Crabby Dinner With The Mohs

CRABBY DINNER...

Buying the crabs is easy, cooking them is a problem!!  There are seven crabs to be cleansed and cooked, that is the real problem for Reanaclaire in this small kitchen with small pots and utensils.  Eventually I have to use three different forms of cooking these messy crabs.  LOL...

I ended up baking four in the oven, one in the multi cooker and two over the gas stove!  Oh my goodness, it was real messy and I don't think I want to do that again unless someone takes over the cleaning, brushing and cooking up the crabs.  No wonder they charge more outside... LOL..

OH, I forgot to mention this... The "vampire-styled slaying" was not done by me, I could not bring myself to do it... I am only in charge of bathing them up and making them edible... LOL..
Cleaning and brushing the shells.... takes a lot of time and effort!
Especially big ones... oh yes, needs a lot of hammering too!
Ended up baking and comes out like these... 
Too much flesh and messy!!
No wonder some do not like to eat crabs... they need too much fingers on them... 
Our dinner on that night... 
Mary brought over some Greece food!
One for the album before we dig into the food!

  5. I come to this place every now and then. The LA venues are really nice, the crowd is full of regulars, and the food and drink specials are pretty good! The staff is great and really gets to know your name. Totally worth your time on any night for good food and drink.

  6. I love crabs and I don't mind the messy job of cleaning. Best of all I don't mind getting my fingers messy to enjoy eating them. You did an amazing job cooking for your guests.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
