I was a contestant in Maharlika’s first annual Balut Contest last weekend. The embryos seemed to be a little more developed than the ones I have had at Maharlika.
Originally I entered the contest just to eat free balut — I have never been a very fast eater. But when el momento de la verdad arrived, something came over me and I really wanted to win!
In five minutes I was able to shove 11 baluts down my throat. I almost choked a couple of times. It seemed like the guy next to me, Wayne Algenio, (the guy who won) wasn’t even chewing them! He ate 18!
