Have u eaten burung wak-wak?

An acquaintance buzzed me with this question. I was like what is that? Wak-wak?

He said that it is similar to free-range chicken but its meat is reddish in colour. It’s tough to catch it. But its meat is vavaliciously good! Even better than quail’s meat (burung puyuh-that is the rumour) And it’s nick is “burung/ayam bunian”.Err, how do I explain this? Bunian is the word to describe the child of humans and genies combined. So the chicken is from them…YIKES? Weird right? Tough to believe too.. …

I did some research, its name is actually white-breasted water hen.

To see its pic:

Fact or fiction? u decide…

After watching the celebrity’s recipe of Burung puyuh goreng berempah on Suria, (Quail’s meat fried in spices) Suddenly the craving for quail’s meat kicks in….as for wak-wak, I think before or if ever I have the chance, I need to read extra doa /supplication to eat it….
