I'm going diving tomorrow
I'm going diving tomorrow
I'm going diving tomorrow

Tried out my new Mares PureVision
Tried out my new pink Apollo Biofins
Packed my neccessary items

Please bear with me, just as much as I'm bearing myself
My laptop died
My selfish brother refused to lend me his laptop
Neither does he allow me to use the desktop
What an asshole
& as a result
I haven been logging in & surfing for days!
Other than several secretive attempts to access via office's network
That only 'entitles' me several seconds
Before they lock me out of the site
Life without internet kinda sucks
I also have no time to surf net
Reach home damn tired
I long for sleep
& I shall do so during my trip up North Malaysia in 2 days' time!
Monday, April 24, 2006
Coz busy with something else mah
& it had been pretty interesting!
Saturday had my driving lesson
The best one I had
I drove pretty well, I assumed
& I could do my U-turn perfect
Although at times abit fierce
Big boss instructor was talking on phone
& so he left me driving on my own
Then when the turning angle wasnt right
He scolded me after he hung up his call
"You very clever hor? You know I talking on phone cant scold you go drive very fierce lah?"
Big boss instructor also very funny
Coz he owns several cars with car plate number 9X5X
& there was 3 of these 9X5X cars on the road
In same lane
& I laughed
It was such a funny sight ok!
But with L-plates
Then after the U-turn
All 3 cars headed straight ahead
In front of us 3 was a BBDC car
The 1st car accelerated & overtook
Then I accelerated & overtook
The 3rd car sadly didnt join the game
Me & Big Boss Instructor laughed until buay tahan
Machiam pai-kias on the road
& we imagined the scenario of that BBDC learner
Challenged by Ah Beng & Ah Lian (aka me)
Dong ta buay diao
Big Boss Instructor very rich worrrrr
Bought Subaru WRX worrrrr
I exclaimed"REALLY?! I WANT I WANT!"
He:"After you pass I let you drive loh"
Big Boss Instructor taught me how to overtake
Asked me to step hard on the accelerator
& so I did
He said not enough
So I stepped harder
Till I hit 90km/hr
From 1st lane to 3rd lane back to 2nd lane
Then I said:"Oi, ai si ah? Later people taught I siao. Overtake here & there"
& he just giggled the whole 2hr lesson
I love my Big Boss Instructor
As much as I love my Er Ge
& my DarDar
So after my lesson
I rushed all the way down to ADEX with DarDar
I was running about like crazy
Sooooooooooooooooooooooooo many dive related things to check out
Met several people
Like Roy, Martin & Tze Yau
I took alot of brochures
So much that I dont think I'll have time to read them all until Vesak Day
Only could stayed for 2 hours
& we left
DarDar blamed me for making him 'gian' to go diving
Which he also wanted to dive years ago
But as always
Ghost of procrastination never fails anyone
Headed back Woodlands to meet Seh Chin & Lionel to talk cock
Next day (aka Sunday 23 April 2006)
I returned to ADEX to help out with the BlueWaterVolunteers
& I had the Exhibitor Pass that allows me to enter & exit freely
Not that bad
& I met alot of people whom I haven met for ages!!!
Like Ivy, Hanpeng, Ria, ChayHoon, Clifford, Esther, Edd, Tze Yau (again)
It's always nice to have people who share the same interest with you
Scubazoo was there too
& I went to look for Simon
I was being offered a job interview at Sabah, remember?
That allows me to work in Maldives
However I have to pay my own expenses to get there
So i grabbed this chance to talk to the person-in-charge
However I understand the situation he mentioned
But I believe he knows I'm still keen about the job
& he said he'll keep me in loop
Thanks Simon Enderby
If you think eating chocolate is sinful enough
I bet I'm damn sinful today
I bought several things which cost alot
I think I shall eat bread from tomorrow onwards
Usual price: S$95; ADEX price: S$75
Usual price: S$250; ADEX price: S$200
ScubaOne mesh bag
Usual price: unknown; ADEX price: S$20
SeaPro dive gloves
Usual price: S$30; ADEX price: $17
The total amount is blood-pukable
Please do the calculation yourself
On top of that
I also got lotsa freebies!
