Trip to Pulau Ketam (Crab Island)

Interesting that this island, off Klang Port (the now infamous money losing PKFZ), is called crab island. Did not see any crab there, but had the chance to see lots of crap underneath and around houses built on stilt.

I was invited to join my friend, Chan, on this excursion organised by the Photographic Society of Petaling Jaya (PSPJ). Cannot remember why I did not want to organise a trip to this island when I was heading the organisation. Guess I had not been inspired on my many trips there. I could only remember cyclists, houses on stilts, mud-skippers, a couple of temples, coffee shops, fishing vessels, and nothing much aside from these.

This trip was probably my best, as there was a chance to see some 'action' shown below:

A fisherman drying salted fishes. Seldom get to see this on a beautiful day.

There are also smaller species being dried.

one way to take the pix

another way to do it!

And this table football machine which I used to spend a lot of time with when I was a student in UK. Why did I not think of making one like this instead of spending lots of money feeding the machine.

Tourist angle

A slightly more personal angle

An angle not many photographers will take from. I like this angle best. Some people will take quite a while to figure out what these objects are.

And the highlight of the day is probably this, taken on the ferry ride back to the mainland:

All the pictures above were taken with my Panasonic LX3.
