Overnight Candat sotong trip a fulfilling one

Overnight Candat sotong trip a fulfilling one

COME rain or shine, I will never pass on an opportunity to Candat Sotong (squid jigging) off the coast of Terengganu.

And my favourite spot for squid is in Chukai, Kemaman, where I have been going almost every year.

Recently, I rounded up my sotong-kaki Ryota Hazishume, a Japanese expatriate from Osaka who have been living in Malaysia for nearly 15 years.

Hazishume-san has been fishing around the East Coast states of Peninsular Malaysia and is fond of trying out ika (squid) jigging in Terengganu.

“Hey Samo-san, I will get you some ika jigs from Osaka,” said the enthusiastic angler.

An avid angler, Hazishume is also a good cook.

For the trip to Chukai, he had prepared a special concoction to preserve fresh squid called okezuke.

“Ah, this recipe is a traditional way for preserving squid,” he said.

Apart from that, my Japanese friend also taught me a special technique on how to humanely put down a live squid.

Fuelled with enthusiasm, especially with a prospect of a sashimi and okezuke dinner, I made prior arrangment with my regular boatman Raduan who takes special charters for squid jiggers.

The drive to Kemaman is roughly about three hours from the Klang Valley via the East Coast highway and as soon as we got to Chukai, our boatman was already waiting.

We wasted no time by boarding the small vessel as the trip to the fishing holes would take more than three hours.

Squid jigging is done at night with spotlights aimed directly into the sea.

This attracts the cephalopods that are also mating in the depths.

With an artificial lure, an experienced angler can land as much as 50 -100 squids on a good day.

The variety of squids off the coast of Terengganu are the sotong Torak, mengabang and katak.

But with the unpredictable weather, we had to sit through a storm in the middle of night and made a call to head for shore as sea conditions were rough.

As a follow-up, Hazishume had organised a dinner treat in a Japanese restaurant in Subang Jaya and the menu consists squid sashimi, fresh okizuke and tempura.

Although the trip was short of an overnight affair, we were happy with the outcome as our ice boxes were filled with a fresh catch.

Big boost for tourism

Big boost for tourism

Terengganu will promote tourism based on core activities under the tagline Comel or the acronym for Candat Sotong (squid jigging) Festival, Monsoon Cup, Endurance Challenge and Leisure.

State Tourism, Culture, Arts and Heritage Committee Chairman Datuk Abdul Rahin Mohd Said the move was based on the fact that the government could not promote all tourism activities to tourists.

“Our tourism calendar starts with the Candat Sotong Festival launched by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak recently,” he said.

Rahin added that the Candat Sotong or squid jigging festival held annually for 20 years had received strong participation from foreign tourists.

“The squid jigging festival is not only held in Kuala Terengganu but also in the other districts here.”

He said the Candat Sotong festival helped to give business to tourism industry players yet to recover from the monsoon season. – Bernama.

One-way road change causing headache

One-way road change causing headache for residents, traders

KUALA TERENGGANU: Traders and residents are frustrated over the sudden implementation of a one-way road along Jalan Sultan Zainal Abidin here.

Since the traffic diversion was made a week ago, the business community here recorded a 20% drop in revenue while mat rempits have transformed the road into their own race track at night.

Electrical appliances dealer How Kok Kong, 67, said the Kuala Terengganu City Council had implemented the change without consulting with the people.

“I don’t understand the need for a one-way road as the traffic here is pretty smooth.

Big problem: A group of traders picketing along Jalan Sultan Zainal Abidin which was converted into a one way street by MBKT recently.

“In fact, the one way road had contributed to more congestion here,” he said.

How added his customers had to drive further in order to get to the shops in the area.

Restaurant owner Zawawi Muda, 54, said his customers too had complained about the traffic flow especially during peak hours.

“If the customers can’t find parking on their first try, most of them would not bother to turn back as it was far.

“The new traffic flow is not benefiting anyone,” he said.

Trader Goh Bee Ai, 34, who stays in her shophouse said she is having sleepless nights as the mat rempits would race on the road and terrorise the township after dark.

“It is obviously a joy for these illegal motorcycle racers especially on Thursday nights.

“Such activities are also endangering the people here,” she said.

Goh added the city council should reconsider their action and revert back to the two-way system as soon as possible.

The traders and residents have since sent a memorandum to the council demanding for an amicable solution to the issue.

Hot spell likely to ease next week

Hot spell likely to ease next week

THE rising temperature now is caused by reduced air humidity and rainfall in the region caused by tropical storm Aere in northern Philippines that blew hot air to the country, said Malaysian Meteorological Department (Met) weather forecasting director Saw Bun Liong.

Saw told Bernama that the current hot spell in the peninsula was only temporary and likely to ease next week.

He said the hot spell was, however, normal in May and the temperatures recorded were lower than during the same period in 1998.

The country has beem experiencing warm weather since May 6. The highest temperature recorded throughout the country since May 6 is 36.2°C.

Cooling off: Children playing at the pool at Kuala Lumpur Twin Towers due to the hot weather recently. — By AZHAR MAHFOF/The Star.

The department will continue to monitor the situation continuously round the clock and will alert the National Security Council if any action needs to be taken.

Saw advised the public to avoid open burning, reduce outdoor activities and drink a lot of water.

According to information posted on the department’s website, Malaysia is now experiencing inter-monsoon season which will last until the end of the month..

