I was enjoying this Peranakan kueh when I happened to look down at what I was eating. My skin began to crawl and goose bumps began popping up as I stared at the tiny little holes that went all the way through.
I then decided to look it up and post this photo of the cross section of my delicious kueh. Do have have the same reaction when you look at it? Comment ifyou do and describe how you feel. It would be interesting to know if it is different from mine.
“Trypophobia” (Greek for “boring holes” + “fear”) is the irrational fear of clustered holes!
There you have it. Now I have to live with another phobia apart from my acrophobia AND claustrophobia.
