Fishing Village Called Boddam For Crabs and Lobsters

SATURDAY MORNING...

We set out on a short trip to Boddam, a coastal village, half an hour north from Aberdeen.  It is a small fishing village and Aaron used to get his fresh seafood from a fisherman named John.  The night before Aaron called him to reserved some crabs and lobsters. Oh yes, he enquired about the prices too.. one kilogram of crabs is 2.50 pounds (around RM14)  and one kg of lobster is around 13 pounds! (around RM70)  Ohhh... how not to buy!  We must go, I told Aaron.....

The next day, the weather was very nice... sunny all the way for our one hour day trip.  Five of us squeezed into the car the next day... bringing home around 17 crabs and 2 big lobsters for dinner that evening.  
Such a lovely weather on the highway.... 
I think I can drive too... if given a chance... LOL... 
About an hour later, we reached Boddam...
The harbour where John is waiting for us... 
ahhhh.. there he is... 
Hauling the net of crabs up to his boat....

His name for the boat is Fertility.... indeed very productive!
His assistant going down to the boat to help John.... 
16 crabs was around 14kg and he gave one free crab to go...
Total we paid was 35 pounds for 17 crabs and 2 big lobsters....
Brown Crabs... 
Aaron was most excited...

Dim Sum For Six In First Garden, Ipoh

BREAKFAST PLANS.... and we had Dim Sum this morning in First Garden.  We made the plans the night before to meet at the shop at 9am...  (A relief for me cos I had been waking up very early these days!)   Managed to get a big table for six pax, thanks to two of my friends who were there earlier than 9.  Except for the SOP procedures, it looks like business were back to normal in some areas.  We spent around an hour enjoying the below Dim Sum and we would be meeting again for lunch later!  Opppsss... it is all about eating again during this time of RMCO... (Recovery Movement Control Order) First to be served... the Dim Sum-s... And the total cost for our orders came to RM60.... Definitely a good deal... I am definitely full.... for now! LOL...
