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.



By 1999, Bigby’s Café and Restaurant was revolutionizing the dining habits in the city. Families, young urban professionals, and businessmen have made it into their ultimate dining choice. The concept has evolved into a fun dining atmosphere that is manifested through its unique “worldly” decors that hang on every wall that are complemented by the wide array of wittingly-named dishes it serves in generous portions at reasonable prices.
Bigby’s Café and Restaurant is now located in major cities in both Visayas and in Mindanao. It has a total of 8 branches with its newest branch that officially opened today–May 28, 2017, Level 4, SM CDO Downtown Premier.
Dine at Bigby’s on any day during the opening week and get a chance to win special prizes!
Other Bigby’s branches are located at Centrio Ayala Mall, Cagayan de Oro City, SM City Cagayan de Oro, Abreeza Ayala Mall, Davao City, SM City Davao, Veranza Mall, General Santos City, Ayala Entertainment Center Cebu, and The Northwing, SM City Cebu.

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!

Thank you Iliganons for sharing your mouth-watering pizza products to all Kagay-anons! 

Now, that I have tried it for the second time around, rest assured that as a customer I will return time and time again because every meal that I had is unforgettable, every bite that I had is exquisite and the over-all experience that I had is legendary!

Enjoying the best pizza in town with my co-CDO bloggers!
This pizza is worth recommended for not just in Iligan, Cagayan de Oro, but the entire Philippines as well!

Get Rid of Cockroaches – Permanently!

Most people are freaked out at the mere sight of a cockroach. At worst, their saliva and droppings transfer diseases that can seriously harm humans. To get the most reliable information on fighting a cockroach infestation as well as a free inspection, click here.

In the meantime, you're scrambling for some way to fight off the little beasts as best as you can. Here are some tips that may give you an upper hand.

Start Out Naturally
When it comes to keeping cockroaches out of your home, it's best to go back to basics. Make sure your home is naturally doesn't appeal to roaches as a place to live. You can do this by:
·         Sweeping daily
·         Not leaving food out uncovered
·         Seal up cracks into your home
·         Repair water leaks
·         Remove trash from the kitchen every day
·         Clean your kitchen every evening before bed
These simple steps might seem tedious to do every day. But they really add up in terms of putting up a solid defense against a cockroach invasion.

There are also plenty of suggestions for 'natural' ways to poison or at least deter cockroaches from making themselves at home. A simple paste of sugar, water, and boric acid could do the trick. Check out a few more of these ideas here.

What's The Most Effective Cockroach Poison?
Lots of people report success in fighting cockroaches with a gel bait. This kind doesn't leave an overwhelming cloud of toxic chemicals in your home. Cockroaches seem fond of the taste, and the effect is multi-fold: the pests eat the poison, take some to share with the family, and pass it in their droppings which, in turn, are consumed by other roaches.

The only drawback is that you have to be careful of where you place the gel. While not really toxic to pets and humans, you still don't want any members of your family getting their 'paws' into the sweet roach-killer.

What If Nothing Is Working?
Try to be patient and hang in there as best as you can. Cockroach infestations can be difficult to remove. You might spot only two or three roaches, but that probably means there are 20 or 30 hiding where you can't see them. It's going to take some time to put a dent in their numbers.

This blog highlights a few good points and disclaimers when it comes to using a variety of products at home. You can't stop at just one! What worked for one case may not be effective for you.


It helps to familiarize yourself with a few fun facts about cockroaches so that you'll have a better idea of what approach to take. Even better, contact a professional pest control service like Fox Pest Control to get a customised cockroach-removal plan.
