Sundate at The Ruins for the First Time

Unexpected momentous date at Talisay Ruins in the afternoon after our Sunday services, my wife and I have. In so doing we have a mutual feeling of happiness and excitement. She has been to the place where she has never dreamed of for she seldom goes to outing, to field trip or whatever where she could be in a tourist spot and the like.

My wife and I have never gone together lately for an outing. The time that we usually go out for an excursion together with our family is every January 1 of the year. This year we spent it at the Soleo Beach, here in our locality, particularly in San Enrique, Negros Occidental, Philippines. We did enjoy so much.

The recent we went together for an outing was in the afternoon of Sunday. Our daughter-in-law, Carissa invited us to go with her siblings who are coming from La Castellana to visit The Ruins in Talisay, Negros Occidental. The Ruins were historical relics of the highly acclaimed architectural design of the mansion of Don Mariano Ledesma Lacson built for his beloved wife, Maria Braga.

My wife and I as we joined Carissa's sisters, Zarah and Mae An; youngest brother Eron, and nephew Elyan seated comfortably at the back of the motorized tricycle driven by our son-in-law, Almon, the hubby of our eldest daughter, Dona Greece.

Rebing's Exposure at The Ruins





How excited was my wife, Rebing as she arrived at The Ruins. She right took a posterity pose together with her smart, 4-year old granddaughter, Sophie. She visited every nook of the place not only the lagoon (golf course), but also the historical building, The Ruins. She had never been to fantastic place like The Ruins.

I have been to this place last December 31, 2011. I joined with my nephew's daughter, Ricalyn who has just been married to Glenn Salas. And their visit was a part of their honey moon itinerary. I was profoundly amazed of the durability and the strength of the building structure that had last for a century. As I read its historical background, I appreciated how the love of a sugar baron like Don Mariano for his wife, Maria that he caused the construction of this mansion.
