it was fun reading your entries and with some of which i already experienced and with some i've already considered yet haven't done yet. here to share just three out of the many interesting and some witty entries on "What you think i should experience this year in the Philippines?" which for sure i wanted to experience but maybe not all within the year.
 "Go to Mindoro to meet the Mangyans and photograph their man-made refrigerator! (See for yourself na lang how they make their refs and where they place it!" - Beth
- sounds really intriguing on how they actually do that. Mindoro is on my list to visit this year and let me see if i get the knack of finding that improvised refrigerator when i get there.
 "Off the beaten path, somewhere in Anda in the province of Bohol are remnants of a long forgotten history- hanging coffins. Several hematite paintings could be seen on the wall of the cave where the remnants are. Facing the Mindanao Sea, could they be ritual symbols for the long voyage?" - Edik
- first time to know about hanging coffins in Bohol apart from the ones that i've seen in Sagada. the Hematite paintings in the caves are very interesting.
 "Climb Mt. Napulak (Igbaras, Iloilo) and see the world's largest flower - the Rafflesia a.k.a "corpse flower". It would be a challenge as rafflesia is rare and a little hard to located as it only last for a few days. :) The view is also beautiful. Just go and discover what Igbaras has to offer, as they have many falls and caves that are yet to be discovered by the public." - Audrey
- i remember seeing this plant featured on a tv show and with your entry, it led me to research more about it. with the fact that this plant is rare and so unique this gives me the challenge of actually seeing it myself.
congratulations to Audrey who's going to get the Lonely Planet Philippines travel guide book and to Edik and Beth who gets to receive the latest issue of Lonely Planet Philippines magazine.
