Oro supports port expansion
Wednesday, March 2, 2011




THE Cagayan de Oro City Council said Tuesday that it supports the resolution seeking the construction of a P500-million modern roll on-roll off (Ro-Ro) facilities at the city port in Barangay Macabalan.

The resolution was earlier submitted for approval by the Port Manager Advisory Council (PMAC).

In a special report, Councilor Alden Bacal said it is high time for the city to catch up with other areas in the country by rehabilitating the port of the city for it to be converted from just a "backdoor" to a "front door" of greater opportunities.

Bacal said Cagayan de Oro, known as the city in bloom, blossom and in boom, attracts more tourists, thus the need to modernize the port.

"The modern Ro-Ro facilities will maximize the berthing space at the port to bare the strong Republic Nautical Highway program of the national government," he said.

Bacal said based on PMAC's proposal, the Ro-Ro facilities will be constructed at berths 1-5 near the passenger terminal complex and will be committed to Manila, Cebu, Bohol and Bacolod destinations.

By the end of 2011, he said construction of the pre-departure area at the passenger terminal building will start.

"Based on the blue print, there would be elevated boarding bridges to berths 4 and 5 and along the quay of berths 1-3 for the convenience, safety and security of disembarking or embarking passengers just like any other ports in the country," Bacal said.

Aside from the P500 million Ro-Ro facilities, also considered is the re-development of the city's seaport that would be at par with international standards. (Nicole J. Managbanag)

Raft with the local celebrities
By Lynde Salgados

CAGAYAN de Oro River's famous wild rapids will be tested anew by some 20 local celebrities on February 26.

"They're going to feel the rush of the country's premier white water rafting destination," said Ardizon "Papa Ardie" Arsua, marketing and image consultant of the 1st Rafting Adventure Philippines and Eco Extreme Rafting Adventure.

"Raft with The Local Celebrities," Arsua said, is a cause-oriented activity that is a free white-water rafting adventure with famous and influential local personalities in the “City of Golden Friendship.”

Among those invited to experience the breathtaking stunt are Silka 2010 Kathy Almirante, Yes FM's Andy Coco, DJ Oye and Lolo Insyong, Benjie Manuel of the fashion sector, Mark "Pogi" Francisco of Gold Star Daily, Ian Nuer of Sining Kambayoka Ensemble, Ryan Casiño (chairman of the National Commission for Culture and Arts) and PJ dela Peña of the local ABS-CBN news.

Aside from the free ride of thrill and excitement, Almirante and company will also be treated to free meal and freebies, courtesy of 1st Rafting Adventure and Eco-Extreme Rafting Adventure companies.

"The rationale behind this event is to unify the people in Cagayan de Oro through the use of the local celebrities' network and influences in protecting and preserving the beauty and wonders of Cagayan de Oro River," Arsua told Sun.Star Cagayan de Oro.

The Oro River basks in the splendor of lust vegetation scenery. From downtown Divisoria, a simple jeepney ride can take one up Carmen Hill, a sprawling mini-mountain with impressive scenery and natural formations, such as the historic Macahambus Cave and Macahambus Adventure Park in the barangay of Lumbia. And en route to barangays Dansolihon and Mambuaya on boats for the best rafting experience, one can pause for a moment and enjoy the panoramic view while cruising the calm waters and embrace Mother Nature.

"In this recreational outdoor activity, our local celebrities can really explore and discover for themselves the thrill of nature at its wildest," Arsua added.

Oro river's tricky 5th rapid
By Lynde Salgados
SUN*STAR - Cagayan de Oro
Thursday, March 3, 2011


BENEATH the tame veneer of civilization, there is a wildness that lurks in all of us.

It is the spirit of adventure.

As our friendly guides implore, "step into the boats, pick up a paddle, and you become one with the wind and water.

Learning how to ride with the moving water is a journey both inward and outward, and it can easily be a lifelong pursuit.

It never really occurred to us how much a journey of this kind represented the physical unity of the native habitat now known as the booming, blooming and blossoming City of Golden Friendship. It's aboriginal and age-old history, its people, landscape, waterways and its spirit.

Only then we realized that rafting itself is much more than a physical pursuit.

"It's like enjoying the freedom of the press in which we carry a great responsibility of freely emancipating the truth," shared the lovely Primy Cane, whose fluent English was as clear as the drop of forest waters divinely slipping through the ragged cliff.

For Karlo, sweet-smiling Beryl, fellow guides and the rest whose eyes are beholden to the beauty of nature, water rafting is a way of life. In it we feel a renewed sense of freedom.

The very sight of them as we raft along the busy streams--tiny forest flowers blooming along the greening portage trails, a natural sculpture of giant rocks shaped by winds and waves, the singing birds and the green snakes curling up high on a hilly twig and the rush of water everywhere--stirs our souls.

All of them are welcome signs of new life.

