I may not be snorting bath salts, but when I applied for this job, I told Jane that I’d do anything in the name of beauty. And I meant it.

I'm in Cambodia this week with my friend Andrea for Riverkids, an organisation that helps Cambodian children and families in danger of child abuse and sex trafficking. After a whole day of eye-opening experiences in the slums, I found myself eating a Cambodian delicacy, tarantula.

It is believed that if you eat only its legs, you will get longer and shinier hair. I know my hair is pretty lustrous already, but there's always room for improvement, right?

Warning: not for the squeamish!

Yes, while the world is in Singapore for the Chanel Cruise show, I am in Cambodia, eating tarantulas.
