Philippines in the Top 7 Natural Wonders of the World!
For so many years I’ve been bluffed by my elementary teachers that our Banaue Rice Terraces is officially one of the wonders of the world. Until someone burst-ed my bubble and said “it’s the 8th” … WHAT? we only got SEVEN right?!
Then we got a chance to change history in 2007, we got nominated. However, our very own Pinoy Rice Paddies didn’t make it to the New 7 wonders of the World. Whereas the whole world voted and it was announced two years ago.
BUT IT’S NEVER TOO LATE
We can still practice our online voting brigade power and prove that the Pinoys’ people power can shape history once again. We managed to nail a year-after-year landslide victory in Miss Universe voting campaign for Miss Photogenic, so we can do this!
Last July 21, 2009 the Panel of Experts announced the 27 finalist and we are IN! Our Puerto Princessa Subterranean River has been shortlisted in the top 27.

Together with other magnificent wonders of nature across the globe, it’s a neck to neck battle!
