Visited Sekinchan with my parents, bro, aunts and cousins yesterday =)
Mum wanted to go to Sekinchan to visit the ear deworming thing. I only heard people doing it before, but have never seen how it was done.
The trip from my place to Sekinchan took almost 2 hours. As it was a public holiday, and Sekinchan was a malay kampung area, it was jammed all the way there.
|#1 Me~ =D|
When we arrived, there were a few uncles with their kids, standing outside the door. When they saw use approaching, they asked us whether we're here to do the ear worm thing. They said they're here to do it too..
The 'treatment' was at the back portion of the house. Everyone sat around, and stuck their ear into this huge cone.
Then, when it was my turn, I really thought it would hurt, or at least tickle when the worms came out.. But, nah... Didn't feel anything.. Just felt sick from inhaling the smell of the herbs. It smelt like some burnt sesame oil and leaves.
We sat on a low chair and there was an even lower mini table placed in front of us.
The aunty there placed a hot sizzling small plate on the table, and scooped some dark, sizzling hot herbs onto the plate, and quickly covered the cone over it to trap the smoke. Then, we placed our ears over the small hole on the top of the cone.
I could hear the herbs still sizzling, like those hot-plate yee mee in restaurants, or maybe it sounded more like popcorns cooking. The sizzling sound went away after sometime.
After.... I don't know how long.. 5 or 10 minutes or so... We could finally get up to stretch our neck. Then, the aunty opened the cone for us and there it was.. Dead earworms on the piece of board... Burnt ones...
|Before the treatment.|
The board was clean..

Mine wasn't that scary. I only had 2 or 3 tiny ones on the board. My brother had more.. Even my 9 years old little coussie had more than mine!
And, i had this whole series of worms pictures in my camera, I didn't know who they belong to.. =.=
|2 cousins with their ears still stuck to the cone..|
After everything was done, we applied some powder herbs on our ears with a cotton bud.
This was really a new experience!!
I read from the web that this ear deworming thing could improve sensitive nose, and reduce toothache. I thought I would have alot of worms inside me cos I always have flu in the morning..

After the deworming thing, we went out on search for food. Everywhere was SUPER crowded. Every restaurants we went pass, they were people queuing right up to the parking lots!
So, we decided to go for a walk first before our lunch..
|My brother snapped this for me.. And he didn't tell me was hair was THIS messy!|
The board reads I Sekinchan.
But we totally don't look alike.
He's skinny and tall, but I'm short and fat.
We went to this restaurant nearby the beach. There wasn't too much people, just 3 tables waiting to be served. After ordering, we waited for half an hour but the other 3 tables still weren't served! Asked the owner, and he said there was only one chef cooking, and we would have to wait for almost another 2 hours WTF??!!
Switched restaurant. This one was also kinda crowded, but it was at least serving dishes. Waited for an hour to have our lunch. By the time our food came, it was already 3.30.
|Coconuts on a hot day~!!|
|Some vege and fried squid|
I don't know what's this. But it taste delicious~
Stir-fried with onions, dried chilies, and egg.

Yep!! That's all about my Sekinchan trip~
