You know you're a true blue bacolodnon if ...

Your one peso is pisos. 

You take a bath using a tabo (or cabo) which is a used 1 quart
Caltex oil container.

Your bathroom has at least one lugod (some has one for every family

Your Nanay used to make you drink Mirinda or Royal Tru Orange when
you have a fever, which is supposed to make you feel better ... and 7-up
if you have a stomach upset.  And it seemed to worked!

Sinamak is a staple in your dining table -- the best bacolod’s invention
if you ask me;  the acidity of this stuff is so potent that it was even
banned on airplanes long before 9/11.

Your toyo is patis and your patis is toyo

You use atsuete for your adobo and pinamalhan (pinaksiw)

Your daily meal will likely include laswa, kbl (kadyos, baboy,langka),
ginat-an nga tambo with tugabang and okra, ginat-an nga munggo,
linutik,apan-apan, etc.

November 1 means eating ibus, suman, suman latik, kalamay-hati, bayi-
bayi, valenciana or other native delicacies with glutinous rice and
coconut milk

You call those you love palangga, pangga, or ga

You call your siblings or cousins inday, nonoy or toto...the
househelp may call you the same

You call those who are older than you manang or manong

You catch the attention of sales attendants by calling them "day"
or "to"

Your childhood games include tumba patis, taksi, panagu-ay, balay-
balay, ins, tin-tin baka, etc.

You used to be scared to go out at night lest you meet the aswang, tik-tik,
tayhu, kapre, kama-kama, morto, etc.

You call a person, thing, place and event kwan when you forget it
(si kwan, ang kwan, sa kwan, nag kwan)

You understand that "Particulars Keep Out" sign means Outsiders Keep
Out.  (believe me, this sign may look and sound English but it's only us
Ilonggos who use it)

You use words such as "ahay" (expression of pity, grief, empathy),

"yuga" (expression of disbelief, surprise),

"ambot ah" (to say you don't know, or an expression of impatience)

You often start your sentence with ti

You say goodbye by saying "halong"

Your favorite cusswords are linte (if you're slightly pissed off)
and hijo de puta (if you're pissed off big time)...


Ti, sigue halong lang kamo ha!

Bacoloy- Silay Airport

Today, i'l discuss about infrastructure...this time it is all about the newly opened airport in Silay City a year ago.


The New Bacolod-Silay Airport replaces the old Bacolod airport and is the main airport serving the general area of Bacolod City.

The airport is located fifteen kilometers northeast of Bacolod on a 181-hectare site in Brgy. Bagtic, Silay City, Negros Occidental. The airport which is designed with an international standard is built to become the primary gateaway to Negros Island and is envisioned to be one of the 3 international airports to service Western Visayas along with the Kalibo International Airport and the New Iloilo Airport.

It has one primary runway, 45 meters wide, and 2, 000 meters long. The runway runs in a direction of 03°/21°, and can currently handle aircraft as large as the Airbus A330. It is also equipped with an Instrument Landing System, making it capable of handling night and low-visibility landings.

The state-of-the-art facility is built to handle over a million passengers and 16, 715 tons of cargo annually.

Currently, 4 airlines are serving the airport to include Philippine Airlines, Air Philippines, Cebu Pacific Air and Zest Air covering Manila and Cebu flights.
