Singapore Changi Offshore Fishing Zainol

After a very addictive bashing at Pekan for the sail fishes, it was kind of hard to look forward to a Changi trip. The two places simply can't be compared!

We had a jolly good ride up the land of boleh on a quiet Friday midnight while the slight drizzle beat away at the car. We rolled along the way until we reached our destination. We took some time in finding our Captain’s modern kampong which we would be spending the two nights. I was the earliest to hear the call of the kampong chickens as they roust me up of my short sleep. Off I went doodling with my tackle bag and fit
