The boys marveled at tales of childhood adventures told by their daddy. Tales of catching grasshoppers, catching fishes in canals and rivers, stealing eggs from chicken coops and kampung life adventures.
They could not believe that life could be that fun when the daddy was a boy.
So, we brought them to have a taste of fishing in the river.
Their little eyes lit up with excitement.
We brought nets and an empty plastic fish tank. The boys were dressed in casual T-shirts, shorts and slippers. They were thrilled that they could actually walk into the river to catch fish with their nets and bare hands.
While the boys were having fun in the river, the girl and I watched on. She was too young to get into the river.
The boys were satisfied with their catch of the day… 3 little guppies, for 2 hours of fishing.
I guess they were more than happy with the experience itself, that they wouldn’t mind even if they did not catch anything.
I think every child should try this, at least once in their childhood.
