Do u know this cat?












Ok I know type like this loitering in your void deck are common.
This cat actually is under the care of a old granny at a fishing tackle shop at changi village. Anyone who frequent this tackle shop should know this cat. I cudn't help but to notice this cat is always lurking around either for a good scratch or warm comfortable spot to booze. I once saw her challenge other cats in the neighborhood at night.

Is it a cat's nature to sleep in the day and create havoc at night? I took this pic last weekend..she got to be drained from last night victory or sleeping to boost up stamina for the night...maybe granny should stop feeding her those boring dry pellets as I think the cat is already sick of it. Thats why kitty go berserk at night. Hah, I really dunno..

Why am I talking about cats now?? I just love cats, that simple. I love to feel their warm soft body and enjoy cuddling them on my lap. During my younger days, I used to bring home stray cats to play and sent them back to void deck before my mum finds out. As you see..my mum can only tolerate small sized creature like fluffy hamsters or cute mice in the house..sigh..

Back to cats, they are actually devoted pets that are affectionate and loving to their owners. However, some people think that cats are haughty creatures that show little affection(dear u noe who I am referring to). This is however not very true. I have known some cats who are very attention seeking and even get very jealous when their owner got themselves new pets.

Quick Cat Fact 
Studies show that petting a cat is good for your health and can lower blood pressure and reduce stress.

I know I might not convince some hardcore cat haters or members from ACS(Anti Cats Society) still.. I leave it to u guys, I'll stick to mine.

One nice pic below to maybe soften your heart.
Just look at their eyes...

 
Some day, some how, I gonna lay my hands on one of these kitties once I have my own space. I vow to get one +_____+

Back after a long break

t has been some time since I had my last post and I am back again. My absence doesn't mean I have not been fishing lately, I will always try not to miss any fishing opportunity heheh..I am always thinking about fishing at any time of the day and can you imagine even when I am slumbering.

Thinking of that, I have almost given up my other hobbies like baking, craft work & cooking just to fork out more time on fishing ever since I started this new hobby with mike. My only regret is why have we not started this interest earlier! Well..it is still never too late to start. As I look back our past fishing encounters, we were amateurs (in fact still am now:>) and were even so happy catching small fishes! I recalled how happy I was getting my first catch although it was a small pathetic slimmy catfish! We were so inexperienced way before and so glad we learnt a lot through our mistakes by picking up tips from other anglers


For the past few months, we went to a Johor Bahru fishing pond and really like it there.
The surrounding is very peaceful and the kampong style makes one very relaxing to fish. You can catch quite a variety of fishes like Kim, grouper, snapper, golden promfret etc and I can tell you they are of good sizes. The other highlight is, you dun need to burn a big hole in your pocket for this place. Price here is way much cheaper, luv this place :D
                                                                                                     
















My 1st wolf herring
















My rod secs before the wolf herring striked
In case you wonder why on earth a saitoh/wolf herring appearing in a fishing pond, let me tell you why..I heard this salty guy must have slipped through the dam when the staffs were changing or letting in the sea water. That means there could be other marine species dwelling here as well! Good:) But this is the only interesting creature I caught so far..







Mike's small kim
















Then his biggest kim


















We usually bring our catch to a nearby seafood restaurant call Todak to cook it. The prices there are very reasonable and have a wide range of seafood. Imaging a plate of sambal lala or tua tao for only RM10! Please do not expect No Sighboard or Long beach standard it will be definitely better than any good sze char stall you find around in singapore. What I especially like about eating at Todak is you are able to receive singapore signal like starhub or m1 there because the restaurant is somewhere near sembawang port. So we usually make our calls or sms while having dinner there, really nice :)
I couldn't find pics of those delicious dishes I took so unable to post it. Go t this website for interesting writeup and wonderful pics. You will know what I mean:)


Restaurant entrance
















Fried kim
















Fried wolf herring (saitoh)














These were cooked at other restaurant in JB which is famous for their herbal roasted duck.

Todak Restaurant(Orang Asli)
Business Hour : 11:30am-11:30pm
Address : No.1, Orang Asli, Telok Jawa, Masai, 81750 JB
Tel : 07-3863696
Website : www.rest-todak.com.my

For those who are keen on the fishing pond, I am not able to obtain an exact address details from them(the staffs there don't even know omg!) because u see the place is really quite ulu..

As the todak restaurant is in fact very near to the pond I suggest you find out from people at restaurant on how to get there exactly. I am road dummy and lucky mike is good at it. I remember we managed to get there initially after asking a villager ah peh for direction:).

I will back for more cr :>
