Never Pa Ako Nakarating Ng Palawan. Feeling Ko May Sumpa Ang Lugar Na Yun!

Oo, totoo. Never pa! As per experience.

Twice na akong nag-book ng flight to Palawan. Yung mga seat sale na months or years before the actual flight, yun ang mga nabu-book ko. Pinagpa-planuhan usually ng barkada ng ex ko. Maayos naman ang lahat.

Until there will come a time na magbi-break kami ng ex ko. At syempre, dahil nga awkward na yun, hinahayaan na lang na hindi magamit yung airfare. Hahayaan na lang na maging bakante ang upuan sa eroplano. Hahayaan na lang na matuloy ang mga friends sa lakwatsa. Ang ending, hindi na ako nakakapunta.

Hindi ko na makikita yung underground river. Wala nang Puerto Princesa. Walang nightlife. Wala lahat.

Wala ka na ngang jowa, wala ka pang Palawan trip.

Pero siguro naman, this time – with AIR ASIA, makakarating na ako ng Palawan, The Last Frontier. At hindi na ako magka-cancel pa.

Mapuntahan ko man lang yung pearl farm na pinuntahan ni Daphne.

Responsible Traveling and Palawan’s Pearl Farming Industry
up next on AirAsia RedTalks with Daphne

MANILA – As AirAsia continues to promote #HowIFly campaign, the world’s best low cost carrier recently visited a pearl farm in Palawan for the upcoming new episode of AirAsia RedTalks with Daphne.

AirAsia launched the #HowIFly campaign, a social media advocacy that encourages and educates everyone on how to be responsible travelers as they discover new destinations.

Palawan known as “The Last Frontier”, is a familiar travel destination as it is home to rich rainforests, scenic diving sites, primeval caves and beautiful beaches. Unknown to many, Palawan also hosts one of the largest areas of pearl farming – a unique industry in the country. This makes a necessity for the local community to be a prime mover of sustainability to balance conservation and progress. One of the key players in pearl farming in Palawan is Jewelmer, a leading jewelry company that takes sustainability at the heart of its operations.
Learn more about the beauty of pearl farming, the role of the business community on environmental protection and the AirAsia’s #HowIFly campaign at the next episode of AirAsia’s “Red Talks with Daphne”, hosted by award-winning TV host and producer, Daphne Oseña-Paez. Entitled Destination: Harmony, it will talk about pearl production, and delves into the ongoing campaign to protect Palawan’s marine biodiversity through responsible eco-tourism and the AirAsia’s continued advocacy in educating people to be responsible travelers.

Red Talks with Daphne’s 5th episode will be available on AirAsia Philippines’ Facebook page at www.facebook.com/airasiaph on May 20, 2017.

AirAsia, voted the world’s best low cost carrier for eight consecutive years by Skytrax, produced a 6-part web series featuring some of Asia’s best-kept attractions, rich cultural heritage, and inside stories about people and the airline that broke travel norms and made flying possible for everyone across Asia and beyond.
