Yippee! A prawn!
While meeting my friends for a meal at the Bottle Tree Park, I met several Japanese families enjoying their Sunday prawn fishing.
Having arrived in Singapore for slightly over a year, they have found fun ways to spend their weekends on this tiny island.
Waiting patiently for a prawn .....
It costs S$14.50 for an hour of prawn fishing, it's cheaper for 2.5hrs (S$29.00) and 4 hrs (S$43.50). Rods and bait are provided.
After our meal, my friend paid for an hour of prawn fishing. It seems easy but he wasn't able to catch a single prawn after half an hour, but the man above was a pro.... he caught a prawn every 3 minutes! We were so
We screamed ourselves silly when we caught the first prawn after 40 minutes of waiting. lol... it's like striking lottery.
In the end, we only caught two pathetic prawns.
For young children, there is a unique “Long Kang” (drain) Fishing. Cost per child is S$10 (an hour) which includes a plastic fish tank and a net. I took a peep at several kids' catch of ornamental fishes which consisted of Red Guppy, Ribbons, Swordtail, Goldfish, Molly.
The activities are rewarding, exhilarating, educational and addictive and can be enjoyed by young and old alike.
It sure beats going to the crowded shopping malls. :D
