Image
  The city of Memphis is home to things of all shapes and sizes. This diversity means that there are plenty of companies to go along with. These employers are always looking for people to hire for the jobs they’re offering. Who are these employers/companies you ask? You can look all around the city to find them, but the top three to look at are FedEx, AutoZone, and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. Jobs and their demand can be big factors in determining where you live in the area. Memphis houses for sale can also affect where you stay. FedEx   FedEx is one of the largest companies in the world for logistics. They’ve got over 200,000 employees and six million vehicles! The company is huge and continues to grow every day. Of course, more growth leads to a demand for employees that can keep up with FedEx’s expansion. Not only will you have a well-paying job with FedEx, you’ll also have the opportunity to make someone’s day better. Imagine this, you’re dropping off that Christmas

Edison, The guides of Fireflies.

The Enthusiastic Edison Dalanon.
I heard mixed feedback about firefly-watching tour conducted in Puerto Princesa City in the past. Some say there are no fireflies to see, some say the food they serve is great.

Then finally, as I explore my beloved city this summer of 2016, I had the chance of experiencing this new attraction at night. With the assistance from the City Tourism Office, through my former colleague Michie Hitosis and other nine bloggers from Manila, we witnessed right before our eyes this amazing fireflies-watching tour in Sicsican River.

We were late due to some miscommunication but our friendly tour guide Edison Dalanon cheerfully welcomed us on board on their floating resto at the Baybay. This is the place where I grew up when it was known as Sea Plane Base 1 and 2.

There was a lady singer serenading us while cruising the Puerto Bay and enjoying the sumptuous meals they prepare. It’s an eat-all-you-can drama with the view from the bay.  As soon as we finished our meals, we were told to transfer to the first boat that fetched us from the pier of Baybay for a 15-minute ride going to the Sicsican River, and we have to transfer again to another smaller boat that will take us inside the river.

During those travel moments, I noticed how our guide Edison impressed us. His skills are beyond ordinary. You will know he is knowledgeable enough for his job. He does his research well and can explain very well everything about fireflies with his humor.

As we traverse the inner Sicsican River in a gloomy night background, Edison challenged us to identify all the stars in the heaven. True enough, he even knows all the names, positions and locations of the stars. He brought a flashlight that could reach almost the stars that made all of us amazed. We were clapping and even calling him a Jedi for that moment. That part was so magical indeed.
Deep inside the River, Edison showed his craft in showing us the real habitat of fireflies located beneath the mangroves. With his red flashing light, the trees were lit like Christmas in the malls. We were stunned and we were grateful that we experienced it. We saw around four trees in total full of fireflies that evening.

After the viewing, we had the chance of getting to know more of our guide. Edison told us that he is doing this part time job for almost four years. He is a radio jock in a local FM station and he really loves talking. Originally from Pasay City, he moved to Puerto Princesa along with his family.

“Tour guiding is a passion. So kung hindi mo talaga passion, why study? It’s a just a waste of time.” Dalanon said.
Inside the floating resto.
Aside from Fireflies-Watching tour, Dalanon also does guide tours for Dolphin and Whale watching tours that usually takes place early morning on a daily basis. Obviously, he loves my City and a legit victim of kambakkambak syndrome, a local saying that when you visit Palawan and you wish to stay there for good, you are stuck with this syndrome.

“It’s really amazing to see fireflies on their own habitat, and you’ll have a dinner in our floating resto. We serve it hot and fresh. It’s hard to tell, hard to explain. All you need to do is do it and you’ll be amazed.” Dalanon said in closing.

For inquiries on the said tours, you may contact Dolphin & Whales Travel and Tours. They also have Facebook page and can contact them at mobile number 09152632105.

Note: I don’t have enough photos since Fireflies watching requires a much high quality kind of camera, plus I enjoyed the moment since I was amused so much I forgot to document it.
