Yesterday, I had dinner with the principal and a few teachers as a "farewell", it was interesting. Seeing some of my teachers drink and getting a bit too comfortable with each other.
I got there a little late. As soon as I sat down, Korean style, I saw a pot of hot soup and a lady come to the table, yak a few words and came back with a bowl and a plate of vegies on top.
I knew we were having some sort of seafood and I'm cool with that. When the soup started to boil, the lady came back and took the dish off the bowl. Inside, there were like 3 octopus with heads about the size of my palm. The lady then proceeded to dump the octopus into the boiling pot and to my surprise, the octopus were still alive! They were grabbing and squirming around in the bowl and pot!! Omg!!!
I like octopus, but seeing it get cooked like that ruined my appetite. I didn't eat a lot of it, although surprisingly, the octopus tentacles were very tender after it was cooked.
The lady came back a little later and started to cut the octopus head, guts, brains and all, into a few pieces and the teachers started to chow down on it...that my friends...was disgusting...
Here's the video, I sound so surprised haha. I'm kinda glad they cooked it rather than eat it alive. I wanted to try live octopus, but now, not so much.
Yum yum anyone?
What's the strangest thing you've ever tried?
Going out soon, catching up later =D
