Happy Birthday Carmen

We aren’t 100% sure of the exact date because Carmen’s passport, which her father originally applied for her says her birth day is October 10th.  Her birth certificate says today, October 11th yet her Mom says she was born on the 12th.   Now I don’t know about you, but I know that Dads rarely get things like this right, Governments and our hospital is a Government department make mistakes but how can you argue with a Mom?  Seems to me that of all three entities involved, we should put more faith in Mom but despite what I think, Carmen is celebrating today.  My wife, Patricia, asked the kitchen staff to prepare a Yapese fresh fruit “cake” and several of us sang Happy Birthday.  The fruit “cake” was in support of Carmen who has been on a very strict diet for the past several months and has lost more than 100 pounds.  I would include a before and after picture with this post but I suspect Carmen would kill me and it’s never good having the accountant try to kill the boss.

Another Manta Ray Original - Fresh Fruit "Cakes"

She probably would still like to kill me because of the singing just to make sure it won’t happen next year.

We stayed at the hotel and dove with Manta Ray divers in early December 2017. The hotel is very comfortable, well run and staffed with wonderful employees. During our visit my wife came down with an illness and the consideration and support from the hotel and dive staff could not have been better.read more

The staff couldn't be more friendly and accommodating. Food is good, (worth upgrading to include all meals). Diving is good too.read more

The best place to stay in Yap. The resort is really nice and clean, the scuba diving is great, and the docked ship that houses the bar, restaurant, and movie screen is very cool. I really enjoyed my stay here.read more

The whole place centers around the scuba diving operation. Probably better to find somewhere else if you're not a diver. The dive operation was generally good, but a little too laid back - schedules weren't always clear, and sometimes would change without any notice. Sometimes it was hard to tell if this was really because of changing tides/weather or because of the island pace of life. Pizza is a surprisingly good option at the restaurant.read more
