Welcome to Bacolod!

Welcome to Bacolod.

Hi, as you gather my name is Stephen Bentley or Steve for short. I am from the UK and I am a former barrister, police officer, sales manager, truck driver, motorcycle courier etc etc.

I firmly believe I have many stories to tell owing to my varied work and life experiences. I hope you will be entertained.

I love Bacolod and the Philippines.



This is my new home and my new life.

I am lucky to share it with Zabrina. She is a native of Canetown, Victorias which is about a 45 minute drive from Bacolod.

Bantayan Island, Cebu

Bantayan Island, Cebu

Although we live in a suburb in the city of Bacolod, we are close to the ocean and the mountains of Negros Island. We both love the beach and part of my writing here will be devoted to the wonderful beaches to be found all through the Philippines.

I write this by way of an introduction and hope that you get to know me, and Zabrina, better over the passage of time.

Thanks and hope to see you soon.
