HONG KONG'S court-acclaimed ''lobster king'' Tsang Wai-wa was yesterday ordered to end his week-long seafood feeding frenzy with a nine-month diet of porridge. This legacy of the lobsters was dished out by Eastern Court magistrate Fergal Sweeney after Tsang, 30, admitted illegally devouring six lobsters from the tank of a seafood restaurant. Tsang's duty lawyer James Cheng said his client was not only a drug lover but a seafood lover while Mr Sweeney asked if perhaps Tsang was considering opening a seafood restaurant. The crustacean criminal told the court that he successfully escaped with six lobsters from a restaurant on January 30, and was on his seventh at a nearby restaurant on February 7 when the long arm of the claw caught up with him. The restaurant's cook, Shea Kam-fai, 32, saw Tsang put his hand inside the fish tanks and remove one of the lobsters. Mr Shea shouted for Tsang to stop but he ran off leaving the lobster on the ground. After a brief chase he was caught. Tsang later told police that he had taken a total of six lobsters from a restaurant in Shau Kei Wan Road on January 30 and ate them all. He also told police that he intended to steal the previous one for his own consumption. The lobsters were valued at a total of $2,130. Before sentencing Tsang, Mr Sweeney asked Mr Cheng what he was going to say on behalf of the ''lobster king''. ''Is he going to open a seafood restaurant?'' Mr Sweeney asked. Tsang is serving an eight months' jail term for possession of a dangerous drug and a similar lobster theft. He was sentenced on Wednesday. Sentencing Tsang to one month imprisonment which was to run consecutively to the current jail term, Mr Sweeney said he was afraid Tsang would have to eat ordinary food during the next nine months in jail.