Like free Dive magazines, free dive DVD, free posters
Thanks Edd for giving me the latest copy of AsianDivers
He said supposedly not free de
But we friend friend ma
Good thing about people with same passion
I like these posters
That person purposely help me search for the one on Whale Shark coz it wasnt on the display counter
& he saw me made the sad face =(
He helped me find
& I got it!!!
MON RHINCODON TYPUS!
Check out my brochure collections
I'm gonna decorate my room with all nice underwater pictures I've got
Make it look as if I'm underwater too
Save the actual dive trip!
I really enjoyed myself very much at the exhibition
Knew new people
Shared dive knowledge
Just cant wait to go Perhentian in 5 days!
& DarDar & I had decided to go Bangkok next year
ADEX 2007 WILL BE HELD IN BANGKOK!!!
Same time can celebrate DarDar's birthday too
Saturday, April 22, 2006
*sob sob sob sob sob*
I'd said it's a good show
& I'm grabbing its DVD for collection
Damn bloody hell
My laptop died AGAIN!
This time isnt so bad
At least can start up
But the pissed off thing is it's keyboard error
& still can ask me to press F1 to resume, F2 to setup
Think it's time for proper reservice
I'm going ADEX tomorrow
Grab my dive gears
See you at BlueWaterVolunteers/WildFilms booth, my friends

DO YOU SMELL IT?
I'm starting to go crazy over my very-anticipated dive trip at Perhentian, Redang
I waited for half year for it ok!
Tell me how not to be
Abang said that the caterpillar poison is invading my brains
That's why I'm acting like a kuku recently
I'll have caterpillars crawling outta my body
& I'll turn into a butterfly
I have 2 deadlines to meet tomorrow
& just as I'm trying to finish them
Out popped a major project that requires me to finish by next week
Gotta OT liao
Just wish to get it done asap so I can leave Singapore with an eased mind
WHO HAS UNDERWATER CAMERA CAN LEND ME?
How can go Redang without underwater camera?
When the water is so damn clear!
What if I see my Rhincodon typus, Manta birostris, Bolbometopon muricatum, Eretmochelys imbricata, Cheilinus undulatus........?
& I cant take any pictures?
I'll be a very sad girl even if I'm happy enough to travel to Redang
Please please please
May someone please lend me an underwater camera
Gonna watch Eight Below with Kel P, Andy & Lionel
Alot of Siberian Huskies
My fave doggies!
But I think Walt Disney is damn *duhz*
Antarctica is located at the South Pole
It does not support Siberian Huskies
South pole has no aurora
You'll know what I meant when you go watch it
But I know now coz I watched the trailer
& it is DUHZ!
I'm only watching coz of the dogs
So very unscientific films are, nowadays
I'm expecting my Pirates of Caribean II & also my X-men III
MY JOHNNY DEPP!
MY JACK HUGHMAN!

I LOVE TOM W!!!!
TOM IS COMING SINGAPORE FROM HONG KONG TO MALAYSIA TO JOIN ME IN MY NITROX DIVING!!!
>_< >_< >_<
Work is fucking stressful today
& my colleagues kept asking me for Paceco/Anarex
Running outta stock
They call me 'Dr Wong'
Coz I distribute medicine around
Be it headache, stomachache, sore throat
Say I can open mini pharmacy in office liao
Today at 6pm sharp
All of us left the office
All 6 of us outta 35 people
Never have this happened before
Just so funny
Met Kel P for dinner
Said go BPP but Kel P was waiting for me at Bt Timah
I'm so tired
Tuesday, April 18, 2006
ADEX is coming
& I can see all the dive gears I wanna grab
& I'll also be there helping out BlueWaterVolunteers & WildFilms
Just went to Absolute Scuba to pay for my trip
& my 2 Dive Junkies tees
Total of $504 at one shot
Was thinking of doing Nitrox at Tioman next month
I'm going mad
Addition $150-200 though on top of $300
I want my Great White Shark card !!
Chio hor chio hor?
Crawl faster to Day Zero for my Perhentian trip can?
I was dead for the day & revived 24hours later
Busy working lah
That caterpillar really sucks
It's making my arm to swell
& it's damn itchy!!!
