Fried Oysters and Robitussin

I'm better but not 100 percent better. So, rather than risk being sick on Thursday, when I'm planning to go to Macau, or be sick on New Year's Eve, I'm laying low today.

I tried this Japanese place near my hotel again. The place is always crowded. The service is not great but the menu has a few good things on it. I got the seafood combo. Those are 3 huge fried oysters and 1 huge fried shrimp.

I thought I was going to have a "Mr. Bean" moment as I attempted to eat that shrimp. Clearly it was not peelable and it was not the kind where you are meant to eat the head.

Luckily, I poked it with my chopsticks and the thing split open. I picked up the tail with my chopsticks and dove into the meat. Very tasty.

Then I came back to my room and took a Benadryl and a swig of Robitussin.
