Balut is a Filipino delicacy that according to tradition would give you strength and stamina. It is a semi-hatched duck’s egg that is boiled. When eaten, you crack the shell to see the yellow part together with the embryo of the duck and sometimes it is already a small duckling. It is actually a challenge to foreigners in eating Balut because it doesn’t look delectable albeit it looks ugly. But with the stamina, there are athletes who eat Balut after training in the hope that it will give them the stamina they need. Whether it is true or not, I’m sure those athletes that eat balut would gain at least the positive thinking that they have more strength and stamina with that Balut they ate.
