Negros in a Day (Bacolod-Talisay-Silay-Manapla-Murcia)

Hacienda Sta Rosalia
Manapla, Negros Occidental
With the proliferation of Airfare Sales, going from one Island to another has become very affordable. Cebu Pacific is the pioneer for offering super low fares with their PISO FARE. I was able to purchase a Round Trip ticket for only P47.00 (add the terminal fee at T3 and it will come out to P247, then add the seat selection it will come out to P547, still very cheap). It was also another opportunity to visit Negros Island (my first for 2011) and finally get to visit Hacienda Sta Rosalia (The mansion used for the film Oro, Plata Mata).

Our trip was scheduled for 455am via Cebu Pacific. I had already checked in online and printed our boarding passes so we just left the house 3:00am. I was expecting that it will be a 30 minute drive to NAIA T3, but i was wrong as it was just 15 minutes. Anyway, it is better to be early than to be late. The plane departed 20 minutes ahead of schedule. We arrived at Bacolod-Silay International Airport earlier than the 6am schedule. Here was our Itinerary for the rest of the day.
