Cagayan de Oro Rotating Brownout Schedule April 2015

CEPALCO released a new public notice regarding the scheduled 3-hour rotational brownouts that will be happening here in Cagayan de Oro in the next few days starting April 13-15, 2015. The reason behind the continuing power interruption in CDO is due to the Mindanao-wide power shortage. CEPALCO cautions customers that the actual switch off and switch on time may slightly vary from the announced power interruption schedule depending on the actual load curtailment level imposed by NGCP on CEPALCO on a day to day basis.

Cooling Summer up with Missy Bon Bon Gelato

Kagay-anons have a new way to cool summer up. The company that brought Cagayan De Oro’s pride Bigby’s cafe has come up with another delightful offering. Presenting…Missy Bon Bon Breadshop.

Missy Bon Bon Breadshop offers a variety of ‘to-go’ sweet delicacies and desserts. From cakes to gelatos, Missy Bon Bon knows well how to tickle the taste buds of both Kagay-anons and the tourists. Very famous among the locals lately is Missy Bon Bon Breadshop’s gelatos. Their gelatos come in different flavors. They have Vanilla Bean, Buko Lychee, Roasted Almond, Green Tea, Melon, and the classic favorite Ube.

Some of the flavors liked by many lately include Sansrival and Blueberry. I personally tried it and there’s not much difference in terms of taste between a slice of cake and a gelato. Just like Starbucks, it’s the experience that this breadshop offers. Imagine eating Blueberry Cheesecake but you’d want it to fit the summer season. So you want it very cold, hence, the Blueberry Cheese Gelato. Or maybe you’d like to eat a summer version of your classic coffee shop order Sansrival. Ask for it, they have it. The best so far is the summer experience of coffee. Coffee is just not the drink you’d like to have anytime in summer except at night time. But Missy Bon Bon Breadshop has come up with something that we can enjoy it without necessarily stirring a cup of coffee. And this is the Cappuccino gelato.

The Barn Lapasan, Cagayan De Oro’s newest restaurant

The famous ‘Lechon Manok’ streetside stalls now has its own restaurant in Cagayan De Oro. From being a simple store selling Liempo and Lechon Manok in various streets in Cagayan De Oro, The Barn has now a big restaurant that can accommodate people who want to dine in.

For foreigners, lechon manok is grilled chicken. It’s a very famous ‘cowboy’ style dish here in Cagayan De Oro. This type of food is not usually offered in Cagayan De Oro hotels. Liempo, on the other hand, is grilled pork meat. Both are very delicious.

The Barn restaurant is located at Lapasan, Cagayan De Oro near House of Japan. It has an acoustic area for musical presentations and a billiard table for those who would like to play while waiting for their dinner to be served. Same prices apply as their usual ones in stores.
