Delightfully Tuy’z

Another great place to dine in and hang out here in Victorias is the place called Tuy’z.

This one is easy to find, it is right in front of the public plaza and also along the highway. What makes this special is they serve good food that makes your every penny worth.  The place is one of the decent restaurants around here, service is quite efficient especially  that you can call them in  advance to have your order made and have it picked up.

This restaurant has been serving the people of Victorias for quite sometime.  I have seen them grow. Before, they were serving just pizza, some coolers and a few meals, now their menu board has a wide range of dishes.  You can choose from coolers, shakes, pizzas, short

orders, value meals and more comforting foods (see the additional new menu board below)


Why it is on my list…because this is the only restaurant in the city that serve Shawarma

Rice (Php 50.00/with egg Php 60.00) the way I like it…it has more meat, more veggies, and topped with rich garlic and hot sauce.  You can even request more sauce  if you want to and

that’s heaven for me.


Recently, I tried their Buffalo Wings (Php 140.00), the succulent wings  smothered in a spicy sweet sauce is definitely lip-smacking good. It was too late then to take a photo when what’s left on my plate were all bones (sorry guys no picture of those wings, can’t blame someone like me crazy for chicken wings *wink). But I got a photo of Crunchy Squid Rings (P120.00) and Sizzling Bangus (P110.00), both are blissfully satisfying.13689656_1731747473754701_759255083_n13689703_1731747467088035_181647283_n

Aside from that,  chocolate and java shake (Php 30.00) are the best. The pleasantly strong bitter sweet chocolatey flavor that you get in every sip of that shake makes you decide to have another a second and perhaps a third one  or more Smile .

These days, aside from regular shakes they too serve Frappes (P50.00) in flavors (I remember) of Strawberry, Vanilla, Chocolate, and Green Tea (I believe they’re the first in Victorias to serve green tea flavored frappe).

So why don’t you visit Tuy’z and try it, believe me it’s two thumbs up!



Top Five Reasons Why I Go For Wantan

Mayor Francis Frederick PalancaI live almost all my life in Victorias City. I have lived through its struggles to be a city and how it became one of the fast progressing city in Northern Negros. There were times of adversity and a time of triumph.

Come this May 9, I am casting my vote to the rightful father of the City — Mayor Wantan Palanca.

There are few complaints made discreetly (though the opponent party does it indiscreetly) by people I know and people I don’t know. They are murmuring about things they are dissatisfied about how Mayor Wantan runs Victorias. However, I guess people will always express their unhappiness about the government and how it is run. Why don’t people look at themselves first and ask if they are doing something to make the government better.

I don’t need to think deeper why I go for Mayor Wantan. From the very start, he became the head of the city, I was for Mayor Wantan, I am and I will always be. I have faith and confidence that he can do better for Victorias.

To paint a clearer picture of why he is my choice, I listed my top 5 reasons below:

5. Scholarships. Education is fundamental to each individual. But what if your parents cannot afford to send you to school? You have the brains but you don’t have the moolah. Well, all you have to do is apply for a scholarship offered by the city government. Every year, almost 500 young people are given educational assistance. This year, there are more young people given the same opportunity — the chance to have a better future ahead of them.

4. Health Services. Mayor Wantan always puts the welfare of his constituents first. It is his priority that every Victoriahanon will be taken care of. The medical mission conducted under his Wellness Program for Progress that almost served 50,000 beneficiaries since it was introduced in 2004 when he was still Vice Mayor. Provided free medicines for indigents through his Botika ni Wantan. Ambulance and medical services made available even on weekends. And how can I forget, Victorias Rescue Team on call 24/7 providing fast response to accidents and emergencies. whew, that’s a lot.

3. Burial Assistance. Correct me if I’m wrong, but in Negros Occidental, only Victorias City is giving burial assistance to its people. Php 10,000 for non-SSS member and Php 5,000 for SSS member. This is is a big help in time of grief.

2. Alliance Building. No man is an island so Victorias is building an alliance to other countries such as the sisterhood agreement with Nanjo City, Okinawa Prefecture, Japan. Partnership with IKAW-AKO Japan-Negros for environmental protection. Tripartite agreement with Ajuy and Banate for 3 RORO ports. And recently, the Past It Forward project in Victorias in cooperation with Israel NGOs which I heard will be investing a favorable amount of planning and implementation of the project which will bring the job to the people of Victorias. Now, that sounds awesome.

1. New Investments. 7/11, City Mall, Organic Market, Racs and other new restaurants mushrooming in the city, who doesn’t want that, right! When there are a lot of investments coming in, it only means they have confidence that economy in the city is growing faster. Thanks to Mayor Wantan, he welcomes and encourages investors to put up business here. More investors, more work for the locals. Happy?!

In a few weeks, it will be the big day. I am keeping my fingers crossed that the result will favor the candidate I’m rooting for.



Death of Mermo

The last memory of mermo

 It was early morning of saturday when we noticed that Mermo doesn’t seem in his normal ways. I was nervous to see he was spitting blood and his poo has blood.

I brought him to the vet and was prescribed witj amoxicilin, paracetamol and dextrose powder. I tried to save him but i think he is not for me.

7pm Mermo expired. It was a heavy feeling but i have to let go.

Mermo’s remains now lies in front of our house and i plan to plant flowers 💐 in his memory.

Thank you for the memory Mermo

Ang Lechon

Ang lechon…bow
masarap ang lechon
lalo na pag ito’y crispylicious 🙂
puno man ito ng cholesterol
at malapit sa stroke
hindi iniinda dahil ang ligayang dala
daig pa ang nasa langit ka na
O lechon bakit kay sarap mo
naglalaway pag ika’y nasilayan ko
sa hapag kainan ganang-gana ako
sa paglamon sa isang katutak na balat mo
sa lechon ako ba’y adik?
sa isang sulyap ko lamang
sa balat mong mapupula
labi ko’y takam takam
at gusto ka nang sunggaban
O lechon…o lechon
ika’y isang tukso
kaya ako’y layuan mo
at baka sa ataul ang bagsak ko…
Ang lechon bow.

Laing Linguine


This is a very easy pasta I made, want to know the secret? Open-mouthed smile

1st – bought Laing from the carinderia

2nd – cooked the pasta

3rd – mix the laing and pasta

Viola! Lets eat hehehehe

If you want the difficult way, you can make the laing from scratch Smile  . I don’t  cooked Laing as it tend to be itchy when swallowed I havent perfected it yet so the only option is to buy from the carienderia.

Sardines Pasta

I’m starting to change my eating habits so i’m encouraging myself to take pasta instead of rice hope this works
This one is very easy. I just sauteed the onions and garlic then i added the canned spicy sardines cooked a bit and add the pasta. That’s it easy 🙂
