U guys think its only at hawkers? I used to work for a 5 star hotel & I tell you, I've seen some disgusting things too. This banquet waiter dropped the entire plate (fish & all) at the back lane. It was a weddding dinner & they didn't have any extra fish. So the banquet captain just brought out several small plates, scooped the fish off the floor, plated it & brought it out.
Disgusting things occur all around us, even at "branded" establishments. Put it this way lah, if you're that worried, eat at home.

Hey guys, whatever you eat please don't visit the kitchen of the restaurant.
I don't know who says this: "If it's not dirty it doesn't taste nice."

i saw from our local tv programme one day, it was about a place that sells very delicious ducks. The owner used the same gravy in the pot over and over again to boil and roast the ducks everyday. Everday, he will add more stock and ingredients into the existing contents. The ducks get more and more delicious each passing day. He only threw away the contents every new year and cleaned the pot once a year.

So you see those food recommendations by those Channel U or Channel 8...etc, don't go to the kitchen and find out the hygenie standards. (when the camera crew is coming of course they clean up lah, but any other day..... )
Not only "lor" ducks, or braised ducks. There are many dishes requiring sauces or gravy, in which the shop will use a large pot to cook it and at the end of the day, they just add more ingredients into the pot to make the next day's gravy.
Last time, in those kopi-tiam, there is a saying, "Don't throw away the coffee socks, the older the better" the older or used socks absorb the flavour of the coffee and hence it better then using brand new 'white colored' coffee socks.
There is also another kopitiam who use charcoal to toast the bread. At the end of the day, they do not put out the fire or glowing charcoal, but they spread a layer of ash on the glowing charcoal and the next day when they remove the layer of ash the charcoal is still glowing red underneath, and they just add new charcoal on top of it.
Makes me wonder abt the fire hazard posed by such a practise.

Don't think so about the pets-eating-their-own-poo-to-boost-their-immunity part. It's a condition that needs to be treated. See http://www.puppy.com.au/faq/faq.asp?q=31&g=4
