Fish or Crab?

Short note: I'm back in Miri now!

Four engineers, one boring night, what could we do? Fishing lah!

Usual fishing spot.

We reached our usual fishing spot at about 10p.m. This time, we brought along crabbing stuff to try our luck.

Crabbing scoop, cooking pan and fishing rod.

Just minutes after stepping our feet on the jetty, Jono and me found a crab moving in the water. We grabbed our crab scoops immediately and ready to scoop the crab up.

"1, 2, 3!" both of us whispered. We gave no chance for the crab to escape. There it went, our first crab of the night. We couldn't believe it was so easy! :P

Two unlucky crabs.

After the first crab, we didn't have much luck. We even tried to go into the water for more "victims" but only Brian managed to scoop another one.

Serious Jono.

Later on, Jono spotted a stingray. He tried to fish it but it wasn't even attracted to the bait.

Kok with the sausages.

While everyone was busy fishing and crabbing, I was given the responsibility to fry the sausages. This is what everyone was looking forward to. Eat!

Two became lots!

Of course, we didn't forget our main task; to catch more fish and crabs. Too bad, no fish was hooked.

What to do with the crabs?

We gave up on fish and targeted more on crabs. Thus, we ended up with a bucket full of crabs. What did we do to them?

Cooked and ate them!

We cooked them in boiling water and ate them fresh! The meat was so sweet without even adding any seasoning. I think those were the freshest crabs I have ever eaten. So yummy!

Mission accomplished.

Crabbing on the jetty and eating them fresh on the spot. This is indeed a wonderful experience for everyone. What an activity to end our year together! :)

Dancing Queen said...

Wah, that was a good catch indeed! How did you all "saak" the crabs? Just boil them alive ah? :)

I don't cook crabs cos I don't know how to prepare them. :(

dancing queen: We didn't "saak" the crabs. Just boil the water and let them sauna. Then you can eat liao. hahaha!

Not many people know how to prepare though. I don't think my mum knows how to cook, too. :P
