building and visited some of its high tech offices.  I am also marbled of its architecture… “an awesome tower of power.”  It was just one of the famous buildings in Singapore yet still is my favorite.  Top to bottom, I like it!  If given the chance and be invited by Republic Plaza management or by any of Singapore Tourism Agencies,  I will be more than glad to document its Singapore’s awesome sights and wonders through my widely read and viewed blogs.  Let me show you how I captured and framed some of Singapore’s best…

These are just some.  You ain’t seen nothin’ yet.

More to be posted soon!
