Today, I will share with you all on my other weird eating habits so that you can
#1 - I am terrified of prawn's head
Even searching and posting this picture up brings me the chill. Brrrrrrrr....
When I was very young, I only eat prawns if somebody has already removed the heads for me. Else, no no no no. Not touching it with a 10 feet pole.
I'd rather eat white rice with soy sauce :P
Why am I so very terrified of prawn's head? I guess maybe it's because of its innocent looking eyes and the mouth...
Seriously... I can feel my hairs tingling up just thinking about this prawn heads... And it doesn't help after watching the "District 9" movie with the aliens looking really a lot like prawns... :(
#2 - And yes, no prawn legs too...
I mean... why doesn't anyone else share the same sentiment with me in finding the grossness of prawn's legs?
Its like such a small creature and yet it has so many legs and it looks like caterpillars (oh don't get me started on this as well... No, I don't eat caterpillars, but yes, I am also terrified of them as well...) So again, unless its legs has been removed, I will not touch it as well...
Luckily, nowadays, if the prawns are cooked and presented real nice, I have more courage to rip off and remove the heads and legs myself.
Which is why I love eating tempura instead! :D
#3 - I hate blood in meat
The meat I am eating (chicken or fish for example) must be cooked until there is no trace of blood.
Yes, if this is the case, what about steak? Ermm...
I don't eat steak.
I don't do beef.
I don't do lamb either.
Yes, I am really really really that weird... and yes, if there ever was any audition for Vampire Idol, I'd fail miserably in it... I think maybe its because of the perception that blood = raw (yes, yes, I don't even do sashimi) so raw =
#4 - No animals' internal organs please...
Liver, hearts, stomachs, whatever they have inside an animal.. please please don't serve it to me. No matter how cooked and no blood it is, no no no. Chinese people have dishes served with internal organs of animals from cow, chicken, pig etc...
#5 - I don't do abnormal food
My meaning of normal food means chicken, fish, vegetables etc. You know, things that people would normally eat. Abnormal means, frogs, snakes, tortoises, dogs, monkeys, insects, etc etc.
I remembered when I was in my early teens, we had a Chinese New Year dinner with my dad's younger brother and his family. And I had this crunchy tangy meat. And I later found out it was frog meat after we reached home that night.
It did taste like chicken meat but errmm... ignorance is bliss and I'd prefer not to be told / know that I'm eating abnormal stuff...
#6 - The eggs I eat MUST be thoroughly cooked!
I love eating eggs! Hard boiled style, fried egg style, mashed and served in sandwich style...
If I am being served with this dish 1 year ago... I can guarantee you, I will only eat the bread and maybe the sides of the eggs. I mean, look at that runny eggs!! The yolk and the white jelly-like texture of the eggs looks raw to me! Gross... Nowadays, I'd just cut off or removed the yolk and/or the whitish jelly-like portion and pass it to hubby to eat.
Okie... I guess that's about all I can think of now. I am already having a headache just looking at all this gross foods... Call me a weirdo but I call it having good food/eating ethiques :P
So, do you have any weird eating habits?
