    Mabuhay!

    @ron..when i saw the picture..the only words i said was "oh my God" "oh my God". its beautiful. I hope you don't mind this questions, do you get your orchid from the wild? or is there a place in Tacloban where beauts like these are being sold? Because when i went to Tacloban (city proper) i only saw usual orchids being peddled in the street.

    I thank you in advance for any response.
