SG | The Golden Duck's Gourmet Salted Egg Yolk Potato Chips

A fairly recent food fad spreading over Singapore is the salted egg anything.  Yes, you've heard me right.  Itlog na maalat in our shores.

Sure, it's not really such a new thing for us but here, salted egg sauce is dished on to almost every imaginable thing.  It's made its appearance in paos, McDonald's burgers, and, my personal fave, Breadtalk croissants, among others.

Why is it so popular?  In the right hands, salted egg sauce provides the perfect combination of sweet and salty, making it a tasty accompaniment to various dishes.

One of the more famous egg salted covered eats to come out of this fad is the salted egg yolk potato chip.   And here in Singapore, one of more well-know brands is by The Golden Duck.


The Golden Duck's Gourmet Salted Egg Yolk Potato Chips


Baked potato chips coated with salted egg powder.  Sounds delicious, right?  But you have to prepare to pay the price.  At S$7 (approx Php238) a bag, it does not come cheap!

But the temptation was so strong that we finally threw our hands up and and bought a bag for the family to share.

Yum?

The verdict?

Too oily making the chips a bit soggy.  And I had such high hopes!  I hate oil drenched chips.  It is a bit salty and sweet, with a tad bit of spice for a bit of kick.

Is it addictive, as the bag states?  Not for me, though.  Even the junk food lovin' Hubby had to pass.  Not sure if we got a bag from a bad batch as reviews for this product bordered on Outstanding...

But I guess it is an experience, good for a first try.  Maybe next time, we'll get luckier.  :)

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!  =)
