For this Lenten season, we skipped the out-of-town getaway for we opted to stay indoors. But we are a family who loves to swim, so we can’t stop ourselves from escaping the scorching heat of summer. We were given a complimentary ticket to the Water Park of Antel Grand Village Clubhouse by my brother who purchased a property there. So on Black Saturday, we went there to enjoy a whole day water fun.
Summer is fast approaching and before I lay on the beach and bask in the sunlight, I want to start this year with a climb in Mt. 387 which is popularly known as the “Chocolate Hills of the North”. It is ringed by rolling hills and green valleys making it one of the wonderful hiking destinations in the country. I joined the group of Tahak Mountaineer headed by Mar Monge for P750 with my favorite trek buddy, the courageous and adventurous Lhen Pelenio.
Bearing its name as “City of Smiles,” Bacolod City, the capital of Negros Occidental is one of the nicest places to visit in the province of Negros. The notable Masskara Festival which is held during the third week of October draws an influx of tourists to witness its colorful and lively festival. But aside from that, the city is also known for its original “chicken inasal” and the sweet delicacy piaya.
This is the continuation of our four-day trip in Negros Island.
Coming from a wonderful visit in Bais City and the Manjuyod White Sandbar, we now set off to Sipalay City, “the Jewel of the Sugar Island”. Home to numerous dive sites, pristine beaches, shipwreck and islets that resembled Hundred Islands of Pangasinan, Sipalay City is definitely an emerging tourist destination and is another priceless gem in the province.
