Crab Crab Crab, Yummy Crab!

Papa took me to the morning wet market at Kepong and I saw someone selling live mud crabs. I was fascinated with the crabs which looks like some alien from outer space. Papa bought 1 kg of crab for RM12 from the vendor and I happily held on to my so called 'pets'. Yay!

I love looking at the crab crawling sideways. Papa put one in a clear container for me to look at.

Then, papa showed me the nasty pincers on the crab! According to papa, this is a male crab. Male crab has narrow abdomen or apron. Female crab has wider and round abdomen.

When I woke up from my afternoon nap, I found that papa has already cooked my 'pet crabs'! Waaaaaaaaa! They turned bright red! Actually, they tasted very nice! LOL!
