Barcelos™ Flame Grilled Chicken (A Singapore Food Post)

I've been in and out of Singapore since 2008 since the ex-fiancee, now the Husband, is based here for work.  And one of the very first eateries he brought me to was Barcelos™ Flame Grilled Chicken.

Barcelos™ Flame Grilled Chicken is a simple self-serve eatery that specializes in grilled fowl.

Barcelos™' grilled chicken isn't sweet; so unlike similar dishes that we have in PH.  But it does use a lot of flavorful herbs and spices plus a special sauce -- from tangy lemon to supa peri (really hot) which is basted while grilling and/or used as a condiment -- that gives that added spiciness and kick.

4 special sauces (tangy lemon, mild peri, very peri, and supa peri)

Their ¼ chicken meal (includes 2 sides, or a side and choice of soft drink) sells for S$14.50 (Php479*)

I love the food here since the flavors aren't overpowering and the chicken's really tasty.  Sides are delicious too.  However, I don't like the wait staff who just seem to be completely bored teenagers with nothing better to do (wouldn't it kill you to smile a bit?  Or be a little more customer-oriented?)  

Nevertheless, Barcelos™ Flame Grilled Chicken continues to remain one of our favorite food stops.

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.

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!  =)
