Groomsmen Had To Drink Shots Of Live Worms And Raw Eggs In This Malaysian 'Heng Dai' Game

Wedding games can get reeeaally weird.

  • For many Chinese weddings, having the groomsmen or 'heng dai' play ridiculous door games before fetching the bride is a huge part of the day

    • Part of the Chinese wedding ritual includes the groom entourage fetching his bride from her parents home. The bridesmaids a.k.a "ji mui" would block the way and present some challenges for the groomsmen or "heng dai" before opening the door.

  • While these games are often light-hearted and all for good fun, sometimes they can get too extreme. Case in point, take a look at the photo below:

    • In a post that has since gone viral, Facebook user Quella Kong from Sibu, Sarawak, posted a series of photos and videos showcasing a stomach-churning challenge that involved downing shots filled with raw eggs and worms!

  • Oh, did we mention that the worms are actually ALIVE and MOVING?

    • To be fair, Sago Grub or Sago Worm is a delicacy among the indigenous people of Sarawak. While it's filled with nutritious values, it still requires a certain amount of bravery and guts to shove one down the throat.

  • One groomsman volunteered himself as a tribute and downed the 'protein shake'. What a brave man...

    • Although he didn't down the shot in one go, we still have to give it up to him for trying and not throwing up.

      We hope the groom threw a big feast for putting these guys through this!
