No.... didn't bring Macro Lens and the spider is already 'well cooked'...
Yes... like softshell crab from those Jap maken place.... no strange or bad smell at all. Maybe due to the garlic inside the oil... nice garlic smell.
Nice.... always wanted to try Scorpions.... in Siem Reap Cambodia, you'll find Spider, Cricket, Grasshopper... and misc water beetle...
Spider - Very Good
Cricket - so-so only
Grasshopper - so-so only

This is really more of a cultural/religious issue than an ethical one and some people may be go out to defend their fundamental beliefs. There is no right or wrong involved here.
For example, cattle are considered sacred in some religion and in the 1966, Indian Sadhus (Hindu Holymen) are shot dead in a demonstration to demand a ban on the slaughter of cattle in what will later be known as the 1966 anti-cow slaughter agitation.
so fast AVA took action alredi. Meat send for testing liao.
Colonial's mindset.. when you have nothing to eat ... you will go for dog or even human being if it is available

Actually, we have to eat anything regardless of cultural or religious reasons (except human) in order to survive when in extreme hunger where normal foods are not available.
i remember a touching story of a historical Chinese hero and another monk who sliced off their flesh (thigh or calf muscle) in order to cook it to feed it to their parents during the times of great wars and famine in ancient China..
"There are no mistakes, only lessons. Growth is a process of trials and errors."
I ever heard a phrase to chinese people, anything that with
back facing sky" "背向天" is adable I would say it's up to individual, but I only eat reared animal because I have a choice
Tried quite a bit of stuff in Korea and China, grasshopper, seahorse, silkworm, caterpillar, but maybe its the way they cook, all not nice.
Tried dog, camel, donkey as well, but it was package meat like 'braised pork cubes style" that we get in army rations. They all tasted the same (cause of cooking/packaging style again)
So far, my conclusion has been that the domesticated livestock is still the best, probably people through history have already 'taste tested' and cut down on the options to these few anyway (other than ease of rearing).
One exception for me is kangaroo. Like beef, but tender and juicy.
I actually ate in that restaurant before about 1 year back, and they already had "dog meat" on the menu at that time.
newspaper reported...... the boss very angry wanna go back.
Eat breath LIVERPOOL!!!
