No Nut Foods In Plane

Pregnant women about to give birth is forbidden in airplane for a reason. Possible gain of foreign citizenship is one but not the main.  Imagine how would you attend to a laboring mom in middle of the flight! I can’t figure it out. Maybe it its different in actual situation. I’m not a flight attendant, so I should not worry about it.

I remembered the Indian movie “Three Idiots”. A guy boarded in plane pretended to have heart attack. The plane did an emergency landing to save his life. I can’t help wonder if the same scenario happened in real.

I’m bringing up the situation above because of the food the plane crew is serving.  Besides on having an ingredient list, the known food allergen are also written.  In case the person involve is allergic to that particular food. Then he can return it and ask for a  safer alternative.

The common is nut allergy. In case someone has it, he is required to inform the carrier at least 48 hours before flight. I suppose the management will prepare special meal for the person concern. Bringing own food is the best option, I think. 

This time was chicken adobo bun. It was not the first. Has 306kcal for a 100 g bread. Known allergens were milk, wheat and egg.   I guessed not so many have problem on these.  Maybe they avoid serving nuts. A prevention that will save them from headaches. 


Has anyone of you received nuts or nut containing snacks while on board? What did you do?

I Love BonChon! | Chap Chae, Chicken Drums and Thighs

It was my second time eating at Bonchon. It was in SM Mall of Asia Mall grounds the first time. I also took pictures for documentation but I forgot putting it online.

I Love Bonchon! I got the article title from their very own slogan. It is a nice and catchy slogan. I your going to brag about where you ate, your going to ” I love Bonchon!” Even if you never say the words “I love”, it is going to cross your mind most of the time.

For those who are not familiar with the name yet, bonchon is a Korean word that means “my hometown”. So their slogan literally means “I love my hometown”. Knowing what it means makes the slogan nicer and more memorable.

The restaurant originates from South-Korea.

Our orders:

One Chap Chae for 79 pesos. I call it pansit with strands almost four times bigger than ordinary Pinoy version. Has a dark brown complexion. Combination of sweet and saucy taste sets it apart from other pansit that I have tasted. I am sure the sauce is soy sauce variant. Chap chae or jap chae is a Korean glass noodles.

Two sets of Chicken Drums and Thighs with 2 Iced Teas for 155 pesos per set. The order we’ve got were really thighs and drums. It’s unlike Jollibee and McDo where they give chicken parts at random and you have to point out before hand if you want a specific part. She said it was garlic flavored chicken but I barely perceived it. What dominated was, again, the soy sauce. I see it as Mang Inasal’s with a very different taste. Generally good but I found it too salty for my taste buds.

Thank goodness, their iced tea tasted just right. Not too sweet and not two bland!

Two extra rice for 40 pesos. One rice order each were was simply not enough. We are touring are two kids around the mall after the meal. We need extra energy to ride with their naughtiness.

KFC Fully Loaded Meal

Fully loaded meal? I was still thinking about my order but it was already my turn. I never wanted the persons behind me to wait long, neither the crew. I chose it as it was the first I saw. It seemed by brain thinking got slower due to hunger. Maybe people doesn’t really care much about what they eat when hungry. This was it. Time to chow! Continue reading “KFC Fully Loaded Meal”

The Mang Inasal Chicken Meal

I got a lucky nap today. I slept for a couple of minutes then a pack lunch was by my side when I woke up. It was Mang Inasal’s. The size seemed big and more than enough for a lunch. Too bad! I already took my lunch before taking a nap. The delivery girl should have delivered it earlier.

mang inasal pack lunch padeliver na number mang inasal pack lunchI set the pack lunch aside and waited until 4 pm before opening. This was in contrast with what was stated on the package, “consume immediately”.

mang inasal pack lunch consume immediatelyWhat I thought big was really too small for me. It maybe enough for individual with small tummy. I was guessing it is one of the fast food’s budget meal. The package included one roasted chicken piece, three packs sauce (soy sauce) and one rice serving about 2/3 of my closed fist.

The roasted chicken breast had a burnt skin. Suggestive that it was really roasted, not fried.  I could not really describe how it taste. It was simply delectable. Not so tasty, not spicy but it was really good. Even the burnt skin never tasted burnt.

I opened only one sauce sachet because I am cutting down on salt. I poured some on roasted chicken breast and rice just to see how it looks and sense how it taste.
