Philippinian Fun... But noo!
It's not a real word...) Enjoy A Filipino Flag At least one-hundred five-million, seven-hundred twenty-thousand, six-hundred forty-four people live in the Philippines. Most of the Filipinos living in the Philippines are either Catholics, Muslims, or Christians. The languages they speak in the Philippines are pretty obvious: Filipino, English and Tagalog. The most common ethnic groups are Tagalog, Cabuano, and Ilucano. The Philippines is such a nice place; all year around, it's nice and tropical. From the rolling Chocolate Hills to Manila Ocean Park, from Taal Volcano to Puerto Princesa Subterranean River National Park, from Laguna de Bay to Salinas Salt Spring, there are so many places to visit! Stamp of Enjoyment | | V Chocolate Hills Manila Ocean Park The Chocolate Hills of Bohol, Philipines They are at least 1260 hills with grass that grows on limestone. The grass turns brown when it's dry and if you look from up above, the hills look like a field of Hershey Kisses. Manila Ocean Park behind Quirino Grandstand at Rizal Park Manila Ocean Park(MOP) is Philippines' first world class theme park. MOP has a twenty-five metre long tunnel where all types of marine life swim overhead. There's an Open Water Marine Habitat, MOP's got an Acquatica Musical Fountain with Philippines' largest water&laser show, a sea lions performance, a marine-themed mall; and a Trails to Antarctica exhibit with penguins, snow-themed photo room, and sleigh-slide for visitors. Period 8 Social Studies (Even though nobody actually reads it) Puerto Princesa River Puerto River is a *spectacular* landscape located in South-western Philippines. Fun in the Philippines Despite it's activity, Taal Lake is completely safe to swim in. On Taal Volcano, there is a resort where you can picnic and relax around the volcano. Taal Volcano has had 33 eruptions since 1572. The 1911 explosion had reached as far as Manila. The 1911 eruption 1334 people and ashes rained down on Manila city. Taal Volcano is on the island of Luzan, which is south of Manila. Wait patiently for the tray of food to come to you. Honestly, there's enough for everyone. The Filipino food we made is called lumpia (It's a certified stamp.. so it's official) It has an 82 kilometer long underground river that leads directly to the sea called Cabayogan River; and significant habitats where animals like turtles, lizards, and even badgers live at. along with several large, limestone chambers up to 120 meters wide and 60 meters high; an *eye-catching* rock formation; Laguna de Bay Located in Nueva Vizcaya and formed by the artesian waters, Salinas Salt Spring is the source of all your salty needs. The springs were naturally petrified with white salt. In 2004, Salinas Salt Spring started to flow again. A lot of fish and marine wildlife began to inhabit the springs. Salinas Salt Spring Located southeast of Manila, on Luzon, Laguna de Bay is the largest in land body of water in the Philippines. The bay is 356 square miles in area and about 32 miles long. Although it's the largest body of water, the bay's really shallow and poorly drained. It's a crescent-shaped basin broken by two peninsulas in the north and dotted by densely settled islands. Laguna de Bay is a fishing spot and former extension of Manila Bay that was cut off by volcanoes. All of the pictures were acquired from Prezi.com "Chocolate Hills." Wikipedia. Wikipedia, n.d.
