Grill Hacks

There's nothing like grilling out with the family as a way to enjoy the outdoors. A benefit of a grill is that it doesn't require any electricity, which cuts back on the utility bill, and you usually don't retain all of the grease that you would if you were to fry foods all the time or even bake them. There are a few hacks for your grill that will make it easier to keep the device clean and even upgrade your experience with faster cooking times. Grill grates are an investment that you want to make as they are easier to use than placing the foods that you want to prepare directly on the grilling surface. You can get disposable grates or those that are like a pan that you would put in the oven. These are easy to clean and can be reused each time you grill.

How to Get Your Dream Car Within Budget


For many, the expense of buying and running a vehicle is so great that it is hard to imagine being able to afford your dream car. Instead of selecting your ideal features and finishes, you may have to settle for whatever model you can afford, but once budget has been decided, it is the look and aesthetic of a car that draws us to buy it – there’s an inner battle : do you deny yourself all of the latest features and be too thrifty, or do you splash out for the sake of appearances and feel too reckless? Luckily there are ways to get the best of both worlds. Below is a list of ideas on how to get your dream car within budget.

Start Your Food Adventures at Bigby’s Newest Home in SM CDO Downtown Premier

The Bigby’s Café Concept was first introduced in the city of Cagayan de Oro on December 8, 1998. Its creators came up with an idea of creating an atmosphere fit for an adventure into the different cuisines of the world. The menu, the interior design and service style were created to position the concept midway between fine dining and fast-casual dining. This format has developed into the Bigby’s Café and Restaurant System.

The City's Local Pizza Is Now In CDO!

Home of the famous MADCOW pizza!
"It packs heat, serious heat!"
Have you heard about Pizzarella? Personally, I have heard it when I was still in Iligan and was able to taste it and I can truly say that they make the best pizza in town!





Pizarella is situated in the heart of Iligan City and was opened 5 years ago (April 2012) by the Portado siblings which started from a simple dream (+ prayers) that made it eventually into a reality!

With their faith and hard-works, they are now able to provide their diners with finely crafted pizzas, using the freshest ingredients from the local vendors. Pizzarela's are offering a savory Italian and Filipino recipes inspired out from their own kitchen recipes.

Yesterday, (May 26, 2017) a rustic-inspired yet with contemporary cozy sensitivity Pizzarella opens their 4th stores in Corrales St., Cagayan de Oro (2 in Iligan and 2 in CDO). Now, they are hoping to open more soon!
