Small children will not be allowed anymore to ride motorcycles as Republic Act 10666 or known as the Children’s Safety on Motorcycles Act an Act providing safety of children aboard motorcycles will take effect on Friday, May 19, 2017. This follows the implementation of the Anti-Distracted Driving Act tomorrow.

However, it is legal if the child:

PostHeaderIcon Have you been to CDO SM Down Premier ? 

Cagayan de Oro, the gateway to Northern Mindanao and known as the City of Golden Friendship is one of the most competitive city in the country. Last May 12, SM CDO Downtown Premier opened its doors to the public , the 61st mall in the Philippines, the sixth in Mindanao, and the second in Cagayan de Oro.

Located at the busy intersection of Claro M. Recto Avenue and Osmena Street, the five-level, will serve shoppers in Cagayan de Oro, nearby cities and provinces in the Northern Mindanao area.

The mall will also have hundreds of stores – fashion boutiques, shoe stores, home stores, novelty stores, and more, including a Cyberzone for the tech generation, a Wellness Center and 4 state of the art cinemas.

​We brisked the crowd during the opening. My wife went to her favorite fashion stores while I spent my one hour inside a music store. I was expecting to see Guitar Center, ibanez bass and other gadgets I could only see online but they are yet to be ordered. Anyway, i just enjoyed the rest of the time hopping from sports stores to music store. We ended up eating in a very crowded fast food . My advise? Wait for a month before going inside the mall, its not yet fully occupied. You might be too excited and your expextations might fail.
