    The lush vegetation in the highlands of South Cotabato. The falls in the photo is just one in a series of seven separate waterfalls. I wonder how many wild species orchids hide under the canopy?

    It does, Chris. And it's relatively quiet. Rarely are there huge crowds like those in our world-famous Boracay Beach.

    Very beautiful place , Angel. So much like our country Malaysia. Actually, only 20 minute boat journey from Sabah to your country. BTW that's a very nice picture of you holding the coconut by the beach.

    Thank you, Yew Sung. We do have a lot in common, including our race. We are blessed to be living in a lovely part of the world. Some of my friends who love to travel usually land in Kota Kinabalu in Sabah and they bring me all those yummy chocolates. Oh, that "coconut" is actually a volleyball. but it's hard to tell because it's a long shot.

    Angel, you are right, it's a beautiful place, but, I'm afraid not save for foreigner, like me, from Germany.
