For winning the Lonely Planet Photo Contest and for being an advocate of the Philippines.
Thank you.

Not even in the high places Filipinos are greeting in mabuhay...its more of "hello poh" or "hi po, sir"

do not misinform.

i often hear the word MABUHAY used by the higher echelons of the society and during formal occasions...
