We Ate Sago Worms In Sibu!

This is a "Gross Post"... for those who "wince" easily, please read on and start wincing...:)

As I have mentioned in my earlier posts, Arthur Wee invited us to his house for a scrumptious dinner.  We wanted to add something exotic to our meal so Wee Kean bought these Sago Worms from the market for RM10.....he managed to convince us that once we start eating them, there would be no stopping.... lol...
Sago worms... alive and squirming... 

Arthur's wife is so kind to wash and do the cooking for us.... as long as she doesn't have to eat them, she wouldn't mind preparing them for us... thank you, Lucy..
 washes them with running tap water....
there... all clean and smelling good...
and now golden brown crunchy Worms....
next... lets start with the younger generation...
they are always more "daring" than the oldies, right?
 Fear Factor potential participants!
oh man!!!
oh gosh!!!
is it my turn now???? 
can I "disqualify" myself, please?
After much grimacing and swallowing my fear...
I took a bite!!
"Quick, quick... take a picture 
before I change my mind!!"

And hence.. that was the day I ate a worm...
come to think of it, I don't think I would again!

  15. The old literature component "Wilson The Lotus Eater" has now been replaced with

    "Claire The Worm Eater"

  16. i have to convince you with my arms and legs that it tasted good. Almost throw the whole family of worms onto Arthur's garden... Nice, peanut butter aftertaste, skin bit chewy... Next, must try biawak or crocodile meat...

  17. WK: I thought no one dare to wash and cook ma.. so put in Arthur's garden to fertilize his plants.. hahaha..

  26. I had the courage to take dog meat and even scorpions, but worms? It's also a Fear Factor challenge for me.

  27. In Sabah we call this worm - Butet. I followed my relative to hunt for this worm before. I was there when they cook it and sadly I never dare to try it, hahaha.

    You all did better than I do!


Thank you, readers!
