It was taken off the list because they say it was being ilegally advertized.
how are people suppose to know about voting if they are not informed about voting chances to begin with?

I do not feel it was ilegal as it was not paid for advertizing now if paid advertizing that is different but to inform about voting for it is okay why not we have a right to choice what we like and if people want to campaign for things it is also their right again.

I think it was a sad thing to be removed from the list.

What's this supposed to mean, Olintaha?  How was it possible to involve vote buying in the online voting?  And manipulative vote?  Was the website hacked by Filipinos so Chocolate Hills can be in the top 7?  I have to admit I have not been following the website to know the developments and when I searched, Inquirer didn't give any reason to connote that there was "vote buying and manipulative voting".  Please help me in understanding what you meant kay galibog ko why Chocolate Hills wa removed from the list.  I am pretty sure you know more than I do to say this.  Salamat po!

The message is clear ---- VOTE BUYING & OTHER MANIPULATIVE VOTING HAS NO PLACE IN THE SEARCH FOR THE NEW 7 WONDERS.  Unta mag bag-o na ta!

Tingali somebody needs to cough up an amount so that Chocolate Hills will be back on the nomination list. After all, its a for profit corporation man kaha.  ;D

Is it wrong to campaign for votes?  I mean, I am seeing this game or however we call this as like American Idol.  Contestants ask for the people's vote so why can't we campaign for votes?  And in fairness, Chocolate Hills really deserve to be in the top 7.  Still confused. hahahahahah

In my opinion, na ilad lagi ta sa prinsipyo, pero wala ta ma-ilad sa kwarta. Wala ta ma gansi sa Kwarta. Magpagansi ba gud ang Bol-anon sa kwarta nga hinuktan man ug lanot kining atong kwarta. Ato man ni nga kina-iya nga pugong gyud sa kwarta kay biyahero lagi ang kasagaran kanato, mao nga dili ta waldas. Tan-awa ang inyong mga lola, ang ilang kwarta gi putos ug panyo, ka pila pa gi pilo ug gi lokot, gi suk-suk pa gyud sa bra.

Sila ang gansi kay wala silay na kuha nga sapi sa mga Bol-anon. Nahago lang sila ug tally sa atong votes ug na upaw ug samot ang ilang committee sa pag tally sa atong milyon milyon nga votes. Kadtong mga mi bayad nga countries sila ang na ilad.

Bisan mi gasto ta ug plete ni Dan Lim, that was a trip worthwhile kay naka visita god siya sa America unya naka himamat siya sa mga Bol-anon didto. Feeling celebrity pod si Dan Lim, so mura to ug vacation niya. Bisan dili siya mag bawn OK ra kay daghang mo sponsor niya didto nga mga dato' nga Bol-anon. Feel honored pod sila nga naka sponsor ug mayor sa Bohol. Magpa kodak-kodak dayon sila ug ipang hambog dayon nila ang mga pictures. His trip could draw balikbayans enough to close all flights to Bohol this coming July.

Ang mga ubang tourist spot sa nasod dili gusto nga madeclare nga one of the 7 wonders ang Chocolate Hills kay ma down and ilang tourism didto. Ang flow sa tourist gikan sa local ug foreign adto na man sa Chocolate Hills. Ang mga beaches sa Bohol is competing Boracay. Hoping nga ipadayon and international airport sa Panglao aron more tourist will come directly to Bohol.

Chocolate Hills back in the race for New 7 Wonders of Nature



Cebu Daily News
First Posted 08:18:00 05/03/2008


BOHOL’S famed Chocolate Hills is back in the running to become one of the New 7 Wonders of Nature after contest organizers took it out from the final list of nominees two weeks ago.

Bohol Gov. Erico Aumentado said the Chocolate Hills was put back in the list by the New 7 Wonders of Nature (N7W), a non-government organization, which launched the search, after he complied with the contest’s final requirement, which was to set up an official support committee for Bohol's natural wonder.

Aumentado appointed the Bohol Provincial Tourism Council as the official nominator of the Chocolate Hills as a requirements of the N7W.

The NGO also required a commitment of support from the local government unit (LGU).

Aumentado said the LGU support group would organize a global working committee which would support Chocolate Hills to be part of the new seven wonders of nature.

“They (N7W) had restored Chocolate Hills and the previous votes were still counted after we complied with everything (requirements),” Aumentado said.

The Chocolate Hills consist of at least 1,268 domed limestone hills that turn brown under the summer sun and are spread in the towns of Carmen, Batuan and Sagbayan, Bohol.

The hills measuring 30 to 50 meters high have already been considered as among the National Geological Monuments of the country because of its scientific value and geographical uniqueness.

Aumentado said he appreciated the support from the Cebu provincial government and President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo.

“It would be an honor for Bohol if Chocolate Hills could make it to the top of the seven wonders list. Not only will it promote Bohol's tourism industry but also the Philippines,” Aumentado said.

The nomination, according to the governor, can also promote the country as a favorite eco-tourism destination in the world.

Cebu Provincial Board Member Victor Maambong asked the Cebuanos to cast their votes for the Chocolate Hills.

He said it would be a source of pride and a boost to local tourism if the Chocolate Hills were to become one of the seven wonders of the world.

“It is not only a (source of) national pride but (it will) also (boost) the prospect of promoting eco-tourism in the country...,” said Maambong in a draft resolution that will be submitted to the PB session on Monday.

If approved, Maambong wanted copies of his resolution sent to all the barangays in the province and the Department of Tourism.

Aside from the Chocolate Hills, Maambong said the Tubbataha Reef in the Sulu Sea and the Underground River in Puerto Princesa, Palawan also deserve the Cebuanos’ support.

The reef is a Unesco World Heritage Site because of its globally renowned bio-diversity. Its two atolls lie on the Cagayan ridge and encompasses roughly 100,000 hectares of corals and over a thousand species of marine life.

In the initial results of the online polls for the New 7 Wonders of Nature, the Tubbataha Reef ranked 7th place while the Chocolate Hills was 9th. The Puerto Princesa Underground River was number 20.

The need to massively campaign on the local destinations especially the Chocolate Hills was also among the concerns discussed in a local security meeting called by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo at the Malacañang sa Sugbu during her visit last Monday.

Those who wants to cast their votes for the Philippine's entries can log on to www.new7wonders.com

“It is fitting that we encourage and exhort all Cebuanos to cast their votes for the new seven wonders of nature in the world,” said Maambong in his draft resolution.
