Fishermen Care

Fishing is an occupation that can never be ceased as we need fish for food. During my stay in Kota Kinabalu, I took time to observe people who make their living through fishing. The boats seen at Kota Kinabalu sea made the place looks lively and beautiful. Unlike KK, Kuching is just located near the river (Sarawak River) and has been labelled as polluted. by the government Furthermore, the river is not blue like in KK (hehehe...of course la...it's a sea! What am i talking about?)
(I was surprised that the sea water is actually clear. You can see the sand and stones underneath)
(Boats become the mode of transportation for people living in "Kampur Air" or Village by the sea)
(Fishing boats docking)

I have a high respect for people of the sea... they work real hard so that people like us who seldom fish will be able to get a good brain food with omega 3. Haha Nice pictures as always ^^

i hope the ppl of KK maintain the cleanliness and their livelihood...=)

Well, I think rivers near townships are usually polluted. But yeah, KK's ocean is superb, except the tourist islands nearby where mostly are dead corals.

Wow blue water~

With rain lately, it would be hard for them to go to sea right? Must really thank them for their hard work :).

only in Kuching the water is murky. that's why i dont really like to swim at Kuching's beaches. layan blues tepi pantai bole la.

Merryn said...

a fishing boat.. in the middle of the sea.. nice! better than being in da middle of a river.. blek..

Faizal n Fashitah said...

Reason becoz fishing is part of punca pencarian yang penting di sinun ba. Memang kacak laut KK nun.. that's why banyak ikan. Also, I heard seafood murah2 jak sinun hoh XD

Rej said...

nice shots!

Mei Teng said...

I would not be able to appreciate fishing because I don't have the patience for it.

Rose said...

Yeap they still have blue sea in KK. Sayang, our river in Kuching is like tea-c. It makes me dislike touring along the Kuching Waterfront, as I can smell the "unpleasant" smell from the river. :p

Btw, nice pics you have here. Have great weekend.

I have a few friends whose family is in the fishing business and the stories that they tell me really make me appreciate their hard work. It's hard and long work, risky too. Nice pix you posted up btw. I've never seen clear or blue ocean water before...would love to some day.
