KFC Crispy Butter Chicken

For only p99, you can now enjoy the newest fried chicken offering of KFC, the Crispy Butter Chicken meal.

When i first saw the ad in one of the KFC stores I pass by everyday, I thought to myself, finally I can eat a crispy chicken in KFC (because I am not a fan of hot and spicy foods).


So awhile ago, I ordered the KFC Crispy Butter Chicken meal for lunch. The meal cost 99p and comes with 1pc. Chicken (chicken part of your choice, provided it's available), butter rice, mash potato topped with corn kernels and your choice of drink (soda and juice only).

As the name states, it is CRISPY and BUTTER chicken. The chicken is marinated in and breaded with butter. The crispy skin of the chicken would show that it is indeed #BetterWithButter because of the salty and sweet flavored butter. The mash potato siding is like three spoons of mash potato then with sprinkles of corn kernels. The butter rice compliments though to the meal, making it ultimately “all-butter themed meal”.


I was not satisfied though with the meal, probably because the buttery and garlicky (if I spelled it right) taste of the chicken is not what I was expecting. For me it’s nothing special at all, just a crunchy-not-spicy chicken of KFC. I don’t even think the gravy is a fit for a sauce with the chicken.


For butter-loving persons, they might like this so give it a try.


I would still go for the Original Recipe, I like the salty chicken flavor of this recipe.

Kinder Joy: The Joyful Surprise

Who doesn’t like surprises?

Studies show our brain likes surprises. These little unexpected things or events means so much to us because it gives us joy.

Psychologist Norbert Schwarz conducted a classic study where it was found that a small but pleasant surprise, such as finding 10 cents, uplifts a person’s mood. Schwarz repeatedly placed a coin near a copy machine where it can be easily seen. When the subjects who found the coin were surveyed shortly thereafter, their overall satisfaction with life was significantly higher than those who did not find the coin. Surprises have, indeed, powerful effects.

Pleasant surprises can improve one’s disposition.


One time, my office mate Cian, once bought us a pasalubong-for-kids type of thing. We were giddy as a kid in a candy store, it’s a big colored egg! When we opened it, it has two surprises! Chocolate on the left side and a toy on the right side! It was indeed a surprise!


The joy and pleasure of discovering something new was irresistible.

Kinder Joy is now in the Philippines to spread delightful surprise, provide joy and unique chocolate treat.

Feel good and experience a huge surprise happening on October 19 & 20, 2013, from 10am to 10pm at the SM Mall of Asia (MOA) Activity Center. Expect fun-filled activities and awesome surprises on top of yet another big reveal—a special guest who will surely charm Filipino kids and their families.

Come and explore the amazing world of surprises!

Starbucks White Chocolate Pudding

Tried Starbucks newest drink yesterday. They were on buy one take one promo from 2pm-5pm. 

It's Dark Mocha with White Chocolate Pudding and Green Tea with White Chocolate Pudding. It looks something like this if it will be served on a clear plastic cup, but since Makati has a new "no plastic" policy to follow it was served in their traditional white paper cups. 

I tried the Dark Mocha since that's the only drink I love from Starbucks, kiddin'. The white pudding added a contrasting texture to my usual blended drink with chocolate chips. I would recommend then to try white chocolate pudding to plain blended drinks. I think you can make this an Add-On to your drink. Just not sure! 

They also have a new cake addition! It's called Outrageous Cheesecake because all 3 outrageous flavors in one cheesecake! It's Mango, Blueberry and Strawberry cheesecake in one big cake! Got this photo from my friend's blog Azrael. 

Head on to your nearest Starbucks to try these new offerings!

Angel's Pizza Lenten Pizzas

The Lenten season is now here and as a tradition, and as for some believers, they go through the period of preparation of prayer, penance, and repentance and this includes abstaining from eating meat.

As the start of the Holy Week, people will now look for other variations of food they can eat, especially seafood and vegetables. Angel’s Pizza’s newest offering for the Lenten Season includes Garlic Shrimp and Margherita.

Angel’s Pizza's Garlic Shrimp is a wonderful offering specially for seafood and shrimp lovers! Pizza smothered with mozzarella cheese with shrimp surprises is a personal favorite now. The garlic kick of the pizza made it more interesting.

Prices are Medium – 329p, Family – 470p, Big Family – 556p.

Angel’s Pizza’s Margherita is a sure hit for the vegans and health conscious pizza lovers. Topped with fresh tomato and basil leaves in a bed of mozzarella cheese, this pizza creates a colourful and contrasting taste of sweet and saltines. A lot cheaper than Garlic Shrimp too!

Prices are Medium – 297p, Family – 416p, Big Family – 491p.

Both pizzas are available in thin and thick crust.
