A LIFE WELL SPENT
Recently, wines around CDO are easy to come by. Almost all major malls and supermarkets around the city have wineries. SM City and SM Savemore supermarkets have them, Robinsons Supermarket at LimKetKai, also Ayala Mall Supermarket and there is this dedicated wine store named The Wine Cellar located at JR Borja Ext..
Of these, the Ayala Mall Supermarket boast a wide and varied collection of wines (white, red, sparkling, etc) although I have never been to The Wine Cellar. Must visit this sometime. I've been reading a lot about Pinot Noir (Pee-Noo-Nwahr) and since been on the hunt. I found a couple of bottles in Ayala Centrio, which is from California and New Zealand and priced at Php700+ and Php900+ respectively.
Ever wonder what barangay in CDO is the most populous with respect to land area? Well you can look for yourself. According to national statistics for CDO year 2010, barangay 18 ranked the highest in population per land area. Barangay 18 is located between Magsaysay St. and Capistrano St. , Del Pilar St and the Marcos Bridge area.
Areas also ranking in higher population per land area are Barangays 17, 15 and 13. These are areas around and near barangay 18.

The new party venue in town.
This is a good place to hold your team building activity or birthday parties. The place includes a 5ft deep pool, videoke machine with projector and a complimentary airconditioned room.
The place is located at Zone 7, Barra Opol, Misamis Oriental, CdeO. What sets this venue apart from the others is that it offers an exclusive use of the place. Aside from the exclusivity, you don't need to worry of bringing plates and other utensils as they provide them for you. You can also use the kitchen if you need to cook something.
The staff are very accommodating and helpful as well. Arnold was the guy who waited on us the whole time we were there. and showed us around the place.
This is a photo of the airconditioned room located at the second floor.
See map below for the location of the place. For bookings you can call Larry at 09174111588 / 09222774222
My first motivation for running is just to get fit and loose some baby fats. I've been playing badminton for atmost 4 years, and let me tell you, you won't slim down if you don't cut on the FOODS. Clearly its not working for me. I have to increase my playing time to burn more calories which i can't because I lack the time (being a new father and all the baby stuff to take care of). Or I can stop eating which is a difficult vice to get rid of. Hehe. And of course I can just introduce a new activity to burn additional calories and still have the time (run in the morning when baby is asleep hehe) for some baby stuff. So i thought, what about running? Its all the craze I've been hearing.
So i've started running. With the goal of loosing those baby fats. Last Dec 2012 I did some practice runs and started out with some light jogs. I log my runs using www.mapmyrun.com website and used their android app for tracking my pace, distance and time. After a month, I thought, these darn smartphones are just so heavy in the pocket that I decided to invest in a running watch. I've bought a Garmin FR10 and log my runs using the Garmin Connect site.
I'm planning to post a review in the Garmin FR10...hmmm..maybe..hehe. For now, I'm loving that I can use it for running and just an everyday watch.
Keep running...Next up, 5k Fun Run...
