It's been a while since the last time I wrote an entry. Actually, it's been a while since I visited this blog. I was a bit surprised that still, quite a number of people have been visiting. :)
It made me think if I should "resurrect" this blog. :D I've been really busy these past months, made a career move that has kept me occupied physically, emotionally and mentally hehe. I'll probably try to post every week, that is, if I'm not so busy and tired with work.
The months that I've been away, I've seen a lot of new faces, met new friends, tried out different kinds of food but I didn't take the time to take pictures. I'll probably try to do that again, taking pics. I can't wait to go back to Pinas, looking forward to a long holiday, away from stress. :D

Before leaving Manila, I thought I had to try out Wee Nam Kee. It was rapidly gaining popularity so I knew I had to try it. It was, I believe a weekday, at around 5PM in Ayala Triangle. Since it was still early, we were able to secure seats. As I've heard, it gets too crowded in the evenings and you have to brave long queues to get yourself a seat. It was a good thing that we didn't have to waste much time.
Inside the restaurant, they made it look like you're in the middle of a street. For the viands, we ordered a medium sized steamed chicken which was good for 2 and cereal prawns. Steamed chicken tasted a bit bland for me, should have tried the roasted chicken instead. Cereal prawns tasted great, loved the cereal flakes. It could have been better only if they had taken out the shrimp shells already.
Steamed ChickenP248 (if I remember it correctly :P)
Cereal PrawnsP375 / 4pcs
There was nothing really special about this reastaurant. I even find it a bit expensive. I've tried out a few versions of Hainanese Chicken Rice, steamed or roasted, and I can say nothing beats the one served in Raffles Hospital. :-P

In Ayala Triangle, after eating Bonchon Chicken, it's recommended to try out Caramia. In almost any branch, it's usually located inside an Amici restaurant. Caramia offers Gelato or Italian ice cream while Amici offers pizza , pasta, etc. Prices are pegged at around P70 per scoop. Not bad. :)
