Geylang is perhaps regarded by most locals as the epicentre of Singapore's flesh trade - dirty spas, seedy brothels, less than legal prostitution rackets and whatnot abound. Then again initiated gluttons will have you duly educated about a supper scene thriving amidst one festering mix of sex, drugs and sleaze.

Kermit's distant cousins harvested, skinned and dismembered, then cooked in a multitude of ways: kung pao, boiled, stir-fried, herbed up....you name it.
