Of Fish...

I grew up in Kuantan a coastal town on the east coast thus our diet is always never without fish. We get fresh fish daily since the fisherman would go to sea every day except during the monsoon period at the end of the year. Even that since it is their livelihood they still would go to sea to catch fish but the catch would be limited thus the price would be high. Normally they would go early in the morning and come back in the afternoon. This practice is still going on till these days. Their catch are brought to the jetty near the town and most are sold outright there. Individual get to enjoy fresh fish just caught whereas most are sold the next morning at the local fish market. Now with the Smartphone one get to communicate with amateur fisherman who go fishing as a hobby and trade with them on the phone. With the advance of the Smartphone one could even see the catch on their phone and decide on price so when the catch arrived at the shore one just made payment and pick up the fish. It is as easy as that. With the traveling time by car from Kuantan to Kuala Lumpur is the most three hours I often get my supply of fish there. Once a month a relative would bring it for us and with that we always get to enjoy fresh fish. Above is a cut of Tenggiri [Mackerel] that is fried for dinner tonight, a favorite of the family.  

Have a nice day.
