What did I do before Wikipedia?

I love Wikipedia. I love it to the point where if I'm bored, I will just click "random article" on the site and learn about things that I'd never even heard of. It's amazing. It seriously has everything on there.

Today, I decided to learn what the heck is in all that Singaporean food that I've been so scared to eat. Try it! Type in "Singaporean cuisine" and read for yourself. I've decided that some of it might not be so bad, but some of it is still horrifying.

For example, Pig Organ soup (which is a delicacy) is just as horrifying as it sounds. It contains pig intestines, stomach, blood cubes, pork slices and salted vegetables. Now, you'd think one of the richest countries in the world could make cuisine that didn't seem like it came from the scrap pile at a slaughter house. They're freaking insane. I will never touch that crap.

Things that I've decided to try however aren't bad at all. Kaya toast, roti prata and satay are all next on the list. They sound pretty harmless and I can understand what the ingredients are.

Here's to my open mind when I go back to Asia.

I'm still not eating durian, people. So don't even ask.

Umm, the word "blood cube" made me dry heave. Seriously, I think I tasted a little vomit in the back of my mouth.
