When purchasing bugs can shrink your wallet

Dear reader,

Another post today to talk about Chinese medicinal herbs. In order to get a better recovery, our postnatal helper asked us to get some herbs and other ingredients for different kind of soups.

Here is one of them:
Expensive Bugs

It's a kind of herb that looks like a bug, half herb, half bug, called Cordyceps. From what I understood, it's a fungus that grew on the head of a caterpillar, killing it... :D Yummy is it?

Thing is I should have less than 200gr but it cost 3k HKD (300EUR/350USD roughly) for this small pack. Trading gold is now has been... it's time to trade herbs.
