Growing up, the word "Palawan" would evoke in my mind dreamy images of a mystical, sunkissed island, its lush mountain forests inhabited by diwatas and nymphs.When Cebu Pacific (the Philippines' leading domestic airline) held a super-sale of budget airfares to Puerto Princesa, Palawan's capital city, I immediately went online to purchase a pair of tickets for my husband and myself.
