On the second week of January, the SSEAYP International Philippines (SIP), to which I am one of the elected officers, conducted Strategic Planning Workshop at Subic Bay. We were also visited by our member Zambales Vice Governor Ramon Lacbain.
Subic Bay is located in the province of Zambales. It is surrounded by the town of Subic and Olongapo City. It is a free port. It used to be American military base which is now converted into tax and duty free zone through volunteerism. It is administrered by the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority.
The easiest way to get there is by the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway. One can also take a bus from Dau going to Olongapo. I was fetched at the bus terminal and stayed at the residential homes of our president at Kalayaan in SBMA. Our workshop was facilitated by the group of People Ignite.
Before we left Subic, we visited the port where we saw several yachts anchored. We got into the yacth of Ms Leah Florentino of Romago Incorporated.