So now it's red & swollen
& in that swell, there's another swell that looks like hives/urticalaria
& in that hives is a dark-colored depression
THAT LOOKS EXACTLY LIKE THE SHAPE OF THE 2CM LONG CATERPILLAR!!!!!!
Abang keeps teasing me
Asking me when will I turn into a butterfly
Dr Chow gave me Dhacort to apply
Funny he didnt give me any Piriton
But luckily I have my own supply
He said it's an allergic reaction to that insecta
& I should consider myself lucky!
Some people actually have rashes all over after being stung by spikey caterpillar
I'm really lucky then
It has been itching me the whole day
& now I'm starting to scratch elsewhere
Like my face, my scalp, my chest, my legs...
STUPID MAO MAO CHONG!!
Sunday, April 16, 2006
As planned on Friday
Kel P, Andy & I are going biking
From my house all the way to Bt Timah Nature Reserve
Along the mountain bike trail at ZhengHua Park
Alot of slopes
I'm one helluva dangerous biker
Coz my bike has no brakes!
& my tyres are wearing out!
& I fell down again while going to Shell station to pump tyre
Kel P was blocking my path & I couldnt brake!
So buang loh!
& Kel P never catched me fall
Instead he catched his bike
The track to Bt Timah Nature Reserve is wonderful
First time I get so close with the terrestrial nature
Most of the time with marine
I saw monkeys
I saw orioles
I saw drugeons
I saw many cool birds
Best of all
I see freshwater streams
Which reminds me of my freshwater ecology
All the Ephemeroptera, Odonata, Simuliidae, etc
With leaf litter input to provide FPOM (fine particulate organic matter)
& I thought streams never exist in Singapore!
& I ever kept pestering my friends go Kota Tinggi see waterfall
Kel P wanna drink the water from the stream
& I told him if he doesnt mind nymphs hatching in his body
Leech crawling out of his face
He can go ahead
After 3 hours
We reached the visitor centre of Bukit Timah Nature Reserve
Just as I was going down the slope
I lost my balance & leaned against this wooden railing
& something poked me real hard
I looked at it
& whinned very loudly
I WAS STUNG BY A CATERPILLAR!!!
*SOB SOB SOB SOB*
Then when it subsided after I had my First Aid from the counter guy
It became blue-black
If tomorrow I never blog
Or for the rest of the days
Means I kana poisoned to death liao
Headed to Al Azhar for lunch
& then headed back home
All of us were wet & drenched
Somemore all our bikes almost skidded
Machiam playing Underground 2
I shall conquer the trail again after I get my new bike with good brakes
It's so disappointing unable to ride down slopes just coz I have no brakes!
Later I fly like Superwoman sia
I'm so tired now
Haven rest well since Kukup trip loh
Had 4 bottles of Barcardi Breezer & a jug of Whisky Coke
While playing Guessing game
Lost several times
So was punished to drink
Drank until abit seh
Music was I-donno-what-to-say
Some are good, some are *shrugz*
& I'm very amazed by how people danced with those funny handsigns!
Coz it's very borrrrrrrrrrrrrrring
Then went to find Ace nearby
Stayed for a while & left for home
Saw this guy lying on the floor at the busstop near Mohd Sultan
Totally drunk & concussed
When I reached my house busstop
I fell down while alighting!!!
My stupid heels caught my jeans
& I tripped
& sat along the edge
I exclaimed a very loud 'FUCK!'
A couple saw though
I WAS NOT DRUNK!
Must be my retribution for giggling at the poor chap
Seh Chin said he should have been there to catch me fall
Next time lah..
Next time I fall down then you pick me up loh...
CHIO BU CANNOT FALL DOWN ONE!!!
I'm still feeling very embarassed
Accumulative hatre for high-heels

Title: When the travel freaks start to mumble........
Date: 1 week ago
"Where shall we go next time? Thought of going Bangkok"
"BANGKOK?! I WANT!"
"Also feel like going Phuket.."
"Eeeyeer, that time I said go Bangkok go Phuket all dont want. Now one year later then say"
"Ok la, we go Bangkok la"
"When? When? When?"
"September loh, June too soon, no money"
"How about we go Genting?"
"But go we dont book room, play throughout the night"
"Hur, i sure buay tahan"
"Can one la, sleep on the bus la.."
