Desserts for Girls, Under Developed Duck Embryo for Boys



Yesterday, we surprised our engaged friends with a Bridal Shower and a Stag at the same time. For the stag, the theme was UFC and the groom had to dress up like a UFC fighter with make-up on and super short shorts and paraded downtown having to do different tasks. Since he is part Filipino and his bride-to-be is Korean, the boys made him choose between Filipino or Korean in different categories and each decision had a consequence. For example, one of the categories was food and he chose "Filipino" - the consequence? Having to eat an under developed duck embryo (balut)!!!! *cringe* You can still see the head and the beak! =/ I actually used to eat this when I was little...but that was before I knew what it really was. While the boys had to do this, the girls feasted on yummy sandwiches and desserts, hehe :) 

What's your best stag/stagette story?

It's so unfair! Guys never get good food at their bachelor parties. But I guess that's what happens when guys are in charge of planning a party.

I had 2 parties, one with friends from school and one with my brothers. They were determined to lead me into trouble, but I kept my nose clean.

RYC: I'm amazed you remember that story! I just finished telling another blogger that it embarrassed me a little and you were the first person I'd shared it with--because of your "herro, my name is...." shirt. LOL

I have never heard of stags. I used to eat balut when I was young too, but the image of it became increasingly gross as I got older. =/

Amy said...

i like balut! Viets have a thing for them too but I guess the desserts are much more tempting and delish as well. lol
