Sri felt like having a little snack while watching her favourite soap on TV.
Dear Judy, it's all about context.

I can't think of any context where I'd be happy eating spiders! :D

Yes, well...it's not uncommon in some cultures.
I've never tried it myself, though.
I just saw some videos on YouTube and it doesn't look that bad.
They say it tastes like crab.

(Holy crab) mwuahahaaaa…..

Is it a thing that smaller animals (or insects) have repeating names? i.e. Butterfly = kupu-kupu

Yes, also turtle = kura-kura

How would one translate: I am happily eating spiders?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/WayangOrang

That would be something like this:
Saya dengan bahagia makan laba-laba.

Edit…:

Thank you WayangOrang, I saw this just before my lunch and I have now lost my appetite for the rest of the day. :-)
