Yesterday marked another milestone in Philippine History. We got the record for the most number of sky lanterns lit and flown simultaneously. And I’m so proud to say that I was part of it!

It is known as the “Seat of arts, culture and eco-tourism in Western Visayas”. It is visited by many because of its various tourist attractions.
