Eating too much duck?

This is where our community discusses almost anything! While we're mainly a Cambodia expat discussion forum and talk about expat life here, we debate about almost everything. Even if you're a tourist passing through Southeast Asia and want to connect with expatriates living and working in Cambodia, this is the first section of our site that you should check out. Our members start their own discussions or post links to other blogs and/or news articles they find interesting and want to chat about. So join in the fun and start new topics, or feel free to comment on anything our community members have already started! We also have some Khmer members here as well, but English is the main language used on CEO. You're welcome to have a look around, and if you decide you want to participate, you can become a part our international expat community by signing up for a free account.

You sure the missus doesn't just want some of that duck? 😁
Mangosteens do have an unusual effect on insulin levels so there is actually some basis to this one
Possibly….
In the same way as lightning is electricity, but known casually as fire

And fire can be quenched by sand?

No, not in the same way. Look it up.

Way back I was in this bar in the central area and the waitresses were trying to give us this "If you eat mangosteens and sugar you die!" stuff so we hopped on his dirt bike and belted to the night fruit stalls near Olympic and back with lots of mangosteens. We requested a bowl of sugar and happily munched on spoonfuls of sugar and lots of fruit, to the horror of the girls. I didn't die or feel at all sick but felt a bit rough the next day. I blamed that more on the 20 drinks than the fruit. 8-)
Silence, exile, and cunning.

Anyway, Mrs Clutch says it's not good to eat too much duck. Especially so if one is sick or not well. She said this was common knowledge in khmer culture.

So, according to her, it's best to eat sparingly.

Just curious, has anybody else heard about this?
Where you getting the duck from? There is a Chinaman that roasts the best Cantonese duck I've ever had, I grab a $10 tray that about twice a week. Been meaning to post his info but I keep forgetting.
