Before moving on from my coverage of the Perhentian Islands, I need to address one more thing: though there were poisonous spiders and monitor lizards aplenty, the issue of hairy satay was one that rose to prominence as the weeks went by.
The beef satay at Senja Bay Resort was absolutely delicious, and at 10RM (about $2.95) for 10 sticks, it was a great deal. But there was one big problem: it was hairy.
While one might normally stop eating a hairy stick of meat, my dinner group and I rationalized as follows:
- the chicken satay was not hairy, so clearly it wasn't actual hair falling into the food while it was being prepared;
- the hair was less "hair" per se, but rather something fibrous, like fishing line;
- it still tasted good - really really good; and
- we were not getting sick
