      Hey PrettyDarkHorse, WOW!!! Your hub looks really awesome. I like it's design. However, I would like to let you know you left a couple of things out- keyword - hubtrail capstone and you also have no RSS feed for Hubtrailing along. Just thought I would let you know. :) Great read and excellent presentation!!! :) Thank you very much for joining Hubtrail. :)

      Hey PrettyDarkHorse, your TITLE is kind of hard to not see?? I made the reference to the tag/keyword " hubtrail capstone " is not on your list of tags. I would think that you would like to be consistent and get the most out of your hub. So, keywords/tags with one or more of the title is usually good. :) I hope that helped. :)

      It looks like an island paradise, for sure, Maita! Do you get to visit often? I'd think you'd be chomping at the bit (no pun intended pdHORSE - lol) to get there! It certainly has expanded my mental picture of it! I'd just sort of invisioned it as full of orchards and fields. I'm glad to know more and will definitely want to delve into it more yet!

      I can vouch for the truthfulness of what you say. Before I got married I would go to the Philippines every year. The people are the friendliest you will find anywhere. Indeed it is a beautiful country and not expensive. Great hub.
