Jasper and Royston are with us today for some prawn fishing. Comparing to the pricing at Marina Country Club, there is slightly cheaper at $12 per hour, $24 for 2.5 hours and $36 for 4 hours. Rental of BBQ pits are also available by requesting at the counter.
It's really not easy to catch a prawn and like fishing, patience and skill is very important. The bait used is also another consideration factor. After trying our luck for 1 hour, we only manage to catch 1 medium sized prawn. :p Well, at least it is better than none! The children enjoyed the excitement when the prawn was caught. ^_^

Hubby's good friend has booked a chalet at NSRCC and we were invited to go to today. Denver was so excited and keep reminding us that he wants to go play by the pool and not to forget to bring his water gun. We had our breakfast at the market at Hougang Ave 7, drove to visit a Prawn pond at Lor Halus (near Pasir Ris Camp) before heading down to the chalet.
NSRCC is located along East Coast and the air-conditioned 2-storey bungalows have 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms (1 on each level), a kitchen, living and dining area. The BBQ pit is located just outside the bungalow and is very convenient.
It was a rainy evening... Heavy downpour after we started BBQ. The guys have to shift the pit indoors. I'm sure everyone is stinking by now.. :p Food is just as good and a nice get-together and gathering. It was a long day and the children were knock out on our way home.

$15 for one hour session
$25 for two hours session
Punggol Marina Country Club is known for it's great seafood. We also enjoy the Chinese food served at the Hock Kee resturant there. Apart from good food, there are also sea sports activites like boating and fishing.
15mins left... Hubby tried to catch his 3rd prawn... nearly caught one.. but it slipped off. After 1 hour of 'hard work' and spending $15, we only manage to catch 2 big prawns. (that cost us $7.50 each!) :p The lady said those who are skillful and brought their own baits can catch 10-20 prawns within an hour.. Wow.. I'm sure they can have a prawn feast!
