Fear Factor - Japan

I received a short video from Mr and Mrs Pitt. It was taken during one of their Japanese meals while they were on vacation in Japan itself. When I saw it, I could not believe that Mrs Pitt actually had the guts to do what she did. So, I really have to blog about it as I'm so proud of her! I captured two shots of the video that pretty much says it all.
In the video, those tiny fishes are alive and swimming about frenzily. When I first saw it on screen, I was taken aback that such things were served to customers, I guess not in Malaysia but it must be common in Japan. What followed was even more shocking to me. It was seeing my dear Mrs Pitt drinking it all up!!! Though she did squirmed in her chair while swallowing it and continued for the next few seconds after, she nevertheless drank it all in one go! I didn't know you had that in you!I guess once it awhile we have to do something like this as to make our journey in life more memorable (like me, eating salted cooked worms in Kunming. Which to my surprise is a lot tastier than how they looked, they actually tasted like cheese!!!)
Well, Mrs Pitt! I will never look at you the same way again. I'm impressed indeed ... I'm not worthy! Ha Ha Ha ... The video didn't show whether Mr Pitt and Zahara drank the fishes too though, I wonder if they did.

mrs. pitt said...
