If there's a mountain (or mountains) which I would consider my least favorite, then definitely it's the mountains of San Jose, Tarlac, namely Mt. Kawayan, Mt. Bungkol Baka and Mt. Tangisan. Our experience there was somewhat unexciting, monotonous and quite unremarkable. Never again shall I repeat that hike. Please don't get me wrong ha, the mountains there are beautiful enough and still worthy of a climb, it's just that we really had a bad experience hiking those mountains. As much as possible, I want to see how each mountain differs from one other. I usually don't climb mountains just to say I climbed that mountain. But sadly, in this hike, oh man, it felt like that.
Warning: If you don't want to read excessive whining and grouchiness about the mountains of San Jose, please leave this page immediately.

My solo wandering in the sugarland continued with a visit to Silay City, home of the 20+ well preserved ancestral houses of wealthy, politically influential (national level) families and renowned artists and intellectuals. Oh man, if you have a heart for history and culture, brace yourself as this post is quite too overwhelming!

Who would have thought that the remains of the once illustrious mansion would one day rise again to become one of Negros' most iconic landmark. Ah, the Ruins of Talisay. When I visited Negros Occidental, I made sure I won't miss it.
