Hello, Chona, and welcome to Tripatini! It's great to have you with us -- and we think you'll find our site productive as well as interesting and enjoyable.
To get the most out of Tripatini, you may want to take a moment to join several of our many groups which you may find of particular interest, such as the Philippines, Resorts Corner, Beach-Bumming, Deals & Packages, Adventure Travel, Eco/Sustainable Tourism, Eating/Drinking the World, Hotels/Motels, and plenty of others covering many other topics and most destinations across Asia and the globe.
FYI, on your profile you'll see a green bar marked "Text Box," which you can turn into a box containing not just text but also photos and even videos about yourself, your interests, your travels, the Philippines, and your company (it will benefit both yourself and our other members to add the company name to your profile).
Finally, if you would, please be so kind as to spread the word among your travel-interested friends, family, colleagues, and associates. It's fast and easy to use our "INVITE" function above left on the navigation bar to enter e-mails (even your whole list at once!).
Thanks much for joining us; we wish you an outstanding rest of 2009 and look forward to seeing you online.
