Whenever I go for a stroll by the seashore and sea fishing boats, I always remember the good old saying our local fishermen adhere to. They say, after a good catch do not be selfish to give away some fish to your neighbors. The more fish you give them, the more and more prayers they make for you for a good catch always. But if you are selfish to your neighbors, their prayers will always bring you bad luck in your fishing.
I am always one of those happy recipients of fresh fish from our good fishermen. Sometimes they would come over house and bring us fresh fish and sometimes cooked fish even. That’s why I love it here.
I don’t know if we do have the same good and generous fishermen elsewhere in the Philippines. No matter what as long as they have a good catch you will never go hungry here.
