This is your property ?
It has big Balcon in front, 2 Sleeping Rooms, Living room and Kitchen together in a big room. Shower room separated with Comfort Room. House located inside a place where Philippines Folks live. But, they are nice and respectful. Living here in this Bungalow will mean having contact with the Folks in our Barrio and see their ways of Life. Waterpump inside our yard. My parents house is 1 km. away from here. I am also stranger here, but, I try to contact the Folks here by joining them in their activities and talking with them or inviting them in our Bungalow.
We built this house as my father gave me this lot. But, it was inside the barrio. And it was not in the main street. It has only little road infront of the house. Trycicles, motorcicles and cars can still enter. Its very peaceful here.
It is fenced with wires and only 1 neighbor at left side. The others are a little bit far from us.
We have lived here during our holidays the past years, but, since we built a new and bigger one, (also for rent as holiday house )we just come here to rest and drink coffee. We dont need this house anymore, but, I cant sell it, because that lot was memorable for my father. He inherited it too and dont want to loose it.
So, Ive just decided to just rent it to all Balikbayans and foreighners all over the world.
For 100 dollars a week, for 4 persons , all inclusive , (water, electric )you can live in our Bungalow. Its just only a walk from the Town middle and near beaches as well as some tourist spots in Luzon. And your contact person is nice and friendly who knows all places in Luzon.
For 10 dollars per day, you can get him as Tourist guide. So enjoy your holiday in the Philippines.
We will send Photos per E-mails.To see the inside of the house and the furnitures.
Introducing the Folks in my Town and in other parts of the Philippines!
The Foreighners are already common for the Folks in our Barrio. They see the Germans, Americans, Japanese, Australians and the others who live there during their vacations in the Philippines. In the street where my parent live, for example, have almost every family at least a foreign son in law or member of the family who live abroad like Hawai, Australia, Germany, Chinese, Texas, California, Japan, Hongkong, Saudi Arabia, Canada, England, and these people come often to their Towns as they built their houses there as well as to see their family and Town. The favorite place of many Germans!
So if you want to learn people and know the Philippines way of life, and at the same time, to see the nice places in Luzon, the biggest Island in the Philippines, I suggest you to stay in my Province Pangasinan. We have beautiful beaches, Hundred Islands, near Bagiou as well as the natural wonders of the World, the ancient Rice Terraces.
You dont have to be afraid of all the bad news about the Philippines. Youll find safety in our Town. Everywhere youll go, either in the Banks, Malls or in any Fast Foods restaurants, like Jolly Bees or Mc Donalds, youll find Armed security Guards , who are always ready to help you. We have also Barrio Guards( Barangay Tanod ) who watch our place, also in the night. Although, theres really, a little need of them, because crimes in our Town( or I think, outside Urban areas ) is a rarity.
We Filipinos, despite of Political intrigues and Poverty, we still remain Friendly and hospitable to our Guests. We easily laugh and our warm Smile is but, natural for us. Everywhere youll go, youll be greeted with honorific Maam or Sir. They are friendly, not only to their own Folks , but, as well as to the visitos . Seldom can you find such hospitable people who enjoy the company of Foreighners. (especially to western)Perhaps, because we were under the Spain, for longer time, the Americans as well as the Japanese.
Its easy to communicate with them, most of the Pilipinos are billingual, and the conversation in english is almost possible to anyone, anytime and anywhere.
Dont be surprised, if somebody call you, Joe, they call all White men with such name. THey mean it, Joe the American.
The last years, I see and hear more Filipina Women, marrying Europeans and Americans , so interracial marriages are now common to them. Unlike before, if they see a filipina woman going out, with white man, they think her as a Prostitute. Before , if I was in tour there, with my children, I was often asked , if I was a Nanny to them. And although, the Western men look good and bright, you cant avoid them to think, that Pilipinos want to go with them, just to have better life. Many of us live in Poverty !
But, well despite of Poverty, we are still fond of Feasts and love to celebrate it with dances, eating good Foods and enjoy the company of each others. The term Bayanihan is the term Pilipinos use to describe the kind of common Spirit that hold us together, in good times and in bad times and we extend it to Visistors as well.
So , I invite all, to visit my country , the Philippines and see it your self . You are cordially Welcomed !
Please see my Albums in care2. com with my name of Eminga Ocay as well as my blogs there about Philippines. I can also send pictures of the house and the place of vacation in your E-mails.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
