Thai chicken flu (Malaysiakini)

This news from Malaysiakini caught my attention and makes me wonder.

Malaysia has suspended imports of whole chicken and chicken parts from Thailand with immediate effect following a bird flu scare in the neighbouring country, state media reported.

Isn’t it kind of ridiculous that our country needs to import chicken from Thailand? Why can’t a country with its vast lands rear enough chicken to feed its own nation? Why do we need to rely on other countries?

Anyway, I wonder where do these imported Thai chicken go to?

    I really had no idea we had imported chicken from Thailand! Maybe for Kelantan kah?

    Maybe our chickens are for export?

    We already import rice from elsewhere, I’m not surprised about this as well. 🙂
