Davao Philippines’Cavendish Bananas is known deliciously sweet.

  • 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)
  2. China: $109.2 million (24.8%)
  3. South Korea: $51.6 million (11.7%)
  4. Iran: $33.8 million (7.7%)
  5. United Arab Emirates: $19.2 million (4.4%)
  6. Saudi Arabia: $12.9 million (2.9%)
  7. Kuwait: $8.7 million (2%)
  8. New Zealand: $6.5 million (1.5%)
  9. Hong Kong: $5.2 million (1.2%)
  10. Singapore: $5.1 million (1.2%)

  • Among the above countries, the fastest-growing consumers of Philippine bananas exports since 2011 were: Bahrain (up 822.2% in value), Saudi Arabia (up 638.1%), Malaysia (up 312.3%) and Kuwait (up 195.4%).Production system ranges from backyard to highly integrated operation with the latter catering to the export market.
  • Weak demand in the EU.
  • Total import of fruit by the Philippines from 2008 till 2013. The highest volume of imports occurred in 2012 reaching 240,477MT while the lowest was in 2008 to 187,265MT. The average annual growth rate was 3.68% during this time period.
  • Philippine farms produced a total of 8.65m tonnes of bananas valued at P117.15bn ($2.6bn) in 2013, down from a peak of 9.23m tonnes worth P108.13bn ($2.4bn) the previous year, according to PSA data. 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

Getting Ready for Christmas!

      Christmas season is something many of us are anticipating.   In a number of countries, the yuletide season starts as early as September 1. To make the most of the season, it is better to  plan ahead and be ready.   One need not be a guru in concepts and designs.   Those  who need ideas, I think I can help through my compilation I am making of inspiring references for home and business use.   This is my most recent project for the benefit of Cancer patients I and my wife are trying to help.   Below are my earlier works:

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.

True Christmas Date

Basing from Biblical naration of the travel of Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem, the first Christmas or the birth of Jesus Christ obviously could not happen during the winter season or on December.  The couple surely won’t survive the cold wheather if they travelled on the period.  Bible Scholars believed it happened during spring season.  

There were even other dates for other types of believers as in Russia – January 6.  

Historical reference in the declaration of December 25 as birth of Christ is to be found in the Chronography of 354, an illuminated manuscript compiled in Rome in 354.  Early Christians celebrated Christmas every January 6, although this festival emphasized celebration of the baptism of Jesus.  Deeper study shows that Christmas was actually a politcal moved with a purpose during Constantinople’s reign in 379 and to Antioch in about 380.  It was promoted in the Christian East as part of the revival of Catholicism following the death of the pro-Arian Emperor Valens at the Battle of Adrianople in 378. The feast disappeared after Gregory of Nazianzus resigned as bishop in 381, although it was reintroduced by John Chrysostom in about 400.  Part reference to this information is Wikipedia. 

The date of birth of Christ is no longer that important as the Bible is more focus on the meaning of Christmas.  Although, I cannot deny that still there are concervatives on this issue.  What is more important to many is Christ is being known and preached in God’ suttle way, even to the nations who don’t believe in God and the Bible is not permitted.

May you share your blessing this Christmas!

To many, Christmas is shopping or homecoming or merry making.

I see no wrong in it if you want to enjoy your holidays! Why not? Go ahead!  But may you also share your blessing, especially to the less fortunate kids as seen in the video.

A little act of kindness can transform children’s lives.  Kindly support me as I reach them.

Blogging and Commodity Trading are what I do for my self, but organizing projects for the less fortunates is how I give back. I am in support of the kids and youth since 1996.

You can send you donations either through parcel (for food or in kind) or through Paypal and Western Money Union if in a form of money.  Proof of gift to the less fortunate will be given.  A donation of $1 is already equivalent to a 1 kg rice with canned sardines (good for 1 day for 1 small family).   

PayPal 

Or you can tell me where would you want it be used (e.g. education, toys, etc.) 

But if more donations are gathered, I may use it to establish a formal community service center where we can host projects for development, livelihood, children/elderly care, etc. for long term benefits. 

I my self is donating and in coordination with local churches and NGO. 

If you prefer to donate in kind, you may send it through FedEx, DHL, or the like at…

Thank you very much and Merry Christmas to you!

I am actually in support of the kids, youth, the elderly and community service since 1991 as per below photos. 

The most recent I facilitated were donations of umbrellas, grocery items for the Pastors and Elderly workers, and funding for the improvement of Children’s Church c/o In Christ We Live Family Christian Center (small church in the Philippines — within Talipapa Novaliches municipality).

My previous initiated projects in support of the community and less fortunate:

Former Youth 

Above photo are the youth and teens I previously supported (I’m in the middle).

Most of them became professionals and are now young adults.

They followed me since their elementary years and they continued up to now. 

Some of them are the kids I used to motivate per below photo.

Many continued what I started but still doing what I do best – support the community and the less fortunate within my reach.

There’s more but all are too many to show.
