The Squat Shrimp 

The most common crustacean that you will see around Puerto Galera is the Thor amboinensis also known as the Squat Shrimp.

Squat Shrimp

The Squat Shrimp is very small and can only grow up to four (4) centimeters. It has reddish to brownish red color with white spots around its body and blue line on the edge of the spots. They are normally seen on anemones, soft corals and even on the side of tube worms. They can be seen in pairs or in a group of six (6) to eight (8). They feed on parasites, algae and planktons.

One of the challenges with the squat shrimps is how to take their picture since they will hop around and hide fast specially when you get closer to them.

Reggae Mistress 

Reggae Mistress the only reggae band in the Philippines fronted by three powerful women harmonized into one. A style all their own aptly called the Mstres Stylee.

Reggae Mistress

Rene "Chong" Tengasantos, and wife Irma "Chang" two of the pioneers of reggae in the Philippines thought of forming a Pinoy sounding reggae band back in 2002. Chong conceptualized the group with women frontliners in mind, a fresh idea in a male-dominated band scene. He was inspired by the I Trees - Rita Marley, Judy Mowatt and Marcia Griffith, back-up vocals of the legend Bob Marley.

The legendary unsurpassed drummer of Reggae Eurasia (the first Pinoy reggae band) - Chong and the blazing Raggae Momma in the country - Chang, is joined by daughter Lady i, and niece Ira on vocals. They are backed-up by young yet seasoned musicians Puto, Eric, Mags, Chox, and Lito. A combination of the young and the veterans harmoniously woven together dishing out one reggae feast after the next.

Reggae Mistress mixes up a deliciously concocted cocktail of genres from rock & roll, blues, soul, jazz and a dash of dancehall and lover's rock putting a reggae relish on top making it a new sound, distinctively Mstres Stylee. The sistahs are really doin' it

Dubbed as the Soul Sisters of Reggae, they bagged the 2007 Reggae Artist of the Year in the 3rd Hiphop Awards & got nominations for Best Word/Alternative category for the song "Kaibigan" in the 20th Awit Awards and Best New Artist" in the 2006 NU107 Rock Awards, Opened acts for: Reggaefest by the Bay with Ziggy Marley 2007 and Black Eyed Peas 2004.

Reggae Mistress hopes to spread the good vibes of their music not only to Pinoys but to the rest of the world.
Staying true to the reggae spirit in One Heart, One Love, One Soul. Roots Rockin' Reggae that's what they call it.
