Sinag Maynila's Balut Country
I learned a lot of things while watching this film...things that I probably took for granted while growing up. I know I was fond of mallards and geese when I was in my formative years in the US of A and I guess I was one of the few who came from there that love to eat balut the moment I tasted it. I was not scared to eat it and I loved to sip the soup from the shell. I didn't realize that for me to enjoy balut, lots of people are involved and the process is long and hard...probably even tedious. One of the things among many that I've learned via this movie is that ducks and geese eat snails and for me, that is a very interesting fact.
