You read that right folks! According to the Hong Kong Free Press , a woman in the Guangdong province came across some unusually hard pieces of rice while having her lunch.
The woman named Cai, then examined the hard piece of rice and was shocked to find that it unrolled into a piece of paper!
The paper had been rolled perfectly in the shape of rice.
Cai told the police that the hawker she'd bought the rice from had assured her that the rice had been grown in the countryside in an 'environment friendly manner' and minus any 'pesticides'.
