Self’s Dear Departed Dad grew up in the Daku Balay.

At the time of its construction (in the 1930s), it was the tallest building in Bacolod City.

It was four stories with a working elevator and a grand marble staircase.

The Japanese High Command occupied it during World War II.

Now, for the first time ever, it is being opened to the public.

Here’s a link to the announcement prepared by self’s cousins.

Stay tuned.
