The Puerto Princessa Underground River



I've recently travelled to Palawan with my sister.  And while I still have to blog about it, I'm starting with this one because this is one cause close to my heart.



Having visited the Puerto Princessa Underground River, I believe that it deserves to be one of the NEW 7 WONDERS OF THE WORLD.


The Puerto Princessa Subterranean River, measured at 8.2 km is considered as the world's longest navigable underground river. 


It is also one of the Philippines' World Heritage Sites.


The rock formations (stalactites and stalagmites) found on the cave are simply indescribable.  The locals have even termed and named these formations depending on what they look like.



I urge every Filipino to explore our country and see nature's best work.  Let us also share this marvel and make sure that the Puerto Princessa Underground River becomes one of the new 7 wonders of the world.

The English Patient

There are movie lines...

And then, there are "the movie lines"


The English Patient is one of my all time favorite movie.  It stars the oh-so-mysterious Ralph Fiennes as Count Almasy (who incidentally is also a real person).

It is based on a novel of the same title by Michael Ondaatje (which is also one of my fave writers).

Michael's writing can be described as "imaginative and whimsical."  He likes to write stories about the ravages of war and the interesting people living it.

He also writes about relationships and betrayal.
 "Betrayals in war are childlike compared with our betrayals during peace. New lovers are nervous and tender, but smash everything. For the heart is an organ of fire." And of course, love.

This movie has "the movie lines" to die for.


Almasy to Katherine:  "Swoon, I'll catch you"
If only this statement can be trusted. If only guys are all like this in real life.

Singapore

Singapore is so much like Makati -- tall buildings, fast people & talkative Filipino yuppies. Not so much sights but then again, we were there to overspend on pasalubongs and go retail shopping. I don't want to brag, but between here and Manila, Manila wins hands down (on my own standards). :-)



Our hotel was located at Orchard Rd. and it has (thankfully) Starbucks at the groundfloor. We went down one night only to realize that coffee (as with cigarrettes) is so much more pricey there.

Athough, I must say, the air is worth breathing and the streets are super clean. Thank God for countries who respect the rights of non smokers to nice, clean air.

March 8: International Women's Day

International Women's Day is celebrated across the world on March 8th each year. The day is about celebrating the vital role women play in enhancing economic security for their families, communities and countries as a whole while recognising that significant barriers to achieving women's economic security and equality continue to exist.

Just want to share this quote to all the ladies out there: 

A man wears the pants in a relationship but the woman tells the man which pair to put on.
