Xu Líng “Edgar” Feng: A Chinese National Who Conquered the Philippine Islands

for the Best pinoy at heart category

Meet Xu Líng Feng, a Chinese national who professes to be a true Filipino at heart, and has travelled across all the 81 provinces of the Philippines.

Edgar, as his Philippine friends call him, loves photography so much that it led him to explore our archipelagic nation of 7,107 islands.

He is born to Taiwanese parents and was raised in the Philippine lands, but when he turned 18, he decided to trace his roots and culture back to his homeland.

After a while, Edgar felt alienated in his own country, that is why he came back to the Philippines and decided to stay here for good.

In 2010, Edgar joined a group of travelers from pinasmuna.com and contributed his works as a photographer.

It is then, Edward came to challenge himself to tick off all the Philippine provinces in his list, in hopes of promoting Philippine tourism through his amazing photographs.

On November 16, 2014, Edward successfully ticked off his last province, Romblon.

To this day, he continues to explore every nook and cranny in the Philippines to give Filipinos more than 81 reasons why they, too, should choose the Philippines.

“But there’s so much more to see here in the Philippines. More festivals to experience. More food to taste. More people to meet. I’m never gonna get tired of the Philippines,” he said.

It is uplifting to know that our beautiful islands are inspiring foreign guests to start their life anew in our country, just like in the case of Edgar.
