Leigh & Lyle Boutique in Talakag

I found Leigh & Lyle Boutique by chance while taking a walk around Barangay 2 in Talakag.  I noticed this tarpaulin sign at the gate of Seno’s Residence along Amoran Street and decided to check it out.  It’s owned/managed by Megan (the daughter of Catalina Bacungan and Leo Seno).  Business hours are from Monday to Sunday between 9:00am – 6:00pm.
If like me you love anything quirky and vintage, you will love Leigh & Lyle Boutique.  I’m really excited about it.  There’s something for everyone.  Step inside and here’s what’s on offer:
  • For the fashionistas, there’s both new and vintage clothes with shoes and bags to match, plus trinkets and accessories.
  • For the home, there’s items like towels, bedsheets, ceramic wares, and home decor.
  • For the bookworms, there’s a variety of books, paperbacks and fashion magazines.
  • For the kids, there’s children’s clothes and soft toys.
And for the gardeners, there’s an amazing collection of mini cacti, succulent and air plants to choose from.
The shop’s all white interior gives you a luxurious feel and the design is cleverly planned.  I love how everything is so organised yet displayed with flair.

Overall, the concept is brilliant.  Whether you’re shopping for yourself for that party outfit, hunting for that perfect gift for someone or just want to make shopping simpler, there’s no need for rush down to Cagayan de Oro anymore when we now have this classy option right here in Talakag.

BOTOY’S LECHON Talakag Branch

You don't have to go down Cagayan de Oro anymore for a "lechon fix", as Botoy’s Lechon Manok, Pork BBQ, Liempo and their latest Grilled Boneless Bangus are now available here in Talakag.  It's branch opened today at 8:00 am on the 8th day of the 8th month, which is believed to bring luck to any business.  It attracted the public’s attention early as promos for the day included: a Buy One Get One Free offer for the first 50 customers while the rest got either 2 sticks of pork BBQ or a 1.5 litre softdrink with every order made.
Botoy’s lechon promises quality meat, marinaded in special herbs/spices and cooked to perfection.  I’ve tried the pork BBQ which has passed my taste standard.  I also recommend the Grilled Bangus as a healthier option and because it’s boneless, it’s good value for money.  Check out Botoy’s Lechon soon to see what I’m talking about.
It’s located in Barangay 3 and owned/managed by “Pepoy” dela Pena and his wife.
