Huge Spider Found on Chowking’s Special Vegetable Dish

Would you like a side order of insect on your vegetables?

It is not only China who can be notorious with food safety issues. Turns out, even commercialized and big fast food chains in the Philippines can commit this food blunder too. A Facebook post by a pregnant lady discovering some insect on her vegetable dish has gone viral. She allegedly bought a boiled vegetable dish with special sauce called Kangkong in the restaurant Chowking. The woman reportedly ordered the vegetables and was surprised to see something dangling in the leaves.


Chowking is a Filipino fastfood that specializes in Chinese food such as noodles, dim sum, and rice toppings. The restaurant chain has more than 400 branches all over the Philippines, mostly in major shopping malls. It is among the biggest in the country as it is a sister company to another Philippine fast food giant, Jollibee Foods Corporation.

The secret to their yummy vegetable dish!

Here is a transcription of the original Facebook post:

We went back from Nueva Ecija [province in Philippines] and decided to eat in CHOWKING because it is our favorite. Even if people have reported many times finding worms in their noodles, we did not believe it and still continued patronizing it. But because of this incident that happened to me, we have proven how dirty CHOWKING is! Almost all of our orders are already served but I cannot eat yet because I was waiting for my ordered KANGKONG. When it arrived, I started eating.

At first, it was okay. But on my second bite, I noticed something unusual dangling by the leaf. It was disgusting seeing how big the spider was on my food. What’s worse is seeing how the abdomen of the insect was crushed already. I vomited right there and then because of the disgusting sight! When we complained to the manager, they just got the plate of kangkong immediately because we are taking pictures already. I told them I will file legal complaints, they can’t give me any explanation for the incident. They just returned the amount I paid for the Kangkong. It was only 39 Php (0.83 USD). Was that the value of their service, when I almost ate a spider from their food? No! I am pregnant and I will not stop until legal complaints have been filed especially if something bad happens to me or my baby. Now I believe the allegations that you have worms in your noodles. You are disgusting!”

For the record, we think it is not a spider but a cockroach found in the lady’s vegetable dish. That makes it even more disgusting perhaps. This brings to light the Sanitation standards in food chains in the Philippines as well as Quality Assurance policies to customers. It may be an isolated case, but still it is the restaurant’s duty to serve their customers dishes that are safe for consumption.

What would you have done in this situation? Do you have fastfood nightmare stories to tell too? Share below, and share this post to your friends too.

Boston Dynamics Releases Video of Sleigh-Pulling Robots. Seriously, They’re Kinda Creepy!

Not really sure if it would be fun to ride on this sleigh…

Mark Andrew



This video below simply gives me the creeps.

Frankly, it looks like a post-apocalyptic Christmas scenario to me. Santa Claus has been replaced by a woman and the reindeer on the sleigh are, well, not animals but robots.

And they’re pretty scary, to say the least.

People Built Shrine, Held Funeral for Dead Cockroach Someone Forgot to Clean Up

Who knew a cockroach can induce unity and love too? Or was it just the Anthropology department’s social experiment?

Normally, most of us would scamper away in fear, shriek our hearts out or go into genocide mode when we see a cockroach. These critters have earned such disdain and disgust from us humans, that who would actually give a dead cockroach a funeral right? Well apparently, the Anthropology department and a couple of students from Texas A&M University.

On December 3, Associate Professor Michael Alvard of the university's Anthropology department came across a dead cockroach by the stairwell. The dead roach was even named "Rosie Roach" and was given a little tombstone. Alvard snapped a pic and posted in his Facebook with the words,

“There has been a dead cockroach in the anthropology building’s stairwell for at least two weeks. Some enterprising person has now made her a little shrine,”

They prayed for the dead teen to close the gates of heaven so a dying loved one could not enter, not yet.

Stories of near-death experiences send the most intense chills down the spine and create the most thought-provoking imaginations. People who experienced it claim that they saw a blinding light, talked to deceased loved ones and the list goes on. It is a miracle and for Rich Kirkpatrick, it is just one of the many blessings he received in the face of a serious life-threatening situation.

When Rich got sick, he thought he was just down with the flu and thought it was nothing serious. But his wife brought him to the hospital to be sure. When the staff took Rich's blood pressure, he was immediately advised to go to the emergency department as his condition is serious. The family was shocked but little did they know that it was just the start of a surge of miracles.

First, Rich's wife, Jennifer started a prayer chain upon learning her husband's condition. Interestingly, it reached Dr. Joseph Sabik, the chairman for thoracic surgery at Cleveland hospital, where Rich was admitted. When he was informed of the story, Jennifer recalled Dr. Sabik saying:
