Fruit salad with a side of eyes in Malaysia

Fruit salad with a side of eyes in Malaysia


What’s a Rojak?!

Looking for some food to eat AFTER dinner, yes that’s a thing. I went to small place beside the hostel where I had my first Rojak (fruit salad). Which was also on my last day in Kuala Lumpur. It contained “normal” fruits and some “exotic” ones like the extremely delicious rose apples and the sour star fruit, all covered with a brown sauce and LOTS of sugar.

How do you like me now?

But then, I noticed a tiny eye floating in that sauce, thinking it was an insect I decided to ignore it and pushed it to the side only to start noticing more eyes. Turns out this was a fruit salad with crushed shrimp paste… for some reason.
