An Overnight Trip in Iloilo City

I love Iloilo City. I'm not an Ilongga, but I have a lot of Ilonggo friends (based both in Iloilo and Manila) that's why I keep coming back to this city. I like how everything is so affordable there most especially the food that are super yummy! Oysters, cream horn, butterscotch, kansi (bulalo), inasal...name it and they have it!

I got really excited when I found out I'll be traveling there overnight for free. It's for work actually, but it so happened that my friends got a big event coming up on the same weekend so I knew that overnight trip would be really super worth it.

On September 21, lunch time, I flew to Iloilo with Angelia, Shamcey and LLoyd for a fashion show. From the airport, we headed to Sarabia Manor Hotel to check-in and have lunch. We rested for a bit while waiting for Daniel, who's also a part of the show. And when he arrived, they had some quick rehearsals.

this hotel is pretty old

The event was organized by UP Visayas - ICON (an student organization) and College of Management Student Council for the benefit of Chameleon Foundation. The event was entitled, "BISTE 3", featuring five young designers of Iloilo City namely Jor-el Espina, Ram Silva, Alberto Barros, Paul Conte and Marvin Monfort.


Here are some of the photos of the fashion show:

After the event, we rested for a bit in our rooms and headed to Lamesa Grill for our late dinner. After dinner, we headed back to the hotel to freshen up. Then we're off to La Tolda at Plazuela to party!:)

The party we headed to was entitled, "Those Damn Nerds A/V Tour in 3D"; and it was our friend Renzi, one of the organizers, who invited us. DJ Mia Ayesa was one of the spinners. There were big screens that featured graphics and lyrics in 3D that's why there were 3D glasses all over the place. 



We really had a blast! Just four of us finished a liter of Black Label in 20 minutes. It was my first time doing a bottoms up of scotch haha! It was followed by another bottle of that...then another bottle of Jack. It was really a fun night! Here are some of our crazy photos:

back in the hotel, still holding the pizza we found inside Renzi's car LOL!

The last time I had an overnight trip like this was in Isabela last April, for Angelia's hosting job. And for this trip, she was the one who joined me for work. No matter where we both are, we're always having fun. Thanks so much to my soul sister, whom I call "kapatid".:)

I would like to thank Jonas, and Maffy of Mercator Model Management for being so professional and considerate. Thanks also to Shamcey and Daniel for being so patient and accommodating, most especially because there were a lot of people taking photos with them. Thanks to Lloyd for joining us. Also, I would like to thank Renzi for inviting us and giving us unlimited booze at the event...oh, and for being our driver. haha!


That's it! Well, Iloilo never fails to impress me. I really love this city. Can't wait to be back!:)
