First Glimpse of the Sugar Capital of the Philippines, Negros Occidental

The Ruins of Talisay, streets of Bacolod City, The Capitol, Bacolaodiat Festival, sugarcane plantations, rice terraces, the majestic view of Mount Kanlaon, Inasal...- The Sugar Capital of the Philippines has a lot more to offer than what I've expected!

Yes.I have been already explored Negros Occidental! 

This trip was planned last year after I've transferred here in Western side of Cebu -job assignment reshuffling :). Full schedule and long vacation/rest in Alabang(MM) due to major operation (acute appendicitis) caused some delays. I am currently staying here in Toledo City that exploring Negros Occidental is very much possible and less time effort. RORO ships and Fast-crafts going to neighboring San Carlos Port are available every 30 minutes. Traveling via RORO may take 1.5 to 2 hours and 30-45 minutes via fast craft.

Morion's PhotoGallery 101: Alive Sinulog Festival 2012!

Photographs taken on January 15, 2012 along the streets of Cebu City during Sinulog Festival Grand Parade. This is my second time to experience Sinulog fever and still the feeling of being part of the celebration in honor of the Senyor Santo Nino  is truly marvelous!
These snapshots shows the different sides of the festivity in the eye of Traveling Morion while joining the sea of devotees in the streets of Cebu City
 "Everyone, everything’s Alive! "

December 17, 2011| Starbucks at SM City Cebu enjoying free wi-fi while waiting for colleagues who are busy shopping for exchange gifts.

Still waiting for more than one hour. After finishing regular size Starbucks cold coffee drink, I transfer to Gelatissimo stall  and tried one of their "Gelato ice creams."
