Sinulog Festival 2018 in Cebu

Hey guys! So if you haven’t figured it out yet, that’s me right there. My name is Elmer G. Balbin Jr. and I am The Visayan Blogger 🙂

I am from Bacolod, Philippines and I currently work as a front-end web developer in one of the companies in Cebu. I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Information Technology way.. way.. back in 2013.

I launched my blog in December 2016 but only started to write more frequently a year later, in December 2017. Since then, it has undergone numerous changes including site redesigns, domain name updates, different web hosting providers, and even the focus of my articles. Blogging has not only provided me with a means to express myself, a steady side income, and new friends; but was always – and still is – a nice escape from everyday work life.

  • The Visayan Blogger’s first milestone happened on May 7, 2018, when it reached over 100,000 page views.

If you have any specific questions for me, please send me a message. I usually reply on the same day since me and my phone are basically inseparable. Anyway, thanks for dropping by 🙂

  1. Hi! Pwede po ba tayong makasakay ng Ceres bus from Carcar to Dumaguete, sa Carcar mismo mg-aabang ng bus? And, pwede rin bang makasakay sa ferry (baka exclusive lang sa mga pasahero ng Ceres yung ferry) if ever yung Ceres na sasakyan ko ay hindi papuntang Dumaguete (i.e. hanggang Bato, Oslob lang siya) bale ako nalang ang pupunta sa port to Dumaguete? Maraming Salamat!

    1. Hi Ron. I don’t think the bus will pick up passengers at Carcar. The boat is actually a barge (Maayo Shipping) and hindi sya exclusive sa Ceres, which means that you can freely ride it.

  2. Hi,

    We are planning to go to Bacolod next Month. It’s our first time to go there, Any suggestions how to get Bacolod by landtrip. Cebu to Bacolod po..

  3. Hi kuya, are you familiar sa terminal ng bus going to manila? From Dumaguete.

    Or may alam ka bang terminal ng bus sa Cebu going to Manila? Fullybooked na kasi ang 2go.

  4. Hello po. tanong po sana ako. kong ano ung sasakyan from bacolod para mapadali ung pagdating ko ng cebu. any fastcraft po. ba. san po ako sasakay. please po .. thankyou.

    1. Hi Mary ann. You could cut trips by riding vhire from Bacolod to San Carlos port, where you will ride the ferry to Toledo. Then from Toledo, another vhire.

  5. Hi Mr. Balbin! Thank you!
    I am from Sagay City attending training here in Cebu City. And today is our 6th day. Am looking up for the Ceres bus schedule via Escalante for tomorrow morning, hoping to catch the 11:15 schedule. Is it still the same? Or is there any change on this schedule?
