If you’re chicken rice-obsessed like me, you’d know that it is best served yellow!
Unfortunately we don’t really have fatty yellow chicken like they do in Hong Kong, Singapore, and Malaysia.
That’s because they’re more expensive. And imported (obviously).
For a limited time only, Wee Nam Kee will be serving yellow chicken at Serendra in Bonifacio and the new Glorietta in Makati. Enjoy it from May 1-June 30, 2013 only!
It’s my first time to visit the new Glorietta. We were invited to dine there by Linfred Yap, Philippines franchise holder of Wee Nam Kee Singapore.
The place looks tons nicer than Wee Nam Kee Singapore, for sure!
This is Singapore
And this is Glorietta—voila!
Linfred showed me white chicken (left) vs. yellow chicken (right), steamed and roasted
He had me at yellow!!
Here’s what we had: a mixed platter of both (with chicken rice, of course!)
Sambal kangkong which I loved. Plus a roast pork dish
More roasted pork in hot pot with tausi
Yellow chicken owes its color and fat content to a high-protein diet composed primarity of corn, which makes its meat more succulent and its skin, well, fatty.
It’s boiled in Wee Nam Kee’s secret stock for an even more flavorful taste.
Available steamed or roasted, they’re best savored with chicken rice, complemented by pounded ginger, chili sauce, and dark soya sauce.
For a limited time only, enjoy it here in Manila only at Wee Nam Kee Serendra and Glorietta 2.

I took this test and got a 34. I think this is a fairly accurate description of me.
31 TO 40 POINTS: Others see you as sensible, cautious, careful & practical. They see you as clever, gifted, or talented, but modest. Not a person who makes friends too quickly or easily, but someone who’s extremely loyal to friends you do make and who expects the same loyalty in return. Those who really get to know you, realize it takes a lot to shake your trust in your friends, but equally that it takes you a long time to get over if that trust is ever broken.

Now add up the total number of points, check your total, and see how others see you.
OVER 60 POINTS: Others see you as someone they should handle with care. You’re seen as vain, self-centered, and extremely dominant. Others may admire you, wishing they could be more like you, but don’t always trust you, hesitating to become too deeply involved with you.
51 TO 60 POINTS: Others see you as an exciting, highly volatile, rather impulsive personality, a natural leader, who’s quick to make decisions, though not always the right ones. They see you as bold and adventuresome, someone who will try anything once, someone who takes chances and enjoys an adventure. They enjoy being in your company because of the excitement you radiate.
41 TO 50 POINTS: Others see you as fresh, lively, charming, amusing, practical, and always interesting, someone who’s constantly in the center of attention, but sufficiently well-balanced not to let it go to their head. They also see you as kind, considerate, and understanding, someone who’ll always cheer them up and help them out.
31 TO 40 POINTS: Others see you as sensible, cautious, careful, and practical. They see you as clever, gifted, or talented, but modest. Not a person who makes friends too quickly or easily, but someone who’s extremely loyal to friends you do make and who expects the same loyalty in return. Those who really get to know you, realize it takes a lot to shake your trust in your friends, but equally that it takes you a long time to get over if that trust is ever broken.
21 TO 30 POINTS: Your friends see you as painstaking and fussy. They see you as very cautious, extremely careful, a slow and steady plodder. It would really surprise them if you ever did something impulsively or on the spur of the moment, expecting you to examine everything carefully from every angle and then, usually decide against it. They think this reaction is caused partly by your careful nature.
UNDER 21 POINTS: People think you are shy, nervous, and indecisive, someone who needs looking after, who always wants someone else to make the decisions and who doesn’t want to get involved with anyone or anything! They see you as a worrier who always sees problems that don’t exist. Some people think you’re boring. Only those who know you well, know that you aren’t.
While waiting for the next installment of the Barretto family saga, take a break and watch the three sisters—Gretchen, Marjorie, and Claudine—in a friendly interview by Boy Abunda in Private Conversations, back when
Gretchen was a natural beauty, Marjorie was with Dennis Padilla, Rico Yan was still alive, and Boy Abunda had a little bit more hair.
Headlining the music festival is Australian five-piece outfit The Temper Trap, best known for upbeat joyride tracks “Sweet Disposition,” “Fader” and “Need Your Love.”
Joining them are two American alt-rock bands: Neon Trees, who rose to popularity with certified charttoppers “Animal,” “Everybody Talks” and “1983”
and Nada Surf, responsible for the ‘90s coming-of-age track “Popular,” the melancholy “Inside of Love” and its unforgettable rendition of the new wave anthem “If You Leave” from the seminal soundtrack of “The O.C.”
The lineup offers more indie-pop goodness in the form of New Zealand-based folk group Avalanche City
Australian pop duo Colour Coding
and the female-fronted indie quintet from Melbourne, Tully on Tully.
Homegrown talents Up Dharma Down, Taken By Cars, Pulso, Yolanda Moon, and She’s Only Sixteen round up the cast.
Tickets are priced at PhP 4,800 (exclusive of ticket service charge) available at all TicketNet, TicketWorld and SM Tickets outlets. Gates open at 11 AM.
