Cardmaster started more than 10 years along Abejuela Street in Divisoria printing PVC cards for memberships and other ID cards. They transferred along Burgos Street later on and now they have 3 branches and the latest one is at the SM City Mall in Uptown, Cagayan de Oro City.


From a PVC card maker, Cardmaster now offers many more kinds of marketing collaterals as well, including signages and trophies and plaques including t-shirts and other kinds of apparels.

Finally, there is a mall-based service like this so it will be more accessible to have your marketing collateral requirements whether for your business or organizations needs. Visit them at the SM City CDO Uptown Mall located at the 3rd-floor level.

Solar Powered Condo Living at Primavera City

Condominium projects are sprouting all over Cagayan de Oro City nowadays – thanks to the growing economy of the Philippines – more investments are spilling over the city.

With so many options, newbie condo buyers will have a hard time choosing and deciding on what to buy.

But one thing that most condo buyers seldom consider in deciding to have their first units – that I learned when my family bought a condo unit in Metro Manila back then – is the monthly maintenance cost.

Primavera City by IDC

The upcoming Primavera City of Italpinas Development Corporation (IDC) is the true answer to having a state-of-the-art yet a low maintenance condo unit.

Powered by its own solar power plant, owning a unit on this condominium project will definitely have a lower monthly maintenance cost as the management could produce green energy from the sun which they will pass on to the condo units.

The innovative design of the building lessens its dependence on expensive power from the local grid.

IDC President Jose “Jojo” D. Leviste III said that by investing in an economically sized solar-power system, the residents of Primavera City will enjoy a lowered cost of living as the system contributes solar power to the building’s various functions.

The Primavera City will launch in the second quarter of this year and its Phase 1 involves the construction of two towers of integrated multifunctional buildings (commercial, office, residential) project with 11 floors each.

Located at the Pueblo de Oro Business Park, Upper Carmen, Cagayan de Oro (near SM City Cagayan de Oro). Phase 1 of the project entails an investment of about P653 million for 2 towers. When fully completed, Primavera City will have 7 green buildings including a high rise tower.

The first two towers of Primavera City Phase 1 are designed to have 337 units, 57 of them commercial units; 231 are studio-type; 22 are one-bedroom units, 27 are two-bedroom units and around 100 parking slots.

Their average sizes are 50 to 60 square meters for commercial units, 28 sqm for studio-type units, 47 sqm for the single-bedroom units, and 70 sqm for the two-bedroom units. This would surely be an exciting condominium project in the city that’s worth investing in.

You can now taste the original way of making pizza in Italy using a wood fired oven right here in Cagayan de Oro City!

Angelo’s Ristorante is the new authentic Italian restaurant in town started by Chef Angelo Obrero who studied cooking in Italy himself to learn how to cook the Italian way.
