Flower Crabs

Today I will talk about crabs (not craps !!! although I do talk craps once in a while ...)

I like this picture. The angry crab starring at me when I took his picture.. Too angry till his eyes going to pop out ?? Hahahaa... (This crab had exopthalmos or proptosis - which means protruding eyes). Carcar, I hope u still remember those medical terminology (exopthalmos & proptosis) which I told u few weeks ago :D

Why was he angry? Of course lah.. cos he was tied up... Well, what to do? Have to tie up the claws or pinchers or whatever u call it .. or else, the crab will surely pinch me.. No joke. Don't want to take the risk :) If not, painful leh...

The smart looking crabs lining up in style.. just like the police cadets :P But have to bear in mind that these crabs cannot march cos... they walked sideways !!! ( Corrupted crabs ??? )

Final result - the yummy Flower Crabs Curry. My hubby prepared & cooked this dish all by himself ;)
