Pasalabuongs or souvenirs are a big part of Filipinos. No matter where they go and what they do, they always try to bring back a piece of memento not just for themselves, but for their loved ones as well. It can be anything really – textile, clothing, jewelry, and even food.

One of the easiest things to purchase and give as a pasalubong is popular local delicacies from the place you’ve visited. You can’t go wrong with it. 

Now, Bacolod City in Negros Occidental is among the many places in the Philippines that you can never go wrong in buying local delicacies as pasalubongs. The City of Smiles offers several authentic treats that you can take home for you and your loved ones.
