Bacolod Chicken Inasal

It was a rainy Sunday last week when we went to see the Orchid Show at the Quezon Memorial Circle. For lunch, we decided to eat at Bacolod Chicken Inasal right at the Circle's grounds.
Bacolod's Chicken Inasal
We liked the ambiance. It was bright and roomy with high ceiling and glass windows surrounding the entire restaurant. And again, set meals are offered which makes ordering for a group of people much much easier.
The set meal we chose was super sulit. We each had, of course, chicken inasal, and we got to choose the chicken part we preferred.

Bacolod's Chicken Inasal
We ordered two pechos and two legs.

Their chicken was meaty and cooked well. Tender and juicy.

The set meal came with a bowl of molo soup for four. Hot and tasty. And a sizzling plate of bangus sisig which was suprisingly good!

The set meal didn't come with a vegetable dish, though, so we opted to order their chopsuey, not the best looking nor tasting chopsuey around, but was good enough. We washed everything down with glasses of iced tea; yes, still part of the set meal.

Ending the meal, and included in the set was buco pandan for each of us. Again, not the best tasting buco pandan around, but the sweetness helped cap off the meal . I would think paying only a little over a thousand bucks for this entire set was so worth it.

Should you decide to dine there, don't forget to check out their corner of Bacolod's famous delicacies. You would surely grab a bag or two of this and that.

Mann Hann Revisited

There are restaurants you love going back to. And there are those you swear never to. Mann Hann is one restaurant we enjoy revisiting over and over. We almost have a readied set menu of our favorite dishes we have grown to love thru the years. And it never fails to fill our tummies with delight every time.

(Fish fillet with taus and Mixed Vegetables)

We sometimes vary our pancit order... alternating from cha bihon to chami to seafood chami to miki bihon.
We are glad that Mann Hann's food has remained great.... and prices have not gone up that much either. No wonder people still patiently line up at the door just to get a table.

Blogging
Our table always ends up looking like this. And us, with big smiles on our faces.

CD-R King's Mini USB Keyboard

Blogging
The backspace key was the first to go. It was not much of a hassle at first, since by hitting the arrow keys combined with the delete button, I was able to work around the problem. But soon enough, most of the keys on the upper right corner of the board stopped working altogether. I tried every DIY thing I could but nothing worked. I finally gave up and decided to get a mini usb keyboard from cd-r king.

BloggingBlogging
Don't let the small size fool you. The really tiny keyboard had everything a standard keyboard had! Typing could be a bit tricky, though, because of its size, but as long as it works and isn't adding bulk to my netbook when stuffed inside the laptop bag, I could live with that.

Blogging
It even came with its own retractable usb connector.

Blogging
I thought about buying a new keyboard for my netbook, but that would set me back P2000. I wasn't willing to shell out that amount on my seldom used back up laptop just yet. So, for P800, I opted to get this instead. Ergo, my netbook is up and running once more. Thanks to this mini usb keyboard, surfing is once more anytime, anywhere.

Nestea Fit with L-Carnitine

Whatever flavor or twist they come up with, only Nestea makes iced tea mixes the way they should be. Refreshing, natural tasting and delicious. I won't make the same mistake of trying other brands anymore.

Mupicin: Topical Antibiotic for Kids?

Is it BFAD approved?
Blogging

It is antibiotic.
BloggingBlogging
It is scented.
Blogging
And, it is a spray...

But nothing on the label provides vital information that should come with everything pharmaceutical. I was afraid to try this. Not until I see a BFAD approved anywhere on its label will I try it out.

Lays Stax Cheddar

BloggingBlogging
I needed my Pringles Cheezums fix the other day but SM Bicutan didnt have 'em on their shelves so I decided to give Lays Stax a try.

BloggingBlogging
I had a much easier time opening its seal than Pringles'.

Actually, they do taste the same. Sarap. But I find Pringles crisps much thinner and crispier. Nevertheless, we weren't able to stop when we popped! :)

McDonalds Apple Pie

Blogging:  McDonalds Apple Pie
I can't remember the last time I had this.

Blogging:  McDonalds Apple Pie
Packaging design has changed but it still has that warning that says the filling is hot.

Blogging:  McDonalds Apple Pie
I am not sure if it has shrunk in size, but it seems to have. And the filling, too. I know it must have been years since I last had this, but I think the taste has stayed pretty much the same as it used to. Same old sweet and tangy apple bits in their signature applesauce with that hint of cinnamon.

Magnolia Mango Iced Tea

Blogging
I love Magnolia. From its butter, to its milk, to its ice cream to name a few, only Magnolia works for me. But the Magnolia Mango Iced Tea is most definitely not! Me didn't like it a bit. When it comes to iced teas, I would have to give it to Nestle's Nestea for their perfect blend of refreshing lemon and tea drink. Now that me likey! :)
