Day 3 – Kukup and home
The original plan for the morning was to visit Kukup Island National Park. But lazing around seem like a pretty good alternative. 😀
So here I was, reading Aravind Adiga‘s Between the Assassinations. The assassinations refer to Indira Gandhi’s death in 1984 and that of her son, Rajiv Gandhi, in 1991.
Took a few shots of the surrounding Kelongs. In case you are wondering, Kelong is a malay word for house built on water.
The tide is rising.
Some of our fishing neighbours caught a pufferfish. This is a fish of many names as taken from wikipedia – pufferfish, puffers, balloonfish, blowfish, bubblefish, globefish, swellfish, toadfish, toadies, honey toads, sugar toads, and sea squab.
By late morning, we were packed and took a ferry for some sight-seeing.
The fish farms.
That’s Pulau Kukup National Park. Pulau is the malay word for island.
A guided tour at a fish farm.
Our tour guide was feeling the blues.
But he soon recovered and delivered a well practised oratory of the fish farm and the sea creatures.
Our lunch was arranged at Restoran High King. We only have to inform the staff that we can from Ah Lin. There must be a well-established system in place here.
Food came fast despite the crowds.
After lunch, our coach arrived and drove us back to Singapore, again to our individual homes. It’s been a nice short getaway trip! 🙂
