4 Fingers: Another BonChon?

From Korea to the Philippines, the BonChon craze is here to stay as more Filipinos go crazy over this tasty, crunchy, fried chicken. Because of its popularity, other BonChon-inspired restaurants emerged on the dining scene including Philippine pride Manang's Chicken and the newly-opened 4 Fingers. I did a little research about this restaurant and found out that its first branch is in Singapore, but now it has several branches in the Philippines and Indonesia. I thought it was a US-based company because of the interiors of the restaurant. You will feel like you're in New York because of the music, graffiti, and pipes on the ceiling. 

We ate at the North Edsa branch, which is located at the ground floor beside National Bookstore so it is easy to find. My sister gave me a voucher worth P300 of food, isn't it nice eating for free? Aside from the Korean-style chicken, there are other choices in the menu like Chicken Burger, Calamari, and Salad. 
We ordered the 2-piece Drumstick Rice Box Meal worth P149 each and that already included rice and drink. I just ordered extra rice because I shared mine with my son (typical mommy-saving move). 

The chicken was delicious, tasty, and crunchy, but it would have been better if it was bigger. For its price, it's surely worth it, but BonChon is cheaper by 4 pesos and it's a well-known restaurant. They should have at least matched the price, or better yet made it cheaper or added some side-dish to their boxed meal. 
I really don't know why Korean-style fried chicken is this good...aside from frying it twice, maybe they added a secret ingredient like the 5 fingers...I mean 4 fingers :)

MyHealth Clinic Takes Care of My Health

Getting sick is a real pain in the *** but to wait for a long queue in discomfort and end up with a list of expensive medicines to  buy would definitely make anyone feel more sick! I was glad I have a health card from work so that lessens my worry about the check up and laboratory expenses. I usually go to Medical City Clinic in Trinoma and Waltermart for the check-up but my experience there was not really that good especially in Waltermart, Munoz. The nurses there and attendants seem so laid back (which is a better term for being lazy) and busy chatting with each other. I waited for a long time (around 30 min.) just to have my Maxicare approved and after that I went to the nurse's station to give my papers but the girl was busy on her phone so the guy beside her placed my paper on her table and told me to wait for my name to be called. So I waited for my name to be called and it was almost an hour. I was really wondering why it would take that long just to have my blood extracted…

Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad

Ampalaya (Eng: bitter melon)is hated by many because of its bitter taste. It is rare to find a kid eating ampalaya and even only a few adults would dare ate this vegetable. I think the first time I ate ampalaya was in grade school when we were asked by our teacher to eat it since it signifies the bitter herb mentioned in the Bible. Now that I am all grown up and enjoy eating all kinds of food, I happen to love ampalaya. My former colleague brought ampalaya salad  at work and it was good! You won't taste its bitternes so I asked her how she did it. I made it at home and mom liked it, but my sister did not because she said it was still bitter. FAIL! 
As years go by, I think I have finally perfected making the not-so-bitter Ampalaya (Bitter Melon) Salad. I am going to share this to those who love this green veggie and the first-timers who dare to taste it.

Ingredients:

3 tomatoes chopped into medium pieces
1 white onion chopped into small pieces
2 salted red eggs (itlog na maalat/pula) ch…
