A little bit of everything through the lens.

Good Food at Good Price, Really? (14)

Monday, July 20, 2009 by , under ,

A lot of "zy" and "sy" had kept me away from blogosphere in the past weeks or so. You know the "zy" and "sy" right? Yes, it's lazy and busy...hehehe...

Anyhoo, I think I'm back or at least until I'm summoned to save the world again...(yeah right, keep dreaming Colin)...

Since I don't have time to mess with any photos I have taken recently, here are some taken many moons ago which I conveniently forgot to post, as usual...

We were told about this good deal at Pappadeaux (pronounced papa-dough) Seafood Restaurant. Didn't take us long to get there. By the way, these deals were over months ago, hopefully it will come back next year.

$3.95/lb of crawfish includes corn and potatoes. Crawfish also known as mudbugs, crawdads, crayfish, yabbies...depending on where you live. I think they call it "little lobster" in China. The meat is a little bit rough and tough compare to shrimp meat, though not as tasty as shrimp, it's still very good. Crawfish are usually boil with many spices with potatoes and corn. If I recall correctly, we consumed 4 lb of this spicy crustaceans that night.

$3.95 for a dozen of oyster. Need I say more? A very satisfactory meal at a very good price indeed. A little note to self about this photo, next time take the time to turn the oyster(the one in the middle) around to show the meat, a photo of the shell is not interesting to look at. Another case of "I'm too hungry, lets hurry up and put the camera away..."...*sigh*...

Last 2 photos of the crawfish and oyster were taken with a Sigma 10-20mm lens on loan from my boss. I think this lens perform well, the edges is a bit soft(due to distortion) but I think that's common with most wide angle lens. I didn't keep the lens for long so I didn't get some wide angle outdoor shot which should be pretty cool. Do I need a lens like this? YES, I DO! Anybody interested in donating to this good cause, please email me...hehehe...

Long waiting post, as usual, nice photo and nice foods. Never try crawfish before, but I saw a same one in a 'Know Sweden"'s book, my previous Swedish boss gave this book to me. Sorry lah, I myself also waiting for someone to donate a new camera for me, a bit blur on all the technical terms you stated also.

温馨小屋 - Lazy and busy...aren't we all...hahaha...
Thank you for your compliment.

Sonia - Yup, it's been a while since my last post. They have crawfish in Sweden too?! Wow! I have no idea. Don't worry about the technical terms yet, you will learn about it when you're exposed more to photography.

HK - You described crawfish meat the best, I've been trying to find words to do just that. Faye and I like it because it's a seasonal thing, and if the spices are done right, it could be very tasty. That's true, my camera bag follow me almost everywhere, hahaha...

summer - Yup, yup, good food is a good source of happiness! I hope we all can get out of both zy and sy soon...hehehe....

Hi Colin! You updated the post at the right time cause I just came back not long ago! I like mudbugs too but they can be pretty tedious too (if I happen to wear nice on that night) hehe... good shot! Are you getting one of these lens soon? Cool!

crawfish have hard shell like lobster too?


Colin Woon on July 22, 2009 at 9:38 PM

jdexign - Hahaha...too few photos because I was too busy eating...

Shell - Don't we all need some new lens...hahaha...

米亚 - Good to know that you're back! Looking forward to your trip post. Yup, mudbugs could be tedious, I always where dark cloths whenever I have them. Ya...I want a new lens like that but short of cash now...wanna donate?

mimid3vils - Crawfish shell is somewhat like shrimp shell, not as hard as lobster shell though.
