Crabbing At Holy Crab, Penang

CRABBY POST...

Nowadays stay home, stay safe and ends up nothing to publish in my blog.  LOL.. What I do now is to dig back my old albums for posting here, that is what MCO, CMCO, RMCO do to me.  Traveling overseas come to a halt and the nearest interstate is only to Penang.  And with the high rise of Mr. Covid, we have to prepare ourselves for another lockdown as in March 2020.  For me I feel safer with the MCO implemented, but I am sure those in business are not going to happy about this.  

Oh, I have digressed... coming back to my old photos, these were taken in Holy Crab, Penang when we were there last year when it was still safe to move around.  This shop was just newly opened then and since I am a fan of crabs, I wanted to go and try.  I called up to make a reservation for there are limited seats, I was told.  We went at lunch time with minimal people, only two tables were occupied when we arrived at Holy Crab.
A very small shop with less than 10 tables... 
It is all about crabs.... 
This is the set menu, we chose the set with 2x crabs.... 
While waiting for the real crab, we took pictures of the fake ones... 
The set came with 1 side dish and we chose fish slices... 
The sauces for dipping... 
The real ones came out after waiting for 30 minutes or so...
Front view looks very "garang" (fierce) so I took the back view of the crab...
That is the last bit of phototaking... 
We indulged in dissembling after taking this photo... 
Oh, we were given aprons and hand gloves before serving... 
Just one cooking method, steaming crabs...
They were very fresh... 
Paying RM119 is worth the price for the freshness...

BUNS AND PIES... freshly baked with Love.... printed on a brown paper bag, delivered by her handsome son right to my doorstep!  LOL.... Saw it on Facebook, one of my friends put up the fresh curry buns she ordered.  Yours truly saw and salivated and the next thing, I have the details I needed.  During the weekdays, the Breadlady has different kinds of buns and on Saturdays, she makes shepherd pies.  Since I got the details on Friday, I quickly messaged her and ordered 5 packets!  No, I did not eat them all, I ordered for my friends too, they have the same common interest as I do.  LOL...  ' Each set of shepherd pie comes with 2 fresh buns costing RM15.   I like her packing....

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...
