THRILLIN THAILAND!


BUNGSAMRAN FISHING PARK, BANGKOK, THAILAND


Sawasdeekap, kop kun kap laptingkap!! Im back from the AMAZING land of THAILAND.This was a special trip for me as it is for my wedding in Thailand with my wife’s family members in Thailand and also to “Jum Cha” to my father-in-law who couldn’t be here to witness the KL wedding.


7SEASPROSHOP!!

Ofcourse, I arranged a little something special for the trip, a visit to Bungsamran Fishing Park for some Pla Buk / Mekong Catfish action!. I brought my younger brther along for this one just to give him a little taste of what fighting a 10kg and above fish feels like. The arsenal prepared for the trip was as follows:

Stella SW 8000 PG 08’ ( Wonderful wedding gift from my wife )
Saltiga 4500-Z S.O.M ( I just had to test this baby out! )

I didn’t bring any rods for the trip because it would be a hassle at check in….NOT, the real reason was so that I can buy new rods here in the 7SEASPROSHOP located in the fishing park. I saw on their website www7seasproshop.com that they had the Hot’s Fake Lez, I GOTTA have it…at ANY cost. I was supposed to have it earlier but there were a little complications with the transportation from Japan so now, this is the BEST opportunity for me to get the rod that I have been CRAVING for past few months since I started blogging!

FRIDAY 14th NOV 2008


THESE ARE MINE!!!!


REPORTING TO KHIAN

When we arrived, there weren’t much people around coz it’s a Friday afternoon, half the world is actually at work but lucky me and my brother, we are in the Land of Smiles, Bungsamran Fishing Park ready for some serious tackle thrashing!

The price per person had increased since the first time I was here 2 years ago. It used to be THB500 / rod, now its THB1000 / rod. Actually, for the 2 of us, 1 rod is more than enough because there will be hook-ups after hook-ups, but because I HAVE to try out my new toys, PAY and HAVE FUN.

We booked a bungalow so that we could fish in comfort, we got a guide to do all the dirty work for us while we chilled and relaxed at the bungalow. The cost breakdown for the entire trip is as follow:

TAXI RIDE THB500 to and from the place from Sukhumvit Soi 8
BUNGALOW THB800
2 RODS THB2000
1 GUIDE THB1000
2 ROD RENTAL THB1200
REFUNDABLE DEP. THB2000

TOTAL MINUS DEPOSIT – THB5500 = +/- RM550.00 = FARKING FUN LOR
This is the address and Tel number of 7SEASPROSHOP. You can call and ask for directions. Just make sure you tell the cab driver to go by meter and NOT use the highway.

Just get onto Navamin Road, look out for Soi 42, turn in and drive ALL the way inside. It will be a good idea to tell the cabby to came back and pick you up as it is kinda difficult to get a cab in that place.

Well back to fishing. We’ll just let the pictures and smiles do the talking from here. ALL fishes were minimum of 15kg. All in we landed 12 fishes, lost 2 in a span of 3 hours before we were super exhausted. Don’t forget to bring your own Fishing Belt. I took the opportunity to buy one there, but 1 isn’t enough when you get double hook-ups like ALL the freakin time!


FREAKIN PROMISING!!

The BIGGEST CATCH


IM SERIOUS...its HUGE!

It’s a good idea to get the guides. They make sure you get a fish. They know where to cast, the ingredients for the bait, and they change the bait like every 5 minutes! Well worth your money.

After 3 hours of SOLID fishing, Christopher had the biggest catch of 20kg plus. After that one, the white flag came up and he suggested we stop fishing already coz he couldn’t feel his arms no more.

We walked back to the tackleshop and took a more serious look around. This place is HEAVEN for fishing kaki’s. they hav the FULL range of the 08’ Stella’s, SEVENSEAS Rods, Poseidon’s, Valley Hill, Blue Roses and…..wait a minute, I didn’t see my HOT’S! I was a little worried when I couldn’t find it. I tried helplessly talking to sales girl but she had no idea what I was talking about and I was about to get REALLY furious!


How can we forget..."NGAU JUK"

Suddenly, a familiar face walked in, It was a guy I’ve seen on the fishing DVD’s, I believe he was JAI, the owner of the place. Thank god he spoke English and THANK YOU WHOEVER IT IS UP THERE that he spoke in “tackle talk” to me. He said he can get the rod for me, but only MONDAY. I was like no issues, bring it on, I’ll see you on Monday. In the meantime I would like to take the Valley Hill rod to go. It was a red colored rod, Explorer. I never liked red rods so I have no Idea why I even looked at it. After that deal, we headed back to Citadines Hotel in Sukhumvit Soi 8.

The next few days, I just chilled in the room and wondered why I chose that Valley Hill. I couldn’t take it no more, Red isn’t really my color so I decided, I will get the Poseidon instead. PE FARKING 4 just like KHIAN.

MONDAY 17th NOVEMBER 2008

Monday I headed to 7SEASPROSHOP to check on my rods arrival. I was so excited that I didn’t even call them. Big Mistake, the rod hasn’t arrived yet. The guy told me Wednesday morning. I was FURIOUS! Im leaving on Wednesday evening, Wednesday morning is just cutting it too close! But they were cool, telling me for sure I will have the rod and if need be, they will send it to the airport for me.

That was a pretty cool deal. I told them I will take the Poseidon too, have it packed by Wednesday morning.

WEDNESDAY 19th NOVEMBER 2008, 8am

I couldn’t sleep the whole night. We stayed at my brother-in-laws place, quite far from civilization. I was so worried that I wouldn’t catch a cab at all. I waited for the phone call like I was waiting for my exam papers.

At 11am sharp, I received a phone call. It was “7SEASPROSHOP di ka” I jumped up, ran downstairs, wished my wonderful in-laws good morning and told them I gotta go. I ran out of the house and god smiled upon me again, there was a CAB just about to leave the area I was staying in.

I jumped in, passed him the address, he nodded and we were off to see my new TOY! The excitement in the cab nearly killed me!

When we arrived, I told the cabby to wait for me and I will give him a THB200 tip. I ran straight into the shop, only to see a saddened face lady saying, “SORRI SER, YOU HAVE WAIT HAF HOUR MORE?” Im like are you kidding! For sure. In 20 minutes, my new baby arrived. The moment was ….just special. Its like a rod going back to its rightful owner.

To all who is reading this blog, I would appreciate if you stood up now, and show some respect to the NEW owner of a HOT”S FAKE LEZ rod!! Mr G.T King! I will post up pictures of the rods later ( Fake Lez + Poseidon ) as it is 3 in the pagi so I really need to sleep.

Thank you thank you….far too kind, far too kind.

“SOMETIMES CAN” Anglers…this time VERY CAN!
