Balay Negrense, Silay City, Bacolod-15

Hello! I just got back from my quick trip to Bacolod.

Let’s just say I was inspired by the Everyday I Love You movie (fangirl alert) to visit this place once more. So, the first spot I went to was Balay Negrense.

Balay Negrense, Silay City, Bacolod-14

Located in Silay City, Balay Negrense is an ancestral house that has been turned into a museum. Originally the humble abode of Victor F. Gaston, it is now one of the famous tourist spots in Silay. It showcases how the life of Victor F. Gaston, a Negrense or a native of Negros, looked like in the late 19th century. Enjoy the photos!

There’s a lot more to see inside the museum, actually. Most of the photos here were taken at the first floor, except for the windows (second to the last photo). Why? Because the second floor really creeped me out and I had nobody with me. The caretaker somehow went MIA before I went upstairs. I didn’t last five minutes in there. It was probably how the items were arranged or something. It had an uncanny beauty to it, but my cowardice got the best of me. I’m definitely going back there someday, but not alone! Go see it for yourself to find out what I’m talking about. Haha.
