Zac Efron wants to eat Balut!

Now this I want to see...

Zac Efron is enjoying his stay here in the Philippines and he's glad that he's here.

“I’m just excited to be here. My dad comes here a lot. Some of our close family friends are from the Philippines. I grew up going to their house eating chicken adobo and stuff like that. And then, of course, Vanessa (Hudgens) is a Filipino,”

If you can remember Cute-rs Vanessa is Zac's ex-girlfriend from their show "High School Musical".

Zac flew in a few days earlier before his Fan Conference this Friday the reason,  “I wanted to see more of the Asian culture and be exposed more to the Philippines. I really love this area. I really want to get to know it. This is like a dream come true.”

Upon his arrival last Wednesday noon he went straight to Misibis Bay Resorts to have a brief vacation. He chose that resort because he's hearing some much about it.“A lot of my friends spoke very highly of it and I think it’s an awesome place to visit.”

What struck me is his eagerness to eat balut. “I would love to [eat balut]. I saw it on TV once. I’ve always been curious. I kinda want to try it.” 

A balut is a duck embryo that is boiled and eaten in the shell. Popularly believed to be an aphrodisiac and considered a high-protein, hearty snack, balut are mostly sold by street vendors. It is commonly sold as streetfood in the Philippines. 
Personally I like eating balut, and I definitely want to see Zac eat it with eyes wide open! LOL!

Catch Zac Efron this Saturday at SM Mall of Asia Arena for his Fan Conference brought to us by Penshoppe.
