Nacaya favors students, suggests brownouts be at daytime

City Councilor Ian Nacaya favors the students in Cagayan De Oro in the issue of brownout schedules. He urged the Cagayan Electric Power and Light Company (CEPALCO) to change all brownout schedules to daytime.

Nacaya thinks having brownout schedules at nighttime cause a lot of hassles.

“Students also have a hard time studying without proper light illumination and petty crimes in the city have already soared high,” Councilor Nacaya said.

He justified that if it was possible to neglect the brownout schedule last Sunday and have electricity the whole day then it would also be possible to change all schedules to daytime.

The environmental officer and customer and community relations supervisor of CEPALCO thinks it’s beyond their control. Lloyd Castillo says the brownouts depend on the load curtailment for the day. These loads are issued daily through a report by the National Grid Corporation.

Cagayan de Oro Brownout Schedule (March 17-28,2010)

CEPALCO just released a new public notice concerning the scheduled rotational brownouts in Cagayan de Oro for the 3rd and 4th week of March 2010, starting March 17 to 28.

Please find below the load shedding schedule [5 hours DAILY rotating brownouts] within the CEPALCO service area for the period March 17 to March 28, 2010 due to the continuing power supply curtailments imposed by the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines [NGCP] all over Mindanao. Again, CEPALCO would like to caution customers that the actual switch off and switch on time may vary from the announced schedule depending on the actual load curtailment levels imposed by NGCP on CEPALCO on a day to day basis.

Cagayan De Oro feels light with Pacquiao’s victory

People who watched Manny Pacquiao vs Joshua Clottey fight at SM Cagayan de Oro came out light and generally expectant. Excitement wasn’t in the air as they found out the result.

Were Kagay-anons already expecting Pacman’s victory over Clottey? Or did the people at SM CDO find the fight boring?

But at the end of the day, Manny Pacquiao won with a unanimous decision. Reading the fight’s rundown alone, it was a little obvious that our very own Pacman was at it.

Chillin at Chaibodia Bistro and Cafe

Among the city dwellers, a new chill-out place has risen. It’s Chaibodia Bistro and Cafe located at Tiano-Montalban right in front of Steve’s Grill and KTV. A mini-restaurant in Cagayan De Oro, Chaibodia boasts of its captured crowd chilling at the place almost everyday.

What can you do at Chaibodia Bistro and Cafe?
Eat, drink, and be merry.
It’s a very simple place with artsy-fartsy interior. It’s a good venue to chill with your buddies. It’s the ‘pa-steady’ kind of hangout at Chaibodia. The chill type.

Chaibodia has the right choices of food to suit the customers’ chill trip. Their must-try is the NACHOS with so far the best salsa made by the owner herself, Michelle “Chai-chai” Buhay Veloso. What’s good about the place is that it’s safe even if you know almost everyone, if not all, are chilling with cold alcoholic beverages. For one, the place has a 2am-curfew and ‘NO firearms/deadly weapons’ policy.

Chaibodia is safe and sound.

While chilling, you can also enjoy the alternative music trip. It’s a playlist by Chai. Most of the songs are those that stuck in our list of great alternative rock songs like Blind Melon’s, Goo Goo Dolls’, and Silverchair’s.
