Diary: Crabs to the slaughter

Any crustaceans knocking about London's East End last month were advised to keep a low profile, lest they became victims of what has become known as the Great Singapore Tourism Board Seafood Massacre. Officially, the event was the Tiger Beer Singapore Chilli Crab Festival, a mouthwatering collision of cold imported lager and fiery, toothsome marine arthropods. Beyond the gourmet delights of 2,000 crabs, visitors - and there were 6,000 of them - were entertained by lion dances, magic and massages, along with authentic hawker stalls. Hopefully the sea floor will recover for a repeat next year.
