I was in college when I first set foot in the City of Smiles. Two of my close friends and I lived there for three months for a documentary we were filming for our thesis. Years later, I would keep coming back to what became one of my favorite places in the Visayan region.
But in all those times that I visited Bacolod, never did I imagine that there would be a piece of island paradise near the city. Until this year.
For our three-day trip, our host, April, decided to include a sidetrip to a small island called CARBIN REEF.
