NHA HANG $1.99 in Garden Grove, CA

For $3.99... can't beat that!

Taste a lot better than Max's or any fried chicken I tasted before. Not coated with flour, just plain marinated Cornish game hen split in half then deep fried. Served with taste like Java rice, pickled cabbage and soy sauce onion mixture dip.

Don't forget to order it extra crispy if you want your chicken well done :).

Magnum Ice Cream Bars

I have been seeing friends and family from Philippines and here in the US posting pictures and talking highly about Magnum Ice Cream Bars so I drove to Walmart and there it is.I bought a box of Mini Almond and it is truly mouth watering and super delicious! What surprised me the most is it's only 160 calories per mini bar. I am getting me the white chocolate next trip to the store.

Today, Magnum is one of the world's ice cream brands, selling one billion units annually worldwide and it is the biggest brand of Unilever ice creams.
