    Now thats a crab!!!

    I was looking through photo's of when Ning first arrived in Australia for another thread and found this one.

    Every time we went for seafood in LOS Ning would order the blue crab which looks like a miniature mud crab. Well I took her to the seafood markets here in Australia and you should have seen her eyes light up when she saw this puppy in the tank.

    I think it took her about 3 hours to pick out all the crab meat into a big pile and then ate it with sweet chili sauce.

    Pitty the price per kilo wasn't the same as in LOS as it cost me about 3000Bt or A$90

    Crispy,
    These days not many crabs in the Bohle, Croc's have finished them 555
    It is a real bother to th fishermen as the croc's have really increased in size and numbers. A couple have based themselves around the boat ramp and had to be caught and moved by rangers.
    "Of course you love me darling, I handsome man 55555"

    Being QLD I'd guess it's a buck.

    Ning would see that crap, look at me, turn her head sideways, flash her eyelashes quickly at me, and say please baby!!!!

    She would probably eat it all. One day we went to Kingsley's crab and steak house on the Brisbane river and she ordered the Alaskan King Crab. she spent two hours picking out the meat into a large pile and then commenced eating it all.
