The first plan was to cross to Bacolod today then head straight to San Carlos City to get on a ferry boat back to Cebu. But it seems too much of a stretch, and so we decided to have an overnight stay at Bacolod.
We’re on Tri-Star shipping this time. They’re much cheaper than Montenegro. But for an OC kind of person, the pier/port system of Dumanggas, Iloilo / Bacolod can be chaotic / unsure. It’s like you just wait there and hope that you still have a slot in the ferry because they prioritize the cargo trucks. So if you’re running on a schedule, you better be there very early.
We’re a creature of habit. So we went back to Nature’s Village Resort – my or our most favorite accommodation in this trip. It’s actually in Talisay City (not Bacolod), 2 blocks away from the Ayala’s The District. I guess we’re too tired to try another place, etc.
Cake shops every where is something unique in Bacolod. Iloilo does not have that many cake shops. Thankfully Cebu has not that much too (but the Jap cakes at Mickie’s Cafe is !!!), maybe cupcakes?.:) Unfortunately, we’re too lazy to go around and we ended up again in Calea.