"If not we go Kukup every month la"
"Somehow feel like going Korea"
"I dont like Korea leh...Go there eat Kimchi"
"If I can spend $600 to Korea, I rather go Aussie, can dive!"
"Dont talk to her, go where also must go diving one"
"Maybe we can try going to those rural places backpacking & stuffs.."
"Hmmm... the golden triangle? Myamar? Laos? Cambodia?"
"Ok lah, set Thailand first la. I go check out the price then tell you all"
On top of that
Kel P & I are planning to visit Churaumi Aquarium in Okinawa
Wonder if they grant guest divers
Friday, April 14, 2006
Committee from different organisations have been bombarding the board on untrue facts
& I was pretty amused by what was going on
Although I was unable to attend any of those meetings
The most recent one was done last night at NSS
& was glad that I was very updated with the aftermath
I actually emailed JTC requesting to view the EIA (Environmental Impact Assessment) report on the reclamation of Pulau Ular last month
But work has been tying me down
& can never do so to head down to the office
I was abit... disappointed, yet feeling ridiculous about the whole thing
The EIA repport MUST be read on the spot
Cant take out of the office
& during office hours
My interest in wanting to read it is that
I wanna see how EIA in SG differs that in HK
I'm always curious when comparisons are involved
Furthermore I'd done my EIA module before, scored A for the project
& I'm sure I can pick out flaws from it, if there's any
I dont see why it must be digested there
HK gave out EIA reports for free
Limited to one upon registration with individual's IC number
& the audience can just go home & digest slowly
& bring up points for discussion (or rather verbal wars) when a meeting is scheduled
Which I believe the panels will then consider these picked-out flaws to improve the situations
So why cant we?
Sad to say
HK has never improve any situations no matter how many discussions with the public had been made
Democratic issues being the primary refrains
Bringing back to my Fisheries issue I'd written last year
Govt & fishermen can never agree on each other
When the marine reserve proposal was out
& comments were invited
I hesitated to write in
Mainly I was told by Tom C that it wont even get published if I go too against/agruementative
& that it just WONT work even if I speak with all the logics & senses
& in the end
I didnt bother too
Coz it'll be a waste of effort since no one will take into considerations
What I wanted to write in is
How do they define 'Marine Reserve'?
They claimed that human activities can still go on when their main objective is to protect the habitat & its species
Meanwhile, earning extra 'profit' by increasing tourisms
This puzzles me
A Marine Reserve is a protected area where NO human activites are allowed
A Marine Park is an area where conservation still takes place with LIMITED human activities
How can you preserve a location, conserve the environment when you expect increase in tourisms that contributes to increased human activities?
VERY CHIM AH!
Taking the marine reserve of Cape D'aguilar & marine park of Hoi Ha Wan for example
Cape D'aguilar does not allow any human activities unless a permit is issued to the individuals
No fishing, no collecting of samples, blah blah
My marine institue is located there
& I'm NOT EVEN ALLOWED TO STEP BEYOND THE INTERTIDAL LEVEL TO OBSERVE MY STUPID CELLANA GRATA!
Bloody hell made me go to the exposed Shek O where waves came clashing on me
Dr Andrew Cornish showed us his thesis on fish conservation between these 2 places
Number of fishes increases significantly in the reserve than in the park
Sizes are also significantly larger
Another point to add in
Hoi Ha Wan was deposited with AR (artifical reefs) to hopefully provide more habitats for the fishes, hoping to increase number of species
This, however, is insignificant
Bringing back these issues
What the newly Marine Reserve is to be built in Singapore might not work
It doesnt have a definite answer to what they want to do
Reserve or Park?
No human activites at all or increase tourisms?
When artifical reef proves no significance in the increase of species
Now this Pulau Hantu thing is really getting interesting
Proving how noobs these people are 'trying' to conserve
when their objectives & information of baseline surveys are doubtful
YOUR EIA PLEASE!
DO AN EIA FIRST BEFORE DISCUSSION WITH PUBLIC!
SPREAD THE EIA AROUND WHOLE SINGAPORE, MALAYSIA & EVEN BATAM!
WHAT IS SO SHAMEFUL TO LET EVERYONE KNOW?
