    its almost two years since i left my hometown silay city. when i saw this pictures,it makes me homesick. i really miss the place specially the plaza. its the cleanest place ive ever seen..

  4. I grew up in Silay. It is a serene and simple place.
    When I get really bored at home or I couldn’t stand my mother’s husband, I just walk the streets until I reach the plaza. Sometimes I go around the block of Sengco de Noviembre before checking into my crash pad, the Library. I like walking the cool streets sheltered by big acasia trees. Then I can spend the whole day in the Library reading books and magazines. It was like a time travel, browsing thru Reader’s Digests dating back to 1920’s!
    Then there was a Silay-Bacolod airport which I opposed to. If there had been a street rally, I would have joined them so that Silay will not be destroyed by pollution and uncaring strangers brought by commercialism.
    But anyway, the street I lived in stayed the same. No bystanders, no alcoholics singing the karaoke in a very holistic hours. Fortunately, the tricycle drivers and the jeepney conductors are still polite and sensitive, unlike here in Cebu 😀

    peace 🙂

    I grew up in Silay City. It’s been a long nine years since I left. The Silay is incomparable specially the plaza during Christmas and Fiesta. I’ve seen on TFC channel how beautiful the christmas lights are.Although I miss it so much, I still feel lukcy to have a beautiful place to look back to and I know I can always come back to it…I can’t wait to see it again and feel at home…silay city is the only place i’d rather be…

    It’s been 7 years since I left Silay. I miss the Plaza where my children fed the fishes with the popcorn. The pies and biscuits and sweets in El Ideal. The lights and decorations during christmas. I realli miss this place.

    Just came back from our Silay-Talisay tour. It was really amazing. When we first walked on its streets on a Sunday afternoon, I recall the images of Cuba–minus, the totalitarian regime. People are really nice and it was a very relaxing walking tour…didn’t want to leave Silay City!

    Silay; the city of my happy childhood! my last visit brought tears and flood of amazing memories. The Silay I left was almost insulated in a time-capsule. It remains the way it was almost 30 years ago. The musical sway ilonggos dialic, the colours, the sounds and even the feel of the sun. I was terribly homesick! Silay is home because that’s where a piece of my heart is.
    until next visit..

    Feel free to visit my blog and see the photos – there is no entrance fee!

  17. Hey would you mind letting me know which hosting company you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good hosting provider at a honest price? Cheers, I appreciate it!

  19. This interactive feature allows a user to shift the view of a photo so that its perspective changes. You will also be sent text help and other kinds of alerts if a thief tries to replace your SIM card. And I think also partly because they know we just love doing it! I can assure you, Dragon Go, that my wife’s number is in fact available, even though you couldn’t find it.
