Let The Music Play

Farmers Market Musicians
Whoever heard of going to a farmers market to listen to excellent music? Well, let me tell you something, brothers and sisters. If you go to the Negros Weekend Farmers Market on Saturday morning, you may just catch two great musicians performing. They don’t sing but they sure can play the fiddle and the acoustic guitar!

Who are these guys? Nimrod Villamarzo and Ashley Ledesma. I doubt many call a violin a fiddle in this area but that is what I call it. I was really intrigued with this stylist playing of the fiddle and this young man really puts his heart into playing.

If you are looking for instrumentalist song stylists to play at your private celebration or fiesta, these two young men are available. Just go to the Negros Weekend Farmers Market and contact them. If they are not there, someone can give you their contact information.

Negros Weekend Farmers Market
Since you will already be at the Negros Weekend Farmers Market, why not browse around all the fruits, vegetables and local food products. I am sure you will find something you like, di ba?

The Negros Weekend Farmers Market food court has expanded and you should be able to find something you like eating.

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

AmeriSub Food Corner

Are you looking for an American-style sandwich in Bacolod City for P60 or less? AmeriSub is the place to go. Where is it? I thought you would want to know. It is located inside Terra Plaza, on the corner of Rizal and Gatuslao Streets.

You will find AmeriSub at this food cart inside Terra Plaza.

I started out with a ham sandwich, which had lettuce, tomato, onion and mayonnaise. These were the condiments I chose but you can order your sandwich the way you like it.

This doesn’t look like your common hot dog does it? It is actually New Yorker brand hot dog, sliced and served on a sandwich roll.

Due to the lighting in Terra Plaza, this is the best shot I could get with my camera. For sure, you can see the prices. Whichever sandwich you order, the price is P35 for the small and P60 for the large. Sound great to you?

Do you like ice cold beer? I’ve got some good news for you! In Terra Plaza, there are several vendors on site who you can buy a bucket of beer from. Six bottles in the bucket for only P180. Now, is that a deal or what? Red Horse, San Miguel Pilsen or San Mig Light. Or mix and match your 6 bottles.

The next time you want an American style sandwich, drop by AmeriSub Food Corner and Ron will fix you up.

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

2014 in Review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog. I would like to thank everyone for reading All Around Bacolod. I wish all of you a very health and prosperous 2015. I hope to see you one day, somewhere…all around Bacolod.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 31,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 11 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
