Finding my Inner Singaporean at Nasi Lemak Food Republic

Having been to Singapore a number of times, I have come to develop a fondness for chicken rice.  As avid viewers of No Reservations with Anthony Bourdain are aware of, this simple no-frills chicken dish is technically considered one of the well-known dishes of Singapore, a definite must-try when visiting the Lion City.

Feeling a little lonely for hubby, it was with great joy that mom and I came across Nasi Lemak Food Republic in Robinson's Galleria, serving authentic Singaporean cuisine.

Try the Hainanese Chicken Rice set (Php200) for a really tasty meal.

The meal comes with the usual complimentary sauces and dips plus rice as you can see in their counterparts in Singapore.

The Malaysian Satay (Php200) composed of 6 skewsers of a combination of pork and chicken is also a must-try.

We had to order a cup of jasmine rice (Php35) since this didn't come included with the Malaysian Satay meal.

My only complaint would be the aloof servers who seem like they have better things to do with their time than serve you.  Considering we were the first customers of the day, with nary another soul in sight, we found this a little disturbing to say the least.

The food, however, is great!  And for that alone, makes this dining experience worthwhile.

  1. I love chicken rice ever since i first tasted it during my 1 1/2 month stay in Singapore a long, long time ago.

    The sauces, chili and ginger, especially, really complete the food experience.

    I've been planning to try the Singapore Chicken Rice in Cubao but still haven't had the time. Have you tried that one?

  2. @Batangala: Haven't tried that one yet. We're a little too far from Cubao. =)

PH | Bang's Tony & Jackey Beauty Salon's Aqua Volume Rebond

I've always had ruly, unmanageable hair for as long as I can remember, hence the introduction of rebonding services here in PH is a blessing.  I've been having my hair rebonded or relaxed once a year since 2002.  It's an expense that I make sure is always included in the yearly luxury budget.

Whereas before I used to have my hair rebonded at a David's Salon (since they always deliver consistently great results), I had to stop and look to other establishments when they eventually jacked up their prices (what used to cost me Php3,000 is now priced at Php5,000 to Php6,000, depending on the branch!).  Too much for my already hurting wallet.  Hence, the need to try other salons.  I've been happy with the results, so far.

The one thing though. that always gets me though is how lifeless and limp my hair tends to look when newly treated.  It's always the case wherever I have my tresses done.  It will look it's best at least a month or 2 after treatment.  It was onl…

Style for Less: Ballerina Flats (Tory Burch vs Kamiseta)

Have you ever noticed how fashionable high-end items just keep on being reinvented by some other brand.  Well after having my eyes checked for fear of seeing doubles (normal daw sabi ni Doc), I decided to scour through the malls in search of fashion doppelgangers.

THE SPLURGE: Tory Burch's Reva ballerina flats (USD195 or around Php9,000)

When well-known American fashion designer Tory Burch released her line of Reva ballerina flats, it was an instant hit.  Known for its incredibly comfortable material and structure with a nicely padded sole and an elasticized heel, these babies made a killing and everyone wanted one. 

How to Apply for a Philippine Postal ID Card

I've said it once and I'll say it again, woe to the newly married woman who has, for years, have gotten so used to her surname only to find that a single (wedding) day, will change this familiarity forever.

I have to admit, it was not easy for me to adapt to a new surname, due mainly for professional reasons.  Throughout my profession career, I have been known by my maiden name and to have to inform all my contacts of the change was, well, too tiresome.  And so I decided to go the hypenated route and I eventually ended up with 2 surnames.  Such was the compromise!  =)
