Thirteen of My Favorite Places in the Philippines

1. Palawan ~ I have been there once and I really fell in love with the place. It's such a magnificent site and I would like to go back soon.

2. Boracay ~ I have been there several times but this is still my favorite get-away destination.. I'm scheduled to go back there again next month.

3. Camiguin ~ I have never been there and I would like to see the marvelous falls and everything else in this island

4. Tagaytay ~ just a few minutes away from my home and my favorite haven

5. Baguio ~ I would never tire watching the splendid view of the mountains

6. Puerto Galera ~ just a few hours from home, my friends and I often go here

7. Cebu ~ the oldest city in the Philippines... this photo is a shot of the luxurious resort Plantation Bay

8. Bohol ~ home of the famous Chocolate Hills, Tarsier and Panglao Island
I've been here once for a cousin's wedding and I like the place

9. Batanes ~ our storm capital but I really like to go here one day

10. Surigao ~ I've been here once and I would like to explore more of this place

11. Davao ~ home of Mt. Apo, the highest peak in the Philippines and the Eagle Farm

12. Makati ~ maybe not my usual get-away destination but this is where I work and I spent most of my time here

13. Cavite ~ There's no place like home and I'm a true-blooded Caviteña,
this photo was taken just outside my house

Note: Some photos taken from Google

Those are MAGNIFICENT. My husband spent a lot of time there but I never realized how beautiful it was till I saw these magnificent photographs.

Good luck coping with the lupus. I love the title of the blog and your attitude. Based on my own experience with a different sort of problem, just remember---you're not your disease and it isn't you; it's just a thing in your life. (That's why I think this is such a brilliant title).

Thank you for your comments. There's more to Philippines than Manila and I'm proud to say that we have so many beautiful spots we got to offer.
