Major Major Catching Up

My oh my! So many things have happened in the last 9 months that I was not able to find time to update getlostinmakati! I am very sorry about this especially to all my readers who are looking forward to regular updates from me. You see, I have been busy with some other very important things for the last several months that I was forced to set aside blogging about the city that I have come to love for some time. Nevertheless, here I am, making a comeback and hopefully, regardless of my current situation AND current location, which I will talk about in my upcoming posts in the next few days, I will still be able to bring all my readers useful information and hopefully a little bit of entertainment as well as I try to revive this still young blog.

September has arrived and in the Philippines, the start of BER months means the start of the Christmas countdown! And because Christmas is the most celebrated and most important event of the year, Filipinos make sure that they start prepping up for this wonderful occasion. Holiday leaves are being jotted down, Christmas decorations stacked up somewhere in the attic are being brought out to get them cleaned, Christmas lists are getting completed and of course, Christmas shopping has finally started!

Watch out for some useful tips for the early bird Christmas shoppers that GetLostinMakati is going to present within this week!

In the meantime, let me greet all of you an advance Very Merry Christmas!!!

The Chickboy Scandal: What's in Your Ginisang Kangkong sa Bawang?

I have been hearing about Chic-Boy, probably one of the latest fast food eateries that people are raving about for some time now. I have not tried dining in at one of their branches here in Makati yet but there is this " Chickboy Scandal" that is being passed around and shared in different social networks as of the moment that is making me wonder if I will still give Chic-Boy a shot. Apparently, a Chic-Boy fan, now an "EX" fan, ordered a kangkong dish which came with a big, fat and hairy (?) caterpillar in it. If you want to know what happened next, you can just check out the entire rantings of the now ex-ChicBoy fan here. And you be the judge if the whole story is just some sick black propaganda of the "competitors" of Chic-Boy or that it is just a simple ranting of an unfortunate customer who had the biggest luck in the world when it comes to sucking out the goodness from a slimy creature.

Anyway, if you ask me, I believe that instances such as the one cited on the scandal can really happen from time to time and that it should not be generalized by the public. However, instead of acting all defensive and macho, I also believe that any business establishment in the food industry should know how to act responsibly during times like this.

So will I still try Chic-Boy after this nasty and "slimy" scandal? Hmmm, I still don't know. I will still have to think about it. Every time I see the "scandal" pictures, they just make me cringe. We'll see.

Why I Just Could Not Get Enough of World Chicken

I could not believe that I am only writing about probably my most favorite fast food as of the moment. Maybe it is because I feel so full the moment I finished everything on my plate that all I want to do next is sleep. LOL

Anyway, without further adieu, I present to you WORLD CHICKEN! I first discovered World Chicken way back in 2008 when Riju and I went to Trinoma. So why I just could not get enough of this good food?

First - I just love the idea of customizing your order, from your 2 side dishes (or 1 side dish if you are not that hungry) down to the sauce of your health/heart-friendly grilled chicken.

Second - I also think that the serving size of World Chicken is plentiful that nobody will leave his seat still hungry, unless he is a monster if you ask me. Hehehe~

Third - The chicken is not only cooked in a healthy way and that is grilled. The only chicken part that World Chicken cooks is the breast part, the healthiest chicken part. So that is like being  healthy twice! 

Fourth - The chicken is cooked to absolute tenderness.

Fifth - The chicken sauce are superb! My favorite is farmfresh mushroom.

Sixth - The side dishes that people can choose from are a lot. And all of them sure looks really yummy. My favorites are tuna fettucine, bacon rice, asian noodles and mashed potato.

Seventh - Last but definitely not the least, the total price of P158 is very reasonable already considering the quantity, the taste and the fast ordering process (no matter how long the line is) that you will get from this fast food.

However, despite of having said all that, I wonder why there are only a few World Chicken branches scattered all over the city. I hope that they will open more branches in the coming years to spread more chicken goodness all over the country. Anywho, let me show you a sneak preview of what World Chicken has to offer to all you hungry mouths out there. 

Choose your own Chicken World Adventure! Hehehe!
Just looking at this picture makes me drool! Asian noodles is LOVE.
Thank you World Chicken for your wonderful food!

My order for the day, Tuna Fettucine, Bacon Rice & Grilled Chicken with Farmfresh Mushroom Sauce. Yum-O!
Tara! Let's Eat!
