This trip was originally scheduled for 9 straight days from the province of Iloilo going south to Siquijor. Since I am a corporate slave and I needed to report on work, the planned leaves weren’t approved and ended up booking a Bacolod-Manila seat sale midway of the intended trip. I left home on a rainy Saturday morning with a southwest monsoon affecting Metro Manila. The monsoon intensified in Luzon while I’m exploring the three provinces of the Visayas.
