Have you ever gone fishing?

Last Saturday night (here) I was able to chat a bit with my family. I saw my cutie Elisse who kept on dancing with her favorite tunes, talked with my dear brother, my mom had some crying moments (she said she misses me) and dad proudly showed me his big big catch!

My dad always goes fishing, almost weekly. This time around her caught his first record of 10kls fish named Apahap. Dad told me he had another catch but his rod snapped and lost it. It's ok since they pay their catch per kilo so he spent quite a fortune that day. In that fish pond you can have the option to buy your catch or leave it there for other people who wants to take home some fresh fishes. Of course dad won't let his chance pass not bringing home this great catch, he paid Php1,500 for that fish! hahahaha that's too much! It can buy a good amount of entire groceries already for a family. He told me he was given a big discount since it was weighed for Php2,000. I'm fine with his decision, just looking at his photo with a great smile makes me smile too. I asked him to send me a photo of his catch and here it is. I saw his fish when he excitedly brought it up my room (at home) to show me on cam as we chat! He can barely lift it. This photo doesn't give full justice with the fish size, it's actually bigger if you see the fish in full length.

I miss that place where dad goes for fishing, went there several times with Elisse and one time with my husband. Maybe I should blog about it next time since I have nice photos taken there. It's a very relaxing place where you can just stay there by the nipa huts by the pond and have some picnic or w=even take a good nap. The air so fresh but expect the hot sun. You'll definitely get a tan if you spend the day there. Who cares if you can have more fun fishing, right? I had the chance to try fishing but I'll need more practice for a good swing. I know blogger Bengbeng loves fishing aside from photography since he had some fishing series posts.

Do you have any fishing experience? How do you think about this as a hobby?

  5. Ayie Says:

    since he had his bypass surgery he got so much into fishing, that way he's getting relaxed from work and it's a good stress reliever, the place is not too far from our place so it's ok.

    hehe maybe fishing out girls tekkaus! ahahahaha you're a dead meat to your wifey!

  6. Ayie Says:

    I was actually surprised with mom since she's the real tough one and never really shows emotions. So don't be surprised why I seem to be so ok here being far away from my family. Mom has taught me well how to be independent and tough. Maybe coz I'm the one who talks to her much and gives her advices at times. I told her I should be happy coz it's bad for baby to be stressed and crying =)

  7. rainfield61 Says:

    I used to go fishing when I was a small child, but not now due to certain reason.

  8. Ayie Says:

    well everybody has their own sports and hobbies, just like you loving to swim...right?

  27. Ayie Says:

  28. Ayie Says:


    then you're off to just eating fishes then! =P

    you can always try next time maybe you'll have more luck =)

  29. levian Says:

    your dad sure looked proud n happy in that photograph!
    i had went fishing once, it was slow but every time we got 1 fish, we are squeaking like crazy.
    it was fun. XD
    btw, how do you chat with your family? through phone? through webcam? you mentioned "seeing" elisse too.
    made me curious. :p

  30. Ayie Says:


    it's really big and I'm happy for his catch! thanks

  31. Ayie Says:


    not only big eng but extra heavy =) he was struggling to lift it when he showed me

  32. Ayie Says:


    i can go for fishing as a hobby but not to clean and cook it later too

  33. Ayie Says:


    ok will definitely write about it later on but for tomorrow something special's up for me to blog about

  34. Ayie Says:

    mummy sexy,

    yes think happy thoughts! =)

    funny that when i was home they always complain of my moody antics and now they are missing me so much! hehehe I think elisse is not enough to pacify mom...she even reminds more of me coz we have so much similarities

    no sun for you? haha that's why your skin is so fair! mummy sexy so vain =) hehe

  35. Ayie Says:


    fishing is relaxing and rewarding when you have a catch...i also feel the same when we get a pull form the reel

    i chat using Yahoo Messenger and we use headset and video cam. no typing juts pure talking and seeing each other =)

    I'm still busy today...the whole day and tomorrow i will be back to the doctor. You'll see me blogging away again by the end of the week most likely. In a while i will give bro in law driving lessons and still need to pick up hubs. haha what a day!

  36. fufu Says:

    i always wanna go fishing... guess can only do it in Sibu when i go visit bengbeng :) or you in the states... you gotta teach me how to master the swing~~

    wow that's a big fish!!

  37. now that's definitely a big catch. i don't have any fishing experience but it's a treasured hobby for millions of people.

  38. ladyviral Says:

    Ah yes swimming.. I guess so heeheh... sleep still is the best though... I seriously swear, I lose more weight when I sleep more :P.

  39. Ayie Says:


    I haven't even mastered it muself! hahaha! I don't do fishing here, there in the philippines. If you go there and we're also around then we can go to many places and eat eat eat too! hahaha

    Bengbeng will be so happy if you'll visit him again. hehe

  40. Ayie Says:


    It will be nice if you can try it even once, who knows you might enjoy it too! =)

  41. Ayie Says:


    sleep according to study is essential for diets and weight loss =) so by doing that, you can be on your way to a slimmer you! hahaha

  42. levian Says:

    what a day indeed!
    it sounded fun too, at some point.
    again, you made you feel like it's so cool to work from home. :p
    sweet! seeing each other like they are really there.
    you can see them quite often this way. :D

  43. Oh my! The fish is so huge.

  44. Ayie Says:


    Not that often coz everybody's busy there and it's hard to catch up with the time. It's ncie to work at home but there are pros and cons with it. Of course regular office employment has more regular income on standard basis. It still depends on what industry you are in for work at home to be really efficient.

  45. Ayie Says:


    haha must be my dad's lucky day to have such a big catch! =)

  46. levian Says:

    ah true, unless only few persons are involved then the gathering would turn out to be easier.
    but technology sure has made communication much cheaper n easier to achieve.
    lucky for you, living away from home are much inviting this way too. :)

  47. Bengbeng Says:

    that is an incredible catch. it wouldnt have been easy to bring in that one. Bengbeng will b glad when Aiyie and Fufu comes to Sibu :)

  48. foongpc Says:

    Wow! That's a really big fish! I've never go fishing before! It will be a new experience for me!

  49. Ayie Says:


    I'm just thankful with today's technology...it can truly bridge you over distances.

  50. Ayie Says:


    Now that I know too many blogger friends there in M'sia, I can feel comfy now setting plans laid out for M'sia. It's always being moved and postponed but maybe next time around we'll land there!

  51. Ayie Says:


    Then go to Sibu and tag along with Bengbeng, he can give you fishing lessons I guess. hehe

    try it even just once, it's fun and can be boring too if you won't get a catch! hehe I can't say it's all fun coz It'll be a lie.
