On a Lighter Note

On a lighter note…

We visited what I like to call the ‘projects’ in Rantau Panjang last night because I wanted to learn how to make fried noodles.  After the meal, the husband brought out a cage with an animal in it  I assumed it was a pet and commented innocently, “I didn’t know you could have pets here!”  The reply was a little disconcerting:  “No, that is barbecue tomorrow!”  I was curious, so I Googled it. This is a picture of the animal in the wild and also a coat made out of its scales (made for George III of England…this used to be an English colony). 

The animal is called a ‘pangolin' and belongs to the anteater family.  Apparently, it is a delicacy here!  I can only be thankful that we won’t be at their home tonight.
