I walked around e-Mart this morning and confirmed that there is no whole "standard" chicken.
ok, chicken heads at RM4.50 (90 pence) per kg. In developed countries, this is for making animal feeds or pet food!
Fine, no chicken, I will look for alternative cheap protein. I bought 4 of these "monk fish" or 和尚鱼 for RM10, ie, at RM5/kg. Many won't eat this fish also as the skin is thick. But more importantly, the body has a row of "dots" which make them looking like the spot on the head of monk! So, I called it "monk fish".
Update 28-Sept-2011: Reported in newspaper today that the local poultry farmer are giving up their chicken farm business!
