Took the Canlubang exit on the way back to Nuvali from Calamba a while back, and was happy to drive around to check out the area for the first time.
Chanced upon a new retail center, iMall:
A cousin who lives in the nearby Ceris 1 Village said the iMall had just opened at that time (June 2012). Around the corner was also a Robinson’s Supermarket, and next to it a Shell gas station, similar to the Nuvali tandem.
Across was Don Bosco College, which had a new course offering that was a welcome surprise: Robotics!
Also spotted another Salesian school next to it, Mary Help of Christians:
(I’ve now added them to the list of schools in and around Nuvali I started compiling last year).
From I-mall we took the road to Silangan exit, passing through the Silangan Industrial Park, turned towards Nuvali (we paid a “toll fee” of P15.00), and voila! We ended up in the rotonda right before Nuvali Central.
Interesting to note that in Nuvali South, at the end of East Diversity Avenue (the road fronting Venare, the Wakepark and Avida Village), there is a gate that is still closed for the time being, but I think it’s safe to assume that it will lead to this general area in Canlubang. What a great shortcut to Calamba from Nuvali that would be!
