      Jack Apolo maybe but it has too much fat that clog up the arteries, well I warn many but to each his own, but these sicknesses that it causes are dreadful and painful. Best to you.

    Well I am not a vegan...but sometimes presentation matters...if this would have been shown as prepared in small portions maybe it would have been eye soothing... but those eyes, those painful condition can’t be ignored. Although I know everything non-veg items do have killing procedure, but it’s the presentation as I said...

    I am a meat eater I don't visit Vegan chats and post "This is nasty" or "Yuck! veggies are boring" what a bunch of morons for those who post anti-meat comments. GTFOH! if you don't like meat, don't eat meat, don't eat pork, are Vegan or Muslim because some don't give a sh*t about your anti-meat rants. You're still going to get some type of disease and die anyway, stop telling people what to eat and worry about what you eat.

    I'm a Filipino and we also have lechon in our country. But it is way different. We stitch the open belly shut and pin some nails all over the body before roasting it to flaming charcoal. Or we put some prawns or crabs on the belly before stitching it shut.

    Well to be perfectly honest in my humble opinion of course without offending anyone who thinks differently from my point of view but also looking into this matter in a different perspective and without being condemning of one’s views and trying to make it objectified and by considering each and everyone’s valid opinion. I honestly believe that this looks horrible.
