The scenery above was captured at the fishing village of Kampung Batu 3, Segari in the district of Lumut, Perak.
We made a detour and stop over that evening to get some fresh supply of sea foods we hope to grilled while spending the night in Teluk Senangin by the beach.
We managed to buy and make do with some L size prawns at RM48/kg. while the boat for the fishes and squids was yet to arrive according to the fishmonger. Maybe some other time, we just did not want to wait. Beside the prawns, we also had chickens on the ember that night.
This probally the typical scenario in the morning at the beach where a veteran fisherman, i chatted with, and his big family lives. The catch was not that good today, he said.
The boats arrived at the beach in the morning with the catch in a few bundle of nets. His son who has taken his role casting the crabs will then disentangle the crabs and some fishes that are trapped with it.
He don’t have to reach to customers, because they are always standing there waiting for him to finish the job. The catch you see in this picture was ours. We manage to booked it first before the others. Rm25/kg.
We drove home from Teluk Senangin to traffic crawl last Monday just before the Sultan Yusuff Bridge which crosses the Sungai Perak in Teluk Intan. The price you normally pay for travelling during a festival holidays in Malaysia.
If the end of the previous weeks supposed to be a weekend getaway then we have gotten away practically every week! I am staying put and be lazy this weekend, schools is about to reopen.
