I got back from Bacolod, the “city of smiles” yesterday(August 11). We stayed at Grand Regal Hotel conveniently located in front of Gaisano Mall, hosted by Mrs. Talas a very generous woman and a very great host at that.
Mom and I attended a special business event(August 8, 2007) that was coordinated by Bacolod’s Charity Prince Joery Llanera. It was a good show. I had fun.
The next two days (August 9 and 10), mom trained 30 leaders and I had a great time seeing how the training changed their outlook in life. We received a lot of good responses from them and mom said she had a lot of fun with the network leaders. 🙂
There is an eating place they call “pala-pala” or “tulahan”. You get to buy fresh seafood at the back (wet market) and have it cooked at the eateries in front. Just take your pick. The place is near the seashore, that’s why seafood comes cheap. The facade of the eateries may look like an ordinary karinderya but oh boy…. their food is great.
TIP: if you want good food, just have it cooked at an eatery where numerous people eat because I’m sure they serve YUMMMYYY food. We ate at an eatery called “Hyskos” twice.
This restaurant also serves great food. It’s cheap (compared to restaurants here in Davao that serves the same food), and very yummy. The interior of the place is good and it has a great service. (Wow! Writing about food made me hungry tonight. *growls*).
I ordered their cheese sticks… and by gum you wouldn’t say “bitin” because it’s very CHEESY (unlike other cheese sticks I know served in other restaurants here in Davao).
One dish perked my interest was the “porbidang kangkong”, because of it’s name. It’s probably “porbida” because it’s hot and spicy. Very Very yummmmyyyyyy….. !!!
I did not get to taste Bacolod’s Chicken Inasal which is pretty much popular and Bacolod’s known for that… but at least I got to be in two places that serves great food with a low price.
Till here! Have a great week ahead!!
