On The Road

8 05 2008

Practically, I was on the sea and on the road of Negros Island the whole day yesterday. It was a very tiring day for me travelling from Iloilo City by fastcraft to Bacolod City after breakfast and travelling all the way to Tanjay, Negros Oriental, crossing the Mabinay Mountains, and finally reaching the Municipality of Siaton, Negros Oriental where my farthest Battalion in southern Negros is located.

I visited a Brigade Headquarters in Tanjay and had lunch and had a chance to talk to my officers and men, bidding them farewell from the service. In Siaton, I was able to talk to the officers and men of a Battalion for more than 30 minutes, congratulating them for a job well done in dismantling the Guerrilla Front of the insurgents in Bohol Province and encouraging them to do the same for the province of Negros Oriental before the end of this year. Due to their diligence and patience to work with the local government officials, tourism is now thriving and in progress in Bohol surpassing the tourism in Cebu. I can categorically say that tourists are now safe in Bohol. Bohol is one of the best destinations for tourists.

From Siaton back to Bacolod City was a long trip. Departing from Siaton at 3:30PM, and after a dinner-stop at Kabankalan, Negros Occidental, we were able to reach Bacolod City at 11:00PM.

There was no run for the day and it was a tiring one for travelling by land almost the whole day.

I immediately went to bed and planned to have an early morning run tomorrow in Bacolod City.
