The Ruins + Announcements

Our flight back to Manila was immediately a day after my uncle's burial. I wish we could have stayed longer to spend more time with my grandmother and my uncle's family, but sadly everyone had to go to work. Our flight was 7pm so we had enough to time to go around. We arrived at Bacolod around 1 pm, we fetched my Aunt at a souvenir shop. Of course we also had to go in and buy food! 

Sorry I don't have a picture of the inside of the store--just me in front. heehee. Oh and love the new city hall.

We then went to Bob's for a quick snack which turned out to be heavy eating. Lol.

Wish I lived in the 1960's. Hehe.

Bread shopping!

Bought 3 garlic bread (my fave!), 2 black sambo and 1 poppy seed muffin.

Cheezy potato, Fish & Chips, Ceasars Salad

Black Sambo reminds me of my childhood. Delicious:)

Before going to the airport, my Aunt and Uncle brought us to a heritage site called The Ruins. It's breathtakingly beautiful. Too bad they had to burn it down during the 2nd world war so that the Japanese won't make it as their headquarters. The details on the pillars are so intricate and exquisite. Entrance fee is just P40. Not bad.

  10. I am super happy you found some bowler hats na! :) I recently bought a brown woven bowler hat from YRYS. I highly suggest you check their stores out. They have 20's-inspired hats, bowler hats (from felt to woven) and some boater hats as well. Sad part though is they have them in tacky colors or the ones that are decent are always sold out.

  11. I love these photos! The ruins look so beautiful.

    Love your outfit as well as always!
