Class fishing and BBQ

(This post has been backdated to reflect the date of the activity)
Post completed (7/6/08 9.13am)

I have never fished before. So when the the opportunity arose with my class, I took it. So at 10.30am, we came to Punggol End. Dunno what happened to my handphone. Many of the pics were not saved. So here's what I have.

One of the northern most tips of Singapore.

Hong Hao and Amos preparing the bait.

I dunno what were we all looking at.

The longest fishing rod I have seen. (not from my class of course!)

kwek and his portable stool. While the rest all of us had achy legs at the end of the session.

kwek again, This time "risking" his wet clothes to cut a tangled bait.

wjc trying his hand at removing a hook.

The "experienced" Hong Hao teaching Hui Jie.

Jiacheng Hui Jie and I were the only noobs who did not fish for the first time. But I think the most important thing was that we tried. Although I have to admit my attitude was not "there" as those there will know.

Gabriel was super lucky!!! He got a fish barely minutes after he came whale the rest of us was slogging out unluckily in the baking sun.

Our first unique catch of the day by Jiacheng.

A sea cucumber perhaps?

The second unique one was by Jia Rong. The pictures says all. What luck!

And a minuscule crab as a consolation prize for him. Can you find it?

No catch matched the two crabs caught by Amos! Needed two people to hold them down as they attempted to scurry back to the sea.

The main credit of course goes to Amos. The other two? Dunno leh. HH maybe got help. Not so sure for the guy on the right...

Catch of the day. Think Guo Hao got two fishes, Gabriel one small and large fishes, HH's brother one fish, Jun Hong two cat fishes and the two crabs from Amos.

--------------------------------------------------

We next proceeded to Hui Jie's condo for the BBQ. Many thanks to her for making the arrangements!

The unlikely chef! Jiarong frying the rice. The rice was good. But I think it was a little too much on the salty side.

Chuen Hwee up to his playful antics again. He was staring at the crab for quite long the moment we entered her house. Yes, we brought our catch back to her house!

kwek taking the initiative to start the fire.

No more pictures from here onwards. My handphone's battery gave up at the wrong time. For more pictures please see Jun Hong's blog.

We BBQed all the way till 10pm. It was fun considering its our last class gathering in such a setting before the A-Levels. But from the way a few people acted, its clear that people are still cliquish despite the harmony on the surface. And of course, a few freeloaders. Doing the minimum to show that they contributed, and then playing for the rest of time to gain popularity.

On the whole, the above incidences are still minor compared to the class bonding this BBQ has realised. And that, I feel us the most important thing in such a class gathering.
