Pinoy OFW Got Surprised After He Found ‘Duckling’ Inside Box of “Balut”

BALUT STORY – A Pinoy OFW named Gio Miranda goes viral online after he purchased a tray of ‘balut’ but received a duckling.

Balut is a fertilized developing egg embryo that is boiled and eaten from the shell. It is commonly sold as street food in South China and Southeast Asian countries including the Philippines.

A Facebook user named Gio Miranda has shared the video footage of himself opening the box of ‘Balut’ he purchased. The video immediately circulates online after it was posted on social media and elicits comments from the netizens.

Miranda narrated that he craved ‘Balut’ after working in the Middle East for three years. He asked his friends who went to the Philippines for a vacation to bring ‘Balut’ for him. Gio’s friends grant his request and buy a tray of ‘balut’.

In the video, the Pinoy OFW unboxed the ‘balut’ but he was surprised after the duckling comes out. The duckling came from one of 15 pieces of ‘balut’ inside the box that arrived last May 27, 2022 (Friday).

“Nagpasuyo ako sa kanya, sabi ko yung fresh na balot. Hindi pa nilaga para hindi mag-iba yung lasa,” Gio said.

The latter immediately posted the video on TikTok and immediately garnered millions of views.

Gio who is working as a salesman for an automotive company in Kuwait adopted and takes good care of the duckling.
