Prawn Fishing


Prawn fishing or known otherwise to some people as prawning. However, as far as I am concerned, I am sticking to calling it prawn fishing simply become the word prawning doesn't exist (I'd like to see anyone put that in Scrabble unchallenged).

It was last Sunday and we had a very full dinner with Alpha Male (which explained all the beer cans by the side as we had to clear the table to make room for more) and we were kinda looking for something to do that evening that doesn't involve any more alcohol.
So it was decided that we go prawn fishing.

It was nearby and we got there via cab in a jiffy.

We were handed a rod and off we go.

Problem is that we were still buzzing from all the beer that it took a bladdy long time to hook the tiny bait. My hands were literally shaking and my eyes are struggling to stay in focus.

Finally, we got the rod into the water and we waited. The floater bobbed furiously and I was thinking this must be my lucky day to land a big one on my first cast.

Oh wait. That's just my hands shaking. @.@

So to cut the story short, we didn't have a good haul as you can see from the pot of pepper prawns. Still, it's ok since we were still quite full from dinner earlier.

According to urbandictionary, prawning has another meaning...

I'm always amused when Singaporeans call 'prawn fishing' prawning.
