I'm back again! Did you miss me? Lots of activities happening these few weeks, with some friends going overseas and some coming back to Singapore. Time is really not enough to do everything you want to do with the people you want to do it with.
So anyway, the group of us went prawn fishing one of those weekday nights where we had nothing better to do with our lives. Bored people included were timmy, QingQing, wenz, eric, lily, kim, xiang and of cos pipi. Being the 'suah ku' that I am, this was my first time prawn fishing and we even had to make 2 u turns on an empty main road to get to the carpark, which I missed on the first try because of too much nonsense happening in the car.
When we finally reached the place, it was quite crowded with about almost 15 to 20 people snatching for the prawns in the pool. But the amazing thing was that I was the first one to catch a prawn! Just put my line into the pool for like 10 seconds, felt a bite, and vua-la~! A live prawn trying desperately to free itself from my shiny hook.
However, it seems that it was only really beginners' luck for me. Because after that magnificant catch, most of the other prawns in our basket were caught by pipi. She even kept scolding me cos I kept letting the the prawns get away with free bait, which was chicken liver by the way.
So anyhow, here are a few pics that I snapped during the few hours that we were there trying to hook some prawns...
One of the fattest prawns we caught during the night
Wenz waiting for his bite...
Eric the man showing us how to unhook the prawn.
Look at those manly arms!!
Timmy trying to look cute while waiting for a bite
Lily waiting for her bite. So pro, only need to use 1 hand!
Here comes the man to check on his girl's progress...
Kim and Xiang sharing their rod.
Kim: Is it sinking yet? [refering to the float]
I heard they had this conversation many times...
At the end of our prawning, we got to enjoy the spoils of our victory...
By reaping what we sowed! Or in this case, cooking what we caught!
Yummy. They were delicious. With free butter and salt provided too!
Our huge prawn with claws still attached.
Did you know prawns had claws? I didn't!
And so we have it, a successful and filling prawn fishing outing!
Let's have more again next time!
And I leave you with a new found everyday use for the remaining prawn heads left untouched on the table...
