Nom Nom Nom

Have been craving for Chili Crabs since the start of my pregnancy. If I recalled correctly, I only ate twice during my pregnancy and they were really miserable amount of crabs. My mum would yell at me if I were to get another servings cause she said it's not really good to take so much crabs.

Well, well well since I'm now into the Advance stage of my pregnancy and might be popping anytime, she allowed me to feast onto them, otherwise I doubt I'll get any chance unless I can diligently wait till I finished my confinement month.

So.. I went to Sheng Song Supermart with Prince Charming on Saturday hoping to grab some big claw crabs or the Singaporean way of saying... Big Gong crabs! LOL! A pity there weren't any since the staffs said they weren't given any when the crabs came in early in the morning. What I liked about the crabs in Sheng Song - They are always in fresh water! That's pretty nice isn't it, comparing to those caged crabs we see in NTUC and wet markets. Anyway, no big gong crabs so we opt for middle gong crabs. We got 3 of them and they only cost us $26!! Cheap!!

And well, it was raining cats and dogs and we had to like rush thru the rain to get a cab and the Comfort cab driver, knowing that I'm pregnant don't even want to detour back even though Prince Charming begged him. How ruthless! Take note, COMFORT CAB DRIVER okay! I've got countless bad experiences with Comfort or Citi cab drivers. I think the company really needs to look into their Cab drivers attitude!

Anyway, rushed back home, blended the ingredients and here comes my crabs with of course, my fried mantous! Yummy!! The crab recipe was taken from SBS website.

Nom-ing session starts!!!
I couldn't resist myself from the Fried Mantous and took a bite before Prince Charming could snapped this pic! I think he don't even know that one of the mantou was bitten off a portion! Muahahahhahahaaha!
The claws! Well, though they were not the size we wanted but they still taste nice.. And actually, I had a hard time bitting the shell off cause... I don't have a seafood cracker at home! I think I nearly chipped off one of my tooth and had to get Prince Charming to do the tough job while I sit back and enjoy my crabs! :D

lol! We don't have seafood crackers either and my hubbs likes crab too! We bough one (medium) crab (they are quite large in UK) and I was not careful when I choose him as I discovered he'd been in a fight and only had ONE claw! Ok, hubbs eat that I like the meaty upper arm as I call them! We didn't chance using our teeth but I have some good strong kitchen scissors where there is a special bit in the middle that is used to open bottles. We used that to crush the shells! I have since bought some nut-crackers to do the job but am not eating much shellfish at the moment.

This design is wicked! You definitely know how to keep a reader amused.
Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to
start my own blog (well, almost...HaHa!) Great job. I really loved what
you had to say, and more than that, how you presented
it. Too cool!
