    The writer is very smart for figuring out that you can make fake bamboo shoots like that. But i have to ask the quetion, where’s the money?

    This article is bullcrap. Do yourself a favour and go check out the price of real bamboo shoots at your local supermarket, then consider who would go through all this trouble, and cost, to fake something that’s so cheap!
