Bacolod City: Of Muscovado Heritage
Travel dates: April 22-25, 2015
In line of the annual get-together of pharmacists around the Philippines, we attended the Philippine Pharmacists’ National Convention 2015 held at Bacolod City. Along with my fellow pharmacists, we ventured into the Capital of Manok Inasal and Maskara Festival.
To end the day, we went to the The Ruins, an old mansion of one of the biggest sugar cane plantation owners back in the day. The Ruins in Talisay City was also dubbed as the Taj Mahal of the province, if not of the Philippines. The mansion was made by Don Mariano for his wife, Maria Braga, just like the story of why Taj Mahal was built.
As we end our first day in the mesmerizing, Sugar cane-ful Bacolod City, we settled in our hotel as we ready (then snore) for the next day.
Next stop is the Hofileña Museum.