WHEN YOU REQUEST FOR INPUTS, MAKE IT A 17 MILLION (SG got so many people mah?) INPUTS INSTEAD OF A PATHETIC 50!
WHEN BRAZIL CAN MAKE IT, WHY CANT SINGAPORE DO IT TOO WHEN IT'S JUST A DOT ON THE MAP?
Wake up, people
& it's embarassing enough to mistake Anand Sundaram Balan for N. Sivasothi
Went out with Kel P
Went Suntec & Marina Square to window shop
Then went to watch movie - Black Night
Got one scene kana shocked
& I screamed a lil
Kel P kept laughing at me
Then back Woodlands for KTV with Andy
3 of us today damn siao
But we are always this siao
Andy was rolling tobacco
Tried few breaths
But cant taste how it really taste like leh
I sang 'Bu pa bu pa' worrrrrrr
KUA DIO KA CHUA WA BUAY KIA BUAY KIA LIAO
Sibei high I tell you
Almost max volume
Blast the whole studio
Went home at 1am
Eyes cant open sia
Poor Er ge still gotta work on Good Friday
I have my driving lesson though
Donno at night do what leh
Brother Maumau hasnt update me
Er ge quick come back play with me
Quick quick quick
Wednesday, April 12, 2006
My heart was beating very fast
When I looked at the clock
I started to worry
I packed my stuffs
& left as soon as it striked six
Thanks Ace for fetching me to the desired destination
& making it on time
First ride on a Honda CBR
Lotsa funny incidents happened
But I was really really grateful that he made my event possible
& hopefully successful
If only I can give Ace a BIG hug
I FEEL SO EASED NOW!!
Half day! Half day!
Going shopping & movie tomorrow
Hope I get to enjoy my day
What should I wear tomorrow?
Tuesday, April 11, 2006
She (most left) won third though
Hope I'm not too late
Although I think I am
*claps claps claps claps claps*
Why am I so busy today?
Stupid people anyhow keyed in particulars into system
& I have to verify, admend & update
I'm sooooooooooooooooooooooooooo busy this week
Tomorrow gotta rush down for a very important event
If not I'll regret for life & rot myself to death
Thursday half day
But already booked by Kel P
Friday booked by Big Boss Instructor
Saturday booked by Sheryl & gang to DBL O
Long time never chiong liao
Stupid Andy agreed to go DBL O with me
BUT stupid him
Yesterday pay-day go withdraw money
But ATM machine ate his card
SO NO MONEY LOH!!
CANT GO WITH ME LOH!
BEST LIAO LOH!!!
He asked me dont be angry
But I was laughing like hell when he told me that
Really buay tahan
Should I sponser him?
18 more days to Redang
& ADEX is coming!
Gotta grab some dive gears before heading off
Needa a pair of gloves
Cant afford to get stung by hydroids again
See if I can get a dive watch too
or anything cheap yet practical
Will be there helping out with Blue Water Volunteers & WildFilms
Pop down & take a look okie?
I bet it's gonna be puuuuuuuuuurrrrrrr-fect
Monday, April 10, 2006
Er ge must be so proud of me
Good news on top of everything
An opportunity returns to me
Which I initially had to reluctantly let it slip
I never let things things go outta my way!
THIS IS NEITHER AN EXCEPTIONAL!
It so makes me wanna rap
You better lose yourself in the music, the moment
You own it, you better never let it go
You only get one shot, do not miss your chance to blow
This opportunity comes once in a lifetime yo
Should be happy
But something is missing
What is it?
Sunday, April 09, 2006
Early morning kana by him
Let him for the day
What to do?
Birthday boy leh...
Both of our birthdays falls on 9th
But 8 months apart
Now lemme recall
Where was I when I was 18?
Stuck in HongKong sadly mugging for exams
Felt fortunate for my brother
Able to spend birthday with family
I dont even have my classmates to do that with me while my family is absent
Sad to say
My parents actually forgot my birthday
It's just another day
I'm having panic attacks again
I donno if I'm stressed or what
Or that I'm totally sick of working
I feel really uneased
Feel like crying
But I dont have a shoulder
I'm sooooooooooooooo irritated by almost everything
I wanna get away!
