I am bound for Iloilo! I already plotted my schedule at work and I was initially wondering how I was going to file for leave. But I’m glad that it’s all set and I’ll be flying on Thursday. I was able to visit Iloilo 10 years ago but that wouldn’t label it as a vacation. We boarded a plane for Iloilo and went straight to the pier to ride a ferry going to Bacolod.

I’m not also sure what to expect because of the budget – I haven’t allocated any funds for this trip and I’m still paying off some dues because of my recent trips abroad. Oh well, bahala na.

This Saturday, I will be joining the Visayas Blog Summit and the Philippine Blog Awards 2010 – Visayas Leg. This is pretty exciting because I’ll be able to meet other bloggers again from around the country.

Visayas Blogging Summit 2010 and The Philippine Blog Awards Visayas 2010

The Visayas Blogging Summit 2010 aims to gather bloggers from the Visayas. Their goal is to explore how blogging impacts society, business and politics. — http://www.visayasbloggers.com/

The Philippine Blog Awards – Visayas, recognizes blogs around the region in their chosen fields of interests.  — http://www.philippineblogawards.com.ph/

This will be a great convergence of people who share the same passion. I got a letter saying I was nominated for Best Travel Blog which was a surprising treat when I opened my Inbox. I’m glad enough to get a badge for it. hehe.


We will be staying at the Ong Bun Pension House which I think is a great option for those budget travelers. So far, the website pictures look good. I’ll be able to check out the actual guesthouse/inn/hostel this Thursday so I’ll share my comments then.
