Steamed Crabs with Glutinous rice 糯米蟹飯

The other day my sister called me up asking me whether i want 3 kg of fresh crabs, i immediately said sure i want because i don't know where to get fresh crabs from my area. Even the big pasar (wet market) nearby my place, i have never seen peoples selling fresh crabs..
I use half of the crabs cooked with rice vermicilli and canned pork ribs, it was yummy, my mother and sisters enjoyed so much. As for the balance half, i steamed it with glutinious rice for dinner. So total 3kg crabs finished in the same day..Once i have finished cooked dinner, sky already turned dark, so this time i simply took few pictures, no table setting and no beautiful pictures ..
