Lagaw sa Bacolod

(December 20,2011)

From Iloilo, we arrived around 4 pm in Bacolod City after taking the RORO trip from Dumangas. We immediately went to SM City Bacolod to have our bags kept at the traveller’s lounge. At exactly 5 pm, we were finally settled. We did not really have any plan on what to do in Bacolod City since we were not able to follow our itinerary. I was afraid too of pushing with the plan on going to Silay for we might not be able to get back early and be late for the night trip to Dumaguete City.

I finished 1 pecho, 1baticulon, 1 softdrink and 2 rice and paid only less than Php150.00.

To people who doesn’t know much about the geography of Region VI they would think that Capiz and Cadiz are two same places, they would even think they had mispronounced the third letter “d” to “p” or the other way around.

But no, Cadiz and Capiz are two different places, they are even far from each other that they are separated by a water body. While Cadiz is a city and is in Negros Occidental, Capiz on the other hand is in the Panay Island and is a province. So the two really are not the same.

Since childhood up to this writing, our family keeps on going almost yearly to this humble place, who wouldn’t if it is the hometown of your mom right?  Continue reading “Cadiz, not Capiz. :D”
