Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen (A Singapore Food Post)

I'm not much of a fan of KFC here in Singapore (reasons of which I have stated in my previous post here); but I do so love my commercially-produced fried chicken.  So instead of the 11 herbs and spices one I'd usually indulge in in the Philippines, here I get my fowl fix with a Cajun twist and a biscuit on the side.

For you see, folks, while here in the Lion City, my fried chicken fast food brand of choice is Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen.

Popeyes @ Jubilee Square, Singapore

If memory serves me right, I had my first taste of a Popeyes' fried chicken in the early 2000s.  There was a branch in Robinson's Place Manila where the Madir, the Bro, and I had lunch one scorching sunny day after school.

It was not, however, love at first bite.  Having been so used to our KFC food version (which I've been loving since the early days when they were still serving rolls and not rice), the taste of a Popeyes' chicken just didn't sit well with me.  Plus I hated the bland biscuit, so different from the KFC roll of yore.

But since moving here in the Lion City and having been wholly dissatisfied with the Colonel's version here, the well-meaning Husband bought me to a Popeyes branch and the rest, as they say, is history.

2pcs Bonafide® chicken combo meal

My second taste of a Popeyes chicken, coupled with coleslaw and their signature biscuit (slathered with a generous spoonful of strawberry jam, please) has resulted in a once-a-month love affair that I just can't seem to ignore.

Their 2pcs Bonafide® chicken combo meal, which comes with a biscuit, choice of side and drink (sells for S$8.30/Php273.90*); is now my favorite fast food fried chicken meal.

Chicken and biscuit

Chicken pieces here are huge!  But that doesn't stop me from finishing 2 in one sitting (I'm such a glutton.  J)  The biscuit is as bland as I remember it to be; but add a little lot of strawberry jam along with a piece of chicken, and you have yourself one flavorful combination.


Unlimited Heinz strawberry jam is available when dining-in

Can't beat the coleslaw here too.  A little mild but definitely tasty.  Their Cajun fries are also favorites, especially of the Little One who loves eating them with ketchup.

Ahhh... yes.  Popeyes Louisiana Kitchen -- temporarily satisfying my KFC (Philippines' version) fast food fried chicken cravings since May 2012 (although they've been in operations in Singapore much longer than that.)  J

Hmmm...

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!  =)
