Crabs On Delivery

WE SIMPLY LOVE CRABS... and through my neighbour, I got to know that one shop sells fresh seafood.  Fresh, nice and cheaper than in the market and they only come in around 3pm in the afternoon.  They have fish, squids, sea prawns, clams, cockles and I usually buy clams from them.  Each kilo is RM14, the longish clams aka lala.... 

On this particular evening, I ordered Crabs from this shop.  If I know how to slaughter them, I would have taken them home.  Each kilo is only RM55 if I buy them but since I have the fear of jabbing their heart, I told the owner to cook them instead.  I ordered 3kg of crabs for RM85 per kg and to be cooked into two different flavours, sweet and sour crabs and "kam heong" style (with basil and chilies).... 

Six of us had a crabby dinner that evening... we couldn't finished the spicy ones but we managed to on the following day.

Each pot holds 1 1/2 kg of crabs...
Thank goodness these are not spicy....
Whereas these are super hot.....
But very tasty and fragrant....
Curry chicken bun..... 
Our spicy dinner for the night.... 



  1. I love to eat crabs but too lazy to eat them nowadays. Too much effort and spend too much time. It must be fun for all of you to slowly savour the crabs at home while chatting and having a good time catching up with each other.

  2. So yummy! I love crabby dinner like this. I can easily finish 1 kg of crabs.

  3. So cheap! Here, crabs are RM60 a kilo, big but not too big. The really big ones go up to RM80.00 a kg. I love crabs but seldom eat, once in a blue moon, ok lah!

  4. Wow! I bet the crab lovers are drooling over this post! Me I am too lazy to get my hands dirty to eat crabs. So I avoid them. LOL!

  5. Wow!! Nice feast. I would love all. Long time I didn't eat crabs too. I think the last time was in December. My hubby bought some and cook them. Steamed and stir fried in egg or Kam being, both okay with me.

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....

Three Hours City Tour At Ensenada, Mexico

A THREE HOURS CITY TOUR when we embarked in Mexico on the second morning.   My sister booked the three hours city tour in Ensenada, Mexico, a van came to pick us up from the port.  Ensenada is the border of Mexico and it reminds me of Hatyai, a border town too between Malaysia and Thailand.  We were taken to a shopping area where we must haggle for the goods.  LOL.. Yes, something common in my own country... Anyway, we did not buy anything for ourselves... just a wooden handmade truck for my grandson which cost $8usd.   Nothing much to shout about on this three hours excursion, I was so sleepy on the way back to the ship that I dozed off and only awaken when we were driven through the town.  All in all, I just wanted to step onto Mexican soil and I would give this a miss if I were to go on this Mexico cruise again.  LOL... At the open area shopping walking towards the Blowhole... This is La Bufadora Blowhole, an amazing natural marine geyser that is capable of shooting water over 60 fe
