Toryano's Chicken Haus

Toryano's Chicken Haus
This post will just be quick but I'll be reviewing the Toryano's Chicken Haus that is located at The Peak, Gaisano. There are lots of Toryano's Chicken haus branch in the city but we are Gaisano at that moment so we tried it.

We ate there last June 7, 2014, after the Etsy Craft Party that was hosted at the Yellow Hauz, along with my friends. Well, it is basically a restaurant whose specialty is focused mainly on grilled menu such as pork and chicken. But other than that, they also offer other menu such as pancit and etc.

I'm ready to eat!

Well, this restaurant offer different kinds of combo meals. Every combo meal is equivalent to an unli rice (horaay!). Filipinos, like me, surely like unlirice menu. For this post, I'll be reviewing their cheapest combo meal and the price plays somewhere in Php60 - Php70. Their combo 1 meal is equivalent to two (2) pork barbecues, an atsal and an unlimited rice.

The pork barbeque tastes is good and tender. It is really tasty and worth your money. Well just to say, I would prefer eating here and spending extra 10-15 pesos rather than eating in fast food chains. In addition to that, this barbecue is just like the other barbeques that are being served in the other restaurants. Not really something special but surely something that is worth your budget.

Well, you might want to try their other combo since they also offer native chicken and pork chop meal.

I just realized something, maybe they can make their services faster. My friends and I waiter for several minutes and we have to follow up our orders. I'm also quite surprised because it's not a busy hour and there were only few customers.

I've also searched the net and found same reviews. Well, there is still a big room for improvement.

Ice Giants at Quimpo Boulevard, Davao
Last September, 2013, my college friends and I went to the Ice Giants located somewhere in Quimpo Boulevard and just a few kilometers away from SM, Ecoland. This post does not have lots of pictures because I'm not a stable blogger those days and I don't capture pictures that much. These photos are just saved pictures from my device

If you feel stressed due to warm weather, then this post will fill up your needs! Welcome to Ice Giants. Ice Giants offers snacks and desserts.

This mouth-watering and chocolate filled bowl will sweep away your stress from school and work! Chocolate ice cream + marshmallows + chocolate stick-o + Chocolate candies = Chocolate Titans! I recommend this menu to everyone especially to those who has a sweet tooth! I forgot how much this costs but I think it ranges from Php300 - Php400. This is good for 5-6 persons.

The chocolate pizza made  with marsmallows, cream and some Kitkat chocolate wafers. I also love this, but I the pizza is too small for its price. Well, I'm not satisfied with this one but it's okay. The price ranges from Php300 to Php400.

The ambiance inside
The ceiling has some cuvy shape which is very attractive and also, some colorful circles.

Overcoming Procrastination.

Overcoming Procrastination.
Hi readers! How are you? For today's topic, I am going to discuss something that everyone can relate. This is something we have in common, well if not, at least most of us. It's PROCRASTINATION. You guilty? Well, I am too. First, let's define procrastionation. According to the merriam-webster.com, it is an act to to delay doing something until a later time because you do not want to do it, because you are lazy. Seems right isn't? Life is simple but we make it complicated. Every time we procrastinate things that must be done today, and then do it again tomorrow, the tendency is that it will load on the weekend. Then you'll feel overloaded and desperate! Instead of just relaxing, having a cup of tea and listening to some soothing music during the weekend, you are cramming for things that will be submitted next week. Then you would blame yourself every weekend why you didn't do it during the weekdays. That becomes a cycle. It's like an cycle of infinity, it never ends. That cramming part is already a stress. To make this short, you are making your life miserable and stressful! You know that this stresses you out but you never act to stop it.

I am a procrastinator myself and as much as possible, I would like to control this urge to procrastinate. I always tell myself, "Oh, I'm tired, maybe I can do that after breakfast". Then the moment after breakfast, lots of distractions arises. DISTRACTIONS. How could you focus yourself if you are surrounded with distractions? Well, the answer is DISCIPLINE. It's hard to attain and it requires a daily practice. Start disciplining your thoughts. Your mind is like the mitochondria of a cell. It is the cell's power producer. Think something productive and think of doing it. Don't listen to the liar voice in your head which says, "Oh, I'm tired, I want to procrastinate". With the correct thoughts, you can give power to your body to accomplish the tasks.


To overcome procrastination, learn to set goals. Example, " I must finish this before the day ends...etc". Next is to set a reward system everytime you accomplish a task. Treat yourself for lunch once you have finished the task or give yourself a gift. The next step is one of the hardest step which is stop making excuses and complaning. Forget about the excuses, just do it! As I said, control yourself. Discipline. Lastly, Just say, I'll do it", and do it!
