Maggots in my rice, cacing on Malaysiakini


“Chewren….come drink maggot soup. Today I make maggot soup. Nice….Nay, see? I am eating maggots with rice.”

Crunch, crunch, crunch, chew, chew, chew, swallow. Burp…

Talking of maggots, I hate that cacing merah advertisement on Malaysiakini. Everytime I read something, I can see from the corner of my eyes, the bunch of earthworms. With those flash ads, sometime, the cacing looks like they are crawling…Ewww….my skin crawl as I am typing this.


So, you know what I do when I read Malaysiakini? I use a paper to cover up the ads so that I can concentrate on the words and not imagine the cacing crawling out of my Mac. (you guys, stop staring at my Limau Hijau, ok? I forgot to remove from dock before I took the photo)

Talking of maggots, when I was young, my neighbourhood kids and I had this crazy activity of staring at maggots eating the corpse of dead animals. Of course it stinks but kids being kids, we were so fascinated with the speed the maggots were devouring the corpse.

I also passed my days with digging for earthworms to feed our ducklings. Ducks love termites and earthworms and ducklings fed on these grow very fast due to the protein content. However, my love for earthworms ended one day when my second brother threw one male, silvery, rainbow coloured earthworm and it went into my clothes. From that day onwards, I developed phobia for anything that crawls. I cannot even stand the sight of cola gummy worms. Uwekkkk…
