Since our family moved back here in my hometown last summer, I could not help but be amazed of the progress it incurred for the past 6 to 7 years that I was gone. Everywhere I look, I can see many steel building rising up – malls, hotels and other businesses. And by the time I left Cagayan de Oro City, there were only two bridges. Now there are five!
My hometown, Cagayan de Oro City, is booming in progress. When I left, I heard it is already earning billions of pesos in taxes and with all the business establishments I see now, I couldn’t question why I am seeing a lot of new bridges, skyways (though not that tall) and other improvements within the city (not to mention, the new international airport they are building and the City Hall is still under renovation)!
So, just like what I said in my blog post title, my hometown should be officially called Metro Cagayan de Oro!
