The Tagalog world Mabuhay, meaning “long life”, is used at toasts (Cheers!), political rallies, for praising distinguished people and for welcoming guests. It was used a lot over the weekend on Palawan Island, home of the Puerto Princesa Underground River, which was inaugurated yesterday as one of the New7Wonders of Nature.

“I wish everyone a joyful celebration, as I hereby officially inaugurate Puerto Princesa Underground River as one of the world’s New7Wonders of Nature! Mabuhay!” said Bernard Weber, Founder-President of New7Wonders, as he unveiled a bronze plaque commemorating the election by a global vote of the Philippines site.

The inauguration was followed by a gala evening at the Puerto Princesa City baywalk that included music, dance, speeches and fireworks.
