Only one Jack. Syukurlah ...

Saturday, 26 June 2010 0 comments

Assalamualaikum and 안 녕! This morning, I went to the so-called London Bridge hoping to catch the highly priced Barra but it was nowhere to be found. Today, I started with using Storm sp but unfortunately I had no luck with it so I changed it to Halco Laser Pro. Since I ran out of snaps, I had to rig a Rapala knot and as soon as I had my Halco on, it wasn't long until I got my first and only strike of the day. It was nice to see a 400g Mangrove Jack and I was hoping to catch more of 'em but one fish is all I got (syukurlah ... ). The heat of the sun was unbearable and I ran out of drinking water, so I was forced to head home happy with only one catch. (^_^)

Look at those sharp nasty teeth!

NOTE: Jack was "Catch & Release" and tonight, I'll be cheering for S.Korea in the World Cup. Haha!

Mangrove Jack @ so-called London Bridge

Friday, 25 June 2010 0 comments

Assalamualaikum and 안 녕! Woke up really early this morning to watch Japan vs Denmark and what a match! Keisuke Honda's free kick have got to be the best in the tournament so far. I imagined Beckham and Christiano Ronaldo would wish they could score a free kick like Honda. Haha! Match ended at 4.30am and I was "FBing" until 6. It has been a long time since I updated my blog so I figured I should at least and try to catch something for my blog. FYI, I caught many fish every Sunday but decided not to post it since it was caught using bait. I only post my catch when using casting method. Hehe. I caught a juvenile Mangrove Jack using Bakau soft plastic and I had a few misses as well. I met Sabri (very experienced angler who caught countless of Barra, MJs). It was nice talking to him as he was giving me a few pointers on how to target specific types of fish. I left the area around 11-ish and as soon as I got home, I checked my FB and saw Sabri's picture with a 1.1kg MJ. Haha! He's truly on fire! Anyways, if you do have the chance to meet him, ask for fishing tips and he'll be gladly to teach you how.

NOTE: Jack was "Catch & Release" and why they call it London Bridge I have no idea and it's not even an inch close to the real London Bridge. Haha! By the way, check out my new pets!

 Meet Barra and Mundi. Haha!

Crevalle Jack on Storm SP

Friday, 11 June 2010 0 comments

Assalamualaikum and 안녕! Yesterday, TK and I were searching for big Barra where friends from KB-ians Anglers claimed to have lost and snapped many lures. The area is known as Monster spot by Kolonel of KB-ians where big Barras were spotted, and lost many times. Only 2 juvenile Barras were caught by them but the big momma has yet to be found. So yesterday we tested whether the big Barra was around. But unfortunately, it was a bad day for TK as his Abu Garcia Conolon rod broke just at the tip of it while he attempted to retrieve a snagged lure up on a tree. Whereas myself, I caught a juvenile Crevalle Jack using a Storm SP. A juvenile Barra did try to smack my SP and it flew up the air at around 5 feet. Too bad it didn't get the Barra but I'm determined to try again the next day.

  Small Crevalle Jack but it was fun!

NOTE: Fish caught were not catch & release. It was given to our paddle boy for dinner. Haha!

When I'm not fishing, I BAKE! Haha!!


Assalamualaikum and 안녕! Just wanna show you what I do when not out hunting for Barra, Jacks and what not. Whenever I'm bored or in the mood, I'd probably bake something as it's one of my favorite things to do. So I'm posting some pics of my caramel custard I baked a week ago. I meant to post this earlier but I kinda got lazy visiting my own blog. Haha!!

 Ready to bake Flan

The end result, a shiny Caramel Custard

Black crumbs are actually fresh vanilla beans

Ready to serve

Ready to eat! Haha!! 

NOTE: I also make chocolate fudge cake, apple pie and apple crumble pie, white or wholemeal bread, original or chocolate cheesecake, scones, pizza dough and so on. If I start baking again, I'll try and post it for y'all to see. (^^,)
