  1. I think I’m game on most of the foods featured above except for the Chinese ones. I’m not starting a flame and it’s not being racist but there is just something with their fascination with disgusting foods that makes me cringe and ask like “what are they thinking?”. That’s just me though and I don’t like the looks of that balut thingy too.
