@Alan Part A : Script re-write

I have re-write my script after the tutorial and this is a new version which I have re-phrased it. I have look on the some references on "Watch Mojo" on youtube and it gives me the idea of how my script should be 

The Gross Facts About Asian Food

What food would you expect to eat when travelling to the East? Sushi? Roast Duck? Bubble Tea?...Or something a little different?...These are our top ten favourite gross food facts and dishes found in Asian cuisine.

Starting with…

Number 10, Birds Nest Soup. 

Birds Nest Soup is mainly eaten as a dessert, It’s been eaten in China for over 400 years. It’s known for its’ rarity and exquisite flavour, but don’t let that fool you, It’s key ingredients are swallow blood and saliva… a true delicacy.  Despite this it costs $250 per KG, it fells like jelly and looks like snot. Delicious!

Number 9 Chicken Feet

Chicken feet are amongst the most popular of foods across Asia. Each country on the continent has a different way of cooking them. In China it’s commonly served alongside a nice cold pint of beer. In Korea Chicken Feet are cooked with spicy chilli sauce and served with alcohol.  Malaysians like to add Chicken Feet to Malay curry and serve it with Paratha bread.
The juiciest parts of the feet are the skin and tendons. Mhhm.

Number 8 Blood Tofu
Blood Tofu is popular side in Hong Kong with soup. Normally made with pigs blood or ducks blood, it originated when Hong Kong meat factory owners decided they didn’t want to waste anything they could potentially sell from an animal, they collected the blood in a big pot an left it to congeal and then sold it on as a separate food product to hungry punters.

Number 7 Deer’s Tire Powder
OK… so this one is really gross. In Taiwan some native tribes believe that Deer’s Tire Powder is a miracle medication, highly prized it is particularly thought to help those who suffer with asthma. People consume It from a deer’s womb or collect it and dry it from miscarried deer foetus and grind it in to powder. Wow that’s disgusting and we’re only on number 7. Moving on…

Number 6 Blood Intestine Sausage
This is a really popular snack around Asia. In Korea they call it a sundae (but believe me it’s nothing like ice cream!) In Taiwan they stuff the intestine with peanuts and sticky rice and steam, it can then be cut up and served one slice as a time. It’s particularly good with sweet chilli sauce, soy sauce or ketchup, of course it doesn’t really matter if it is Heinz or not at this stage. It’s kinda like a hot dog only… absolutely gross.

As we reach our halfway point, congratulations if you haven’t thrown up yet. Hold on… it’s going to a get a lot more disgusting… now might be the time to grab a bowl.

Our 5th most disgusting Asian food is Balut Egg
Essentially it’s a duck embryo that had been developing for 15-18 days, normally boiled and eaten in the shell, Balut egg is a popular south eastern Asian  street snack commonly served with beer.

Number 4 Natto Beans
Traditionally a side dish in Japan it consists of soybeans fermented with Bacillus. Sometimes they’re enjoyed as a breakfast dish with rice. Mixed together with Japanese mustard, egg and green onions. It doesn’t sound too gross but these beans are certainly and acquired taste because of their strong and pungent smell. It looks like snail sludge stew.

Well we’ve nearly made it and we hope, even if your profusely vomiting, you’re enjoying our countdown of disgusting facts about Asian food.

Our 3rd place dish you could argue is sushi in it’s freshest form. After sushi is just raw fish. Similar to our third place dish Raw Octopus. Raw octopus is served cold in Korea usually lightly seasoned with sesame seeds and oil. But here’s the thing they use live baby octopi, sliced up and served immediately
 on a plate, very often the pieces will still be moving. So be careful not to loose any.

At number 2 we have Raw Spoon Worms. Also known as the Gaebul fish. Yep they are a gross as they sound. It’s kind of fish commonly referred to as the fat innkeeper fish. Korea is one of the few places in the world where you will find these fish being eaten. Once taken out of the water the fish shrinks to nearly ten times less than it’s original size. They have a chewy and slimy texture. Similar to sushi your great aunt makes.

Taking our top spot of gross Asian food is a traditional Japanese side dish called Shiokara, I know what you’re thinking it looks like brains… but it’s actually made up of various marine animals and meat in a thick brown paste that’s left to ferment together for a month, with and salt. It takes a long a  time to create and has a very powerful aftertaste.

That concludes our top ten gross dishes and facts about them concerning Asian food. We hope you enjoyed our countdown and hope you didn’t throw up too much… Doesn’t Asian have anything simple like … Chips?
