After all the thrill rides, we have to switch he channel back to the seniors and adults.
The tour guides decided to bring us to 花莲阿美麻糬 店.
This is very good.
The salted egg yog is very nice.
This is what I am talking about! Whahahahaha
The kids are having fun too while their parent shops.
This is what I am talking about…
Almost every one brought back a lot of snacks. Famous Taiwan snacks.
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. 活跳虾！We arrived at the Coy Fish Pond. 鲤鱼谭.
Frist task, let’s sent the kids to the pond first.
Let’s go ride the boat…
All kids have to wear the life vest.
We sent off each boat by each boat.
Good. They have to take at least one hour for the dragon boat cycling.
Bye bye Jay Jay & Kay Kay.
OK. While they “struggle” and pedalling at the pond there, what shall we do…
wow… Lots of eating place.
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…
And you simply eat it alive. YES, while it is jumping. YES, without taking off the shells.
YES.. eat it alive!
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.
Recommended dish. Not for weak heart. Try it!
