Best Shopping Malls in Bacolod City, A Visit to Ayala Mall

Best Shopping Malls in Bacolod City, A Visit to Ayala Mall

FEATURED, THE ROOSTER CROWS AT 4AM!
After visiting SM City Bacolod, my wife and I headed out via jeepney to the North Terminal in our quest to find the best shopping malls in Bacolod City. After making inquiries at the local McDonald's, we decided a visit to the Ayala Mall was in order. Once at the North Terminal we would be able to catch a ride to "The District" where the new Ayala Mall was located. My wife and I had been using the cheaper jeepney services available in the "City of Smiles" rather than taking a taxi. We did use a cab upon our arrival in Bacolod and our driver informed us that most taxis were charging 300 pesos, almost seven US Dollars,  to the Ayala Mall located outside of the city. And that's for a one way trip. (more…)

My asawa and I recently visited Bacolod, the "City of Smiles" to celebrate my spouse's upcoming birthday. During the course of our sojourn, I came to the conclusion that Bacolod offers more senior job opportunities vs. Iloilo, where we do the bulk of our shopping. In over five years of living in the Philippines I have never encountered anyone but young Pinays or Pinoys who held management positions in any of the major chains stores or franchise fast food outlets, such as McDonald's, while in Iloilo City.

Bacolod City Shopping Spree Gets Off to Shaky Start

FEATURED, THE ROOSTER CROWS AT 4AM!
My asawa is observing a birthday soon. To celebrate, we planned to visit the "City of Smiles,"Bacolod, but our shopping spree in Bacolod City gets off to a shaky start as I feared we would not even make it on time to the Super Cat Ferry in Iloilo that would whisk us to our destination. My spouse and I have been married for almost 15 years and despite nine years of that marriage spent in the United States, my Fililpina wife still embraces "Filipino Time" on more occasions than I care to recall.   (more…)

Bacolod to San Carlos City. My wife and I had boarded a Ceres bus in Bacolod which was headed to the ferry located in San Carlos City. We had front row seats and a grand view. Our driver, a Mr. Clean look-alike, was courteous and professional. I had no doubt that he would get us to our eventual destination in Cebu City safely. (more…)
