Bahasa Sarawak

“Tikam sitok. Ibuh kuat gila, kelak jatuh di ba!” yelled my classmate from one end of the room to another end of the room where his friend was, asking to borrow a ‘jangka tolok’…

Coming from Sabah. the above sentence was one of my first, most confusing and challenging to understand as I started my secondary studies in Kuching, Sarawak. It defies everything that I knew in our Malay local language. I will try my best to list down few of the words that i know of in Bahasa Sarawak. Hope it will be of some degree of acceptance as i’ve not used this a lot in my daily conversation actually 🙂

Gambung – Sombong
Tikam – Buang
Sitok – SiniSinun – Sana
Kitak – Kita
Kamek – Saya
Kacak – Cantik
Sidakya – Dia/Diaorang
Sik – Tidak
Mun – Kalau
Ibuh – Jangan
Neh – Mana
Pollen – Tumbuk

Comment and additional words are welcomed

Bahasa Sabah

“Bida butul oh!”
“Sana kita main bubut-bubut”

Are few of the many words spoken by Sabahan. Let me try list out few words and it’s meaning. Just for the fun of it, reminiscing the times when some time ago when we were young, we always use these words and some may have forgotten the meanings. Hope this stirs up some smiles in you

Bida – Buruk/Hodoh
Bubut – Kejar
Cubuk – Intip
Geligitan – Kiut sampai mau cubit
Tagarau – Teruk

Drop me some comments if there are any mistakes in the above or you would like to add in few more 🙂

My Manual Reel

This is an example of the manual reel that I have as my spare backup when i go for deep sea fishing trip. It’s really powerful and has higher drag max value than my electric reel below, fully metal and can subject to hard usage. Another good thing it has is 6.1 to 1 ratio line retrieval which means, you can retrieve your line faster. small fix around x3 totally has no effect on this reel, you won’t feel any strain on the drag when reeling on this. I think any fish above 1.5KG only then has some fight on this thing. Love it and it becomes my 2nd fishing set as well now

My Electric Reel

Here’s some pictures that i grabbed from the Internet. Of course mine’s not as shiny anymore as it is used. It was really fun using electric reels. The best thing is you just press button or lever and it will reel itself up especially when you need to check on the bait. I changed to electric reel as my main and using this model. it’s Banax Kaigen TM500. TM is for Twin Motor so it has dual speed function ie, low and high gear.

We left the dock quite late due to some of them were stuck in the jam and even one used the public transportation. Weather was turning back soon as we left the dock. We wan into a windy, rainy and bit of waves while going out. Thoughts of what’s kind of weather are we going to encounter crossed my mind already. But besides that and first day evening rain which was heavy in the sea and it turned bit rough but just for a while, everything was fine.

Lots of people seem to get sick during the trip. I myself got sick on the last day and today while i Blog this, it seems my cough and flu now gotten worse. Probably gotten the infection from the rest on the boat. But this trip catch has gotten better for me. Still it’s below average. That big fish (ikan kapas given local name) pulled the hardest so far from all my trips. It actually bent my rod holder’s angle stopper! These fish are known to be putting a really hard and good fight.

Not sure if this will be the last trip for the year, now that i’ve tasted the use of electric reel 🙂

Cheers

Petua Memancing Di Laut Dalam/Deep Sea Fishing

Ramai yang menggemari aktiviti memancing. Pelbagai jenis kaedah dan tempat memancing boleh didapati di Sabah. Mahupun yang kolam buatan, terbiar atau liar, tali air dan juga sememangnya.. laut.

Laut juga mempunyai beberapa jenis lokasi, antaranya tepi muara, pinggiran dan juga Laut Dalam. Selain itu, terdapat juga Kolam air masin buatan manusia.

Hari ni, saya akan berkongsi serba sedikit pengalaman saya dalam aktiviti memancing di Laut Dalam. Diharapkan pemancing baru yang berminat untuk turun ke laut, mendapat sedikit petua yang berguna nanti.

Sebelum turun ke laut
– Cari dan cuba ikuti group watsapp pancing yang kini kian popular. Disini anda akan dapat mengetahui cara2, info2 dan trip2 pancingan dari saudara2 dan saudari2 penggemar pancing yang lain
– Cuba ikut trip pinggiran beberapa kali untuk merasai bagaimana rasanya berada di atas bot kerana ianya adalah berlainan jika dibandingkan dengan pemancingan di tepi muara atau di tepi laut
– Sediakan satu ‘checklist’ jika anda tidak biasa dan tak ingat semua barang yang hendak dibawa. Saya sendiripun ada checklist supaya tak lupa
– Sediakan barang2 ‘spare’ seperti rod dan kekili extra. Supaya sekiranya rod dan kekili asal rosak, anda masih boleh memancing dan tidak putih mata sahaja melihat kawan2 lain memancing
– Bawa barang2 makanan yang secukupnya supaya anda tak kelaparan di tengah malam ketika memancing

Semasa di atas kapal
– Pilih tempat tidur (bunker) yang sesuai dan berdekatan dengan tempat memancing anda yang telah ditetapkan
– Bawa barang2 pancing ke tempat pancingan anda
– Sediakan umpan dan isi ais secukupnya
– Sekiranya anda tak pasti boleh tahan Mabuk, pergi bunker dan tidur dulu
– Bermula pancing apabila Bot berhenti 😀

Petua2 menangani Mabuk Laut
Pastikan anda mendapat tidur secukupnya
– Makan ubat Veloxin atau jenis2 yang lain (ubat Motion Sickness yang boleh didapati di farmasi)
– Boleh juga guna motion sickness bracelet, juga boleh didapati di farmasi
– Jangan biarkan perut kosong, makan sebelum naik bot dan semasa perjalanan bila perlu
– Bawa barang makanan yang manis, masin, pedas dan masam untuk merangsangkan deria rasa. Ini boleh menolong supaya tak mabuk juga
– Beli sedikit minuman bergas supaya anda boleh ‘burp’ bila perlu untuk mengeluarkan gas dari perut
– Tidur semasa dalam perjalanan pergi dan balik
– Kalau boleh sediakan perambut sebelum mengikuti trip supaya anda tak perlu sediakan semasa dalam bot
– Buka cermin mata sekiranya boleh kerana akan menganggu fokus dan seterusnya membuat keadaan lebih senang dan teruk mabuk
– Sekiranya anda sudah mula rasa loya dan mabuk, teruskan ke Bunker dan tidur terus sehingga berdengkur. Dengan harapan selepas bangun nanti, anda tidak lagi berapa terlalu mabuk dan boleh teruskan memancing. Telan juga 2x pill Veloxin tu terus

Walau bagaimana teruk sekali pun, makan dan minum adalah perlu kerana anda perlu tenaga tu dan supaya tidak kehausan sehinnga Dehidrasi berlaku. Kalau teruk, makan dan minum lepas tu tidur terus

Selamat Memancing dan semoga diberkati banyak hasil 😀
