New 7 Wonders of Nature: Philippines can be a pain in the ass!

New Open World Foundation has opened the 7 Wonders Votation again!
But this time it's for the 7 Wonders of Nature...

If we recall we had a little disappointing result of the 07.07.07 New 7 Wonders of the Ancient World for the fact that Pyramids of Giza, the lone survivor of the preceding list, was not included . And on a personal note, I kind of disagree with the list.

But let's leave that alone!

A new contest is open to, if not the most deserving, the most popular Nature Site.

The voting actually started way before I knew it.

But let's see! The voting runs til the end of the year. So nations, organizations or simply put fans of the nominees can gather as much vote as they can for the longest time they can have.

Now, the more interesting part is, Philippines has three (and I mean 3) sites to be proud of:
1. Chocolate Hills (9)
2. Tubataha Reef (10)
3. Mayon Volcano (19)

that, as of writing, are ranked 9, 10 and 19 respectively.
(Mayon Volcano being the greatest gainer in the entire list)

This is not actually not the ideal nominees that I expected to be in the contention for such a prestigious list. Well, basically, Philippines is home to many strange and amazing wonders that the list is supposedly looking for:

Say Lake Taal(or Taal Volcano, making the Guiness Book of Records by being the only lake on a lake on a lake)

Hundred Islands of Pangasinan

The Banaue Rice Terraces


But I say our representatives being on the list is kind of believable!

I don't actually expect them to win but giving Mt. Everest, Grand Canyon, Great Barrier Reef, and the kinds, a pain in the ass can be way fun!!!

Now, fellow Filipinos and anyone who agree with me can now visit New

And on a personal note, you can actually use all of the emails you're aware you had!
