Made of Food and Color

Friends say that Bacolod is all about food.

They were right!

In my 3-day visit, days were filled with food, food ... and food.  Night and Day. A weekend of sumptuous indulgence which I tremendously enjoyed despite the unwanted pounds I brought back home to Manila. Veered away from usual malls, and instead explored for hole-in-the wall spots in every nook and cranny.  I quickly transformed into a bottomless pit with having tried the long list of dining recommendations thrown my way prior to the trip. 

Now, I affirm what was said.  Bacolod is all about GREAT food.  A superb delight to the palate, coupled with good service  and appealing dining rates (cheaper than Manila).

Yet, there is more.  An addition I share aside from what has been said .... A feast to the sense of sight this time.

Should you have the chance to visit Bacolod one day, I recommend that you walk along the streets (instead of ride). Go slow and savour the sights.  Then you'll see ... Bacolod is a PLAY OF COLOR.
