  1. I just asked the stallholders at RFM and they confirmed that RFM was bought by ROBINSONS, and according to calbayognon, the renovations would start momentarily and by december RFM would be shut and the complete construction would start

    1. Very good information to know. I’ll be sure to insert that information at the website. Probably in tomorrow’s post.

      1. about all these stuff, robinsons, gaisano, calbayog progressing, this page is getting too trafficked with posts

        1. I don’t know if I should make a whole page just for that. I mean how much information could there be? Maybe I could figure out something. But I will, for sure, be putting all information I get, confirmed or unconfirmed, in the blog.

  2. well, gaisano intially only takes 8-10 months like robinson tacloban and ormoc, while robinsonns tacloban took 1.5 years

      1. but again paperwork still needs to be filled and other stuff, I’m exited to, we don’t need to go to tacloban to shop anymore, it’ll probably cater the shopping necessity of the whole island

  3. the government wanted to make another electric company a long time ago because SAMELCO management was very corrupt

      1. well there was only one corrupt guy, and the government fired him, right now they are still recovering from there losses

        1. Seems like they are trying to recover their losses through the customers. All those taxes and fees they charge seem excessive.
          But things are improving so hopefully soon all these problems will be solved and we can work on new problems.

  4. just got this from sksycrapercity, ROBINSONS has both 7 hectares at the existing RFM so another mall for calbayog that would probabaly include a supermarket

      1. yes, according to the thread, but I don’t think they’ll build a 7 hectare mall, they’ll probably just build a mall for what they need, and if it works they’ll expand

        1. So both malls in the same area of is one actually going to be downtown? It’s still confusing isn’t it.

          1. Mall competing against each other for our business is always good for us.
            I wish there were 2 electric companies here so the same thing would happen.

    1. I just told Lita about it and she said she heard the same thing from some construction works that were eating here. She just heard it this afternoon.

      1. nice,calbayog is on the boom, me I heard it from my schoolmates mom and it was confirmed by @calbayognon

        1. Really nice. I’ve been telling people around here that I suspected this for awhile. Ever since this Ciriaco Hotel was built. The owner must have had some inside information to build such a hotel in the middle of nowhere, that will be somewhere soon.

          1. I also wondered about that, since all of the hotels here in calbayog are low class, he suddenly changed the luxury here to high class, about robinsons I think it’ll be 1-2 years till it’ll be finished

          2. Seems like if there are 2 of them that both will be 1-2 years. I’m happy to have them coming, but now I want them NOW.

  5. Maybe they’ll put in the mall but since rawis and bagacay is where the public market, bus terminal and gaisano is, they’ll probably just open a drive-thru branch to attract both buyers from gaisano and the public market

  6. Five Star Commercial is now a mall typer
    here’s the list of occupants when they oppen
    department store
    Mang inasal

      1. a famous barbecue restaurant chain in the Philippines, I also heard that Mcdonald is considering to open in the highway in front of PNB

        1. I wonder if McDonalds would do any good around here. There should be 2 Jollibee’s here soon. That might be too much for Micky D’s to handle.

    1. I seen one of those, I just didn’t realize it was a taxi. I hope they are going to limit the # of vehicles downtown, if they just have to do this.

  7. home for the aged is a retirement home, the government already is planing to remove those pajak-pajaks and replace them with motorized vehicles, they are already forbidden to enter at J.D. Avelino Ave.

    1. They’re going to remove the pajak pajak’s? That seems like a backwards thing to do. Motorized vehicles just cause more pollution, smoke and noise. I didn’t know the pajak-pajak’s were not allowed on any street downtown. I never saw a street that they were not on. But heck I don’t even know which one is J.D. Avelino Ave. I remember several streets downtown, but not that one. I’ve heard of it, but I just don’t remember seeing it.

      1. Okay, never mind. I have my answer. J. D. Avelino ave is from the LTO office to the bridge. That city ordinance just went into effect this month. They did it because of the growing congestion in the area.
        Did I get all that right?

          1. I don’t like that they will ban the pajak-pajaks from downtown. I thought that one of the good features of Calbayog was that they did not allow the jeepneys downtown, but the pajak pajaks not there makes no sense to me. Are they planning to make drop off stations around the outside of downtown and on the highway?

  8. One thing you might try is for you and ado to the door man or lady at front desk a small amount od money for every customer sent to you guys.I was wondering do you use a cell phone also or just your landline,seems like you have alot of trouble with it where as cell phone is much easier,or do you need land line to get internet,if not what internet service do you have.In subic we used smart service threw a small satilite dish was very good with pretty good speed.

    1. Yes one of the plans I was hatching in my head was to leave a flyer at the hotel and let the person at the front desk know that. I didn’t think about the door man though. We might have to slightly raise the prices for that though. To do this trip, Ado is not doing his normal everyday route and the amount he was asking for was not much higher than the average he makes per day on his all day route. I told him he should charge at least P4000 if he was including gas, but he figured a lower price would entice people more.
      In this house we only use a land line, but if I need to use a cell phone, there are plenty around here. I have a cell phone and so does Lita, but they don’t pick up reception in our house. We always have to go outside to use it. Not sure if that’s the phone or the house.
      After reading the post you should know that I use Globe. When it is working properly, it’s good enough for me. If I get anymore problems I’m going to really dig into other services though and I’ll check that Smart satellite one.

      1. The first few times i came to calbayog i would ask the
        door man about renting a motorbike,he would find one for me and he would get alittle cut of the money,was good for me,him and the bike could hand out cards and when custermer brings card back to you doorman gets say 100 peso,works all over the world.
