New 7 Wonders Puerto Princesa Underground River, Longest Crocodile Lolong and Manny Pacquiao

New 7 Wonders of Nature- Puerto Princesa Underground River
Puerto Princesa Underground River grabbed the top 7 of New 7 Wonders of Nature on it's initial counting of votes along with Amazon , Halong Bay, Iguazu Falls, Jeju Island, Komodo and Table Mountain. From my 7 bet,  only 3 wonders of nature made it to this initial list. From 440 locations in 220 countries and all the way to 28 finalist candidates I'm very happy that our own Philippine entry made it to the top 7.

The results are provisional and final results will be announce early this 2012 after checking, validating and verification of all the votes around the world. I believe that PP Underground River will maintain it's position on the top 7 due to the power of text messaging or SMS and Internet in our country, all out support of the government, the Filipino people and the world.

"Lolong" The Guinness Book of World Records Longest Crocodile 

A few days ago, before 7 Wonders of Nature voting ends, "Lolong" was declared the new longest crocodile in the world measuring 21 feet and 1 inch by Dr. Adam Britton, an Australian Zoologist. Cassius Clay is the existing record holder of Guinness Book Records for largest crocodile measuring only 18 feet and was featured in two page 2012 Guinness Book of World Records last September 2011.

According to rules, it will take 6 months before "Lolong" will be officially declared and only in March 2012 will it be featured in the Guinness Book of World Records. Lolong was named after Ernesto "Lolong" Conate, a member of the team who captured the crocodile but died in heart attack before it was caught in Bunawan Agusan del Sur last September 3, 2011.

Pacquiao vs. Marquez 3

The boxing trilogy of Filipino and Mexican, Pacquiao vs. Marquez 3 has brought anticipation to millions of boxing fans of Manny Paquiao around the world in the third time to prove that he is really the winner from the past two fights. What should Pacquiao prove to the people?

This fight is one of the biggest Manny has ever been and will guaranteed him $22 million (around P947 million or almost 1 Billion pesos) without pay per view and other revenue generating schemes. Marquez will only make $5 million ( around P220 million or quarter of a billion pesos). This is a huge sum of money from the two boxers alone.

With Pacquiao improving his footwork and right hand and Marquez adding muscles to boost his power, let's watch this epic fight and be proud of Filipino Fighter, Philippine new wonders of nature and the longest crocodile in the world, all in the magic of 11.11.11 and this will definitely help Philippine tourism in the coming years.
