Gone Fishing

On our trip to Manila, my father arranged for us to go fishing in his friend's fish pen in Malabon recently. Though we almost had collective heart attacks as we thought our van would go straight into the water since the road going to the fish pens was rough road and unbelievably narrow, we eventually made it there alive and lived to tell the tale and though we caught very few fish, it was still a great bonding experience especially for the kids. Although they did fight over who gets to feed the fish, who gets to hold the fishing rods and pretty much everything else. Still, fun times.
