Higalaay 2017 Activities in Centrio Ayala Mall


Our city, Cagayan de Oro, is packed with festive activities for the month of August on Higalaay 2017 Festival. 

Let us read a little background of Higalaay Festival below.

The Higalaay Festival (formerly known as Kagay-an Festival, then to Higalaay Kagay-an Festival in 2014) is a festival held each year in Cagayan de Oro, Philippines, every 28th day of August, celebrating the feast day of St. Augustine – patron saint of the city. (Wikipedia)

If you’re wondering what Higalaay Festival means, the answer is “Friendship Festival“. Higalaay comes from the Cebuano word “higala” which means “friend”. This is based from what the city of Cagayan de Oro is being tagged as the City of Golden Friendship.

For the city events for this month, it will be posted on a separate blog post.

Meanwhile, here are some of the events from one of the malls in the city, Centrio Mall.


Happy Higalaay 2017, Kagayanons and friends! ☺

Pilipinas Shell holds Shell Bike Fair 2016 in CDO


The Philippines is home to a strong 4-million motorcycle community that still continues to grow everyday. The recent rise in number of motorcycle riders for the past couple of years has cemented the popularity of the two-wheeled vehicle, making it an indispensable mode of transportation for Filipinos all over the country.

Coming from a successful celebration of all things motorcycle last year, Pilipinas Shell takes things to the next level by hosting a bigger and grander Shell Bike Fair 2016. To show Shell’s appreciation for the motorcycle community, this year’s Shell Bike Fair is a series of three grand events in Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. The second leg of the three-part celebration was made possible by Shell Advance, Shell V-Power Nitro+, and Shell Select.

Shell Bike Fair 2016

Last September 3, the second leg of the Shell Bike Fair 2016 was held at the Limketkai Atrium in Cagayan de Oro through a day filled with games and entertainment for the company’s valued customers. Upon entering the world-class location, the attendees were treated to fun demos and games at the different booths set up throughout the venue.


Exciting performances by Callalily and Gracenote plus other surprise celebrity appearances brought the house down, with the crowd partying along to their favorite hits. The event ended on a high note as several motorcycle clubs received special prizes and three lucky guests brought home their brand new motorcycles.

Partners on the Road

Shell aims to demonstrate that it is a trusted partner of motorists in their every ride. Using Shell Advance can help provide easier engine starts, as well as long-term cleanliness and overall maximum protection, for a smoother ride on the road. Shell’s world-class lubricants go hand in hand with the use of Shell V-Power Nitro+, Shell’s premium performance fuels, which are designed to fight gunk and corrosion. And lastly, Shell aims to make every visit to a gas station worthwhile through the wide array of snacks, refreshments and hot meals that Shell Select offers for riders on the go.

“For over 100 years, Pilipinas Shell’s products and services have evolved to meet the current needs of Filipino motorists. We want our customers to know that Shell is every Filipino motorist’s partner on the road. Aside from quality lubricants and fuels, offerings Press Release such as the Shell Select convenience store, Shell Helix Oil Change+, and other integrated services, Shell has evolved into more than just a gas station – it is a pit stop that fuels both you and your motorcycles,” said Anthony Lawrence Yam, Pilipinas Shell Vice President for Retail.


Don’t miss out on the final leg of the Shell Bike Fair 2016 as it culminates in the World Trade Center, in Metro Manila on September 24. For more information, visit

RareJob Philippines Generate Opportunities Through Envizion




With the goal to expand and to cater to the increasing demand of English services in Japan, RareJob expands in Cagayan de Oro today through Envizion Philippines. Present in the grand opening were founders of RareJob Japan, Tomohisa Kato, and Gaku Nakamura; one of RareJob’s directors, Takeshi Shimomata, and CEO of Envizion, Yasushi Nishijo. The opening was also attended by Gian Christiane Nava of the Corporate Planning Office of RareJob Philippines, President of the ICT Council, Stephanie Caragos; Jonathan Adolfo, Executive Director of CDO ICT Business Council, Timothy Andrew Salera and Eileen San Juan of the Investment and Promotions Center together with Maricel Casino-Rivera of the City Information Office.

RareJob’s current pools of home-based tutors are mostly from Luzon and Visayas. The expansion in Cagayan de Oro aims to extend opportunities to Mindanao and to provide a certain level of commitment to its existing and potential clients. Due to RareJob’s business model of having home-based tutors with flexible schedules, the company encountered challenges in delivering this desired commitment. To deliver this ideal, a new company which is Envizion Philippines, was conceptualized.

RareJob and Envizion shares the same vision of “Chances for everyone, everywhere”. Staying true to RareJob’s vision, the company decided to open up chances to even more Filipinos by setting up Envizion in Cagayan de Oro.

Being the “Gateway to Northern Mindanao,” Envizion Philippines saw a promising pool of skilled individuals and developing reliable infrastructure for online transactions in Cagayan de Oro as a deciding factor in choosing the city as the next base for its operations. To date, Envizion Philippines has employed over 60 Center-Based Tutors and is aiming to fill in the 250-seater CDO site within the year located at the 8th Floor of the One Providence Building in Lifestyle District. Applicants can send in their resume to or call 0917 628 9717.


About Envizion Philippines, Inc.: Envizion Philippines, Inc., is a subsidiary of RareJob, Inc. RareJob is the leader in providing online English tutorial services to Japanese students. Envizion Philippines is located at the 8th Floor, One Providence Building, Lifestyle District, Cagayan de Oro.
