The Crabs Hate us!

The first time we went to Wales was in Spring last year. The farthest point in Wales that we visited was Cardiff. It was a fun day trip as I remembered. Then, we bought the Visit Wales book and few places in Pembrokshire look so awesome in that book. We were so excited with the idea of visiting Pembrokeshire. Since my parents are here, we thought this could be a short and exciting holiday for all of us. 


On Sunday morning, we woke up early and get ready for the trip. The bad news was Mrkamahkamah had a fever. His temperature was 39 degree. We were so reluctant to go. But we know that the fact if we see the nurse at Walk-In Centre will not bring any good as they will send Mrkamahkamah home with calpol and asked us to monitor him for 3 days. So, we decided to go. My mom said just go to the hotel at Pembroke Dock and rest. Mrkamahkamah was good during the journey but the thing is he cannot see any shops. He always has things to buy; be it chocolate, crisps, drink, whatever he can think of. He always holds the thing that he's going to buy, put it on the till and wait Mommy to pay for it. Sometimes he doesn't want the crisps, he just want to buy it, he really enjoys the shopping-experience, perangai sapa la ko amek nak oi! The other thing that always make me think twice before taking him to any shopping mall is the machine toy car. I know all children love riding the machine toy car. But this boy would insists to ride all cars there. Imagine if they have 3 toy cars, he would be satisfied if he could ride all the cars, then he can go home with an ear-to-ear smile, ergh!



After a few stops, we arrived at Pembroke Dock around 1.30pm. Since all of us were super hungry, we headed to Tesco. My parents love jacket potato with beans and fish and chips. Food is never a problem to us, you see. T-Bag had a mozarella panini. We went to Pound Stretcher and Brantano footwear shop to kill the time as the check-in time is at 3pm. Check-in and rest till 6.30pm. I put a small towel on Mrkamahkamah's forehead, his body temperature was 39.5 at that time. 7pm, we were ready to go to Kak Rozi's house in Haverfordwest. We had a great curry mee, my abah tambah 3 times I tell you! Thanks Kak Rozi!


My body started to give me a fever sign; sore throat, a mild flu and headache. Took paracetamol when we were already at the hotel. I kept on giving 8ml of calpol to Mrkamahkamah every six hours. At 4am, I checked the temperature, Alhamdulillah, the fever subsided. 


We managed to visit Carew Castle the next day. We didn't go inside the castle as it opens at 11am.

What makes me feel frustrated was we didn't find any crabs. We heard so many stories about the cheap crabs in Pembrokeshire. I googled few places and asked around, but na-da, no crabs. First we went to Milford Haven. There is a place opposite the Riverside Quay and it is really close to the dock. At first I imagined that I'll be looking at seafood spread. Amazingly, no crabs were sold and ikan yang ado pun, alahaiii! After that we went to Riverside Quay to look around. Macam bandar mati yo, chaihhh!!! Baru nak berangan macam dalam cerita The OC, ampeh!



I think we spent around 2 hours just searching for fishmongers that sell live crabs. I concluded that all crabs hate us! Then, I tried to find a nice decent place for lunch, but again, na da. Kak Rozi, macamana Kak Rozi hidup di sana, huh? We ended up having lunch at Tesco. But this time, my abah and me had a vegetarian Christmas meal which was awesome. 

And we know that we're not that kind of people that loves looking at scenery and took load of pictures.
Food testing, shopping and spa holiday; that is my kind of holiday.
Huh, bankruptcy la ini macam!
