Bacolod, Mon Amour: July 2011 Edition

Self spends a lot of hours on her laptop:

The Hotel in Bacolod, Negros Occidental

Self read three books in two weeks:  quite a change from the last time she was in Bacolod (January 2011), when it took her a whole month to finish reading Antonio Muñoz Molina’s Sepharad.

So far, self has read and finished Edith Wharton’s The House of Mirth and Bernhard Schlink’s (short, magnetic) The Reader.  A few days ago, self began Bernhard Schlink’s Homecoming.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.

    Another emotional picture. Wow- The light on your laptop, books and the way it falls on the crumpled blanket says it all.

    It was the day after my birthday. I was about to leave Bacolod. I was being coy with the name of the hotel — ha ha ha! As if everyone doesn’t know by now!

    Thank you, Stella! Can’t wait to see YOUR pictures of Bacolod in February! They tore down the bowling alley in Santa Fe Resort, remember the one with duck pins? The one dating from the 1950s? The year after I took you there.
