La Carlota City is a 4th class city of Negros Occidental, Negros Island Region. The city is about 45.9 kms via San Enrique route and about 43.2 kilometers  using the Maao, Bago City route from Bacolod City can be reached at about an hour and a half with a public transport. Legend has it that she was well-loved by the natives for her social works so that they named their settlement after her when it was created as a municipality near the end of the Spanish colonial era in the Philippines. In line with the Spanish practice of adding an article before a proper noun, “La Carlota” became its official name.

Conquer the falls Guintubdan!!!
I thought it was an easy feat but noooooo…. Walking about 143 steps down and up again for the 1st falls was feat! Make sure you pack light and bring a small water bottle with you. Enjoy the scenery! The cool wind and shades provided by the trees will make everything tolerable.

The feeling is so rewarding when you strived hard for something and that was exactly how we feel when trekking through every falls of Guintubdan. Take the plunge in each of the 7 falls and enjoy the cool waters and pollution free environment.

But little reminder: As much as we are there to enjoy. Let us do our share to keep everything clean by not leaving trash behind. There are plenty of collecting bins where we can dispose them.

2017 was a challenge. It was very hard for both mum and I. However, looking back, it has only made our family stronger and grew in faith. Would you let puppy run his little tongue and share a little about our year?

  1. FIRST INTERNATIONAL DESTINATION!!! I never felt so small in this huge huge world. Good thing I got mum. She taught me how to prepare for this and we went all over Bangkok, Thailand~ It will always have a special space in my heart. BUT!! We won’t stop there! Mum’s brother promised that we will have more trips soon enough! We are looking forward to it! I hope we can meet some of you too!

  1. BUSY BUSY PAWRENT. Mum warm me that come May 2017, she will be very busy. She had barely some time to sleep – all the more for trips. We weren’t able to post much then because of her schedule. You ask why? Let us say, mum is running after a dream. And I am equally proud and supportive of her endeavors. All these are for me and our more trips to come.

  1. AN ANGEL IN PAPA GOD’S ARMY. Mum and I lost a great person but subsequently gained an angel to look after us while we take every step towards our goals. Mum’s dad, or my GrandPawrent (lolo) passed away September last year.  Being in out of ICU and the hospital – as we see him slowly wither away from a big strong man that we know was so hard for us. It really took a blow on mum. She made sure all comfort and management possible and afforded be given to him but still… his body succumbed to the disease. We will always remember you GrandPawpa. I will take care for mum and everybody like you always does.

  1. GROWING IN FRIENDSHIPS AND WISDOM AMIDST OF CHALLENGES. We have gained many opportunities and more friends. Remember when we thought we lost our WordPress account? and then someone hacked out IG account?  Good thing we got great friends who helped us to start back up.

So now we are ushering a new year!!! TO all of you who have been part of our 2017 – WE CAN NEVER BE MORE GRATEFUL.

Like what mum always say, “Things happen for a reason. You can’t control what life throws at you – but you can control how you react. Ultimately, it will be the basis of your results.”

2018 is the Year of the Dog!

What more positive signs you need?
