Needful Things

Some days, I just want to bang on the drum all day! It is so great being retired to the Philippines and I can’t think of a better place than the Bacolod area.

I know several places to find the Cheeseburger in Paradise. I recently posted about Gunny’s All American Burger in Bacolod. Well, Buckaroos, you can add one more excellent burger to your list. Das Burgery. You can check their Facebook to get their schedule, as they are not a restaurant in a building. They are traveling burgers. Das Burgery is at Ayala District Mall one or two weekends each month.

Hey! That’s me with a 101 Das Burger and an ice cold SMB.

It is impossible to be bored in the Bacolod area. There is something to do for most everyone. Unless you are a hunter. Wildlife is protected in the Philippines and foreigners cannot own firearms.

It’s time to bang on the drums again. I am excited to play Conga! I have my own Latin Percussion Timbales drums at home. Remember Tito Puente?

Please check out my latest article about Thanksgiving in Bacolod on Retiring to the Philippines.

Take care! I hope to see you one day, somewhere…all around Bacolod.

    There are many foreigners in Negros Occidental these days. According to published Bacolod BI statistics, there are more than 2,000 foreigners with resident visas and more than 9,000 foreigners have renewed their tourist visas. There are also many foreigners who live in the Bacolod Area most of the year with their Balikbayan Privilege. Their spouse is a Philippine citizen.
