Kanaka is a priceless beauty
Batanes must truly be a magical island
We are utterly speechless!
Our plan is to spend a year in Batanes...hopefully in Kanaka's company!
As beautiful as the place where she was born and raised
We have truly outdone ourselves this time! We are reaching for the stars in the distant reaches of the universe as we declare our crush for Kanaka Elcano! She is the reigning Miss Universe Philippines-Batanes, and by her own words she says she is a “full-blooded Ivatan, born and raised in Batanes”. Her pride for her heritage is truly inspiring, but her beauty is even more so—it rivals even that of the God-given wonders of the land of her birth, a part of our country we often romanticize for good reason. You know what our ultimate dream is now? To live in that lighthouse in Batanes on Marlboro Hills overlooking the sea…with Kanaka as our partner for life, like a scene straight out of a timeless novel. *Sigh*
