I was driving in Kelantan recently on the way to a north Malaysian town called Jeli when I noticed some unusual items being sold at the roadside.
On closer inspection they turned out to be eels, still alive and writhing around in plastic bags. I believe Ikan Keli translates as catfish but they looked like eels to me. Maybe the blue plastic container at the foot of the photo is for catfish.
The vendor told me that he caught the eels in the lake next to the road.
He should consider opening a Japanese grilled eel restaurant here to improve his profit margins.
Later the same day I spotted another slithery thing draped over a milestone.
Presumably this unfortunate snake (python perhaps?) had been run over while trying to cross the road.
Not something you see every day, even in Malaysia!