Of course, before plunging in to the flat water of Mambuaya where at least 14 wild rapids await along slightly over 12-kilometer stretch, the "celebrity group" had to listen intently to the short briefing on how to paddle, maneuver, balancing act, moving forward, u-turns and sideslips as well as the mandatory tips on river rescues and safety.

"Ladies and gentlemen, we're left with no choice here. We have to paddle or die," warned Ardizon, in gesture replete with gayly laugh, but even then shook the novice part in us.

Mentioning alone Mambuaya river's lengthy 12-kilometer stretch of various obstacles and challenges is enough to send shiver down our spines--the complete beginners.

Right on then, things become wilder and scary in our thoughts.

For the less-expert swimmers, one could not avoid asking silly questions like: Is there a Temagami (deep water) out there for us to endure? And how certain is our survival in case of capsizing?

Others may even be tempted to ask: How sure we are there's no crocodile or Anacunda-type of snake in this place?

Fear-driven queries that only made ABS-CBN reporter Rod Bolivar to show a cold shoulder with arms firmly-crossed up his chest when motioned to try rafting with the group after conducting on-the-spot interview with the local luminaries.

There's always a quiver when you're just starting.

But isn't this part of the adventure--to conquer fears and bravely face unexpected challenges?

For as long that I have my lifejacket on I will be safe, I was sort of lifting my spirit.

Once in Palawan during the 2008 Palarong Pambansa, me and the basketball team of Sacred Heart of Jesus Montessori School (SHJMS) had a grand time sight-seeing on a myriad of outgoing family of dolphins in the deep-blue sea before traversing in the other side of the paradise island if only to experience the eerie wilderness of the world wonder Underground River.

Of course, white water rafting is a different challenge.

I always have a respect of the moving waters that has become the unique trademark of our very own Cagayan de Oro River.

And I would never underestimate its great potential danger.

A friend in the band of my younger brother back then was engulfed by raging waters somewhere in the outskirt of Initao, Misamis Oriental. It was a tragedy.

Even Michael Jordan had his own traumatic experience when his childhood sweetheart and a male friend had never both saw the light again after similar incident.

Jordan, in fact, in his own written book narrated his close encounter with death by near drowning when he's still a boy.

Was it a case of godly sky scraper losing power and all on the wet surface? Like Superman becoming powerless in the face of Kryptonite?

Our family too had a nightmare on this, though it was a long long story.

River classification is used to give a universal language to describe the difficulties we may face on a river. But it somewhat subjective guideline, as it is based on judging a river under certain conditions.

Flooding, erosion, changing water levels and geological disturbances can completely alter a classification.

As they say, nothing replaces first-hand experience, even on a familiar river.

The weather was perfect when we get down the waters the sun won't show to burn our skin.

Bordering between the mountain ranges of Cagayan de Oro and Baungon in Bukidnon, I could find the Mambuaya River as a difficult one it has the fast current, numerous obstacles and rapids with high, irregular waves that can swamp a rubberized boat and even a swiftly gliding canoe.

Precise maneuvering and expert boat control are required to negotiate the turbulent water as well as to avoid dangerous obstacles.

"Our fate depends in the expert hands of the river guide, am I right Karlo? You have all the control and the decision to knock the boat or play safe with us," the fast-learning Cane insists when, all of a sudden, another in-your-face sensation has caught us by surprise.

From a smooth ride, we've quickly metamorphosed into a screaming bunch of risk-taking kids in great thrill and excitement as we bumped into a cacophony of eddy tides that forced us to paddle strong--forward--in unified force.

Only then Karlo broke a story that on that very portion--distinguished as the fifth rapid--an experienced rafter from Germany fell off to his huge bewilderment that he immediately called the route as a "surprise obstacle".

"The dude practically melts in shame as his expertise was never a factor then in this area," Karlo recalled.

Indeed, the water spot was quite deceiving.

Just in striking distance, there's an unnoticeable boulder ahead and the sudden burst of strong eddies even listed the Presidentiable Sister Kris Aquino as its latest victim.

"Kris Aquino was the last to fall in this rapid that's why we call it now as the "Kris Drop" obstacle," Karlo explained. To which the angelic face Eien (Almirante) gamely quipped: "And sure Ate Kris must be shrieking by then with her usual "Oh Boy" (pertaining to her biz friend Boy Abunda) how could this happen to me," when the waterly surprise of her life was presented. (To be continued)

Another coffee shop has opened recently in Cagayan de Oro. Blend and Brew Café, located at the upper ground floor of the just completed Earlsbridge Building along Tomas Saco Street had their soft opening last February 28.
The building which is the first unique glass and steel architecturally designed structure in the city also has an internet cafe at the lower ground floor (basement) and office spaces and function rooms in the upper floors.





Aside from coffee, it also offers a variety of pastries.





With nearby Rodelsa Circle becoming an alternate venue for evening getaways for yuppies, this place’s future is bright.
