    hindi ano, all you have to do is to be cautious about where you buy your beloved siopao... dapat kilala mo yung manifacturer ng siopao mo

    Well, let me share with you this funny thing I witnessed a long time ago at Ma Mon Luk's Cubao.

    I used to pass by Ma Mon Luk every morning when I went to college and I noticed na everytime I passed by their store, the door to their kitchen was always open, probably para sa mga deliveries ng food stock nila. Anyway, since I consider Ma Mon Luk's siopao to be the very best here sa 'Pinas, as I was passing by their kitchen one morning I sneaked a peek inside. And guess what I saw?

    For a kitchen that makes such good food, theirs is particularly dirty looking. Think of a butcher's stall in a wet market and you already have a clear idea of what l saw. It's that dirty, it's that dark and it's that wet. But that's not what really got my attention. As I was looking around their kitchen, I saw this cat standing on top of a wooden chopping board - like the one butchers use that looks like a tree stump - arching its back. It was alive, mind you, but I couldn't help but wonder if the cat was their pet they kept in the kitchen or...

    hmmm gawa DAW.

    when I was 12 I was about to eat siopao and my friend teased me and said that it was made of pusa, so I threw the whole thing away and never ate siopao for the next 3 years or so, until I grew out of my phobia and had my siopao at Luk Yuen...heheheh.

    Cool

    in my opinion, no. if you stop to think how hard it is to catch a stray cat, and how long it takes to rear a "tame" cat, you'd rather buy ordinary meat, right? also, it's kinda hard to kill and butcher cats. they fight and scratch, you know. talk to pre-med students about their experiences with cats.

    nabasa ko doon sa article na sa china daw ay "cats do form part of the diet"... di ba ang siopao ay luto ng mga chinese? baka naman talagang pusa ang ginagamit na karne sa siopao nila doon. hindi kaya ang mga chinese na gumagawa ng siopao dito sa pilipinas ay karne rin ng pusa minsan ang inilalagay nila?

    pero kung karne nga ng pusa yung nasa siopao na benta ng mga chinese, di ba masarap naman? so, masarap naman pala ang karne ng pusa lalo na pag ipinalaman sa siopao. so, anong problema ngayon?

    Like the article said, there's no problem naman if people eat cats. It's just that in the Philippines, we're conditioned to think of cats as pets, much like in America, kaya some people think na kadiri ang kumain ng pusa. If we grew up thinking na cats are delicacies, we wouldn't have a problem eating cat meat, much like we don't have problems eating beef and pork kasi we all know na they're supposed to be eaten, at least in our culture.

    Cool

    the qualifications change every year but...

    when i was in high school, our bio teacher told us all vertebrates were edible (most of their parts, that is) except two: buffo marinus (a poisonous toad) and a certain species of turtle whose flesh was poisonous. i suppose that inedible list has been expanded to include the poison dart frog and a newly-discovered species of bird whose feathers, skin and some internal organs are poisonous.
