TO GO WITH AFP STORY "Lifestyle-Philippines-tourism-property,FEATURE" by Cecil Morella A tourist sunbathing on the fabled beach of Boracay island on November 9, 2008. It took tear gas, arson and the Philippines Supreme Court to remove Anna Lisa Sarabia, one of the heirs who managed to save some clothes and bedsheets, from a coveted beachfront property in Boracay, where all hell is breaking loose in the fight for a piece of paradise. The 1.5-hectare (3.6-acre) warren of tourist shops, restaurants and inns went up in smoke early this month after police fired tear gas to evict the clan as the Supreme Court ended a 21-year land dispute, awarding the property to a big developer.
