Special note from Xavier
1) Yes, these are the 海虾 (hai xia) that you find in the market most of the time! Our prices are so good its almost unreal because I went to two other wet markets (both in Jurong East) and their prices start at $25/kg! (online sellers rarely sell it cause its not consistent in supply)
2) The Malaysian sea prawns are supplied from small boats in Malaysia (those are of much higher quality hence the price is higher)
3) Generally, the sizes are small-medium (30-40 pcs per kg) and large ones are uncommon.
