Weekend in the mountains of Sibulan

We accepted the offer from good friends and were able to look forward to a wonderful weekend in the mountains of Sibulan, Negros Oriental.

Early in the morning on a Saturday, we loaded up the car for the trip and picked up plenty of beer and ice on the way. Later passing through Tanjay City, before heading to Pamplona, we bought some meat for barbeque at the local market.

To get to this highland area of Sibulan, you have to drive from Dumaguete through Sibulan on national road 7 via San Jose and Amlan and then turn off onto the road to Pamplona inland in Tanjay City. After that, I lost my bearings on the small side roads, where we had to turn off every now and then and which were sometimes very bad.

We were there at lunchtime and when the freshly prepared kinilaw (raw fish cooked in vinegar) arrived at the table, it wasn’t long before the first ice-cold beer appeared in our hands. Over coffee and beer, we enjoyed the sweeping view across the plain to Bais City. When it got dark, karaoke was sung and the weekend was celebrated.

The morning began with another great view, until the group prepared for departure again. This was delayed with a picnic and a dip in the cool waters of the river below the weekend home. But that is yet another small experience in the mountains of Sibulan.
