Southern Hills Day 10: Back to Bacolod

So today was day 10, We woke up at 7:15 (yay a sleep in) started off with a big breakfast (after the Lugaw) at a fellow missionary’s house. The house was surrounded by a stunning garden filled with inspirational slogans to deter the detrimental actions we produce on earth. Breakfast included a delicacy called P-ya ya which tastes just like pop tarts.

We then moved on from our picturesque Paradiso resort and travelled to Bacolod, where we then visited the Bacolod central mall which walking towards looked just like universal studios. We got to choose our own lunch having the choice of K.F.C, pizza hut or Jollibee. After we all finished our food the girls and guys split into separate groups – where the girls were able to go to a salon and get a choice of: A hot oil treatment, a foot spa, manicure-pedicure, body massage or a trim, whilst the boys got the choice of a haircut, shave or massage.

After getting pampered we came back to our hotel to be given our room keys and got changed to go to the VMA’s president’s house to be welcomed into a beautiful garden set up with a diverse buffet of traditional Philipino foods. WE had entertainment for the night which consisted of some colourful dancers celebrating the Malaska festival, after that we had a live band supplying us with amazing music to dance to and then giving Zoe, Ben, and myself (Tori) the chance to do some karaoke. We ended the night with a traditional song “it’s more fun in the Philippine’s” leaving us all in good spirits.
