Back To Kabankalan & Bacolod

This post is once again long overdue. Last weekend September 5th-7th, Tim, my brother Rino John and I once again went to Kabankalan and Bacolod. We attended Alex’s birthday. Alex is Tim’s nephew. We had so much fun! Alex now likes me. The first time that I went there he kinda didn’t. Lol. I got to meet Tim’s brother and brother in law for the first time too and they were really nice.

Lasallian Alma Mater Hymn – Reggae Version

If you’re a frequent visitor of my blog you’ll know that I am an avid listener of reggae music and I am one of Bob Marley’s millions of fans. Reggae music makes me groove to it. Reggae music helps me chill and relax. So when Tim shared with me a song from his phone I was immediately curious as to who sang it and what the title of the song is. The beat is great and only after I listened to the lyrics well and after Tim told me did I knew that it was the reggae version of the Lasallian Alma Mater Hymn.

Kabankalan!

Last Saturday, 23rd of May, I finally got the chance to go to Kabankalan. Tim’s hometown. I went there along with my little brother Rino John and Tim of course. I got to meet Tim’s parents for the 3rd time and his sisters the first time (except for Dainah because we met a couple of times in the past when she went here in Iloilo). We stayed there until the 26th so that’s about 4 days and 3 nights. I loved Kabankalan! Not only did Tim’s family and relatives welcome us at their homes but they also gave us a tour of the city. I didn’t know that they have a palace-like city hall. But you have to see it to believe it. It looks more expensive than our Capitol actually. Honest. And Kabankalan is a very clean city. They have clean streets. Yes I now Iloilo is also clean but Kabankalan’s cleaner. Maybe its because Kabankalan is still more rural than urban. Their cathedral is also a lovely structure. It won’t rival Jaro Cathedral but still it’s a beautiful place to worship the Lord. We heard Mass there last Sunday.

Boracay – Day 1

So today I’m going to write about our first day in Boracay. This post has been long overdue but I had a ton of tasks to do and I also did some studying (for what, you don’t have to know right now..haha). Boracay is the most popular summer getaway here in the Philippines and it’s also popular with tourists from other countries because of its unique white sand beach. Boracay is actually known as the ” Paradise Island of the Philippines.” And if you’ve ever been there you already know why. To those who haven’t yet well you have to go there to know why. LOL. For now feel free to read my Boracay experience.
