LEGAZPI CITY- A waterfront lifestyle mall in this city has added another attraction seen to allure Legazpeno and visitors alike with the opening of a night market.
LEGAZPI CITY– Not too long after the opening of the night market, Embarcadero de Legazpi has also opened the Duty Free Philippines (DFP) Legazpi branch last Sunday, November 25.


Chester Celso Olitin of the waterfront mall’s Leasing Department said Embarcadero de Legazpi has since Friday last week opened the night market with an exciting combination of a wide range of products and a sense of community that awaits the consumers.
Recognized by the Department of Tourism (DOT) under Executive Order No. 46, the Duty Free Philippines is a corporation established to maneuver the duty-and tax-free merchandising system in the Philippines.


The the idea of putting up a night market in in Embarcadero de Legazpi, came from the idea of flourishing night market phenomenon in Metro Manila and across the country. Open-air night markets are also very popular across Asia Countries like Hong Kong, China, Thailand, Singapore and South Korea.
Its program is responsible in enhancing service facilities for tourists while exercising foreign exchange and regulating revenue for the government.


Embarcadero de Legazpi, according to Olitin, has adopted this concept suitable to the demands of the Albayanos.
Duty Free Philippines’ mission is to satisfy the shopping needs of the international travelers in an efficient service environment while showcasing the Filipino traits of warmth and hospitality.


Olitin also cited that people should check out the Embarcadero de Legazpi Night Market as it showcases yummy treats – good and affordable food are available and everyone can enjoy a variety.
As a world-class travel retailer,it also carries out the task of building a stable and responsive company which enhances its employees’ professional growth and well being and supports the development of the country’s tourism industry.


One may also indulge into pricey goodies – people who are low in the budget and even those who would want to save a little money need not to worry for clothes, fashion accessories, pillows, trinkets, art, and other bazaar items are sold at very affordable prices.
Imported and labelled fragrances, chocolates, confectioneries, liquor, designer bags, trendy apparels, and even gadgets not found in other malls and department stores in this city await the chic, international shoppers.


The concept also promotes a sense of community – an informal crowded setup and the fact that some of the owners personally staff the stalls themselves to enthusiastically explain their products to their customers engenders a sense of community that cannot be seen in other markets.
The products are all sold in US currency; but Philippine Peso holders can adjust their money with the price of the product in the shop’s standard currency.


Anyone can take a break from shopping in the waterfront mall or a long jog from Puro to eat some potato chips and cool down with a sip of fresh buko shake while meeting new friends and enjoying the live band music.
“Though it still has limited products compared to other Duty Free Philippines branches in the country, almost all the quality products which can be found in some branches are also here in the Legazpi branch,” said Estrella Monserate, a repatriate and Overseas Filipino Worker in Dubai.


The opening of the night market was highlighted with a blessing of the location, followed by a fireworks display and the trademark Batucada Show [a style of Brazillian music performed by a group or ensemble of percussion which is influenced by African culture (yahoo.com)] of Embarcadero de Legazpi.
“The November 25 event was only a partial opening. The grand opening will be on December,” explained Chester Celso Olitin of Embarcadero de Legazpi’s Leasing Department.


“Embarcadero de Legazpi is basically a night mall and people flock over to it during the night so it is very suitable to have a night market open here,” he added.
Certainly, Bicolanos will be looking forward to this especially that this is the first branch of the said shop in the region.


The Embarcadero de Legazpi Night Market is the first night market in this city.
“For a more unique shopping experience, I am inviting everyone to visit Duty Free Legazpi in Embarcadero de Legazpi. Invite your family, friends, and loved ones to shop in our newest member of the Embarcadero de Legazpi family, Duty Free Legazpi.said Olitin.
 
“Legazpeños, tourists, shoppers and all are gladly invited to visit Embarcadero de Legazpi’s Night Market. Affordable items can be bought at affor`dable prices. Everyone is welcome to party with us and shop at our Night Market, the first one in Legazpi City,” Olitin said.

Wars of ancient history were about possessions, territory, power, control, family, betrayal, lover's quarrel, politics and sometimes religion.

