FM Luder said...

I'll go for either errr... dried sotong or... maybe nutrient rich dental floss =D

Seriously? I thought it might be a kind of hairy noodle =|

William said...

hahaha... FM Luder, you follow the majority! Great guess but hairy noodle? Ummm... I will start searching for it now.
ok... of course the majority is right! As anonymous said, my camera has betrayed me. So it is dried sotong or dried cuttle fish.
This sotong was plentiful during any festive season and my wife picked up one piece during the recent CNY celebration in our church. It was so stretchy and hard that I asked my wife "Are you sure it is sotong?" and took a picture of it to let you all guess.
