Strangest food eaten so far: Desert moss (very tastey has a mushroom type taste),

Chicken feet - the whole bird is cooked and put on a platter- also black in colour not really sure why?

Bird’s nest (which is the reguratation from birds which people eat….)

Oh ya Pidgeons also a delicacy, not sure why it is such a treat for people since there are so many around. The birds are sooo small it doesn’t even look like they have any meat on them.

    So I talked to Rita, a chinese girl who works next to me…
    Bird’s nest is good for the skin. Also good for you if you eat it before giving birth as well. Most chinese women do.
    it’s considered a delicacy, because hard to get. Sort of like Escargot or fish eggs.
    People in South East are crazy about it.
