Bacolod Tidbits

We're fresh off our Bacolod vacay and heres a roundup of what we've been up to in my hometown. The main event was my Lola turning 86(!) which of course prompted us to do a little DIY for the fĂȘte. Making good use of old pillow cases, table runners, and wine bottles, we put up a garland and decorated the center pieces. With that, I had my needed dose of creativity fix.

Another highlight was a day trip to DSB (Don Salvador Benedicto). Le Misch had a whale of fun. What, with all the animals she saw on the way and back! Of course, our hometown sojourn will not be complete without a trip to the farm, eating sweet mangoes, and nonstop laughter with the family especially now that my little miss goes by 50 words-per-minute on average. 


  1. Ahhh! We eat mango that exact same way. We call it 'presto mango'.....and have since I was a child. Awesome.


  2. You guys did an amazing job! Loved all the pics! Looks like you had a wonderful time.

  3. Happy Birthday to your lola!!! Looks lovely, your vaca :-)

    I am terribly jealous and miss my lola!
