Top 3 Reasons to Shop at S&R

Kagay-anons have finally experienced word class shopping as S&R Membership shopping opened in CDO last July 28, 2016. For those of you who haven’t visited the store yet, it is located along Kauswagan Highway, before arriving Bulua Bus Terminal. 

S&R is a membership-shopping club that provides a wide selection of imported as well as local items in value packed sizes to suit your personal and business needs.

If you are not yet a member, you can visit the store and apply for membership. (You may also click HERE for additional information.) 

Here are my top 3 reasons why I love shopping at S&R:

1. Imported Goods 
I was glad to find a lot of imported chocolates, chips, ice cream, cosmetics, clothes, toys inside the shop. All the stuff you see inside your relative’s Balikbayan box (which you waited for months) can now be found at S&R.

2. Pizza 
S&R New York Style Pizza is a must try. It’s huge, yummy and affordable. A big slice is worth only P99 with drinks and a box is worth Php549. Eating pizza is one of the best things to do before shopping as the say “never shop with an empty stomach”.

3. Baked Goods 
When the store first opened on July 28 my aunt visited the store just for their breads, cakes and muffins. Their chocolate chip muffin is one of the best I tried. Their baked goods are so good because it is freshly baked using imported ingredients.

The store is open daily from 9am to 9pm. You can visit S&R Facebook Page to find out great deals and promos.

Choobi Choobi Opens in Limketkai CDO

Choobi Choobi, a family oriented casual dining restaurant opened their 2nd branch in Cagayan de Oro City last May 1, 2016 at the 2nd Level East Annex Building of Limketkai Mall.

Choobi Choobi is derived from a Fookien word which means "to enjoy" and that's how the "Lingaw Lingaw Kaon!" tagline of the restaurant  was originated.
Ms. Erich Gonzales, a Kapamilya Star and Choobi Choobi's brand ambassador was present during the store's grand launching. She had fun with the fans at the mini-program earlier before the opening and welcomed questions during the press conference.

Choobi Choobi may sound like a Chinese or a Korean Restaurant but it's basically an all Filipino Restaurant. Their house specialties are mostly shrimps, because they grow their own shrimps. But, for a person who is allergic to sea foods particularly shrimps I can't really tell how delicious it is but here's a picture of their Stan's Fried Black Pepper Shrimp to show how appetizing their shrimps are.

I tried a little bit of their Chillean Mussels in a Bag to satisfy my curiosity. It's was okay for me but if you like to put a spicy twist on your mussels try it with Spicy gata.

I like their Grilled Pompano too...

If you are like me who is allergic to sea foods, fret not! You can try their best ever tasting pata -- the Choobi Pata, crispy on the outside but soft and juicy on the inside. The Choobi Pata has been awarded as the best crispy pata in the Philippines for 2014 and 2015.

Fellow Kagay-anons, what are you waiting for? Mangaon nata sa Choobi-Choobi!

A Visit to Uratex CDO Plant and Showroom

RGC Group of Companies, the company behind the top foam brand Uratex has opened a new plant and a showroom in Cagayan de Oro City. The opening of the new plant and the showroom is part of the company’s commitment to expand in Visayas and Mindanao. Uratex is a brand known for its commitment to product quality and excellence ensuring that its foams are produced with a high degree of product, superiority and world class quality.

I was one of the bloggers who had a chance to visit the newly opened Uratex manufacturing plant and showroom last April 11, 2015. During the event, I had the opportunity to check out their mattresses and other products like beddings, furniture, fabrics and etc. But one thing got my attention was their mattress. I had my first encounter with Uratex mattress when it was displayed at Ace Hardware at SaveMore Capistrano. I was in love with it at first glance but sad to say customers were not allowed to sit or lie down on it.

I am thankful during my visit to the showroom because I finally had the chance to try their mattress. This is the best thing about visiting a showroom because customers are given the chance to lie down or sit on each mattress so they can find which bed or mattress suits them best.

Lying down and sitting on a Uratex mattress was indeed very comfortable. To be honest, I really wished to take it home.

Here are some photos I took inside the showroom...

We also had the chance to visit the manufacturing plant. We were able to witness how the foam is processed. I wish I can share photos in here but picture taking was prohibited inside the plant. The CDO Uratex plant now produces a minimum of 1,000 foams a day.  

If you are looking for a new mattress, you can check out Uratex’s Pure Fresh Collection which is ideal for people with allergies. If you are looking for a perfect balance of comfort and support, specifically for spine alignment check out their Orthopaedic Support Collection. For superbly comfortable mattress you can check their Fine Elegance Collection.

Visit the Uratex showroom in CDO today at Cugman, Cagayan de Oro City.
