How bizarre…

Some of you may think that this looks bizarre…

Telur terubok masin 1

…but I can tell you this – that visitors from West Malaysia to Kuching would go home with boxes and boxes of this telur terubok masin (salted fish roe), other than the ikan terubok masin (salted fish) as well…even though they cost a bomb!

All you need to do is to deep fry it like fish…

…and eat it with porridge. Yum! Yum!

You may want to sprinkle chopped chillies and squeeze calamansi lime over it but that is optional…

…or you may want to make some kind of sambal to eat it with…

Soy sauce garlic and chilli

Whatever it is, I am sure most of you would much sooner eat that than these…

Sago worms

– sago worms or what the Melanaus call “see-ertt”. I’ve tried it once – it is very lemak (fat) and I thought it tasted something like buntut ayam (parson’s nose) which is something that I will never touch – no, thank you.

So, has anybody eaten any bizarre things lately? LOL!!!
