I am Planting for the Economy of the Philippines – "Para sa Ekonomiya"

Here in the Philippines, I believe some Filipinos are quite familiar with the phrase “Para sa ekonomiya” (for the economy). We used to say “Ginagawa ko ito para sa ekonomiya” (I’m doing this for the economy). That funny tone of saying it but somehow with sincerity in the mind, that’s what made this tagline popular for quite some time. Okay, I guess you know who started this craze (Google it).



Now, let me state my version of saying it, with this simple story I want to share with you.

Around February of this year (2017), we asked the permission of our neighbor if we can plant on her front yard. This neighbor of ours and a close friend of my wife as well is now living in the United States and since her departure about 2 years ago, her front lot is becoming crowded with weeds and grasses.

A Time to Unwind for Filipinos Like Us at Sky Ranch, Tagaytay - Part 1

Of all the hardships and sacrifices Filipinos are facing each day, probably the always-sought-after remedy of most Filipinos is to unwind, relax, take a break from somewhere far from office or workplace. Yes, we Filipinos get tired too - despite of our courage and enthusiasm to work harder for our ourselves and our families. You would not believe that by simply going to the malls (like SM), Filipino moms and dads, tatay and inay, ate and kuya, are already finding ways to release the stress gained from a long week of work. And for those who have saved some, going a little bit farther from home completes their entire weekend with re-energized body and soul.


Welcome to SKY RANCH - TAGAYTAY

Well, my wife and I are not an exemption. Like the typical Filipinos, we go outside to blend or join with others on their weekend escapades, when time and budget allows.
