or technically speaking, half-hatched duck eggs. Its usually eaten in countries like Vietnam, the Philippines, Cambodia, so on.  I remember watching a documentary on this rather unexpected preparation of eggs a while ago.  Here is some more information, if you are as curious as I am.

Also, here is a rather quirky site where they are trying their best to convince people of how cool ‘balut’ is. Nice try guys.  I’ll stick with my sunny-side up breakfast eggs, thanks.

Bon Appetit!

At least we are not Dubai

You know,  I appreciate what George Fulton ( of  ‘George Ka Pakistan’ fame) is trying to say here, but he comes off as a narrow-minded, chest-beating nationalist. Not cool.

Even if one attempts to understand Fulton’s brand of enthusiasm for Pakistan, he has devoted but two lines to illustrating the positive aspects, if even that.

There has to be a way to highlight how one feels about the country without making harsh, blanket statements about another country slash culture (in this case, the Emirates  and Dubai).
