Bacolod City, the place I've never been to..

I have been talking about Bacolod City eversince I have learned that we will be going there.  Click here and here.  Unfortunately, for some very personal reasons, we can't join them.  I'd really love to, but can't. :(  But still, as promised, I will be sharing with you some photos which I grabbed from my sister's camera.

heavenly, right? :)

The view from the plane.. I can say, they had a very nice flight. :)

My siblings and a very close friend.. Welcome to the City of Smiles! :)

What and where they ate? :)

Bob's Restaurant

Oh look, my sister Darla, is having a feast! :) Envious! :))

 I don't know if this is also from Bob's, but the Bangus looks really yummy! :)

the Cake, but I don't think if it's from Calea.. IDK :))

The places they've been to.. :) *bitter much here, LOL*

The Bacolod City Government Center - Meet my siblings! :)

Balay Negrense

From a certain Museum? :p

My brothers, Kenny & Stephen at The Ruins.

The Ruins :)

Sorry if I have chosen very few photos.  What I have realized is that, sometimes it's NOT really the place that you've been to, but the people who you were with.  Bacolod City, I hope that someday, you'll let me see how beautiful you are, how tasty your food is, how lovely your people were!  My fingers are crossed!  See you soon, City of Smiles! :) 

Bitter No More! :)

I'm Back! :)

It's been months since my last post, and I feel guilty (somehow) since I have promised myself that I should write at least one (1) entry per month.  But for some reasons, I just really can't.  I don't even got to join my family in our supposedly trip to Bacolod City. :(  Which I will be explaining in my next post!  So for now, I am glad that I'm back! :)  Hope to see you here again! :)

Calea Cakes from Bacolod

Eversince I learned that we'll be going to Bacolod City next month, I hurriedly checked on the web on the possible places we could visit.  But what intrigued me is that, everytime I stumble upon a blog site that say a lot about the City of Smiles, the bloggers were also raving about their food.  They say that Bacolod has a lot of good ones.  Aside from their Inasal, which they are famous of, I have been reading too about the Calea Cakes.

I am into sweets too, but it came to the point when I no longer crave for such.  But I can still say that I can appreciate a very good dessert.  One of the best chocolate cakes I know of is Mer-Nel's Cake in Los BaƱos, Laguna.  Another favorite is the Mango Bravo of Conti's.  Purple Oven in Oranbo, Pasig City happens to have good cakes as well.

Upon seeing lots and lots of cakes from Calea, I have chosen three (3) desserts that I think I wanna try:

(1)  Cream Puffs (I really don't know if that's the name, LOL)

(2)  Strawberry Semi- Fredo

(3)  Fruity Cheesecake

How about you, have you tasted the cakes from Calea?  What is your favorite?  Please share your experiences, as well as the photos when you went there. :)

Bacolod City - Where to go?

I have been feeling lucky this days.  I received a phone call from my eldest sister asking for my husband's birth date as well as the kids.  I wonder, where are we going this time?  The last time she did that was when we went to Cagayan de Oro City & Bukidnon.

Our destination this time is to Bacolod City, she booked our flight and to my surprise, it'll be with the whole family.  Yey!  And so I searched on the net, looking for the possible places to visit and of course, the food to eat!  Read along, and let's see if I'll be able to visit this places next month! :)

 Ancestral House Complex

Cinco de Noviembre Marker

Balay Negrense

San Diego de Alcala Pro-Cathedral

Negros Occidental Provincial Capitol

Bacolod City Government Center

Bacolod Cathedral

This were the places I am planning to visit when I get there.  Have you been to Bacolod City?  Can you suggest other places to visit while in there?  :)

What Facebook has taught me.

These are the random things I have learned while using Facebook.

  • Give Respect. - Have you experienced seeing your News Feed flooded with your friend's status messages?  Well, I bet we have that one Facebook friend who loves updating their status 24/7.  When I experienced such, I was like, "Is this SPAM?", "Oh my, here s/he goes again!" and my eyes started to roll.. :))  But I came to realize that this person is just writing on"his/ her very own wall" and that was the time I started to not mind whenever they post anything. :) Facebook gave us two (2) options, to Hide ( a story or person) and to Delete (a friend).  Since I chose not to delete them, I opted to just hide them.  If something displeases you, just choose from the two or just let it be.  It is their wall anyway.. :)
  • When Paranoia Attacks! - You've read a status message and it hits you.. Yeah! Right in the face!!! :))  But hey, it doesn't mean that that's you or that's for you!  Sometimes, we have some cases that we can relate to and we get paranoid!  It still happens to me, but I don't make "mega reactions' over it anymore, though sometimes I feel hurt (whether that's for me or not).. Just keep this in mind, "Do what makes you happy.. As long as you're NOT stepping on anyone's foot, I think you're doing fine.. Never mind what they say.. Gusto Ko, Happy Ka!"Just keep cool and calm down. :)  Believe me, it'll save you from a lot of trouble. :D
  • Think before you post. - I know you have seen me write and post nasty remarks over someone or anything that has happened to me, and it became overly negative that made a lot of people got depressed, mad and pissed of me.  I didn't know I had such impact on this people and when someone took the courage to tell me about that, I tried my very best to change it.  Though sometimes, I still can't help it. LOL.


Contents were based solely on my experiences.  I don't intend to pin-point anyone in particular and I have tried my best to write it on a general form as to not hurt anyone who can relate on the topics I have stated.  My intention was just to write and express the things that this social networking site taught me, nothing more.  So please be kind with your comments (if there'll be)..
