It’s been a while since our last visit to Saung Apung. The last time we came here was to celebrate Rama’s 4th birthday with some families and cousins. But here we are, again visiting Saung Apung for another relaxing break. This time we get to sit in a bungalow and right on top of the fishing pond. Rama was super excited! He can’t wait to get himself a fishing rod and catch one to take home. Here you need to pay Rp2.000 (around USD 0.15) for one pax of fish lure. Quite cheap since the pax can satisfy your fishing hunger for ages, like literally long enough to make you bored if you’re not in to fishing that much. It really depends on how you do your fishing and how patience you are waiting for your bait to get caught by the fish, rather than taken by the ducks or accidentally drop from your rod. We were all enjoyed the time spent there while watching Bowie and his father tried to catch a fish for Rama. It wasn’t easy to catch one since our bungalow spot had some un-invited visitors, Mr. and Mrs. duck.
Bowie was quite determined to catch some fish though, even my father in-law was getting in the mood and starts to tell a bit of his younger time while fishing in the sea. Teeeheee…I think he might bring Rama and Bowie to the sea if he’s still in to fishing. Thankfully he’s retired from those days and now prefer a still water like a pond which is easier and less risky than the sea. I would definitely prefer fishing in the pond. I don’t really like the idea spending the night at sea on a boat. It spooks me out.
By the way, you need to take off your shoes though to sit in this bungalow. My advice, keep it simple on the shoe preference. You don’t want to look silly wearing a boot that’s hard to take off and end up sitting in the corner of the bungalow with your feet lay down.
