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...

My Final post on the Food Festival in the Victoria Market on Wednesday night.... The atmosphere at the market was "enhanced" by the cheerful songs and music by a group band... It was indeed a merry evening filled with music-licous folk songs in the air... . Ok, how to find four seats in this crowd.... hmmmm.......

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven.... Even when they were in the baking process... they look good, aren't they? LOL...  I was so happy just by looking at the mini egg cakes in the tray....  And after they were let out... my heart sank....  The minute I took them out from the tray, I knew... Hard at the top...  Tak Jadi = Failed.... Now come to t

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
