At the end of the exhibition, there were some booths outside. One of which Xav went was a booth showcasing of some insects which has medicinal properties and were used in TCM presciptions.
We saw dried scorpions, dried centipedes, wingless cockroaches and bamboo bees. The fearless Xav happily went to have a feel of touching them and smelling each individual to find out which insect has the strongest smell lingering even though it has been sun dried.
Well, for me, such a shame to say that I quietly moved to one side when I saw Xav picked up the wingless cockroach, wishing silently that he does not come to me with it. Yes, it may be dead but I can't help but feeling fearful of something which is harmless *laughs*
