We made a trip to the Children’s Kampung (means “village”) on Sunday to check out the place. We’ve heard of this place many times but never really get a chance to take a peep.
It was a small decent place, meant for kids to do some so-called “fishing”. Though there was a have downpour earlier in the morning, the place was extremely warm & humid but we still had a fun time!
There was this small man-made stream where small fishes are being released into the stream, just waiting for the kids to fish them or to be tortured! Hahahahahaha!!
Well, I have to say that my 2 men, Rainer & Ethan had a go first at trying to fish with a tiny weeny net & a small bucket. Only an adult can accompany their kids and so I had to stand at the sideline watching them. I was all geared up to take some shots of them & it turned out brilliant with some natural light.
But let me tell you something which DH would not like to hear but I still have to tell you! DS & DS spent half an hour chasing the fishes, running all over the places, hoping they could catch them just leaving the bucket & net in the water! As if they will swim right into it!! Gosh, men & their brilliant idea!!
However, they only managed to fish only 1!! Just 1 fish after all the running about!!
Can you believe that??!! So, there I was requesting DS to let me have a go at it instead. I went in letting DS to do the netting until he gave up & I just grabbed the net & said to them “just watch me alright”.
I was observing how these fishes just swam away really really fast whenever they see us approaching them. So, what I did was I used my left hand to shoo them to my right & my right hand was all ready with the net, waiting for them to be trapped. Hah!!
Guess what? It took me just ten short minutes to get 7!! Hahahahahahaha!! I turned to DH & DS & said “this is how you do it!!”. And they were rolling their eyes listening to me boasting away my catch!!
It brought my memory back to the days when I was a little kid where I used to catch fishes & tadpoles with plastic bags just behind Granny’s place in the village. Those were the days I really enjoyed my chilhood doing all these stuff.
Guys, pleaseeeee……… you could do better than this!!
These “Koi” fish is supposed to bring luck if you keep them in your house
