My return to Smoper Korean Chicken


Ha! I returned to Smoper Korean Chicken in BGC and I ordered a massive load of chickens for take out.. why? because I want to bring it home and let my family try it. Bec. BGC is too far in our home, the only way for them to try Smoper here, is that I should buy one and bring it home.

So I ordered 16 chickens!!!
all plain with no flavor, because I told them to separate the sauces.

I’m not a kitchen person or a guy who loves to cook, but I try my best to learn the good and right way of cooking and also selecting the right ingredients for our food and also food items at the grocery. Back in the old days, I always accompany my dad in buying fresh food ingredients in a local wet and dry market in our town, its just across a highway and we need to play “patintero” with a bus while crossing. I just watch and learn on how my dad buy freshly distributed dead chickens, hahaha that’s what I call it. I just don’t care that time where the chickens came from, but all we know that the chickens are clean and we haven’t got sick after our first buy, so after that we just buy our ingredients and also chicken to our “suki” seller (only seller we patronize). But that was in the old years and I think it’s the year 1990’s were the last time I went to a local wet and dry market with my dad and mom. But times have changed and we encounter lots of bocha chickens or double dead chickens – struck with diseases or died naturally. And we know that eating those double dead are bad to our health.

I’m the man on top! hahahaha thanks Rogin-E

The man on top is the new meaning for Rogin-E, that’s what they want to show that a man who takes Rogin-E is always on top of everything, and here at the finale party of The Apprentice Asia, I just spotted their booth and got a chance to try that mafia chair with two bombshells.

Last FHM 100 Sexiest Women party, they also have that photo op in one of their booths, but it was an exclusive invites only for those who brought the Rogin-E invite card that came along with a pack of Rogin-E bought from participated Mercury Drug stores.

I didn’t got a chance to try the photo op back then, but here..I’m now a mafia boss for 5 seconds hahaah

Everyone joked at me and said … “ hala..sumbong ka namin kay Lace!” haahhahaha

Not sure..If the girl on the left was there at the FHM event, but I’m sure the girl on the right was there, and thought that she might be a he ahahahaa. But here, I can tell that she’s a genuine she.

But if I'm wrong.... just TELL ME!! right away hahahaha

I supported Rogin-E for their campaign and tie up with FHM last month.

8 food venues in one day
I signed up for this coffee tour, but the tour is more than just a coffee experience tour but it’s a day of food adventure for me. I woke up at 4am and thought that I can blog more on that hour and slept for 5 hours only. But the social media networks were so busy that time and I found myself chatting with some friends and also reading some articles online and some blogs, so I forgot about the time and left late at 6:30am of Saturday. I arrived in my 1st destination which is in Green Bean Coffee café inside Hotel H20 in Manila Ocean Park. It’s the 1st café that offers coffee that is 100% certified organic by the USDA, and it’s a new café that we should check out , because their branches and pop out café are growing. They have 10 branches nationwide and 4 more will be opened soon.
