North Park’s Fried Noodles

Last month (while storm signal #2 is up in Metro Manila), my mom “forced” (Yes, forced. Haha!) us to go to Market Market BGC to go SHOPPING. How cool is that (or crazy?)?! Haha! She really loves shopping, rain or shine, nobody can stop her. LOL! 🙂

 

After battling with the storm going to the mall which is an hour and half away from our home, we finally arrived and as a “bribe” my sister and I got the chance to choose which restaurant we would go for lunch. (Simple joys, food!) So, we picked to eat at North Park restaurant.

 

 

What did we order? We had broccoli in oyster sauce, Yang Chow fried rice, Lechon Macau and of course their very famous Yee Mien fried noodles! All of the dishes we ordered are very palatable but this fried noodles is the “star” of our lunch. 🙂

 

Yee Mien (or Yi Mien / Yee-fu) is a variety of flat Cantonese egg noodles made from wheat flour.  They are known for their golden yellow color and chewy characteristics. The slightly chewy and slightly spongy texture of the noodles is due to the soda water used in making the dough (as opposed to regular non-carbonated water), which was then fried and dried into flat patty-like dried bricks.

Fried noodles… 😚

Since I am not a cook, and my tongue and palate are not good enough, I am not able to distinguish the ingredients behind the flavorful sauce of this fried noodles but it is INDEED very Y U M M Y!

 

 

For only 178 pesos ($3.68) , this Yee Mien fried noodles can be shared by 4-5 persons. Very cheap for an amazing dish! You should try it, too!

 

I’ll try my best to replicate this with my own version and will share with you the recipe soon! I hope it’ll get atleast closer to how it really taste. (Crossing my fingers!)  ‘Til my next food trip, bye!

Mobile Game Review: Bakery Story

I could say I’m an “addict” of mobile games, but I SUPER HATE game requests and notifications on Facebook. They are annoying. They fill up most of my notifications that I find a hard time browsing the important ones. And I hate it when there are new game requests from my Facebook friends that I need to restrict or block again so as it won’t be included in my notification feed.

 

Hey, friends, we do not have the same tastes on mobile games and apps. I don’t want to be rude or something but I can browse and install any game I would like to play. You can suggest a good game but please DO NOT FLOOD my notif feed requesting to play with you on a particular game/s OVER and OVER!

 

Okay, this shouldn’t actually be a rant, rather, I would like to share would you one good mobile game that I’ve been playing for the past 2-3 months. It’s called BAKERY STORY.

This ONLY an online game. Meaning, you cannot play without an internet connection. The TOP thing I like about this game is that you can have online friends who can play with you and help you accomplish your goals without asking or requesting to gain friends from Facebook.

 

As seen from the title, this is a baking game in which you design your own restaurant or café and bake food, brew drinks,  etc.

 

And as mentioned, you can add friends online through the game itself who obviously like, play and have interest in this game, too. They are also real people playing the game from different parts of the world whom you can chat or interact with through wall posts. You and your friends can accomplish the goals of the game by requesting parts (like materials in building an oven) and sharing in-game gifts. You get a summary of these notifications every time you log in to the game.

It’s up to you if you’ll either accept or decline the requests. Of course, I usually do accept so that my requests would also be reciprocated. It’s a give and take thing.

 

On the baking side, you get to enjoy various baked goodies and drinks as well as earn awards and get promoted. Some little accomplishments that keeps you going in the game…and crave for MORE. 😃

The only “hard” thing about this game is earning much money for expansion. (Option: install other Storm8 games to earn gems to be used for the expansion.) But for me, it’s tolerable because that is what keeps you going on playing this game, right? Otherwise, if you can instantly get all you need for expansion and all, you can finish the game in no time and what’s next? Uninstall right away? Or give comments and feedbacks that the game is so easy to finish and that there are no more expansion updates or whatsoever? Think.

It’s a user-friendly, easy to play and understand game. It’s a healthy escape from your daily routines. I could say, it is both entertaining and challenging. It can be played by kids and grown ups…uhmm..like me. Haha!

 

My only suggestion for now… I hope you can choose in which counter you would like to put your baked goodies especially if you have different designs of counters. Like dimsums for dimsum counters, or wherever you would freely like to put them. Other than this, I’m perfectly fine with the game. I will not delete it…so far. Haha!

 

If you are encouraged by my post, feel free to try it too. 😊 HAPPY PLAYING!
