A Day in Bacolod

I felt like I was in the amazing race last week with trips to Boracay-Bacolod and Kalibo. I think it's quite funny how I've been managing getting on a flight on time and how I've been keeping to my speaking time so I don't go overtime. But I definitely do not wish to get left behind on any flight I'm going to take. Hassle yun, plus it's going to mess up my schedule. Time management is key.

I was quite excited about my trip to Bacolod since I've never been there. A former colleague is Ilonggo and all he could talk about is his hometown. How great the food is, the many gimmick places, the sites to see, all the beer you'd end up drinking when you are there etc. etc. I never got to see and do any of those since I was couped up most of the day at a convention and I only managed to go around SM during lunch. Bummer.

Here's the first thing I saw when I got off the plane (the weather was a tad bit gloomy) -


And then a rainbow!


Bacolod's famous for batchoy.


Managed to snap a photo of this church on the way back to the airport.


Bumawi na lang ako sa pasalubong.


And I also ate a looootttt.


A day in Bacolod = +2 pounds on my weight.

I hope to be back someday!

  1. the church is san sebastian cathedral, if i remember right. the cathedral was built of limestone and coral blocks, quarried from Guimaras, after nine years of construction in 1885.

    (yes, i miss bacolod too. haaay.)

  2. @jester-in-exile - ahhh yun pala yung name ng church, sayang di man lang ako nakababa para makita yung loob. We were already rushing to the airport. Sana makabalik ulit ako.
