Again, Bacolod pictures
More shitty amateur photography from yesterday:
Had lunch at a place called Calea, which Bacolod natives say has the best cakes in the whole island. The bratwurst and kraut I ordered was so-so.
The ice cream cake was a better experience. Then again, how can you put together ice cream *and* cake and not get something that's fucking awesome?
Afterwards, I went to the Negros provincial capitol, mostly to walk off my heavy lunch:
There were a couple of carabao statues, which was odd because (a) Negros takes a lot of pride in its sugar industry, not in their rice fields; and, (b) the dude walking with the carabao is naked.
The statue on the other end of that lagoon, on the other hand, features a girl, who is not naked. Neither is her carabao.
Between the carabao statues and the palm trees, the plaza is very UPLB.
There was a cool sculpture on display at the plaza's front gate, created by a renowned Bacolod sculptor whose name I stupidly did not bother to remember.
The Negros Occidental capitol in Bacolod.
Later, I went back to Calea to meet up with Luz
to pig out again. I left my camera at the hotel, so I had to use my mobile phone to take pictures:
She had a pastrami sandwich, which she wasn't particularly happy with. Our pastries weren't much better-- we both found them too sweet. I hate to say this, but Calea's in Bacolod? Totally overrated.
Also had dinner with Pon
last night, at Bacolod Chicken House, and I forgot my camera again. I liked the inasal from Lion's Park
from the other day better.
