I never know that eggs should cost this much before I came here. The average is about HKD4 to 5 EACH, yes each. So half a dozen is about HKD30. When they come in specials, the lowest price I've come across is about HKD3 EACH, yes each.
Why are eggs in Australia expensive? They 'put the CHICKEN BEFORE the eggs', so they say. This pic was taken fr the bottom of an egg card board package; I almost wanna cry over the lines T_T Well, I wonder the 'cage people' in Shamshuipo HK may think this degree of stretchability a luxury ... .
Are the Australians being petty here? Then I do not know if it's petty to be KIND. I do know of a Science lunatic who has a strange imposing tendency to glorify everything 'scientific': nuclear power, the microwave, new mega-drugs, electronic gadgets ... & sure enough, evolution! I wonder how he should opine about 'store-raising' our evolutionary 'ancestors' in tight stacked-up cages, where their excreta get drained on heads to toes, only to get dried in pented-up summer heat?
New chicken brands by local farmers are renowned being 'shots-free' & a precious gem of scientific researches, but are they? A friend lives close to a chicken farm in Yuen Long HK & can tell exactly the 'vaccine' days of the year-- half a day of deafening squeaks when the actual shots are done, followed by DAYS of pungent choking smell of 'chemical' excreta.
Yeh, I know it is kinda foolish to jam my mind w/ all these sway thoughts just upon looking at the bottom of an egg box... . What is in your mind as U have your fried eggs & bacon this morning, my friend?
