“Snack”, anyone? Yum..

What? Snake and Snack does sound quite similar ler. And we do have snake meat here, RM30 per KG, tho I have not eaten before and it’s very rare too. It’s available only when they happened to encounter it in their farms or resident areas.

I really misheard when I was hanging out with Maru and Rokku the other day in KL. They were so shocked. Hahah.

Okay. I think I’m scaring my friends away from visiting me. Hahah

By the way, how adventurous are you in food? What’s the most adventurous/exotic you have tried or going to try?

For me, so far I have tried fried crickets, fried pupae, fried mealworm, pig brains, ants egg in Thailand. I wanted to try Sago worms badly. I heard it’s good and as a Sarawakian, I must at least try once. XD


Honestly, beside exotic food, we do have so called normal food and unique one too. hahah don’t be scared. You can check out this list I made. I think useful for anyone who is coming to Kuching. What’s so interesting about our food is it is totally different from those Peninsular.

You are trapped in a room for days without food and these are the two food offered.

So Snake or “Snack”?  If you have to choose one.  XD

    I only eat “Normal” food. Do not dare to eat those bugs when I was in Myanmar. They say will Lao Sai…><

    I want to try snake!! Hehe…

    But I definitely don’t want sago worms. Especially since they are eaten alive…so geli, they can move in your mouth!

    I’ve eaten snails (escargots) and sheep’s brain (haggis) before, so I think I can be considered quite adventurous. But I don’t want to eat bugs…somehow I associate them with dirtiness.

      no need to eat raw also can.

      sago worm is clean that’s why it’s famous heheeh

    Fried sago worm is nice. Crispy on the outside, milky in the inside. Just chew on it’s body & avoid the head.
    *Warning: If you have high blood cholesterol, don’t dare more than 1. Not encourage to eat often. It’s actually found & sold here in Klang Valley. Heard, there are some local supplies from some local plantations.

    Never been to Sabah, never been overseas LOL. Would def. love to visit the place esp. to try the “fermented fish dishes” 🙂 & “only in Sabah/Sarawak” fruits.

    The most adventurous food I’ve ate are…
    Bats, Wild Deer, Raw Octopus, Wildboar, Ostrich, Cactus
    (these are pretty common in some countries)

    Tasted insects before, but don’t fancy it’s taste or smell. Those black ants are actually pretty dangerous esp. it’s head part which contains some toxin chemicals usually meant to numb it’s victim from it’s bite.

      cactus sounds interesting to me 😀 hohoho

      about the Borneo fruits. most of them are sour XD
      but some very unique in texture.

      woah.. i heard those white/green ants taste nice like butter.

    I have eaten fried crickets and maggots in Thailand and ate ‘Balut’ in Philippines. Balut was actually nice except when you bite on the foetus. Bleargh!

    As for your game, I would rather eat the snake, it looks good. =P

    • July 29, 2013 - 11:22 pm | Permalink

      i posted the wrong picture.
      now everyone choose snake. hahaha

      woahh you’re adventurous! 😀
