Kalinga Gold Coffee

Organically grown at the ideal altitude of 4,000 to 5,000 feet, Kalinga Gold is a blend of the Arabica bean, known for its heady aroma and intense flavor, the Robusta bean for additional richness, and the Excelsa bean for a twist of complex flavor.

Kalinga Gold coffee was first introduced by Spanish Conquistadores between 1873 and 1881 to the tribes of the Cordillera Mountains in Northern Philippines. The entire crop of organically grown coffee was then shipped to Spain and sold for fabulously high prices, with preciously little trickling back to Manila's ruling class. Only today, more than a century later, is the same coffee available, and in limited quantities!

Kalinga Gold prospered in the Cordillera under the leadership of an Igorot chieftain named Commising. Commising secured his influence and power by defending his people from the head-hunting Busoles of the North. Today, this same coffee is harvested in limited quantities by Commising's descendants -- the indigenous peoples of Kalinga and the Cordillera Mountains.

Kalinga Gold Coffee is available to coffee lovers everywhere from KabayanCentral.com - The World's Filipino Store.

Long Live Fernando Poe Jr. - "Da King" of Philippine Movies

Ronald Allan Kelley Poe or Fernando Poe Jr. (August 20, 1939 – December 14, 2004), better known as FPJ, "Da King" of Filipino movies ruled the Philippine box office for thirty years. He almost won the Philippine presidency in 2004 by sheer crowd-drawing power.

He rose to fame with the movie "Low Waist Gang" in 1956, a movie so popular low-waist pants became a Philippine fad. The 1958 sequel "Lo’ Waist Gang at Og sa Mindoro" was recently re-released and quietly sold to hit the Kabayan November 2008 Top 10 Movies at number 7. Two other re-released FPJ movies, "Kapag Lumaban Ang Api" ( 1986 ) and "Daang Hari" ( 1984 ) were at numbers 9 and 10, respectively.

Years after his death, FPJ is still a crowd favorite. FPJ made over 200 movies in his lifetime, including the Panday series, "Kahit Kaunting Patingin" with megastar Sharon Cuneta, and his last movie "Pakners" with 9 balls billiards champion Efren "Bata" Reyes.

You can get your favorite movies, from the latest blockbusters to the hard-to-find hits of the 1930s from the World's Filipino Movie Store - KabayanCentral.com.

Sending Gifts to the Philippines this Holiday Season is as Easy as 1-2-3

Hello all!

It is ingrained in the psyche of most if not all Filipinos living abroad to send gifts to their loved ones in the Philippines. It's a way of saying, "wish you were here with us", or "here's some of the fruits of our labor", and simply sharing God's blessings with those back home.

The conventional way of sending gifts is by shipping care packages, called "balikbayan" (homeland returnee) boxes. The items are carefully selected and often times labeled for each recipient, then packed in shipping boxes. A truly labor of love. However, it can be taxing and time consuming. Delivery may take sometime and shipping cost adds more expense. But in today's global commerce technology, all of these hassles can be avoided through the help of online shopping sites.

Knowing Where to Find a Reliable Online Shopping Site---KabayanCentral introduces the simplest way of sending holiday presents to the Philippines. They are especially dedicated to sending gifts to the Philippines from any part of the world. As an online shopping site, KabayanCentral also introduces wide selection of items such as Philippine foods, beauty products, educational and documentary videos, books, Philippine music CDs, and movies. You can also send cellular telephone "load" to the recipients in the Philippines anytime. Any of these items can be sent without the need to wait for days or weeks. Through online shopping, these gifts can be sent instantaneously.

It will be easier now for Filipinos abroad to send their gifts on any occasion without experiencing any more delay. This is a good idea not just during Christmas season but also in birthdays, valentines, anniversaries, or any other special occasions.

The Convenience of Sending Gifts to the Philippines---Shopping at KabayanCentral is very convenient. The customer simply needs to follow simple methods of purchasing these gift items. For example, sending load to relatives in the Philippines can now be done in a few seconds. You are now freed of the problems in communicating with your love ones. You can also send them your favorite OPM songs and classic movies. These can be given as surprise gifts. Customers will only browse the list and then choose the products they want. After this, they will be asked to verify the necessary information for the shipment. To ensure the safety of the consumers, the site is using up to date encryption of information. Consumers are also given several options as their mode of payment.

Trusting the Service Offered by the first Filipino E-commerce Site---With its years of existence as a filipino e-commerce site, they have already gained the trust of so many clients locally and as well as from around the globe. Filipinos abroad can feel certain that they can get the gifts they would want to give. It is simply because a Filipino knows what his fellow Filipino wants as a gift. Of course, the ultimate goal of KabayanCentral is to give the internet users all over the world with fast, dependable, and cost-efficient services and products.

Sending gifts to the Philippines through online shopping provides better service than purchasing the gifts from a local gift shop because of the kind of convenience and value it gives. With this case, only few things have to be remembered by the consumers. They must ensure that the online shopping site they chose is a trusted one. Through this, consumers will be assured that they are getting the finest products at reasonable prices.

So, simplify your gift-giving tasks. Avoid the hassle of shopping in brick-and-mortar stores, big-box superstores, and discount warehouses during the holidays. Simply log onto the Internet now to have their gifts delivered anywhere in the Philippines.
