I decided to transfer to Bacolod in 2007 because of work. It was only after a week of staying in Bacolod that i learned that I am already in Negros.

My first stop was The Luxur Place,my home for my first 2 weeks. Impressive to know that I will be in staying in a hotel, but not really, finding out that the hotel is the entrace of TP.

I’ve moved into several apartments in 3 years, 5 to be exact. Lumer, Javellana Apartment 1 and 2, then in Taculing and finally in Mountain View.

Aside from my apartment hopping, I’ve been to several places in Negros. Places that may be far from Bacolod City but places that are really nice!

  • Cadiz – Lakawon Island Resort
  • Sagay – (just a road trip)
  • Manapla – (just for the puto)
  • Victoria City – (just a road trip)
  • Talisay City – Nature’s Park
  • Silay City – Balaring Seafood Restaurants
  • Bago City – Buenos Aires Mountain Resort and Pataan Mountain Resort
  • Murcia – Mambukal Mountain Resort
  • Hinigaran – Canonoy’s Beach
  • Kabangkalan – Sinulog Festival and Zaycoland Resort & Hotel
  • Dumaguete – Kidnap Day 1 (a very long roadtrip from Bacolod to Dumaguete and back in 1 day)

If I’m not home, here are the places you may want to check to find me (and why) :