But we are in the Modern era and supposedly more educated and enlightened .

Think about this. Don't just brush off these questions.

  • Why is RELIGION still involved in WARS? Isn't religion supposed to be about PEACE?
  • Ask yourself; What religion always campaign to have its religious laws be accepted as government laws, always involved in wars and consistently causing WARS, yet insists that it's a religion of peace?

WHY??

There are only two kinds of people who teach tolerance:
  1. The Bullies. They want you to tolerate them so they can continue to maliciously deprive you. Do not believe these bullies teaching tolerance, saying that it’s the path to prevent hatred and prejudice.
  2. The victims who are waiting for the right moment to retaliate. They can’t win yet, so they tolerate.

History of Albay, Philippines

Article below was taken verbatim from: www.census.gov.ph

Albay and its surrounding areas were known as Ibalon when Juan de Salcedo and 120 soldiers explored it in 1573. Sawangan, a small settlement by a mangrove swamp, became a town called Albaybay (meaning "by the bay") in 1616. The town was first renamed Albay, then LEgaspi, as Albay went on to refer to the province.

In 1846, Masbate , Ticao and Burias were seperated from albay to form the comandancia of Masabate. Albay was then divided into four districts: Iraya, Cordillera or Tobaco, Sorsogon and Catduanes. In 1894, Sorosogon became a seperate province and Catanduanes followed suit in 1945. The province of Albay itself was created on March 10, 1917 .

Its colorful history includes both natural and man-made disasters. In 1649, the natives rebelled against their recruuitmenst to Cavite to build galleons. In 1814, Mayon Volcano erupted, killing 1200 people and burying the town of Cagsawa . During the early 19th century, hemp for shipping rope became an international source of wealth. Albay prospered greatly until the demand for hemp fell sharply.

People of Albay, Philippines

The Bicol dialect spoken in Legaspi is the common tongue used, but there are variations in tone and meanings of words as one goes farther away from the city. However, the people also speak Tagalog fluently.

Natural Resources of Albay, Philippines

Protect the environment

It is sad but true that as of the year 2012 the rivers of the Philippines continue to be the #1 Sewer Systems of the Philippines.

Protect & Save the Rivers. Do not let your sewer drain into the river. Your community can be the first to initiate this project.
Build your riverbank protection with a built-in gutter system. Reforest within Ten Years - Guaranteed!


Let us plant more trees in every barangay in the entire Philippines. It does not make any difference if the barangay is urban, partially urban or rural; we need more trees. Trees will prevent erosion, provide oxygen, prevent green house effect, and even a place of business for the shade tree mechanic.

The Philippines is a tropical country and practically anything will grow. The DENR has the planting trees project that goes on every year. Lots of picture taking for the media. Planting trees one by one is the "human" way of doing it. This individual planting of trees is good if done to "line" the roads and highways with trees or along fences or property divisions, or if you have a plantation.

To reforest the nation of the Philippines we have to plant trees the "mother nature" way. Sow the seeds during the rainy season. Go deep into "bald" forests and plant trees by sowing seeds. If there's not enough volunteers to do this, use the military helicopters to fly over the designated areas and sow the seeds.

Guaranteed within a few years, The Philippines will be lush again. >>Read More


We are using our rivers as our sewer system. If you ask a Filipino, "Are the Filipinos a clean people?" The answer is an automatic, "Yes!". However, the Filipinos are suffering from the same disease or attitude as most people do, and that is the "NIMBY" disease or "NIMBY" attitude. (NIMBY) Not In My Back Yard. So it is OK to dump my garbage and sewer there. Not mine! Someone else will take care of it.

This attitude is killing our rivers. Your great-grandparents, grandparents or parents were once proud to tell the stories of how they enjoyed swimming in the river behind your house or nearby. However, you can't say the same or tell the same stories to your kids or grand kids. Why? Because your generation is killing the river.

Instead of relying too much on Diesel fuel and Coal to generate the majority of Philippine's Electrical energy Supply, we can concentrate more on renewable and sustainable source of energy such as: Hydro Power, Solar Power, and Wind Power and thermal energy conversion. We have too many black outs.
