Olympic silver medalist Carlo Paalam receives house and lot unit from Cebu Landmasters

September 2, 2021

Leading developer in Vismin Cebu Landmasters, Inc. (CLI) welcomes Olympic Silver medalist Carlo Paalam to his new home during the turnover ceremony of the CLI-gifted P3.6 million Velmiro Uptown CDO house and lot unit yesterday, September 1 at Cagayan de Oro City.

In an intimate ceremony, CLI Chief Operating Officer Franco Soberano personally turned over to Paalam and his family the house and lot unit in Velmiro Uptown CDO. This was followed by a house blessing officiated by Xavier University Ateneo de Cagayan President Fr. Mars Tan, S.J.

Also present during the turnover were CLI Chief Finance Officer Beauregard Grant Cheng, AVP for Strategic Landbanking, Permits & Records Management Mark Chang, Cayagan de Oro Vice Mayor Hon. Rainer Joaquin “Kikang” Uy, Councilor Jay Roa Pascual, CDO Sports Official Stephen “Pong” Dacoco.

Soberano did a tour with Paalam in his new 2-floor and 3-bedroom Velmiro Uptown CDO home, a sold out subdivision and CLI’s third residential project in CDO. It surrounds a beautiful community located at a prime spot in Upper Canitoan in Cagayan de Oro City that offers impressive views, efficiently designed homes with generous space and premier amenities for a serene family life.

“You’ve given inspiration to millions of young children. This is the first ever house that we’ve gifted – and we’ve given it to someone who deserves it. We see the sacrifices that you and your family have made and that’s why you deserve it,” highlighted Soberano during the turnover ceremony.

Paalam merits his hard work from a very young age when he worked as a scavenger to help feed his family. He lived in a small and simple house in Barangay Kauswagan, where he shares with his family of ten.

At age 12, just as his interest in boxing grew, he became part of CDO’s grassroots boxing program under the support and leadership of Mayor Oca Moreno. His exemplary talent and determination bears fruit in a historic Olympic silver medal win that inspired millions of Filipinos worldwide.

“As a child, I could only dream of buying toys, bikes, and eating in decent restaurants but my parents could not give that before. Now, I have an opportunity to give back to my family with this house, so thank you Cebu Landmasters,” said Paalam in Visayan.

CLI joins the rest of the country in the celebration of Paalam’s extraordinary achievement at the Tokyo Olympics bringing honor to every Filipino especially the Mindanaoans.
