OUR gang went to Negros Occidental recently to join the Kali-Kalihan Festival upon invitation of Don Salvador Benedicto town Mayor Mac dela Cruz.
Before proceeding to DSB, we had a sumptuous lunch at Bacolod City’s popular Imay’s restaurant.
On hand to entertain us was Imay’s charming owner Gemma Que and Mayor Dela Cruz.
Upon reaching “The Summer Capital of Negros Occidental” (due to its cool climate), we dined at Dela Cruz family’s mountain estate where Mayor Mac’s mom, former mayor Cynthia Dela Cruz prepared superb native cuisines.
We then witnessed the Kali Kali festival highlight, which is the Zootah Sang Kali Beauty Pageant, a surprising Gay Pageantry which brought the house down for thousands of festival revelers!
After the pageant, we went back to The City of Smiles’ newest and plushest place, Stonehills Suites, for a much-needed rest in its 5-star ameneties. (Contact number (034) 435-9206, 09058989003, or 09176359238 for bookings or reservations).
The next day was capped with a relaxing brunch at the Ruins then a late luncheon hosted by construction magnate Jerry Sy, who owns Stonehills Suites, at his posh residence before we sailed back to our City of Love!
Cheers to Mayor Mac Dela Cruz and Jerry Sy for your splendid generosity!
