      Christmas at Jimmys

      Great family orientated place, myself and 2 friends stayed at fat Jimmys over Christmas 2011/2012 and had a great stay...

      Ivone was great, got us breakfast every morning and it was included in the price all for like £4 a night....couldnt ask for better. Plus it was great being able to watch a nice happy filipino family celebrate their Christmas eve.. Was quite heart warming considering my friends and I were spending Christmas away from our own families.

      Location is just slightly behind all the main stuff on station too, so if any other person complains about it, well my advice, get off your arse and walk less than 5 mins and you'l be rewarded with that white sandy beach.

      Granted tis probably is not the best location for the slightly older or those with walking disabilities as the path to the beach is quite narrow and often crowded with passing bikes.

      Only negative was the inital greeting as we got off the pedicab thing as there was loads of begging children near the entrance which can be very off putting.

      ... splash of a pouring rain came. Later we were about to go out to get something to eat when our neighbors invited us for dinner. We actually met them the day before shortly after we arrived. We bought a pineapple but it was way too big for two of us so we offered one third of it to our new neighbors, a young couple from Russia (Kate and Mike) and their friend Chingiz from Kazakhstan (currently living in Russia). It was very kind of them to share their dinner with us. ...

      ... pesky jellyfish to contend with but if you can suck this up you will be amazed. A great intermediate dive is Crocodile Island, we saw a fan that spanned 3-4 meters, sea snakes, moray's, nudibranches, a plethora of coral and a anenamis, a turtle, lion fish, cleaner shrimp and so many fish species I lost track. This was probably the healthiest reef I have seen in the Philippines and one of the healthiest in the world. ...

      ... I ask Kuya why? then he told us that even a small particle from a cotton fabric can cause obstruction to the holes from where the water comes in and out. It is a combination of fresh water and a sea water.

      ... made the fortress their exclusive preserve, with locals relegated to surrounding areas. Feared by Spain’s enemies, Intramuros became the only mighty European city (64 hectares) in Asia, with its walls fortified with bastions and surrounded by drawbridges.

      The battle devastation took 150,000 civilian lives and destroyed almost all the grand stately homes, imposing government buildings, churches, monasteries, convents, ...
