Chen said...

I saw the deep fried worms and bugs in Bangkok street but didn't dare to try it, cos worried about the hygiene & cleanliness.. Hehhee (scared to get food poisoning mah)

Thanks for dropping by. The sago worms are crispy if they are deep fried ;)

U can eat them raw (I bet u worm, and it's not appealing to eat something squirmy & squishy :P)
Else, u can have them deep fried :P
