Photowalk in Glodok: Not for the faint-hearted!

Spoiler: In case you like eating all the stuff that moves, but are grossed out by how they land on your plate, you might want to skip these photos. I was trying to conquer my fear by getting up close, and cheated with the zoom lens a bit! So here are some of the exciting goods on offer:
