It's been a while that my jogging gang ' entertained ' ourselves by visiting the fisherman's jetty near Kuala Kemaman to buy very fresh fish and other seafood .
So, this morning we called the " taukeh kapal " to ask of the arrival of the boat . We were expecting for fish and crabs . It was about 9.10am that we reached the jetty ( about 5 minutes from Monica Bay ) and many fishermen were busy loading and unloading the catch of the day(s) . I really love to be at the jetty as I could see and touch the fresh fish that was a plenty .... felt like buying the whole box of fish . As for this morning they only had "ikan kembung" , squids and a type of prawn ( I really forgot the name , it looked like lobster ) . I bought the fish and the giant squid ( 1 squid = 1.1 kg , so imagine how big it was ) . However , no crabs today . ... we'lll come again soon , InsyaAllah .
As people say working as fishermen really hold their fate to The Al Mighty since once they go out to sea, they'll never know how much fish could they get and what type of fish could they catch and it also depends on the weather out there .
a giant squid .. 1.1 kg
I pray that those fishermen will always be blessed with the best catch every single day that they out to sea , InsyaAllah .
