    Like most of my life. Ancient history. Term was used in Olangapo city so maybe mostly there to humor the drunken sailors. After a hard night drinking, always made a few bucks winning a ballut eating contest. Definitely an aquired taste.

    It's up there with balut...a place I won't go. They do grilled chicken intestine at the inasal places next to my apartment though.

    I'll stay with the chicken. I can get both kinds, inasal and lechon meters from my doorstep.

    I almost vomit when I smell those aged chicken eggs with the developed foetus inside.

    Why are y'all maligning my beloved balut?!

    Here's a near perfect pic of one that I had some months ago.

    Re: pork sisig, I like it but don't eat much of it nowadays (genetic/ health reasons).

    @sabang - there are chicken & tofu versions of sisig in restos nowadays. I sometimes cook one of the two or mixed (chicken-tofu sisig).

    @Norton - there are monkeys (and bats) in the mountains near Subic, so it's possible that the restos/ bars there (in olden days) served monkey meat. Or they could be pulling your (soldiers') leg. Kudos to you for winning balut-eating contests!

    Cheers all.

    The wife brought Mang home the other day for me to try. It's pretty good and their sisig is delicious.

    We got our first shot of Moderna today. We were at a mall picking up my glasses and asked what's up to the vaccination people there. They said fill out a form, we sat down and a lady walked between two rows of people pushing a shopping cart with her kit injecting people. No online registration or anything, no hassle about me being a foreigner or any of that BS. We go back in 28 days.

    One might be forgiven for thinking Thailand is an organisatonal basket case even in comparison to the Philippines.

    I rather like dried durian, it kind of is close to dried banana in taste.

    Or someone very high is pushing Astra and limiting access to other vaccines. Money drives most decisions in Thailand, IMO.

    Today we had our choice of sinovac, phizer or moderna. Everyone there was in the Moderna line for their first shot. I didn't see anyone getting phizer for their first shot. Lots of people were coming in for sinovac, jab 2.

    Personally I think Thailand might just be struggling a little more with its status in the world than the Philippines is.

    So many Filipinos have travelled overseas to work over the last 40 years, and that may have broken down prejudice against the big noses.

    My two months here have left me believing that it's still flourishing in Thailand.

    I'm not bugged about it but I was at immigration today with my wife.

    Oh man.

    Maybe more tomorrow.

    I'm still processing.
