Quaint and Happy Negros Occidental!

This is late, but I realized I haven’t been able to blog about our one-week vacation in my dear hometown in Negros Occidental. So now that this blog is already kind of of done with its hiatus, I’m going to post some of the best things we enjoyed while we were in the city of smiles. 🙂

The last time we were there, about 3 years ago, Tin was pregnant. We didn’t get to enjoy so much, even though it was Masskara season, because she was a month shy from delivering Saab. So pretty much what we did was stay at home, visit the kamag-anaks and smell the fresh bukid air.

This time, we had no other reasons not to enjoy the quaint province. I made sure I was able to bring Tin to the places I didn’t get to bring her the last time. I hope she enjoyed every bit of second we were there, because I sure did.
