Wat je gaat doen

Negros is known as the sugar capital of the Philippines. We will explore historical and instagrammble sites in the "sugar cities" of Silay and Talisay, where the Philippines' first bloodless revolution was hatched. We will visit old mansions that tell the province's rich colonial heritage. And over a cup of coffee or tea and some local sweets, I'll tell you the story of a brilliant war strategy that won the Negrenses their independence from Spanish colonial rule. You can even have your own keepsake of this experience as well as your other experiences in the future in a journal that I will help you make.
Other things to note
If you haven't done a journal before, don't worry, I'll guide you through it. If you're serious about journal writing, let's exchange ideas. If you're not into it, just enjoy the experience.

I am a former broadcast journalist who just loves telling stories as they happen and how it happened. And one of the stories that fascinates me most is the story of a brilliant strategy that gave birth to the "Negros Republic."

I enjoy showing people my province's rich cultural heritage as well as telling them about the sweet life in Negros. As a history buff and and foodie, I like exchanging stories of lessons learned in the past over a cup of homebrewed coffee and local delectable sweets.

My hobbies include cooking and journaling. If food is life and memories and ideas are life's inspirations, I get to enjoy good food and preserve each memory in my journals. I find pleasure in sharing this hobby to anyone who'd like to find joy in writing as well as preserving ideas and memories for future references.

Very accommodating host! Elaine knows well the local food spots and the unique food to try in each of the sites and integrate it well on her "sugar tales"

Totally worth the experience and good value for money. :) Elaine was very accommodating and her company felt like we're catching up with an old friend.

No dull moment! It was a superb experience. Elaine is so friendly, bubbly and made you feel like she'd known you for years. She has a good grasp of the history of Negros and she made you feel like a part of the community. The 4 hour tour is not enough to cover all the gems of Negros/Bacolod and we are definitely coming back for more! Thank you very much Elaine for the wonderful experience! And for the personalized journal--I'll take your advise on how to make one. :)

Elaine had deep insights into Bacolod. Her love of her homeland was very apparent in her storytelling. No way we could have enjoyed Bacolod as much as we did with Elaine.

Ms. Elaine is really friendly, kind, knowledgeable of everything (history, facts, etc.) about the Negros province and the tourist spots that we visited. She was never time-conscious even though it always took me and my parents a long time in taking photos. In the end, we were overtime for 1.5 hours but she was so kind and had all smiles to the very last second. The experiences in the itinerary, meanwhile, would be hard to do alone and wouldn’t make much sense without the stories that she shared on the road. It was so so so fun! Thanks, Ms. Elaine!
