you might have noticed that i have no post lately or haven't visited your blog during the past days, simply because we don't have internet connection in our area. technical problems with the telco's new hardware. i felt like i was in Batad during the past few days. still hoping that the connection will resume the soonest time but here's to announcing the winners of the eskapo contest.
[1] When our Mt. Pinatubo group asked me "Where would I want to go next?" I answered Slide for Life in Davao. Gusto ko din dun ka pumunta this year.I want to see pictures of you while sliding for life, so I will recommend Camp Zabros, Davao del Sur. - nicely
[2] You should go to Batanes because: 1. it will surely be different from all the places you've been to in the Philippines 2. it's only a matter of time (God forbid) before it gets congested with tourists 3. it will make you a proud Filipino, upon discovering how honest, kind, and generous they can be. - pam
[3] Camotes Island--be there in March for the Soli-Soli Festival, plus Camotes has a beautiful lake, spectacular beaches, rock formations and caves to explore. Guimaras--Nueva Valencia, they say, is the next Boracay. Manggahan fesival around mid-April and Layag and Pagdayao festivals in May.Polilio Island for adventure. it's a bird sanctuary, the island has unspoiled forest, beaches are pristine. -luna miranda

i might not be able to visit in all these places but you sure gave me one great season to be one those places. the rest didn't just made it the cutoff time of the contest. winners, please email me i.dongho@gmail.com on how to claim your prize and hopefully i'll be able to check my email within the week when the connection resumes. thanls for all those who participated.
