The hassle of being an employed individual takes away the smile that employees have been trying so hard to keep. Waking up every morning to get to the office on time, bearing the city’s heavy traffic, and taking orders from inconsiderate bosses are only a few reasons why employees want to resign and look for another job or do business.

Most of the people on the planet work so hard because they want to be wealthy. We all want to be rich enough to afford the better future that is waiting ahead of us. Yes, we want a steady cash flow for our retirement. Still, it is somehow hard to earn a good amount of money, which is why some people are engaging themselves in business and investment. 

Stressing yourself for something like income-generating property, marriage, family, and future is okay and normal. It is fine if you feel like you are growing old and you need to, by now, start and settle. Motivating yourself a little will help you begin maturing and developing as an individual. Therefore, we are here to introduce you to a place where you can start making your life a little better.

We start with The Masskara Festival, one of the world’s most well-known events.

Secondly, The Ruins, located near Talisay, is one of the most famous sites and should not be missed. To give a little background to the famous attraction, The Ruins is also known as the Nutsberry Garden; it was created in 1920 but was destroyed in 1942 by Filipino guerillas opposed to Don Mariano’s agreement of allowing specific locations Japanese forces to enter during World War II. 

It would help if you took a cab or a tricycle from Barangay Bata to the Ruins. The Ruins could be seen from the Goldcrest Village clubhouse. The Ruins were once magnificent homes. Don Mariano Lopez, Maria Baga’s husband, spent the remainder of his life with his children after she died. It’s currently one of Bacolod City’s most famous tourist attractions, particularly at night.

San Sebastian Cathedral

The center of spiritual guidance for this province, famed for its vast expanses of sugar land, is in the heart of Bacolod City, the capital of Negros Occidental. The San Sebastian Cathedral, strategically placed by the sea and centrally located where the city is divided into north and south, stands tall with its magnificent towers overlooking Bacolod City’s square.

It is only natural that the cathedral in the province’s capital has one of the most majestic façades among Negros churches. The San Sebastian Cathedral, with its carefully coordinated symmetry, might easily represent the ideal balance of the ordinary and the holy.

The cathedral was named after Pueblo de San Sebastian, another name for this city while still known as Magsungay. San Sebastian de Magsungay was the village’s full name in the 18th century. The village center was a few kilometers south of the current position of the cathedral. Still, due to Moros invasions, the locals, the people of Magsungay, relocated to a new settlement in the mountainous terrain named “bakólod,” the forerunner of the modern-day name, Bacolod.

Negros Museum

Negros is a fantastic site to visit, primarily because of the immersive experience it provides to visitors. It’s a museum that concentrates on conveying the fascinating tale of the Negros region rather than keeping objects.

The Negros Museum officially opened to the public on March 16th, 1996. The edifice is a historic neoclassical structure erected in 1925 that was once the capital building where the previous governors of Negros Occidental held office until the early 1970s.

The Negros Museum is the Philippines’ first curatorial museum, focusing on rare relics and Negros history and modern local works, and artist biographies. At the Museum Shop, local artists and craftspeople sell reproductions of commissioned works.

The Negros Museum encapsulates the abundance of the history, art, and culture of the people of Negros Island. This is essentially a children’s museum, but it also includes something for adults interested in learning about Negros’ unexpected role in founding the Philippine Republic.

It’s simple to get here. Request to be brought to the Provincial Capitol Building, where the museum is only a short walk away.
