Favorite thing: Did you know most of the Western people has a weak immune system after eating out of cages. And because we stopped eating natural food like vegetables and meat grown in the wild, including insects! Our Western civilization is horrifying for eating grasshoppers, cockroaches, scorpions ... oh nooh, bug dishes are not at all that favourites with tourists visiting Bangkok. We get sick when just watching Thai people eating roasted, sugared mealworms, scorpion-soup and deep fried cockroaches. Seen on TV I always have to visit these street-stalls when going for a walk on a market, along the busy boulevard downtown ... where grasshoppers are tiptop today!

Fondest memory: *LOL*, mjammie ... eating a bug isn't that bad, is it? Just the mass of these creepy creatures on a plate worries us, does it? I had some cicades, I had some worms once, and my grandmother used to be so good in preparing some other dishes I forgot the exact name. Walking in Pattaya and Bangkok I always am looking for the insects vendor carts on the market, even it still gives me the creeps! Nope,... I never had a grasshopper. Still ... it always will stay in my memory, heeheehhh
