Lucky me I caught this picture last December in our family vacation at Batangas, Phil.

nice pics! i love number 2,3 and 4

this is so inspiring and touching, anton. thank you for bringing all these together. there is truly no other place like home, and home will always be where my heart is.

Photo No. 2 is not real with digital editing makes the photo look fake.

i love 1 and 8. 1 because it is a strong photo. a conqueror and a survivor. i also love 8 because its witty, funny and endearing..

great photos for all!!!

I like 1,7 and 8 nice photos!

Thanks for the comment, Belle! I was inspired by the photos and Im glad I published the top 10 :)

Beautiful photos!!!

Sir, you may want to see this.

I like pictures 1,3 and 8!

i like 1. 2 and maybe 4 may have been edited a touch too much.

i like number 8. it shows the real value of filipino. the photo itself can speak for it's own. no need to explain

I love this post! I feel more proud to be a Filipino! Great! c",)

I just miss those days when we were still young back in bicol when we get to take a bath on the side of the road on those "bukal" or super mini water falls. Before going to Tiwi and eating the ever famous halo halo in ice blink. AS far as I can remember they were using the old school ice shaver so it usually takes a while when doing your halo halo.
Then my lolo makes this pure chocolate cacao (authenticity level - 100) drying up the beans and waiting for a couple of days.

Naga's toasted siopao, Tabaco's suman latik of Tiya concing, and tuna in catanduanes.
I want to go back where my roots are.

Very relaxing nature shots. Good Job!

Wow! I got the 5th place pala... not bad! Congrats to the top 3 winners!

i like the only shows that there's still beautiful place in the philippines..
