i ❤ dumaguete | i ❤ silliman

Dumaguete City is a small coastal town in Negros Oriental in the Philippines. The very first thing you see if you travel by boat is of course, Dumaguete's pier; but right beside it is THE Rizal Boulevard. It stretches to several blocks and a lot of Dumaguetenos jog there early in the morning and late in the afternoon. There are also a lot of restaurants, coffee shops and restobars and the place is alive from morning to night.

Let me show you the place...






Beautiful, non? Specially that third photo which looks like it came straight out of a cartoon, but was just really taken from my iPad.

Now a Dumaguete introduction would not be complete without talking about my alma mater, Silliman University. If you're reading this and thinking about attending a good university, don't hesitate to head straight to SU. It would be an experience like no other.

I could never really take pictures of all the places in Silliman as I was too busy reminiscing my college years, and pointing to baby boy where mommy used to study. I love how there's a lot of space here to walk around and it's soooo green! I never really appreciated it back then. 

We also dropped by the booth area where different student organizations, sororities, and fraternities had booths/tents laid out for founder's week. I wasn't able to take a lot of pictures, but we had a really great time. xx

  5. I've been to Dumaguete a few times as a boat stop over whenever I go to Manila and we would always rush to the market for a quick breakfast. Puto! LOL What I remember most about the place is the blvd and the motorcycles with no side mirror. I've never seen so many motorcycles in one place my entire life!
