For just this week, a very reliable source from the Visayan Daily Star of Bacolod, has articulated that the present administration of Manokan Country is planning to sell the site to some 300 million peso investment!
But first, for those of you who don’t know Manokan Country, it is one of the famous landmarks of the City of Smiles and one of the major tourist attractions that Filipinos and foreigners alike would love to visit while in Bacolod.
It is one of the landmarks that have become a vital part of Bacolod! And its incomparable Chicken Inasal has even made the City of Smiles famous! But just for the sake of commerce, the site will soon be demolished? Huhuhu… I can’t bear not passing by to eat there when going through SM!
It’s like, our very own Chicken Inasal was born there! Like chicharon of Cebu, empanada of the Ilocanos, and Bicol Express of Bicolanos! I cannot even imagine where the cheerful people of MassKara Festival will stop by, if not at the Manokan Country. I wonder if they will ever be cheerful!
And hey, moreover! I also heard that there have been meetings already being held on how to implement this scheme, and aside from the unfaithful payment of rentals, this present administration just had the greatest excuse to slowly move the occupants out of the site: the road repair thing nearby!
