Kemaman Stuffed Crabs
A month before last Wednesday, 20th Jan, I applied for leaves to attend my eldest cousin Yen’s wedding at Kuala Terengganu. Everyone had been talking about it for years and when the day finally arrived, God aren’t we happy people!
As usual, I NEVER get enough sleep a day before I travel. It seems to be something I can’t improve on.
We had so many bags and boxes they filled the whole car booth; almost spilling to the front seats.
Half way throughout our journey, dad had an idea to pull over at the side of the road to:
Not pee… LOL!
But eat durians wtf.
I HATE Durians!
There were many types like B52 la, B this B that, the bitter one, the ‘milk powder’ one… Dad always uses the ‘milk powder’ durian flesh type to con me eat Durians, hahaha! Even dad knows I fall for cute names like that.
My brother (Eugene) loves the whole Durian fest idea; except for eating it by the road cuz he couldn’t wash his hands with soap at a proper sink.
Which explains this picture. -__________-
About 2 hours before we reach KT, we stopped by Chukai, Kemaman for this delicacy :
CHIM KUEH! (Kuih Ketam) Crab Cake??
Ey, there are 3 shops all stick together in a row, all 3 selling the same thing and all halal. But DO NOT go to any other except for TONG JUAN. Just trust me!
The former Chim Kueh picture is the not-so-good one. We already knew it from the start, but the good ones lansi only open at 6. We reached at 5.30. So how?
My brother and I had 4 each, and when we were almost done, it was 6 PM and mum had an awesome idea! I suppose you can guess what we did…..
She naughtily tapao-ed another 2 for us each to eat in the car, ROFL! So in the end I had 6 crabs. Unbelievable, eh? For an hour or so I felt so stuffed like a stuffed crab itself. I thought I could feel some District 9 toxic flowing with my blood, RAH RAH ROMA MAA~
Somehow I fell asleep with Ke$ha’s tracks pounding in my ears and when I woke up, I was so glad to see I didn’t grow claws wtf.
Reached cousin Raychelle‘s house at around 9PM and occupied her room since she is still at UK.
Sorry this is a pretty short post guys. Tho short it is, I hope I managed to share with you some fun my family & I had during a 9 hours drive and also the right stuffed crab restaurant to choose the next time you pass by Kemaman.
I’ve to go back and forth from Mont Kiara to Mines a couple of times today and most likely to end my work at 1 or 2 AM. I’ll also be working for 2 weekends… ))=
However, I’ll still try my best to update AT LEAST once every 3 days cuz I believe as long as you do your part and work hard, one day people will notice.
I really appreciate every one of you who drop by – I don’t want to sound cheesy, but I am trying to come out with a plan to thank my readers who help improve this blog from time to time together with me.
The last time I checked (a few minutes ago), this blog has an incremental of 150% readership within 1 week!
Upcoming entries are more on family, friends, and weddings. Pet lovers, I will update you on Carpet the hedgehog too. For weight watchers, I’ve got a simple diet post coming up, so stay tuned!
