Back to Manila from Bacolod via Philippine Airlines

Name of Trip: The Negros Island Navigation 2009
Date: October 18-21, 2009
Destination: Bacolod/Talisay/Silay cities & Murcia, Negros Occidental and Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental
Travel via: Air (Philippine Airlines), Land (van, tricycle and Ceres Liner bus)

Bye Bacolod! See you again soon...

We packed our things and Mang Jhun (our driver during Masskara Festival) drove us to Bacolod-Silay International Airport. But before we proceed to the airport, we went first to different locations to buy pasaluibongs (see previous blog). The airport was located in Silay City which is 15 kilometers from Bacolod city. It was relatively new compared to the old Singcang airport. This terminal was opened 4 years ago. We thanked Mang Jhun for his accommodating during our stay in Bacolod.

Do you know this FA (flight attendant)?

he is a Starstruck Batch 1 alumni, Anton Dela Paz

Our flying time was supposed to be at 50 minutes but due to traffic at the airport (numerous take off and landings at the runaway), our flight was lengthened to 20 minutes. My nephew who was seated beside the window was busy taking photos in which I do not know where we are until I saw these:

It was indeed fun with my family on our Negros Island adventures. Most especially on our visit to my favorite Masskara Festival which makes that year more memorable. Aiming for another Masskara festival in many years to come! 

Damo gid nga Salamat Negros! :)
