Carbin Reef, one of the best place (for me) in Negros Occidental. So glad I stumbled on the awkward traveler‘s article of Carbin Reef, i have to be there before the year ends.

The Awkward Traveler

*This is part of my #ProjectNegrosOccidental series where I aim to visit all 32 towns and cities of Negros Occidental, my home province.

I was in second year high school when I last visited Carbin Reef, although I just live a few kilometers away. That was 15 years ago, before my brother was even born. Our entire batch went on a field trip to Carbin Reef. It was quite a memorable experience for all of us especially because we spent a night sleeping (or not sleeping) in the tower which had no walls.

Hotcake, finally

Streetfood are amazingly delightful to eat…It’s tasty and inexpensive.

Taste – almost the same I devour in the street


Looks – forgot the yellow food coloring… I failed in that area =)

It was a good try for a first timer. I will surely make one again probably next weekend.
