I remember there was once a time during my primary or secondary school, whereby I will just stick in front of the TV when they show this series. Apart from MacGyver, I also enjoy watching show like Nam, V, Mission Impossible and Magnum PI. But of course all that can't really beat my all time favorite, MacGyver. MacGyver inspired me remove all the parts from 386 and 486 PC. MacGyver also inspired me to build alot of other gadgets from other parts. Well, if you think know about this show, check out the video below ...

During my previous island trip, my friends took us for crab hunting. It's not mud crab or sea crab but some sort of land based crab. Well, I don't know much about crab anyway. This is another type of crab and you can't get it at seafood restaurant. Anyway, I was told that it's a land based crab, also known as coconut crab aka island crab.
So imagine walking around in the dark at night, with your torch light, looking for these crabs. Once you found the crab, you point your flashlight at the crab and the stupid crab will stop moving. It's like freeze! You are under arrest! But sometimes the crab do run and it will either go inside the hole underneath or run all the way towards the forest or bushes.
So apart from plenty of fishes to eat, we had crab for dinner. Black pepper island crab! It's delicious and my favorite part of the crab is the big claw.
Then recently, when I was in Penang, we had another type of crab for dinner. Alaskan Spider Crab cook with cheese. That's also nice but don't come cheap. Well, of course you can't compare with those island crab that you need to catch yourself. One thing good about the Spider crab is the soft shell. I don't need to use a hammer but I can actually use a scissor to cut it.
No more crab for me for now. In fact, I don't think I will eat anymore crab or seafood at all due to health reason. The next time I eat crab, well, it will be Alaskan King Crab or nothing at all!

At 2am in the morning, I feel like torturing my gf's dog .... must be due to the no fishing for many days. Also quite sick as I get food poisoning from her contaminated pork chop and pork chop burger. Ever since that incident, I only feel like eating vegetable and very light dinner.

Finally I manage to finish watching all 75 episode of this anime. Abit about Hikaru No Go ...
Plot Summary: Hikaru Shindo is just a normal 12 year old boy, but one day he's rumaging through his Grandfather's things to see if he can find something to sell and pulls out an old Go board. A ghostly apparation appears out of the board and tells Hikaru his sad story. His name is Sai Fujiwara, a man who was a Go instructor to the emperor of Japan a thousand years ago. However, because of bad sportsmanship of his opponent during a game, Sai was accused of cheating and banished from the city. With no livelihood or any other reason to live, Sai commited suicide by drowning himself. Now, he haunts a Go board, and wants to accomplish the perfect Go game, called the "Hand of God" which he hopes to do through Hikaru. If Hikaru will be able to do it or not (or even wants to) will have to be seen.
How come I ended up watching this ancient anime? It's because it's one of the top anime of all time and the character development is great. The only sad part is the manga version has a longer version while the anime one ended earlier.
I won't be watching any anime for now, might be watching Battle Programmer Shirase or Romance of The Three Kingdoms in the near future. Taufik is asking me for Hentai but unfortunately I don't watch hentai. I went running today and I have a feeling that I won't be able to run alot in the future, either the shoe is giving me problem, or the track or maybe it's the leg! I have this leg problem when I was running in the house when I was in Penang. If I can't run anymore, most probably I will need to look for another form of exercise. Su Ling want us to go into scuba diving, but I'm still considering. I realise we are into dangerous sport. Going out to sea is not about the seasick or the rough sea nowaday, but also threat from pirates! Although I have not encounter any, as I myself could be a pirate too ;) but I read alot about other deep sea angler encountering pirates ship. Imagine you have a father and mother who is into all this dangerous sport like deep sea fishing, scuba diving, etc. Maybe you will end up been a nerd or geek as you dislike your parent's activity. Well, I'm not sure about Su Ling's scuba diving, maybe it's just like climbing Mount Kinabalu, it might end up as a forgotten dream.

It had been a busy week since coming back from Pemanggil Island and Pekan. I never really had time to update anything or write anything here. Anyway, I can't use or write too much about it as my buddy, Taufik would be writting about it all in the magazine. Even photos, I can't use any unless it's bad quality ones. In fact, the one you see it here are all rejected version, either too blur or not relevant.
That's me on the photo above, fighting with the Pekan Sail Fish. It's a spectacular sight, seeing the sailfish jumping into the air!
This is the island where I stay during the first part of the trip. The pathway connect the village or my chalet to another village in the island. I stay in Kampung Buah and that path lead to Kampung Pontianak (also known as Vampire Village). A lady vampire used to stay there long time ago. You can google about the story as I won't be writing about it here. Talking about supernatural stuff, I was lucky to be invited to house of an Avatar. It's an eyes and mind opening trip, and that's another story. Watch out for my posting on Sai Baba ... in the near future.
Without the polarizing lens, you won't be able to see dark blue sea and dark blue skies. You can actually compare the photo above and the one below. Notice the sea is white (full with relection) below. That's my friend, Taufik above, excited as he's using his light action rod on a Dorado. I never know his ultra light ugly stick can actually bring up an average size dorado! Even with a medium heavy rod, it's not easy for me to bring up those crazy dorado. By the way, I'm using a Daiwa Monster Mesh rod, and Taufik actually use a rod that he always use for his pond fishing! He must be thinking that he is fishing in a big pond. Anyway, he manage to control and bring up that fish.
This is the people who make this trip possible. There's another guy, Robert, who is not in this photo. Plenty of good fishing, good food, good beer, good wine and of course good company! In fact, I have not even go for any fishing since coming back. Maybe I will go back to running first, before going for another big monster meshing.
