When was the last time I ate crabs? Quite sometimes now..this crab in Malay, we called it Ketam bunga (Flower Crab)?...I would prefer the other type..Ketam Batu...bought the Ketam this morning, all quite small ones.. not so 'meaty' cause there was this uncle who went marketing too.. he said, 'Never mind you take all lah ', after he choose the big ones..basket..
