Valentine’s day is an occasion I loath, and I believe that a lot of guys probably share the same sentiment. Restaurants are packed, traffic is terrible, and plants are mutilated for the sole purpose of the male human species trying to impress its female counterparts.
It is terrible.
But like the saying “when in Rome, do as the Romans do” goes, sometimes you just need play the game.
However, that does not mean playing the game just like everyone else, a little bit of effort and some thoughtful planning is all that it takes to have a memorable Valentine’s Day.
as a bonus, they serve tomyam there!
On Valentine’s Day, I took Haze for a prawn fishing session. While this appear to be quite a weird activity for Valentine’s day, prawn fishing is quite special for us. It was what we did on our first date.
I initially wanted to go to the very same place at Selayang, but since that particular place has ceased operation, we went to Tropicana Prawn Fishing center instead (GPS: 3.133312,101.601144).
a piece of chicken liver can net you a lot of prawns.. if you’re skilled
For a couple hours we sat there and… caught 1 prawn per person. That worked out to be something like RM 50+ for the two prawns. (RM 15 first hour, RM 12 subsequent hour per fishing line). Not exactly an economical to get prawns if you are a noob like us. The “pros” can easily get 10 times as much in the same time frame.
Oh, by the way, Tropicana Prawn Fishing center also serves Thai/Malay food. We ordered a bowl of tomyam to share and it was really spicy and kao, perhaps we’ll try having dinner there or something one of these days.
Now those two prawns are in the koi pond. How was your Valentine’s Day?
