Back in 2014, Malaysia saw an invasion of these giant moths.
|A friendly bigass moth landed on my back!|
The Lyssa Zampa tropical moth aka Laos brown butterfly has a wingspan of about 6 inches!
A batter of rice flour is steamed over a piece of cloth. When the noodle sheet sets, it is peeled off the cloth and rolled with a filling of minced prawn and roast pork. The noodle roll is then sliced and topped with a sweetened soy sauce, fried shallots, sesame seeds and chili oil.
The BBC reported that thousands of these gargantuan creatures have swarmed cities in Malaysia, and even disrupted a national football match!
My go-to snack
|Poppadam — Indian flatbread|
The hubs had his first shot. I have not been called up yet.

Away From The Blue
The Frangipani are so beautiful. The moths! Eeek! We had an issue with giant monarch butterflies several years ago, there were so many they were clogging the engines on planes! I love butterflies but we'd drive down the road and they would be all over our car, it was sad. I invite you to stop by and share your post at the TFT blog hop Hugs!ReplyDelete
some of your pictures whet my appetite -
some astonish me. I have never seen butterflies like this, nor have I heard of this "invasion". Fascinating!
All the best from Austria,
Hi Veronica :) I could definitely go for some of those noodle rolls right now, they look so delicious! The frangipani flowers are really pretty! :)ReplyDelete

Wow, so much fun and yummy stuff ... rice noodle roll had me until the Chili oil ... I suspect that is mighty hot and I can take hot, but not mighty hot :)ReplyDelete
Your balcony view is dazzling and I couldn't agree more ... it is surely a Bigass moth. Can't even imagine ... and this is supposed to be miniature week, but your moth takes 1st place as far as I am concerned. Glad you decided to join us at Rain's ... we have fun and I hope you will come again and again.

Wish I had tasted some good chee cheong fun when I was in Penang and KL in Jan last year. Our party all got sick and did not have appetites for anything. As a result, we all came home losing 5-10 lbs, believe it or not!ReplyDelete
