Wordless Wednesday #14: Local Puffs



bugs copy

Fried assorted bugs!They're favorite munchies by the locals here.


fried crickets

Here, come closer.
Crunchy. Salty. Spicy. They glisten, and they're rich in protein, they say. Great with beer. But locals simply pop one - or a handful - in their mouths. No fuss.

This is one occassion where I can say - we didn't eat this!

i was looking for some real puffs up and down the post but couldn't! Yeeks!

They look so appetizing (!) in the photos ... but I don't know if I will be adventurous enough to try. I tried bayawak once, it was good, but once is enough. That's the most exotic I could go, I think.

Ooooh...Yum. It can be done. I suppose if I got past my inhibitions, I would do it, too!

Hi ZJ, these do 'look good' ??
I would peel mine before popping it into my mouth. :-)
Hope your WW day was happy, thanks for peeking in on my goovey Blue car.

They look crunchy, alright. I don't know if I will try eating those, though. And maybe I might.....
