SM and Robinsons.. In Butuan?!

I don't how true is it... It's been a long time since I last visited Butuan.. But I heard that rumor long before I left Butuan.. But now, that rumor is circulating once again.. It may be false alarm, but maybe... maybe... as the adage goes, "when there's smoke, there's fire?!"

Accordingly, SM and Robinsons will soon rise near the vicinity of Gaisano Mall.  For now, they are trying to settle some legal issues which, for sure, will eventually end in a compromise that is beneficial to all parties concerned... including me?!

Maybe.  My property, which I am now selling, is located just barely less than a kilometer away from the new potential business district of Butuan.  I am selling it for a bargain but with this recent development... would it  still be wise for me to go ahead and dispose my property.. and worse, for a give-away price?

Now, I'm thinking...

Remembering Boy Daku...

Photo source: amazing butuan
I just got the news that the former mayor of Butuan, Democrito "Boy Daku" Plaza II, passed away last Friday afternoon.  Who would have thought that a strong man like him would soon succumb to death?  He had survived a kidney transplant operation about a week ago but he did not live long thereafter..

My condolences to his family and constituents...

Science High School in Butuan

I didn't know that Butuan does not have a science high school, not until I read this article from pia.gov.ph.  If I'm not mistaken, Surigao City, Butuan's neighboring city, has already its own science high school.

According to the latest news, the earnest planning of local government of Butuan is already underway to put up a branch of Philippine Science High School in the city.  For the complete details, please click this.

Not Again!

According to Manila Bulletin online, Mindanao (including Butuan) will suffer another rotating brownout which might start anytime this week.  It is feared that the dreaded brownout might last until end of this year.

Imagine the inconveniences one has to go through (again!) for this power shortage...

By the way, have I already posted in this blog that a friend of mine bought a generator about a year ago because of that rotating brownout?  Well, he will find that unit useful again in the coming days.. :(

Pirates Almost Did It To Balangay Sailors

Photo source:  The Borneo Post
It was scary to imagine that the Balangay team sailed into the pirate-infested waters somewhere off the coast of Mindanao.  They however managed to take refuge into the cove from the powerboats with the pirates on board.
