Bacolod is known for sugar.  Sugar equals sweets.  A perfect ending for each golfing day.
One is entitled after all to some sweets after walking 8 kilometers under rain everyday to play golf.  One of the highlights  during the recent 19th LUZVIMIN Ladies tournament in Bacolod was eating out after the game and "pasalubong" shopping for sweets.
First stop : Pendy's

Lots of pasalubong to choose from here...

                                                   Piyaya. Especially good with coffee!

                                     Caramel Tarts for only Php 205/ pack

                                        Flaky Hopia which is good for snacking on the golf course

All the "free tasting" before the purchase.  Good thing the sales lady was so generous..... Besides the Forest Ladies bought pasalubong like it was the last time they were ever going to Bacolod.....   Seriously.

As I don't have much of a sweet tooth these were what appealed to me most:

                                                   Peanuts with Dilis perfect with my ice cold beer

                                                               Spicy Vinegar

Next stop - Bob's.

Bob's has been making great breads and sweets for 46 years now.

Their Piyayas came in attractive packaging.

They also had an assortment of cakes to choose from.

Bottled goodies too.

Last stop before hitting the airport back to Manila was lunch at Tratorria Uma.  Before we could even order, there was one more pasalubong passed around... mini Piyayas called.... "Piayitos".  They were small, flat and yummy.  Not too sweet!

Lots of food sharing went on...

The portions were quite generous.

Who says a pizza can't be healthy?

My favorite was the Pasta ala Uma with shrimp and pancetta topped with caviar and truffle oil.
