Negros is known as the sugar capital of the Philippines. We will explore historical and instagrammble sites in the "sugar cities" of Silay and Talisay, where the Philippines' first bloodless revolution was hatched. We will visit old mansions that tell the province's rich colonial heritage. And over a cup of coffee or tea and some local sweets, I'll tell you the story of a brilliant war strategy that won the Negrenses their independence from Spanish colonial rule. You can even have your own keepsake of this experience as well as your other experiences in the future in a journal that I will help you make.
Il tuo host
I am a former broadcast journalist who just loves telling stories as they happen and how it happened. And one of the stories that fascinates me most is the story of a brilliant strategy that gave birth to the "Negros Republic." I enjoy showing people my province's rich cultural heritage as well as telling them about the sweet life in Negros. As a history buff and and foodie, I like exchanging stories of lessons learned in the past over a cup of homebrewed coffee and local delectable sweets. My hobbies include cooking and journaling. If food is life and memories and ideas are life's inspirations, I get to enjoy good food and preserve each memory in my journals. I find pleasure in sharing this hobby to anyone who'd like to find joy in writing as well as preserving ideas and memories for future references.

We willl end the day in Talisay looking at the glorious sunset from the window of a sugar baron's mansion ruins.
