Tinuy-An Falls: Why Go to the US When We Have Our Own “Niagara” in PH?

The magnificent Little Niagara Falls of the Philippines...

Located in Bislig, Surigao Del Sur, Tinuy-An Falls is considered as the “Country’s Most Beautiful Waterfalls.” Dubbed as the Little Niagara of the Philippines, Tinuy-an Falls is the widest waterfall in the country having a width of 95 meters.

Unlike Niagara falls, this is multi-tiered (4 levels) waterfalls with the 4th level seated into the thicket.

Going there was treacherous but once we arrived I couldn’t help but appreciate its beauty... simply stupendous...

Mini Cooper Versus Suzuki Swift: Is Suzuki Swift a Copycat of Mini Cooper?

At first glance, I thought it was a Mini-Cooper but with 4 doors. It is actually a Swift car sedan made by Suzuki.

I have seen plenty of Suzuki Swift roaming around the city and when I see one, I always ask myself, “Is this a copycat of Mini Cooper?” If you try to compare the two, you will really see a lot of similarities (exterior).

Most of the Suzuki Swift cars here in DC are automatic transmission. I am not sure if it is turbo or not, but I think it gives a driver great speed. My own “Mini” is not turbocharged, yet I could overtake with enough speed.

The Suzuki Swift used cars in DC have price tags of PHP250k to PHP 500k while Mini-Cooper (original) second-hand cars are available in not less than PHP1M.  

So, is Suzuki Swift a copycat of Mini-Cooper? I think so. But I like Mini more than Swift.
