    The
    Dos Palmas kidnappings was a hostage crisis in the southern Philippines that began with the seizing of twenty hostages from the affluent Dos Palmas Resort on a private island in the Honda Bay, Palawan, by members of Abu Sayyaf on May 27, 2001 and resulted in the deaths of at least five of the original hostages, including the two American citizens, Guillermo Sobero and Martin Burnham.[1] At least 22 Filipino soldiers were killed in attempts to apprehend the captors and free the hostages in the 12 months following the initial hostage taking.[2] An unknown number of captors were killed by government forces.

    ^yeah. Sir Landreth is da man with $$$. He has a thread about his trip to Machu Pichu - one of those that stuck in my mind.

    @TizMe - the next year (or years) after, Dos Palmas was in the news again bcos a very popular young actor, Rico Yan (Fil-Chinese), died of acute pancreatitis (layman's term: nightmare) while vacationing with other showbiz friends at Dos Palmas. He was at the peak of his career as a preppy guy when he died. I remember being saddened by his death - I was younger then and I found him cute in that good boy, preppy way. After that, Dos Palmas had that "unlucky/cursed" repo. The two tall palm trees (which they named the resort after) was said to be an ominous name. Harbinger of doom - if you believe in those things. Heh...

    I wonder if business has recovered for Dos Palmas in recent years?

    I'd say so. I tried to book there last year, but it was booked out.

    It is wise to avoid those haunted rooms that the ghosts/white lady prefers. The rest are okay.

    If a TD member wants to relax in Dos Palmas I can find out which rooms are best avoided. Can also throw in a free massage from yours truly. Kidding only.
    Yes, but can you answer Slick's pressing question?

    Sorry, still having issues with edit and quote buttons..... I'm a nugget when it comes to technology stuff.

    They've built a tower to monitor incoming boats. Unwelcome visitors are warned to stay off the island, especially at night. The tower us monitored 24/7 by licensed armed men carrying high powered weapons at all times. In fairness to them, they've upped the security in the island to protect the guests.

    Business has never been the same in Dos Palma's especially after the kidnappings. Westerners avoid it like a plague.

    Majority of the guests nowadays are Manila Socialites, Koreans and Japanese. They love the fresh seafood that the resort offers.

    And as for perky breasts, I'm sure I'll pass the pencil test. 555.
    I am so unlucky that if I fall into a barrel full of D*ick**s, I'd come out sucking my own thumb!
