Iloilo to Bacolod Ferry Ride ⛴

  
It’s not my first time to ride a ferry. I already tried the Bohol to Cebu ferry (aka SuperCat) last November. So when I’m planning my week and realized that I need to ride a ferry going to Bacolod, I felt a little excited. I’m in Iloilo for a business trip and I also need to go to Bacolod on the same week. It would be more convenient to ride a ferry from Iloilo to Bacolod. Plus, I have no choice. A flight between Bacolod and Iloilo does not exist. 
  
I opted to ride FastCat since they have an 8pm trip. Long story.  Let’s just say I need to do a lot of things before leaving Iloilo. Haha 😬

 I won’t compare the two ports in detail. Bottomline, that in Bohol is better facility-wise. 

(Sidenote: Notice the crescent moon. I guess at this point, you know I have this thing for the moon.😬)

 
They don’t have this view at the Bohol port. One point Iloilo. Haha. I regret the fact that I did not bring with me my mirrorless camera to capture this sunset. 

 
This is where you buy the ticket. The trip normally costs Php 300. I got mine for Php 250. On promo. Yey. 😬

 
  
You can sit inside the store while waiting for the ferry. I actually dozed off. Haha. I’m very tired thay day OK.  

 
The fery arrived at 7pm. It took like an hour though before the passengers can go on-board since the crew have to load the shipments and other cargos inside (e.g. cars). 

 
 This is how it looks inside. 

 
“Paano Ba Magmahal” and “A Second Chance” were played during the trip. Haha. May pinagdadaanan siguro yung isang crew member. Haha. 

  Tip: When you arrived in Bacolod, there’s a free bus transfer going to the terminal. Don’t listen to the trycycle drivers at the dock. 

 
The trip is quite slow. The travel started at 8pm and we arrived in Bacolod at 8pm. 😴

I’m actually just asleep the entire time because I need to conserve my energy since I still need to do a report after arriving at the hotel. (Trying hard not to rant now. Haha 😑)

Yey for a new life experience! 😬

My First Try at Night Photography 

While walking home, I noticed that the moon is full tonight. I have a thing for the full moon so I had this urge of getting my camera and taking a picture of it. 

But I realized I’m not that knowledgeable of taking night pics (damn you ISO! Lol). 

So it went from this:   

To this:   

And finally(!) this:   

Congratulate me guys. Haha. 

I actually have pulled this off. Well. Sort off. Haha. 

One of the reason why I bought a good camera is for me to have a good shot of the Milky Way from our place so I really need to know how to do night photography. I hope I can squeeze enough time from work to learn how to do this though.

Wish me luck! 🙂
