mga sis mga 6am dating namin ng bacolod. if ever ba na we decide to straight to saltimboca, how do we commute papuntang ancestral house and the ruins? jeep jeep lang ba?

we will be in bacolod next week (coming from iloilo/guimaras)... should we rent a jeep ba when touring the city (my friend suggested an itinerary starting from manapla town, then going to canetown, silay yhen bacolod city) or can we commute?

would all jeepney drivers know these areas well? ang worry ko kasi... baka mag-rent nga kami jeep pero mawawala lang din kami half the time kasi they're not familiar with the tourist sights (though malamang naman din hindi, if taga-dun sila)

how far is manapla town? and would you know the day rate if we hire a jeep?


KENOY... saltimboca na rin kami. I computed kasi, even if we stayed in L'Fisher Chalet, mas mura pa rin ang family room sa Saltimboca (and we can get another room pa, kung sikip kami, for the price we're going to pay at L'Fisher chalet). I read nga kasi from michi's blog na Circle Inn was far from the restos and we'd rather we're able to do things on foot din... and not rely on tricycles all the time just to be able to eat or shop for some emergency whatever (like cakes for a sudden sweet tooth, haha)

^manapla is 1 and 1/2 hours away from bacolod. you will pass by talisay, silay, and victorias pa. it's very easy to commute in bacolod as there are only two popular streets where the happenings are - lacson st. and aquino drive. the taxi drivers are accommodating naman.

just got back from our iloilo-bacolod trip


we sort of travelled in comfort since we have kids so we hired na an Avanza taxi for our Mambukal day, and our Sightseeing Day (from Manapla nga)... sadness lang, the minute we arrived at Saltimboca, it started raining!!! so we couldn't hike up to the 7th falls at mambukal... and it was raining when we were at the ruins


BUT

super we had the privilege of a tour of the house of Monsignor Gaston... the house where the filmed Oro Plata Mata (the one near Chapel of the Cartwheels)... amazing talaga!!! Loved all the little trivia I learned from the ancestral house visits... and we went home with 5 different butterscotch brands (and wala pa dun yung supposedly the best)


food wise though.... the best for us yung sa Manokan Country (Nena's beth).... second yung sa d' breakers bar and restaurant sa victorias city... the rest were okay lang

and definitely... the manapla puto sold at deco's is soooooooooooo far from the real thing, coz the real thing is soooo light and once-you-pop-you-cant-stop :D

isa pa pala... super I loved going to VMC and smelling brown sugar in the air. Parang ansarap to live in a community that smells like that, haha

beforeiturn25, you definitely  have to try Bob's Cafe (chicken sate or sate babe), Calea for their cakes, Bacolod Chicken House/Aida's Manukan for the inasal.

beforeiturn25... mambukal would require at least a whole day, para hindi sayang yung travel time and fare mo :)  better nga if you can hook up with other people kasi there are so many things to do there
