Revenge of the hairy crab

Ooh... the sweetness of the flesh.. paired with the soft yet rich roe that melts in your mouth...

Yes... Hairy crabs... its the season now... and I had the opportunity to try it before it was officially on sale at restaurants!

Anyway, something interesting about Hairy Crabs.

Did you know that:

Thousands of years ago, as legend has it, ancestors of the human race had already settled down to the south of the Yangtze River. In a low-lying area like this with abundant rainfall as well, floods frequently took place. Out of rivers and lakes, from time to time, came shelled creatures which were inclined to creep towards light. They were fiendish-featured with a pair of pincers and four pairs of claws. Not only did they eat grains in the paddy field, but they also attacked people with sharp pincers. Intimidated as if they were tigers and wolves, the forefathers called them the clamping pest. Since disturbance by these pests gravely impeded the farmer's harvest, people boiled them to death on a fire. The dead pests, bright red all over, piled up mountain-high, smelled delicious and appetizing. Out of curiosity, a man named Ba Jie took a pest and closely examined it. Then he broke off the shell and ate it fearlessly. It seemed that he was enjoying it, so others followed his example. Ever since then, the ancestors had no longer been afraid of the clamping pest and the once scary pest had become a household delicacy.

Better late then never...

Mid autumn might have already been over...

But this box of mooncake from Baker's cottage is better late then never!

The flavours are so outrageously new age for traditional mooncake...

Check out flavours like: Mocha Hazelnut Praline
Low Sugar Taro Yuzu, which was the nicest in my opinion!
Blueberry Blackcurrant cheese... this one was so fruity!
and Tiramisu!

Fancy paying $60,000 for an Hongbao Packet?

That is apparently the price for what seems to be a 1950s or 60s red paper packet from renowned Bak Kwa manufacturer, Bee Cheng Hiang!

Ebay never fails to amaze me with their weird range of oddities!

Parking ticket...

I had only left my car unattended for less then 2 mins at East Coast to get parking coupons from my friends when I came back to see a parking uncle issuing me a parking fine for not displaying tickets...

Why cant they have EPS at all car parks at East Coast?

Singapore claims to be a high tech country... but we are still using coupons?

Surprise surprise...

A lovely kaleidoscope of colours...
If only all surprises were that pleasant, like this specially made dessert I had at Buttercake n Cream... a fusion of hot with cold...


Turned Turtle

Was on the way to work today after picking up something wrong the supermarket... and came across this massive jam near the Woodlands Checkpoint

When I was nearer to the traffic junction, I finally saw the cause of it all: An overturned cargo trailer!
Guess the driver must be driving too fast while making a turn!

Moonstruck by Amway

Interesting packaging if you ask me...

Amway mooncakes not only with a matching carrier bag...

But also a detachable fridge magnet..
And it comes with 4 different flavours too:

Four Seasons Durian Mooncake

If you ask me, I rather eat the actual fruit then to have my mooncake fashioned with the king of fruits...
How can one every enjoy eating mooncake without prying open its thorny husks and then savouring the heavenly flesh?

Nonetheless, it still does give the traditional moocanke some new life!

Now I know my ABC...

Looks like someone in office does not know their ABC./..
Not sure whether I should laugh out loud or be pissed...

Dim Sum @ Fisherman's Wharf

Had Dim Sum for brunch with my family today at Fisherman's Wharf which is located at Japanese Garden Road...

A familliar place to me, cos I remembered when I was growing up, there used to be a Japanese and Dim sum restaurant there called CN West or something...

Anyway, the restaurant, Fisherman's Wharf, is having a promotion now, one serving of dim sum costs just $1.90 per plate...
What an incredible price...
Except that the food was a little lack lustre compared to better known counterparts like Crystal Jade or even Red Star!

Going for a meeting?

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of faceVsion Technology USA. All opinions are 100% mine.

In this era, going for a meeting does not mean having to leave your office physically and going to another venue just for a meeting. Using your webcam to have a video conference session is not only cost effective, but also saves your time!

While high end brand names/systems like Polycom, Tandberg, and Radvision might cost relatively more to install and use, there is now a cost effective solution - faceVsion Technology USA.

Bearing in mind that most consumer graded HD webcams, such as Microsoft Cinema and Logitech Pro 9000, sold in the market cannot stream high resolution quality over Internet. Users cannot achieve HD quality internet video calls using these models. Their HD quality can only be accomplished locally.

Not to worry! Did you know that there is a H.264 hardware encoder and decoder chip set built in FV Express Combo? This chipset is the key to accomplish true HD quality video calls over Internet with low system requirement and bandwidth requirement.
What’s more with Google Gmail account and FV Express Combo, you can make HD video calls over the Internet. Your Google Gmail contact list can be automatically synchronized to your HD video conferencing contact list.

So, be amazed by the wonders of the FV Express Combo product image, check out the on-going promotion with $10 off any purchase, using the promo code of FVTBTS2 while checkout. The promotion ends 09/30/’10. Note: FV Express Combo is available through faceVision on line store and other value added partners.
