Sipaway Island Adventure

Going to Sipaway island is something that we could never forget. It's a place of comfort, rest from the maddening crowd and feel the gentle breeze. Oh how I love to go back to this place. We loved and enjoyed this cool island. In going to the place, you need to observe and follow the way. Here are some tips: 1. Take a bus from Bacolod going to San Carlos City. After 2 hours and a half you will reach the place. 2. Go down when you reach San Carlos City, then take a tricycle going to the place where you can take a boat that can bring you to the island. 3. Then talk to the person in charge and get the cheapest fare. 4. There are choices when you want to stay, there are cottages that are cheaper though but not that safe. There is one that can give you the best stay although it's quite expensive. Try to look at the pictures below.

Korean Food

Eating Korean food is something my family desired to eat if there is a chance. Here in Bacolod City, Philippines food is everywhere. You can eat something spicy, something vegies or pizza. Whatever you like you can come and dine together with your family and friends. Somehow, eating is not only a hobby but an enjoyable to be together and mingle with each other. Try to look at the pictures below. You will know exactly if it's spicy and delicious or not at all. Korean cuisine is also known here in the city since many Korean come and study the English language. Anyhow, their groceries were also brought to the Philippines and many Pinoys in all walks of life enjoy buying and enjoying their food. We loved their style of enticing the customers. The owner would give free Kimchi and vegies to lighten the spicy food. We desired to come back because of the hospitality of the owner. I guess, many people are coming one at a time and taste the best known kimchi in town.

Bonding with Cousins in loilo City



We had a great time visiting Iloilo City after the celebration of the New Year. Our cousin invited us to visit their place and we had a time together. Our kids were able to do some bonding moment with his children. There were 18 of us from Bacolod. Our sister sponsored our expenses. We brought 2 cars and everyone was excited for the adventure. When we reach Iloilo, sad to say, we had no place to sleep since all of the hotels were closed. It was January 2, 2016. We roamed around the city and looked for a place to dine together but almost 98% were closed and the remaining 2% were full of people eating their dinner. We decided to stay in the house of our cousin. And the bonding continued... the kids have their own bonding moment and the cousins had another bonding experience. The next day, we went to a known place. It is a place to relax, at the same time kids enjoyed to row the boat, touching the yellow python and climbing the wall.
