Flower Crab Noodles

 
 Guess what's hidden underneath the crab?

Last weekend I bought a packet of Koka noodles from Jaya Jusco, it was my first time buying this brand after hearing or should I say, reading so much about it in the blogs. Out of curiosity, I cooked it for tonight's dinner. My girl was most happy for she simply loves packet noodles unlike yours truly here.

To enhance the taste of the soup, I bought one "Flower Crab" as a condiment... to my shock, one crab alone cost RM6.60! I should put it back after weighing it... LOL... but haiyah, what the heck, once awhile, it wouldn't hurt to pay a bit more to enjoy to the fullest, right?

Here it is.... my bowl of Koka noodles with Flower Crab.....
My extra plate of greens to go with the bowl of noodles!
Normally I will cook the noodles separately from the soup...
With boiled water, I soak the noodles and let it soften...
Then I rinsed it with some cold running water....
And finally, put the noodles into the boiling soup....
Well, I guess this is the most expensive bowl of noodles I ever cooked at home....
No more Flower Crab next time though the soup was amazingly sweet!

  1. Ya, i did my noodles like the way you do it, to get rid of the wax or what. Never buy flower crab cos my son is allergy to it but with the black ones, he is ok. Funny. Wow, expensive the crab. I would rather buy char sio, meat & fish balls and fried an egg.

  2. So cheap, the crabs. Can't get those sea crabs here, not laku. Everyone prefers the mud crabs but those are so so expensive. I can't afford. Sobssss!!!! :(

    1. What flavour your noodles? Use prawns, one or two enough, will also make the soup really sweet and it is much cheaper too.

    2. My girl doesn't like prawns... I bought the chicken mushroom flavour.. nothing spicy... next time just put egg and fish balls and vege...

  6. Call me jakun, I was shopping at Jusco and weighed 2 pieces of (not very big) salmon, the cost close to RM30!! I wanted to put back after weighing (and the fella already put inside the plastic bag), but malu and scared kena curse, so die die put back in my basket and paid for it..

    The soup must be very sweet and tasty, yumm yumm.. What else you put together to boil with the crab? Chicken? Ribs? If you ask me to guess what's inside the bowl, I would guess vegetables, assorted balls and pork/fish slice.. Ngam ahh?

    1. You are no Jakun.. Salmon is expensive one... but there are two types.. one is around RM49 per kilo and one is RM55 or so... not so sure of the price exactly.. I always buy the cheaper type.. in fact I bought one last week, around 6 inches long, it cost only RM7 something only... maybe you chose the expensive type. :) Never mind, die die also eat and enjoy first.. hahahaa...
      No, nothing inside the bowl except for the crabs and vegetables!

    2. Ala, hehehehe.. Ask us to guess what's underneath and now say nothing pulak.. I thought I saw something like pork/fish slices.. One bowl full of goodness, I guess you guys slurped everything dry..

  10. Your last photo of the crab, vege and noodles really look like those sold in hotels for more than Rm30. Must taste great!
    Rm6.6 for a flower crab I think is okla not super expensive. Once a while enjoy more and eat like in hotel at home.

    1. Yeah, compared to outside.. this one is definitely cheaper! :)

  11. I love all crabs whether soft shell crabs or black crabs. They are fragrant to make any soup and sauce sweeter! Lately my hands started to develop red itchy marks after eating crabs. I think old age is developing allergies for me! Sobs!

    Crabs are getting more expensive these days. Maybe we should start catching them ourselves from the swampy land.

Chinese New Year Reunion Dinner At San Jose 2022

TABLE FOR FOUR... We had our own reunion Chinese New Year dinner on Monday evening.... we made a simple one, just hot pot at home.  All we have to do is to clean the vegetables, get everything defrosted... and the hot pot boiling with a packet of seasoning.  They sell a lot of hot pot seasoning over here, from tomato soup to shrimp and chicken soup, I just threw in the whole packet of paste.  No doubt not so healthy but it is so easily done....  As usual, Chinese New Year won't be CNY without a plate of Loe Sang...  No crackers so I put in a few pieces of Tacos... LOL... Most important is the sauce....  The apricot, plum sauce and honey makes it right.... And our dishes for the evening..... We ate too much shrimps the day before so we omitted for this evening.... Simple and yet satisfying meal for our Reunion Dinner....

Cookies For Chinese New Year 2022 In San Jose

MISSING IN BLOGGING AGAIN.... this has become a norm now ever since I arrived to this continental... LOL... Now I understand the word of Full Commitment when it comes to taking care of baby... seriously, I have to be fully commited and occupied by this little cheeky fella who is now going to be his 10th month soon.  Wow... time flies, when I first came, he was just slightly over four months... that being said, it is soon time fo rme to pack my bags and leave.  LOL... My 6 months being a babysitter is soon over... and did I say I can hardly wait?  NO, NO... I love my job here and I am going to miss my baby tremendously!  I only don't miss his cries!  LOL...  OK, by the time I write this post, Chinese New Year is over, it is now the 4th day of CNY.  Two days before the Lunar New Year, my daughter-in-law and I cooperated fully and baked a few types of cookies.  Looking back at these pictures, I dare say that we did a good job... not on the cookies but at least we had a great time bond

Buffet Lunch At Baccanal Caesar Palace Hotel, Las Vegas

BUFFET LUNCH... We made reservation for a nice buffet a week before we came to Las Vegas, the buffet is one of its kind in Caesar Palace, Baccanal is the name of the restaurant.  My kids were saying that we must have at least one good and memorable meal while here in Las Vegas and they chose the seafood buffet.  It cost around $90 per pax and being Asians, sure we would be attracted to just seafood!  Alaska Crabs... hairy crabs....lobster claws..  clams etc etc...  Oh, I did not take much photos on what we ate, just too busy stuffing in and to take out the camera with dirty hands and all.  LOL.... Just the initial stage and after that, it was all about eating and eating... oh, by the way, they only allowed 90 minutes in the restaurant, but I don't think they timed anyone... LOL.. Anyway, we took that amount of time to finish our food, sipping free champayne and mocktail too.  What a scrumptious meal... from mains to desserts, I think we only had one meal done for that day itself...