During this period the west coast of Peninsular Malaysia, Sarawak and Sabah will occasionally experience thunderstorms and heavy rain in the afternoon and fair weather over the eastern states of the peninsula.

Subsequently, the South-West Monsoon is expected from June to September. The South-West Mon-soon is comparatively drier throughout the country and this is attributed to relatively stable atmospheric condition due to less intense convective development.

It was also stated that the current La Nina condition is expected to continue weakening in the coming months and the weather will be back to normal by June.

The hot spell has resulted in more people staying indoors and drinking more water and switching on the air-conditioners.

Electrical product retailers like Courts and Harvey Norman confirmed that they had recorded an increase in sale of air-conditioners in recent weeks.

Consumers are spoilt for choice as the retailers are running promotions by air-conditioner brands like Panasonic, York, Mitsubishi and LG.

A spokesman from the Seri Andalas Fire and Rescue Department in Klang said they had received instructions to monitor the Kampung Johan Setia area, which is prone to peat fires during a drought and farmers conducting open burning of jungle waste.

“We have yet to receive any complaints about fires in the area.

“But the department has recorded fewer forest fires this year compared with previous years because we have taken early preventive measures and carry out regular monitoring,” he said.

At press time, Puncak Niaga Holdings Bhd could not be contacted for comments on the water level at the dams in Sungai Langat, Klang Gates and Tasik Subang.

Drinks cost the same despite sugar price increase

Drinks to cost the same despite sugar price increase, say restaurant operators

GEORGE TOWN: Muslim restaurants will not be increasing the prices of their drinks although sugar now costs an extra 20 sen per kilo.

Malaysian Muslim Restaurant Owners Association (Presma) president Noorul Hassan Saul Hameed said its 3,700 members would not increase the prices of drinks.

“We can easily absorb the cost,” he said yesterday.

He said restaurant operators had already reduced the amount of sugar in drinks following the Government's call for the public to consume less sugar.

“Our customers are also asking for less sugar in their drinks,” he added.

Domestic Trade, Cooperatives and Consumerism Ministry secretary-general Datuk Mohd Zain Mohd Dom had announced that the price of coarse and fine sugar would be increased by 20 sen to RM2.30 per kilo.

Coffeeshops in Sibu have also pledged to maintain the prices of their drinks for the time being.

However, Sibu Coffeeshop and Restaurant Owners Association chairman Tong Ing Kok said it would have to consider any appeal from members for a price increase.

“The prices of other ingredients for drinks such as condensed milk, evaporated milk and coffee powder have also increased,” he added.

Tong said the per-carton price of condensed milk had increased from RM124.40 to about RM148 and evaporated milk from RM105.80 to about RM127.

He added that the price of coffee powder had increased from RM17 to RM22 per kilo.

“With or without a price increase, I strongly urge our members to maintain standards and not reduce the quality of their drinks, which can result in them losing customers,” he said, advising members to comply with the association's price list on drinks.

Malaysian Chinese Food Consumers Association vice-chairman Chia Yuk Koay said he had not received any feedback from his members on the sugar price increase.

Terengganu told to promote biotourism

Terengganu told to promote biotourism

HULU TERENGGANU: Endowed with a complete tourism package, Terengganu should further promote its biodiversity to bring in more foreign tourists to the state.

Deputy Tourism Minister Datuk Dr James Dawos Mamit said Terengganu was blessed with beautiful islands and was home to the well-known Tasik Kenyir, with its unique flora and fauna.

“If we continue to focus on this biotourism product, Terengganu may well be able to pull in more foreign visitors,” he said after opening the RM3.8 million Kenyir Information Centre in Pangkalan Gawi, here.

He noted that in certain countries like the United States, Mexico and Canada, the term “biotourism” was being favoured over “ecotourism” in efforts to promote biological diversity and preservation to attract tourists.

“We also need to promote our biotourism products to woo more foreign tourists into the country,” he said, adding that Malaysia recorded 24.6 million international arrivals and tourism receipts of RM56.5 billion in 2010. - Bernama

Security heightens following Osama's death

Malaysia tightens security after Osama's death

KUALA LUMPUR: One day after the US announced that the death of its most wanted man, several governments around the world tightened security against possible retaliation from terror networks linked to Al Qaeda. Malaysia has also heightened security in key areas.

Speaking after meeting the visiting Indian Foreigh Minister SM Krishna, Malaysia's Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said a special counter terrorism taskforce is working closely with regional and international intelligence agencies to stay on top of the situation.

Mr Hishamuddin said: "Right now we have not seen any movement that will concern us...I can give assurance as of today there's no concern. Malaysia was never a target at the moment. I believe they have no plan making malaysia a target."

Malaysia recently set up a joint working committee with India to combat terrorism, arms smuggling, as well as human and drug trafficking. It is also actively sharing information with the US, UK, Australia, Saudi Arabia and China on cross border terror links.

The minister denied that Malaysia is seen as a breeding ground for regional terror networks.

He said: "It was never been seen as breeding ground. There's no room for them to breed, to train terrorism. But the world is porous now. Anywhere they exist, they move, they are mobile, they do end up on our shores and some stayed on."

Still the Malaysian authorities are not taking chances. The police have stepped up security measures at strategic locations in and around the capital, in particular the embassy enclave in downtown Kuala Lumpur.

Malaysia is also putting in place a better mechanism to screen foreigners at entry checkpoints. This after reports that terror suspects were infiltrating Malaysian schools and institutions of higher learning to recruit students.
