I very much appreciate my articles and photos appearing on fellow bloggers' sites, popular broadsheets, and local broadcast news segments, but I would appreciate even more a request for permission first.
Thank you!

Wow, what a great place!! I just checked the link and I'm sold. Its definitely something different from the usual hangout at Puerto Galera. Its so crowded already at White Beach.

Love your choice soundtrack. Idagdag mo na ang Waiting In Vain ni Bob Marley/Lee Ritenour tsaka yung Dessert Rose ni Sting. O di ba perfect na :)

Btw, I have a new URL already. I'm at

Hey!! Nagulat ako dito sa post mo, Eric! I know that place ;-D! Thanks a lot for posting it!

I like your shot of the those orchids too! Quite dramatic!

And well, you gave me a nice challenge to shop for those jazz selections! I like most of the artists and some I still have to check out. Way to go!

Just corrected my list to reflect your new home URL, Cookie.

Yes those would make a fine addition the soundtrack for this soothing experience.

One day I will get to enjoy this retreat. Please share your experience with us, Cookie, if ever you get a chance to visit View Point House.

Not to worry, Bernadette, I'll bring my iPod with me when I visit View Point House :)

The orchid was taken at Rizal Park's Orchidarium.
