Tokyo Tokyo Comes to Cagayan de Oro

          Kagay-anons, mark the date November 29, 2012! This is when Tokyo Tokyo, the No.1 Japanese fast food chain in the Philippines, will open its 1st branch in the City of Golden Friendship, most particularly in the 2nd floor of Limketkai Mall.

          Already in the country for twenty-seven years, with its initial branch at the Quad Park in Makati City, Tokyo Tokyo has evolved to be known for its affordable and quality Japanese food. Its signature dishes such as Pork Tonkatsu, Prawn Tempura, Beef Misono, as well as the all-time favorites, Red Iced Tea and Rice-All-You-Can-Eat, will surely catch the attention of Kagay-anons.

          Moreover, there are additionals to its menu, the Sumo Meal and the Bento Meal! The Sumo Meal, named after Japan’s iconic sumo wrestler, is a “big meal which has many of Tokyo Tokyo’s best sellers: Pork Tonkatsu, Prawn Tempura, Red Iced Tea and Rice-All-You-Can-Eat, perfect for two.” Meanwhile, the Bento Meal is a complete meal in a box, with a fully customizable content. Any customer can select “among nine Tokyo Tokyo Bestseller Meals combined with Miso Soup, vegetables and dessert in one meal with Red Iced Tea and Rice-All-You-Can-Eat.”

           Tokyo Tokyo’s Marketing Manager Joan Optina says, “We are excited to bring our signature Japanese dishes to Cagayan De Oro and we look forward to serving the region with dishes that are enjoyed by millions of Filipinos. The opening of the CDO branch is something we’re all very excited about because it will be the first Tokyo Tokyo in the Northern Mindanao Region.”

A Big Decision: What to Take Up As A College Major

          Oftentimes, it is not easy deciding what to take up as a College Major. However, this decision-making situation can be less stressful if you practice time management and gather all the necessary facts before planning. Take a deep breath and be still. Analyze things well. Assess your likes or interests. While growing up, what have always or often been your most prominent skills, as well as your favorite pastime or hobby? From these aspects, you can then decide what major to take up in college.

          If you have been fond of animals, and have been constantly taking care of your pet dog or cat, you can consider becoming a veterinarian, thus taking up Veterinary Medicine. Meanwhile, if you have been the class and family clown, the type of person who can easily make people laugh, you can be an entertainer, hence considering Theater Arts and the like. Furthermore, if you have been frequently involved in helping out others in their respective plights, you may think of being a lawyer someday, therefore considering Law.

          Actually, once you have analyzed things thoroughly, the list of possible majors can go on and on. In this regard, it is then a lot easier to choose which major to take up. In case you still have difficulty deciding despite the aforementioned tips, you can always seek the help or opinion of your family and friends. The decision-making process may take some time, but once you know where to start, deciding what to take up as a College Major is not that complicated after all. -- ARV
