Haha, thanks. I'll take that as a compliment.

Sometimes people start talking to me in Spanish only to realize that I don't speak Spanish at all. I can understand some of the words, it's just that I can't express myself in Spanish. The same is true with most Filipinos because Spanish was replaced by English as the medium of academic instruction decades ago. But we still use most Filipinized Spanish words like "lamesa", "puerta", "palenque", etc.

No, I'm not. I'm brown, more like a latino. I have so many Filipino friends in LA who are whiter than me. I don't think I look so "white" in my picture either.

First photo for today:
Beautiful yet dangerous Mayon Volcano in Albay Province


Map of the Philippines showing Mayon in Albay Province


Its almost perfectly-shaped symmetric cone was formed through alternate pyroclastic and lava flows. Mayon is the most active volcano in the country, having erupted over 47 times in the past 400 years.[citation needed] It is located between the Eurasian and the Philippine Plate, at a convergent plate boundary: where a continental plate meets an oceanic plate, the lighter continental plate overrides the oceanic plate, forcing it down; magma is formed where the rock melts. Like other volcanoes located around the rim of the Pacific Ocean, Mayon is a part of the "Pacific Ring of Fire".

Second Photo for today:
Wonderful Chocolate Hills in Bohol Province


Map of the Philippines showing Chocolate Hills in Bohol Province


The Chocolate Hills is an unusual geological formation in Bohol, Philippines. It is composed of around 1,268 perfectly cone-shaped hills of about the same size, spread over an area of more than 50 square kilometers. They are covered in green grass that turns brown during the dry season, hence the name.

This is a well-organized presentation, Pocholo. From the world map, to the provincial map, to the specific local map, then the picture. Congratulation.

Have those ever been excavated to determine if they were built by ancient men?
