Turtle / Terrapin

   Posted by: CK Lam   in uncategorized

Chinese believed that turtles have medical values when cooked with Chinese herbs to improve one’s health. Is it just a myth or is it true? These photos were taken in Pulau Tikus Market.

Most of this turtles end up in the cooking pot. One quite popular dish is the turtle soup ?? . It is a Chinese delicacy known for its rich herbal taste. The meat, skin and innards of the turtle are used in the soup.

This type of species is getting rare and vanishing each passing day. We should strongly save them from extinction by not consuming them. When I left the market, these turtles were not sold yet. Sad to say, they will be sold, slaughtered and cooked very soon ….what a shame!!!

It’s quite famous in Johor and Singapore. Watch in TV, but I think I will not want to try.
