Who's cooking?

On one of a rare occasion when the entire family decides to come together for a gathering and to celebrate for no defined reason (well, not exactly no apparent reason as granny had recently been discharged from hospital)
My parents came up to Penang as well and all the more reason to celebrate as they want my family to join in as well and therefore, it became the simple excuse for a sort of pot luck party at home!

Seafood starts with Shells (not A, B, C)
I always find this spiky thing creepy!

OMG you really made me hungry! Nothing beats homecooked meals! You really made me craving for those crabs and noodles...in fact the lots! Now, I'm away from Penang laaaa for few months :'-( The crabs here are all precooked and expensive... none as fresh as we can find in M'sia. Can you ask your aunts to share their recipes online??? Please..please...please... Can make them famous like you!