Perhentian in 20 days!
Knocked poles like never knocked before
WHICH IS TRUE!!
This is my first time knocking poles
& I donno if I should be honoured
Now I also know my Big Boss instructor also falls asleep
Went out with Andy
Had Pepper Lunch for dinner
Which isnt that bad
& then went for movie
Ice Age 2 was damn funny
But I think that stupid squirrel-looking creature is pretty irritating
& for the whole show it just keeps on chasing after the damn bloody acorn
Hasnt it chased enough during Ice Age?
Day just flies
& I'm looking forward this coming Thursday
I hope I dont rot my life over
Friday, April 07, 2006
There are 7 people trying to ask me out
But I cant coz I just cant
I hate it when all of a sudden
I jio 7 people out
But none of them reply
I dont fucking care if it's retribution
So fuck it
I had many many thoughts very recently
& it almost burst my brains
So full of thoughts that it goes numb
Found people to talk about it
& everyone called me plain stupid
Yes I admit
But can I at least have a listening ear first?
I'm glad that Kel P took care of me last night
I might have gone wild
& run along the sandy beaches
Jumping into the water
& float myself off to Pulau Ubin
But he kept me accompanied by my side the whole night
But we enjoyed ourselves nonetheless
A mini BBQ with Kel P, his bro, Dean & his friend
Kel P sent me a very comforting SMS when I got home
Which I bet no one had even cared to do so
For something that does not bother him at all
All I did was, I smiled at my handphone screen
Why is the right person always the wrong one?
Wednesday, April 05, 2006
MY EYES CANT OPEN ANYMOREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
Donno why so many people jio me out lately
But I reject them all coz I needa sleep badly
Suddenly work bounced out a task
Ok lah, not so suddenly
But coz everyone thought that someone is doing but actually no one doing
So must do loh!
& deadline on 7 April
WHAT THE FUCK WHAT THE FUCK WHAT THE FUCK?!
How can finish?!?!?!?!?
Met Abel for dinner
Supposedly go find Martin at the dive shop
But he got last minute unexpected meeting till very late
I could have stayed back & worked on my things!
Abel gave me 2 packs of cigs free
Tomorrow overnight fishing
Donno can survive or not
Tuesday, April 04, 2006
The more I clear the area
The more unprocessed documents I find
The more I have to do!!!
Damn my itchy hands
Met up with Handsome together with Abang for short coffee break
Had satays for snacks
Buay tahan these 2 guys
Kept teasing me
Said I'm very teasable
I think I know what that ugly species is
Threadfin sea catfish (Arius arius)
I cant wait for Thursday to come
Sunday, April 02, 2006
words resulting to reduction in loading speed***
I went Kukup!!!
I'm glad Lionel set it over the weekend
Although it was almost spoilt by stupid wallet left in office
But I still went ahead
A group of 8 headed to West of West Malaysia for some fun actions
Me, Ivan, Tisa, Lionel, Andy, Kelvin C, Kelvin P & Seh Chin
I was very excited!
It was a 2-3 hours drive
Self-entertainment was very welcomed
When we reached, it's already time for lunch
& it was sumptous!
Especially when everyone went with empty stomach
Over the meal
Kel P & I were chatting
"I brought fishing rod.."
"Really? I've always wanna go fishing but my friend always forgot to jio me"
"I go with my friend one leh"
"Sometimes Changi, Punggol, Seletar.."
"Hmm, my friend also go to these places leh"
"We fish from 10pm to 2am"
"Huh, my friend also leh...How come this time so popular ah?"
"We always go at this timing loh..My friend is from the Police Force.."
"My friend also wor"
"He got kid"
"My friend too wor"
"He drives a Honda"
"Wait... Is it a Black Honda Civic Esi with ShadowZ sticker?"
"How you know!?"
"AIYAH! DEAN LAH! MY FRIEND ALSO LOH!!!"
Both burst into laughters
"So that person is you lah?"
"He always tell me his friend, a girl, always ask him when go fishing. Very ONZ one, got dive license,
do this do that"
Knn. Small world indeed.
& then we went to rest...
