Area Leveling Up

Where I live is usually quiet and left out from development due to its nature of being just a path from Manila to the North. This meant that only certain businesses can thrive and prosper.

Recently though, we've been getting upgrades as bigger establishments are targeting us as a means of growth. At the start of 2013, Puregold Kanlaon replaced the old dry market/flower stalls. I generally buy my groceries here, not only because of how near it is, but prices are mostly lower here than SM/Rob/Mercury. Jollibee also landed there, whereas no big fast food place tried/survived.

Just a month ago (Sept 2013), Z-Square Banawe opened and should further give the area a boost. It's around a 12 minute walk and will feature a Cdr-king. Already open is Robinsons Supermarket, Handyman and a Cherry Mobile Kiosk. Majority of the mall is open air and will probably depend on the Green Wall they have. I walked up to it just to confirm if they're real plants. They were, and looked a bit like lemon balm.

Yeah, as expected, the Burst 2.0 camera sucks a bit.
