Bacolod, things to do, travel, weather

A new policy in Bacolod wants motorcycles to have easy-to-read plate numbers.

Brace yourselves as high temperature will bring hotter days this week in Bacolod City. But the weather isn’t the only thing that’s hot; tempers flare as motorcycle groups protest the new policy for bigger and color-coded license plates. Meanwhile, a new historical museum will soon stand on top of Patag Hill in Silay City. This museum will showcase memorabilia of the four wars that happened in Negros Island.

Weather Advisory: Bright skies and hotter days are coming

Summer’s high pressure started to kick in in the past few weeks and will continue to dominate the weather in the next four days. With temperatures ranging from 32 °C to 34 °C, expect bright and dry days from Monday until Friday [1]. However, the temperature will shift from high to low on Saturday and will bring mostly cloudy skies, resulting in a possible thunderstorm during the weekend. Since the forecast for the weekend makes it a good idea to stay indoors, opt for activities like playing board games in your hotel or sampling the desserts at Bacolod’s most famous cafes to still have fun.

Traffic News: Bigger license plate policy for motorcycles causes protest

The new policy for bigger and color-coded license plates in front and back of motorcycles caused protests from over hundreds of motorcycle riders in Negros Occidental. During the protest, riders expressed their dissent over the Motorcycle Crime Prevention Act or Republic Act No 11235, signed by President Rodrigo Duterte on March 8 [2].

According to Mr. Jeorgen Flores, vice president of Western Bicutan Riders Motorcycle Club Bacolod, this scheme would place the riders’ life at risk. In addition, Mr. Jose Moncatar of SZR Motorbikers of Negros said that the policy will compromise the motorcycle riders’ safety.

This new policy aims to develop a more effective way of detecting and controlling crimes, and will make it easy for enforcers to arrest those who are involved in motorcycle-aided crimes.

Travel Update: New historical museum to rise soon in Silay City

The proposed War and Peace Museum will rise soon in Brgy. Patag, Silay City. According to Mr. Modesto Sa-onoy, President of the Negros Historical Foundation and proponent of the project, the museum will show what happened in the wars against Spain, America, Japan, and the Communist insurgency.

The War and Peace Museum will occupy the one-hectare land area owned by the family of Buddy Jison. The property was given by the owner as perpetual usufruct to the Negros Occidental provincial government. The Philippine Veterans Bank and the Philippine Veterans Affairs Office of the Department of National Defense will fund the museum project.

The War and Peace museum will be located on the top of the hill where WW II battlegrounds are seen. Mr. Sa-onoy said that, according to history, more than 8,000 soldiers died in Brgy. Patag, where the museum will be built.
