The longest three seconds of my life
I had to confront my phobias when I walked into Mr Jimmy Chen's farm and saw tubs of creepy crawlies.
My reaction? Goosebumps everywhere.
And to make my life a little more miserable, my editors dared me to pick up a handful of worms.
Then, I was told to leave them in my hands for three seconds.
But I wasn't going to bow out of the challenge - no matter how freaked out I was.
When I asked Mr Chen if the worms bite, he turns around with a cheeky smile and says: "Yes, but don't worry, it's not that painful."
I swear my eyes widened enough for my eyeballs to pop out of their sockets.
I braced myself, clenched my jaw and dipped my hands into the tub of worms.
It was the longest three seconds of my life.
Most of the worms that I scooped up fell right through my fingers because my fingers were stiffly spread wide open.
Nonetheless, I did it and I'm proud of it.
But that doesn't change the fact that I'm never touching worms again.
