kani kani kani

I'm now on the highway bus making my way back to Tokyo.
I usually take the Shinkansen (bullet train) but thought that as I'm officially a bum without a job I should really take the cheap option.
the bus is pretty much full but in typical Japanese style it's as quiet as my empty apartment in Tokyo. God, remember to put your phone to silent mode, don't wanna be the odd one out!

yesterday we drove all the way to Niigata prefecture just to eat some crab.
I'm not a big fan of crab so it kinda bewildered me why one would want to make a long trip just for these red long-legged deep sea scavengers.

my mind and stomach was elsewhere thinking about my up and coming interviews in Tokyo so I really didn't have an appetite for fresh raw crab. I had a few legs though. skipped on the kani-miso (crab brain).
instead I opted for some yummy negi-toro don; raw tuna and spring onions on a bed of rice; or should I say a bowl of rice.

and yeah to see the ocean again; Nagano ain't got no ocean.
pretty rough, but a nice sight.

feeling a bit car, bus sick...
time to look at the road.

Me, I've just had trouble getting the meat out of the crabs... too much trouble for so little meat! :P

Good luck with your interviews! :)

Thanks. I hope your luck pays off.
I don't know why but I can't leave a comment on your blog via my iPhone... Anyway I hope you are feeling a bit better and not using too many tissues. You should really go to the doctor; I did and I got better pretty quick.

I'm so with you about all the work just for a tiny piece of meat. Not to mention that it leaves you with smelly hands.
And yes, I'm talking about crab.

I know, it's amazing how fast kids grow up! He's already got two teeth come through and can sit up by himself. Amazing really.
So you don't really like crap and crab?! (lol)
I think I prefer crab when it's already been de-legged for me.

I found your blog from Ai's.
Your blog is very funny and another reason I like it is that I'm a very homesick HKese (away 17+ years). It's so interesting to see/hear about HK from your point of view. Oh I'm also dying to go to Japan.
