to the highlands

after several posts on colors and faces, let's go uphill the highlands of Negros Occidental. this will be our final trip in this province. this province has the most number of chartered cities in the Philippines.we are going to the place that i've never been to in this province of Negros Occidental. i canceled my trip here twice because of heavy rain shower.but because my father recommended me to visit this place, then this place might is special.

I wish na makakita and maka-experience ng sugarcane harvest. at kung panu ang process ng pag manufacture nito. I hope someday. ganda kaya ng bacolod. halos lahat ng lugar dyan cities na dahil malaki ang area, i guess that's the reason.

Roads are really nice.. Hats of to it....

Lawstude said...

di pa ko nakakita ng tubuhan. palayan at maisan ang madalas ko makita. ayos ang trip mo kasi ang gaganda ng roadside view.

I love Negros... an island where people always smile... an island full of poor but hard working sugarcane workers...
It is really a live full of harships...

Highlands translates to "mataas na lupa" which reminds me a place in Manila..hehe.

Those were fresh sugarcanes.. wonder if you visited the sugar factories too. I imagined it would smell so sweet with all the sugar being made.

thanks for sharing. take care.

beero said...

ang dami talagang tubuhan na madadaanan going to bacolod. parang kahit saan eh may tubuhan sa negros.

"this province has the most number of chartered cities in the Philippines"

Funny you mentioned that. Yes they've got a lot of cities in Negros because the town's income categorized them to become cities. Sadly, its infrastructure doesn't reflect an urban setting.

Parang bigla tuloy ako nag-crave ng sugarcane juice dahil sa mga pictures mo, hehehe.

>hi share, i hope that you'll include the philippines in your list!

>antoine, yes. pero matagal na yon nung una ko pang pagpunta ng victorias. weird nga pero magandang experience yon kasi nalasahan ko ang tubo kung saan nangagaling ang katas para gawing asukal.

>redlan, oo nga. ako din redlan. hanggang sa daan lang ako nakakita ng pagharvest at pagprocess. hindi ko nasubukang makita ng malapitan. oo nga daming city doon.

>hi alicesg, hahaha... good point but definitely not for me as i reside in metro manila.

>luke, definitely.

>selerines, the road is good but not that good.

>oman, try mo rin ang negros. kasi ang linis tingnan pag mga tubuhan ang nasa tabi ng daan. sarap bumyahe sa negros.

>sidney, i agree. hopefully the twon will continue to progress to uplift poverty.

>hi doc rio, hindi naman. nilabas ko kamay ko sa mini bus tapos tinaas ko lang ang kamay ko para maganda ang kuha.

>pietro, thanks!

>l.reis, i surely did. just keep posted.

>phivos, surely is a nice place to visit.

>photo cache, yes. just posted the second entry for this short series. thanks for anticipating.

>hi em, i didn't had the chance to really see the factories to as close as talking with the workers but i was able to see it along the road when we visited the victorias milling.

>beero, tama ka dyan. dyan na rin umasenso ang negros occidental.

>hi joshmarie, byahe ka na rin.

>blogusvox, i somehow agree. maybe they invested the money somewhere.

>kegler, hehehe... saan ba nabibili yon?

nakakamiss ang Negros.

Dennis Villegas said...

Lovely green sugarcanes, first time I've seen such green. I always see sugarcanes sa Pampanga on the way to Manila, pero panay brown na. Maybe all ready for harvest.

Napakangandang tanawin, maliban sa mga mahihirap na kasama na nagtatabas ng tubo.

the donG said...

>jasper, sayang nga at hindi ako nakakababa at makatikim ulit ng tubo. tingin ko kailangan mo ng umuwi at magbakasyon doon.

>dennis, salamat. medyo mahirap nga kumuha kasi mabilis din ang bus.

>jayashkal, oo ganda nga pag green ang paligid. sarap bumyahe.
