There’s just something so magical, so mystical about the Philippines that even as a permanent resident of this country—I still find myself in awe of it. Napaka-ganda lang talaga ng Pilipinas! I’ve been fortunate enough to travel around the world, but nothing comes close to the islands that I call home. If you look at the famed Conde’ Nast Travel List, you’ll find Boracay, Cebu and Palawan as top players year after year. Palawan in particular has been voted many times as the Best Island in the World!!! And it is a well-deserved tag indeed.
Butterfly Twists invited me to take part of their Life Moves Fast challenge in Palawan and I was more than ready to do it. It came at a good time, just a few days after my birthday, and I wanted to really do something special for my 34th. Their mission was very clear and as a working mom it really appealed to me: “We believe in embracing the fact that Life Moves Fast. We exist to help women take on whatever comes their way.” Their shoes have become staples in my closet and I can honestly say that these twists have been with me through many family milestones, meetings at work, playdates, and other small daily adventures.
I was so happy to tick off another box on my bucket list thanks to this travel challenge. Patrick and I visited the Puerto Princesa Subterranean River—one of the New 7 Wonders of the World!!! The experience was so surreal, it made me appreciate the stillness of nature and the purpose of God’s creation. It’s something I would highly recommend and would be happy to do again. “Life Moves Fast” indeed, so you have to just go out there, be brave to try new things, embrace the life you have and make it the most awesome one ever! Here are some snaps from my Life Moves Fast experience 🙂
