Creepy Crawlies Crispies

One of the interesting sights at the Chiangmai Sunday Night Market is the vast array of food available there. Apart from the usual scene of hawkers dishing out hot & quick meals, I saw trays of deep-fried insects such as crickets, silkworm cocoons, grasshoppers and some other unidentifiable critters being sold as snacks. No, I didn't pop any of these stuff into my mouth, not because I think they aren't edible but because I have a deep phobia towards creepy crawly things, even if they are dead and deep-fried. And despite patiently waiting for about 5 minutes hanging around the stall hoping to see someone actually buy and eat them, no one did. What a let-down ...
