PICHOA-2 Names Phase 2 Streets


Phase 2 General Assembly approved during their annual meeting last December 2012 the name category for the number of streets crisscrossing Phase 2 of Pag-ibig Citihomes Subdivision in the Malanang, Opol, Misamis Oriental. The streets will be named after flowers, the body approved.

In late January of this year, an on-line survey was conducted to re-affirm the decision of the General Assembly as to the name category of the streets. After more than a month that the survey ran, it was not able to muster a majority number of votes to invalidate the previously approved street name category.

Though, the category of Gods & Goddesses, which was suggested by Ms. Cherry Seniel, was leading the on-line survey, the Board on their 2nd Regular Meeting on March 11, 2012 decided to adopt the General Assembly’s last year decision on the premise that the majority of the members were not able to participate in the on-line poll.

The association is strictly observing the decision of the majority of its members. If majority of the members would retract their previous decision, the Board will religiously follow.

Flower Name and their Symbolism

Since the developer is already asking for the street names for quite some time now, the Board decided to adopt the following name of flowers for Phase 2 streets. This will be submitted to them before the end of March 2012.

Below is the list of the flower names and their corresponding meaning or symbolism.

Flower Name

Meaning

Azalea

“Symbol of Womanhood”

Bluebell

“ Symbol of Gratitude”

Cattleya

“ Symbol of Mature Charm”

Daffodil

“Symbol of Respect”

Eucalyptus

“ Symbol of Protection”

Gardenia

“Symbol of Hospitality”

Hyacinth

“Symbol of Sincerity”

Iris

“Symbol of Wisdom”

Jasmine

“Symbol of Attachment”

Lavender

“Symbol of Devotion”

Marigold

“Symbol of Creativity”

Peppermint

“Symbol of Cordiality”

Rosemary

“Symbol of Fidelity”

Sunflower

“Symbol of Adoration”

Street Name Placement

The Board decided that the streets will be named on an alphabetical order with only one flower name per letter. You will notice also that some of the letters in the alphabet were not assigned with corresponding flower name.

The purpose of such arrangement is to avoid confusion in locating the streets in Phase 2. And to provide facile instruction for people or service providers that are not familiar with the Block and Lot numbers.

Say for instance, you are looking for Cattleya Street and you are in the Lavender Street, you will have to simply go to the north direction, instead of going southward to Phase 3.

This is not the case of Phase 1 for, if you have observed, there are two or three street names that start with similar letter. These street names were not also arranged in an alphabetical order.

Street Guide

The first road in the north part of Phase 2 is named Azalea Street, while the road on the southern part of Phase 2 is named Marigold Street.

The vertical road that separates Phase 2 from Phase 1 is named Peppermint Street while the outer road that runs beside Bunkalalan River is named Sunflower Street. The vertical road on the center of Phase 2 is named Rosemary Street.

The odd road in front of Block 3 is named Bluebell Street. There is no other street name in Phase 2 that starts with letter “B”.

Please note that the main road separating Phases 2 and 3 was not named. The Board agreed to have Phase 3 HOA named it or simply adapt Phase 1’s street name since this road runs through them.

The Road To Citihomes Hones Personal Virtues


Pag-ibig Citihomes homeowners are indeed blessed if you take the access road condition to the subdivision for practicing the virtues of patience, endurance, and perseverance.

You got to have a higher degree of patience to navigate this path twice a day for five to six days a week especially during rainy days. Citihomes’ residents are mostly students and are employed in Cagayan de Oro City. Think of newly shined shoes, freshly pressed uniforms getting wet and splattered with mud. Picture your shoes getting soaked in rainwater splashed with dirt because the Motorelas operating there don’t have a properly installed rain protectors.

Think of uniforms, shoes, etc catching tons of dust during sunny days. Imagine your heavy colored shirts, pants, etc. and even your long shiny black hair looking brown.

You got to have a mighty endurance to undergo the daily ordeal on this type of road. You return home daily exhausted from work or studies and get more exhausted upon reaching your house, 3.5 kilometers from the highway, courtesy of the bad road.

You got to have a strong perseverance to still reside in the subdivision knowing and experiencing this daily torment. You have to have tons of it for we can only have a totally pave access road a decade from now. But that is still debatable.

Opol Mayor Dexter Yasay had made a pronouncement during the induction ceremony of the 2012 officers and directors of the various homeowners’ associations that his administration is still looking and sourcing out funds for the concreting of municipal and barangay roads. He said that Citihomes residents have to wait since the older subdivision, Youngsville Subdivision’s, access road is not yet concreted.

You have to persevere for another uncertain future before we can enjoy a concrete access road to Citihomes. Let us only start to hope once construction of access road to Youngsville Subdivision has commenced.

Below is mojospark1 uploaded video in youtube featuring the access road to Pag-ibig Citihomes. See to appreciate it.
