Gone Fishing!

I read about Meekfreek bringing Izzy to Kids Kampong last weekend for longkang fishing and I thought it was fun! Then, I received Joyce's sms and she invited us to join her and Meekfreek to Bottle Tree Park for longkang fishing on Saturday. Of course I said YES! I told Jaimie about the weekend plan a few days ago and she was looking very much forward to it. In fact, she was into "fishing" lately. She would sit on the sofa and dangle a string to the floor, claiming that she was fishing.

When we reached the Bottle Tree Park, she wanted to jump into the longkang immediately but we held her back and asked her to wait for her friends to arrive. She was really, really excited about the longkang fishing. While waiting for Cherrlyn and Izzy to arrive, she admired people's catch.
Finally, she went into the longkang. She was so happy to catch the first fish. Wait, I think it's Clement who caught the fish. Nevermind.

Well, actually it was Clement who caught all the fish because it wasn't easy to catch the very "street wise" longkang fishes! They knew how to hide from the fishermen! Jaimie was just following behind Clement's backside most of the time.


Same for Chai San, he was the hero who caught all the fishes for Cherrlyn.
Here comes Izzy. She was reluctant to join in at first...

but later Jeff needed to take some time to convince her to get out of the longkang. So did the rest of us. The kids (and their daddies) had such a great time playing in the longkang!


After an hour of water fun, we had dinner together at the restaurant. The food was yummy yummy yummy! Thank you, Jeff and Meekfreek, for the generous treat!

After dinner, we took a walk around the park...
with our pets.

The girls had fun running, jumping and taking pictures...




...while the mommies had a great time chit chatting.

The children had some more fun at the playground before the sun set.


We had such a fun filled afternoon! Jaimie said she wanted to go fishing again. Yes, we'll definitely do this again!

Hi have been reading your blog from Vincent's blog. The 3 girls looked like they really enjoyed themselves at the Park! would definitely plan a lokang fishing outing for my 2 year-old soon, I think she being quite tomboy-ish would like the idea. :) And your bentos and Rachel mommy's bentos never fail to give me the motivation to pack from home, even though it may be the occasional homemade effort on my part.

I love the place the moment I set my feet in that ground last year. Those are awesome shots you took!
