Transcom is a Europe based call center that is set to locate its second branch here in the city of smiles. They are currently in Planta Hotel and Residences to accept applicants. This will be the 7th BPO company that will soon operate in Bacolod City.
Their target of operation will be on the 3rd quarter of this year with 800 employees. They will be located at Lopue’s South Square in Araneta St., Brgy. Tangub, Bacolod City.
Isn’t it amazing?!!! Bacolod is the home of BIG BPO companies in Western Visayas.
After almost 4 months since it opened, Starbucks Bacolod finally released their specialized Bacolod mugs and tumblers. Now, mug fanatics (especiallythose who love to collect starbucks mugs) can purchase this beautifully designed MUG at Starbucks Bacolod for only 425 and their tumbler for 395 ( ahem!!! its not for free..)
The design resembles our own iron dinosaur used to transport sugarcane during the sugar empire era (sad to say, these trains are now being set for display). So calling all mug lovers, go grab one now!!! only available at starbucks bacolod…where else? hahahahaha

Another Big event is set to happen this January here in Bacolod. Amidst the Global crisis, Bacolod will show the world that we can still celebrate and enjoy the Chinese New Year with a smile. Heres an article from my friends blog (click the word blog )..
You don’t have to be a Chinese to enjoy the festivities of the Chinese New Year. Experience once again the merging of two cultures as the City of Bacolod and the Filipino-Chinese Communities bring you the 2009 Bacolaodiat Festival, the 4th time for the city to hold the festival.
2008 has been a very good year for each of us. Bacolod really enjoyed the blessings that we received this year. A tremendous leap happened this year which brought Bacolod City in the limelight. Bacolod bagged the award as Best Performing City in WV and was included among the list of cities worldwide that have potentials to enter the top 50 emerging global outsourcing cities. These are just few of Bacolod’s glorious moments this 2008. Allow me to show you what we have gained this year and something to look forward to next year
May this 2009 be a better year for all of us. Lets all hope that this year will be more beautiful than 2008, let’s move forward and face the coming year with a SMILE!!!!
I would like to greet my readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. May this coming year be brighter and Better than 2008. Let’s all be thankful of the many blessings we have received and May the good Lord bless us all. Again, from the bottom of our Hearts…………..MERRY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE!!!
Its a wonderful night of spectacular fireworks display and disney music @SM grounds. Three teams from Manila and Bulacan ( the ZYRELL Fireworks from Bulacan, Pyro Haven (Manila) and LEE Fireworks (Manila)) showed off their fireworks display along with the disney classic music. The event started late ( 15 minutes to be exact) but its really worth the wait. We were on the 5th floor of Sylvia Manor Hotel, ready to take some shots of the entire event. We were quite worried about the weather coz it began to drizzle but fortunately, it stopped. A few minutes later, we heard people screaming and the lights at the back of SM were turned off, that signals that the show is about to start. The first group was ok, the second one was amazing, but the third group really impressed me with its first shot!!! The featured groups on December 20 (this coming saturday) will be the DSS Fireworks (Dumaguete), four-time grand champion of Buglasan Festival of San Carlos City; Nippon Ho Shi (Manila) and our very own Peacock Fireworks, Pyro Magic 2007 champion.
Now, let me share with you some of my shots of the pyromagic 2008 first Blast…
It was a cloudy afternoon when i left Manila on November 24, 2008. I was quite worried about my trip back home. I thought it will be a disturbing flight but thank God it wasn’t. Half way of our travel, i took my camera from my bag, getting ready to take some snaps of Bacolod’s view from above. When the Pilot announced that were approaching Bacolod for landing, I sat still and waited for a clear view of Bacolod as we approach the City of Smiles. After several minutes, were finally on top of Bacolod making our final turn. I turned on my camera and took some shots. I was amazed by the view of Bacolod. Its vast natural land scape is very beautiful and the sugarcanes look like a carpet neatly placed on the city skirts. Bacolod from above looks very wonderful, I’m sure Angels up there will surely smile as they look down and see Bacolod growing gracefully and beautifully.
Bacolod will experience again a night of fun and spectacular fireworks along with disney music for the 2nd pyromagic festival on Saturday, December 13, 2008. This event will be held at the SM grounds (fronting the bay area) at exactly 8pm. Three teams from Manilaand Bulacan will compete this saturday and the next three teams from Bacolod and Dumaguete will compete on the 20th. All will shoot their fireworks to the music of the Disney Classic. This is an event that you shouldn’t miss. See you there bacolodians!!!
