Puerto Princesa’s Underground River tops 7 Wonders polls

Photobucket

Subterranean River National Park, Puerto Princesa After dropping to the Top 20 last month, the Philippines’ four candidates for the New 7 Wonders of Nature are now showing a strong presence, landing on the top 11 in the live online ranking of 77 nominees from around the globe.

As of the latest count, Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park is at No. 1, Chocolate Hills of Bohol is at No. 4, closely followed by Tubbataha Reef at No. 5, and Mayon Volcano is at No. 11.

The New 7 Wonders of Nature is an ongoing campaign sponsored by the New 7 Wonders Foundation based in Switzerland. The same group initiated last year the New 7 Wonders of the World project, in which the seven new sites were officially chosen after a successful poll which posted 100 million international votes.


Chocolate Hills, Bohol “We are pleased with the current rankings. But as the finale draws near, we should be more persistent in urging Filipinos to vote and actively promote our candidates,” dsif Ace Durano, secretary of tourism.

Although the competition mandates that only one of the country’s nominees will be included in the official seven wonders, Durano said, having four strong candidates at this stage is a great boost for Philippine tourism.

“The whole world is tuned in to this competition. Even if only one of our candidates remains in the final seven, we have gained so much publicity for our country as a destination with diverse natural sites,” Durano said.


Tubbataha Reef, Palawan On the criteria for the nominees, Eduardo Jarque Jr., DoT undersecretary for planning and promotions said, “the nominees must meet one of the following criteria — it must be a natural site, a natural monument or a natural landscape.

The 21 New 7 Wonders of Nature candidates will be competing for the last time in the finalist stage that will run from 2009 to 2010. Each of the finalists will have a chance to be presented to global voters through the New 7 Wonders World Tour which will visit and document each of the 21 nominated sites.

Kanser 2018, the latest take on Noli Me Tangere.

One iconic Philippine theatre experience is Kanser, the stage version of Noli Me Tangere that is written by our National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal. There are many versions of this play by different theater groups, from musical to straight play. Gantimpala Theater Foundation made it as their own biggest production for so many years, it keep changing and upgrading in many aspects, from color feel, to music ambiance and of course the magnificent cast that is challenge to portray iconic characters onstage. Kanser 2018 proves to adopt the needful in terms of stage show, a showcase of photos and some graphics is on the projector during the performances, some new twist in some remarkable scenes is implemented, like the slapping scene of Maria Clara and Padre Salvi which the audience find it humorous. But the kissing scenes of Crisostomo and Maria Clara is always the favorite mostly by the students, they feel the “kilig” somehow.

Guadalupe The Musical, our miracle in Theater.

With the biggest Jackpot now in Ultra Lotto, everybody is asking for miracle, that they can have the winning number combination, that they win the jackpot and change their lives forever. Just like this musical Guadalupe, it answers a question that we need miracle, for us to have strong faith and earn the living that we want.

Guadalupe The Musical, Julie Borromeo’s Performing Arts Foundation, Inc current theater offering will help you realize that, there are miracles in life that we forgot to acknowledge, this are little miracles that we encounter in our daily lives, that instead of saying thank you, we ignore it because we aspire to be bigger, but this play made me realize a common cliché, sometimes dreams happen for those who are deserving to make it a reality, and that person don’t ask for that.
It is a superb musical to watch out for, even for non-Catholic it is worth a try due to its entertainment value, from the lighting design by John Batalla, the beautiful costumes, the wonde…
