Rotary Club of Blacktown City Medical & Dental Mission to Bacolod – Update

An Update Shared by Rotary Club of Blacktown City Member Pam Carne – 3 February 2024

The team put in a long day today, the alarm went off at 1.30am and we headed downstairs to the airport shuttle, for a 4.10am depart to Bacolod. And there at 5.30am was a very cheery greeting committee in the dark with a beautiful banner expressing their welcome.

A beautiful welcome at 5:30am
It is hard to smile before the sun comes up, even after being gifted such beautiful masquarade laes
A very special gift

After a delicious breakfast we headed off to our rooms for a short kip, and to familiarise our selves with the immediate neighbourhood.

A chat over breakfast with Rotarian Excel, about her work with I Home, and formerly with Homes for Humanity.

We were taken to a very special restaurant Sugba Sugba for one of the specialities chicken in salad.

Lunch was this delicious chicken dish, renowned in Bacolod. Serviced with garlic rice – not a veggie in sight
Happy smiles all around

Then a pamper afternoon for those of us who enjoy a massage, and return to the Hotel for a friendly evening with members of 3 Rotary Clubs, hosted by the Metro Club of Bacolod.

The members of the Rotary Club of Bacolod held a welcome dinner with a green themed evening here at our Hotel

We are off on our first Medical Mission tomorrow about 85klms away, so staying overnight. We are all excited and curious about how tomorrow will unfold.

The team ready for their first day on the job tomorrow.
