Restaurant Terapung, Pulau Aman
|What you see opposite this jetty is Pulau Aman. So they are really close. It is just about 10 minutes boat ride to reach.|
|The water at this jetty is the most dangerous I have ever seen. It is not because of the depth or the current but this...|
|Can you recognized the white color thingy? There are lots of them.|
|Yes, the jellyfish. They are quite big too! Just one sting enough to make me paralysed. I can't imagine what will happened to me if so many jelly fish like this giving me one sting each...hmm...I would probably die. Too creepy and scary.|
|Here we are at Pulau Aman. For your information, to go back to Batu Maung, the schedule is 10.00am, 1.00pm, 4.00pm, 7.00pm. Not accurate as well because I went back at 12.00pm. So I do believe it is every one hour once for the ride.|
|This island is really small and the main activity is fishing and the other thing is just camping. Swimming is not really encouraging because the water seems to be very dirty.|
|This island is a fisherman island. Do not look down on this island because they do have clinic and school too.|
|This is the backside of it and please do be careful when handling him because he has a lot of sharp thorns all over its body.|
|The other highlights are crabs, groupers and many other fishes. Oysters like this would be rare.|
|Nasi Goreng Special @RM40.00++|
Overall: 4/5 - This is a big plate to feed 4 pax but please look at the big and giant prawns. Those are fresh prawns too. Very delicious and they are not stingy about it. That's why they are calling this Nasi Goreng Special.
|Steamed Mantis Prawn @RM8.00|
Overall: 3/5 - The cooking service is RM8.00/ plate which is pretty reasonable but the only issue is they will only do steamed cooking style. You cannot ask for any other style and this is the same goes to other seafood such as crab. However, I do suggest that steamed is the best way to bring out the sweet, tender and fresh mantis prawn. You may find that peeling the this shell is really troublesome but do not worry because they will provide you a very sharp scissors and all you got to do is to cut of all its legs together with the thorns and its tail. After that you will able to pull out the whole meat out of the shell easily. It is really juicy and sweet. I can assure you that one is not going to be enough.
Total Damage: RM178.00
Food Serving Speed: Fast
Recommended?: Yes, at least once.
