My Trip To Silab: Amlan, Negros Oriental

This was taken last May 2012 on our family vacation to my mother's homeland and rather it's our homeland too as my parent's were now living there for good. Silab Amlan, Negros Oriental is somewhere far from main road  and civilization, travel time takes about 30minutes to Silab proper via "Habal-habal" motorcycle for hire.

How To Get There? If you live somewhere in neighboring islands and provinces, Going to Negros Oriental (Silab, Amlan) can be reached by Airplane - their airport terminal is located in Dumaguete City (The capital city of Negros Oriental); Ceres bus; motorcycle; private vehicle... there are pedicabs and motorcycle for hire available at the nearest place.

Amlan municipality is comprised by 8 barangays namely: Bio-os, Jantianon, Jugno, Mag-abo, Poblacion, Silab, Tambojangin and Tandayag. I don't have much knowledge or travel experience about the neighboring barangays of Silab. But, they are somewhat familiar with my ears as what my mother revealed and testified her travel visit to neighboring barangays that was during her childhood days.

Barangay Silab is characterized by it's unruffled and undisturbed place. The tranquility of the place and the richness of it's reserved mother nature, that my beloved elders, relatives and my parents would love to stay in there. I do likewise have the same perception as they are, however, with the demands of time, to get updated with technology, network connectivity is not good in the place. There are some areas wherein acquisition of Internet service connection and or mobile network connectivity has been very rare.

However, some people living there do somehow seems hopeful that in some time, there is an existence of such that could get immediate updates of the latest trending topic and for some emergency cases.

Silab is reached with coconut trees and other kinds of fruit trees, sugarcane - the bread & butter for some locals. Other captivating aspects you can catch with Silab is their reserved mother nature. The wonder of existence of the river channel.

Every time we went to Negros Oriental, we'll always spare a time and the aggressiveness to go down that secretive river. Going down the river channel takes half an hour or more it depends on certain individuals. Down slope trail is not really difficult however, in heading back home is the hardest part in taking up hill slopes trek.
