Malaysian Woman Hatches Balut Egg Out of Curiosity, Gets a Beautiful Duck
A Malaysian woman is winning the hearts of many netizens for hatching and raising a duckling from the balut she got around two years ago.
The heartwarming story started around two years ago when Erica Lim bought a balut – a developing bird embryo dish that is a popular delicacy in many Southeast Asian countries like Cambodia, Thailand, and Philippines to name a few – out of impulse from a Vietnamese restaurant in Puchong, Malaysia, according to Bored Panda.
Curious about what might happen, Lim decided to hatch the balut by putting the aborted egg inside a makeshift incubator she made from a styrofoam box and heated lamps.
After two weeks of caring, the egg finally hatched.
