One of the reasons we visited Bais City was the Central Azucacera de Bais. At the height of Ondoy, my family went to the town of Mabinay in Negros Oriental, and along the way, we passed by several towns, including Bais and Tanjay. What drew me to come back to the azucarera was the tree-shaded street in between the small gated compound of houses that used to accommodate the azucarera’s owners. Advertisements
We sometimes choose the unlikeliest places as a destination. As an example, we went to Bais City in 2009. Bais City is famous for its dolphin-watching tours but we did not go there to watch dolphins, but to eat hotcakes and ice scramble and watch children play outside the public schools on a Friday afternoon.
