Wee Nam Kee

Saturday, June 18, 2011
Last February, Jeff bought two coupons from a groupbuy site, Buyanihan. It's a package of body scrub, body wrap and full body massage. We were able to redeem it today. He actually gave the other one to his sister but I suggested that he go with me today because he had a rough week. He's been out of town the entire week, not for fun but for work.

Our appointment was at 12:30PM but we arrived a little late, around 1PM at the Olympia Spa. It's in the Olympia Hotel along Makati Avenue. The scrub/wrap/spa lasted for about 2.5 hours and I was already starving. I asked Jeff if we can eat at Bonchon. This time he said, 'Again?', and suggested Wee Nam Kee instead. Hahaha.

Wee Nam Kee is a Singaporean restaurant. I lived in Singapore for a year and Hainanese Chicken Rice, or simply chicken rice was my staple food for a year. I've eaten in so many chicken rice stores and hawkers around Singapore. Some were as expensive as $5 and some are as cheap as $1. In Singapore, if the chicken rice is $5, it's already expensive unless you are in a hotel or in mall restaurants. Normal price is $2-3. Anyway, this is not our first time to eat in a Singaporean resto. On the day we became a couple, we had lunch at Orchard Road in Megamall after we went to his Lego exhibit. Too bad we don't have pictures then.

Today we have pictures. Bad pictures because I again used my Blackberry. I didn't bring my DSLR today because I am so lazy.

Wee Nam Kee Ayala Triangle Gardens.

The condiments. That's chili paste, garlic paste and soy sauce. 

Soup was served first.

Our roasted hainanese chicken.
Price: I forgot hehe.

Cereal Prawns. The menu said it's only four pieces. Ours was five. :D

Next Singaporean restaurant I want to visit is the Makansutra in the Manila Ocean Park. :)
