One can’t help but feel the December breeze in Bacolod City. This week’s weather will keep you staying indoors because of the thunderstorms and afternoon showers. Meanwhile, Bacolod City Mayor revealed that the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) has allocated a budget for the Bacolod Public Plaza rehabilitation.

Weather Advisory: Mostly cloudy with afternoon showers and thunderstorms

Indoor activities will most likely be your first choice this week because of the approaching wet weather. On most days, cloudy skies and afternoon showers are expected to develop in the City of Smiles. Moreover, the cold breeze in December will make you want to drink a cup of hot choco or a cup of coffee each time when you get up in the morning. This week’s temperatures in Bacolod will range from 29°C to 31°C [1].

Traffic News: Public Plaza gets budget for rehab

Situated in the downtown area of Bacolod, Bacolod City Public Plaza is considered as one of the top tourist attractions in the city. Since it is situated right across the historical San Sebastian Cathedral church, many tourists never miss their chance to strike a pose in the plaza as proof that they have visited the City of Smiles.

However, as per Bacolod City Mayor Evelio Leonardia, the said tourist spot requires rehabilitation. He added that there’s a need to replace the plaza’s ground, walkway, and lighting system. Mayor Leonardia has also revealed that the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) has already allocated a PhP23 million budget for the rehab [2].He also said that the City Engineer’s Office will be the one to handle the rehab project and that the contractor already started the repair or rehabilitation of the public plaza.

This mountain resort is quite far from the hustle and bustle of the city but the view keeps your road trip worth it and will give you the urge to come back. Jinggoy’s Resort requires an entrance fee of PhP100. With its amenities such as cottages, a garden, and swimming pool that will open soon, adults and children will fall in love with the place.
