It is not an easy task, I would admit. This is a small contribution, an initiative, to help make people aware and care about Philippine Tourism and the Philippines. We are just starting. What is important is that we start somewhere. We would need more people, our fellow Filipinos, and our friends, to see this through, and make it a reality. :)
Yes, I am with the Department of Tourism (DOT), but this is an unofficial, personal, journal that will document exciting and memorable episodes in my journey we all can learn from and be proud of. So first, I am proud to say, Pilipinas Kay Ganda! The Philippines is so beautiful! I agree with this statement completely. If only we get to see it through our own eyes. If only we had the opportunity to travel and experience it first hand. If only we let others take us through, then probably, even how tiny it can be, it will affect and effect our desired outcome.
I have a lot of backlogs I want to share with you, but for now, I leave you with the Giant Lantern Festival that will happen tomorrow in the Christmas Capital of the Philippines, San Fernando, Pampanga (Region III).

It will be my first time to see for myself the beauty of the Giant Lantern Festival. There's a scheduled fireworks exhibition to cap-off the event before midnight.
Tara, game na! I am all ready. Let's go and explore the Philippines! XD
