Sunny side up in San Jose
Manila Bulletin
By Robert J. Fry
Mar 28, 2011

To the casual observer, San Jose appears to be just another standard provincial town, with most people just passing through or using it as a gateway point to Palawan or the magnificent Apo Reef. Stick around though and you’ll see that this is the kind of place where friendship flows freely — as does Red Horse beer. It’s also home to world class diving and an abundance of marine life. If you’re a foreigner, people may try and touch your skin here, but with the accompanying look of bewilderment and eyes that know no malice — it’s hard to get upset. Just smile back and drop some Tagalog, you’ll be amazed at the reaction you get.

MANILA, Philippines - It was a leap of faith,” Nigel Fisher admits. Although he had spent sometime in various places in Asia including Bali, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong and Macau, he had never been to the Philippines before.
