    I guess many people have a clear opinion about the neverending story, some are loud, some see it as a joke, some are against everything...

    What are the DI members thinking about it in general.

    ooops, I made the Poll and did not vote... hehe :o

    but no secret, I voted with "Yes" for mostly selfish reasons,

    I wanna buy deep frozen products, who are not defrosted daily (or in the Duma-Case I need to say nightly)
    I love to watch new movies in a nice movie theater
    I love to see sales-ladies in nice Uniforms
    I love to have a computer-shop which is not charging 30 - 50 % more than those in big cities.
    same for any other electric and electronic equipment.
    ....and I could continue on and on....

    I don't think that any Sari-Sari Shop will close because of Robinson's, Nobody will go to a mall to buy a "one-stick-of-Fortune".. you simply can't compare the small shops in the western world with the Sari-Sari shops here...
    The traffic can't be more chaotic that it is anyway, in fact there might be even less traffic downtown.

    cheers

    I'm sure noone is under any confusion as to what i voted for
    i voted NO WAY
    Rhoods I do not think Lee plaza turn their freezers off at night?
    i may be wrong but they have own generator and when their is power cut they are still on.
    1)
    I think traffic will get worse as more people may come. Also this is the main road to Dauin etc
    As I go to the beach more often than I go shopping then this is more of a concern.
    E2)
    ven if it is built I dou bt there will be much different stuff to lee plaza.
    just look at robinsons in manilla
    junk and more junk.
    3)
    The architecture is out of keeping with the rest of the place
    4) It may start a domino affect and before you know it Dumaguete will not be unique and will like any other town with horrible modern architecture, high rises
    and commercilaisation with SAtarbucks, TGI FRIDAYs and all the other crap
    we have to put up with
    5) increase in pollution

    Yabs, I know that Lee does it. Just go there in the morning and touch anything of the frozen goods or open a Ice-cream-box...

    Where should more traffic come from ??? everybody from the surrounding areas goes at the moment to LEE anyway for shopping. All of them have to drive a whole Loop through Dumaguete due to the one way streets.
    Whith the location of Robinsons the people from the south don't have to do that anymore, so there will be less traffic downtown.

    However Robisons will look like finally, it will look better than this lousy fence
    we look at since years...

    They will have the same as LEE and much more... and cheaper.

    your sweetheart will have a bigger choice of fastfood, coth, food... it makes her feel better, she is happier, that reflects on the relationship in a positiv way, you will be happier.... so a win/win situation.

    Negativ aspect... DI will be a bit less interesting with a happy yabs and a finished Robinsons...

    really ?
    had no idea about that (freezers off at night)
    stands toi reason though
    Lee= chinese
    chinese= tight b*stard when it comes to money.
    but isn't Robinson also Chinese?
    d*mn maybe i won't be buying those cevalat from there after all.:smile:
    what about food from market though? is thsat fresh and clean?
    I have herad there will be starbucks etc though at robinson
    this can only be bad news
    more American commercial crap
    hopefully with the american crdit crunch though we will see less and less of their gaudy neon and crap food polluting the planet


    Don't worry you will never find me posting here happy.
    I always post from work on my floating jail
    hence i will never be happy:smile:
    My "War on American junk culture" will never end anyway

    For me the new mall is OK. Cause it brings competition to the two Lee Plazas today.Both in prices and Brands.
