8 Facts about CD-R King

Who doesn’t know CD-R King?

I bet many Filipinos(the adults, teens and even those who are chaperoned) have been to one CD-R King store.

Several Filipinos are really into affordable gadgets and thank God, there is a group of businessmen who have established a tech gadget store for every Juan.

There are many things we have to know about CD-R King, which is undoubtedly, the leading tech gadget provider in the Philippines.

I have a list of them which I have a learned from a group of area managers here in Cebu.

  1. CD-R King is one of the leading stores where you can buy gadgets–from tech gadgets, appliances, office and school supplies to mobile phones– CD-R King has them.

  2. Cebu will host the biggest branch of CD-R King in EMall, the prime mall in the south district of Cebu City. The store has an area of 327 square meters.

  3. Kenko World is one of the brands that CD-R King carries. It is a brand of housewares, office supplies, school supplies and even party supplies.kenko world1

  4. CD-R King has 23 branches in Cebu and with over 300 nationwide.

  5. Cebu is home to six Kenko branches.

  6.  Cd-R King has its own brand mobile phones in which its latest model is run with Octa Core. Amazing, isn’t it? But I haven’t seen a model yet so I might as well contact CD-R King to lend me one for a review.Cd-R King mobile phone

  7. CD-R King is now selling California Ebikes. Its biggest branch in EMall will carry these bikes soon by the end of April. And I’m hoping here that I can get one from CD-R King.ebike-for-sale-ridge

  1. CD-R King started as a store for CD’s and CD-R’s, thus the name. They began selling the item way back in 1999 and now they’ve evolved into one of the most visited stores to buy affordable gadgets.

 

I know you may have doubts about the quality of CD-R King products. I do. But admit it.  Their products are really affordable that you can be enticed to buy one tech gadget to another if you base your purchasing decisions on price.

5 reasons why it’s possible to experience Sweet Heaven with Sugr

I am really proud of my friend, Red Yumang, for taking off his pastry business.

Sugr is undoubtedly one of the next best things to happen in Cebu. The marketing thrust that the owner spends in social media is effective.

One of the good things about Sugr is that the owner is a food blogger and he knows how to market his products in the social media. And of course, the foremost reason why his brand takes off is because of the pastries, cakes and rolls that are really mouth-watering just looking at them on Facebook.

Being a fan of this brand, I have come up with five reasons why Sugr can bring anyone to Sweet Heavens.

1) Pictures alone can make you say, ‘Oh, Yummy!’

Cinnamon Rolls Peanut butter oreo
3) The cinnamon rolls are really heavenly. I tried them and they’re really WOW!

Cinnamon pleasures in boxes

 

3) The sweetness of the cinnamon rolls are in a box. These rolls are boxed to tease your palates so you can order.

4) The Google cake, which is a fruit cake, is super special and yes, it’s super-sized. It tempts you to gluttony.

5) And finally, the cupcakes are designed to whatever you like. And since it was a special day, the Google products were the themes.

I really have Red and Sugr to thank for this cake. Thank you!

Megaworld hikes Cebu investment for its Mactan township to Php 30B

Perhaps, the largest property developer to bring in more investment in the island of Mactan is Megaworld. Megaworld has recently announced its plan to expand the Mactan Newtown in area from the 16 hectares to 28.8 hectares and another hike in investment with a whopping Php 30 billion. This is good news in the real estate industry in Cebu. Mactan Newtown now offers “Live-Work-Play-Learn and Beach” environment within a township. If the total development of Mactan Newtown is done which is expected to happen around 2017 or 2018, then it will be a “resort city within a city”.

Mactan Newtown’s LIVE environment started with the development of condominiums.

It’s WORK structure is what initially defines Mactan Newtown though.

Mactan NewTown

The PLAY aspect of Mactan Newtown is still an enigma to me.  I believe it is integrated in its condomiums. Of course, the play there is about basking in the sun in the pool area or shopping, which is a kind of “play to shopaholics”.

However, McDonald’s would be an alternative to the PLAY section of Mactan Newtown.

And then there’s the LEARN dimension of this township which was relayed to me in a previous presscon I attended.

By 2016, Megaworld will be opening the Newtown School of Excellence, a state-of-the-art educational institution that will be supervised by the Lasallian Schools Supervision Office (LASSO). Sitting on a 7,000 square meter property near the township’s main entrance,  the school will initially open to students in the primary level for the school year 2016-2017. Mactan Newtown School of Excellence

The exciting part of it all is the BEACH, a new addition that could really spice up Mactan Newtown.

mactan newtown beach Megaworld is expected to build five hotels in the township which will include two beachfront hotels overlooking the Hilutungan Channel. The company is also building its own exclusive, world-class beach club at the township’s beachfront, and sports facilities that will promote active lifestyle by the beach. In January this year, Megaworld announced the expansion of the township from the initial 16 hectares to 28.8 hectares due to the acquisition of a prime property fronting the historic Mactan Shrine and its partnership with Landmark, Inc. to develop the 11-hectare beachfront property formerly known as Portofino Beach, which is directly connected to the township. Mactan-Newtown-Map-2   And so, you have there… The amazing part of the press conference which I attended yesterday would be the Skype conference of Mr. Noli Hernandez, president, Megaworld Cebu Properties, Inc.

I hoped they used Google Hangout instead. But I think, it’s better because we have two good-looking guys to face the media of Cebu yesterday. IMG_0182 Photos: Mactannewtown.info, Megaworld, Matudnila.com, Shankybaby.blogspot.com, Jayseeblabs.com
