She has a 2.7 hectare farm in Lipa City where she grows papaya, guyabano, passion fruit, pomelo, lime, bananas, Blue Ternate and others.

She is ably assisted by Carol, her all-around assistant who does the meticulous recording of crops they are planting, preparing a unique organic fertilizer that consists of old chicken manure and fermented egg shell. Carol does the sourcing of seedlings for planting as well as in marketing the harvest.

Mrs. Yee, actually, is not after profit in her pleasure farming. She just wants to be keptย  busy doing something fulfilling and productive. After all, the business she started from which she retired at 80 is doing fine. Her son who took over management of the business told her not to worryย about expenses in her farming for as long as that make her happy.

One other story you will read in the January issue is about the Little Amsterdam, a flower garden in Brgy. Sirao in the highland of Cebu City. This is where millions of flowering plants are in bloom throughout the year. It is a tourist destination where 1000 to 2000 visitors pay P100 each to enter the place during Saturdays and Sundays.

The flower garden was established by a former flight attendant, Mrs. Elena Sy Chua.
