Crab-eating Skill Being Put at Test!

Hello! Mommy's back and sort of 'free' from the hustle and bustle of day-to-day office work and the MQA accreditation renewal of the programme that Mommy is responsible for. These things had been keeping Mommy busy and stressed up since last month till yesterday. So now Mommy can blog (and bloghop) again with a clear mind. ^-^

This is an outdated post dating back to 2nd January 2011. It was Sunday and as usual was our family outing day. We went to Telok Gong for lunch and this time, Papa decided to give a try at crab dish in Juan Or's presence. All the while, we almost never go for crab dishes when eating out because Juan Or easily becomes restless and fretful if he waits for too long.

Of course Papa ordered other dishes as well, but the crab one came last because crab is not meant to be eaten together with rice...hahaha! The story goes that along the way while eating crab, Juan Or insisted on sitting on Mommy's lap. Mommy was hesitant at first to allow that, but finally decided to give in just in case he becomes fretful. So he sat on Mommy's lap, and soon after that, he became very quiet. Well, that's his first sign of sleepiness. Then soon enough he fell asleep......in Mommy's left arm, but still in sitting position! And Mommy's hands were still busy handling the crab.....like this!




A closer look now.....




Now, what does the crab-eating skill involve? It involves one hand or arm supporting the baby and holding the crab while the other hand does the whatever cracking or twisting or pulling or tearing needed to get the meat from the shell with minimal impact or vibration!

Ha I've been longing to eat crab! Anyway, this will not happen to me. As I will not allow my kids sit on my lap while I'm still eating! And my kids seldom sleep outside. In the car yes. Hehehe.
