Each of the cartoon lion's character depicts our mood on board this trip !
Can you guess who was crowded the Merlion King ? :lol:
The answer is ... dBs & Vidic ... the last two standing !
We have a sleeping beauty on board ... we have a merlion king too ...
Comical it might seems ... but I am just so glad all of us came back home safely.
Nothing more important than being safe after so much happenings in offshore fishing in recent years ...

Are you ready for the CR ?

68sets of photo collage ... let me share our Kuching trip with you ~ enjoy and let's heard the WOW !! :D

Everything went smoothly ... no hiccups and we were at the jetty by noon time.
While Macko busy sourcing food and getting things in place before setting off ...
We had a light lunch at the seafood restaurant and a quick tour at the famous hill top Chinese temple.
After climbing 142 steps ... we got a bird's eye view of the coast line ...
LOW TIDE leh ... how ?

Wait lor ?

Says who ... I still cannot believe we managed to get onto the boat at low low tide ...
How did we do it you might ask ... that's for you to find out and for me to know ! haha~

Let's go fishing ~ :yay:

Our little sanctuary ...

Seriously ... we did not know much about what boat we are taking, which boatman etc etc ...
The zillion of questions most anglers will want to find out for such a trip ...
None of us has an answer !
We left everything in the hand of our trusted Fishing Guide ~ Macko !!
And he did not disappoint us once again ... we have faith in him, just pay ! :lol:

For one thing we do know ... we are having pork on board.
This was made possible coz it's 100% Chinese on board from boatman to deckhands and the 6 1/2 Singaporeans anglers.

The sleeping area is "neat" and "clean" ... compared to most wooden boat charters we have been to.
When I dare to use the bed without the sleeping bag ... you don't have to worry de lor ....
My worst ever experience remained the TP trip ... it was nightmarish !

Alright back to Kuching ...
everyone settled down quickly with each "chopping" a sleeping place meant for 12 but there were only 7 of us
What's there to chop ? LOL !
The boys quickly set up the tackles while the two ladies ... Zzzz liao loh :lol:

Hmmm ... as I am typing this cr right now ... I notice something interesting ...
While all of us were surrounded and landing red chicken ...
There was one person who was fishing among us but not getting splashed by the red "paint" ... ?
Does it rings a bell ? Something interesting took place but we did not realized till now ...
Remember the Cobia incident in Rompin ?
No wonder it happened !! :eyebrow:

Mood was totally different from Day 1 ...

We were saying to our-self quietly ... am not gonna come back again !
That was day 1.
Then on day two ... some have shifted from a firm no to considering ...
And the final night is deadly and irreversible ... it's a unanimous YES ! Kuching 2013 !! :yay:

After dinner ... time was spend chit chatting ...
Wasting a little time while we wait for the moon to go away ...
Yes ... we want the moon to go away ... little children want to play~

The boatman couldn't wait ...
Without a word ... we saw him going to the ice box where the frozen bait fish were kept ...
I was wondering why was he picking all the rotten and broken ones ...
Coz he wanted to make a burley out of those ~

And guess who was the first recipients of his hard work ? :grin:

ME !!

Many times ... we were told not to do bottom fishing,tenggiri spot only ... aim tenggiri ...
But this man choose to differ ... he insisted on playing bottom.
We test and trial ... really no bite one leh.
And I tried persuading him without success ... he still went his way.
And it was a right choice !
I was still high over the tenggiri just landed not long ago ...
And while talking among our-self in high spirit ...
My eyes set sight at the deckhand at the far end screaming n pointing at me signalling for me to look behind.
And guess what ... Simon's rod bend to a C !!!
The guessing game began ... it's a tenggiri ... it's a BIG tenggiri ...
it's a BIG Kaci ... it's a shark ... what is it !?

YES ! The answer was out when the fish surfaced afar ... and the deckhand shouted out 海雷!

YES YES YES !!
He finally caught a Cobia and it was landed in Kuching ! :D

It's check-in time at the Habour View Hotel.
All I need is a soft comfy bed to sleep on ... and I had my simple wish granted.
I get to sleep on a BIG single bed all by myself ...
no come come grab my blanket and no one to box me at the back and said he was dreaming ... lol !
I was kinda worried ... coz he caught his dream fish of 6 years !!
Imagine if he dream fighting the fish again ? ... god bless me please ... :lol:

Dinner Time ... at TOP SPOT.
An eating place frequent by the locals, plenty of seafood ...
But all I want is a plate of Miding ... jungle fern !!
I get to eat this local delicacy once a year ... had this dish last year in Miri.
After this meal ... will have to wait for another year before I get to eat "grass" again.

Right below is the local style of fried oyster cake ...
Can someone bring this concept to Singapore, it might just be the next IN thing.
Crispy oyster cracker style ... uniquely Kuching !

Alarm set ... and had my best fishing buddies and eating kakis ready to go eat eat eat at 6am !!

It's rush hours for we have less than 2 hours ...
First target ... Sarawak Kolo mee !
Then it's Sarawak laksa ... thankfully both stall we tried were very good.
Sadly we do not have much time and was too full to eat further ...
Made Simon ta-pau-ed loti chenai instead of eating at the restaurant.
We are all full to the max but the smell of the ghee was so good ...
Each of us nibbled small bites from him as we walked back to the hotel.

Next trip ... we shall have an extra day in Kuching so we can eat till we drop ! Idea ? :eyebrow:

Appetizer ... the horizon in Kuching and the wonderful sound of music we enjoyed for 4days 3 nights ...





Cold dish ... Vidic demonstrating how to prepare baits for fishing on board ~ :mischieve:




Serving ... Main Course ~ enjoy ! :D
*I've decided not to edit the videos so if you know me ... put on your ear plugs !! :lol:



* It was a double hook up, one from Vidic and another from Macko.
I off the video when Macko landed his red chicken thinking VIdic has lost his catch coz his line entangle with another angler's
While I was at the far back videoing another catch ...
Vidic carried on his fight and successfully landed the other red chicken. :thumbsup:
