I know it’s somewhat late to post this but I’ll post it anyway. Last October, me and Ali went to Bacolod to experience Mascara Festival. It was truly a fun and extremely difficult experience. Yes you heard it right! Extremely difficult!. So what happened was, we arranged this outing for a considerable length of time and we truly can’t bear to wipe it out. Regardless of the fact that there was a tropical storm we still chose to travel. We went to North Bus terminal Saturday morning and shockingly Bacolod outings were scratched off because of the tropical storm (Like, whaaat?) It truly made me extremely upset realizing that we can’t push through with the trip we were so eager to go. Since we truly can’t simply release it, we attempted to go to South Bus terminal trusting that there will be a trip to Bacolod there. So when we arrive there, we rode a Bus going to Toledo City wanting to have the capacity to ride a ship going to Bacolod. When we arrived at Toledo City, we were informed that there’s no trip going to Bacolod and that it was wiped out. We were about to surrender yet a v-hire driver let us know that there’s a trip to Bacolod from Tabuelan port. He said he was certain in light of the fact that it’s as of now his third outing heading off to the port and that there was a trip there going to Bacolod. So we went for an hour ride. Following an hour trip going to Tabuelan, we arrived the port and it was somewhat heartbreaking since they officially ceased the trip going to Bacolod because of the storm. They said that they’ll be continuing the trip most likely tomorrow morning. So since we’re already there, we simply spent the night there and chose to wake up ahead of schedule to check if there will be a trip going to Bacolod. It’s fortunate there’s a shabby space for rent in the place.

So then we woke up at an early hour the following morning, they now continued the trips although there was just a little delay. We landed at Escalante port so we just rode a Bus going to Bacolod terminal. It was at that point around 7pm when we landed at the terminal and it was raining. So then we just took a taxi setting off to the spot where we will be staying.
We arrived at the spot around 8PM so then we had dinner then went out for a bit. It’s never past the point where it is possible to experience Mascara celebration, is it? There were road parties simply like amid Sinulog in Cebu. In spite of the fact that I can truly say that Sinulog is more enjoyable and wild. So anyway, we truly appreciated the night, in any event.

We woke up at a young hour the following morning to go to the well known “The Ruins”. That is truly one of our bucketlist so ACHIEVE!
Anyway, the place was really stunning! It’s beautiful! Some even chose it was their wedding or birthday receptions.
We did not really staylong because we still have to go home since we have work that night.
But the struggle did not end there. On our way home, we rode a motorcycle from The Ruins to terminal. The bus left the terminal around 12. When we get to the port, we were told that all trips were cnacelled due to the storm (Again??). We were advised to transfer to another port because there’s trip going to Cebu there (Again??!). The driver then told all the passengers that if we wanted to transfer to other port, then we have to pay additional 100php. All passengers agreed so we then travelled an hour to transfer to another port. When we get there, there really was 1 ferry that will go to Cebu, although it was delayed but at least there is. We already left the port around 7pm. We arrived at North Bus terminal around 3am.
The trip was really a struggle but it was really worth it!

To Kawasan We Go

I promised to myself to have more travels this year, I even created a travel list. However, because of the busy schedule it’s kinda hard fulfill all the places in my travel list.

Good thing the place of Cebu really has a lot to offer and there’s a lot of places that you can visit and unwind. I really love to go to beaches but this time it’s gonna be different.

I’m sure Kawasan Falls sounds really familiar to most Cebuanos. I’ve heard a lot about the place from my friends so I thought “why not?”.

Here are some of our pictures:

I went there with my friends Gay with her Boyfriend, Jared, Queenee and Alli.

The falls has 1st level, 2nd level and 3rd level. We went there Sunday so there’s a lot of people in the first level so we went straight to the 2nd level. It would be nice if we also try the 3rd level but we were told that the way to go to the 3rd level is really hard so we just stayed on the 2nd level.

How to go there?

From the heart of Cebu, you can just ride a bus going straight to Badian. When you reach Badian, you still have to walk for approximately 20 mins going to the falls itself. If your lazy and you don’t want to walk, there’s also some motorcycle which will take you to the place. But then, if there’s a lot of you, It would be more fun if you walk rather than take the motorcycle.

See you soon in my next adventure!!!!