KTV with a very pathetic small TV & lousy pirated VCDs
Which made us unable to sing coz we'll all go
"Wo yao yi (yi yi yi yi yi yi) shou da fan (fan fan fan fan) zi..." - Stefanie's song
Equipped with mahjong accessories I donno do what leh
Coz donno how to play mahjong & dont wanna sing
So I snapped on the bed
I then explored the area
How I love to live next to the sea
*sniff salty air*
Plus the fact that it's rural
It was very very carefree
Kel P then brought out his fishing equipment
& he taught me, Seh Chin & Andy how to fish
& Andy caught his first fish!
At around late noon
We went for a boat trip to the kelongs
My another favourite
But actually, in fact
This whole trip consists all my favourite components because it is so MARINE!
Lionel, Kel P, me & Ivan
The kelong reminded me of my Mariculture field trip in Hong Kong
But the kelong was quite 'abandoned'
Or maybe they didnt really introduced much to us
Other than showing us some big grouper, promfrets, snapper, horseshoe crab, pufferfish & archerfish
But what amazed me most is...
Dried porcupine fishs!
Back to mainland for dinner at 530pm
But since everyone had almost used up 70% of their energy playing
We gulped down almost everything
Sunset was perfect when we got back
While we slacked around with Heineken & Tiger, together with Marlboro & Dunhill
The boss came over & told us we'll be having our BBQ at 830pm
"12pm ate lunch, 5pm ate dinner, 830pm eat BBQ?!?! Come Kukup feed 'pig' isit?"
Andy is the 'most horizontal' guy among us
& so we all replied
"The boss knows you very well mahhhh"
Our feast continued
Our night never ended
We went on to play the illegal things that Singapore forbids
*click video see*
It was already 1230am when we finished the whole load of explosives
& most of them were tired
& they went to bed early
Leaving me & Kel P alone under the dark sky full of beautiful blue stars
My virgin overnight fishing
We fished from high tide to low tide
About 4 hours
& we caught 2 bottom dwellers!
An unidentified fish (someone please help me identify)
& a catfish
The catfish was damn big loh!
Kel P's rod almost snapped
& I had to help him hold the rod while he pulled the line up
That unidentified vertebrate puzzled me & Kel P
Alot of assumptions were made in order to identify
It has spines at its dorsal & pectoral fins - catfish family?
It has barbels - same as above
It has extra anal fins - cant think of any
It has adipose fins - salmon family?
It has tapetum lucidum - night active fish
It has smooth shiny skin - Placoid scales like sharks? Or no scales like rabbitfish
It secrets mucus - ?????????????????
Since it was ugly
I shall call it the 'Ugly fish' meanwhile I figure out what the hell that alien is
Boy was it fun!
The thrill of expecting the unexpected outta the unseeable depth is way COOL!
It was glad to have someone who likes fishes
So conversations wasnt dry over the hours
& I learnt alot about fishing from Kel P
Amitabha to the innocents
We removed the possibly venomous spines
& kept the bodies to show Andy we caught BIG fishes
In comparison to his tiny fish
As he kept teasing us 'fools' staying awake in absence of nicotine
(Ran out of those coz we over-puffed without realization)
I buay tahan
I concussed as soon as I landed on the queen-sized mattress
Kel P woke me up at 8am
To have breakfast
*rubs eyes, stretched body*
Day break was also very nice!
The egrets from Pulau Kukup RAMSAR flew over to feed
& mudskippers crawled out of their burrows
Last minute shopping for local delights
Bought alot of keropoks!
& we left for lunch at a country club
& highlight of the dishes
BLACK PEPPER CRAB!
Finger-licking good SHIOK!
Andy, Lionel, me & Seh Chin
Our trip included our last destination to ANY shopping mall for a short shopping spree
& we went to Jusco
Somewhere near Pasir Gudang, or whereever
Size of 3 Suntec(s)!
They have its very own ROXY shop!!
Totally shagged out
Slight traffic jam at Malaysia custom
But major human jam at SG custom
Coz someone had a fight with the police
& everyone was told not to leave the place
Even the drug-sniffing German Shepherd was on duty
The sight of SG never looks good to me on Sunday
Coz Monday needa work
I like Kukup!
& It's really fun
If you're into marine activities or interests
Best of all
It's with a group of good friends who can play together
