Imelda Marcos's Collection Gigantic Gems to Attract Tourism

Which collection of Mrs. Imelda Marcos that would attract tourism? Her shoes or her jewelries? Yes seriously which is more attractive than the beautiful islands of the Philippines?

Published on Sep 24, 2012
The glitter of gold and the sparkle of diamonds from Imelda Marcos' jewelry collection may yet attract more tourists than her shoes, said the agency tasked with recovering the ill-gotten wealth of her family.

The Presidential Commission on Good Government (PCGG) is urging the Department of Tourism to exhibit the former first lady's jewelry collection at the Metropolitan Museum in Manila before these are sold.

"First, we should put these on exhibit because we think these can attract tourists and second, we should auction these jewelry off. Sotheby's already called us and expressed interest in auctioning these off," PCGG Chairman Andres Bautista said in a phone interview.

Bautista said that previous estimates pegged the Imelda jewelry collection at between $10 million and $20 million.

"We think, notoriety has a premium. It should be more than that," he said. 

Divided in 3 caches 

Imelda's jewels that the government have seized are divided into three caches. 

■The Malacañang collection which has roughly 300 pieces that were left behind in Imelda's closets when the Marcoses hurriedly left in 1986.

■The Honolulu collection containing at least 400 pieces that were sized by the United States Bureau of Customs from the Marcoses when they fled to Hawaii.

■The collection named after Imelda's Greek accomplice, Demetriou Roumeliotes, who was caught by Philippine authorities trying to spirit 60 pieces of jewelry out of the country a few weeks after the Marcoses left the country.

37-carat diamond 

"All of these are in the vault of Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas and they are under the jurisdiction of the PCGG and the Department of Finance. The Roumeliotes collection is the most expensive because it has very big pieces," Bautista said. Its most prominent piece is a 37-carat diamond

Don't be surprised if some Filipino women got the Imeldific shoes spirit with loads of shoes and sandals? :-)

Believe it or not Philippines Owned by One Filipino Family?

Listen kids and grandpas, once upon a time, this is the Philippines history 101.

Do you think our Philippines History needs to dig and be re-written, once Filipinos do their research and evidences of this claimed that the royal family Tagean Tallano family bought the Philippines archipelago or Maharlika Islands decades ago? Watch this video presented by Doc John on his show "Ang Laging Daan ni Doc John"

Never in the Philippines history subject that the whole Philippines archipelago is owned and bought by the Tagean Tallano as part of the missing piece history of the nation. Most Filipinos embedded  that Lapu-Lapu is one of our Filipino heroes who fought the land ownership of native Filipinos against the invasion of Spanish era but never did we know that he's related to the clan who actually owned the whole Philippines - if this claim would have been true? Wikipedia records and Philippines History book written only that "Lapu-Lapu (1491–1542) was a ruler of Mactan, an island in the Visayas, Philippines, who is known as the first native of the archipelago to have resisted the Spanish colonization. He was also responsible for the death of Portuguese Explorer Ferdinand Magellan. He is now regarded, retroactively, as the first Filipino hero.He is also known under the names Çilapulapu, Si Lapulapu,Salip Pulaka, and Kali Pulako (alternatively spelled as Cali Pulaco), though the historicity of the names is disputed."

If Filipinos would reconsider such claimed of Prince Julian Morden Tallano to resolve the Philippines squatter problems and other issues of the Spratly Islands, how would it be possible or wouldn't be great if his rights  is to be used for the common good of Filipino citizens instead of singled out by some politicians power and other alliances that would have been covering and using fraud documents to claim such titles of their own advantage?

What do you think after you have watched the interview of Doc John and Prince Julian Morden Tallano?

What is Philippines before invaded by the greedy Spanish?
HOMOBONO A. ADAZA file stated that "MAHARLIKA. Long before the Spaniards came to Philippines shores, the Philippine archipelago consisting of 7,169 islands with an area of 1,049,212,962 nautical square miles, including Guam and Hawaii was known as Maharlika. It was populated by Malays and ruled by the Tagean Tallano clans from the ninth to the fifteenth century. When the Spaniards started ruling the Philippines archipelago, they renamed it Hacienda Filipina. Of the many kingdoms in Asia, Maharlika was one of them under King Luisong Tagean Tallano, the father of Raja Lapu-Lapu and Raja Soliman, the successors of King Marikudo of the Sri Vishayan Empire. Its principal products at that time were peanuts (mani) exported to Mexico and European countries and Herbal plants known as “Nilad” with some medicinal qualities which were exported to Mainland China. With the passage of time, the Chinese traders changed the name Maharlika to Maynilad or Maynila. As in olden days, the kings and their families own their kingdoms and distribute portions to their subjects, especially to the members of the royal clans. This is exactly what happened to the Philippine archipelago, it was owned by the Tagean Tallano clans."

The Untold Story Kingdom of Maharlika Rumor Mill News

HISTORY PHILIPPINE COLONIZATION BY SPAIN: In 1478, Moslems from the Malayan Peninsula crossed the Malacca Strait and conquered Java, the capital of Madjapahit Empire. Subsequently, the Malay/ Srivijaya/ Madjapahit disintegrated.  In its place, a Moslem religious government was established inaugurating the reign of Sultanates.

A family of MAHARAJAHS AND RAJAHS, TAGEAN, was then ruling the Madjapahit Empire. They retreated and consolidated their position in a group of 7,169 islands, known as the MAHARLIKA (now Philippines) away from the oncoming Moslems. Being a descendant of royal Malayan blood, the Tagean family had its share of power, authority and riches from the collected taxes during its 900 Year rule in the empire, and even two millennia earlier when there was commerce with King Solomon of Israel.

The Maharajah and his sons, the rajahs, ruled the Maharlika using their own laws, the CODE OF KALANTIAW. The Maharlika was a very rich and flourishing country. By the early sixteenth century, the ruling maharajah, Luisong Tagean, had 720,000 metric tons of gold that he kept in present day Kota Kinabalu, Sabah or North Borneo. At that time, Sabah was part of the Maharlika.
