One of the best things of living in a province is you get to be close to nature. If you were born or if you grew up in a big city in the Philippines (or outside of the Philippines) that may not be your thing because life is slow, mostly quiet and mostly peaceful. This kind of life suits us Bacolodnons very well.
In Bacolod, city life is not as fast-paced as life in the Capital but its on a level that the Bacolod-city-folk can handle. If we want to slow down even more, and believe me when I say that the desire to do so really does come up, we go to the outskirts. I and my family did just that when my dad turned (secret age).
