MANILA, Philippines – Chef, author and TV personality Anthony Bourdain visited a Jollibee restaurant in Los Angeles and ate halo-halo for his new show, “Anthony Bourdain Parts Unknown,” which aired on CNN on Sunday.

Filipino food is not new to Bourdain, who did an entire episode on the Philippines for his previous show, “Anthony Bourdain No Reservations,” where he visited Chinatown and ate lechon, among others.

Sunday’s episode was actually about L.A.’s Koreatown and Bourdain was accompanied by two guides, Korean-Americans Roy Choi and David Choe. Among the restaurants he visited were Dong Il Jang, where he ate bulgogi; and Chego, where he tried the popular kimchi Spam bowl.

But Bourdain’s food trip around Koreatown wasn’t limited to Korean food. He also visited Sizzler, supposedly for the very first time; and tried goat stew and fish curry at a Swadesh in the area’s Little Bangladesh section.

Also in the area is Jollibee, located near Sizzler, and here Bourdain had a taste of halo-halo, which CNN described as a dessert consisting of red beans, white beans, Jell-O, chick peas, coconut, shaved ice and flan.

“It makes no goddamn sense at all. I love it,” Bourdain said of the halo-halo, which he also called “oddly beautiful.”

Bourdain even posted a photo of the halo-halo on his Twitter account.

Bourdain also tried two other Jollibee items, which are not available in the Philippines: the Aloha Burger, with a pineapple slice; and Little Big Bite, which CNN described as a “fried Spam slider.”

    I always say that Make sure that you have a silver polishing cloth on hand for
    your silver jewelry. All silver tarnishes, so a polishing cloth will help you quickly and easily, have your silver
    jewelry looking like new without having to deal with smelly, messy
    silver polish. You can buy a polishing cloth for about $5.

    Some of the best advice I was told about jewellery is that Combine your gold and silver jewelry.
    What used to be “so not in fashion” is now considered modern and sleek.
    Gold earrings can be worn with a silver necklace, or you can even pair gold and silver
    rings on one hand. The color combination goes great with any outfit as well.

    You ought to remember that When you are trying to clean silver,
    the best thing you can do for it is to apply some
    toothpaste to it and let it sit for a while before wiping it off with a
    soft cloth. This helps dingy jewelry to shine and sparkle like it once did.

    Some of the best advice I’ve been given about jewellery is that Avoid buying jewelry while
    gold and silver prices are high. Shop around and look for
    bargains when it is necessary to purchase a ring while gold is at an all
    time high. Shopping at locally owned jewelry stores and staying away from large chain stores, will help you find a quality and reasonably priced piece of jewelry.

    Fill the bowl with kitty litter, dangle your sterling silver jewelry above
    it, and canopy with a zipper-lock bag.

    Because of this excessive purity platinum could be very form to the pores and skin. No-one
    is allergic to precious metals (gold, platinum & silver), the steel allergies some people encounter are
    attributable to a skin response to the other metals which
    could be discovered in the alloys.

    The best advice I’ve been given about jewellery is that If you are looking to purchase sterling silver
    jewelry make sure that you have a magnet with you and a good eye.

    You are able to detect fake pieces of sterling jewelry
    with a magnet, as non precious metals are attracted by the magnet.
    Sterling silver will always be hallmarked with a stamp such as .925, ster.
    or sterling. If the piece is not hallmarked in any way, be leery of its authenticity because oftentimes it is a sign of a fake.

    Some of the best advice I’ve been given about jewellery is that When purchasing a
    silver plated piece of jewelry, immediately paint it with a coat of clear nail
    polish. Doing this will extend the life of the piece.
    It can also prevent those tiny scrapes and scratches that
    are so easy to get. Re-paint the piece once every few months
    for best results.

    My Mum always said that To keep simple costume jewelry pieces from tarnishing,
    chipping or discoloring, simply coat them with a layer of clear acrylic nail polish.
    While you would not want to do this with real gold or silver, this simple and
    cost effective solution works great to protect the glossy finish of plated pieces.
