Working in MARDI from time to time you are required to travel to the research stations located scattered all over Malaysia. During the trip you have opportunity staying in a nice place which sometimes able to retrieved back your sweet memories. I want to share with you some of them here over times. Hopefully its would help you to trigger some good idea out of this as whats I alway do and I sincerely hope more and more peoples will share theirs like what Aizat just did.
I can still remember that last time when I was still a teenager I used to be a member of the group that pull the boat, putting cylinder shape of small logs underneath the boat as platform or galang as what they call it, making the pulling works easier. As a reward we will be given a few fish by the boat owner which I sell them for my pocket money or for paying bus fare to my school in Seberang Takir or more accurate Bukit Tok Bing, now Sekolah Menengah Ibrahim Fikri. I still remember tok ki (my grandpa) as juruselam those days, used to give me pretty lots of fish by any standard during that time. My father not always there because he often masuk kuala, meaning going to Kuala Trengganu jetty or rang ayoh mat at Seberang Takir straight from the sea to sell the catches on behalf of other fishermen. I will stori-stori in my blog Kampung Nelayan later if you like. My father is jeragang muto i.e the man incharge captaining big vessel with internal engine.
