Now, we all know that a tragic earthquake hit Ecuador just last month. This will definitely be a crucial factor for the South American country to postpone any planned hosting duties in favor of far more important matters to address.
As far as the Philippines is concerned, the allegedly required PhP750 million fund to be this year’s host is an amount that could break any financier’s bank account. And so far, no takers from the private sector are biting the bullet, so to speak. It is possible that financial advisers are not too keen in heaping solid recommendations for a potentially large return of investments because the profits may not be that enticing even to the most daring of investors.
And so, we come to everyone’s favorite – Las Vegas. If things are not solidified by June (the alleged deadline), it could be back to the Strip come December. If you ask me, I’m always happy with Sin City because the support our representatives get from Filipinos everywhere is simply enormous. Add to that the fact that this place can really factor in all the expenses without getting so dangerously in the red. It’s a high rollers’ paradise, after all, where even the regular gamblers add collectively astounding amounts of dollar to the plate.
So if nothing prospers in either Ecuador or the Philippines come June, you know where to book your vacation next! 😉
