Hangover craving
Posted on

Many times after a trip abroad, you go home craving for something you had during your holiday.
It could be Swedish meatballs from Ikea, cheese pizza from Target, yang chow fried rice from room service in Hong Kong, tendon from Tokyo or any silly little thing you ate that was so wonderful at that time.

Solo cheese from Pizza Hut

On our last night in Singapore, my sister Ana and I made a grand plan to wake up early so we could eat McDonald’s seaweed fries for the last time. Our call time was 11:30 AM. I woke up at 10:30 and moved my ass 15 minutes later. Ana moved her ass ever so slowly at 11 AM.
So we didn’t have time for fries, as the parents were already at the lobby ahead of time, with the van and the uncle saying good-by.
When we got to Changi airport I had to claim my GST refund which was almost SG$500 (sayang din yon). I love GST refund because that money either goes to last-minute shopping at the airport, or towards the next Singapore trip.

!

Mom and Dad went ahead through Immigration and to the airport lounge, while Ana waited for me to check in.
Seeing that we still had an hour before boarding, we walked very briskly to the nearby McDonald’s and ordered two Cokes, hot wings, and seaweed fries. (Sorry Dad! That’s what we were doing when you called!)
I can’t tell you how ecstatic we were to see the Golden Arches before leaving SG!

Magical golden arches

This was our order, plus two Cokes.

Hot wings and fries

The fries come with this tiny packet of seasoning and a brown paper bag.
I asked the cashier if I could buy extra seasoning as I wanted Jeroen to try. If could, I would’ve bought ten more pieces because I knew the hangover would happen back in Manila.

You take the fries out of the container and pour them inside the brown paper bag.
Open the packet and throw in the seaweed powder.

If you’re happy and you know it, roll the bag down and eat! Wash down with an ice-cold Coke.

Maybe you can try the seaweed packets in the Japanese grocery store, the ones that come in different flavors that are supposed to be mixed into steamed rice to flavor it.  Some of the packets are in powder form.  One packet is good for a cup of rice so maybe good for large fries as well?  I’ve never tried seaweed fries so I’m not sure if they will taste the same.

Seaweed fries + Coke is luuuuuv to the highest exponential level! Deadma sa diet, deadma sa inches. I’m lucky (or unlucky) enough to have McDonald’s branches close to where I live and where I work. I have suki cashier na nga eh and she gives me extra condiments. 🙂 PS. I love Ana’s expression – so gleeful!!! 🙂 Katuwa ang adventures nyong mag seesters. 🙂 Ms. C, you want me to hoard the seaweed packets for you? 😛 [Reply]CVS Reply:May 24th, 2011 at 9:32 PMyes can you please mail them to me!! :))) [Reply]The_Sung_Empress Reply:May 24th, 2011 at 9:51 PMI… Read more »

bakit yung mcdo sa singapore bongga ang condiments section, kumpleto with creamer, tissue, sugar, salt, and everything you ever need?  tsaka they also have milo, hot and iced, plus corn kernels, and healthy options such as grilled chicken sandwich or salad. [Reply]CVS Reply:May 24th, 2011 at 12:18 PMbecause almost everything is more bongga there [Reply]Jan Reply:May 24th, 2011 at 6:42 PMI think they don’t put creamer, tissue, sugar, salt and other condiments out there for the public to just get because too many Pinoys hoard 🙁  [Reply]Ria Pascua Reply:May 25th, 2011 at 6:58 AM& masarap yun spicy chicken wings +… Read more »

We should have this here. All we have in Manila (pag Shake-Shake Fries season, whenever that is) are cheese powder and sour cream 🙁

Hmmm… does it taste like nori? Pwede siguro zapping nori wrappers in a food processor, as for the other seasoning, maybe sea salt and other spices?

 That pizza reminds me of the cheese pizza from Domino’s! I’m sure it has half the cheese of the Target pizza pero sige pwede na.
