Do you love Hainanese chicken as much as I do? I was able to try it in Singapore and instantly became addicted to it. I can seriously eat it on a weekly basis! And now, I am very happy that I don’t need to go out of the country anymore to satisfy my craving! Wee Nam Kee has authentic Singaporean cuisine and serves one of the best Hainanese chicken I’ve ever tasted (plus their sauces are soooo good). I heard about Wee Nam Kee’s Yellow Chicken Festival online. Intrigued, my friend and I went to Wee Nam Kee in Glorietta 2 right away to check what the rave was all about.
I think we ordered too much for two people. Haha! Wee Nam Kee in Glorietta 2 (just beside Coffee Bean) is much more spacious than any branches I visited. This one has function rooms for gatherings and can accommodate 50-60 people. Which reminds me, my mom’s birthday is coming up….hmmmmmm. :)
Steamed Chicken (Small P288 | Medium P488 | Large P888)—Yummy! It’s delicious and a healthy alternative to fried chicken. Steamed chicken is also good if you’re trying to bulk up.
Hainanese Yellow Chicken Rice (small-php388, medium-php768, large-php1,388)—Here it is! The star of the show! Haha! The yellow chicken is one of the world’s finest chicken breeds famed for its extra juicy flavor. It’s more premium than regular chicken because the skin is thicker and fatter when it’s cooked—so it’s juicier and more tender. You could really tell the difference from the white chicken. This is worth a try!
I asked the crew why the yellow chicken is thicker and they told me it’s because of the chicken’s diet! They have their own exercise routine, they are walked around for a while then they are sent back to their cage. Unlike the local chicken wherein they run a lot so they have skinny…chicken legs. lol.
Take advantage of the Yellow Chicken Festival because they only have it till June 30—and it’s available in only 2 of their branches (Glorietta 2 and Serendra).
Stir-fried Clams in Spicy Sauce (php280)—If you like Singapore’s chili crabs, this one is something similar! I’m not a big fan of spicy food but this one is really good! You can request it if you want to make it spicier or lessen it.
Fried Mantou Bread (4pcs)—One of my favorites! You can dip it to the spicy sauce of the stir-fried clams or the chili crab. I personally like it with condensed milk! Eat it while it’s hot and crispy!
Cucumber Lime Fizz (Php120)—The cucumber lime is so refreshingly good! Perfect for this crazy summer weather!
Marmite Pork Ribs (Php270)—Pork fried ribs coated in sweet marmite sauce topped with sesame seeds. It’s the vegemite that the Aussies eat with their breakfast, Wee name Kee turned it into a dish! Very tasty.
Hainanese Yellow Chicken Rice (Steamed and Roasted Combination-php1,388)—a combination of steamed yellow chicken and roasted chicken. Both tastes awesome but I personally like the steamed one better.
Hainanese chicken isn’t complete without the unlimited pounded ginger, dark soya sauce and chili sauce! I love how Wee Nam Kee is so generous when it comes to their condiments. But the thing is, you don’t need a lot because the dishes taste good on their own!
Warm Roti with Milk Tea Sauce (php115)—There’s always room for dessert. We’re so lucky we have desserts here! (Singaporeans are not big on desserts). Wee Nam Kee came up with playful renditions of Southeast Asian desserts like warm roti coated with milk tea sauce with caramelized bananas!
3 Flavor Chocolate Truffle Buchi (php88)—My personal favorite! I highly recommend this one! This isn’t your ordinary buchi. It’s hot and crispy outside then you get that melted chocolate goodness when you bite it! There’s dark chocolate, milk chocolate and white chocolate! I highly recommend that you end your meal with this!!!! Your belly will not regret it!
Mango Sago Pudding (php185)—Wee Nam Kee took the components of mango sago and turned them into a tapioca pudding with panna cotta at the bottom. Very festive and refreshing!
Visit Wee Nam Kee at Glorietta 2, Serendra, Ayala Triangle, Shangri-La Plaza, Trinoma, Alabang Town Center and The District Cavite.
Wore this to the VIP opening of the newest mall in town—SM Aura Premier! It was such a fun, crazy and hectic night. My friends and I had to jump from one event to another. There were countless ribbon cutting ceremonies, blessings and shows! They also launched Hollywood A-lister Sarah Jessica Parker as the face of the new upscale mall. SM Aura Premier is a work of art—and it opens to the public today! I’ll be there for the Forever 21 fashion show at 6! See you there!
Button down from Lyle & Scott | The last time I wore this was at my graduation! I’m glad it fits better now. Haha! Available at Bratpack Greenbelt 5.

Shoes from Milanos | I wanted to wear something from SM so I wore these babies from Milanos! Got these on sale for only 200 bucks! Such a steal!

Went to the launch of Crocs’ new collection last week at Whitemoon Bar. My favorite comfort footwear brand officially announces the arrival of their take on the classic topsiders! The event was perfect because it was overlooking Manila Bay and we got a gorgeous view of the sunset. I’m really happy to be representing Crocs once again along with Laureen and Camille. I’ve been a Crocs lover ever since I got my first pair. Here’s what I wore to the event!
Short sleeve button down from Uniqlo | I like how the color of the button down is soothing to the eyes—plus the pigeon print (naks pigeon talaga) added a nice little touch since there were tons of
kalapati pigeons along the bay.
Boat shoes from Crocs | What I love about Crocs’ boat shoe line is that it has the look of a classic topsider, but has the feel of Crocs which we all love. Every time I slip on a pair of Crocs, I feel the comfort. We boys are accustomed to heavy footwear, but Crocs is entirely different with how they were able to make a whole day of walking bearable.
Case from Love for Cases | I saw this beautiful photo of the ocean (I’m deep like that lol) and had it made into an iphone case!
