Yeap!  Those two boxes that we brought back from Taiwan contains the snacks we brought back.  You simply ask them to pack it, and leave it in the van for the whole journey.  You don’t even have to bring it down to the car.  On the last day, it will follow you to the airport, magically check in and then, you bring it home.  Wahahaha.

OK.  What is  活跳虾?????

Take a look at the video, then, you know.  Self explanatory.

Its just live jumping shrimps.  And they add in some Chinese wine, sauces, chilli…

IMG 4426

And you simply eat it alive.  YES, while it is jumping.  YES, without taking off the shells.

YES.. eat it alive!

IMG 4423

OK.  Let’s try it.

As you can see from my worried expression.  I did worry a bit.  Will it jump in my mouth?

Will I be sting by its clams?

But as soon as I bite the live shrimp, the FRESH juice of the meat go straight into my throat.

That is when I turn my worried far into big smile. 

It is damn tasty!

My father in law enjoys it too!

Esther, you got to eat it alive you know.  This is like that TV game show.  FEAR FACTOR.

This is what its like after 10 minutes, the live shrimps become dead shrimps.
