Last year alone, a killer earthquake shook a southern province called Bohol, only to be eclipsed a little over a month later by monster typhoon Haiyan, which, by most accounts, was apocalyptic in its wrath and intensity. The whole world watched as the ravaged province of Leyte, particularly Tacloban City, slowly revealed the extent of damage, destruction and death wrought by this mega typhoon. But as many also know, the Philippines is a beautiful paradise too.
