    Been there done that.........

    My sister read that a travel writer in a broadsheet said that if you want to travel the Philippines...the writer enumerated ten best places a traveler shouldn't miss (well i asked my sister to get that thursday copy October 20 issue of Philippine star) BACOLOD is in the list.......I hope so.................:)

    Much better if you will do your Bacolod trip near the Masskara festival...it will be like hitting two birds in one stone...............;)...Got it................

    You will see the festival of all the festival here in the Philippines....plus a sidetrip on all the great places here (not that many nman)

    So travel in October and witness the MASSKARA Festival...ok

    Well Bacolod is the land of the Hacienda and the Haciendero's.......
    I have never seen a Hacienda........
    So if you have a friend who lives in Bacolod and a hacienda...why not convince him/her for a hacienda visit......
    try to feel like a Haciendero for a Day.......isn't it good..........

    Buena...next time i go to Bacolod........like to visit your Hacienda.............;)

    Local People at work and play

    I spent the last 6 weeks in Tabao Proper, Valladolid, about 25 miles south of Bacolod. I spent me time living with a beautiful family and became one of the family. I spent my day walking along the sea and watching people live life as it should be lived. Watching kids play and fathers fish, and mothers chase kids and do the laundry. The scenery and colors of the Island are so beautiful and vivid. I visited many of the local restaurants and and learned many of the customs. I had fish and rice for breakfast, and ate at least 4 times a day. I look at many countries that do less with a whole lot more and wathch how many in the Philippines do a whole lot more with a whole lot less. And most of them are happy with life. And again I must add that I to am happy with the way I live when I am there, hopefully it will be permanent when I get back.

    Guiness Cemetery, Bacolod City

    DID YOU KNOW... that this is a private Family cemetery owned by the Luzuriaga Family and has been included in the Guiness Book of World Records as "the only cemetery in the world at the intersection of two high ways!"... Amazing huh!?
