Aren't insects wild lives too? Not protected?

Be more practical, get those chickens from the parks and wild boars and then the hated otters.  😆 😆 😆

Can I issue POFMA against TS for such misleading title? :D Rising food cost have nothing to do with eating insects leh, especially when those specially breed insects cost much more than normal staple food.

On the topic of legalising insect consumption, I view it as an business opportunity for some F&B owners, than enhancing food security.

For me, I am not willing to pay exotic price for something that I can find in my home, e.g. ants. :D

I will not eat these but will not stop others who will. 

The looks are frankly unappetising and the image stayed despite the powdered or processed form.

The mind refused to unsee the seen/known. 🤢

Stay safe all
