Okay, I'm sure the majority of you readers would have gone "Eeewww" the moment you read the title of my post.
I'm sorry to subject you lovely people with something quite disgusting. But alas, you have an adventurous (hmmm or not? haha you'll understand later) foodie here who loves to try new things. Soooo....
Are you ready for something out of this world?
Allow me to apologise again and warn you first. hahaa I really don't want to spoil your appetite! Especially if you are eating your lunch/dinner or thinking of having some scrumptious something something later.
Maybe I'll go into the story first... and then show the photo.
I know it's not really as bad as it sounds, but really, it's something I couldn't bear to put in my mouth. Sis and I were at this Korean supermarket and saw that yellow can of silkworm pupa. It intrigued us to no end and we kept talking about how it'll be cool to play a prank on my bro. Well we love him to bits but we were simply too bored :p So don't think that we are a pair of evil sisters who plot pranks everyday.
We did buy the can but didn't play a prank on our brother. We just couldn't bear to. Or rather, I couldn't bear to. I mean, it stinks to high heavens! And it looked really gross. I wanted to try one but decided not to in the end.
and this was the reason why:
I know, the brave ones reading this will be going 'That's it? but that's nothing! I've had worse!'....
Haha.. but well I have this thing against creepy crawlies. I don't like insects and slimey things very much. I usually am not fussy about food and would eat anything that's edible...
that (the silkworm pupa)
Insect lovers out there, I'm sorry! I am just not a fan. So there you have it. You don't have to pose that "So what's the one thing you will never eat?" question to me ever again. You know the answer!
Please can someone tell me that Koreans don't actually eat that? I was like imagining them putting it in their kimchi soup... But then it just didn't make sense.
Whatever it is, I will never waste $2.50 (ya that's what it costed. haha) on something that gross ever again. :D
I promise my next post will be delicious and FAR from gross and disgusting!
