The family first had this prawn dish at the Gillman Village Bali Seafood Restaurant. We, especially the kids, love this dish very much mainly because of the magical pumpkin sauce that is sweet, buttery with a tint of curry aroma.

I was very excited when I spotted this recipe in "The New Mrs Lee Cookbook". What excited me in this Ngoh Hiang recipe was the use of crab meat and immediately and physically bookmarked that page in the cookbook for my CNY preparation.

Firstly, I would like to wish all my Chinese readers and followers a very healthy and prosperous year of the snake! Secondly, please accept my sincere apologies for M.I.A. for almost a week. I was so very busy with the new year preparation, cooking, hosting and visiting. There was no post on this blog and I hardly had any chance to visit many of the blogs that I follow.

We planned our itinerary to reach Tasmania Hobart on Friday so that we could visit the famous weekly outdoor Salamanca Market which opens only on Saturday. Before shopping started, we had breakfast at Jackman & McRoss, just a few minutes stroll from the market.

Wife finally finished all her CNY baking of about 10 different types of cookies, sorted and packed into gift boxes ready to be given away. We are not going to start a cookie business any time soon but thought it would be fun to give the cookies a name and print some labels to adorn the cookie containers.

Wife and I were at the supermarket this morning for our weekly grocery shopping. While she went around in her regular route from row to row filling up the shopping cart, I was looking around for ideas and interesting ingredients for our dinner tonight.
